We only stayed one night and were very impressed with the apartment. It was very clean and spacious and well equipped. The balcony was a highlight with a picture postcard view of the port and banana lounges to relax in and take it all in. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Car park underneath is a bonus and access... More

We stayed for 3 nights in apartment 4 with 2 young children. The apartment was very spacious, clean and the kitchen well equipped. Lovely terrace area, which was nice for the children. The views were amazing and we spent alot of time in the evening sitting outside enjoying the view and the changing sky. Parking was a blessing as it... More

Me, my wife and child had stayed 2 nights in here. The room was really clean and the available pans and kitchen saved us some money on dinner/breakfast (and if you came to Portovenere you know what I mean). The owner is fantastic, it can entertain you for hours telling about his past, somebody is going to make a book... More

We stayed for 12 nights in appartment number 4. It was a great experience. When we arrived we walked up the stairs to the owners' appartment. The lady does not speak any English but her husband does a little. Both very kind. They showed us the appartment, which is very nice. Terrace facing the sea (and sun from about 10am... More

Our two night stay at Residence i Gabbiani was one of the highlights of our three week driving trip. The access is simple...drive into Porto Venere on the one way road and follow it as it starts back up the hill. It has free parking in the garage beneath the apartments. The view is nothing short of spectacular! One can... More

The Residence i Gabbiani is a joy where we had a 2 room flat with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Poets on the Ligurian Sea in a sturdy family-run hotel with underground parking! Parking is especially important in Portovenere and to find a hotel with free parking is an anamoly here, the gateway to the Cinque Terre. The lovely... More

We stayed for two nights in a large modern apartment with fully equipped kitchen/breakfast nook, living room, bedroom, and extremely large patio overlooking beautiful Portovenere. Car parking is free in the garage (1.25 to 1.75 euro per hour on the streets). Driving is simple - you come in on a one-way road to the center and leave town on a... More

Our stay (3 nights) at Residence I Gabbiani is one of the most memorable ones in our 3-week trip in France and Italy. It's certainly difficult to find the place, especially at night and more particularly for Canadians not used to driving in Italy, but once you get there, you'll forget about that! Portovenere is magnificent and the panoramic view... More

My girlfriend and I, overall enjoyed the stay at the Residence that has nice a nice location, parking garage and a nice terrace. Few points to be aware: the walk to town is not 5-10 minutes, but is a good 20-25 minutes with a good speed. If you stay more than one night there is no bed making, no change... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in May 2011 and can't imagine that anywhere in Portovenere could be better. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the bathroom and kitchen areas look brand new and (best of all) the view from our (large) balcony was stunning! The residence is a 5-10 minute uphill walk from the centre of the... More
