The apartment was fantastic... look thru the kitchen and bathrooms before you go shopping as previous guests have left items..we did as well. I would have Lillian show you how to turn on the air conditioners while she is there..out of 4 of us we couldn't figure them out..luckily we only needed them one night. We could have called her but it was late and we decided to open all the windows. Also there isn't Wifi..but I had 4g on my phone the entire time, so not really a problem. The walk to the city center is easy and plenty to do in portovenere...didn't even know much about that specific village but spent a day exploring and loved it. The only negative about this village was no train station. Getting a taxi from Laspezia to Portovenere was easy and 35 euro, cheaper than the water ferry which is 18.50 euro per person, but timing was not good for us..going back to Laspezia was very difficult finding a taxi..water ferry ran too late and when we finally contacted a taxi it was 60 euro back...We never used the bus system..I'm sure it would be cheaper. We had a fantastic 4 day vacation in the region and would recommend this apartment due to location, views of the sea and amenities. Thanks Lynn...I hope my info about the region is helpful.
The view from here
The view from here is spectacular. A good restaurant 2 minutes away, with snack shops and other conveniences. 10 minute walk to ferries and old town. Bedrooms small but comfy. Wifi missing.
Thank you so much Michael for your very good review.
Best wishes for you and your little Lilli.
Beautiful Location and Home
The apartment is spacious and welcoming. Very clean. We wanted something near Cinque Terre and this fit the bill. The day we chose to go to the Cinque the ferries were not running so the alternative was to drive to La Spezia (30 minute drive) and take the train. We were a bit disappointed but it was a relatively easy alternative. If you wanted to walk to Porto Venere downtown it is probably a 20 minute walk. As we had older people in our group we would always drive. We were there slightly off season so we could find parking in Porto Venere but high season it would be a big problem, I think. Be careful how many electrical
items you have on at once as the circuit breaker for the apt tripped off twice in 3 days. She had showed us how to reset it if it happens so pay attention to her walk through when you arrive. Lilliana was very helpful and accommodating.
thank you so much for your 5 stars review.
I think Portovenere is always beautiful, certainly with sun it is an other thing but I guarantee you the storms of winter are a real wonder.
If you'll come back remember: a small bus goes back and forth from the beaches, the parking lot to the town center, however the walk along the sea is just as pleasant for people who can walk.
I'm glad your holiday went well despite the bad weather.
I hope to see you again in a next summer.
Best wishes for everything.
Perfect Location in Portovenere Anytime of Year
Lilliana treated us to one of the most special places we have stayed in many years and we are a seasoned, well-traveled family. The property is better than the pictures on the website can demonstrate. It is modern, clean, full of air, light and glass with views onto a beautiful body of water filled with new and old boats and other nautical traffic, presenting an ever present and interest spectacle. Even the local boys' crew team was out there until well past sunset. In the Fall the sun rises and sets in front of the penthouse apartment property which is serviced by two large and well-furnished decks or patios. The beds and bathrooms (3) are extremely comfortable and clean and despite being close to a road - as almost all Portovenere properties are, the house was quiet and private. The house sleeps four comfortably but can handle daily guests by the dozen with its spacious patios and large rooms and hallways. Lilliana is a fine hostess, prompt in getting us into the property after hours . She not only greeted us when we arrived later than planned but checked in on us at departure She patiently explained everything we needed to know for our stay and answered questions in both Italian and English. We travel the world and would welcome sharing with anyone that asks that this location and this home were one of the most pleasant and fairly priced that we have visited in many years. Joe
Hi Joe, thank you so much for your wonderful review. I'm very happy our home has been superior to your expectations. I hope to meet you again may be with both your children. Have a good time. Regards
If your headed to Portovenre there's only one place to stay and that's at Lilliana's Terrace on the Sea!!! We researched the area for months until this property showed up on Home Away. Its one of the Best locations in town and it's right on the water with 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a Huge 2,000 Square Foot covered Deck. It also has another large sun deck on top of the roof. It has Spectacular Views of the Baty of Poets and the owner Lilliana is very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
Dear Neil, thank you very much for your beautiful words. I'm glad your holiday has gone well. A warm greeting to " your girls". See you, maybe, in California. who knows !!!!
Big, clean and beautiful appartment with wonderful views.
For us four a perfect stay in wonderful Liguria.
Nice short walk to the center of beautiful Portovenere. Lillianas appartment was even better than on the website. We all hope to get back some day. Thank you Liguria and thank you Lilliana. / Anders, Tommy, Rickard & Jan-Olof
Portovenere is one of the "pearls" of the natural park of the 5 lands. The paths that connect them, overlooking the sea, are one of the most beautiful attractions in the area. The aromas of the aromatic plants and the colors of the flora of the place, an unforgettable experience.
On request, guided excursions can be organized.
