Pretty Cottage in Santa Margherita Ligure
The Ligurian sea is beautiful and this little cottage had everything we needed including a nice breakfast each day of yogurt, cereal, coffee, tea, fruit, toast, and pastries. Maria Cristina was a fabulous hostess and helped us find the train and bus stations, gave us local maps and restaurant recommendations. We would recommend this place again. Linda and Jeff
Thanks a lot Linda and Jeff! We really hope to see you again. Cristina and Nicola. 😊
A Beautiful And Tranquil Accomodation
We have stayed in many holiday accommodations but this is by far the best, everything is as stated in the property description.
I was a little concerned about finding the casetta especially as I had to drive through Santa Marghertia in the peak of the holiday season,but the directions that Christina gave me were easy to follow and we arrived at the casetta with no problems.
The owners Christina And Nicola met us on arrival they were very helpful, friendly and accommodating but discrete, it was advised that we could call upon them at any time for advise or help, in fact I mentioned that I liked croissant with cream and where was the best place to buy them, the next two mornings Nicola brought us some from two different bakeries so we could decide which were the best, how is that for customer service.
The property was everything you could wish for, clean comfortable and with all mod cons, even air conditioning.
The garden was spacious with a table and parasol for eating alfresco
and sunbeds and parasol for relaxing.
It is only a sort walk to the shops (5 mins) and 10 mins to the seafront.
If you are looking for a beautiful and relaxing holiday accommodation look no further this has got to be one of the best, and to cap it all Christina and Nicola are wonderful and friendly hosts, we will definitely be back.

Dear Kennet and Ronnie, thanks a lot for your wonderful review! We really hope to host you again in the future. You'll be always welcome.
Love, Cristina and Nicola. :)
We were welcomed, looked after and practically advised about absolutely anything we needed by the most caring couple who own this little, but perfectly formed, cabin in their garden. The cabin has parking and is in a large garden close to the main house (but not overlooked). It has everything and more that we expected for our stay and is beautifully decorated. Positioned just outside of the centre of the town of Santo Margherita Ligure but an easy 10 minute walk to the centre of the town for any reasonably mobile person (just a steep incline on the last few minutes coming back from town). Good restaurants 5 minutes away, excellent walking is accessed to anywhere on the Portafino peninsular. An idyllic retreat provided by a lovely couple.
Thanks a lot for your wonderful review! You've been perfect guests, so lovely and friendly! We hope to see you again in the future. Cristina and Nicola.
Lovely holiday accomodation in garden setting
In the 18 years we've been driving to Italy this cottage is one of the most beautiful holiday accommodations we have stay in.
The cottage cleanliness is exemplary, the owner Christina & her husband Nicola are 2 very friendly & personable people who can't do enough for you.
Christina's English is very good ( much better than my Italian ), she provided us with lots of information on where to go & see, Nicola provided us with vegetables from his garden for our meals in.
The cottage has everything needed, cooker & grill, microwave, fridge, dishwasher plus all the cooking utensils needed.
It also has air conditioning if needed, we're finding aircon more welcome as we get older ( I'm 65 & my wife 64), the same with sunbeds.
The cottage gardens are beautiful, private & quiet with sunbeds & parasol.
Santa Margherita sea front is a 10 minute walk with all its bars & cafes, there are quite few you walk past on the way from the cottage so plenty of choice.
There are 3 or 4 supermarkets & bakeries in the near vicinity of the cottage.
The cottage is perfect holiday accommodation, we would recommend staying there to anyone.
Thank you Christina & Nicola, you were lovely to talk to, we had a great time & your cottage + gardens really are as beautiful ( if not more so ) than the website photographs.
(Ps we arrived Calais 6pm Tuesday 30th June & found the port closed due to industrial action, we escaped France on Wednesday 1st July via Dunkirk & DFDS.
That's another tale but it all adds to the adventure of continental motoring holidays)

Dear Les and Beryl, we are grateful for your beautiful appreciation!
You were also guests affectionate and funny, it made us really pleasure to host you and share funny chats.
We are always happy to welcome you in the future if you wish.
A warm hug from all of our family! Cristina and Nicola.
So much hospitality
We had a wonderful stay here with our two teenage children. The description and photographs are representing exactly the situation, so everything was according to our expectation. The owner, Christina, takes any extra step needed to ensure satisfied guests while at the same time ensuring the utmost privacy. The house is perfectly equipped and the fact that linen/ towels are included is very convenient. The price/ quality relation is excellent. Truly very recommended.
Just one thing: parking in this region in August is virtually impossible so we chose to take the 10 minute walk to Sta Margherita as much as possible. It is a steep walk however, so one needs to be in a good enough physical condition.
A WONDERFUL FIND, A GREAT HOLIDAY!!
Upon arrival we were greeted by the charming and lovely Bozzo family who immediately welcomed us in true italian style with warmth and generosity. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Nico and Cristina
Whilst they were very discreet, but they were there to offer excellent local advice and help, should we require
The cottage is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable holiday.
In our case we spent 17 wonderful days there (24 July - 10th August 2013) and wanted for nothing the entire time.
It was immaculately clean and has the added bonus of being located in a private, gated domaine.
The cottage being totally detached, is totally surrounded by garden and is very, very quiet indeed
We slept and relaxed so well the entire time.
Cristina provided a brand new barbecue, for our use, which was great to just sit, chill & relax in the lovely cottage garden rich with fruit & olives trees. Giving us the added option to barbecue the fantastic local produce!
The beautiful views of the surrounding countryside are truly gorgeous, yet the cottage is located only 5 minutes walk from the main town of Santa Margherita Ligure. (SML)
The beaches are around a 10 - 15 minute walk from the cottage
There are also many restaurants and shops literally at the bottom of the road where the cottage is located.
Which was a pleasant surprise! On our evening of arrival as we were starving and found that the restaurant, only a few minutes walk away, called La Madia, provided a delicious and reasonably priced dinner .
In fact there is a path from behind the cottage leading straight up into the hills with amazing views over the Sea and local countryside and it is possible to walk right over to Portofino (this is a proper hike for serious walkers only) But like us, as the weather was really hot during our stay) you can walk for as little or as long as you wish and discover wonderful sights
The local surrounding towns and villages have so much unspoilt, true Italian beauty & charm like
Camogli, Chiavari, Sestri Levante, Paraggi and Portofino etc …..
But SML is also totally charming, with it's interesting boutiques, many, many delicious, reasonably priced restaurants, popular bars and is rich with charismatic Italian charm and atmosphere
Thank you Cristina, Nico, Marco, Julia & Cara for everything. We had just the most wonderful holiday and will definitely return
We highly recommend this truly lovely place in a heartbe
