Definitely a 5 star apartment !!
You will love the location of Glenda's apartment in La Spezia. This is a beautifully finished out apartment with state of the art appliances, terrific street views and a magnificent super host. This destination will make your stay near Cinque de Terre and Porto Venere a great place to begin your day trips. After our stay there we traveled for several weeks from North to South along the coast of Italy and this apartment was our favorite of all our accommodations. Glenda knows the area extremely well and gave us great advice on things we may have missed which made our trip very memorable.
We will look forward to returning.

Thank you very much Judy for your nice review. I am so glad to read that you enjoyed your stay at my apartment. I hope to see you again soon. Glenda
Best place to stay in La Spezia
We have never stayed at a VRBO or HomeAway property that was as well kept, appointed, stocked and supplied as Holiday House. Kudos goes to the manager, Glenda, who is an experienced traveler herself and knows exactly how to make a guest feel at home. The abundance of snacks, cereals, groceries, beers and wine found upon our arrival really showed just how much she cares. Thanks Glenda. You are the best!
Wow this property and Glenda and Mom are amazing! Don't look anywhere else this please is perfect. This family goes out of there way to assist in everything. The apartment is clean, spacious and super clean. It's close to many restaurant and shops. A 10 minutes walk to train and a 3-4 minute walk to ferry. Don't think about staying any where else this place is perfect. ENJOY!
Glenda is an incredible kind and loving person, she made us feel very welcomed. Her apartment has all amenities, is clean, and spacious. The little touches like food, wine, and recommendations were right on point. Couldn’t have wished for a better stay!
Wonderful Stay at the Holiday House Apartment
We had an amazing stay at the apartment in July. The apartment was incredibly well stocked and had everything we needed. Glenda was a fantastic host providing restaurant recommendations and other information. The apartment is beautiful and comfortable. It's location is perfect within walking distance to the train, the marina, and also lots of restaurants and shops. We highly recommend the Holiday House Apartment. Thanks to Glenda for everything!
Excellent base for Cinque Terre
We had an excellent experience from the moment we booked until the moment we left the property. The hosts were very attentive and helpful. La Spezia is a great place to use for a base to visit Cinque Terre. The apartment was very spacious and clean - just as pictured. We would definitely stay here again if/when we return to the area.
The square is a familiar and pleasant meeting place of people stopping to chat politely and to enter into business. The reason should be sought in the fact that it developed in the immediate vicinity of the Porta Romana, the transit of the capital's businesses with the center and the north of Italy, especially of salt, whose remains are still in the old "Casa del Sale" . In addition, the presence of two wells from which the people drawing water, justifies the 'importance of the square took on the daily life of the city as a source vital and human. St. Augustine is, in seventeenth-century walled city, one of the districts in which was divided administratively La Spezia, as the neighborhood of the prion and the Citadel. It revolved around the homonymous district, which corresponds to the current Piazza Sant'Agostino; included the convent of the Poor Clares, the height of today's Via XX Settembre, and came to the walls towards the sea, where is the current Via Felice Cavallotti. He went so far, from the east, until the Porta Romana, in correspondence with the Piazzetta the Bastion and the way home from the west Prione. Around the district they opened many shops; the same convent of St. Augustine, built in 1376, he had eight, which faced toward the square. The district, adjacent to the Porta Romana, is the Oratory of St. John, already in existence in 1543 as the seat of a brotherhood "orationis et mortis", which took care of the burial of the dead. After being canceled in 1797, to be turned in before school and then to the police station, was returned to the religious orders in 1932. Following the Second World War bombing, the church of Sant'Agostino was completely destroyed, while one was spared of Saints John and Augustine. The building is a good example of Baroque architecture, which today is accessed via a few steps on the upstream side. Inside you can admire a painting of the Virgin that frees the souls in purgatory to bring them to heaven, which was meant to adorn the main altar of the oratory. It was expanded in the second half of the eighteenth century and adorned with a dome, decorated inside with stucco and decorated in the style of the Genoese baroque style. A short distance meet some of the oldest buildings in the city: Oldoini Palace and at number 54 Palazzo de 'Nobili, whose presence is attested from 1609 as property of Oldoini family. The buildings are in the Baroque style, with facades decorated in a similar way: conchiglioni friezes, the heads of lions and floral motifs on the openings and timpani. The buildings, recently restored, are not available to the public because of private property, and therefore admired only from the outside. In front of the buildings it is placed the bust of the beautiful Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione; the work of Vaccarone and Formicola, dates back to 2000. In Via Sant'Agostino, on the right, looking at the buildings, you can see architectures still antecedents, like a round arch with mullioned window above, in addition to the walls with surfacing squared drafts at the corners of some buildings, witnessing the ancient aspect of city. Interesting is the panel over with coats of arms, the second half of the fifteenth century, performed by Antelami workers, in Via Milazzo n. 34, parallel to Via Sant'Agostino. The most frequent iconography that appears throughout the Ligurian arc, is the 'symbol of the holy Franciscan Bernardino, which is the trigram IHS writing in flaming round. E 'clearly visible, in Apuan marble, in a historically building belonged to Oldoini, in which stand two symmetrical coats of arms divided by the cruciate trigram, surmounted by lilied crown with five points, due precisely to the second half of the fifteenth century.
