Residence Ca' Bottrigo

Overall we were very happy with our stay in Ca' Bottrigo. We booked a 2-bed apartment which was actually a one-bed and a studio combined. The studio (5M) was on the first floor and had wonderful views over the lake; the adjoining one-bed apartment (5A) was fine but faced the back of the buildi... ng with a disappointing/non-existent view and the kitchen/living area was small particularly as we were also using it as a sleeping area. There are 10 units in the building and there were a mixture of families staying there; couples of varying ages, some with babies, not many older children. The pool was often empty, even in August, and there were plenty of sun-loungers, tables and chairs. Parking can be a little 'tight' but manageable. The 15 minute walk in to Bardolino is relatively flat and pleasant but there is no street lighting on the road by Ca'Bottrigo so a torch was useful. We missed the fact there wasn't any air-conditioning although the local agents provided us with one fan which was invaluable. Being on the first floor we also opened the windows wide at night as there was usually a good breeze coming down from the hill - this might not have been an option on the ground floor. No cleaning was provided in our apartment during our two-week stay which surprised us - also we had hired towels and sheets but these were not changed which was disappointing. WiFi was excellent throughout our stay.Read more

Villa I Poggioli

From the moment she instantly answered our emailed questions before our stay, we knew Rosella would be an excellent host. She communicated with us a few days before our reservation started, greeted us on arrival with brochures on the region and unobtrusively periodically during the week asked if we ... needed any help or more information. Checking out was simple and Rossella gave us a warm goodbye.

Our apartment was exactly as described on the website. It was sparkling clean and fully equipped. The large terrace at the rear of the house was a Garden of Eden, with our own private spot just outside our door.

Villa I Poggioli is in our experience the perfect location to explore Bocca di Magra on foot and further away by car. The villa is a short walk to the harbor and beach but on a quiet residential street. Carrara is a short drive into Tuscany and La Spezia's main train station is also an easy drive for a visit to Cinque Terre.

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at I Poggioli, and highly recommend that anyone considering a holiday in the region take advantage of Rossella's hospitality.

Villa Franca

Villa Franca is in a lovely location with fantastic views. We were very disappointed with the restaurant on site as it stated on their website that they specialise in fish dishes and did pizza and meat dishes this was not true they literally did fish dishes only. There was also tables by the pool ... so because the restaurant did not open in the day we decided on the days that we stayed in and hung around the pool that we would take our lunch we did not make any mess and put all our rubbish in the bin provided after the second time of doing this we noticed signs were put up on the tables that no food was allowed by the pool this was also another disappointment. There was also no sun beds at pool only chairs which made it very uncomfortable to sun bathe we had to buy our own.

The apartment was 3 bedroom which was very nice but did need some improvements there was also no air conditioning or even any sort of fans it was very uncomfortable in the evening when it was time for bed and we did not get much sleep.

So even though it was a beautiful location we would not return to villa Franca as it stands now.

Villaggio Lido

The accommodation is simple, quiet (most times - only sometimes other visitors at the Villagio Lido do not allways obey the rules), but good - close to the beach (app. 500 m) and near to restaurants and a few shops. Very good and big pool - beach access is included.

Hotel La Giada del Mesco

Clean and pretty place, not very modern but charming and lovely!
Great terrace and pool area! Stunning view!!

B&B Donna Regina

A great stay at this family home in the heart of Napoli. Signora Gabrielle welcomed us into her house with great hospitality. Previously a convent, the home is now owned by a family who filled the high ceiling passages of the apartment with a selection of beautiful artwork (most are for sale). The b... reakfast (especially the omelettes) prepared by Signora Gabrielle herself was very special - and made us wish we had stayed another evening and booked a dinner with the lady of the house as well. Next time definitely. Will come again!Read more

Due Relais

Due Relais is the perfect location if you're looking for a quite place away from the crazy tourist places at the Amalfi coast. Rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast was nice and the host was perfect and full of useful tips for daytrips.
We enjoyed every minute!

Hotel Leopold

On our second day we had hundreds of ants marching through our room and even in our suitcases! We notified the owner of this problem and all she said was: yes I know, we can't do anything about it because we are in the nature and this happens all the time.
After I threatened to go to another h
... otel because I didn't want to sleep in between the insects, she finally asked someone to clean our room and spray some anti-insect stuff. This only partly solved the problem, since the ants were coming from the electricity openings in the wall.
We decided to stay the remaining nights because it was too much of a hazzle to find another hotel in August that was close to the ocean.

There were some pluses: the view, pool and the fact that it is close by the cinque terre cities.
However, I wouldn't go there with kids. They are very strict when it comes to showering before you enter the pool, do not move the beds etc.

So when you're considering booking this hotel, I would definitely take this into account.
