Just a perfect place to explore the Italian Riviera. Nestled in the mountains above Rapallo with gorgeous views of the mountains and the sea in the background, just 15 minutes to excellent beaches, quaint Italian costal villages. The flat is perfect for an extended family with 3 large bedrooms, large living room, great covered terrace for dining outside. The owners provide a wonderful printed tour guide with all beaches, grocery stores, recommended restaurants, activities in the area. It was great to get first hand info and made our trip much easier and more enjoyable. They provided us with a referral to one of the best seafood restaurants in the whole area where we celebrated my wife's birthday. On the morning of her birthday, we found an absolutely stunning bouquet of flowers fresh from garden and a wonderful happy birthday card on our terrace dining table! Also, Papa (who is a chef) gave us some homemade pesto. It was beyond superb. Its such a wonderful thing to find such truly friendly and helpful owners. It just makes the vacation so memorable. Don't hesitate, just book this wonderful home. Be sure to us a good Navigator as the street signs can be a little tricky, but the views and the friendliness are the great rewards.

Not only is Rapallo a beautiful location in its own right, it is is ideally situated to explore all the must sees of this area such as Portofino, Genoa and the Cinque Terre (well serviced by trains from Rapallo). There are many beautiful beaches to be found in other locations such as Camogli, Lavagna and Sestri Levante (also serviced by train from Rapallo) and if its shopping or restaurants that you're after then Rapallo will not be found wanting. The accommodation is first class, set high above the town, beautifully furnished with the best of appliances and with a view of the Med from the terrace that made evening al fresco dining a delight. The owners family live nearby and her sister, father and mother, in a very unobtrusive way, were extremely welcoming and did everything to ensure that our stay was a most memorable experience. On our arrival, the owners father even accompanied us to the local supermarket and helped us find our bearings. We really appreciated their warmth and wonderful hospitality. We have no problem recommending this property and would definitely stay here again.
Dear William and family,
many thanks for your kind words, we are humbled by your appreciation and truly glad to hear you had a great time at home. It has been a real pleasure hosting you and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Best regards from all of us!
