The apartment was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. It was perfect for our stay. The private gardens made for a very relaxing setting, even if just for morning coffee. We were delayed in our arrival and got in late but Carla was very patient with us and we really appreciated the breakfast items she left out for us. While the bus stop is close by, we walked the 1.2 km back and forth to the train station to get to Cinque Terre, and downtown La Spezia was just a little farther so the location was great for us.
We were only there for two nights but the apt. was lovely. Mario greeted us and showed us where to park and gave us instructions for the place. There is about a 15-20 minute walk “down hill” to the area where the many sailboats are docked. Many restaurants to choose from. Just remember .... you walk down to get there ... you walk up hills to get home. Not too bad.
