Villa Cinque Terre

Seaside Hotel

     

Character: Whimsical details at this waterfront boutique hotel.
Advantages: Simply put, this is the nicest hotel in the Cinque Terre.
Location: In Monterosso al Mare, right in front of the little fishing harbor and an equipped beach. The train station and the rest of the town are ten minutes' walk away, as are the famous trails that thousands of visitors come to hike. Two excellent restaurants are around the corner, and best of all, you can drive right up to the hotel without having to face the parking problems mentioned below.

We have been looking for this little gem for years! Until we found it, we had several reasons for discouraging our readers from actually staying in the Five Towns - Corniglia, Manarola, Monterosso al Mare, Riomaggiore and Vernazza: hard to get there, traffic jams and parking nightmares and, above all, woefully overpriced and below standard hotels. But the 11 guestrooms in this charming villa are a wonderful exception. Simple yet inviting and comfortable, newly refurbished, they offer views of the spectacular coast and the sea, or of the quiet private garden. The owners are kind and enthusiastic, and eager to share their little slice of heaven with the lucky travelers who manage to reserve their stay here.
