Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a comfortable place for the whole family, this unique property is perfect for everyone and a great home base for all your travels.

Situated in an exclusive gated enclave of private homes you are assured quiet and privacy, yet you are only steps away, 5 to 10 minutes by foot, from all the best restaurants, shops, wine and coffee bars and the most beautiful beach literally right across the private road. The Monterosso train station is a 5 minute walk away, the historical center of Monterosso a pleasant 10 minute walk down the seaside road.

The grounds are lovely, full of a wide variety of mature trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers.

There is a private gated terrace with lots of furnishings perfect for dining al fresco or just relaxing while enjoying the view of the sea and the other villages of the 5 Terre.

Casa Chiara features three bedrooms, providing ideal lodging for couples traveling together, families or small groups.

The bedrooms have several options for sleeping arrangements, the large 'suite' bedroom features a queen size bed and a full size sofa bed, the other two bedrooms have 2 single beds that all can be easily converted to queen size beds.

The bathrooms are clean and modern, one features a full size bathtub, the other a shower.

There is a samll but fully equipped kitchen with plenty of cooking supplies and appliances to make a snack or a full meal in the privacy of your own home.

Casa Chiara is a wonderful option to a hotel stay, you can have a real

HOME to stay and enjoy all the 5 Terre has to offer- the beautiful coastline with pristine waters, the charming villages, the world famous hiking paths, the freshest seafood, award winning wines and of course our friendly people!

Monterosso al Mare property

  • 4 of 5

Daniella was a great host. She met us at the train station, walked us to the apartment and made some great recommendations to us. The apartment was clean. The only negative was the internet didn't work.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write, you were delightful guests. As to the internet, i was not made aware of any problem until your departure. As a reminder to all guests, please inform us of any problems immediately -when they occur, DURING your stay, not when you are leaving so it can be remedied. A simple restart of the modem and all is well with the internet!

Fantastic Views and Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the charming Casa Chiara; the location couldn't be better-- a 2 minute walk to the beach and secluded from the crowds of the Cinque Terre. The sound of the sea lulled us to sleep every night. Daniella was very helpful with many great recommendations of things to do and see off the beaten path. We had a wonderful time- thank you!

Our family stayed in this beautiful villa with an amazing view. We enjoyed the view every morning on the terrace while we had breakfast. This was everything and more. If we are lucky enough to come to Monterosso again I would stay here again. Thank you for the great hospitality.

Great location, very private and still very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, I think the location so close to the beach that our girls (ages 8, 11, 12) could go by themselfs up and down was geat and at the same time it's very private and quite.... This is really a unique thing in the very busy Cinque Terre.... The department is nicely furnished, very much in line with the style of the house, we loved the high seelings and enyojed a lot the terrace. Gabriella and her husband were great, all worked out perfect, can defenetly recomend this place....

Another wonderful stay in this beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this beautiful villa in Monterosso. Again it did not disappoint. As usual, Daniella, the property manager was accommodating and always promptly available to answer any questions or solve any problems. The villa is older and historic with the all the ambiance and charm we expected. It is in a beautiful park-like setting. The kitchen is tiny but well-equipped. The location and views are spectacular. It is about 3-4 blocks from the train station which made it convenient to take day trips to Florence, Lucca and Pisa.
