OUR CINQUE TERRE HOME BASE LOCATION WAS EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

LUCA IS THE BEST HOST. HE GREETED, HELPED WITH PARKING, LUGGAGE TRECKING TO VILLA, SHOWED US THE HOME AND ALL WE NEEDED TO KNOW.

THEN AFTER PUTTING A BOTTLE OF PRESECCO IN THE FRIDGE OFF HE WENT, LEAVING US OUR TIME TO EXPLORE CINQUE TERRE. THE HOME IS ON THE

BEGINNING HIKING TRAIL TO MONTEROSSO. LISTENING TO THE WAVES AND THAT VIEW FROM EVERY WINDOW IS STUNNING. THE HARBOR BELOW WITH ALL THE ACTIVITY IS FUN TO WATCH. THE TRAIN BECOMES QUIETIER WITH EACH PASSING DAY. CHURCH BELLS BEGIN AND END EACH DAY.

WE NEVER USED THE KITCHEN, BUT IT LOOKED VERY NICE. IT WAS ONLY MY HUSBAND AND ME, COULDN'T IMAGINE 8 PEOPLE WITH 2 TOILETS.

WE DROVE INTO VERNAZZA FROM MONTEROSSO, WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THAT, TAKE AUTOSTRADA, AS FAR AS POSSIBLE AND RESERVE LUCA'S PARKING SPOT! OTHERWISE, THE TRAIN TAKES YOU RIGHT INTO TOWN. THANKS LUCA FOR SHARING YOUR LOVELY FAMILY HOME.

The Jewel of Vernazza!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Il Conventino. Perched on the cliff above Vernazza harbor, the villa has commanding views from every door and window. Not to mention, of course, the wrap-around balcony which we enjoyed immensely.

Luca was a gracious host who waited for us patiently while we had train delays, then took his time explaining the workings of the house and giving advice on where to eat and shop. He was very prompt in all his communications and keeps his villa immaculate. He and his place are highly recommended!

Perfect spot for visiting the Cinque Terre

  • 5 of 5

Emanuela took us up to the home and helped us get settled. She was personable and helpful. The home has a breathtaking view of the harbor. We enjoyed the wonderful linens on the beds. We spent time on the terrace soaking up the sun. We day tripped among the 5 towns and always looked forward to returning home in the evening.

I cannot recommend this home highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

Exceptional views and location

  • 5 of 5

Convertino is an elegant home positioned at the start of the trail from Vernazza to Monterosso. Comfortable lodgings. Only disappointed that we did not get to meet the owner so it was a little logistically challenging but all was well in the end.

dream like

  • 5 of 5

we arrived on the train and felt stuck in the tourism that is this area. luca was there waiting. having not met i second quessed myself that it was him. as we made our way up the stairs to his place i heard him asked another person if she was me...from that moment on we were no longer tourists in the loveliest of places i have been. living in florida we love our ocean and to be able to live with theirs and swim in it was a highlight of our spectacular european trip. from france to italy to austria, this place did it for me. i was inspired to write daily from the sights and the sounds of vernazza. we had friends join us and everyone was instantly inspired by the beauty of this lovely home built by his grandfather and cared for by the years. the windows in all rooms and main room were key. some homes have a palatable spirit about them and this os one. the kitchen was a kitchen of a cook...which i love...and the bathrooms were everything a bather needs. beds with fresh ocean air and sounds were like sleeping in the heavens...so good, so very very good. the church below seemed to fuel the free fire...such and amazing place.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 persons from Sweden . Luca met us near the railwaystation and helped us with the luggage . I must say that this was a very nice house and also a very good service from Luca.
