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...
Other Things to Note
My grandfather and grandmother lived in this home and so my father... and I'm very glad to open it to all my guests...You will teste a part of Riomaggiore's way of life in an historical area...
Warm and charming welcome by the host. Central location in Riomaggiore. Great balcony, perfect place for preparing your own meal. As in whole Cinque Terre you need to be sportive, as a lot of stairs have to be climbed.
Maurizio was very welcoming and explained everything about the apartment and the area to us! He had great restaurant recommendations especially the fried seafood shop (Pescato Cucinato) and Dau Cila.
As for the apartment - it was great! Great location. Clean. Beautiful (but pretty small) balcony with a good view. Maurizio supplied plenty of towels dishes etc. There is no air conditioning but the apartment stayed cool (it was probably in the low 80s while we were there).
My only qualm would be that the mattresses were a little too firm, otherwise it was a great place with a great host!
Our experience in Maurizio's apartment was wonderful. Everything was clean and in good condition and it had a lovely view from the porch. We couldn't have asked for a better central location in Riomaggiore. It was also very convenient to the train which gave us easy access to other towns in the 5terre. Maurizio provided us with many recommendations. We tried a few and were very pleased with what he suggested !
Maurizio was very welcoming and helpful! He made great suggestions for restaurants in the area. The apartment was nice and had everything we needed for our short stay. Would love to stay here again in the future!
I had an amazing experience staying at Maurizio’s gorgeous family home for 4 nights. It is in the best location, it’s very clean and had touches of his family’s heritage throughout each floor. Before my trip I had learned that Andrea Bocelli would be having a 10th anniversary concert in Pisa during my stay in Riomaggiore. So I asked Maurizio about the possibility of a trip to attend the concert – not only did he explain my options on getting there – but once I’d decided on using a transfer, he then took the time to help me search for competitive pricing for transfers in the area. I ended up getting a great price and got to the concert safely and on time. What an amazing experience! It made my entire trip to Italy so much more special. I really appreciated all of his help. I can’t wait to return for a longer visit to Riomaggiore – I will definitely stay at his apt again. Grazie Mille Maurizio!
Our time in Cinque Terre was a PERFECT way to end our Italian vacation. The apartment made us feel like real Italians. The location was right off of the main street and the terrace was the best way to enjoy an evening glass of wine or a morning coffee. Maurizio was a perfect host and the apartment was so clean and well cared for. A wonderful home away from home in the most beautiful setting ever. I would rent this beautiful apartment again for an escape to one of our favourite parts of Italy. Thank you Maurizio for such a wonderful place and for being such a great host.
Fantastic location and beautiful house. Clean and neat. It has everything you need for a wonderful holiday in Cinque Terre.
Maurizio is a fantastic host. Easy going, great communicator, warm and welcoming. I even learnt how to make a proper Italian coffee from him.

About the Host, Maurizio

Condivido le mie esperienze di guida turistica e del settore ricettivo, donando agli ospiti che ci visiteranno i migliori consigli sulla zona e la ristorazione, facendoli sentire partecipi di un passato e di un presente che si respira ovunque nelle Cinqueterre. Desideriamo che gli ospiti possano portare con sé un ricordo piacevole delle loro giornate trascorse in questi borghi e che qualcosa di particolarmente speciale li accompagni nel loro ritorno a casa per condividere poi con altri questa esperienza unica. Gli appartamenti sono strutture donateci dalle nostre rispettive famiglie, nonni e genitori. Con la storia che esse trasmettono vogliamo così accogliervi nel migliore dei modi.
