This was a lovely and friendly place to stay away from the hectic Cinque Terre but within easy reach. The studio apartment was well equipped, modern, clean and quiet. The swimming pool, set a little away from the residence, looked inviting although we didn't use it ourselves. Thank you to Filippe for his warm welcome and all the valuable information he provided. He went out of his way to help. Also thank you to Vivek for the supplies for our trip and the 'apertivi' we enjoyed whilst relaxing in our courtyard. Highly recommend Olivium to anyone travelling by car.

In the evening, there is the possibility to have an Italian "aperitivo" by ordering some "bruschetta" and cool drinks and taste them in the patio overlooking the countryside.
