Charming, comfortable and casual, La Ranganella, or the Little Green Frog, is a family owned beachside home in Monterosso al Mare, one of the beautiful seaside villages of the famous 5 Terre.

Located in the newer part of the village called Fegina, this home is situated in a park-like setting in a quiet area of private homes directly across the street from the sea. Although literally across the street from the beach, there is no sea view.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a fun family vacation, La Raganella is the perfect location. Conveniently located to all the best beaches, restaurants, wine and coffee bars, shops, the train station and the historical center, all are just minutes away by foot.


The home features two levels joined by an inner spiral staircase as well as an outer staircase. The lower floor has one bedroom with double size bed with en suite full bathroom with shower. Also on the ground level is a combined living and dining area, with direct access to the private sunny front yard, and a full sized, well equipped kitchen, with additional space for laundry and storage.

The upper floor is reached by using the inner sprial staircase, or the outside stiarway for additional convenience and privacy. This floor features two bedrooms- one with fixed queen size bed, the other with two twin beds that can also be easily converted to queen size. Both have french doors leading to the balcony and beautiful view of the garden below. There is plenty of room on the balcony to sit and relax. Also on the upper floor is a full bathroom with bathtub/shower.

The outside area is a rare find in the 5 terre. It is spacious with a private front yard, that is completely gated, secure and only for the use of this property. The garden hosts an assortment of olive, lemon, fig trees and flowers and herbs. There is plenty of outdoor furniture- tables, chairs, benches. Also lots of room for the kids or small pets to play in a secure gated area.

The location of La Raganella is both convenient yet private and quiet, The Monterosso train station is a 5 minute walk down the beach if you come by train.

Secure parking is available at several locations nearby for a daily fee if you come by car.

On arrival uou will be given a personal welcome, with full orientation of the area and a local contact for anything you need.

Enjoy your vacation to the 5 terre in a real HOME with all the privacy, space, comfort, and convenient location.

Charming beachside apartment with lovely private courtyard

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth met us from the train and took us straight to the property. It was so charming and comfortable! She spent a good deal of time helping to orient us to areas to eat, hike, shop, enjoy wine or sit at the beach! We had a lovely stay, only down was some stormy weather! The facilities were fantastic!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed w my husband and two kids. It was amazing! The location could not be more perfect....right next to the beach! The house was stocked w all the essentials and was decorated so cute. We stayed in Italy for a month and were so pleased with this choice and leg. The host is so sweet and professional. There for anything you need. I would highly recommend this for families or anyone for that matter. We truly loved it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. :)

Quiet, charming, great beach access, live like a local

  • 5 of 5

Daniella, our property manager, was terrific. Great communication pre visit and during. She gave us great tips for dining and sightseeing . The house was super charming. There was plenty of room- well-equipped, beautiful garden, everything we needed was there. We've rented a lot through VRBO and this was a top-notch experience. Monterosso is very livable, we wish we had stayed longer! This apt is nice because it's very central but yet out of the fray of the train station tourist congestion . I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute and convenient house to explore the Cinque area. Daniella met us at the train station and walked us to the house pointing out favorite bakery and eateries. The court yard is wonderful to sit in any time of the day. .

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our time at this darling home in Monterosso. We had plenty of room as the home is rather large. The location is perfect - just across the street from a lovely beach. Daniella was super helpful and she felt like a friend immediately upon meeting her. She gave lots of pointers and tips about the 5 Terre and Monterosso, which were helpful during g our stay. Can't wait to return!
