About Giovanni

I'm Italian and I was born and lived in Monterosso for 25 Years. I lived and worked in UK (London) for 15 years and I came back to Italy in 2002 with my English Wife and our 3 Kids. I really enjoy meeting people and share my life experiences and knowledge of this beautiful area of Italy.

Pretty WHote House - Monterosso al Maree

Date of Stay

May 15, 2017



My husband and I stayed here with our 11 month old daughter and my husband's parents for three nights, May 15th - 18th. The pictures, while great, don't fully convey how wonderful this home is. The lower level, with the living area and kitchen, is cool and comfortable, with large windows that let the sea breeze in. The upper level, with ample sized bedrooms, is much the same. Everyone slept soundly in the very comfortable beds and enjoyed the sound of the waves with the windows open. The deck is bright and sunny and affords peekaboo views of the water. The dining terrace is absolutely sublime, set amongst the lush trees and fragrant jasmine. Each night of our visit, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out there with a bottle of local wine, watching fire flies blink in the night, and listening to the joyful sound of the birds and waves on the beach. This is a detached, single family home, offering plenty of privacy, but is very conveniently located about a ten minute walk from the train station and about three minutes to the nearest public beach. In addition to the property being even more wonderful than we'd imagined, the host Giovanni and his associate Daria were warm and inviting. She was very kind to meet us at the train station to escort us to the property and give us a thorough orientation. We were very appreciative of the info sheet provided, particularly regarding details on operating the washing machine and recommendations for local restaurants. In short, our stay in Monterosso at the "Pretty White House" was absolutely sublime. If ever we have the opportunity to return, we would gladly stay here again. Our only regret is that we had to leave so soon. I really can't recommend this place enough!

Great little find

  • 5 of 5

The Pretty White House in Monterosso Al Mare is perfectly located to everything in the village. The beach is two minutes down from the house. Grocery stores, restaurants, gelato, pastry places, wine bar all so close to the Pretty White House. But the house is situated in such a way you have your privacy. It sits up on a hill in bewtween beautiful trees and plants. Giovanni (the owner ) is such a nice person to deal with. He is so accommodating and friendly. In such a short time staying there I feel I have a new friend. He was great with recommending restaurants and things to do there in Monterosso. The house does not have air conditioning, but in every room there are big windows that open up to get a nice breeze. Being from Upstate NY I was concerned about bugs coming into the house with all the windows open, but except for a couple little flies it was great. You hear the ocean at night , which is so relaxing. Now if you are the athletic type you will love the challenge of the hiking trails. My sons started the trails in Monterosso and continued on to the next two villages. It took about three hours and many many steps to climb. When coming back they took the train. Monterosso was our last stop on our Italy trip so it was perfect place to relax, go to the beach, eat, drink, and shop. The Pretty White House is at the end of one side of the beach and to get to the old town on the other side of the beach takes about a 25 minute walk. The train station is in the middle. I would definitely recommend the Pretty White House to everyone. You do have the option to cook, but why would you with all great food around you. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel then you will need to keep looking. If you are looking for a clean, cozy, reasonably price place with an owner who actually cares about you and making sure you have a wonderful time then the Pretty White House is the place to go.

Great beach home

  • 4 of 5

We loved many things about this home. First loved having an easy place for our car - hard to come by in this area. We loved the location- kids enjoyed being so close to the beach and we enjoyed the more private setting just off the main tourist road. The property owner was very responsive and helpful and we had everything we needed. Traveling with kids we appreciated having two rooms each with 2 single beds and a 3rd parent bedroom. Be mindful this is a beach home - coming from HI we are very accustomed to the occasional sugar ant trail, ocean breeze and sweeping out the sand. If you love beach homes you’ll like this place.

Beautiful location and helpful host but the property needed a deep clean and was damp.

  • 3 of 5

Could be a fabulous holiday stay as in a perfect location for beach, town and railway station. Needs some up dating and cleaning.
