“Fabulous apartment in a beautiful part of town near the port.”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

This exceeded expectations. Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and warm. Beds were comfortable, bed linen and towels of high quality. We loved the sunny garden when we wanted to relax. The port for visiting the Cinque Terrra and busses to Porto Venere and Lerici all nearby. But don't miss the nearby castle and the modern cathedral or an evening walk to admire the yachts. Finally Umberto was a wonderful host with advice on trips, taxis and information about the area. He was at the end of a telephone line if needed.

“Everything you would want on a grand scale”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

You're in Italy with your OWN garden AND your OWN protected parking spot! Does it get any better? Well...it really is just a little walk to the sea, restaurants and a little more urban life. Fabulous launching point for seeing the gorgeous tiny villages surrounding La Spezia.

Apartment is huge. I think 10 big rooms. Does not sound like Italy does it? Two large bathrooms, one with an enormous tub, the other with a shower. Nice adequat kitchen. Big dining room. Lots of extra rooms to stretch out. Plenty of everything.

Host, Umberto, is very attentive and helpful, always there with suggestions and help. Just beware: I set my GPS to the address, but couldn't just drive up because of city changes to the roads. Be sure to check with Umberto before you get there for help.

Highly recommended.

Reb is really the guest that anyone would love to host.
unfortunately her travel friend had an unexpected and she were obliged to live her Holiday alone but, judging from the method by which he followed my suggestions and my directions, I am sure she had fully enjoyed her Holiday in my home and in La Spezia's area. They deserve special mention her discretion, tidy, cleanliness and respect for the house rules.
Really worth a 5 stars review and a big recommendation to all homeowners

“Great apartment”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

This apartment was great! Was very spacious for 3 couples to stay- the photos don't do it justice! It was very clean and reasonably priced!
Umberto was a great host- he made suggestions for restaurants and transportation- even made us a reservation at one of the restaurants.
Nice quiet location, bit of a walk from the train station (short bus ride though), but only 10min away from the boats to the cinque Terre areas. There was even an outdoor area off the apartment.
Would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again:)

Very nice and spacious apartment, suitable for large group of family & friends.
Great Host (& Co) who strived their best to make us feel at home upon arrival by giving us lots of tips of what to do, where and how to reach the places, etc. More importantly, they provided us great assistance on special transport arrangement upon our request and even helped coordinate with transport company due to our language barrier!

Inging and her family and friends (10 people total) have positively impressed us for their education, tidy and cleaning.
They were very friendly and informal.
It has been a Group not heavy at all to host.
It was a surprise to find the house so cleaned and tidy after their three days staying.
Were really very welcome and we do our congratulations.
....They donated us even a little gift.
-- It was very nice ---
We are pleased to have been able to help them in booking their transfer to their next Holiday destination.
We retain good memories of these 10 people and recommend them to all hosts.

“Spacious apartment perfect for visiting Cinque Terre”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful stay with a family of five adults. The apartment is really spacious, meticulously clean and centrally located. There is even a private gated guarding with free parking!

The central station is a 20 minute stroll through the beautiful city, so it is a perfect for those who wish to visit Cinque Terre.

Umberto gave great tips on restaurants in the neighborhood that is 1 minute walk from the waterfront. We will surely stay here again when we return.

It was really a positive experience hosting Paul-Letta, her mother, brother and their two friends. They are really unformal and nice people. We gave them all the support they need to fully enjoy their visiting our area and we are sure they appreciated that. Their tidy and cleanliness deserve a particular mention. Strictly recomanded to everyone.

6 of us stayed at Umberto's apartment in La Spezia in May and we had an excellent stay. Umberto was very nice, helpful and easy to communicate with. The apartment is large, has a beautiful outdoor courtyard space and is very nicely located.

I would recommend this listing to anyone looking to visit La Spezia or the Cinque Terre area this year.

Merci pour votre revision Claire.
Vous et vos amis de voyage étaient les bienvenus et parfaits.
Permettez-moi seulement 2 commentaires:
dans l'annonce est clairement indiqué que nous ne fournissons pas le lave-vaisselle (il n'est pas nécessaire d'inclure le commentaire dans la révision);
En été, malheureusement, nous ne pouvons pas souvent appeler le jardinier pour garder la maison en ordre parce que j'ai toujours des invités et je ne veux pas les déranger.
Cordialement
Umberto

Thank you for your review Claire.
You and your travel buddies were welcome and perfect at all.
Allow me only 2 comments:
in the announcement is clearly stated that we do not provide the dishwasher (it is not necessary to include the comment in the revision);
In the summer, unfortunately, we can not often call the gardener to keep the house tidy because I always have guests and I do not want to bother them.
Kind regards
Umberto
