Your hosts Lara and Andrea are lovely and kind, and their beautiful appartamento is exactly as described and photographed. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in San Remo. The rooftop deck has such a spectacular view you will not want to leave!

The Best....bellisimo

  • 5 of 5

Been using VRBO for years including some long term stays in Italy. This is by far the most beautiful a;artmemt to date. Great views ! Great space...charming and so tastefully furnished. Couldn’t asked for a warmer welcome and attentiveness. If Sanremo is your destination or anywhere on the Italian or French Riviera, this should be your first choice.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in San Remo was a real pleasure. The apartment is well sized for two couples. The kitchen had everything we needed. We used the grill for cooking the delicious local fish. The apartment is located perfectly for enjoying the town of San Remo and for taking day trips to Italian or French hill towns. We had a great time!

Wonderful apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had great expectations of this apartment as the reviews were so gushing and we were not disappointed!

It really is a wonderful place with fantastic views of the sea and the harbour.

It is tastefully decorated and well-equipped and everything was exactly as described.

Andrea and Lara are lovely people and provided some very useful advice and suggestions for visits during our stay. We used the bikes provided during our stay - the cycle track is wonderful!

We cannot find any faults with the property and would highly recommend a stay here - you will not regret it!

Even better the 2nd time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much last February ('16) that we returned again this year. We're beginning to feel like the Edwardians who overwintered every year in Sanremo - now there's a thought...
