Stayed 1 night in May 2014 as part of a wider 51 day trip through parts of Europe. Paid €120 pn for a 1 bedroom apartment, sleeps 4 (2 bathrooms). Room 107 & 108 which join together to make a 1 bedroom apartment with an extra large fold out bed (comes down from wall) in kitchen area. This was fine... 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

We stayed for 3 nights in apartment 3 and our friends in apartment 4. The owners welcomed us with fresh, delicious figs that were the best we ever ate. The apartment was spacious with one of the best views in Portovenere. Our terrace had a patio set with umbrella and lounge chairs. Every day we came home with groceries and... More

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

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
