I chose to stay in Portovenere as it had the ferry connections to Cinque terre and from the pictures, Residence Gabbiani seemed like a decent choice. Maria has a well kept accommodation with a well equipped kitchen and a wonderful terrace overlooking the harbour/jetty. It was located on an uphill slope but it wasn't an issue for us as we... More

Ferry to Cinque de Terre easy to get to. this place is close to the Cinque but quieter and just as lovely. We did not drive and took the bus from La spechia. the bus... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the end of September and wish we could have stayed longer! Well equipped apartment with a fabulous view of Porto Venere. The older Italian couple who run the place are so cute; despite our language barrier we were able to get by fine; they even stored our backpacks at their residence when... More

Immaculate Euro appointments. Aesthetics are wonderful. CLEAN bathrooms, full showers, HOT water on demand. Impressive location. 10/10 w/o reproach. Great for business minded travelers that don't need 5000sq ft of room to visit but relax. Awesome!

This is a lovely modern apartment, with good cooking facilities, lounge area, and bedroom facing onto a beautiful balcony with great views over 'gulf of poets'. Undercover parking and close to bus stop. Some beaches nearby or a nice 1km walk into Portovenere. Wonderful old couple run the residence - 8 apartments in all (?) They speak hardly a word... More

Our family of 4 (kids ages 10 & 12) recently spent 3 nights at Residence I Gabbiani. The owners are very lovely people even though we didn't speak Italien we tried our best to communicate and they gave us a bottle of wine and some treats for the kids. The apartment was actually 2 adjoining rooms with a front seaside... More

I had a room without see view, so it wasn't so great at rooms with it. It was possible to use doors between rooms to go... More

We caught the bus from La Spezia to Porto Venere. Next time we know that the bus passes the apartments but still the walk was worth it. The view in the morning from our balcony was magic and we loved the walk in to the centre of town each day. The apartment was spacious, clean and most comfortable. We thoroughly... More
