Why Pia Calo chose La Spezia

This comfortable apartment in a beautiful historic building has belonged to the family for a long time. The city of La Spezia is privileged because is close to the sea, Cinque Terre, Lerici, Portovenere, as well as cities of art such as Pisa, Florence, Arezzo. Convenient for all kinds of excursions.

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!

Casa accogliente e signorile da consigliare

  • 5 of 5

una ottima sistemazione da consigliare. L' appartamento, situato in un bel palazzo d' epoca, è accogliente e ben organizzato. i proprietari, Pia e Franco sono stati sempre disponibili e ci hanno aiutato, con i loro consigli, a pianificare al meglio la nostra sosta a La Spezia dove, oltre alle 5 terre, facilmente raggiungibili in treno, ci sono altre mete stupende, no sempre pubblicizzate. Da non perdere una escursione alla Isola Palmaria, ragiungibile con un servizio di barche dalla spendida Portovenere. L' appartamento è al centro, vicino al mare e con in prossimitá un negozi ed un grande supermercato aperto anche nei giorni festivi. In pratica un alloggio da consigliare in un luogo da visitare.

Bel appartement

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons séjourné chez Pia et Franco en avril 2016, l'appartement est bien tres grandbelle cuisine er salle a manger. Ideal pour 1 couple d'adultes belle grande chambre avec 1 chambre pour enfants ce n'est pas aménagé pour 4 adultes. Il est près du port donc bruyant mais pas tout le temps. Nous avons bien dormi quand même. Il faudrait aviser les gens que les travaux en façade ne sont pas terminés ce qui fait qu'on ne voit pas bien a l'extérieur. Franco est d'une grande gentillesse et ses conseils sont très utiles. Le marché est tout à côté et pas de problème de stationnement. Je recommande avec certains bémols, travaux bruits si vous avez le sommeil léger et adapté pour un couple avec enfants. Diane , Québec Canada.

Owner's Response: Dear Diane, thank you for your review, I just wanted to point out that the works on the building are already finished, they were made for an emergency but now are over. Also the 2nd bedroom that now have to single beds can easily became a double bed to host a couple. I'm happy you liked the apartment and I hope to have you again as my guest. I wish you all the best, Pia
