Fantastic home overlooking the bay. This home has a fantastic patio with sweeping southeast views. So lots of morning sun. Yes there are steps (108 which is pictured) upto the property but the property/home is worth it. The property owner Roberta is a pleasure to deal with & you must inquire into a dinner prepared by her. There is a beach club directly below the property, the village of Portovenere is a 15 minute walk (halway there is the market). There you can find restaurants, gelato, shops & boat excursions to Cinque Terre. The home itself is very comfortable as all of the room sizes are very nice. The kitchen is very functional as well. And if you are sunbather there is an outdoor shower to cool off. The yard has a fig, plum and olive tree's. Every evening we found ourselves on the patio enjoying the view to the drink of the night with prosciutto & melon. We hope to find another trip in the future to this spot.
A wonderful holiday
We had a wonderful holiday in Portovenere. We were guests of Roberta who welcomed us on arrival and was so very helpful assisting us with information and arrangements before and during our stay.
Her villa is beautiful, with a magnificent view of the sea. The accommodation was excellent, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, a comfortable living room, a well supplied kitchen and a huge table where we were all able to dine together.
Roberta explained everything we needed to know about the villa, how to work appliances,to operate lights and manage our stay. The villa has everything you need, towels, toiletries, books, games, music, tv and all the cleaning materials you need for the dishwasher ,washing machine etc.
Roberta kindly did some shopping for us so we had some provisions on arrival and also went to fetch us some takeaway food for our first meal .
It is a very comfortable home and Roberta kept in touch during the week to make sure all was ok.
The garden and terraces are a great outside space where we could relax,have lunch and enjoy the view.
Roberta also explained that the supermarket and bus stop were close by, and very kindly helped us with church times.
The villa is situated in a very pretty village with choice of boat or bus and train to explore the Cinque Terre.
I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to enjoy a restful holiday in a beautiful region of Italy.
It has bee a pleasure to host you in our property. Thank you very much for your words , I'm very happy when my guests spent a happy and relaxed holiday at our house.
Perfect Italian coastal town and even better place to enjoy it
Got lucky to be one of the first to book this beautiful and perfect home for 2 families - 10 people in all. Plenty of bedrooms (and bathrooms) for everyone - especially because we spent nearly all our time on the wrap around, multi-level terraces with amazing views over the water. Less than 5 minute walk to beach (one of the few around) and less than 10 into town. Parked our car at the beginning of our stay and never used again. The place is very much a home - not a staged and empty vacation rental so kitchen was fully-stocked and place was very easy to live in and experience the Italian coast. Roberta was a great host with exact recommendations for restaurants and boat trips and itineraries. Highly recommend
Better than the photos!!! Unbelievable!
Roberta and her family are so so kind! We arrived earlier than expected, but Roberta still welcomed us without hesitation! The villa is a home, and the view is incredible. Everything you need is either in the house or just walking distance to grab it. We loved the outside shower, and breakfast on the terrace! Can’t say enough about this home and Roberta! We hope to come back very soon!
Thank you very much for your words Allison. It is the first year that we are renting the villa and when I read the review as yours and the others guests before you I think that we did the right choice . I hope to see you and Aaron and your marvelous kids again . Thanks Roby
Beautiful property! Better than the pictures!
Roberta's home-cooked meal of Caprese salad, prosciutto, pesto lasagna, and tiramisu was one of everyone's favorite dinner from our trip and a meal we will never forget. It was already incredible to arrive to such a beautiful house and outdoor space, and the delicious prepared meal waiting for us after hours of travel was icing on the cake!
Additional thoughtful touches included a portable crib with soft bedding for our toddler (who slept great!), advice on local attractions, and quick responses to questions. Roberta went above and beyond to help ensure a memorable stay.
As she states in her home description, there are lots of stairs up to the house — but the climb is worth it. Truly an unforgettable home in an unforgettable town.
The property was very clean and well stocked with dishes. Plenty of room for the 9 of us. It was wonderful to have areas that held all if us together both in the house and on the porches.
We took advantage of the parking spaces although the vehicles were not needed. We took the ferry from Porto Venere to see the local sights - it was much easier than driving. The downtown of Porto Venere and the marina were an easy walk. The local grocery had everything we needed and there is a lovely playground on the way to the town that our toddler loved.
The views from the porch are spectacular. We watched the ships and sailboats. We could see the marble peaks of the Alps in the distance. The property is very private and quiet. Lots of birds and tiers of landscaped property.
We dream of returning. Thank you Roberta for such a memorable stay.
you moved me with your review. For me it was an honor to have hosted a family as beautiful as yours. Cloe was the first child housed in our home and it was a pleasure to make her stay comfortable. I really hope to meet you again and it was a pleasure to chat with you.
une vue magnifique sur le golfe des poètes
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable à la villa Roby. La villa est à 5' à pied de Portovenere et elle est bien située pour visiter la région.
La villa offre une vue magnifique sur la mer et elle est bien équipée, fonctionnelle, et d'une grande propreté.
Mi dispiace molto non avervi potuto incontrare , grazie tanto per aver lasciato tutto in ordine ed aver scelto la nostra villa . Roberta
I can arrange cooking course , dinner at home , wine tour in the canteen near Apuane Alps , private excursions by boat around the island in front of Portovenere or Cinque Terre with the possibility to have a lunch or dinner on board.
you can get Florence by car or by train in a hour an half , Pisa in a hour . Lucca in a hour and fifteen . the car is recommended but you can use also the bus; the bus stop is close to the villa. you can reach the main beach, Arenella, with a walking of 5 minute from the stairs .
