“Lessons learned”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I am glad that I waited to write this review after my month stay. Many of my initial concerns were eliminated once I realized that is how it is done in Italy. The apartment is like what is shown in pictures. Very roomy and beautiful views. The apartment doesn't have air and it was quite warm so I purchased 2 fans for 25 euros each. The alottted bath towels were 4 per room for a month. I did a lot of laundry because with the heat you needed to take 2 showers a day. The wasn't machine broke the first week. I called Anna and she had a new one delivered in days. Since I was there for 30 days I also purchased 2 beach chairs and beach towels. In the USA beach rentals usually have these items. Once again a learning curve.
The apartment is well situated however it was quite noisy with the windows open. Levanto is a dog friendly community. There was a lot of barking, morning, noon, and night.
I tried not to bother Anna, but the few tones I called she took care of the problem. We took many days trips but were always happy to get back home to Sunflower.

A beautiful and centrally located apartment in Levanto.
Less than 10minute walk to train station and very close to many bars, restaurants and shopping.
Very well equipped with pots pans plates etc.
Large bedrooms and bathrooms. High ceilings, airy and big windows.
For me the most breathtaking thing was the view from all of the rooms in the apartment.
No WiFi, but really not a problem as widely available in the town (Salty Dog bar just next door is an internet cafe)
Felt very comfortable, safe and at home here.

“Spacious apartment in Levanto”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This apartment was exactly as described, large rooms with high ceilings, plenty of space. Kitchen had plenty of pots and crockery should you feel the need to cook, as a large range style cooker with five burners would have coped easily. The apartment is on the 5th floor but a lift is available. the apartment is located centrally, so 10 minutes from the train station and just a few minutes stroll to the many piazza's. Only down side was no wifi, but plenty of bars offered free wifi and there is an Internet cafe 5 minutes walk away.

Flat Sunflower in the center of Levanto near Cinque Terre is a wonderful location in the center of the town. Everything is very close by - the local people, all kinds of shops, bars, and the beach. It is on the fifth floor (there is an elevator) of clean big house. It is not noisy. You can enjoy a wonderful view to the north. We will try to return soon.
