The flat is situated near the train station and all the restaurants and the beach. The terrace is very nice ans the view fantastic. The kitchen is well equipped. The apartment is not very big but it's still ok for 4 peoples.
Without being dirty, it was not very clean neither. There was dust and a smell of moisture.The 2nd bedroom is really small and windowless.
What has been the most disturbing is the communication with the landlord or the person who deals with the rental. Even though we had communicated the approximate time of arrival, there was nobody on the spot. It was a visitor who rented another flat who told us where we could find the key. Also, it is not obvious to find the right door, since the door numbers are only indicated on a fence at the bottom of a staircase that leads to several doors. On our terrace, there were two doors. We assumed that it was the first. It was the right door. About fifteen minutes later, someone came and seemed surprised to find us there. In fact, the communication was not very effective and the arrival informations not very clear.
Finally, it's a decent place but not an apartment I would say charming. It lacks a touch of charm, in decoration and maintenance.
Even though we were a little disappointed by the general appearance on arriving, we were still satisfied throughout our stay in Monterosso.
