Delightful stay in charming villa with fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 6 had a marvelous time in Cinque Terre and our host, Daniella was absolutely delightful to work with. Her communications were prompt and helpful from start to finish and we also found her comments/recommendations about places around the town itself (restaurants, stores, etc.) to be spot on! The villa met all of our needs, was in a great location, and was exactly as advertised on the website. We enjoyed the view from the terrace and definitely utilized the washing machine as our stay came halfway through our two week trip. There were 2 small items that prevent me from rating the villa as a 5 star experience and that is 1) the wifi issue that has been previously mentioned (I actually kind of liked that the kids kept getting cut off, but I needed it to confirm/communicate other parts of our journey so it was a bit challenging at times) and 2) as has been noted, the house doesn't have A/C and in order to keep cool enough at night, one needs to keep the windows open. Unfortunately, as is typical in Europe, there aren't any window screens and we all got snacked on fairly heavily by mosquitoes which left us itchy the remainder of our trip. Otherwise, the villa is wonderful, as is Daniella!

Beautiful Villa

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful old villa on a gorgeously landscaped property. And the location is excellent. Two things that prevent a 5-star rating. First and most important, the home does not have A/C. We were in Monterosso in the middle of June and even with the widows and doors open, the home got uncomfortably hot at times during the day and the evening. Second, the water from the tap is not drinkable. You will have to buy bottled water.

Lovely Oasis for seven gals !

  • 5 of 5

Months prior to our visit, I had emailed Daniella to find a villa large enough to sleep seven women. She recommended this villa, and it was perfect, as she said. Three of us shared the large master room- with its king sized bed and comfortable sleeper sofa. The others share the two twin rooms. All slept well. Loved the birds in the morning, but you may need ear plugs :).

We enjoyed the outside patio and twice cooked a light dinner which we ate at the large outdoor table. The small market at the foot of our hill was the place to buy delicious dinner supplies as well as wine. The bakery a few doors down, was our go to each morning to get sandwiches on homemade foccacia bread, for our daily hikes. Daniella met us at the train station and walked us to the villa, showing us these places and recommending others on the way.

After hiking most days we took a dip in the sea- a 3 min walk. It got festively crowded on the weekend!

The washing machine was MOST appreciated. Some of us had been travelling for two weeks before arriving. Clothes dried quite quickly on the rack outside!

One wrinkle was the finicky wifi -which Daniella, her husband and the owners struggled to make consistently work. I regret having to put them to this task- but we all depended on wifi for our US communications. They finally were successful and their efforts most appreciated!

The privacy, peace and comfort of this lovely setting was so appreciated at the end of a long hot day, hiking and exploring the crowded (but charming) villages of Cinque Terre!

Thank you Daniella !

Tips for hikers: 1-Look carefully at the topo map. Often the direction is easier one way than another. Often it is better to go south to north on the trail.

2-Take the train to Manarola, then shuttle to Volastra for a trek to Corniglia. You will bypass a horrendous climb. This was our most beautiful stretch!

Cozy, quiet apartment with great ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom, two bathroom apartment was so perfect for our group of 5 adults. We were in Monterosso for 4 nights and were pleased to be able to eat our breakfasts and most dinners in. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen (it was small but cute), the abundance of towels (even beach towels) and the comfy beds. The apartment is on the top floor of an old, historical villa situated at the far end of the town up a hill, which made it a little difficult to lug the suitcases up after the 5 minute walk from the train station but not a big deal for our fit group. The big plus is that it is away from the hustle bustle and noise at the center of town but within easy walking distance to everything, including the beach. It's furnishings had a lot of old world charm and it was immaculately clean when we arrived. There is a spectacular view of the sea from the terrace. Daniella and Piero, who manage the property, were most welcoming, very friendly, a wealth of information about the area and always available if there were any problems. We had no water one afternoon. The problem got resolved quickly. If we have a chance to return, we would definitely stay here again. The 5 of us all agree tha this was an absolutely wonderful experience.

Absolutely Amazing, Perfect Host and Rental Home!

  • 5 of 5

From our initial contact, Danila was the perfect host. Full of advice even before we arrived, arranging a driver for us from Venice right to our door in Monterosso. We needed medical care, and she had an MD there (arrived by bicycle!) upon our arrival. She even went and picked up our prescriptions.

The location and amenities were outstanding. Easy walk to town to closeby grocery,bakery, gelato, beach and picturesque trails. The view from the patio is the best in town. We arrived to fresh fruit, coffee, milk, and bottled water. Will definitely stay here again should we ever return.
