We booked a 17-day trip all throughout Europe. This two day stay at Cinque Terra was amongst our favorite of all the places we visited. Cristina was very communicative, very hospitable, and her home was perfect for what we needed. There were four of us and it was big enough to accommodate us. The location is convenient to Riomaggiora and the train station. There are two ways to get here, one is to walk up a pretty long ramp and then down a couple flights of stairs. The other is straight up for five flights of stairs and it is a little steep. My parents struggled a little bit getting up and down but they are in their sixties. My wife and I being much younger didn't have any issue going up and down.
The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and the view was beautiful. There are two bay doors that open up right to the ocean and the breeze blew right through the apartment. We loved listening to the ocean at night lapping against the Rocks. Waking up to a blue sky and water as far as you can see makes this location incredible.
We would come back and stay here in a heartbeat. We felt we could have easily spent a week there and just soaked in the Italian ambience. Can't wait to go back and will definitely look to this location to make that happen.
Cristina was very knowledgeable about the train system, restaurants to check check out, and other small details that most people might miss. Very pleased with our choice to stay here.
