Everything about the whole holiday was faultless. Booking and responses from Riccardo and Holiday Lettings were perfect, as describe. Riccardo was the perfect host, collecting us from the airport, telling us of the great places to go and with the simple day to day details too. Location is perfect for hopping on a regional train to Genova one direction (20 minutes) or to coastal Camogli then Santa Margherita (15-20 minutes) in the other direction, which is then a short local ferry hop to the gorgeous Portofino, all of which can be visited by the local ferry from just outside the accommodation. If you like stunning coastal scenery, little inlets of beaches for memorable swims in the calm sea, sea kayaking, wandering the coastal path for evening walks, visiting real cafes and pizzerias/focacherias, great seafood, and my favourite - gellatarias..... then this is the place to visit. Liguria is a real place of real Italians going about their regular lives, not overcrowded by visitors but welcoming of anybody who can say Buon Giorno and willing to accept a slower pace of life. I'm not going to spoil you with a long list of things to do of which there are many, but the joy is to see for yourself, explore and find the magic for some unforgettable memories. Ciao

We stayed at Fishermans House Genoa just before Christmas for four nights. Two couples (related), no children, pets or car. The owner/host Riccardo is wonderful, he replied to my queries (in English) and provided us with great information on the area. The apartment is just as described on line and the photos are accurate, if anything the spaces are bigger in real life than in photo form. You could not want for anything extra. Upon arrival Riccardo met us and helped with getting the luggage upstairs, there are two flights of steep stairs (good for toning the thighs!). He then gave us a brief tour of the apartment and instructions on the basics needed to be comfortable. Riccardo also has a wealth of information on the area and can help you with things to see and do. During our stay we ate in the local restaurants and cooked some meals at the apartment. All the facilities were great and we could not fault the place. Highly recommended.
