Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had the most wonderful week in "The Attic". Rapallo, what a wonderful place to spend a Holiday!! The Appartment is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Franca: such a lovely lady, who has gone to great lengths to ensure this has been a "WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE".... We see nothing to improve upon. Jan + Rob (UK) June 2014





We have had a fantastic time in this apartment, every thing is wonderful. Great base and good to have a lift to the top floor! So easy to get around from here. The apartment is exceptionally well kitted out and the decor is amazing - love the art work. We see nothing to improve on. Best wishes for the future. Love Margaret and Ken Glasgow,Scotland July 2014





We had a wonderful week here in Rapallo. Really appreciated Franca's very warm welcome. Visited some lovely out-of-the-way places, over the walks on the Portofino Promontory and behind the Church at Montallegro at the end of the cable car ride. Of course, Genoa + Cinque Terre want a visit and very easy on the train. We didn't use our car this week!!!!! Thank you, Franca, for letting us stay in your lovely flat.

Sue + Ray Nottingham,UK July/August 2014





Franca made us most welcome to the "Attic"!!! The apartment is very comfortable and we loved looking out to the sea. A wonderful location so close to everything. We did not need a car as the bus, trains and ferry are so convenient. The weather was kind to us, do not belive the internet forecast!!! We love Italy and will recommend this area and the apartment to our friends. Thank you. Moira + Geoff Northamptonshire,UK September 2014

Further Details:

Rapallo is considered a complete and cozy tourist town. Situated in the heart of the Gulf of Tigullio, nestled among the green shores of the promontory of Portofino and the rocky cliffs of Zoagli, offering fascinating views from its shores and walks on the extensive network of hiking trails. The scenic Lungomare Vittorio Veneto is adorned by a long row of palm trees, fantastic restaurants and bars all the way down to the old castle on the sea and its unique shape, which is one of the symbols of the city. Built in 1550 and recently restored, it is now home to prestigious exhibitions and conferences. On July 3rd of each year it is the main character of the famous and beautiful patron saint festival (1-2-3 July) in honor of the apparition of Our Lady of Montallegro. In fact, during the last 8 long fireworks that take place throughout the three days, the castle is burnt down artificially with a white waterfall that descends towards the sea from its roof and an output of red smoke from its windows, which create a unique effect in the world. Behind it, on the hill, there is the Shrine of Our Lady of Montallegro destination for many pilgrims from all over Italy, easily reachable by cable car, the only one in Liguria, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire Gulf up to Genoa. The old town of medieval origin offers the opportunity to make high class shopping and visit interesting monuments: the civic tower, the basilica, the oratory of the White Fathers, the oratory of the Black Fathers, the Poor Clare monastery and the abbey "Valle Christi". Many cultural activities such as exhibitions, concerts and conferences are organized throughout the year at the Cultural Academy, the International Library, the Lace Museum and the Museum Gaffoglio.

In every season you can play a variety of sports such as golf, tennis, swimming, sailing, boating, windsurfing, fishing, diving, scuba diving, horse riding, cycling and many other disciplines.

A wonderful apartment in a super town!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this apartment, Rapallo and Liguria in general. Both Franca and Maria could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Maria's tips for the monthly antiques market, Rapallo market, places to visit, cafes, shops and restaurants made our stay all the more wonderful. This lovely, light and large apartment is perfectly situated both in Rapallo itself and on this coast for easy access to all the delights of Liguria and the rail, bus and boat services were all very close by and easy to use. I wish we were still there!

Lovely appartment with amazing views and location and perfectly presented

  • 5 of 5

Arrived after a long day of travelling to be met by Maria who was so helpful and left us with lovely provisions to enjoy our first night.

The apartment is just perfect for enjoying Rapello and the location is just great, as near the sea front and the beautiful town centre. We had the most wonderful holiday and break and we would recommend this apartment and Rapallo as the best place to explore the Italian dream destination.

Thank you so much to Maria and her family for one of the best and needed breaks we have every had..if you cant relax here you never will !

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this wonderful apartment 2 weeks ago. Correspondence with Franca and Maria was excellent so whole booking process was easy and a great introduction and explanation was provided on arrival. Apartment is in a great location and a true home-from-home. Fitted and furnished to a high level with everything thought of. Great local places to visit by bus and train so easy to get around without a car. Would highly recommend.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely apartment in Rapallo. Franca was a great host always answering our emails in advance of our trip, making suggestions for car parking and accommodating a slight date change. She even welcomed us with some delicious focaccia. The apartment is in a great location and very spacious with everything you would need for your stay. We had rented a car but ended up leaving it parked for free for the week and using the trains and ferries which are both within walking distance of the apartment. The local grocery store is also close by as well as many delicious restaurants and shopping area. We even purchased some fresh pasta, salad and buffalo mozzarella and made our own meal one night. Rapallo is a great location to use as a home base to Cinque Terre, Portofino, Genoa. I am missing the beautiful views, great food, singing birds, long walks and sunshine already. Thanks Franca for a wonderful stay.

Great appartment and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great appartment in a great location. The owner could not have been more helpful finding us car parking and welcoming us with Prosecco and providing plenty of information about Rapallo. Franca welcomes you into her apartment and makes you feel as if it is your own home - highly recommended.
