“A really relaxing weekend where we enjoyed a warm welcome in a lovely location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

This was our first visit to the area and what a gem we found at Apricus Locanda. A very attractive room thoughtfully prepared and with all you really need. The mini bar was stocked gratis with water, beer and soft drinks. There was open access to the dining area if you felt in need of a tea, coffee or hot chocolate at any time. Other reviews have mentioned the fantastic breakfast on offer! The pool area is compact but fine for the number of guests and beautifully positioned as long as you are ready for, and realise the benefits of, the climb up after your dip or sunbathe ! The owners have a new restaurant in the village which we found excellent and good value. Apricus Locanda is a place to visit in its own right and we would willingly have stayed on. For a longer holiday we would recommend you research, and have clear idea of what you want to do in the area, before you go.

This is truly the most charming, relaxing, impeccably kept B&B there is. My other half and I stayed for just two nights in May and it really wasn't long enough.
The room was beautifully decorated with crisp white bedding and antique furniture, and every view is stunning. Breakfast is fit for a King, with wonderful local produce, organic jams and fresh eggs.
The town of Apricale is small but perfectly formed, and we had a wonderful dinner just a few hundred meters from Apricus Locanda.
I cannot praise this B&B highly enough - it really is the prettiest place I have ever stayed. So romantic too! Thank you Jeanette for your wonderful hospitality, we will definitely be back one day!

We reserved only 3 days before our arrival for much-needed rest and relaxation. What a pleasant surprise: such a quiet location, outlook to nature, wonderful breakfast, attention to detail and spotless accommodations in a wonderful hilltown village!!! Jeanette is welcoming and creates a relaxed hospitality. We took hikes to neighboring villages and savored Rossese wine (the local production) with excellent meals in Apricale and nearby towns. The cool pool was just right after a long walk. Our three days / nights were the perfect combination of food/wine, exercise, scenery, local culture and sleep. Che piacere trovare un posto ideale all'ultimo momento! Ci torneremo senz'altro!

We stayed here for three nights. It was a wonderful introduction to the Ligurian area of Italy. Jenette is a wonderful host and nothing is too much. Our rooms were very clean and decorated beautifully. Wonderful views and the breakfast was tasty again with wonderful views. The pool was a bit cold for early June but it was a welcome area to sit by and have an afternoon doze. The Apricus is a short walk from town and we can recommend Osteria Apricus which is run by Jeanettes family - a great welcome and lively place to eat. We also can recommend the Billabong restaurant on the nearby beach.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony.

We stayed 2 nights at Apricus Locanda, which was the perfect introduction to the delights of Apricale. Our room was comfortable and tastefully appointed, with a lovely welcome from Jeanette on our arrival.
Breakfast on the terrace is not to be missed after a peaceful nights sleep in tranquil surroundings. The quality of the croissants and other fare on offer at breakfast was first class. We were fortunate enough to be moving on to Jeanette and Arturo's Townhouse, where we had a superb week of relaxation and soaking up the wonderful surroundings of Apricale.
We were also lucky enough to be invited to the opening of Apricus Osteria & Bar. A great bar in the perfect location for watching the sun go down, with lovely staff who will give you a super welcome and serve great, reasonably priced drinks and simple, we'll cooked food.
It was a real pleasure to visit Apricale, sample the Apricus brand, and meet Jeanette and Arturo, who are lovely, welcoming people who are committed to ensuring you have a wonderful stay.
A big thank you to Jeanette, Arturo, Ildu and Aldo for making our stay so special.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies or terraces are preferable

Jeanette made us feel very welcome, our room was extremely comfortable... and the breakfast delicious. We were returning to Apricale after a 35 year absence, and it's still just as picturesque and peaceful. Highly recommended.
