We stayed for 3 nights at the Residence I Gabbiani and found the treatment received from Mr Giovanni and Mrs. Maria absolutely amazing, something that you simply does not expect the present times. They ways are from the good times where people developed a real relationship with their customers. They were extremely kind and accommodating and my family and I...

The residence is located on a hill just a short walk from a great beach, a bit away from the port. The main port is about a 15 minute walk. A perfect location for swimming, as the water was not full of pollution. The room had a beautiful balcony with lounge chairs and a table. Although this town is not...

The view from our balcony was amazing and the room had everything you need if you want to stay in and cook or entertain. It also had a washing machine and clothes lines to clean your clothes if you have been traveling for a long time and need to clean your clothes. The walk to downtown is a little long...

I chose to stay in Portovenere as it had the ferry connections to Cinque terre and from the pictures, Residence Gabbiani seemed like a decent choice. Maria has a well kept accommodation with a well equipped kitchen and a wonderful terrace overlooking the harbour/jetty. It was located on an uphill slope but it wasn't an issue for us as we...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the end of September and wish we could have stayed longer! Well equipped apartment with a fabulous view of Porto Venere.

Immaculate Euro appointments. Aesthetics are wonderful. CLEAN bathrooms, full showers, HOT water on demand. Impressive location. 10/10 w/o reproach. Great for business minded travelers that don't need 5000sq ft of room to visit but relax. Awesome!

This is a lovely modern apartment, with good cooking facilities, lounge area, and bedroom facing onto a beautiful balcony with great views over 'gulf of poets'. Undercover parking and close to bus stop. Some beaches nearby or a nice 1km walk into Portovenere. Wonderful old couple run the residence - 8 apartments in all (?) They speak hardly a word...

Our family of 4 (kids ages 10 & 12) recently spent 3 nights at Residence I Gabbiani.
