Rapallo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 6, Min Beds: 5, Double Beds: 3, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 2, Reference: 11418

Located in Rapallo on the coast of the Italian Riviera, this rental apartment on the waterfront is available either by itself or with a wonderful vintage yacht with skipper and chef for touring the coast of Liguria, including Portofino and the Cinque Terre. For those looking for a seaside and in-town experience, this apartment in a villa in Liguria, Italy, is the perfect choice.

(50 m2 of terraces and balconies) The charming apartment was built in the 1920's and has since been lovingly restored, inside and the terrace, by the owners while still maintaining its original layout and character. The apartment offers spectacular views of the Tigullio bay and the Portofino promontory from the terrace and balconies. There is a large terrace off the dining room, a balcony off the kitchen, and a balcony off the living room. A small park is located nearby with playground equipment for children. Parking is possible on the street in front of the property, if spaces are available. The exterior of the building, maintained by the condo association, is in need of repair/restoration. The owners have no control over when that will take place.

(180 m2)

Second Floor: This apartment is furnished and decorated in accordance to maintaining the original antique feel of the property from the 1920's.

There is an entrance hall and spacious living/dining room. The living room has a sofa, LCD TV and four arm chairs. The dining room has a dining table seating up to twelve people. There is a large kitchen equipped with stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and two washing machines. There is a south-facing master bedroom (25 m2) with a queen-size bed, air conditioning and a sea view. The second bedroom is a large twin-bedded room (16 m2; can be made up as a double bed upon request). There is also a small bedroom (8 m2) with a trundle bed for 2 people (top bed is 195 cm x 85 cm, lower bed is 185 cm x 80 cm). In addition there is a dressing room with two regular sized single "Murphy" beds (180 x 80 cm) which fold down from the cupboards.

Overall:

Outstanding view and very spacious with a great 2nd story patio.

The super friendly and helpful owners met us at check in.

Enjoyed Most:

Good location near main part of town and the train station.

Enjoyed Least:

The property is on a busy street with some road noise most of the time.

Plenty of nice restaurants and wine cafes within walking distance. There's a coffee shop right across the street and a train station less than a 10-minute walk.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Rapallo is a 5-minute walk to the town center and waterfront!

We really ejnoyed the restaurant Santa Lucia.

  • 3 of 5

Overall:

Overall we really enjoyed our last week in Rapallo (our 4th week in Italy.) It was a lot noisier than our location in Chiavari. Scooters, cars and trucks just outside. The owners were wonderful. They live in Milan, but greeted us the day we arrived and walked us into town showing us places to eat and buy food. They provided daily maid service and gave us their phone numbers in the event we had any issues or questions. A bottle of Prosecco in the fridge was a nice touch as were the coffee, tea and snacks.

Enjoyed Most:

The location is the selling point. The walk into town was only a few minutes and we were within driving distance of a lot of beautiful sea towns. Fantastic eating and shopping for food to prepare in the apartment. The kitchen was basic, but very usable.

Enjoyed Least:

The owners have made some improvements over time (the apartment belonged to a deceased mother), but now the exterior needs work (the owners mentioned that the condo association plans to address it soon).

Surrounding Area:

The surrounding area is beautiful and very walkable.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The center of Rapallo is about a ten-minute walk, longer when one stops for an espresso.

Directions:

Used my handheld Garmin GPS into which I had put the address. Streets are tricky (like most of Italy) due to poor signage.

Check In Out:

No. The owners made the process very easy and made sure that we were able to park. Parking is at a hotel which was about a 15-minute walk.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We thoroghly enjoyed our experience in Rapallo. The owners were so helpful and friendly. The location was perfect. Walking distance to the markets, grocery stores, ferry, and train station. Best of all was the view and the terrace where we spent most evenings outside eating and visiting.

Enjoyed Most:

The terrace was perfect. All of our socializing was done on the terrace. The location would come in as a second favorite. The house was so well equipped that we didn't need anything that was suggested on the packing checklist.

Surrounding Area:

The town of Rappalo is so charming. It lacks the volume of tourists in nearby areas. We could walk to the train and ferry locations and depart to enjoy everything around yet still feel like we were living like locals.

Nearby Events or Locales:

We were right in Rapallo and walking distance to the beach, stores, grocery, ferry and train station.

Tips or Restaurants:

Enjoy every minute. The moment you leave you will be planning your return.

Directions:

We took a taxi from the train station to the villa so we didn't have to walk with our luggage. The train station in Rapallo is walking distance to the villa.

Check In Out:

Check in was very easy. The owners had already arrived before us. They showed us how to work everything and left a list or restaurants in the area, maps, and pointed us to the things we needed locally. They were so helpful, and Enrico was kind enough to help us get our luggage up and down all the stairs.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

This was our 3rd stay at the property in Rapallo in the past 7 years. We gave our 4 children a choice of anywhere in the world to visit, and they unanimously picked Rapallo to go back to for a family vacation. We had another fantastic trip, where we enjoyed the ability to cook, swim in the sea, sail, shop and enjoy a relaxed time. The proximity to the Cinque Terre, Genoa, Milan, Florence and Viareggio allowed everyone to do what they most wanted - whether it was shop or hang in the water. Fantastic!

Enjoyed Most:

The balcony and it's view over the bay and marina are unique and utterly wonderful. We loved watching the boats go out early in the day and return at the end of the day. We also loved looking at the house when we were going out on the sea for the day, and coming in from sailing at the end of the day!

Enjoyed Least:

The property is beautiful, but it is very hot in the middle of the summer. The addition of air conditioning in the Master Bedroom, which cools all three bedrooms in that wing of the apartment really improved the property and allowed everyone to sleep more comfortably.

Surrounding Area:

Rapallo doesn't have the many overseas tourists that other parts of Italy have in the summer, so the atmosphere in the town is very natural and festive in the summer for the people of the area. The fireworks show on July 3rd was absolutely spectacular! ... more impressive than on the national mall in DC, if you can imagine.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The first time we stayed in Rapallo, we walked to Portofino a few times. It's a very athletic walk. The second time, we stayed in Rapallo... we walked to San Margherita Ligure which is plenty of walking for most of us. This year we spent a day at St Michele de Pagana, which is an incredibly lovely spot, which we accessed by walking around a little walkway on the sea.

Tips or Restaurants:

Because their are so many shops in town that sell fresh produce, including pastas and sauces.... it's very easy to cook good food in the apartment. Exploring the various shops and choosing local things to try has been a lot of fun for our family. There are plenty of casual restaurants around, be we would recommend getting off the boardwalks and trying the little restaurants that cater less to holiday travelers.... it's well worth it.

Directions:

We've had a car each time we've stayed in Rapallo, but we've concluded that it's really not worth it... especially if you are 6 or 7 peo

  • 3 of 5

Overall:

Quite good.

Enjoyed Most:

Plenty of space and great location with everything within walking distance.

Enjoyed Least:

The noise. Also, although it had the old world charm parts of the villa, it needs a makeover, as it's getting rather tired. It needs proper sun lounges for the deck. There were unpleasant drain smells from the bathroom near the kitchen.

Surrounding Area:

Restaurants coffee shops.

Nearby Events or Locales:

San Margherita was quite nearby.

Tips or Restaurants:

Mario's
