We spend a wonderful week at La Francesca. It was very quite, which was nice, but for our teenage girls one week with such tranquility was enough :). Wi-Fi was good/acceptable. Nice pool area. Nice but very small (and boring...) beach. What we missed the most was a beach-bar, or that the wonderful restaurant they have near the beach was... More

We loved our stay, beautiful view and a nice walk to bonasola and Lavento. I only came across families from Italy which we really liked. It was really hard to find though and definitely not ideal for travellers without a car. We had to walk up a dirt track up stairs and then up the hill to the top where... More

The resort is located on a nice hill between Bonassola and Levanto, in a oasis of peace and silent. The private beach is small and cute, with clean water. We were located on the top of the resort: we had a beautiful view on the Levanto gulf, however, we were quite far from the restaurant and the beach (15 minutes).... More

I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Francesca. We stayed two nights in a two bedroom villa located in the middle of the resort. Firstly the resort itself is beautiful and the grounds are rustic but well kept. The whole resort is pretty steep so you have to be in good health to walk down and... More

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
