Description from the manager
(Minimum of one week rental required) Casa dei Poeta 2 is a lovely apartment on the fourth floor (no elevator) of a modern building not far from the historic center of the medieval village of Portovenere. Just at the end of the road (200 meters) are the main grocery store, newsstand, pharmacy, and the sea front where there are a wide variety of shops and restaurants. The owners will pick guests up at the train station in La Spezia upon request. The apartment has been recently redecorated in a lively palate of colors and is very tastefully furnished with a pleasing mixture of antique and modern pieces. The furnished terrace provides a spectacular view over the Gulf of Poets, and ample opportunity to relax and enjoy a glass of local wine. The apartment offers a perfect home base for a small family seeking to explore the delights of Liguria and beyond. For larger parties or families, Casa dei Poeta 2 can be rented along with Casa dei Poeta 1, located in the building next door. Please inquire for more information.
Linens and final cleaning are included in the price. Parking is available for 125 euro/week. Parking is on first come first served basis. Upon entering entering the apartment, you are immediately struck by the bright, cheeriness of the living/dining area and the elegance of the marble floors. Awash in coral pink tones, the living area offers two comfortable couches, a dining table for four, and numerous charming antique furnishings. French doors lead out to on to the panoramic terrace where dining al fresco is almost required, as the view of the "Gulf of Poets" is spectacular. The kitchen was remodeled in 2004 and is fully equipped with a stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and washing machine. There is also a breakfast table in the kitchen. The apartment offers two bedrooms; a double bedroom with a queen bed, and another double bedroom with two twin beds (convertible upon request). The master bedroom has direct access out onto the terrace. The bathroom has a small bathtub and a hand held shower. The entire apartment has recently been redecorated and is very tastefully furnished with a mixture of antique pieces and more modern comfortable pieces.
In August you'll find many small festivals in Italy. Look for brightly-colored posters for a festa or sagra on weekends in August, where you can usually sample inexpensive regional food. Many Italians take vacations in August, often to the seaside, so you're more likely to find small festivals there. You may run across a medieval festival that includes people dressed in medieval costumes. There are also many outdoor music performances in August. The Miracle of the White Madonna is celebrated with a torchlight procession in the Ligurian seaside village of Portovenere on August 17. The entire village is lit up and candles are placed in the water along the waterfront. It makes for quite a magical sight! The Church of San Lorenzo was built in the 12th century and has a romanesque facade. Damage from cannon fire, the worst in 1494, caused the church and belltower to be rebuilt several times. The 15th century marble alterpiece holds a small painting of the White Madonna. According to legend, the image was brought here in 1204 from the sea and was miraculously transformed into its present form on August 17, 1399.
