Right from the moment of booking Valeria was so welcoming and helpful. As others have said she offered to pick us up from the station which was a great start. I had looked at endless properties in the CT area and without knowing the towns I was hopeful that I had made the right choice, not to stay in the five towns of the Cinque Terre. I am so glad I chose Levanto and La Dolce Vita, I can't think of anything negative to say. The accommodation was perfect, a lovely room furnished in typical fashion, very homely and comfortable overlooking the street which wasn't a problem as it's very quiet. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice with some lovely sweet treats baked each day by Valeria. And all served in the gorgeous breakfast room. Valeria was a constant source of information and tips for our day trips, she's a local so knows what she is talking about. She has on hand lots of brochures, timetables etc. and has very good English so a great source of local knowledge. We loved Levanto itself, lots of bars, cafes, shops and we really enjoyed watching the locals enjoying the late afternoon/early evening in the centre of town. It has a wonderful community spirit and doesn't feel too touristy. It isn't too big so easy to walk around and very handy to Monterosso and the rest of CT. Take Valeria's advice about restaurants, we went to one of her recommendations twice in 3 nights and we probably wouldn't have found it on our own. Three nights was perfect but I would love to have stayed longer and would certainly return.
