Monterosso al Mare house description

Lo Sceriffo (The Sheriff) is a charming little house ideally located in a private park, with ancient trees and the typical Mediterranean Flora, next to a private pine forest.
The park surrounds the old Villa where the Nobel Prize winner for Literature poet Eugenio Montale used to live and write.
Lo Sceriffo is located in the middle of this park, in its own beautiful garden; it is peaceful and quiet, yet only 100 metres from the sea.
The house has just been renovated; part of the pictures you see were taken before the renovations and as soon as we have the new ones they will be updated.
The house is cozy and nicely decorated and the renovations respected the style and mood of the house, making it more comfortable, with air conditioning and high quality finishing.
There is a living room with a wide window with a view on the garden, a little kitchen with everything you need, two double bedrooms, one single bedroom and two bathrooms, both with shower. One of the bathrooms is en-suite in the main bedroom. The bedrooms have single beds that can be arranged as king beds, so there are different sleeping options.
In the front garden there is a beautiful deck with a sunshade and tables and chairs where you can relax and enjoy the silence and the charme of the place.
In the back garden there's a laundry and storage room.
You can feel out of this world, but the shops and the restaurants are just 200 metres from the house.
It is a poetic and unique place.
