This was a perfect apartment for our family holiday. Basic but spacious and a fantastic location to combine access to great hiking, rock climbing and sightseeing. Everything we needed to be self-contained was less than a 5 minute walk away (groceries, bars, restaurants, the beach), but still easy access to get out and about on the highway to see and experience a little more of Italy.
We had an absolutely perfect 5 days in this lovely villa. The view is without a doubt the best part of this villa, but we found the villa to be quite charming, with two very nice bedrooms (with very nice linens), a queen bed nook, and a well appointed kitchen for preparing meals (including a gas grill). The private outside grounds are lovely and expansive. As others have mentioned, the steps up to the villa can be daunting, but the owner provided someone to help us with our luggage when we arrived, and there is a less strenuous route up to the villa if you choose. Personally, we enjoyed the adventure of finding new routes up to the villa each day! I found the outdoor furniture adequate, but the indoor living area could use a couple more seating options. We improvised by bringing in the outdoor furniture so that our family of four could sit together in the living area. The villa is lacking some decorative embellishments, but it didn't detract from it's charm. Be aware that there is only one bathroom and there is no internet service in the villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the villa and in Portovenere, and I would return in a heartbeat!
