This nice small studio flat is located in the very centre of Corniglia, at 20 metres from bus stop and next to the central square (restaurants, cafès) and 10 minutes walking from the seaside. Cute and fully equipped, it is perfect for a 3-4 days stay.
CORNIGLIA is the best starting point to hike the low coast walking trail to Vernazza (which is closed from Riomaggiore) and the nicest (and not too hard) of the higher trails, from here to Manarola through the terraced vineyards facing the water!
This cute studio flat has a very central location, just ideal to let our guests appreciate the true life of our small town. Its French window looking just over the most charming Street in town (one of the most popular sight in Corniglia), and the flowered ancient staircase to the house makes it perfect to enjoy the local atmosphere, quiet and lively at the same time.
This unit is cosy and nice and, although not extremely huge, it's spacious enough to be comfortale and relaxing. Besides, it is fully equipped with a true kitchenette, hoven, fridge, full crockery and electric kettle.
All linen (sheets, towels, table cloth etc.) is provided and, for weekly reservations, a midstay cleaning is included. Bathroom with bath tub (+hook&sprayer to be used as a shower) is equipped with hairdryer and all basic toiletries.
WASHING MACHINE is NOT IN THE UNIT, but in the BUILDING and the washing service is PAYING (as pointed out in the house rules).
For younger than four years children we can also provided baby-cots.
Interaction with guests
can speak English, French and Spanish rather fluently and I usually welcome my guests spending as much time as it's necessary to introduce them to our region and all leisure activity (sightseeing, walking, swimming etc.) that can be done here. I provide them with walking maps and updated trains and boats schedules. I've been working with hikers from all over the world for many years and I can suggest both true hikes through the most Amazing sceneries and beautiful simpler walks or town visits.
During my guests' stay I'm full time available and can be easily reached.
Other things to note
My husband and I are Cinque Terre wines producers. Our winery, named "La Polenza", is one of the biggest in the full area. We make local certificated White and red wines, especially the famous Sciacchetrà, a traditional dessert wine better known as "the nectar of gods" or simplier a "meditation wine". Therefore, it will be a pleasure to give to all my guests detailed information on wine-making in Cinque Terre as well as my advice&tips about best combinations between local wines and typical ligurian food.
What's more - last but not least! - our guests can directly purchase our wines from us.
TOURIST TAXES ARE ALWAYS INCLUDED IN OUR FULL RATES.
CHECK IN time is rather flexible, but my guests are kindly requested to get in touch a few days before coming to let me know their arrival time in Corniglia.
CHECK OUT must strictly be by h 10:30 on departure day. However, our guests can store their luggage in the house and leave it there as long as they need.
LAUNDRY service is available just on request and it will take 24 hours (due to air drying), which means that your laundry will be collected in the morning before h 10 and returned just on the following day by h 10-10:30. LAUNDRY full cost is 15 EUROS.
From Sep 18 - Oct 30, 2017 the minimum stay is 1 night.

sono Stefania, mamma di Giada e compagna di Lorenzo. Vivo a Corniglia e amo il mio lavoro. Mi piace conoscere persone che vengono da regioni e paesi anche molto lontani dall'Italia e hanno abitudini e usanze diverse. Adoro l'autenticità e gli spiriti liberi. Credo che viaggiare sia un'attività che arricchisce la sensibilità e la cultura sia di chi viaggia sia di chi entra in contatto con il viaggiatore, perché viaggiare significa essenzialmente scambiarsi esperienze! Amo le lingue straniere, e i miei studi linguistico-letterari mi hanno consentito di arrivare a parlarne fluentemente almeno tre (inglese, francese e spagnolo), e ritengo che il miglior modo di progredire nell'apprendimento delle lingue sia praticarle il più possibile. Quindi, vi avviso: se iniziate una conversazione con me, potreste non riuscire più a fermarmi!
my name is Stefania and I am Giada's mum and Lorenzo's wife. I live in Corniglia, where I rent out the units listed here and meanwhile I am a Cinque Terre wines producer - and I love both my jobs.
Actually, I like meeting people from different countries and areas, all with their own habits and customs. I really think that travelling enhaces sensitivity and culture of both the traveller and anyone getting in touch with him/her, since travelling means basically Exchange experiences!
I also love foreign languages and my university studies as well as my frequent contacts with people from all over the world have allowed me to speak English, French and Spanish rather fluently. I do think the best way to improve Language speaking is practising the most you can. So, be careful: if we start talking, you could not be able to stop me anymore!
