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...

Ci siamo trovati benissimo! Maurizio davvero gentile e disponibile, ci ha fornito le indicazioni principali e assolutamente corrette per muoverci in poco tempo e per vivere al meglio Riomaggiore.
La casa è esattamente come nelle foto: accogliente e in zona strategica rispetto al centro di Riomaggiore e ai principali Ristoranti/negozi.
What an amazing apartment! The view from the balcony was phenomenal. The kitchen was well stocked, bathroom and shower clean, location perfect. No wifi, but we had a drink at the Centrale Bar and were able to use their log-in for correspondence to home. I recommend this apartment. A few stairs leading up to the front door, but it really is worth the trek. Maurizio was extremely helpful with places to eat as well! Just an FYI to North Americans, most places here prefer cash and the bank machines only accept Visa - not the interact Plus bank cards so bring cash if you are coming here. Gorgeous area, stunning views - loved it.
Friendly and welcome, Maurizio was a fantastic host. He gave us lots of wonderful recommendations for food and walks. Great location in town. The balcony was a fantastic spot to sit and have breakfast each morning and the apartment was very well equipped with everything you would need. Would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks again for a wonderful few days Maurizio.
The host was good with communication prior to our arrival. The deck was nice, but we didn't use it much as it was colder when we were there. Bedroom we stayed in was a good size, but the bed was hard. The apt is located in a good area on the main street as it's close to food and train walkway. The room we stayed in was poorly lit despite overhead lights and lamp, which made it difficult to see after sunset. The listing was not fully accurate as there was no wifi or washer in the apartment as advertised when booked.
It was a pleasure to host you.....but ... I don't list the washer and the wi-fi....! A lot of my guests loved the beds...and the room has four ( 4!! ) lights...and lamps...! So it seems so strange a review like yours....but I respect your opinion...Thanks, Maurizio.
Maurizio was a fabulous host, friendly and welcoming. The house was meticulously clean, comfortable and well equipped and Maurizio gave us an excellent introduction to the village and the facilities. The house is right in the centre of the village with a lovely view of the town but nice and quiet at the same time. Our only criticism would be that wifi was not available at the house, but was in nearby cafes. We would thoroughly recommend Riomaggiore and Maurizio's apartment and would love to come back and stay again one day. R & P Forrest
Maurizio was a fantastic host and his place was great! He met us, just as planned soon after we got off the train in Riomaggiore and led us to his apartment. It was right in the heart of town, a few minutes walk from the marina and the train station. It was the perfect place to allow us to spread out and truly feel comfortable for the duration of our stay. We even stayed in and cooked pasta with pesto one night. The walk up to the apartment from the main street does go up quite a few stairs, but stairs are just a way of life in the Cinque Terre. Also, the bathroom is a bit narrow, but certainly enough room for one person, and the shower was very nice. I'd highly recommend Maurizio's place and would gladly stay again when I come back!
Maurizio was a fantastic host! He was so friendly and welcoming and gave us lots of information and tips to help us get the most out of our stay. The house was beautiful and I didn't want to leave. Thanks again Maurizio I hope to come back again in the future :)
