“If you like trains, you will love this place”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We love Santa Margherita, having stayed in the town four times previously but always in hotels.
Franco met us on arrival at the train station and took us to his apartment which was less than 200 metres away.and straight down from the station. It is not, as described , 50 metres from the sea, more likely 250 metres but the sea front is easy enough to get to. The apartment is in a small , block of 8 and just as described. It is bright and airy, decorated and furnished in a modern style. There is plenty of storage space and lots of extra linen and towels.
There were a couple of matters needing attention on our arrival .We did have to do a quick shop for some essentials, toilet rolls being most important! Plus maybe Italians don't drink tea as much as we English - but there were only some tiny espresso cups to use. There was also a problem with an electric plug in the kitchen. Franco came quickly to rectify this and brought two mugs with him.
The apartment is well situated, the town and sea front being nearby. There are many good cafes and restaurants and shops with a good range of items. We recommend caffe del borgo a pasticeria by the basilica - also the bread shop Panificio pinamonti, in via del arco, turn left at the Post Office just down the street from the apartment.
We particularly enjoyed evening meals at Restorante Pizzeria da Emilio. Situated on piazza martiri delle liberia, on the sea front - the food is excellent, the staff so welcoming and the company good.
There are boat trips , don't miss Portofino and Rapallo, and excursions can be arranged using trains or buses to a variety of places. Cinque Terre is popular but you need to be more mobile and younger than us for that. We are 75 and 79 and happy to stroll along the sea front, or sit with a cold drink or ice cream and watch the world go by. Santa Margherita is a lovely place to be and Franco's apartment suited us well. except for the trains.
As the title suggests, if you are a train fanatic you will be in your seventh heaven in Franco's apartment. The train track runs alongside, within 20yards , and it is very busy both with freight and passenger trains. It is also very noisy, especially at night. Perhaps a set of ear plugs would help! Unfortunately there is no air conditioning - a couple of electric fans would improve matters. Because of the noise we closed the bedroom window which made the room stuffy and hot and didn't cut the noise down entirely. In fairness , potential clients should be made aware of the nearness of the railway line. Double glazing would help to solve the noise.
But it is amazing what you can get used to - and in spite of the trains, we did enjoy our holiday. Given the implementation of the suggested changes i.e. fans/double glazing, we feel able to recommend this apartment as a good place to be for anyone.
