“We loved this apartment and would rent it again.”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights in August. It was perfect for us. It was my husband, our two teenage daughters and our dog. The apartment was very clean and updated. The balcony was small, but big enough. It looked out over the town of Manarola and the ocean. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

“Good 2 bedroom Apartment in Cinque Terre”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

. It isn't easy to find a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment around the Cinque Terre for a group of friends. This apartment was comfortable, light & airy & gave us the room & the privacy that we were looking for. It's a bit of a climb up the steep narrow streets & has quite a few stairs on the way, but the views are great from the small balcony.
The apartment has a large combined dining, kitchen, lounge area which faces the view out across Manarola & the sea. The bedrooms & the bathrooms are to the back of the apartment.
One of the bedrooms has a window but very little room for storage. The second bedroom has no window but there is hanging space for your clothes. The bathroom which is off this bedroom is tiny & very tricky to manouvre around. The main bathroom is larger & has a washing machine tucked away in a cupboard. It would have been good to have some instructions on using the washing machine.The kitchen had the basic utensils but it took us a little while to work out that there was a switch that we needed to turn on above the sink to work some of the electrical appliances & lights
We booked the apartment through Arbaspaa & they were very good to deal with. They were always very quick to reply to my questions throughout the booking process & once we were there, they were always on hand to offer advice & directions regarding hikes, restaurants etc. They even organized an electrician to fix a dodgy power point in the kitchen on a Sunday.
Manarola is a lovely little town with a good selection of restaurants & a couple of grocery stores. We visited in October & we were glad that it was a bit later in the season. The weather was quite pleasant & there weren't as many tourists. I can imagine that the summer months must be very hot & very crowded in the Cinque Terre.
We did a number of hikes around the towns & we mostly caught the train to & from the other towns, although there is a ferry which is available & it is a fun way to get from town to town! Just be aware that the ferry can't dock in Manarola if the sea isn't calm. If there is a bit of a swell it is too dangerous for the ferry to dock & let off & pick up passengers due to the proximity to rocks. You will then need to either walk out of town or catch the train. This is not the case in most of the other towns where it is easier for the ferry to dock if there is a bit of a swell. Just something to keep in mind if you are wishing to use the ferry for transportation from town to town during your stay.
Also the grocery stores have different opening & closing times, so be sure to check from day to day. It would be a nuisance to arrive back to town after a day out to find that there is nowhere open to get bread, milk etc for the next day's breakfast.

“Beautiful View, Well Appointed Apartment high on a hill!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Great apartment overlooking the beautiful Italian coastline in the quaint town of Manarola. Contemporary furnishings, with all you need for a relaxing stay.The view from the small balcony is beautiful. Bathroom off of one bedroom is extremely small and has no place to put toiletries. Also wall of glass seperating kitchen/living area from bedroom, makes it difficult to sleep as light and noise comes blarring through. Town is lovely with many restaurants to choose from. Stayed for 4 nights and moved on to Tuscany.

“Beautiful clean apartment with amazing view.”

This was our best accommodation in Italy and much better than I expected. There are 2 well sized bedrooms with clean modern bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen and sitting area. The kitchen facilities are excellent and the apartments decor is lovely. There is a small balcony if you just want to sit outside and admire the amazing architecture and exquisite views of the Cinque Terre. The booking agency was very efficient and very helpful- everything was as described. I had read so much about the stairs in Manarola and how difficult access to apartments with views are, I was a little concerned about taking my elderly parents there. However it wasn't bad at all. There was a walk uphill on a well maintained cobbled path and maybe 30-40 steps down to the apartment ( that means 40 steps up on the way out) my husband and I are quite fit so we found it very easy. My parents are 80 and they coped very well- the steps out the only hard part but there is no rush on holidays so that was easy too. We al enjoyed the challenge as it compensated a little for the food we were consuming! Dragging your bags uphill to the apartment require some effort but we arranged for a bag handler to help (€5 per person) however we just used him for my parents bags and my husband dragged 2 bags up himself. So help really wasn't needed although if you are not reasonably fit you may choose to lay for some assistance. Overall loved the apartment, loved Manarola, loved Cinque Terre and we will be back.
