There are 2 main reasons to stay in this apartment - Volastra is a beautiful base away from all the tourist craze of the other towns but centrally located for hiking, and the wonderful family of Marco, Marta, and Serena who really make sure your stay is a special one. Excursions on their small fishing boat and up the mountains into the vineyards, tastings of their own wines, and general friendliness and helpfulness turned a great trip into an amazing one.
The 2-bedroom (but no living room or sofa) apartment is spacious, very clean, and well-equipped with a washing machine and large bathroom, and the lovely private garden across the street makes up for the lack of views and relative darkness of the interior spaces, which if you spend most of your time outside, and you should, is not a problem. The shuttle bus to Manarola is very convenient, and although the last bus up the mountain is at 7:30pm, the family will drive you back afterwards so that dinner in Manarola is possible. The walk from Volastra to Corniglia was my favorite one of area. Overall I would highly recommend staying in Volastra and in the Il Carugio apartment.
