Perfect base camp for Cinque Terra and so much more
"With all the hype about Cinque Terra (Rick Steves reviews on public tv in US airing about every other day) it would be easy to overlook Portovenere. What a mistake that would be! Our family of 4 with 2 17 year olds had, for us, the perfect stay in Casa Bella. Sarah was so helpful with transportation to and from La Spenzia train station, a tour of the town, making last minute dinner reservations and answering any questions we had. The apartment was so convenient to the local beach with beds and umbrellas, grocery stores, amazing restaurants, shops and the boat stop. Mussels were in prime season and we ate them almost every night. The apartment design was set up nicely for 4 people and breakfast on the patio every morning was the best! The view really is fabulous. Kitchen is extremely well stocked with all appliances and utensils. Bathroom with washing machine was clean and updated. We took the boat shuttle to Cinque Terra twice in the week and found it so easy to get around. There is also a very short ferry over to the island directly in front of the patio view for more hiking and beach/swimming activities. We had planned to do more hiking there but the temperature got into the 90's so it was such a treat just to relax and spend time in the water. We felt staying in Portovenere gave us more options than one of the Cinque Terra locations and got to live the best of both areas. You can not go wrong if you choose to stay here."
