We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights at the end of September. The property is exactly as described and was the perfect place for our visit to Cinque Terre. It is a very comfortable apartment and had everything we needed for our stay, including two Moka pots for morning coffee.
Ambretta and Bruno are great hosts, they picked us up at the train station even though we were two hours late due to a delayed flight.
We got to enjoy a few swims in the (huge) pool while we were there. (Ambretta was kind to provide us with pool towels.) The apartment is located at the edge of town on a hill, it's a very quiet neighborhood but it is uphill coming from town by foot. Nothing too difficult, a very nice walk through a few neighborhoods. We always felt very safe, even walking home late at night. Also an easy walk to the train station.
We actually enjoyed our time in Levanto more than the touristy and busy towns of Cinque Terre. We went to the outdoor market which takes place every Wednesday morning and enjoyed a few great meals in town. We're looking forward to coming back.
Delightful residence in historic hotel on beautiful grounds
My wife and I stayed in this apartment in early October for 4 nights and loved it! The owners met us at the train station and drove us to the property, which is only 4 blocks or so away, showing us foot paths and walking routes to town and points of
interest. The apartment is fully equipped, exceptionally clean, and delightful. The property has a great safety and grounds manager-Sri, and his wife and answered all our questions. The pools close Oct. 1 SO DID NOT USE THEM BUT THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL IN THEIR SETTING. The apt does not look out over town, which is a good hike up a foot/stair way, about a 10 minute walk, but has great windows and light looking onto the back garden walls and area. We really liked all of Levanto in its entirety and are so glad we stayed there instead of Cinque Terra towns as there is so much more to do, places to eat, and great dining, hiking, biking options with way less tourists. Ciao

"A very nice setting for the apartment, Used to be a hotel, now converted to apartments, lift to floor and stairs. Laundry area on sundeck on top of building, fantastic pool and area around, overlooks Levanto and the Beach, stunning vistas, all in all a very nice apartment. The owner met us at Levanto train station, and took us to the apartment (thank you) very nice bonus."

"The apartment had everything you need for a self catering stay. It was very comfortable and well situated. The view from the apartment was onto a garden wall which was a little disapointing. The price of the apartment was very reasonable compared to other apartments near Cinque Terre and this apartment was only 10 minutes walk from the town and the station. The owner was extremely helpful and gave us lots of useful information when we moved in. My wife unfortunately broke her ankle in town and the owner was again very helpful in letting us know how to get medical attention and she continued to take an interest in my wife's condition for many weeks after we had left the apartment."

"This is a small one bedroom flat located in Levanto. The flat is in a building that was formerly a hotel. There is a living area containing 2 settes, a table and 4 chairs and an american style kitchenette. There is a separate bathroom and double bedroom. The bedroom contains a single wardrobe and 2 bedside cabinets. The bathroom contains a shower cublicle, WC, bidet and washbasing alongside a top loaded washing machine. There is no dedicated parking available to this flat, but there is parking available on the street in front of the building (free). The flat is located approximately 5 minute walk to the railway station (Levanto) through a pedistrian walkway. The town centre is 5 minutes away by taking a flight of stairs and a pedestrian walkway. The pros of the flat are that it is located near the station and the town centre (which was important to us as we went walking in the Cinque terre and portofino by catching the train). The cons of the flat are that there is no view from the flat (the windows back onto the back garden of the property which is short and then a tall wall. Also the property has no outside area to sit and relax. There is a shared pool but it was empty (no water) when we were there and so we could not use it. The property has a porter. The hallway that leads to the flat in the property is somewhat dark and drab. The shower cubicle of the property needs to be refurbished as it is quite old and now has some mouldy areas. The property has some old fashioned electrics in that you cannot have the oven on at the same time as the water heater. The water heater is good for only a 7-8 minute shower after which the water goes cold. The next person to have a shower then has to wait a good 15 minutes before being able to use the hot water in the shower again.
This property is suitable for a couple wishing to walk in the area. However the property needs to be refurbished especially the shower."
bon séjour à Levanto
Très belle semaine dans cette ville pleine de charme et à proximité des cinque Terre. En ce qui concerne le logement, celui-ci est très bien placé (à proximité de la gare,du centre et de la plage), la piscine est un plus non négligeable l'été, par contre la literie est à revoir, nous avons assez mal dormi... il y a aussi bcp de fourmis dans la pièce commune, surtout dans la cuisine. Sinon l'appartement est simple et fournit le nécessaire.
Les propriétaires sont très gentils et monsieur parle français ce qui nous a facilité la tâche.
Take the speedway Genova/Livorno. Get out at Carrodano. Proceed left to Levanto (15 minutes).
To go beyond the railway station.To go beyond the avenue planted with trees until the crossing.
Then take the rigth and proceed for 800 metres
