La Selva does have spectacular views and is very quiet but we feel the website is misleading as this should say that apartment ST02 is one of 7 apartments. It does say it has multiple rentals but only 2 apartments come on the website so we read this as being just 2 apartments plus owners living on site. The photos on the web page only show the larger apartments which we feel are misleading when the small one ST02 is not illustrated at all
The drive in and out of La Selva is very steep with 7 hairpin bends (in fact my wife had to get out and direct me on many) and it should state that a small/medium car is required (we had a Mercedes E Class estate). We were told by Enrico to enter La Selva by the top road and descend down to it, and to leave by the bottom road, so to use the car to go to the beach would mean a long round trip of 5.3km km.
The pool is lovely but is down three terraces using very steep steps some of which are very rough and uneven and is not mentioned on the description. The sea is a 10 minute walk down the steep drive or via steps but is very hard going back up (not a few minutes as described). We also expected to have 2 sun loungers per apartment, not having to share with the neighbours. The sun loungers were also very tatty.
In the apartment we had no wine glasses, no bedside tables. No information pack to say where nearest supermarket, bread shop is etc. which would have been useful. I know Enrico is on site but it is still useful to read it yourself. Apartment ST02 only has 1 door and 1 window so there is no through draft so it is terribly hot. There is a fan in the bedroom but all this does is to circulate hot air, so an air conditioning would be much better.
We make these comments to help people decide if this apartment is for them. All reviews are 5 stars which is one of the reasons we choose La Selva but felt disappointed when we got there for all the above reasons.
Thanks for your opinion but we want join some precisions.
a) you asked us an apartment available in August and we previously said that those published online were already rented and there was a possibility to have another one, smaller and very cheaper. I sent you a brochure with descriptions and pictures exactly consistent with reality.
b) you saw this alternative apartment and you gladly accepted to stay in it, also for the very low price;
c) the slope of the land is a Ligurian feature that covers a bit 'all the coast, from the Cinque Terre until Ventimiglia. Every road crossing a slope ha some curves: our property is not an exception and this factor has always been previously described in our offer;
d) the exceptional heat of this summer season may have caused some inconvenience: if the ceiling fan was not enough to cool the room, we welcome the advice to improve this situation.
Spacious apartment with fantastic views.
My husband and I spent a very comfortable week here. The apartment is clean, well equipped and spacious and also stays cool. Basic things like washing up liquid were provided. There is lots of outside space. The drive/walk up the hill from the coast road is steep but well worth it for the superb views, and also for the sense of peace and quiet. Enrico and his family are very welcoming and friendly, and are keen to make sure that you have everything you need. The pool is a good size for swimming, with plenty of sunbeds provided. We visited the beach at the bottom of the hill which is sandy and the sea is shallow.
Enrico recommended the restaurant at Agriturismo La Selva (just over the hill) where we had the best meal of the holiday at a very reasonable price. Barbara welcomed us and gave us an excellent meal of home-cooked, and some of it was also home-grown, food. The only downside is that it is a fixed menu so you don't have a choice about what you get but we didn't have a problem with that.
We would definitely recommend this property.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for eight beautiful days in Feb/ March while on a rock climbing trip. It was a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The view is spectacular and the only sound you hear is the breeze blowing through the fruit trees. All the comforts of home were inside the apartment. The owners are Italian and the mother lives in an adjacent apartment. She greeted us with a huge box of fresh oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and the most delicious lemons I've ever eaten! We felt like we had the whole mountainside to ourselves! We didn't want to leave and we would most certainly come back again!
The description of the place is accurate, but maybe understates how beautiful it really is here. The property was clean and expertly maintained. The owners were so nice and made every part of our stay effortless and pleasant.
Thank you Amber and Rob for your wonderful review,
is the first time that we host american climbers and we are very pleased that you enjoyed our residence.
Das Grundstück von Enrico, mit den Ferienwohnungen, sehr vielen Zitrus und Olivenbäumen, von denen man je nach Saison, reichlich Früchte bekommt, ist sehr schön und sauber. Die Aussicht auf das Meer ist durch die erhöhte Lage, gigantisch!!! Super ist auch der Brötchendienst von Enrico!!!
Wir haben die Woche bei Ihm sehr genossen und werden den Urlaub wiederholen!
Danke Markus and friends!
Posto incantevole e casa ben organizzata
Posto bellissimo e rilassante in mezzo ad ulivi ed agrumi con una bella piscina . Appartamento molto pulito e ben sistemato. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili. Abbiamo trascorso con la mia famiglia una vacanza stupenda. Melina Nastasi
Wir verbrachten eine wunderbare Woche in dieser schönen Wohnung mit grandiosem Meerblick. Wir fanden alles genauso vor wie im Internet beschrieben. Die Betreuung durch Enrico war hervorragend: täglich frische Brötchen, Aprikosen, Marmelade, eigenes Olivenöl....und außerdem noch außerordentlich sympathisch. Die Lage der Wohnung ist ideal für MTB und Baden. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt und wir kommen sicherlich wieder.
Vielen dank Elvira, Andreas un Marco!
The units (apartments and rooms) are located in the heart of an olive grove in La Selva place, along a gentle slope offering spectacular views of the sea, 150 m away as the crow flies, and, in particular, the port tourist. Housing, located approximately 2 km from the center of Finale Ligure in the direction of Varigotti, it comes from both Manie Road (upstream) and the Via Aurelia (seafront). The farm has a comfortable swimming pool equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas, enjoyable summer. An ideal place for relaxation and nature lovers and for those who want a handy reference for practicing the many outdoor activities offered by the Finale (rock climbing, mountain biking, cycling, hiking, horseback riding, scuba diving, sailing, paragliding , etc..). Availability of barbecue to cook on the grill and table and chairs for outdoor dining.
