    Great b&b but beware of the steps!

    Leo and Lou were really friendly, chatty and accommodating. They clearly go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The steps were a bit of a shock for us on arrival as I'm 6 months pregnant and the steps were a bit much with no railing, however, like the other reviews, the view was incredible. When we mentioned to Leo about the steps he did offer to pick me up after our day trips which was very nice of him but I didn't want to make a fuss! The room was really clean but we lacked privacy in the room we had as it opened out onto the terrace meaning the bathroom shutters remained closed for the duration of our stay making it very dark, and people sat on the bench directly outside of our bedroom window to get wifi and the view. There was no tea and coffee making facilities in our room, no full length mirror and no shelf in the shower for shampoo etc which is a little more difficult with a bump!! If we were to return, we would opt for different room despite the fact it probably has the best view! :-) My husband found the cats a bit much! This place is great if you want a quiet get away. It's seems like it attracts like-minded people, everyone was very friendly and polite. There was no TV in the room but plenty of books to read. We would recommend a drive to Sestre Levante for both evening and day. It's a 30 minute drive but well worth it. We also had a lovely lunch at Vera Napoli in Chiavari - definitely a must!

    Beautiful location, wonderful people!

    Leo and Lu will send you directions on how to get there... follow the directions! :) If you follow the gps you may have an unexpected adventure. The gps will get you there but you will go up the mountain side on a single lane road that isn't paved or much wider than your car (Leo and Lu are quite adept at this road). If you are in for a particular adventure, you may follow the gps and do this after a very heavy rain and the hard wash down the road. Whew! Anyhow, if you just follow Leo and Lu's directions instead of the gps you will have a lovely drive up the mountain side with very road friendly locals. Our experience was fantastic! Our hosts, Leo and Lu are wonderful, warm, friendly people with a great sense of humor. We also got to meet and chat with a family from Belgium and a friendly couple (congratulations on your journey to parenthood :) ) from Germany. The view of the valley and surrounding mountains is beautiful. The air is fresh and clean. The room we were in was immaculately clean, spacious by European standards, and did I mention the lovely view. We had many exciting and busy major cities on our trip and starting our morning with the delicious breakfasts (a fantastic dinner is often offered for a reasonable cost as well), the surrounding vineyards, and fireflies in the evenings was a very enjoyable break. Lu can tell you about things to see and do in the area as well as how to get there and the best places to park.

    Pros: We like the hospitality and easy sense of humor from Leo and Lu, the clean spacious room, the view of the valley, and walking through the vineyards.

    Location: Portofino is a short drive and if you park in a neighboring town a beautiful walk. Cinque Terre is a worth wile day trip Sea Kayak near Portofino!

    High Adventure

    Did not realize how scary the drive would be or how tough the climb up the steps would be, but once we arrived at the top, the view was amazing. The house is perched atop a hill surrounded by small farms. It's very quiet and peaceful but day trips tend to be difficult since the road up and down is difficult. Breakfast was great as long as you could keep the cats at bay. They steal food right from your plate.

    4/5 Good

      Good experience

      Great location and views. Tricky to get to. Leo was ill when we were there so his son deputised.

      Great place to stay

      Lu & Leo were friendly and welcoming and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.. Lovely fresh breakfasts and had two evening meals with them which were good too. Great place to 'chill'. Very nice outside area for eating/relaxing.
