Roberta and David were the most fantastic hosts we've ever had. We felt like they had opened their home to us. My wife and I are both vegan and they accommodated our needs without any problem. Fresh fruit, breads, home made jams, exceptional coffee. The house is located in a spot of perfection. Views are to die for. We spent one day just hanging out at the house, reading, relaxing, enjoying the day. Getting into town was very easy and there were places to eat nearby as well. We will be back, if not for the tourism, then just to see Roberta and David again.

Caring hosts. Pretty area, but Without a car it’s not very feasible as the bus schedules are confusing, user-unfriendly and unreliable. The Rooms were okay; at best average. Breakfast tended to be average and the same day after day. If you can’t eat eggs, or don’t eat meat, there’s not much else. If you do choose to stay, the restaurant around the corner is good.

Response from Davide G, Proprietario at Agriturismo Locanda del Papa
Responded Jan 9, 2019
Dear Deb, thanks a lot for your review and for being our guest! I would like to reply to a couple of things about your review, especially regarding the pubblic transport and our breakfast, hoping it will be helpful for the next guests. Our house is an Agriturismo, Agriturismo it mean farmhouse and, like every farmhouse, we are located in countryside, a bit inland. We stay just 5 km from La Spezia train station( 10 min by car and 15 min by bus) and I don't know what went wrong with the bus because there is a bus around every hour running near my house, for example buses number 15 and 16( but not only these buses) and La Spezia public transport it work quite fine and normally very timely. About our breakfast, reading your review seems that we only serve eggs and meat but we aren't serving just eggs and meat for our breakfast ( by the way, we serve fresh eggs from our chickens cup and a handcrafted salami that we buy from a 70 yrs old Butcher's shop located 2 km away) we also serve croissants , homemade jam ( my wife make the jam) and butter, fresh bread and homemade focaccia (a traditional crushed bread of our region with oil and vegetables), orange juice, cheese( that we buy from a local cheese factory), yogurt, honey and most of the times we also have available fresh fruits ( just during the summer). Thanks so much again Deb and all th best!!! David

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of September while visiting the Cinque Terre. The Cinque Terre are worth visiting although still very busy at this time of year but the best thing of all is coming home to the Locanda del Papa. David and Roberta are incredibly welcoming and helpful and the accomodation simple but very clean and comfortable with the wonderful breakfasts that other reviewers have already described. We took the trail from the Locanda to Riomaggiore using maps and advice from David and it was an amazing walk where we met virtually no-one else. It took just over two and a half hours in the heat and our legs certainly felt the effects of the exercise for the next couple of days but it was absolutely worth it. We would love to stay here again one day.

My wife picked this spot located in the hills above La Spezia. We stayed three nights. Each day we liked it more, both for the location, which soothed our nerves after day trips to the swarming Portovenere and Cinque Terre, and for the cordial company of the hosts Davide and Roberta. Far from the madding crowd, it is a 15-minute bus ride into town, after which you can walk to the train station or ferry and be transported to the area's many tourist destinations. At least three restaurants are located within easy walking distance, so we usually returned and dined locally in the evening. We very much enjoyed the greenery, the birds, and part of the trail that leads to the coast. Next time we want to hike all the way.
