A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that Riccardo was beyond helpful!

The town where the apartment is located (Nervi) is more of a village for Italians tourists so if you want a place aways from the thousands of tourists that populate the Cinque area, this is the place for you. It is about a 1/2 hour from Cinque Terre by train but we actually liked that part. The apartment is very updated and immaculate! I dropped something and it rolled under a dresser and there was no dust!

The apartment looks out over a protected bay. We never got tired of watching the sunsets from the living room. The little village of Nervi is quiet but active! When you walk outside of the apartment you have at least four restaurants within steps of the door and many more within a 5 minute walk. The apartment is in a little bay and a ferry boat arrives each day to take your to other ports such as Portofino or even all the way to Cinque Terre. We opted to take the train to Cinque and the ferry to the ports in between. Riccardo also has a number of brochures and helped us figure out ferry and train schedules. His restaurant recommendations were spot on! He also met us at the train and helped us get a taxi when we were ready to leave. I have to stress that this was the absolute best experience we have ever had in an arrangement like this. We would rent from Riccardo again in a heartbeat!

Thank you Riccardo for make our 30th anniversary vacation one of the best!

Great views and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple spend a week here in mid May. The location was fantastic and the views were great. The apartment itself was spacious and had many nice features, including good seating, nice kitchen with an induction cooktop and a dishwasher. There was also a clothes washer and Italian “outdoor drying line” ! It was very close to a variety of restaurants and a wonderful panoramic walk along the seaside. The only downside to this apartment was no car access for parking or for guests to drop off luggage. We parked on an adjacent street and stayed with the car while Ricardo, our contact, and our husbands carried the luggage to the apartment. Ricardo had a permit for car access prior to 11:30 am so the day that we left he drove to the apartment and loaded the luggage into his car for transport to ours which was a distance away. Ricardo was very helpful with giving us information on restaurants and sites to visit. One down side is to access this apartment one must climb 2 flights of VERY steep narrow steps. We highly recommend this apartment apart from the lack of parking availability and the steep steps.

Genoa by the sea

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering a visit to Genoa, or Cinque Terre, Riccardo's place is DEFINITELY worth considering.

We were two couples travelling together through Italy. Two separate bedrooms and separate bathrooms gave each couple the personal space and privacy that we were looking for. Riccardo met us at the local train station, and was a great assistance on all fronts. He is a fountain of knowledge about the area, gave us great tips on restaurants and local attractions.

Riccardo's apartment is better than the pictures on the web show. It is spacious, clean, everything required for a self contained stay. The location is around a 10 minute walk from the train station along the coastline; which on our day of arrival was a joy to behold!!

One consideration for the stay at Riccardo's is there are two flights of steps to contend with to get to the apartment. ( No lift ) If steps are not an issue, this is a great place to stay, and Riccardo is one of the best Hosts I have met in my travels.

I would DEFINITELY stay here again!!!

Great apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Ricarrdo was a fantastic host. Very helpful with the luggage and everything else in between. You can not beat the location...and right next to the best pizzeria in Nervi. You immediately feel like home...the toughest part is actually having to leave.

The apartment was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, it did not disappoint.

  • 5 of 5

Overall the holiday was very enjoyable. The apartment's situation in a sleepy marina suited us perfectly. Bars and restaurants within walking distance. Riccardo the host was very helpful and available to help and advise throughout our stay. Steps to the apartment were steep, but we were aware of that before we booked, they were not a problem for us. We visited other beautiful places along the coast by train and bus both of which were caught close by.
