We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Cinque Terre during the weekend. We stayed at the la Fransesca resort at Banassola. The place and the location itself is great, superb views and surroundings, it all came crashing when we entered our cottage. It looked neat at the outset but we had roaches and lizards popping out every now and then. I... More

All negative reviews are regrettable for us and I am really sorry that our guest did not appreciate the accomodation we put at his disposal for only € 165.00 per night (house in brickwork with entrance, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, living-room, equipped kitchenette and terrace overlooking the sea) in a park obviously inhabited by small animals typical of it, such as...

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the Cinque Terre area. First you need to realize that you aren't going to a 5 star resort. It's more of a rustic experience. But if that is what you are looking for then you've found the right place. Each of the cabins are fairly remote with great views. It is a hike... More

Rubbish and disappointing. The houses are dated, sanitary do not look clean. This should be brought back to normal standard. Too bad as the resort has a good potential, nice sea view and a good location between Bonasolla and Levanto. Car is a must here.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at La Francesca at the beginning of our Italy vacation. We wanted to spend some time on the coast. The towns of Bonassola and Levanto are beautiful, quiet beach towns with plenty of great cafés! We stayed in one of the small, Apt As at La Francesca and it had a small balcony... More

This place is geared for Italian families on their vacations. For instance, they don't make up the rooms and you have to wash your dishes and take out the garbage to the dump before you leave. They change the sheets once a week. The place is in a nice location, very steep. There is a rocky beach at the bottom... More

I spent last weekend at La Francesca Villas & Resort, enjoying the perfect location (within walking distance from both Bonassola and Levanto) and the resort facilities; the view from the bungalow balcony is simply breathtaking, the sea id fantastic and the restaurant serves a fine selection of fabulous local dishes. The service level was really high, expecially the kindness of... More

We went to stay here for two nights and we did not expect too much from it. This is not a five star resort but it is a really friendly happy and quiet place with great views and a really nice restaurant. Perhaps the beds could have been more comfortable but I would go back any time just to sit... More

La Francesca My wife and I and our two year old daughter stayed here at the start of August 2013. The place is, frankly, disappointing. "Resort" is stretching it. Instead, think "campsite" but with villas instead of caravans and you're much closer. It'd get a much better grade if they were more open about how basic it is but then... More

Before mention some dutiful clarifications and corrections , I would like to thank Andrew and Margaret of the long and detailed review, and their suggestions. in my opinion the most problems reported by them are due to incorrect information. Andrew and Margareth have not booked directly, but through an agency that evidently did not give all the necessary information To... More

As my wife was checking out upon the conclusion of what was a very unsatisfactory four day stay at La Francesca, she got the obligatory "how did you enjoy your visit" inquiry. In an attempt to find something positive to say about the experience, she replied that we enjoyed the walks into town. Ironically, she was asked if she would... More
