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.
