Cinque Terre Delight is an elegant farmhouse that dominates the bay of Monterosso in the heart of the Cinque Terre. Perched on the hillside, about 2-1/2 miles above the town, this magnificently restored property offers fantastic views and is perfect for larger groups wishing to explore the Cinque Terre. There are 6 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms. The name Cinque Terre refers to five self-contained villages which seem to dramatically cling to the very edge of cliffs. These cliffs offer distinct terraced vineyards that produce a local dry white wine. Make sure to explore the local villages or take a boat or train ride to La Spezia-Genova. The farmhouse itself dates back as far as the year 1200 and was originally a hermitage. It was later turned into a parsonage and upon request the small antique chapel that is attached may be visited. It may also be rented for fantastic weddings where an elegant reception may be set up in the garden area. The open surroundings and large size of this villa make it a perfect vacation spot for large family gatherings or for a group of friends. With a good variety of indoor and outdoor living spaces even large groups can either congregate or enjoy privacy and relaxation. Included is a parking space in Monterosso(something very hard to come by), which is only a five minute ride. For those who don't want to drive, the bus stop is only 700 yards away, just in front of a local restaurant. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful outdoor garden that is equipped with high quality outdoor furniture. The internal courtyard is also a special place for enjoying outdoor dinners. The house has been carefully and tastefully furnished with marble bathrooms, rare antique pieces, and fancy fabrics. The views from almost every room will take your breath away. This is definitely a high quality location which is truly hard to come across in the Cinque Terre area. Upon request, special dinners may be arranged in the garden by a local chef at a reasonable price.
