Looking for high spec mod cons + a convenient location in Riomaggiore? Our recently renovated Mia studio is just steps from the Riomaggiore railway station and only 3 minutes walking from the village's historical center. Worried about noise from the train? Don't be. With the windows closed you'll hardly hear a thing. Our studio is located on the first floor so there are minimal stairs to climb. Staying here is a breeze! As hosts, we are locals & keen to share the best of our area with you.

The space
The Mia studio is a gem and our little hideaway, and it can be yours, too! The studio offers a queen-size bed, a kitchenette (with a mini fridge, double sinks, a gas stovetop and a small oven), a table and chairs for indoor dining, a colorful private bathroom with shower, A/C & heat, WiFi and a great little outdoor patio with a table and chairs where you can sit out and enjoy a glass of wine or your dinner "al fresco."

The village of Riomaggiore is divided in two sides: the modern side (where the train station is located) and the historical side (where the village's main street is located). These two sides are connected by a pedestrian tunnel. Our studio is on the modern side of the village, super centrally located to all the points of interest in Riomaggiore. Here are the estimated WALKING times:

-Via Signorini, the panoramic lane that winds around the village: 30 seconds (it's immediately outside the building's front door)
-Riomaggiore's train station: 1 minute
-Via Colombo, the village's main street where the majority of the shops & restaurants are located: 3 minutes
-Riomaggiore's marina (harbor): 5 minutes
-Riomaggiore's ferry landing: 7 minutes
-Riomaggiore's rocky & pebbly beach: 8 minutes

Our Mia studio offers the best of both worlds. It's perfect for those wanting to stay in a central location in the Cinque Terre but not wanting to sacrifice convenience or modern comforts.

Guest access
We have a few cupboards in the studio marked "private" where we keep our own belongings. We ask guests to please respect our privacy and to not open these cupboards. Not to worry, we make sure to leave plenty of cupboard space for guests to store their own belongings.

Other things to note
While the studio is located within close walking distance to the train station the noise from the train is muffled by three buildings between the tracks and where the Mia studio is located. You can still hear some train noise but it is by no means ear piercing! If you are a light sleeper you might want to bring ear plugs. With that said, the studio is equipped with dual pane windows and A/C so if you are concerned with noise you can block most of it out by closing the windows and turning on the A/C (if need be).

Please note that the views from the windows in the studio are that of the patio and glimpses of the hillside (no sea views), but you are within super close walking distance to the sea.

Our local city government has imposed a "city tax" (known in Italy as "imposta di soggiorno"). The city tax is applies to those staying in Riomaggiore and the tax is €2 per person, per day (for max. of 3 days). You will need to pay this tax to us directly upon arrival, in cash (as we will then have to fill out the proper forms and submit the tax to city hall). We will also need to fill out your passport details upon arrival (as required by Italian law).

Riomaggiore, Liguria, Italy

The Mia studio is located on the modern side of the village, just one minute walking from the train station. The historical center is an easy 3 minute walk away if you take the pedestrian tunnel. The studio is located on the 1st floor of the building so there are minimal stairs to climb (and they are not nearly as steep as the stairs in the historical center). The building is home to many local residents and their families.
