Relaxation and great spot
This house is located in great spot of the peninsula, 20mn walking distance from Portofino and 45mn to Santa Margherita. Even if the house is down the main road, we didn't hear any car noises. It's quite spacious (3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) with a big living space which open on the small cove of Niasca. We loved having breakfast and dinner there, with the sound of the waves on the background and the view through the huge french windows. The size of the house is really nice for 6 to 8 people.
We stayed on the lower level of the house (the top level was rented to another family, and below was Watersport services which open at 8am, very nice people). The top level of the house gets the chance to have a private space on a flat rock but we didn't had that chance.
Therefore, because there are almost no public beaches in the peninsula, this cove is crowded from 9am to 7pm. We expected that it would be public but not that crowded. So if you don't put your towels and kind of reserve your spot early morning (8am), you won't find any space although you're just in front. We recommend the right side of the beach as you get the sun all day. And you don't have a direct access to the beach, which is a problem for the kids as the can't cross the road alone.
The house is very charming but needs a serious refreshment and therefore, I have to say the price paid is really high for the amenities you get: for example, last bathroom does not have a proper water pressure and if somebody takes a shower in the other 2 bathrooms, the water is cold. To be honest for the same price/night, we had a luxury 4 stars hotel in the best area of Florence and for half price, we got 3 big bedrooms in a fantastic agriturismo with high comfort, breakfast included, all modern amenities.
Regarding the activities, We recommend to walk toward San fruttuoso by the pathway, it's a lovely journey (lunch at La Cantina there), in Portofino, we liked the beautiful restaurants "Magazin" (wonderful Fish) and "Tripoli" (best Pesto ever) and enjoy the fresh fish market of Santa Margherita (from 5pm). Of course, enjoy some watersport just downstairs in the protected bay.
Very charming house in a marvellous place
We have spent a great week in this unique area where we enjoyed walking in the natural park, going to Portfino by walking, eating delicious sea food and pasta. What else? the view on the sea andthe sound of the waves!
Great Place to stay.
This is a quaint, classic place to stay. Access to Portofino via walking trail and bus stop nearby give you lots of options for activity and dining. Also shorter walking distance to Paraggi, where the restaurants are Very Very Good. (The Eight is stellar).The hiking trail to abbazia di san fruttuoso starts nearby and is a great day hike. Giancarla is helpful and responsive.
Tiffany and Brad were very good at exploiting all the opportunities that this holiday can offer: for those like them who choose not to rent a car, Outdoorportofino down stairs, in addition to the activities related to the sea, offers a bike rental service, bringing them directly to Niasca for you... really not bad!
Idyllic, charming holiday home
This idyllically located holiday home offered something for everyone in our party. The sunbathers, the sun-shy, the active and the restful.
We had a private view on to one of the loveliest coves on the Ligurian coast. Within easy walking distance of Portofino and Santa Margheurita de Ligure, where there are lots of bars and restaurants serving great (if pricey) food and drinks. Great walks and hikes, with water sports on offer literally 'downstairs'.
The house offers flexible accommodation and reminded us of times gone by. Our host was lovely and we hope to go back one day.
I really appreciated the enthusiasm and the ability to enjoy all the features of this I greatly appreciated the enthusiasm and the ability to enjoy all the features of this special area of the Italian Riviera.
I really hope to meet you again in Niasca in the future as welcome guests.

Extremely Pleased with our Experience
Our experience with VRBO was very positive. Ms. Serra was prompt and helpful online and in person. We found the flat at Niasca roomy, charming and well-maintained. The location was quiet despite being close to the main road. The view of the water and access to the beach makes this place very special. We certainly hope to vacation at Niasca again.
Thanks Harmony, you are the ideal guests for the care of the house, for your kindness and politeness.
