Lovely stay with all the comforts to enjoy this beautiful part of Italy!
This is a wonderful place to enjoy the area! We were super comfortable and really enjoyed our stay at your lovely home! Super clean and tidy with plenty of room for our 3 person family. The well equipped kitchen was great, and we SO appreciated the lovely welcome basket and the fresh eggs! What a nice, helpful family! Thank you.
We drove to the train station in Recco and phoned for directions, within 10 minutes Lorenzo met us and guided us to the house. The view was breathtaking and the house elegant and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well equipped. Lorenzo, Ines and family were most welcoming and helpful. There was wine and a lovely welcoming food basket, they also dropped off cherries and some fresh eggs. Their directions for hiking, dining and groceries were outstanding. Our time in San Lorenzo Della Costa was magical, everything we had hoped for.
The hiking is fantastic, hiking to San Fruttuoso Abbey is well worth it. Lorenzo guided us to a parking lot to shorten the hike, it is steep in places but well marked with good footing. We went both directions, down to the water and back, taking the ferry one way is another option. The hike was a grand way to build an appetite for the best food we've had in Italy at Da Oreste, we ate there twice! Da Oreste is a short walk so we enjoyed their outstanding house wine. Across from Da Oreste is an alimentaria (grocery store), the owner was very helpful and the prices reasonable.
It was a real pleasure for us to have you here
the location of the house and the atmosphere that is breathed S. Lorenzo of the coast is unique and we are also close to Camogli, Santa Margherita center and Portofino
We salute you
Lovley house with great view
Very clean and nice place with wonderful landlord. We will definitely come back!
Sono felici di offrire una casa confortevole.
La posizione panoramica aiuta e rende unico il soggiorno nella nostra casa
It was more like visiting a friend than renting an apartment. Friendly hello's and waves at every opportunity, fresh fruit, vegetables and baked treats appeared on a regular basis, and Ines even stopped on a very rainy afternoon as we were walking back from San Lorenzo and gave a welcome ride to us and a very wet dog. If there was any problem, we only had to mention it and it was quickly resolved.
We like to hike and there were more trails within a few hundred meters than we could explore in a month. Most of them, however, were quite steep in places, so you need to make a commitment to get in physical condition to really enjoy it all.
The view of the Ligurian Sea from the front porch is just breathtaking. One morning there will be bright orange and red cumulus clouds in the sky, the next morning an incredible clear blue, and the next gray clouds that allow the sun to shine through to the water like Broadway stage lights. (Of course, there were also some mornings where you couldn't see it at all because of heavy rain :-))
Bus service almost hourly made travel in the vicinity very easy (hike down and take the bus back!) so we had little need for our car while we were there. Perhaps also a good thing because backing down the narrow, steep driveway and getting out onto the roadway right in front of a blind curve was not for the faint of heart!
The apartment is a bit remote from shopping and activity centers, so it is perhaps more suited for nature lovers than shop-'till-you-drop types. If you are looking for a relaxing get-away from the madding crowds vacation, you will look long and hard to find anything better.
Great stay overlooking Santa Margherita Ligure
We have just returned from a week at Signora Ines Repetto’s apartment in San Lorenzo della Costa overlooking Santa Margherita. We were warmly welcomed and impressed by the hospitality offered by Ines and her family. The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed breakfasts on the small terrace with a great view of the Riviera Levante. Ines’ outstanding welcome package of assorted fruits and groceries was very useful to us as new arrivals. Bus travel to neighboring towns is convenient. We also had a car and made use of the parking on premises. It was a great stay.
Apartment was very well e...
Apartment was very well equipped (there was everything we needed). View from the house was outstanding. Ines and hole family were very friendly and helpful (we visited Italy many times, also using Homelidays but I have to say the hospitality of her family was the best I ever seen). At the arrival we were surprised by receiving a gift - set of regional products. Owners spoke english but we tried to use as much italian as we could :)
L'appartamento era molto ben attrezzata (c'era tutto il necessario). La vista dalla casa era eccezionale. Ines e la sua famiglia erano molto cordiale e disponibile (abbiamo visitato l'Italia molte volte, anche usando Homelidays, ma devo dire che l'ospitalità della sua famiglia è stato il migliore che ho mai visto). All'arrivo siamo stati sorpresi da ricevere un regalo - i prodotti regionali. Proprietari parlano inglese, ma abbiamo cercato di utilizzare il più italiano che potevamo :)
Comfortably accessible by the autoclave exit of Recco (8 km) or Rapallo (7,5 km)
