Hi, I am looking to rent an apartment in a lovely village in Northern Italy for two weeks during June. I want to be able to cook, take long walks, photograph and occasionally travel to other towns. I would like to be within reach of the coast (preferably Genoa or Cinque Terre) and mountains if at all possible. Looking at the map, I thought perhaps the area within a 50k radius of Tortona would be good.
My biggest drawback is needing public transport - I will not be driving, so need to be close to the train and/or bus with fairly regular services available.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
