Superb experience

  • 4 of 5

A superb experience to stay in this dream-like location, overlooking the harbour and beyond, with constantly changing light and dark throughout the day, waves breaking on the rocks below, clouds rolling over the hills, gulls dive-bombing into the ocean and a view from Corniglia to Monterosso. Easy access to the rail line connects you with all of the towns in the Cinque Terre. The Town of Manarola is tiny, with only basic amenities. But there are enough good restaurants and provision stores to survive comfortably.

The house is old, but comfortable, tastefully designed and functional. The kitchen is a bit cramped but well stocked. Needs a hot water jug. The two bedrooms on the middle floor are connected so you need to pass through the room with two single beds to gain access to the room with double bed. The bedroom below is a self-contained apartment with large sitting area outside.

Wifi was an issue: it comes via a repeater from another house. The repeater was defective and needed to be restarted daily by long-pressing the power button. Signal only reached the top floor. Ideally, the house would have its own source of wifi and a repeater on each floor to give access throughout the house. This would not require a large financial outlay. In the meantime, a sim card with 2 gb data for 30 euros at Milan airport will meet most modest requirements.

I would urge against rushing through the Cinque Terre like so many head of bovine tourists. Appreciate the town in the early morning and the evening when it's quiet and secluded. Discover the almost deserted walks off the main paths. This is a very special place. Stay a week and soak it up.

Owner's Response: I've deeply appreciated every detail and suggestion of this review !!! We hope it will be helpful for future guests who are ever recommended to look to lots of pictures, on the advertise or on our web site, that perfectly describe our house : they previously know what they'll find . Belvedere226 is absolutely an old house : an ancient and authentic "tower house" . It was built by my grand-grand -father, then renewed by my father and by me, both architects and both focused to maintain the "old" soul of the house with new forniture and materials of hight quality ...even if we forgot the hot water jug ;-) , in any case I 'll provide it, it is a good idea!! Concerning the wifi , we promptly resolved the problem and, as we used, no expense spared Our aim is to make your stay at Belvedere226 as unique as unrepeatable, as we have done so far and we hope to do in the future

Best in Cinque Terre

  • 5 of 5

Wow is the first thought that comes to mind, followed by amazing, unforgettable, and perfect. If possible, this property is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. The view from any of the four balconies will be imprinted in my mind for a long time to come, and the sunset from the garden level on our final night was a true masterpiece of nature. Lorella was very responsive to all email requests, and met us at the villa for an overview and introduction to the property. From there on out, every need we had as two couples was perfectly accommodated by the villa. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to prepare an in house breakfast and dinner. The living room is somewhat narrow, but just throw open the balcony doors, and everything is ok. Internet was efficient.

The location is on the cliffside top of the village, and an uphill climb from the train station...but well worth every step for the amazing views. Yeah, I'm biased, but Manarola turned out to be my favorite village of the 5. Plenty of restaurants and groceries/coops were open for dining and personal needs . Even though the Blue coastal trails are closed in and out of Manarola, there are still plenty of opportunities to hike in the five villages. We did a hike from Manarola to Corniglia, and another from Monterosso to Vernazza.

Overall, the Cinque Terre is a beautiful destination, and I can not imagine there is a finer place than Manarola and Lorella's villa. I would recommend this to anyone.

Awesome Stay in Manarola

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our family getaway at this villa. It has one of the best view in my opinion just breathtaking. You hear the waves at night from your room :) Villa is very well equipped kitchen has everything you need. It's within walking distance to train, store/shops and restaurant. We enjoyed hiking the trails nearby. Manarola is one of our favorite villages in Cinque Terre. Would definitely recommend this place if you are planning to stay here.

Cinque Terre Idyll

Lorella is the perfect hostess for the perfect apartment. Simply put, you will not want to leave! But, when you do, and sadly you must, you will start planning when to come back!

Spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Standing on the terrace overlooking the harbour, you feel like Manarola is your personal playground! The villa is charming. The kitchen is very well equipped; we cooked dinners and sat on the terrace to dine al fresco a couple of evenings when we weren't tempted by Trattoria Dal Billy (exceptional). This is the kind of place where you can sit on the terrace and stare out at the sea and forget all your worries. The afternoons can get very hot in the summer. A fan or two would be helpful, although once the sun sets sleeping is very comfortable. There is no better location in Manarola and we spent a wonderful week in this home. The owner, Lorella, is marvellous and easily accessed if you have any questions. Also, if this is your first time in Cinque Terre, Manarola is by far the best village. The villa is quiet and you can hear the waves at night from every room. No hesitation in recommending this property!"

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Manarola.

The house is a delight, with great views of the other Cinque Terre villages and ocean. The house is spread over three levels and the balconies on each level are perfect for relaxing with a drink and book, or enjoying the sunset over dinner. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get.

Lorella is lovely and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, even coming out to find us when we took a wrong turn on our arrival! All communications during and after booking were answered by Lorella in a quick and friendly way.

We highly recommend this property, wish we were there now!!
