“We spent a great holiday at Michael and Ari's apartment in Pegli, The views from the apartment are lovely out to sea and the location is fantastic, being only a ten minute walk from the train station. The train service is very good and brought us to Genoa, Portofino and numerous pretty coastal villages down the Ligurian Coast, including an amazing visit to Cinque Terre. We left the car parked up and walked easily all around Pegli which has lots of lovely resatuarants and, seaside bars. We also spent a lovely afternoon in the gardens of the Villa Durazzo-Pallavicini in Pegli which had some fabulous views over the town and coastline. Local beaches were perfect for a swim after a long day. Michael and Arianna were always on the end of the phone for any assistance as well as Arianna's parents who gave us a warm welcome and were on-hand if we needed anything.”
