Stunning location but not always the cheapest. The pizzeria on site is excellent value and does takeaway. Recommend booking on a Friday and Saturday. Just along the road is a restaurant Mani e Mani which is absolutely fantastic. Porlezza is a charming little village with some very nice walks and plenty of choice for ice cream for the kids.
Apartment itself was very basic for the price and the air con is very poor indeed. The area around the pool can get very crowded. No evidence of availability of use of a safe. Pre-book boat hire, don't just turn up hoping to hire one on a nice sunny day.
A tip in this region mini-storms spring up out of nowhere, always carry a light rain mac.More
