We were quite impressed with this property. While not directly in the heart of RIommagiore, it takes about 20 minutes to get there if, like us, you have had enough walking at the end of your day, a 7 minute bus ride right to your door!
The place is completely charming: gardens, views, surroundings. Loved it all. For a couple, it was perfect! Not sure that I would recommend 2 couples though as the 2nd bedroom is not closed off. Valter and his wife are perfect hosts, offering to meet us when we arrived (even offering to take us back to the village for our return trip, greeting us with a lovely basket of local goodies, and giving us a complete tour of the place. They even stock pasta and tomatoes for emergency dinners like the one we wanted after a long day of travel.
if you like to be away from it all, the tourist hustle, you won't go wrong.
My husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary in this beautiful home. We were greeted by the owners on arrival and given a quick tour of the house. We were suprised by their gifts of wine, coffee and fruit. The house was clean and well stocked with anything we needed to cook our own meals. The terraced gardens surrounding the house were beautiful with fruit trees, herbs and pots full of beautiful succulent plants of every variety and orchids. The bottom terrace contained a pen filled with turtles. The location is perfect with close proximity to paths leading to Riomaggiore and Manarola. A perfect place for those wanting to hike or just sit on the terrace and watch the sea.
If you like the pleasures of rural living (garden, fresh air, hiking out your door, stars) you will love this place. We were there in the fall, and built a fire every night with the olive wood they had cut and stacked. They gave us bottles of vine from their stash, and told us to help ourselves to the jars of preserves and the garden. It's an easy walk down into the hustle and bustle of Riomaggiore. The house is small and cozy. The only complaint was no bathtub.
This is one of the best holidays we ever had, even better than in Roma or Sicilia. The house is the most wonderful place, secluded but not isolated, luxurious in a right way (the garden is Edenic) , and just living there we soon realised that it is the best location in the whole of 5 Terre. This is a secret I find almost painful to reveal, but it has to be shared. This is an incredible place, the owner and his family are fabulously welcoming. You will not believe your eyes when you rent this house, and cross the threshold for the first time. But do not expect Hilton and Holiday Inn standards. Expect the highest standard you have ever dreamed of. True, not fake, quality. This is a jewel indeed. Brilliant for friends, families, couples. Think of us when you feed the turtles, pick your tomatoes, and lounge under the Kiwi and Pepper trees, titillated by the smell from the barbecue simmering on the stunning terrace. I stop there, and will not even go into the sublime views. I must keep it a surprise! This place is a miracle, and be certain that we are not exaggerating.
Das Steinhaus liegt an der Hauptstrasse der CT.
Toll ist der neue eigene Parkplatz direkt unter dem Haus.
Die ebenso dort angeordnete Tankstelle ist im ersten Augenblick gewöhnungsbedürftig stört aber in keinster Weise.
In den Ort gelangt man über einen kleinen Weg. Achtung bis zum Hafen sind 200 Höhenmeter zu überwinden! Im Ort gibt es sehr sehr wenige und teure Parkplätze, schnell mal einkaufen fahren spielt es nicht da muss man nach La Spezia (ca. 20 Min. mit dem Auto).
Der Vermieter "Valter" ist sehr sehr nett und versorgt die Mieter mit selbst gekellterten Wein.
Das ganze Haus ist liebevoll ausgestattet und durch "Valter" selbst restauriert. Die Aussenanlagen sind für die CT typisch. Obst, Wein, Blumen alles da und liebvoll gepflegt.
Zu beachten ist, dass so viel Grün auch Tiere aller Art anzieht. Das Haus (der Innenraum) ist jedoch perfekt geschützt und für aussen gibt es entsprechende Mittel (Spiralen, Kerzen).
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Auch das Grillen und die Freiküche.
Danke Valter für schöne und erholsame Ferien.
