Overview

Riomaggiore Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Blackberry Cottage is in a wonderful position on a hillside, about 450 ft above sea level, with a panoramic view of the Gulf of La Spezia, looking across to Lerici.

The dawn and sunrise are often a photographer’s dream !

The property is incorporated into an attractive terraced garden, entirely enclosed within stone walls. The situation is secluded without being isolated, as there are other houses out of sight at a lower level within 100 meters or so, with different access.

The cottage is surrounded by the green Mediterranean forest and it is connected to a network of walking paths, making it a perfect location for hiking-lovers.

The cottage is ideally located for those wanting to explore the neighborhoods: Cinque Terre, Portovenere, Lerici and Telaro are within easy reach by car. Portofino, Lucca, and Pisa are all about an hour away.

Pisa international airport, a Ryanair destination, is within an hour from the house.

The house sleeps up to eight – but two of the bedrooms have robust pine bunk beds, thus either suitable for one adult or two children in each room. These two rooms are on the first floor, where there is also a WC with hand basin. Both rooms have marvelous views over the Gulf. The master bedroom is on the ground floor, next to the bathroom (which was completely modernized for the 2006 season). This bedroom has definite charm and is another room with a fine view. It has a double bed. The final double bedroom is on the lower ground floor, with access to the garden via a French window.

The final room in the house incorporates, kitchen, dining area and a small sitting area next to an open fireplace. As has been mentioned, in summer (virtually) all meals are taken on the patio, so the lack of a proper sitting room is no drawback except when it rains. The kitchen area has been up-graded within the last three years

Our wonderful stay at Blackberry Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Stay in Blackberry Cottage was great! We were especially impressed with the beautiful garden with fresh herbs. The seaview was also amazing. The cottage is well equipped and gives a great possibility to explore Liguria. We especially enjoyed the Portovenere and the Cinque Terre. We highly recommend the Blackberry Cottage to everybody.

Familienurlaub in ruhiger Lage mit atemberaubenden Blick auf den Golf von La Sezia

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben den Urlaub (drei Erwachsene, drei Kinder) in diesem Ferienhaus sehr genossen. Besonders hervorzuheben ist der wunderschöne und sehr gepflegte Garten mit zahlreichen Terrassen und atemberaubenden Blick auf den Golf von La Spezia. Nach einem ggf. anstrengenden Besichtigungsprogramm in der einmalig schönen Umgebung (Cinque Terre, Lerici, Portovenere, Portofino, Lucca etc.) freut man sich darauf in das wunderschön gelegene und einmalig ruhige Ferienhaus zurückzukehren und dort den Nachmittag im Garten mit Blick auf das Meer ausklingen zu lassen. Bei Regen (den wir glücklicherweise nicht hatten) wäre die Wohnküche des Ferienhauses mit 6 Personen wohl etwas überbelegt.

Fazit: Einmalige Lage, wunderschöner Garten, atemberaubender Blick auf La Spezia und das Meer, bei Regenwetter ist die Wohnküche für sechs Personen wohl etwas eng.

Bei trockenem Wetter und angenehmen Temperaturen 5 Sterne (*****)
Bei Regenwetter und / oder kühlen Temperaturen 4 Sterne (****) wegen der für sechs Personen klein geschnittenen Wohnküche

Truly wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful week in the cottage. And the hosts added one of the major parts to this. The atmosphere of the place is fantastic and hosts' attitude towards the guests makes the surroundings even better. The one major disappointment was that we didn't have enough time to sunbathe on all of
the beautiful terraces. We really enjoyed our stay. Many thanks!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the blackberry cottage, it is fully equipped,very clean and has a very nice charm to it. Mostly we enjoyed the beautifully green well-kepped garden, full with flowers, and a view over the sea and harbour. Which made cooking at home a wonderful experience. It is a very peaceful place, from where there is a lots to discouver nearby. We loved the small fishing villages and beaches nearby. We can recommend to stay here with family, or friends, or just like the 2 of us, relaxing a bit before our wedding a few days later.

April Showers...

  • 4 of 5
While the weather was not quite as nice as we would have liked, Blackberry Cottage was just as it was described. The view is beautiful and the cottage quaint. Please note that it is a cottage, which meant that we spent a lot of time outdoors or sitting around the dining room table. As advertised, make sure that you have a car to get to the train station or grocery store. Also, the lower trails of Cinque Terre were closed and have been since 2012. I would advise making sure that they have reopened if this is where you interest lies. We still had a wonderful time and I would stay here again.

Great garden and views - good cooking facilities

> We (two couples) ate at nearby restaurants for lunch and cooked for dinner.
> Even the nearby restaurant (Il Paradiso del Golfo ) up the road, with a view and
> great seafood, was a hit. We ate there 3 times. Try their deep fried red fish and eat it whole.
> The cottage served us well. In the spring the flowers were in full bloom but
> the weather was a bit to chilly for our Hawaii friends to sit outside to eat
> on the glass table under the vines. Still they enjoyed the experience. The
> washing machine was a necessary thing for the 4 of us since we all traveled
> with few changes of clothes and just carryon luggage.
>
> My wife and I did the red (high) trail from Manarola to Corniglia. You
> decend on Corniglia and get a better view of it. We took the bus from
> Manarola to the upper trail head and that eliminated the climb up to the
> trail head. As of this writing (6/2012) the low, coastal trail was blocked
> by rockslides. They hope to clear everything by summer. We still walked to
> Vernazza from the parking lot to support the local restaurants and
> businesses.

Genoa was surprisingly interesting with its stately mansions. Long drive though. Portovenere has more of a history than Cinque Terre and it is right up the road from the property.
