My husband & I stayed 4 nights in this secluded 2 bedroom cum 2 bathroom cottage in early May 2019. The way up is an exhilarating drive for anyone looking for something more than usual country driving. Roberto & Marina received us so kindly. It was already 7.30pm and Marina had just got back from work. They learnt we did not have an earlier opportunity to stock up on food to last our period of stay. Without hesitation, Marina offered and insisted on going with us back down the mountain to Le Terrazze supermarket in the main town to buy groceries. On another day, Marina drove us to the train station in order that we take the train to visit the villages of the beautiful Cinque Terre, and even fetched us at the same spot to bring us back to the cottage. Such considerate and wonderful hosts they both were.
As for the property, it is a good sized stone/wood cottage built by Roberto a few years ago. Marina dressed it up lovingly. From the first step into the place, one could feel and appreciate the care and pride of the owners in dressing it up. The rooms including the bathrooms were of very good size. Very well apportioned and fitted out. The beds were full-sized and pillows / mattresses were firm and very comfortable. There was plenty of storage space for clothes and belongings, as well as pantry area for groceries. The weather had turned unexpectedly cold, but there was more than adequate heating in the bath and bedrooms. Roberto even helped set up a good fire to keep us extra warm. There were plenty of blankets available, even fleece covers that kept the cold weather at bay.
Set in a little village about 200m above sea level, we were thrilled and pleased to have stayed 4 nights and experience it fully. If ever we are in this region, we would definitely want to come back again, and meet up with our very kind hosts. This is a home away from home.
What a tremendous experience for my family provided by the most gracious hosts you could imagine. The property is the most quiet tranquil setting with stunning sea views. Everything you could want provided and excellent restaurant a three minute walk. Rosella and Roberto could not be nicer or more gracious hosts and I thank you both so very much!!! My third trip to Italy and because of the tremendous hospitality my best. Hope to come back.
