“Perfect stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Fabio is a really nice and friendly guy. We came to his house to make a trip to the villages - to walk through the Cinque Terre. Fabio gave us informations about trains, cities and so on.
Furthermore he has created a very helpful map of Levanto...so which restaurants are good, where the best beach are, how much several things cost... so we went to the "Le 3 Cantine" restaurant which is really good. You must taste the fish antipasti for 2 persons. This is absolutely enough :) You will get 20 different fish antipasti. Great!

The room is not big, but very nice and has a small balcony with a great view. Also the bathroom is small, but enough for 2 persons. Everything is clean.

So it was a perfect stay in Fabio's house. Thanks to him.

We absolutely loved this place and Fabio. Although it wasnt located in the Cinque Terre, it was the next northern village. Very cute and quaint- great view of the mountains and was only a five minute car ride from the village center. Fabio is beyond helpful- transporting his guests to and from the town, making reservations, giving recommendations for places to eat, things to do, etc. I would suggest this place to anyone who wants to experience the Cinque without having to fall into the tourist drop. The B & B is in a beautiful area and typical Ligurian style with fresh grapes, fig trees right off your balcony. The place is very clean, neat and homey with comfortable beds and large showers/bathrooms. Thank you Fabio for everything, we hope to return soon!

We had a wonderful stay. Fabio provides a wonderful place of tranquility away from the busy touristy places. The B&B is situated in a typical Ligurian village and it is perfect - clean, beautifully decorated and the setting is awesome. Fabio shares generously about the area and we had a lovely time sharing his homemade pesto in his garden overlooking the forest. I will try your recipe when we get home! Thank you Fabio for making our stay in Cinque Terre so special.

The stay in the B&B was better than I could ever wish for. To start, he was really quick to respond my inquiries and I arrived in the same day I booked (last minute trip!). Fabio picked me up in the station and showed me around Levanto. The place is AMAZING. No words to describe the beauty of the area and the place itself. All very clean and organized. We enjoyed together one of the paths to Le Cinque Terre and had dinner, he was the best host!! Thank you so much Fabio!

The holidays in altra vista B&B have been peaceful and relaxing. The view from the room is beautiful and Fabio is a really nice guy. The food was amazing also during the meal prepared by Fabio, you must try typical ligurian dishes with Pasta al pesto, salume, formaggi, dolce... ! For people that want to discover Paradise of Cinque Terre, Fabio's home is really the best place to go ! Thanks again to Fabio for this

Altravista is a very pleasant place where you can spend a couple of days or a long vacation. It is near to see -10 minutes from Levanto's beach- and a good starting point towards "Cinque Terre" (if you like trekking, it is an ideal camp!).
Fabio, the guest, is really cute and he can tell you which the best places in Levanto are for dinner or just for taking a rest after a walking day, at the same time he can suggest you the most interesting trekking paths or Cinque Terre events.
..in conclusion it is a very good place where you can disconnect from city-life

In September, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying with Altra Vista in their beautiful new villa. The villa is clean, modern and very comfortable. There is a terrific view of Levanto and surrounding area. The villa is a short easy walk from both the town center and the train station. "Fabio" could not have been more hospitable and helpful. It is the ideal choice for a beach stay, or vists to Cinque Terre.
