“Comfortable, but tight on space”

The apartment is quite nice, in a good location with great views on the village and sea. The staff/management couldn't have more helpful and easy to deal with. A very professionally run operation. Also positive is the well functioning air conditioning in each bedroom. The availability of a parking garage was also worthwhile.

I do have to say that the description of the apartment/extra room could have been more detailed. The second room actually adjoins the apartment bedroom (and it does have it own separate entrance door), so that you have to pass thru the bedroom to get to the kitchen, or else pass by the common balcony, as long as the patio door in the kitchen is left unlocked. The second room is also very tight for space, with no chair or even place to put your bags, and most large luggage simply won't fit into the armoir/closet in the room. So maneuvering around can get tricky when there is stuff on the floor around the bed. The main bedroom doesn't have a closet, but there are 2 chairs.

The bathrooms are modern and clean, but as someone else noted there is no caddy for soap or shampoo in the main apartment's shower. The shower in the second bedroom strangely does have a small shelf installed, which is helpful. The shower doors do not seal that well, so beware of potentially flooding the floor when you use the shower.

Other items that would have elevated my overall rating are having some basic dry goods stocked in the kitchen, such as sugar, coffee, tea, salt, paper towels, etc, which would simply make the whole set up a bit more inviting and thoughtful for each guest.

Overall, a good and comfortable place to stay, but not exceptional. I think that it works better as 2 separate units rather than one, but this has to be judged relative to alternative rentals in the area.

“Truly heaven on earth!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in March 2012

My daughter and I spent 3 blissful nights here, and cannot imagine a more beautiful or peaceful spot. It was great to have the kitchen for breakfast on the huge patio balcony with a panoramic view of the beautiful Ligurian sea. We arrived to a spotlessly clean apartment and had helpful friendly service from the agents.
Yes, there's a lot of stairs. Yes some of the steps are a bit rustic. People in the past have complained about this, but as these 5 villages are near ancient I welcome the rustic nature of the area. All in all this place is perfect in ever way. I have recommended this place time and time again!
