Property description

Casa Bella is located in the fisherman's village of Portovenere (just listed by New York Times as one of the top 45 most beautiful places to visit on earth and one of the UNESCO world heritage sites), not to mention one of the most beautiful and romantic villages of the Italian Riviera! Portovenere is the perfect hub for visiting the CinqueTerre yet less crowded and less touristy. The apartment is very conveniently located just a five minute walk from the historical center and from local restaurants, supermarkets, beaches, and the ferry dock. From April-October ferries regularly depart for the CinqueTerre villages.

Casa Bella is a two bedroom one bathroom apartment with a fantastic view and a nice terrace overlooking the Poet's Gulf. Upon entering to your right is the dining table that seats up to six and the living room area with a big window that overlooks the panoramic terrace. To your left is a small but totally renovated new kitchen with microwave, dishwasher,coffee maker,etc. There are two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has two single beds and the master bedroom has a queen-size bed and two extra bunk beds for children. The master bedroom also has a great sea view. The bathroom has a nice sized shower which was remodelled in 2010. There is also a washing machine and air conditioning.

This is the perfect set up for two couples or for a family. The owner,Sarah is American and supplies a very helpful housebook with lots of local information and is very easy to communicate with. She is also usually available during your stay for any assistance or questions you might have. For those wishing to visit the area without a car, the owner is happy to pick guests up upon arrival at the train station in La Spezia free of charge (when possible). A driver is available at extra cost for those wishing to be picked up at the airport or upon departure.

The owner also owns 2 larger inland villas in the vicinity of the CinqueTerre for larger groups of 6-10 people which are also listed on VRBO.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: My name is Sarah Ferrari and I have been living in Italy for over 20 years. I found my love in husband Franco almost 15 years ago. I was so lucky to move to the beautiful area of La Spezia which offers so many alternatives for an outdoorsey like myself. My husband's family has owned this property since it was constructed in the 60's along with a few other properties in the area and I have been managing it for over 10 years and catering to mostly American and Australian clients.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
While staying at my property in Portovenere, if you let yourself go you will be immersed in the typical small village life that Portovenere has to offer. Away from the hussle and bussle of some of the art cities, here you will be in contact with the village people and an authentic atmosphere. Daily activities are sipping wine,people watching,dining at a good seafood restaurant and taking a ferry to one of the CinqueTerre...I's a hard life but somebody has to do it!!!
