About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Camogli is a small, unspoiled fishing village tucked into a cove just the other side of the Portofino Penninsula. This is an alive Italian Village and a favorite spot for Italian's. We first visited Camogli in 1992 and fell in love with charm of this old village lined with pastel 'Trompe l'oeil' buildings. It was a dream come true to finally buy and restore an apartment right on the water and live in the heart of Camogli where we could enjoy the village to the fullest. The apartment has four large windows from which the Ocean, Camogli, the village of San Rocco, the Monte di Portofino and the 'Golfo Paradiso' can be seen.

The town has an excellent beach, and a small fishing Port where fresh fish can be purchased directly from the boats or from the local fish shops nearby.
There are many wonderful trails on the Portofino Penninsula. One can hike to San Rocco,or the abbey of San Fruttuoso(15th century) and even Portofino from Camogli.

A car is not a necessity in Camogli as there are ferries and trains to Genova, Rapallo, San Fruttuoso, Portofino, Santa Margarita, Cinque Terre and more. There is a little tourist office (IAT) near Piazza Schiaffino, and they are happy to assist you with train tickets, schedules and any questions you might have. There are many wonderful restaurants in Camogli offering fresh fish, regional pasta dishes 'troffie al pesto', 'pansotti con salsa di noci' and more. Via Garabaldi, the street on the water is lined with gelato shops, focacceria shops where one can sample the famous 'focaccia col formagio', boutiques for shopping, fresh homemade pasta shops (if you wish to cook at home), wonderful cafe's and bars for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are a couple of great wine shops, and often you will find an English speaking person to help with your selection.


The apartment is on the fourth floor (above ground level) the building entrance is a few steps up from the beach level and a few steps down from the main street of the village. From there it's 43 steps up to the apartment.

Should you arrive at the Genova airport and need transportation to Camogli we are happy to make arrangements with Sergio (Camogli taxi driver) to meet you, gather your belongings and provide a scenic 30 minute drive to Camogli. Sergio will deliver you to the beautiful apartment where you will be greeted by your hostess Elaine who ensures an enjoyable transition from traveler to guest by an introduction to the picturesque village and the apartment with its many amenities. Elaine is there to make certain the apartment is completely ready in every way, answer all your questions about the unit and the magical village Camogli. You've been traveling for hours or possibly days so you will appreciate the careful arrangements that have been made for you to ensure this last leg of your journey is the beginning of a wonderful visit. These same arrangements are available as you reluctantly depart Camogli.

Amenities: Queen-size med firm bed in bedroom with en-suite bathroom, large convertible sofa bed in living room, 8 foot leather sofa (can also be used as a single bed). Well equipped kitchen, beautiful wine glasses and china. You will also find many guide books, cook books and maps. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED.
