The Residence i Gabbiani is a joy where we had a 2 room flat with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Poets on the Ligurian Sea in a sturdy family-run hotel with underground parking! Parking is especially important in Portovenere and to find a hotel with free parking is an anamoly here, the gateway to the Cinque Terre. The lovely... More

We stayed for two nights in a large modern apartment with fully equipped kitchen/breakfast nook, living room, bedroom, and extremely large patio overlooking beautiful Portovenere. Car parking is free in the garage (1.25 to 1.75 euro per hour on the streets). Driving is simple - you come in on a one-way road to the center and leave town on a... More

Our stay (3 nights) at Residence I Gabbiani is one of the most memorable ones in our 3-week trip in France and Italy. It's certainly difficult to find the place, especially at night and more particularly for Canadians not used to driving in Italy, but once you get there, you'll forget about that! Portovenere is magnificent and the panoramic view... More

My girlfriend and I, overall enjoyed the stay at the Residence that has nice a nice location, parking garage and a nice terrace. Few points to be aware: the walk to town is not 5-10 minutes, but is a good 20-25 minutes with a good speed. If you stay more than one night there is no bed making, no change... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in May 2011 and can't imagine that anywhere in Portovenere could be better. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the bathroom and kitchen areas look brand new and (best of all) the view from our (large) balcony was stunning! The residence is a 5-10 minute uphill walk from the centre of the... More

Portovenere is just stunning, picture postcard Italy. Residence Gabbiani is very nice and well located an easy 10 minute walk to the centre with small children in tow. The views from the appartment were fantastic and the parking a great bonus. The beds were comfy and the appartement very clean. Excellent shower, plenty of hot water. My only complaint is... More

Although it was a little hard to find, just keep following the signs for "Portovenere". Once you arrive at the apartments on the coast, find the intercom and call as instructed to get your keys. If you have a car, this place has a private garage - a major plus as parking can be hard to come by during the... More
