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...

Apartment was fantastic. Great location and looked just like the pictures. Maurizio was a great host who replies to inquiries very efficiently and gave great recommendations for restaurants around the area.
Maurizio met us at Bar Centrale, as promised. We were right on time and he was waiting to greet us! The apartment is very charming and the terrace is awesome. This was the first stay on our honeymoon and it was the perfect mix of romantic and practical. The location is great, just a few steps away from the main street of Riomaggiore. There is no wifi, but Bar Centrale has wifi on all day just a few steps away. Overall, Maurizio was very welcoming and the apartment was perfect for us.
Maurizio was a perfect host. He gave us lots of information that was very useful, including the best places to eat and sights to see. He was very friendly and easy to get along with. Very communicative and easy to get hold of. The apartment was well appointed and comfortable for my family. We would use any of Maurizio's accommodation anytime.
Perfect location, perfect house. All house is yours. huge kitchen . Beatiful balcony. You ll love the balcony. Clean very clean. No wifi but you won't need wifi in cinqueterre. Thank you Maurizio your help and all info. Hope to see italy and your house again.
Maurizio was fantastic - he made us feel very welcomed. The apt. for 4 nights became our home and explored the 5 villages from there. Enjoyed the restaurants and the sea. The apt. was just the right size and we enjoyed our balcony very much. If you do not like stairs then stay in Monterosso otherwise Riomaggiore is the perfect location to be.
Maurizio was a wonderful host. He helped us park our car, carry our luggage on the steep stairs, and gave us instructions for the best restaurants in the area. On the day we had to leave, he met my husband early in the morning so my husband would not get lost on his way to the apartment. We cannot thank him enough for his generosity of his time. One warning, do not bring heavy luggage to Riomaggiore. The hills are very steep and so are the steps!
