Vacation in Monterosso
We stayed at this lovely apartment for 4 nights and had a fantastic time! Iris was very helpful even prior to our stay, answering all our questions and easily accessible. The apartment is very comfortable! The beds, shower, air conditioning, wifi, and all amenities were perfect! The unit is bright and spacious, so that our family of 6 had plenty of space. It is a short walk to the grocery store and the beach, as long as you are comfortable with climbing steps. We loved this apartment and would definitely contact Iris again if we return!
Thanks Orchid for the nice words of appreciation ! It was nice to have you as guess and I’m very happy to have met you and your beautiful family :)
Welcome back !!
The apartment was great and the area was amazing
Wonderful apartment and view. Iris the apartment manager was wonderful. When we come back to Monterosso we will stay here again.
Thanks for the nice review and you have been wonderful guests :) Welcome back anytime !!!
Can’t imagine a nicer host!
This was our first trip to Cinque Terre and we look forward to returning one day. Iris met us at the train station the evening we arrived with a taxi to help transport our luggage and acclimate us to the surroundings. Bougainvillea is just a few minute drive or walk from the Monterosso train station. Iris considered all the details; she had prepared maps and restaurant reviews for us, as well as, left cookies, oranges, and wine (from her native part of Italy) as an arrival treat. (We devoured the cookies within the first day as they were such a delicious treat). Because we arrived in the evening and were interested in getting diinner, iris called ahead to get us reservations. We used Monterosso for the next 2 days as we explored all five towns in Cinque Terre. With iris’s direction, we hiked from Monterosso to Vernazza and Corniglia the first day and enjoyed exploring each of what these towns had to offer. We took some spectacular photos along the trail. Iris checked in via text to see if we needed anything. Bougainvillea was the perfect home base for my husband, my college daughter and me. It was modern, recently renovated, well equipped and a great location. The bathroom was spacious and modern. Everything in Monterosso is with walking distance. Iris was kind enough to meet us at the train station to say good bye as we departed from monterosso. She even brought us more of the cookies we told her we loved. I highly recommend Cinque Terre to anyone traveling to Italy and you will not find a more amazing host than iris. I know she has several properties depending on size of group.

Oh my God !! Thanks for your beautiful review: since it is the first one of 2018, I have to be very good further on :) I do hope to have such wonderful guests as you have been: it was a pleasure meeting you and I will be happy to see you again one day :) Take care and all the best to you !!
Iris instantly made us feel welcome with all her tips on the cinque terre and was very personable. The place was beautiful with balconies that over looked the Mediterranean. Everything was clean and we were very satisfied with our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
Thanks Heidi and welcome back !!
If you are thinking about renting this property do not hesitate, book it now to avoid disappointment. The apartment has everything you need. The host is dialed in and has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. Fresh oranges, a bottle of wine and a local favourite of lemoncello greeted us upon arrival! So thoughtful. I have stayed in many properties all over the world and this one leads the list. The hospitality of the host can not be beat.
Many thanks !!! I'm happy to have met you: you are very nice people :) and glad to know that you enjoyed your stay at Bougainville: it is a real pleasure to have at home guests as you !!
Iris was very nice and accommodating. She helped us find the best local restaurants and sights to see.
Place of high historical and cultural value, recognized by the UNESCO; area of great natural beauty still on a human scale. Beach, shops, restaurants, walks, boat trips, all at hand. Fine Dining, hiking, relaxation, all in one place!
