It is a lovely appartment located in the centre of Monterosso al Mare, 1 minute far from the beach as well as from the pubs and the restaurants. It has a kitchen, a bathroom with a very handy shower, a sitting room, a bedroom with a double bed that has also a balcony with a gorgeus view of the sea and of the beach, and upstairs there is a mansard with 3 single beds, two of them can be out together to make a double one.
The apartment is very bright and it has a very nice Italian style, its location is really great because you do not have to take any buses.
We had a wonderful stay at Illaria’s in Monterosso. The apartment is in a great location in the heart of town, an easy 5-10 minute walk from the train station (Illaria and Elena provided detailed directions which got us there first go without any trouble).
The apartment is fully self-contained with all you need (kitchen, cooking utensils, washing machine, iron, etc) and Illaria and Elena very kindly left a welcome kit consisting of fresh juices, cured meats, olives, cheese and eggs. There is a double bedroom and an upstairs mezzanine/loft with single beds (just watch your head on the roof!).
We booked our stay in Monterosso without doing much research and, after visiting the four other towns, were glad we selected Monterosso as it appeared to be the most “gentrified” of all five and had a fabulous range of reasonably priced, good quality restaurants.
La ringrazio molto Illaria e Elena!
Could have more views in the living room - we didn't intend on staying home much... But we're hit with a storm so were forced too... But if out & about this is not a problem...
Smaller than me expected
The location of this place is amazing! The views from the deck are stunning. The only downside is the upstairs isn't really big enough for adults and there weren't any proper blankets for the bed so a little chilly.
Apart from that had a lovely stay. Even lots of treats left for us so we didn't go hungry when we arrived and had plenty for breakfast the next morning, was very yummy!
This apartment was perfect for us (4 adults and one toddler 18 months) at Monterosso in the Old Town. Fantastic position, with only a 2 minute walk down one flight of steps into the main square and beach. The Monterosso train station is in the New Town and is about a 5-10 minute walk.
My partner and I stayed in the mezzanine floor, with our son in the cot (provided) and we had plenty of room to spread out all of our luggage. The air conditioning was great, and was definitely needed in the heat.
All linen was provided, the apartment very clean, and the kitchen very well stocked (pots and pans) etc. for home cooking.
Our friends stayed in the double room, with a balcony (with a great view) and enjoyed their stay too. The only thing to be aware of is because of the close proximity to the main square, it was a little noisy, but that's to be expected I think. It was much quieter on the mezzanine level.
Overall, we all had a great stay and would definitely stay again. Great value too!
Great location near beach. Upstairs has lower roofline so adults have to watch their heads upstairs. A/C great!
Really in the center of Monterosso,
nice little apartment with personal furnishing
everything worked fine.
Thank you very much.
We loved staying at Ilaria's apartment. It was absolutely ideal for the 3 of us. We had one time when there was no hot waterr and Ilaria responded to our text straight away. A great place and a great host. Thanks Ilaria for a wonderful stay.
