Via Matteotti is a small typical street behind the main street via Colombo. It's a very quite place to stay and...for good sleeping...Really few meters far from the centre. The balcony has a wonderful view on the ancient part of Riomaggiore, to the green and the castle.
We are located in a very central area, near all the shops, restaurants, pharmacy, bars...

We just loved Maurizio's apartment and Riomaggoire. Maurizio met us at Bar Centrale and showed us to his apartment , explaining everything we should know for our stay in Riomaggoire. He provided us with maps of the town, train timetables and the best places to eat. This place has all that you need for a short stay. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend other travellers stay here too. It really is such a cute place and a great place to relax and enjoy the views. Thanks Maurizio.
Maurizio's place was excellent and he provided my boyfriend and I with everything we needed to make our stay fantastic. Mauricio had the apartment ready for us when we got there. The location was great, very close to everything and easy to get around in riomaggiore and all the 5 towns. The apartment was excellent, my experience couldn't have been any better!
Maurizio was amazing from the start, he met us at the entrance of the village, and guided us to where to park, then walked us to the apartment explaining transportation and pointing out good restaurants and shops along the way. The apartment was just as described, maybe even better. It was very clean, very beautiful and had all of the kitchen supplies you could need. Every kind of shop and restaurant is only a 2 minute walk away. I Would love to come back and stay here again.
Our stay in Cinque Terre was superb! Maurizio was there to greet us, gave us a warm welcome and helped carry our bags up the stairs to the flat. There stairs are steep but after staying a few days, we would rather be on the top floor with great views of the village than on street level where you will noise from tourists. The flat has everything you need, the bed is great, nicely decorated and loved spending nights on the terrace people watching! We visited all 5 towns and Riomaggiore is our favourite! Lots of restaurants, great walks and ocean views. You must go to the bar above the train station-great prices and all ocean front views!!! Truly breath taking! Our trip to CT was our highlight in Italy thanks to Maurizio's warm welcome (and goodbye) and the unique village that is most beautiful. monterosso and vernazza were a bit too tourist, Corneglia is a bit remote and while Manarola was our second favourite, you just can't beat Riomaggiore! You will not be disappointed. The photos you see are exactly what you get!
Nice apartment in town centre, bathroom was very small but everything was very clean and tidy. Lots of steps not ideal for heavy luggage. We had a car so it was difficult to get from car to appartment and return. Would have been easier if we came by train. Maurizio was the perfect host and helped with our luggage.
The apartment and Maurizio were amazing! I emailed him very last minute to say we had bumped up our arrival time and he was on the streets waiting for us so we wouldn't get lost. His hospitality was above and beyond. He gave us excellent food recommendations and made us feel perfectly at home. The apartment is great. Perfectly located, clean, bright, everything you could need. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!!! Thanks Maurizio!!!
Maurizio is a charming host, helpful tips that resulted in some yummy experiences. The place is a cute tower house, and we used the balcony each evening.
