Beautiful location, and very kind host. Thanks for the champagne to celebrate our anniversary
Great location. We would definitely go back
Exceptional hosts Ambretta and Bruno made our stay in Levanto truly memorable and hassle free
The two bedroom apartment in Levanto was wonderfully furnished, spotlessly clean, spacious and well maintained with all the essentials we needed. Ambretta & Bruno met us at the station on the rainy afternoon we arrived and helped us with our luggage, responded to our requests promptly and nothing was ever too much trouble. The location is very convenient and within short walks to a surf beach on the Med, excellent little cafes and shops on our doorstep and only five minutes to the Levanto train station which was one stop (4 minutes) way from Monterosso in Cinque Terra.
We would highly recommend staying here as an option and less crowded gateway to Cinque Terre. We stayed here for five nights and if not for other commitments would have loved to stay longer.
a great location Very Cosy but needs a little TLC
Ambretta was very nice and tried to be very helpful. The bathroom needs to be updated and needed more bath towels for a two bdr cottage Wonderful locations and many good restaurants very near the apt. Also no WiFi !,
Arrived & promptly looked for other housing
When we arrived, the apartment had mosquitos and spiders on the wall in one of the bedroom along with numerous spider & cob webs. We didn’t want to stay here. We alerted the owners. We accidentally left a couple of items there & they were very kind to meet us so we could retrieve our belongings. They apologized for the mosquitoes & said it’s never been a problem. Then promptly pointed out several mosquito deterrents available in the apartment which was strange if it had never been a problem. I also pointed one out as it buzzed by to which the owner replied “there’s just 1”. I thought “ I want none!”. We didn’t stay at all & asked for at least a partial refund & they said NO REFUND. So In essence we paid for 4 nights we didn’t even sleep there & got no money back. If u are looking for a very clean apartment & bug free, don’t choose this one.
Mr. Mike was very displeased for not having received a refund for having left my house and he thought to penalize me with this review. I hope they have had a good stay in the other two houses where they spent the four days of their holiday in Monterosso. First of all I wish to clarify that we are renting four holiday's house for many years and every apartment is personally controlled by me before being delivered and our priority has always been the seriousness and correctness and we have always received support from our guests. I did not think there were any valid reason to leave the house, even with Mike's wife we could see only "one" midge in the house! I made myself available also with a dence corrispondence (23 emails in four days!). On the second day they wanted to come back in my house, after they changed their mind, at last on the third day, the lady came to recover their belongings left in the house.I also want to clarify that we leave deterrentes for insects, not becouse our house is invaded by insects but together detergentes, soaps......to give a better service to our customers. Certainly in the garden they could find insects, butterflies, crickets, birds, lizards......I think that it was preferable that Mr. Mike chose an house without garden
loved this place!
We loved staying here! It is a perfect location in the historic area. Ambretta is absolutely adorable and worked with us when we needed a few fans due to the humidity from the rain. It was truly an authentic experience and worked well for us. The bathroom was a little small, and difficult to remove humidity after showering, but other than that, we absolutely loved it!! Her garden is absolutely beautiful with the hydrangeas and lemon tree. In our opinion, Monterosso is the best place to stay of the 5 towns. The pizza restaurant a few steps away is amazing!!
Great apartment in a perfect location
We spent a week in Bruno and Ambretta's perfectly located house in old town Montorosso with friends from South Africa. The whole experience from the time of booking to departure was seamless - Ambretta's responses to emails were prompt and the whole experience was absolutely first class. The house was clean, tidy, well equipped and we received a hearty welcome from Ambretta upon arrival. We can honestly highly recommend this property and will certainly stay here again when visiting Montorosso.
