Favorite Area after 5 weeks in Europe
The Camogli area was our favorite area in Europe. We all love the water and the views from this rental were the best. There are two terrance's, that look out over a lovely old fishing harbor. The area is filled with old world charm. Cafes, Restaurants, Grocery stores, and the train which takes you to Chinque Terra, Genoa, and even Pisa are a walk away.
The down side is that there are lots of stairs. No problem for us but be prepared to climb. No parking near the apartment. Drop off your bags and park by the grocery store. Park within the white lines and you can leave your car there free. The bedrooms were very small and the beds were not very comfortable. I did address a few other concerns I had with the owner and she said she would take care of them. We in America are use to large spaces and things that are new and shiny. This apartment is really very charming with it's lovely built-ins and funky small spaces.
Beautiful apartment in Camogli
This apartment had everything an American could want. A spectacular view of the harbor and Ligurian Sea, easy access to train and bus, markets, restaurants and shops. We loved the friendly people of Camogli and hated to leave for our sidetrips. Beds and bathrooms well maintained and comfortable, well supplied. A little climb to get up there but what isn't a climb in Italy? We loved it. Also very responsive owner.
It was a pleasure to have you as guests! Thank you
Lovely place with a breathtaking view
Gianna's apartment is incredibly charming with an incredible view from the terrace. Check-in was straightforward and the position is ideal - within easy reach of the train station and the amenities of Camogli, but in an elevated position. It's well appointed, with two bathrooms and everything you would need. For those with kids, there's even a small children's playground within a couple of minutes, which was an unexpected bonus.
Speaking personally, I would love to come back at a different time of year, since even the end of August proved a little too hot for me! I would also make sure I brought some strong anti-mosquito spray with me (I bought some in Camogli but it wasn't entirely effective).
Thank you !!!
Nice appartment, but some practical disadvantages
The appartment in a nice tipical building is right in the center of Camogli. The terrace with view is probably the best part of it. We were there in a hot August week and it was to warm for most of the day on the terrace so we had to have our siesta inside with all shutters closed. No moscito screens to facilitate open up all windows at night for a cool down. The appartment is advertised for five persons but bed nr 5 is on a foldable coach in living room. Description is not very clear on that point. Well equiped kitchen. Good shower. Responsive and cooperative owner. Parking is a problem. We unloaded near the house and had to take away the car immediately and park it a 15min walk away uphill so left it there the rest of the week. No way you will find a parking place closeby. Camogli is quite touristical with a crowded beach but very scenic. If that is what you are looking for, you a right in the middle of it in this house. Probably the experience will be better if you are not in the high summer season.
We always inform our guests about the parking difficulties , and the presence of two bedrooms and a sofabed in the apartment !
This may be the most amazing place to stay in the most amazing town
My wife and I have traveled in Italy quite a bit. And have been surprised to find a lot of IKEA furniture and not great taste! This house in Camogli is the opposite. Every detail has been added to this house with love. It’s like stepping into a movie set of 1950s Italy. And that movie set includes the picturesque town that can be seen outside these windows. It’s close to everything. It was a wonderful place to stay we hope to come back someday.
Thanks to this wonderful family for sharing our place !
The house was good, not great. My overall impression is that there could have been some upgrades in the home to improve my overall review. I would have liked better towels, a new shower curtain, fresh soaps in the kitchen and baths and, most importantly, a mattress that one could sleep on. Camogli is a lovely location, but there are a lot of steps and hills to climb. We were able to do so, but others may not be so they should be made aware. While the house has a view of the sea, it should be mentioned that the view is over a boatyard, which can be noisy.
Overall, our experience was good, not 5 star.
Dear guest , the mattress was brand-new and top quality ; we never supply soap in the kitchen and bathrooms , no problem to supply . Thank you for you suggestion about the curtain , but to tell the truth the shower is in the main bathroom and it has a glass door. As far as Camogli ... You are right it is full of hills and steps !!!
Central independent house with 2 terraces .It reached on foot by a staircase of 25 steps. Home only to Camogli on two floors, two terraces (one space and furnished with chairs, dining table and chairs. Magnificent view. Camogli is ideal for walking on Mount Portofino and visits by boat to San Fruttuoso
From Camogli you can reach by train the city of Genoa, its quaint old town, the aquarium and several exhibitions that are held throughout the year at the Palazzo Ducale.
By train or bus, you can reach Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapallo. By train you reach the board of villages of the Cinque Terre
and the surrounding area.
