Well equipped, friendly hosts

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at this property, the kitchen was well equipped and there were lots of nice features in the room. We were greeted by two lovely women who helped us settle in and learn about the property.

Our only issue was the property being labeled on VRBO as being in Riggiomoŕie, when in fact it was high on the hill above Manarola (3400 steps up a steep path), so was not possible to easily get down to the shops and restaurants in any town except by bus. As these buses don't run at night we couldn't even enjoy an evening out. Not a fault of the property but it wasn't what we expected from our booking.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thanks for this review. I understand that when a person book a place at times has expectations that do not correspond to reality but it is better before You book make sure the place and position. They are very clear on the website. Our apartment is part of the municipality of Riomaggiore and I can not write Manarola. From the map on the website it is now, however, easy to locate the position and distances. During July and August, the bus also carries the races in the evening until 10.00. For those planning to do later in the night there is also a taxi service, reported to the bus stop ( 24 hour all the year) . After saying this though I'm sorry if Your days were not as You had thought them. I wish You the best. Laura

"This apartment is real good for a small family and well equipped. It lies above Manorola in Volastra and is ideally close to the walking paths. There is a small supermarket and a take away restaurant close to the apartment. This is a good choice in beautiful environment."

la grotta del amore !

  • 5 of 5

très belle location, idéalement située, l'accueil à été parfait nous avons parlé le franglaitalien une langue pas facile a maitriser. la grotta est une très belle location, il ne manque rien, c'est un véritable petit nid. idéalement située à Volastra sur le chemin pour se rendre à Manarola on est au calme dans un petit cocon. belle salle de bain, cuisine bien fonctionnelle, lit 160 avec une très bonne literie on s'y sent bien. Enfin c'est ce que nous avons ressenti, si vous souhaitez cette découvrir les cinque terre d'un point de départ idéal n'hésitez pas. Merci Laura .

Location molto caratteristica e romantica, il posto è molto tranquillo, la proprietaria gentilissima

  • 5 of 5

4/7/2016

Siamo tornati oggi dal soggiorno a Volastra nella grotta di Giulio, ci è piaciuto molto, la signora Rina è stata molto gentile, il posto è tranquillo, un paradiso, c'è un mini bus che porta a Manarola e da lì si può prendere il treno o il battello per vedere le Cinque Terre, noi le abbiamo viste tutte e siamo stati anche a Portovenere.

Non perdetevene nemmeno una perché davvero ne vale la pena...

Vi consiglio caldamente La grotta di Giulio e poi Homeway è una garanzia.

Un saluto alla signora Rina e alla signora Laura

Grazie
