About this listing
The Heart of Cinque Terre rent 2 independent rooms with bathroom, kitchen and parking, if you need it.
Our large property is reached by foot and car. It is located right on the Sentiero Azzurro, in the center of Cinque Terre National Park.
Ours is a stone house built about 400 years ago, and is surrounded by nature. Wild animals such as wild boars, foxes, rodents, and other animals are regular inhabitants of this area.
An area protected by UNESCO.
There are no particular problems if you observe the standards of living in the countryside, but if the rural life is not for you and you are not adaptable it's better that you book your room in one of the villages.
We will do our best to make your stay in our house is as relaxing and comfortable as possible but life in countryside has its own strengths and weaknesses.
DESCRIPTION OF HOUSE
Our house is the 'only' accommodation along the Blue Path, in the highest and most impressive spot (208 m. Above sea level), with an unrivaled view of 4 islands: Elba, Gorgona, Capraia and Corsica (France).
It is located on top of a cliff that breaks out into the sea, facing south.
Our cottage is right in the center of the Cinque Terre National Park, right on the Blue Path, between Corniglia and Vernazza (2 km), in a tiny hamlet named 'Prevo' with a breathtaking view, away from the crowds of the villages, just overlooking the famous Guvano beach.
All around the house there are olive trees and fruit trees, vineyards and other vegetation.
The house has been renovated with taste and simplicity, trying to preserve as much as possible to its historical roots.
For adventurous travelers looking to explore this fantastic region on foot or for those who simply want a quiet haven to relax and unwind, our house is the perfect place to do it.

Un endroit paradisiaque pour tous ceux qui aiment nature et vérité. Pier Paolo est un hôte discret et extrêmement attentif au bien être de ses invités. À reader sans hésitation.
Pierpaolo was so friendly and helpful. We had big bags and he came to pick us up from the train station in Corniglia and dropped us off the next day. The space was so comfortable and beautiful, and the mullberries he had grown were delicious!
pierpaolo was helpful and kind to my sister and I upon arrival. He helped us find the location despite the tricky roads as we were coming by car. The location was perfect if you only have a short time as we did because you can immediately get on the blue path and walk to Vernazza or Corniglia. The only thing I would say is if at all possible, do not come by car. It was quite stressful driving on the roads to the b&b and we almost got our rental car stuck at the bottom of the steep driveway. Also, make sure you have a manual car to drive in cinque Terre. The rental gave us an automatic but we should have insisted to have a manual. Pierpaolo helped us leave at 5:00am which was very kind. He helped us with the car, but he too had trouble with the manual. We enjoyed our stay and the location very much. The views from the blue trail were unbelievable. We wished we had more time!
De ontvangst was erg hartelijk. Pierpaolo spreekt goed engels. En hij geeft je alle informatie die je nodig hebt. Tijdens ons verblijf kon je hem altijd iets vragen en was hij erg behulpzaam. De kamer is klein en eenvoudig maar meer heb je daar niet nodig want je leeft buiten in de tuin. Het uitzicht is erg mooi. Er is een kleine buitenkeuken waar je eenvoudige maaltijden kunt bereiden. Een prima locatie voor als je van wandelen houdt. Wij hebben het erg fijn gehad en zullen zeker terug komen.
This is my second time to be ín Cinque Terre, last year i went to stay at Manarola, and also had visited the other 4 villages. But this time i chose to stay at Prevo, Pierpaolo's Place in order to avoid all the turists, then, i can really tell you that I found out the real Beauty of Cinque Terre is here. I have to tell you that i felt like - love in first sight with this place. It has been amazing experience to stay at here. The veiw is stunning, the stillness of the sea at the night, the birds sing in the morning, the crackers sing in the day, the wind breeze, the garden with olive tree that i like to sit under to chili out from the hot weather, the nature there is such a relax and able to free my mind. With this reasonable price is really worth it. And i promise you that you can't find this in Manarola or down Town in Corniglia, or vernaza.....the stillness, the Peacefulness, the view like this is just here in this Place.
Pierpaolo is a very kind person that he offered to pink me up at the train station on the day i arrived. And he gave me very good instruction to the beach, gave me also good advice with this hot weather and he picked me up back to Prevo when one day was so hot and i was in Corniglia (as it would be very tough to walk up hill in 38 degree Celsius for 40 min). The room is very cute with a county style that i like it very much. Just to remember to bring your insect spray and good sun spray as the sun there is very strong on the top of the hill. Also, bring a good par of trainers/sneakers as you will have to walk on the hiking trail anyhow even though you drive a car or not. I like to hike in the morning and it took me 25 min walk to Corniglia.
The other thing i like at this Place is the kitchen included and so i can cook and use the salad from the garden, able to eat a good meal in the garden with this fantastic view is just a blessing!
I really strongly recommend this place and i would like to come back again.
Pierpalo was kind enough to pick us up at Carniglia train station and wait for us even though we missed one train and took one in the wrong direction. We really enjoyed the garden and the great view of the ocean. The room we had was not super comfortable, it was more a hostel room and it was very hot during the night. My advice: take a shower with the door open so you can enjoy a nice view on the ocean.
Dear Mickael, in our house people don't come for the room, but for ... all the rest ... :)
This is the ONLY accomodation along the Blue Path, in the HIGHEST spot of the Blue Path, at 208 m. above sea level.
If you prefer an hotel room was better that you book in La Spezia becouse here there are not hotels.
In this place is not possible to change nothing: it is an Unesco site!
So, like in Venice, we don't may touch nothing and the rooms are not large, it's true, but people don't come here for the rooms, everybody can have nice rooms, but here we have other, more important for many people, quite, amazing view, surrounded of nature ...
This place is for adventurous travelers wishing to explore this fantastic region on foot or by those who simply wish a quiet retreat to relax and unwind, our home is the piece of paradise they need!
Who prefer the room more confortable but with less view is better that they book in the village.
I repeat, this is the ONLY accomodation along the Blue Path, in the HIGHEST spot of the Blue Path, at 208 m. above sea level.
For hundreds people that stayed here this is the best place for them ... the bed? they don't remember if was a sofabed or a kingsize bed, but remember many other beautiful things.
I stayed in the heart of cinque terre with my parents for two nights of a full week stay in cinque terre. The view from the backyard was fantastic and Pierre Pablo came and picked us up at midnight to deliver us to the property. However, we were a little disappointed with the size of our room, the place was very small and consisted of a double below and single above bunk bed, not really appropriate for an adult with his parents. There was a fan in the room, but no air conditioning in either our room or the additional room for other guests. The host was very accommodating and helpful with advice. Perhaps this place would be better suited to backpackers and a few photos of the insides of the rooms could have helped us understand the layout before booking. However it is a very unique location, has great views and the host was very helpful with advice.
Hi Callum, in my website you can see many pictures about the rooms and the sofabed.
Too, in my website, there is a page titled 'reccomendations' with wrote:
"Our house is in front of the sea, but it is surrounded by nature.
Life in the countryside has its own strengths and weaknesses.
We will do our best to make your stay in our house is as relaxing and comfortable as possible but if you do not like the rural life is better that you book your room in the village".
So, dear Callum, you can to see the address of my website after your confirmation of booking but maybe, or better is sure that you don't see my website, becouse there is write every things that you say now.
About luggage, for example, there is write that is better backpack, and not 3 trolley extra-super-size like yours.
About air-conditioning, too, where you read on Airbnb that in my house there is air-conditioning? There is not write!
Maybe you wrong something ...
Anyway, thanks for your visit, but for next time a suggestion for you: before to book please read the informations that airbnb send to you.
