La Francesca is a small holiday village rather than a hotel, and the appartments have a cooking area and good storage. You definitely need a car to get there as it's several kilometres outside Levanto down a minor road. The swimming pool is only open in the afternoon so we didn't try it, but it looked good. The restaurant is down near the sea and we didn't fancy driving down the winding road to it, or walking back up the steep hill after dark, so we didn't try it either. It's a lovely area, and we could see the sea from the terrace of our appartment.
Take your own matches for the gas and batteries for the television remote control (though I believe you can get these from reception when it's open). It's certainly not the newest holiday village we've stayed and the play areas and tennis courts needed a bit of maintenance. Opening times of the facilities were inconvenient too, but it was only May so we were not surprised.
To be away from big cities
Size of the rest-room
We were traveling with our dog & it was the perfect place for her to explore but more importantly for us to explore Cinque Terre! We were there off-season (late November) & had the place almost to ourselves.
Most of all we liked the position of our apartment, the sea view .. the staff was good. I hope someone is taking care of the vats that are there, They are really nice we really hope someone is feeding them.
Everything was ok.
Paradise found! The view from the rooms and the well maintained property made our stay a pleasure! The convenience store had everything we needed. Location perfect for day trips to Cinque Terre, Portofino and Pisa.
We did not realize swimming pool would be closed, and that there would be extra charges for tennis. Some of the problems with the room (broken bathroom fan and lights, lack of access to internet - after we paid for it) were not attended to despite two requests.
The facilities are terrible. Make sure you arrive with a lot of food and other supplies as the market on-site is pathetic and the restaurant and other facilities are open at obscure hours. The place seems like a school camp location - it's a waste of an amazing view/ location - it should be re-vamped and made a luxury resort.
The hotel was in a quiet location between Bonassola and Levanto. It was easy to access both villages and the Cinque Terre.
There were holes in the sheets, the room was dusty, no way of lighting the gas cooker (until we borrowed a lighter from the very helpful bar man). Although there was a bar, restaurant and shop, they were rarely open. The tennis court was covered in weeds and in a poor state. The front door did not fit and rattled, the acommodation was tired and in need of modernisation. Although the place was almost empty we were still put in a ground floor cabin which had a limited view. If you are thinking of staying, it is more like camping. This was very expensive for what we got.
The view was awesome! It was quiet and convenient to get to Cinque Terre by car. There is a playground near the cafe bar which is really nice break for the parents and kids.
The bed in the bedroom was really hard and so were the pillows. The sofa beds were softer and more comfortable.
The village is situated on the coast, in a real pine forest.The sea view is breathtaking. Excellent food & wine at the restaurant.
The village is 4 km far from Levanto on the up&down coast road-you can't walk on it. There's no bus, you have to take a taxi that costs 20 euro, to get to the train station. The sanitary's were from the '70, not suitable for a 4star residence.
perfect location, great nature
The view from the balcony is fantastic especially at sunset
some of the should be available recreational facilities are either closed or not functioning properly during the period. rooms are too small. TV screen is a 14 inch and is very uncomfortable to watch. Towels are not approriately sized.no beach towels are available. room cleaning is not available. Access to the hotel is very difficult( narrow roads). It is too dangerous to walk to any of the nearby towns due to the lack of walking trails which compels you to use the car and face the associated severe parking shoratages in all those towns.
calm, very good view and refreshing air
insufficient equipment and old furniture.
This is not a hotel/resort it's a property with basic bungalows. It's definately not 4star accomadtion as advertised.
Owners were rude when we bought to their attention that toilet would not flush, shower leaked and there were no basics provided to wash up dishes un kitchette. This was not a 4 star property.
The setting among the pine trees and with the fantastic view from the balcony was amazing. We enjoyed swimming at the small beach, diving from the stones out in the water.
Walking down to the beach is quite tough-it's steep! Not easy for a family with small children.
Definitely a room with a view. Directly located at the sea (gorgeous sunsets). Private beach. Close to Cinqe Terre and Levanto.
The cottages realy need some maintenance, esspecialy the bathroom.
