I initially was planning to stay in a Cinque Terre village but when I did some research I found out that there were more conveniences as well as a very accessible beach that one can enjoy for free in the off hours in Levanto. WOW! Am I glad I made this decision! Villa Clelia was perfect for my situation. It is very close to the beach and I like to walk on the beach in the very early morning or at sunset. I was able to do this. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the train station and the walk is not difficult. I walked back and forth from station to Villa Clelia several times in one day and got some great exercise without it being "too much" if you know what I mean.
The owners are very hospitable and will answer questions via email prior to your stay. They will also pick you up from the train station on your arrival date and take you to the station on your departure date. This is very helpful. They even picked a few lemons from their beautiful lemon tree for me to have with my water. These lemons were so fragrant and wonderful! They also got me a Cinque Terre train pass for my next day so I could use the trains between Cinque Terre towns very easily.
In order not to be redundant...all the good things in previous reviews are true :-)
My room had air conditioning and a mini-fridge. Both were very helpful. Bed was comfortable. Hint: The sun can be strong in the rooms on the upper floor so keep the shutters closed to keep to room cooler during the day when you are out.
Levanto is not as touristy as the Cinque Terre towns and has many great shops and restaurants. It is a very lively town! I liked it so much that I hope to return and will stay at Villa Clelia again.
