The residence is located on a hill just a short walk from a great beach, a bit away from the port. The main port is about a 15 minute walk. A perfect location for swimming, as the water was not full of pollution. The room had a beautiful balcony with lounge chairs and a table. Although this town is not... More

It also had a washing machine and clothes lines to clean your clothes if you have been traveling for a long time and need to clean your clothes. The walk to downtown is a little long... More

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

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'.
