Take advantage of our opportunities
Absolutely loved our stay at Claudio & Roberta's place! We arrived at the train station and were approached by Claudio who helped us find the apartment and explained where things were along the way. Once we got there explained everything about the apartment and how check out worked. Their place was perfect for the three of us for a weekend, a small kitchen and bathroom/shower but larger living area and bedroom. The place was very clean and we couldn't have been happier! Only a few flights of stairs to get up to the apartment which gets easier once you don't have luggage with you! The main street and the castle are just a 2 minute walk away!
Es hermoso todo ! Muy recomendado
Echoing previous reviews, in a nutshell: great location, simple, nice balcony for sunset views. There were plenty of blankets and heat (if needed) for cooler evening temperatures. Claudio was waiting for us on arrival despite our 30-min train delay leading to a quick and easy check-in. We visited in low season so we appreciated his info and recommendations as to which shops were open in town and where to eat.
Claudio est venu nous accueillir très courtoisement à la gare. La chambre est très bien située et très propre. Le balcon offre une jolie vue agréable pour prendre l'apéro. La salle de bain est moderne et très appropriée. Le wi-fi était efficace, avec un routeur (ou on booster) dans la chambre..
This was the absolute most perfect place for us to stay. So clean and close to everything. They were more than accommodating and kind to us. We would for sure stay with them again. Lovely people and lovely place!! Great views too 🙂
Loved loved loved everything about this place. It was so clean and perfect for us. Thank you so much for having us. We loved and we will be back again.
“Amazing! Great location close to everything including shops, train and beach all within a few of minutes. Our host waited for us at the train station and walked us up to the apartment which only took about a 5mintue walk. Amazing sunset views over the ocean and harbour. It was great having a kitchen to cook meals with the food we bought from the small grocery stores in the main town. A very comfortable, clean apartment in a quiet location. We will definitely be going back to the beautiful cinque terre coast!!”
It was hard to leave our apartment because the views were so wonderful...or perhaps we were still recovering from bringing our luggage up the many steps. I highly recommend hiring someone...as we did when we left...Claudio called for us, but there are signs around town for this service also. Granted we did have heavy luggage, as we had been traveling awhile. I am not criticizing the steps, as they added to the ambiance. The apartment was just as it was described, with plenty of space to spread out. We ate all our meals out because of the close proximity to the main part of town, but the kitchen was quite complete. Claudio let us keep our luggage at his residence after check out time so that we could continue to explore this most extraordinary coastal area. The main trail was closed, but we had plenty of walking by going up the mountain and coming down on the other side of town. The apartment has a somewhat Spartan décor, but would still highly recommend it and we would return there ourselves.
Some information of the place
A local car rental service with driver (NCC) is available; they can come and take you virtually around everywhere in Italy. Contact them for information, availability and prices.
Our advice is to travel lightly whenever possible. Better two small suitcases than a big one. If your stay is short, bring with you only the necessary for your stay; you can leave the rest of the luggage at the deposit located in front of the train station.
Travel comfortable, wear appropriate shoes. At 5 Terre there are a few stretches of flat road, the rest is a set of stairs, climbs and descents. Better face them with proper footwear.
Our apartments are found in Riomaggiore, the first fraction of Cinque Terre that one finds moving from La Spezia towards the West.
