We stayed in "Ginestra" apartment. it was very authentic and spacious. The property had a lovely feel and was surrounded with olive and fruit trees . We often spent evenings on the terrace overlooking the coast.
The owners were a very kind older couple. The wife did not speak English , but her husband did and made great effort to help us . He was very kind and we will always remember him for his love of eating fish.
We visited Carrara quarry , Lucca and Cinque Terre while we stayed at Monteverde.
While you are in the area you MUST eat at Armanda restaurant ( in the old town of Castelnuovo ) , food is simply fab and reasonably priced with a lovely view ( if the weather allows outside seating )
