Great place to explore Cinque Terre

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Federica's apartments for three days to explore Cinque Terre and that was the right choice. Location is great, you have shops, pharmacy, market nearby and train station is only 5 minutes walk, so trip to say Manarola was 30 minutes "door-to-door".

We arrived by car and had no issues with parking (we used paid one at the entrance, but there is also a free one nearby).

Apartments are very clean, have all amenities needed, so we (family with small child) felt really comfortable. Federica provided a lot of useful information and was always ready to help to make our stay unforgettable. Thank you for your hospitality, Federica, we would definitely recommend our friends and others staying in your place!

Clean, charming, with special touches.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is simply decorated, with a relaxing feel. The hosts brought fresh flowers, and showed us the ins and outs of the neighborhood; free parking spot and bank. Good location, nice people! Federica recruited her parents to welcome and advise us, as she was working at the time we arrived. Highly recommended.

Zeer mooi en uiterst verzorgd appartement

  • 4 of 5

Prima gelegen in La Spezia - op 5' wandelen van het station, waar je de trein kan nemen naar 5 Terre. Dicht bij restaurants en supermarkt - gratis parking op kleine 10' wandelen.

Uiterst verzorgd, alles wat nodig was aanwezig, zeer vriendelijke ontvangst.

Enig minpuntje: op de 4de verdieping zonder lift.
