About Pamela Bonanni
My family has deep roots in the Cinque Terre. My father was born in Riomaggiore and emigrated to America as a young man. Although I was born and raised in Florida, our family returned to Riomaggiore for long summer vacations whenever we could. When my children were born, I wanted to instill in them a love of their unique heritage. So we moved to Italy, to the village of our ancestors! The years we lived in Rio were magical, but personal reasons brought us back to Sarasota, Florida. We treasure the time we can spend in Riomaggiore, and love being able to share this special spot in paradise with our guests.
Pamela Bonanni purchased this Villa in 1999

Can't beat the view
We loved our stay here. The views are fantastic and unlike most of the places to stay in Riomaggiore, this place is it's own house with a yard and fantastic views. Pretty much everything else we saw was an apartment and not as likely to have the views that you have here. Pamela the owner was great! She was very responsive and met us at the train station on check in day. The house was very comfortable and well appointed which came in handy on a rainy day when most of the businesses were closed. We were able to cook for ourselves in the kitchen with stuff we purchased the day before thanks to Pamela's heads up about the incoming weather and it shutting down most of the stores that next day.
Pam helped make our vacation special. Wonderful place to stay
Wonderful relaxing place to enjoy Cinque Terre!
This property is terrific! A great location with a beautiful view.
Paradise in Riomaggiore
This property is even more stunning than the online photos. The view is breathtaking and the home is much bigger than we had expected. We were able to enjoy wonderful family time together in this lovely location. It is very quiet and serene and has great amenities. We would definitely come back. Pamela was extremely helpful and provided valuable information to help us enjoy our time in Riomaggiore. A real gem.
Beautiful Family Home in Paradise
Pam's home in Riomaggiore couldn't have been better, would highly recommend.
Pam was a wonderful host, a great communicator, and when she couldn't meet us, she made us feel right at home with her local assistant Simone. She even left us a bottle of wine and sparkling water in the refrigerator.
The home was spotless. The views were amazing. She left out chairs in the outdoor areas for us. Beach towels. She thought of everything.
The house is high up a steep incline, but for the views, totally worth the climb. If climbing is not easy, you might want to take advantage of the luggage service which Pam will give you the information within her very handy package after booking.
This is a wonderful family home to enjoy paradise.
Cinque Terre house
We had an amazing experience in Cinque Terre. We booked this house through VRBO and the communication was great with the owner. We really enjoyed the location of the house and it was well stocked with everything we needed. Thank you for all of the information you provided us prior to the trip. Thank you also for your advice on how to get to your property and helping us book the local taxi driver. It was seamless. Simone was very helpful with the check in and check out!
Visiting the Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the highlight of many traveler's journey to Italy. The Cinque Terre National Park offers spectacular hiking from village to village, through terraced vineyards, olive groves, and perfumed forests of the Mediterranean coast. Water sport enthusiasts will enjoy swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and diving in the pristine National Marine Reserve. The Cinque Terre is a wonderful place to unwind, relax, and experience the real Italy, while enjoying Ligurian cuisine and the legendary local wines. Many delightful attractions are easy daytrips from Riomaggiore, including Pisa, Lucca, the marble quarries of Carrara, Portovenere and the Gulf of Poets, glamourous Portofino, and Genoa, with the aquarium and museums. Riomaggiore is a perfect base for exploring the Cinque Terre, and beyond.
