I spend a lot of time for sports... soccer and sail are my favourite!
Like a REAL Italian man, I love to cook...and eat italian food!!
I love to meet new people!!!!
Posto meraviglioso a pochi minuti di macchina da La Spezia, immerso nella quiete assoluta e con una vista spettacolare. La stanza è molto carina, pulita e curata nei minimi dettagli. Alessandro è davvero un host fantastico, alla mano e molto disponibile! Ci ha messo subito a nostro agio e ha reso il nostro week end molto piacevole. Se si è alla ricerca di un posto tranquillo da cui raggiungere in poco tempo Portovenere, Lerici e le 5 Terre questo è senz'altro il posto ideale!
Our experience with Alessandro was very positive. He was very welcoming and keen to give us advice on place to visit in the neighbourhood or nice addresses to go for dinner. It was good to get this advice from a local who knows the area.
The appartment was nice, and with magnificent views. The place was still close to La Spezia city center and well-connected by bus.
My friend and I had a wonderful stay with Allesandro's place. He was a very hospitable and friendly host, and we are so glad we had an opportunity to meet him. He went above and beyond his role as a host by picking us up from the station and inviting us to join him and his friends for a small dinner party, which was a lot of fun. The room itself was lovely, spacious and clean with a private bathroom. The view from the terrace, where you can enjoy breakfast, is absolutely stunning! The place is a bit of an uphill trek from La Spezia town but can be easily accessed by bus or cab. I would definitely recommend Allesandro's place if visiting Cinque Terre!
Excellent stay with high feel-at-home impression.
Simply the best, kindest and warmest host I've ever met. After a while on that beautiful mountain and getting to know La Spezia I felt like moving there, too.
The room was perfect, breakfast, too.
I can only recommend to go!
This place is lovely. So peaceful. The view is ....breathtaking! Our stay with Alessandro was wonderful. I really cannot (email hidden)! His heart is huge! He has a great sense of humor, he fixes delicious pasta and the best (!) bruschetta! I would recommend everyone to stay with him.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
What should we write about our staying in Alessandro's place what has not been mentioned before by former guests and by guests who will arrive in the future? It is all true: The beautiful house with the fantastic view from the terrace; the lovely Italian breakfast with fresh foccacia with olive oil and rosemarin, the cookies, tea and coffee with hot milk; the world famous mussels with pasta; the home made cherry liquor; the wine which was offered during dinner; the good old Panda, the perfect clean appartment with fine bed en cute bathroom. It all was great, great, great!
And like to most other guests, it also applies to us:
it was Alessandro himself who makes the difference to that all.
What an absolute great host he is! Very sympatic, respectful, polite, helpfull, and this all in a very natural way. We love his personality and he is so funny! With a little bit of nostalgia we look back to the conversations and dinners we had on his terrace. Alessandro is a passionate teller and is very good informed and interested in the italian history. It all felt so good en familiair, a little bit like a friendship.Thats why we strongly recommend to stay with Alessandro for a while! You will not regret it!
And it goes without saying: we will certainly go back when we travel to Italy again.

My mother and I wanted to spend a day at Cinque Terre and decided to stay in La Spezia for the night. Alessandro's place is amazing, and has a gorgeous view -even better than the pictures. So the place itself -as well as Alessandro and Martina- were great. However, we were disappointed by the fact that there was no wifi, and no decent breakfast as mentionned in the description. We still had a good time in La Spezia and enjoyed our stay. Thanks Alessandro !
Premiers essais sur Airbnb, non la dernière. ;-)
Très agréable séjour.
Alessandro is very friendly, gentle, and lively person and on the same time polite and respectful and like to understand the rules of the visited city...moreover is a perfect guest very clean and quiet!
Also is special guest, because tried many different typical and "special" Palermo's food!
I hope to see you again! (website hidden) vediamo!
Alessandro was a very pleasant guest. Very open, easy and fun to be with. We had a good time with him. Hope he is coming back next year :)
Alessandro è mio nipote, è un ragazzo molto preciso, simpatico, volenteroso e capace. Gli piace conoscere gente nuova e fare amicizia, è inoltre molto disponibile la sua casa è splendida collocata in una posizione sopra la città strepitosa dalla quale si ammira tutto il golfo di La Spezia. Pesona affidabile che può dare molti consigli, visitate tranquillamente la sua casa e non ve ne pentirete!!!
I met Alessandro while travelling in Italy in spring of 2013, and I ended up spending several weeks in La Spezia. Any guest can see how much he loves his Airbnb because he always goes the extra mile to ensure his guests have a comfortable and wonderful stay. He is an outgoing and kind person who is always full of helpful advice on all aspects of your vacation, whether it's where to eat, what to see, or how to do things like a real Italian. Alessandro speaks Italian, French, and English fluently, and the fact that he taught himself English after opening his Airbnb speaks of his determination and dedication to being an outstanding host.
As I got to know Alessandro I saw that he has a true love of life that is contagious. When you are around him you can't help but be inspired by his passion, his energy, and his optimism. He also has a great sense of humour and the rare type of magnetic personality that has those around him hanging on his every word.
For me, Alessandro took what was a great vacation and made it outstanding. I miss him dearly and I will never be able to think about Italy without thinking of him.
I'm Mattia, Alessandro's brother. It might seem obvious if I talk well about him: we are brothers! Therefore I'll tell you just one thing: the way he treats his guests teaches me how to deal with people. Amazing gift from God!! Have a nice stay to his house...
Je suis Mattia, le frère d'Alessandro. Il pourrait sembler insensé si je vous parlerais bien de lui: nous sommes frères! C'est pour ça que je vous dis une seule chose: la façon dont il traite ses clients m'einsegne comment traiter avec les gens. Incroyable don de Dieu! Ayez un séjour agréable dans sa maison ...
Conosco Alessandro da molti anni. E' una persona molto simpatica e cordiale; e' anche un ottimo cuoco e conoscitore di vini; ama la bella musica e la sua terra. Abbiamo trascorso diverse serate a chiaccherare davanti ad un buon bicchiere di vino, ammirando lo splendido panorama che è possibile ammirare dalla casa presso la quale riceve i suoi ospiti. Consiglio Alessandro agli altri membri di Airbnb perchè è assolutamente serio ed affidabile e sicuramente lascerà agli altri un ottimo ricordo di sè. Infatti non si limiterà ad offrire ospitalità, ma sarà in grado di far vivere appieno le bellezze del territorio.
