Dearest , now that the Bed and breakfast is closed until next April I miss very much my guests, and any message is so welcome!. I'm happy that you liked staying here, and I hope that also the other places, you went after, were agreable. The Piccola cat is still very nice, I think sometime she looks at me, wondering...

When I began researching the Cinque Terra area I was uncertain what region to use as our base. Trip Advisor led me to Villa Olimpo and we were very happy that it did. From Rapallo where Villa Olimpo is located, we were able to take the train to visit the Cinque Terra towns (40 min)and we also were able to...

Hello Alexandrina, thank you for the beautiful review, it is always a pleasure to be of some help. Now the roses in the garden are gone, but there are the agapanthus and also the asparagus, with its wonderful perfume, I'm sure you would love it. I wish you and Radu all the best! Marina

Villa Olimpo is situated on the hills above Rapallo. The views of the city and the bay are spectacular. The beauty is not limited to just the view of Rapallo, but the entire interior which has many beautiful pieces of furniture and paintings from Marina's grandfather who built Villa Olimpo. She took the time to explain to us some of...

Dear "Vigevano", I thank you very much for the rich review you made about Villa Olimpo. I think it is a little boring to write a review, so you were very generous! Not to talk about the wonderfull things you said! I still remember the photo of your trip around in Italy, of little girl L. and the Christmas bisquits...

What a fantastic start to our Italian Riviera trip. My wife and I stayed in the Portofino room- truly beautiful. The views from the private balcony are breath taking, and our hostess, Marina was a delight. The house itself has been in her family for generations, and has just the right amount of odeon amenities so it doesn't take away...

Thank you very much for your kind review! I think it is the first time Villa Olimpo gets two of that on the same days. I'm very happy you found the place beautiful (and the housekeeper agreable!). In the end I bought the pedometer, but I couldn't understand how it works, so I got rid of it :-( . You...

What a surprise to find a review so may months after you staying here. What made you remember villa Olimpo? The beginning of the Summer? The wish to find other beautiful spots where to look for fishes or starfishes? You remember that? How nice of you to remember, thank you so much!

Sometimes you wonder if reviews are an accurate guide, but in this case they are all true! Just back from a wonderful six-night stay at Villa Olimpo, and it was a delight. If we'd realised just how perfect it would be we would have booked for longer. Marina's house and hospitality will long be remembered. The house is beautiful, old...

Not for nothing is this place number one in tripadvisor. Every positive remark in the reviews is true. Even then it exceeded our expectations.
