Location is disappointing

  • 2 of 5

While the apartment itself was nice, the location- directly across from the container terminal is the worst. A huge container terminal/port blocks all views. The terminal works 24/7 and is so noisy you can't open any windows. The owner was lovely but I cannot honestly recommend a stay.

Great place to stay in La Spezia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped and furnished. It is also well located as it overlooks the quayside and you can find few buses lines just downstairs. Presence of shops nearby and you can easily park your car in the neighbourhood.

The owner is very friendly and helped us a lot by answering all our (sometimes weird) questions; he can easily be joined by phone and even by Whatsup.

We stayed there with our two little boys who enjoyed their time watching all the activities of the industrial port.

Actually, the port was a positive point and the only negative one of this apartment because of the noise at night, but we finally got used to it and it didn’t wake up the kids at night.

In two words: very good choice of apartment. A big thanks to the family Calo – Scopesi for all you help!

Absolutely loved our stay, will be back ASAP!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Apartment in a fantastic location! This apartment has everything you could want and more, making you feel as if you living a luxurious Italian life. The hosts were very accommodating as well. They spoke great English and communicated very well making it a smooth easy stay. Will absolutely be coming back. La Spezia is a great town that is a perfect hub to visit any of the Cinque Terre, Portovenere, or to travel to the bigger cities like Milan or Rome.

Pas l'appartement initialement retenu

  • 2 of 5

Dommage, un peu loin du centre ville, il fallait prendre le bus pour se rendre au centre. Pas le même charme que l'appartement loué initialement.

I have come to this area (5 terre) many times over the years as I am truly in love with it. For this reason,I was able to stay in many different apartments in the area and let me let me tell you this is definitely one of the best.

The apartment is beautiful and very close to shops and restaurants and the hosts were wonderful people and available all the time.

Thank you for everything Giuseppe !
