Paradise found in Manarola

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with our two sons (ages 11 and 17) spent a week at Bellevedere226 and I can't say enough positive things about the experience. Lorella was super helpful when booking the reservation, providing suggestions on activities and restaurants, and immediately addressing any (small) issues we had during our stay. Then there's the house, the views over the Ligurian Sea are amazing as are the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks below as you drift off to sleep or awake for your next daily adventure. House is well stocked and small grocery nearby was sufficient to purchase staples. Made use of the laundry facilities (mid-way through our 3 week trip). We enjoyed great dining at 3 restaurants in Manarola (Trattoria Dal Billy, Marina Piccola and Aristide with the latter having an amazing 9-dish seafood anitpasti) as well dinners at restaurants in Riomagiorre and Monterosso al Mare (each are short train rides away). Enjoyed great appetizers and drinks at Nessun Dorma Cinque Terre on our last evening, there can be a long wait with tourists arriving by boat but we lucked out (easy to see when line is short from the house with ~5 min walk). Activity highlights were jumping into the water from the rock near the marina (~30 ft), swimming and hiking from Manarola to Vernazza via Sella Marvede (672 m) with more of the most amazing views and a great lunch at Trattoria da Sandro before taking the train back to base in Manarola. Endless time enjoying the views with coffee, wine, a good book complimented by the well stocked collection of music... The question isn't whether you should book this location the first time, it's when will you book your next stay to enjoy it all over again? Can't wait to return, thanks for the memories!

Stunning location! Great place to watch the sunset each evening!

  • 5 of 5

House was ideally situated on the cliffs above Manarola, with an absolutely INCREDIBLE view...

Really enjoyed exploring the region early each morning and late afternoon to avoid the crowds that pour in during middle of day each day!

Will return !!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Very hard to peel ourselves away from such a beautiful property. Lorella has maintained a beautiful property in an amazing location. We were delighted to have this as our home base as we explored the region.

We were greeted in Manarola by Lorella's friend, Rita. A very warm and gracious lady, who was extremely helpful in adding to the tips and guidance we had already been gathering. We would have been glad to have spent more time with Rita!

We found the highlight of Cinque Terre to be the great hikes we took, followed by fun in the water, whether kayaking or a boat rental. We got lucky having chosen Manarola as a home base. This is a great town, somewhat lesser traveled by the larger crowds which can be found in Montorosso or Vernazza. In all cases, the largest crowds tend to be day visitors, making mornings and evenings much more relaxing.

Our morning routine quickly settled in by picking up fresh produce and provisions for breakfast, and bringing them back to enjoy on one of the terraces of Belvedere 226. We planned our adventures for the day while looking over a beautiful harbor. In hindsight, the swimmers among us should have been going for open water swims each morning - the crystal clear waters were so calm.

We hiked, kayaked, rented a boat in Vernazza, rode bikes from Levanto to Framura, snorkeled, relaxed on beaches, and more during the daytime. Evenings ranged from lovely dining experience (Miky) to take out. Wine tasting at various locations, with the wine tasting experience in Vernazza a particular highlight.

All the while, the beautiful home base in Manarola. Lorella's property is beautiful, clean, extremely well equipped. I consider myself a decent photographer, and can comfortably say neither my photos, nor the ones on this website due justice to the beauty of this location.

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!
