Description of the Portovenere vacation apartment rental
Casa Bella is located in the charming fisherman’s village of Portovenere, one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the Italian Riviera considered by UNESCO a world hertitage site and by New York Times one of the top 40 places to visit in the world! Just south of the CinqueTerre villages, Portovenere is situated on a small peninsula that wades out into the waters of the Mediterranean Sea and into the Poet’s Gulf. Ferries frequently depart April-October almost hourly for the CinqueTerre and other fascinating local villages.

Casa Bella is a comfortable 2 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with a private parking garage and a lovely terrace with soaring sea views where guests enjoy a good glass of local white wine while enjoying the views. The apartment is located just outside the historical center in a modern building on the second floor.

Upon entering the apartment, to the right is the living/dining room area where there is a dining table that seats up to 6 and the living room which consists of a comfortable sofa, two chairs and a flat screen tv. This entire area opens up to the terrace and therefor also to the wonderful views which can also be seen directly from the living room area.

To the left of the entrance is the small but fully equipped kitchen which was recently completely remodelled. The kitchen has all modern stainless steel appliances along with a microwave,a toaster and coffee maker. Just off the kitchen to the left is the double bedroom where there are sliding doors seperating it from the living room area. Here there are two single beds which can also be made together for couples upon request.

Just down the hall is the bathroom which has a shower and a washing machine and the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and bunk beds for two extra sleeping spaces (mostly meant for children)and also has great sea views.

In the apartment, there is a helpful guestbook with lots of good suggestions in regards to restuarants,places to visit and helpful local information. Casa Bella has central heating and AC along with a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. The apartment is well equipped with dishwasher,washing machine,hairdryer,toaster, microwave,Sat TV and an internet device which up to 5 computers can connect in wi fi.

Note: This property is not adapt for anyone with walking dificulites of any sort. There is a steep hill of about 200 yards to reach the apartment building from the historical center which can be difficult.

Area Info
While in Portovenere, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the typical village lifestyle where most locals tend to take it pretty easy.

An early morning swim under the St.Peter’s church and breakfast at one of the local bars is a good way to start to the day. After that, a nice hike over on the Palmaria Island which is just in front of Portovenere or in one of the CinqueTerre villages and then in the afternoon a good drink for happy hour before a great meal in one of the local seafood restuarants where muscles and fresh fish are the specialty!

Ferries also take guests to many wonderful villages like Lerici,Tellaro etc and by car Lucca,Pisa and Florence are an easy drive.

It's a hard life but someone has got to do it!
