the water is cold To be honest for the same price/night
the cherry on top are the enormous french doors leading to the balcony with that incredible view to the small cove
You will find nothing like it anywhere
We expected that it would be public but not that crowded
I think one should be supplied
The house is well equipped and clean with generous rooms
but before 9 am and after 6 pm it was quiet
Therefore because there are almost no public beaches in the peninsula
There were 4 of us
She is a very kind generous and attentive Very wonderful
Serra was prompt and helpful online and in person
She had laminated information sheets with key information about the house and surrounding area
Giancarla was a great host and very welcoming
Giancarla was there to meet us and was quickly available for our questions via text during the week
A little piece of paradise
Also shorter walking distance to Paraggi where the restaurants are Very Very Good
a bit of a walk
We had a private view on to one of the loveliest coves on the Ligurian coast Within easy walking distance of Portofino and Santa Margheurita de Ligure where there are lots of bars and restaurants...
It is very easy to walk to Portofino (15 min ) or S Margherita Ligure (a little longer )
