3rd VRBO on our Italian adventure (Napoli and Positano being the other 2 locations) and at first we weren’t sure if it was for us. The cab took us incorrectly into Portovenere and we saw many tourist places to go. However, our apartment was in Fezzano, back toward town. It is located on the harbor in a quiet section.
Instantly, we realized we were where we needed to be - AWAY from tourists and near real Italians.
In two days we had the best meals of our lives, met amazing and friendly people, and G & I promised we would be back!
Clemente is the perfect host and his apartment is roomy for two with the European feel. He communicated extensively until he was sure we were settled. We never felt lost or out of sorts.
Ristorante MarineRei & L’Osteria were two great restaurants with the BAR a great place to drink cheap and hang with the locals
If you want tourist places, you can take the bus up the street. If you want to experience Italy at it’s finest..:stay here. You will not be disappointed
If you want an exquisite view, comfortable bedrooms and living quarters, and a wonderful host then you have found it here!!! Margherita is a joy to work with. She met us off the train that is just steps from the stairs to the apartment. As mentioned in previous reviews, if you have an issue with steps this is NOT the property for you. The four in our family all travelled in backpacks so while the stairs were challenging they were not an issue. I certainly wouldn't want to lug a 50 lb suitcase up the steps.
The unit was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our hike over to the next town (Vernazza) and then we took the train back. We would definitely stay here again!!!
