So close to the famous Cinque Terre and at the same time even in July totally 'away from it all'. We loved this house. Beautiful location, amazing vista's (it's even better than the pictures, every night we were treated to the most gorgeous sunsets) and ... a bit adventurous. Loved to hike the old stone roads to the house, even when it was hot. The place is very quiet (the house is set high above the sea and above the little village of Monesteroli) and totally private. So you get unbelievable vista's, wildlife (wild boar and martens!) and a free workout. We left our car at the designated parking spot for the whole week and did everything by foot. There is much to explore and hike. For groceries we went to Biassa or Campiglia (the little store in Campiglia is sometimes closed when you don't expect it, but there's great pasta at PiccoloBlu which we also recommend, lovely hike down to the sea from Campiglia, but the way back is pretty heavy when it's hot). We even hiked with our children to Rio Maggiore, took a swim there and had a nice lunch at 'Enoteca dau cila', great location for watching people. Closer by, the food at 'Colle di Telegrafo' was really, really wonderful! We hope to come back to your lovely and very special house Luca! It was a wonderful experience. It really is... an experience!
