Hello there! The Space is a great value for your stay in Camogli, especially for families! Close to the beach (7 minutes on foot) and public transport (20 meters from the bus stop and five minutes to the train station on foot). No kitchen, but there is a fridge, a microwave grill combo and an espresso machine for your use. Know that there may be lessons during the day, but not where you'll be sleeping and not in your room!
It is now possible to add a unique experience to your stay!
Walking distance to the train station (Camogli - san Fruttuoso) and the stony beach on the beautiful Gulf of Paradise, the center is located in a residential area on the square of a beautiful Sanctuary dedicated to Maria. This renovated open space has a great shower and A/C
There is free parking available on the street and the center is 50 meters from the bus stop.
I have now changed the bed situation! I have a very comfortable futon on a wooden bed frame for two people. There is a double futon style bed and two singles. The last two beds are air mattresses for up to six people total (I prefer families to 6 adults). I provide clean sheets and blankets and towels. In the summer, most of the courses are usually suspended so you will probably have The Space to yourselves, but sometimes I do have an English or music lesson in the adjacent room. Lessons can be anytime from 8:30 am until 10 pm, so think about that before you book. However, please know, that you are free to stay in the center while I'm teaching.
You'll probably want to spend your evenings enjoying the lovely village, but if you're too tired to go out, there are plenty of English books and videos in the center.
The price is meant for up to two people per night which includes a continental breakfast. (I'm a great baker, btw!) There's an extra fee of €10 per person for up to 6 guests total.
Please write and ask if you need any further information.
I provide beds, sheets, towels and a lovely breakfast. There is a wide selection of books and dvd's that you can use during your stay. There is also a piano and guitar that love to be played. You'll have you own keys so you can come and go as you please.
I live nearby (3 minutes), but do not sleep in the center. I bring you breakfast and love to chat. I have plenty of maps and info about things to do and see in the area, but I also try to respect every guest's need for silence and alone time!
Camogli is only 20 minutes to either Genova or Portofino, and it is about 90 minutes from the Cinque Terre.
So many people have mentioned that they would love a lesson during their stay. Well, this year you can. I have teamed up with my artist friend, Elena, to offer you some fantastic experiences during your stay in the area (whether or not you stay at my place!)
Use my instruments: are you far away from your beloved instrument? Don't worry you can use mine. I have an old piano, several guitars and even a flute.

If you choose an experience, we can either add it to the cost of your stay, or pay separately using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
Please don't take the white towels to the beach. Use the beach towels I provide for you.
I know things get broken, just let me know and we'll work it out.
The water heater is a bit small only 30 liters, so if you have a big group, wait 15-20 before the third person takes a shower!
No smoking or pets are allowed at The Space. You never know these days if the next person is allergic!
Of course, please leave The Space as nice as you find it.
I'm a friendly and outgoing host and a great baker! I love the outdoor lifestyle here in Italy. I teach English and Music to children and adults in the center "The Space, a place to share, grow and be!" where you'll be staying. There are many courses at the center, but it's always free at the weekends during the school year and for longer stays in the summertime. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have!
