Two weeks of perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a wonderful two week stay in this beautiful villa. There were 4 of us the first week, and 5 of us the second week. There are not enough adjectives to describe this wonderful place. Lorella has done a fantastic job of describing her property, and it was exactly as we expected. The property was clean, and well appointed, and Lorella was available by email to answer any questions we had as the week went on. We loved spending time on the balconies just watching the activity in the harbor, the sunsets, and the few storms move in and out. We had intended to cook some of our meals, but in reality, we just ate out or got takeout from the shops in town. The hike up and down the hill put us in great shape for all the other hikes we did while in the Cinque Terre. There are many good eating places.......we were a little disappointed with Billy's as it had come highly recommended by many, but we found it to be average..........We loved Porticciolo and had 2 fantastic meals there.......we also tried all the morning spots for our cappuccino and brioche. Our favorite spot was Nessun Dorma - we loved taking the Pesto Course there, and getting a spritz and snacks in the afternoon - Simone was a delightful instructor. It was fun to sit outside while sipping cappuccino and watch the town get ready for the day with all the deliveries and store openings. We also really enjoyed our sunset cruise with Daniele. Another great experience was the Olive Oil Tasting Course at Olivium.

The al fresco shower in the laundry room was a delight. I really can't think of a thing that needs to be changed. The property is very good value for the dollar, and we recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great Italian experience. We love hiking, and found this to be a great base for that. We would leave town mid morning before it got too crowded, spend the better part of the day on the trails, then return in the evening when the crowds were dying down. Manarola is one of the more quiet towns, so most evenings it was very peaceful.

Thank you Lorella for a marvelous stay in a wonderful villa!

A Very Special Villa in Manarola, Cinque Terre

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! That would be the word I'd choose if only given the space for one word to describe my recent stay at this beautiful villa. Between the location (prime spot overlooking the harbor of Manarola, Cinque Terre), the house design (built by the great grandfather of the lovely current owner, yet as up-to-date as if designed recently) and the charming village (a personal favorite of the five), I couldn't be happier to provide a glowing review.

This was a 50th Birthday celebration. Having invited five friends to join me, I had hoped the setting would provide the backdrop I wanted in order to thank my friends for being in my corner over the many years. It surpassed my expectations in every way. In fact, my friends have since said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience they will never forget. I agree.

Our host was always available through the process of renting/planning/staying at her beautiful home. The house is clearly well-managed and looked after. All the modern necessities are on hand: Wifi, dishwasher, washing machine w/ clothes line, plenty of outdoor seating areas and lounge chairs, four terraces and so on make this a great choice for anyone wanting to experience this beautiful setting, while enjoying the creature comforts of home.

Again, a beatufil villa in a charming town with a lovely host. Amazing!

We were very excited about coming to Manarola and we were not disappointed. What an amazing place! We met Lorella who showed us round her beautiful house. She explained everything very clearly to us which was very helpful. We fell in love with the place. Fantastic situation overlooking the Ligurian Sea. Some spectacular sunsets! The house was full of interesting memorabilia and the Bougainville was quite beautiful. Only slightly disappointing thing was one of the bedrooms was only accessed by going through another bedroom which meant if you needed to get up in the night then you had to go through the other couples' room. However it didn't cause too much of a problem to us. We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in a truly magical part of the world. We were extremely fit by the end of the week. One of the best memories was swimming in the sea every morning before all the tourists arrived on the ferries. We enjoyed every moment in Manarola!!

Spectacular villa overlooking the see

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa overlooking the sea was a perfect vacation destination. The kitchen was fully equipped and met all our needs. Lorella, our hostess and owner, was so helpful providing local information from train schedules, boat schedules and city information. The house was very clean and provided all our necessities to include beach towels. The extra touches as cold water upon our arrival, cart for shopping and list of best restaurants and gelato! The kumquat and lemon trees were a pleasant treat. Daily, while drinking our morning coffee, planning our adventures, we sat on the terrace overlooking the harbor. Total tranquility with a morning breeze, and a view of Corniglia and Monterosso. We stayed 2 weeks, and could have stayed a month easily, so much to see and do in Cinque Terre. We visited all 5 terres, hiked the trails, visited wineyards with delicious wine tasting, swimming in the blue clear harbor and enjoyed meeting the friendly locals in our daily activities. At the end of our day, we would enjoy sipping wine on the 3rd floor terrace, surrounded with blooming flowers and watching the gorgeous sunset followed by the village lights or the fishing boats heading out for anchovy fishing. Manarola has great restaurants offering pizza, pasta, local daily caught fish and wonderful local wines and beer, with tasty desserts and limoncello. Cinque Terre offers something for everyone, be it singles, family, couples, young and old. We highly recommend this beautiful, perfectly located villa and are already planning our return. Thank you, Lorella for an absolute dream vacation. We look forward to returning and staying in your spectacular villa.

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.
