Loved Riomaggiore. Had a good buzz and lots of places to eat. We loved the beach for snorkelling off

  • 5 of 5

Great property in terms of location with amazing terrace which was perfect for eating on or just enjoying the view or playing cards n board games (of which there are loads in the apartment) with the kids in the evening. Up a good few stairs so be aware - who needs Zumba after that!, but sure worth the climb and have had apartments with more steps before. In the town, to get down to the beach and centre you can take multiple stairs down quaint alleyways or there's a gentler stroll with few steps which worked well, particularly when coming back. Easy access to beach, Main Street with shops, cafes n supermarkets on it and also to the train station. Apartment is pretty basic but has all that is required and is a good size and well maintained. Feels like someone's second home and we liked it for that reason - felt authentic! No aircon, but fans in rooms plus shutters closed n windows open at night meant sleeping was fine as there's a steady coastal breeze. 15 and 13 year old 'children' with us loved the beach for snorkelling as lots of fish! Not a sandy one for sure so getting in and out when a little rougher had its moments but a lovely temperature and back drop when looking back at the beach. If walk through the majority who seen to park at the entrance to the beach, there's a good amount of space and the sea doesn't feel crowded, plus some large, flat rocks to sit/lie on. Owner arranged car to be garaged for us at a decent price which was great. Took it out once to go to Lucca which was lovely, but if coming again would probably come by train in all honesty. We loved the different villages/towns of the Cinque Terre but once explored, the kids always wanted to come back to swim at Riomaggiore as the sandy beaches just didn't do it for them re the fish and snorkelling! Totally agree with them! Also about a ten minute walk from beach to apartment so easy. People who met us when arrived were great and all aspects of the apartment and organisation were straightforward. Additions that would improve it - a BBQ for the terrace would make self catering much easier as sitting up there whilst cooking would be great. Aircon would be great but coped without it in August with no problem. Overall, great apartment - clean and well maintained - location and large terrace with views are what you're paying for. Would totally recommend, but ultimately, it suited us great but depends what you want from a holiday!
