Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Monterosso - lo Sceriffo

House, garden, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Lo Sceriffo (The Sheriff) is a charming little house ideally located in a private park, with ancient trees and the typical Mediterranean Flora, next to a private pine forest.

The park surrounds the old Villa where the Nobel Prize winner for Literature poet Eugenio Montale used to live and write.

Lo Sceriffo is located in the middle of this park, in its own beautiful garden; it is peaceful and quiet, yet only 100 metres from the sea.

The house has just been renovated; part of the pictures you see were taken before the renovations and as soon as we have the new ones they will be updated.

The house is cozy and nicely decorated and the renovations respected the style and mood of the house, making it more comfortable, with air conditioning and high quality finishing.

There is a living room with a wide window with a view on the garden, a little kitchen with everything you need, two double bedrooms, one single bedroom and two bathrooms, both with shower. One of the bathrooms is en-suite in the main bedroom. The bedrooms have single beds that can be arranged as king beds, so there are different sleeping options.

In the front garden there is a beautiful deck with a sunshade and tables and chairs where you can relax and enjoy the silence and the charme of the place.

In the back garden there's a laundry and storage room.

You can feel out of this world, but the shops and the restaurants are just 200 metres from the house.

It is a poetic and unique place.

About The Owner

Stefano and Barbara Massari live in Rome with their two cats. Stefano is a mental coach and Barbara is an art director. They usually spend their summer holidays at lo Sceriffo, a place they love very much.

Why The Owner chose Monterosso

The house is set in the park of la Vecchiona, the oldest villa in Monterosso, and the property has belonged to the family for generations.

What makes this house unique

A lovely property with a beautiful garden, set in a very exclusive position, peaceful yet very close to the sea and the shops and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is in a absolutely gorgeous location-- close to shops and restaurants, but still private and quiet. It is a rare combination in this area that it is both accessible by car and by train. A very good base for exploring the Cinqueterra. The house itself is charming, light, well-equipped, and is comfortable for 6 people. Our only complaint was that we went in mid-March when the weather was cooler and the house was difficult/expensive to heat. However, in nicer weather it would be perfect and a very good value.

Beautiful house in a peaceful setting

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very nice week in this beautiful house. It is cozy and quite newly renovated. It is situated very peaceful on one Monterosso's northern end, yet it is only 100 metres to the sea and 400 metres to the train station. The beach is nice and very suitable for small children. We could go everywhere using the train. There are also good restaurants for every taste and some small shops to buy the basic groceries you need - and a small but very good market on Thursdays.

It was still very warm in October, though it rained every day but only 5-10 minutes each (only on one day for 4 hours). So this did not really bother us. The only problem about this was that due to the high humidity the wet clothes did not dry during the whole week. And there were really a lot of midges. We suggest to install mosquito nets at some windows so that you can get fresh air without midges :-)

Delightful Cottage in the Woods

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this cozy home last September, (2013) for one week. I am very tardy in writing this review. There were 4 retired people in our party. It was an easy walk to town through a lovely park. We referred to it as our "secret garden." The owner and the property manager were both wonderful to communicate with. They were most helpful in answering all our questions.
The house is decorated with lovely family treasures and artwork. It had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the patio area. Thank you for sharing your family vacation spot with us. We did not have a car and never needed one. The train and ferries were perfect for visiting the other villages of Cinque Terre. We would highly recommend this delightful spot to say.

Best of Monterosso

  • 5 out of 5
This place was the best thing about Monterosso! A wonderful and peaceful location that you don't want to leave unless you have god reasons to. It is perfectly located only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants. Stayed for a week in July, two families with small kids (in total 8 people). Even though the house is not big, it never felt crammed. The garden works as an extention of the house. The kids loved it. Very serious owners and kind and helpful managers. The only shortcoming of the house is the lack of fan or cooling device in the bedrooms. July can become quite hot, even in the night.

Danielle and Chris from Canada

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this cottage for 11 nights. It is will taken care of and had everything we needed. Which was a lot because we brought very little. Nicely decorated and beautiful private garden. Bed in master was very comfortable. Daniella the property manager was very friendly and helpful. The owners of lo Sceriffo are also very friendly and made it easy to book the cottage. Monterosso is a beautiful and friendly town. We enjoyed our time in 5 Terre very much. We hope to return in the future and would stay at lo Sceriffo.

Perfect Location

  • 5 out of 5
The description and photos are exactly what you will find. The location is very peaceful and quiet. It seems secluded, though you are only minutes from the beach (You can hear the sounds of the surf at night). Also, the house is only minutes from the train station and groceries. Though it is accessible by car, you will not need one -- The other Cinque Terre villages and La Spezia are only a short train ride away. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others or to return myself.

Nice home in an incredible location

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in this home with our three young children. It's near the family beach in Monterosso but in a private park which is just beautiful. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and we were able to sit outside for all of our meals. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we were greeted by Daniella who was super helpful wrt the house and the town itself. The house feels a little "old" on the inside (a little mold in the showers, etc) and the beds were fine--nothing super luxurious but comfortable enough. The owners were accommodating re: how we wanted to set up the beds, bedrooms, etc. We would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much Kerry for your stay at Lo Sceriffo.
We are happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay.
We appreciate your concern about the small amount of mold you found in the shower. We have had a record breaking amount of rain in the last months and Lo Sceriffo, being nestled in the woods, can be susceptible and vulnerable to the negative effects of excessive humidity. Having some hours cleaning provided for you during the week, you could have mentioned this in that circumstance, in order to have it solved during your stay; anyway we thank you for your warning and we will be extra careful in the future.
That said, we are happy to say we are making some renovations in our home in the coming months and we are very excited about it.
Hope to have you again at lo Sceriffo!
