Where we are

Five villages form a territory that from centuries is known with the name of 'Cinque Terre'. They are set in a vast inlet in the extremity of Oriental Liguria.

From East to West you'll find: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Monterosso, for its extension, number of inhabitants and offered services, is the most important village. It has a beautiful beach, the only one in the "Cinque Terre".

We strongly recommend using the train to get to Cinque Terre, the roads are small and parking is limited. Monterosso is accessible by train from all over Europe. The main cities nearby are Genoa in the West (80 Km.) and La Spezia in the East (20 Km). Arriving by train, walk out the train station and turn left to the old town. It is just a few minutes walk.

You can get to Monterosso by car through the A12 Genoa-Livorno highway, exit at Carrodano, continue till Levanto which will take you to Monterosso. Carrodano to Monterosso is a 20km narrow road. PARKING IS DIFFICULT. At the edge of the old town (centro storico), two minutes walk from our place, there is a toll parking building for about 100 cars.

If you have heavy luggage, a TAXI will take you to destination. This service is available at the following phone numbers: +393356165845 - +393356165842 - +393356280933 - +393355873722.

The nearest airports of Genoa and Pisa are distant about 100km. Daily trips from Monterosso to Pisa, Florence, Portofino, Genoa are possible.

Hiking, swimming, snorkelling are the main attractions. The weather is pleasant and warm from early March to late October. We suggest you to spend more days in this area, to enjoy your vacations and bring home unforgettable memories.

The House

Our world

It is a 16th century ligurian house completely restored. On the ground floor there are 4 double rooms, reserved for our guests. The other 2 floors are reserved for the landlords.

The 4 double rooms, each with a private bathroom, are spacious and provided with every comfort (sat TV, hairdryer, individual heating, ceiling fan, air conditioning). Free WIFI.

Please, consider that our rooms DO NOT HAVE SEA VIEW NOR BALCONIES.

We are in the old town of Monterosso (two minutes walk to the beach) and our rooms are situated at the ground floor. Three of them look out the pedestrian street surrounding the house, the fourth one, an inner courtyard. Paintings by local well known artists decorate the walls. Refined bed & table linen add an elegant touch. The wooden ceilings, stuccoes and some stone walls, will certainly fascinate you. Breakfast is usually served in the garden (or in your room in case of bad weather).
SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED in the premises and in the garden. Thanks a lot for your cooperation.
