wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Rapallo and had a wonderful time there. Michela and Claudio, thank you for your hospitality and helpfulness! The apartment is amazing with the sea just below the window. The Castello with the night lights on is like on a postcard indeed. The beach is a few meters away. The apartment lies practically in Rapallo's heart, everything you need is in walking distance. (Our car parked nicely in the same spot for 2 weeks:) You can make trips to Genoa or the famous Cinque Terre, if you're not by car, then you can take the train - cheap and convenient, the station is about 8 minutes from the apartment. One of the windows has a broad window sill: the perfect place for reading - just looked up and enjoyed the view from time to time. All in all, we were quite depressed on the morning of our departure...

Wonderful apartment in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

I don't think you could find a better place or in a better location than this apartment. Sitting on the balcony with coffee in the morning and happy hour at night with the water 50 feet away and the castle 150 feet away is like being in a fairy tale. The apartment itself is very well appointed and comfortable. Claudio and Michela were great hosts, meeting us on our arrival and introducing us to the apartment and it's features. You couldn't ask for better hosts! I had an issue with the internet (my fault) and Claudio was there in 5 minutes to check it out. We truly enjoyed our stay in Rapallo, felt safe and comfortable walking anywhere, and felt that it was less hectic than Santa Margherita or Portofino. We took day trips to Cinque Terre and Portofino but could just as easily have spent our entire time in Rapallo. We are already planning a return trip for a longer stay.

Above and Beyond Expectations in Rapallo

  • 5 of 5

Claudio and Michela were amazing hosts for our week in the Riviera! They started by meeting us at the rental car office and walking us through Rapallo, showing us where the grocery store and bus station and train station were. They pointed out their favorite restaurants. They walked us to the apartment, which was perfect for our stay, explaining how everything worked. They said to call for anything we needed. Later in the week I had my wallet pick-pocketed and they came to the apartment and walked me to the police lost and found and to the train station to check if it had been turned in, handling all communication. On our last day, they walked us to the train station. These are warm, sweet, charming people who take great care of you. Thank you, Claudio and Michela!

About the apartment - Location Location Location! Our darling little balcony is right on the sea with views of the castle and adorable Rapallo and marina. We had many glasses of wine on the balcony just enjoying being there. Directly under the balcony is the restaurant, Sole. The sea drowned out any noise from that popular place. Town with its many restaurants and shops is just steps away. The apartment is comfortable, the wifi worked well, and the bed was great! Rapallo was a great place to base to see the Riviera! We took the train and bus to see Santa Margherita and Portofino and Camogli and Cinque Terre. When you come, let Claudio and Michela take care of you!

We have just spent two wonderful weeks in Michela and Claudio's apartment. Everything that has been said by previous reviewers is absolutely true. The location could not be better - right on the water and yet in a town-centre location! The facilities make this a home-from-home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rapallo, which is a terrific town and is a good base from which to explore this region - the train service is excellent.

Perfect Location, Great View, and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location, and perfect for our family of 4 with our small Jack Russell. Additionally the hosts were exceptional, and welcomed us with Easter chocolates for our kids! Felt like family!

The apartment is well decorated, spacious, safe, and ideal for relaxing and taking in the view of the bay.

We would highly recommend this apartment and the hosts.

Thank you!

Perfect place to stay in Rapallo feeling like home

  • 5 of 5

it was the last minute choice for us so we were a bit worried, especially seeing no reviews so far. And it was a perfect choice! Very nice appartment, right in the center, max of 10 minute walk to anything - train station, ferry terminal, supermarket, right above the promenade and a tiny free beach with the beatiufl castle view.The pictures posted here represent the appartment very fairly. The apartment is very stylish, newly refurbished and overall you can see that owners have put lots of love in it. It has also fully equipped kitchen, and we were greated with a big plate of fruits, some water and beer in the fridge and coffe tablets for coffee machine. There is also very good wi-fi connection (not to download "heavy" stuff though, but I didn't need it). Air-condition is good, though we didn't even need it for most part of the very hot week we had, somehow the flat withstood the heat ok.

A bit of a downside is that sleeping rooms are facing a busy road. It is quite in the night, but you might be awaken early in the morning by crazy moto sounds typical for Italy. However it is only if you are light sleeper, otherwise it's ok, and anyway, all the best hotels in Rapallo are facing the same road!

The owners who are Rapallo locals are very friendly and we spent one evening with them chatting over the aperitives with great pleasure.

??? ??????? ?????? - ?????? ??????? ??-??????!

We had a perfect week in Michela's apartment!

Note for Rapallo: if you are a beach-lover prefering Turkey, Egypt or Greece beach holidays, don't come here! Come here for the scenery, for the amazing little seaside towns (like famous Cinque Terre that are an hour away from Rapallo), and of course swimming in the sea is also at your service! Just don't expect long sandy beaches and all-inclusive buffets, Rapallo has to offer so much more historically, culturally and for the nature-lovers as well!
