Gem in Vernazza!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an enjoyable stay at Il Contino in Vernazza. Beautiful, authentic, Villa overlooking the harbor. Working with Luca was easy, and he responded quickly when we had a problem with the power. My only suggestion is that there needs to be a towel ring in the small bathroom. Easy fix though to keep a hand towel on the side of the sink. Highly recommend for couples traveling together. The view is amazing!

Incredible View and a Charming House

  • 4 of 5

It is many steps to this house, but when you get there it is a special place. The luggage porters make the trip much easier. There are many details in the doors and decorations that add character to the place. The wi-fi is strong. There are a few details that are inconvenient. It is really only a 1 + 1/2 bath house. The second shower can only be used by spraying water over the entire bathroom because there is no shower stall. One of the bedrooms lacks the clothes hooks found in the other three. It is an expensive house to rent, and it is surprising that there is no clothes washer. There is also no dishwasher.

Owner's Response: Dear Bill, has you have seen there is not enough space on the upper storey to have 4 double rooms and 2 bathrooms. So to accomodate 8 persons, the most intelligent way was to create a boatlike bathroom with shower, washbasin and wc to guarantee at least two independent spots usable at the same time. In the house we have no drain system but a septic tank, so using washing machine or dishwasher would actually destroy the bacteria fauna that allows the system to work efficiently. I hope i gave you reasonable answers. Many thanx for staying with us. Luca

Stunning location, details lacking

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a lovely stay at the villa...I'm only being picky because of the high peak-season rate we paid. First, the house is truly unique and charming with an incredible view from nearly all the rooms and a nice terrace. We met a porter at the train station for an easy check-in, and Luca was very responsive via text message. The house didn't seem completely clean, the soap dispensers were empty, and there wasn't much toilet paper or any paper towels in the kitchen. Mattresses were comfortable but most of the pillows could use an update. Internet connection was great. And just an FYI, there's no microwave, but that probably doesn't affect most people on vacation. I just have an impatient baby whose bottles I was heating on the stove. We cooked several nights in the kitchen and found everything we needed (we also followed Luca's suggestion for a great dinner at Gianni Franzi in the main square). The entrance to the house is conveniently right on the trail to Monterosso, but be aware that the train runs literally beneath it and is very loud in the mornings.

Overall, we loved watching the sunsets from the perch above town, but at over 500USD/night, we found the details lacking.

Owner's Response: Dear Liz, your stay has been of 3 days, if you thought there were some problems and since you had both internet and an italian speaking life partner, a single message would have been enough to get rid of the lackings. But i only received suggestions requests. Welcome kits of soap, shampoo and toilet paper are always present, but this is a vacation rental and normally people buy their own things. We always try to do our best, but sometimes an inadvertence might happen. Best Luca

A Cinque Terre Dream

  • 5 of 5

This former convent has been transformed into a magnificent residence. The upper floor has 4 bedrooms although we only used two as 2 couples traveling together. The lower floor has a full kitchen, dining room and living room indoors and a wrap-around balcony from which to see all of the Vernazza harbor and some of the most beautiful sunsets while consuming Chianti and salami and cheese appetizers. Sound relaxing? It certainly is. From the property, we explored Vernazza and hiked to Corniglia. Restaurants are plentiful in Vernazza and we ate at several. (Il Grosso was our favorite)

Up to four couples or a family with kids could comfortably stay here. There are 2 bathrooms with the second actually being a shower room as well. It is smaller than the full bathroom. Also, be prepared to climb stairs to get to the front door. This is a property best used by non-handicapped persons.

The best part was the clear and timely communication from Luca, the owner. He made perfect plans for us to be met a tthe train station in Vernazza and to have our heavy bags carried to the property by porters who work out of the souvenir shop on the train platform. This was a great help to us.

In conclusion, treat yourself to the finest property in Vernazza, the finest village to stay in on theCinque Terre.

A Little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Luca was a wonderful help to us when our train was cancelled. He had some local gentlemen to help with luggage as we climbed 109 steps to the property. The 109 steps were nothing as we enjoyed the amazing sea view. We would love stay there again if we visit Vernazza. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful,stay.
