Why Michela Devoto chose Rapallo
Rapallo is a municipality in the province of Genoa, about 30 kilometers from the capital. It is located in the western part of the Gulf of Tigullio, and the modern part of the city extends as an arc up to the slopes of the surrounding hills which are the typical Mediterranean vegetation. This feature ensures conformation of the Ligurian territory varied tourist offer based on both the attractions of the coast and inland. The marina is divided into a northern area ( Old Port) and a southern zone that includes the new , Porto Carlo Riva International , which has been awarded the Blue Flag [ blue flag ] in 2007 for the excellent service . In addition to its attractive old town, the places to see in Rapallo include the marvelous castle of the 16th century, located just in front of the apartment .

Fabulous view & beautiful apartment with wonderful hosts!
The view was fantastic. The apartment was beautiful and well equipped. Centrally located. Claudio and Michela were very responsive and great hosts.
We had a great pleasure having guests like you!
Wunderschöne, sehr gepflegte Unterkunft mit sehr guter Ausstattung
Wir waren von dieser gemütlichen Ferienwohnung begeistert. Direkt am Wasser mit Balkon und Meerblick. Absolut zentral und verkehrsgünstig gelegen. Gute Parkmöglichkeiten in unmittelbarer Nähe. Altstadt mit Fußgängerzone und vielen kleinen Geschäften, Bahnhof und Schiffsanleger in fußläufiger Entfernung. Sehr freundliche zuvorkommende Vermieter. Wir haben uns in dieser Unterkunft sehr wohl gefühlt und können sie uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

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
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
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.
