Monterosso Al Mare: Charming house with peaceful garden in private park

Bedrooms 3
Space 807 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Lo Sceriffo (The Sheriff) is a charming house ideally located, in the middle of a private park, next to a private pine forest, less than 100 metres from the sea. It is set in a beautiful garden, very peaceful, where you feel out of the world, but the beaches and the shops are just 150 metres from the house. The house is cosy and nicely decorated: it is a unique place.

Everything plus more than we thought....

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It is a super cute home with a beach type feel with the rooms & walls all painted & decorated in aqua and white. Everything you need is on site, from washer, cookware, outside tables and chairs, to the fabulous location. The a/c was wonderful! Everything was cute, functional, with the most lovely garden area with shaded table. My husband and I traveled with a 5 and 9 year old. They loved it! The house is private in this gated community but just off the road at the beach. Super easy walk to everything in the town center, from train, to markets to restaurants to beach to marina. There was even a market day with crafts and fresh food. This has been one of our favorite house rentals. There was one incident with the hot water, but the property manager was kind, prompt, and the repair was made quickly. She is so kind and professional. The owner responds quickly and professionally. We have recommended this house to everyone we know who might go. This town was so easy with kids. No major hills, steps, etc. to get around easily. It's not the same with other Cinque Terra towns. We caught lightening bugs around the amazing grounds at night, played cards in the gardens, picked lemons and my kids made lemonade, etc. The development has such lovely houses on each turn of the trail, yet so private. We were sad to leave! The beach is the best of the five for beach time. Easy chair and umbrella rentals, grab lunch, grab a beer, great swimming each day! There is a private parking area for our car, which isn't easy to find. We walked the rest of the week. The house has books, games and with all the outside time, we never even watched TV. Thanks for a fabulous time! God has blessed us greatly to have such wonderful memories in such a lovely place.

Excellent location and amazingly secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Lo Sceriffo was a perfect getaway for me and my friends. We stayed a week and never felt bored. We enjoyed the free beach which was a five minute walk away almost every morning and evening. In the mornings, we had the beach almost to ourselves. Took walks to old town for shopping and eating and hiked to the convent for spectacular views. We spent a day visiting the other Cinque Terre villages by boat and even got to experience fireworks during Vernazza's feast day. It was magical. Barbara and Karina made sure we had everything we needed. It was sheer bliss. Highly recommended.

Lovely cottage, well situated!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a trip to Italy with friends, intending to get some exercise in a beautiful place. Our plans worked out beautifully. Barbara was very accommodating, although we never met her! The property manager, Karina, was delightful and responsive. Yes, there are steps and hills to climb to get to Lo Sceriffo, but that's part of the allure. Quiet. Clean. Perfect.

Lo Sceriffo in Monterosso

  • 5 of 5

Lo Sceriffo is nestled in the hillside, charming, private, comfortably functional and well located. We were two couples sharing it for one week and totally enjoyed it.

Lovely homely property close to the centre but away from the noise and crowds

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, quiet and characterful property with parking and own beautiful private garden. Perfect in that it is just outside the 'no-car zone' so you don't have to struggle with your suitcases (although there are 31steps up from the parking area) but it is also very close to the sea and shops. Highly recommended!

Fegina (Monterosso)
Car: not necessary

by train - 400 metres from the railway station.

You can come by car (with the motorway Genova-La Spezia: exit Carrodano) but if you're staying at lo Sceriffo you don't need a car and you can easily move around walking or by train, if you want to visit the other 5 Terre.

Monterosso is one of the favourite spots of international tourism. Besides the charm of the location, the beautiful sea and beaches and the Marine Natural Park, there are many places where you can eat and drink and in the summertime they organize music events and different kinds of entertainment. Even if there are many restaurants only few are really good: we suggest Barabba in White for the pizza and Miky in Fegina, Moretto and Oscar in the old village, and La Tortuga, halfway between Fegina and the Old Village.
