The location on the beaches of Portovenere was perfect. It is walking distance to all the sights in town and to the ferries to Lerici, La Spezia and Cinque Terre. There are many good restaurants nearby and a grocery store and great views of the water from the house. The house is big and could easily accommodate a larger group although the two full bathrooms may limit some groups. The kitchen is also small and a bit dark. This is a good property that could be magnificent with some attention. The view from the two outdoor seating areas are the highlight. The property has no air conditioning but big windows (no screens) and fans. There are biting bugs at times so bring a net or repellent.
