The listing is very accurate and the past reviews say it all about the roof deck and the views - stunning.
A few things to be aware of:
- There are 3 markets very close by so it's easy to buy food to eat at home. But the markets are at the bottom of the hill and you are at the top:).
- As others have said, you are going to Cinque Terre to hike so don't be surprised by the number of stairs to get to the apartment (the view doesn't come for free!).
- The Via Amore trail is the easiest way to hike to the next village and it is closed (it says until April 2016). There are many other means of transport to get around (trains, buses, boats), but hiking is not easy due to this trail closure. This was a disappointment to us as we wanted to hike.
- The WC is not on the same floor as the bedrooms therefore, when nature calls, you must climb stairs. It's not a problem, it's just a little inconvenient in the middle of the night.
The apartment is spacious and the roof deck is amazing. You can see the town, the hills, and a huge expanse of water. Efficient kitchen with every coffee device, nice windows with great views, and good exercise going up and down the stairs.
We had an amazing experience staying here! Carolina was wonderful to work with, and very responsive. Initially, in planning our trip, I couldn't find availability in Cinque Terre due to peak season. Carolina was flexible when I adjusted our dates and even made an exception when I requested a shorter stay than the usual minimum. I'm so glad she did! I feel like we had the best accommodations there! Even though there isn't any AC, the breezes are amazing and there are fans in every room. We were never uncomfortable in the heat of summer. We LOVED the terrace, took advantage of the washing machine, and the living space was great for our group of 4. Simone escorted us to our apartment and gave us great recommendations for restaurants we thoroughly enjoyed. After visiting the other cities in Cinque Terre, we were so pleased we chose to stay in Riomaggiore since it was not as busy with tourists compared to the others. The location of the apartment is perfect with everything in walking distance. I highly recommend staying here!
Vi bodde i Carolinas leilighet i 6 dager og vi hadde et flott opphold. Både lelighetens plassering og innhold oppfylte all forhåndsoppgitt informasjon. En glimrende base å utforske Cinque Terre og selve Riomaggiore fra - og en fantastisk takterrasse både å starte dagen fra og senere trekke seg tilbake til for å slappe av på! Kjørte selv motorsykkel til området og det var uproblematisk å finne parkering i utkanten av byen og ikke langt fra leligheten.
Takk til Carolina og Mr. Simone for å være utmerkede verter som informerte godt og nyttig både før og under oppholdet. Kommer mer enn gjerne tilbake igjen!
Terrific location for our stay in Cinque Terre, we easily visited all five towns Breathtaking views. The suggestions of restaurants in town were spot on. We'd love to visit again.
Couldn't be happier with the experience of staying in this beautiful apartment. There are views in every room...even in the bathroom as you get ready you can enjoy the breezes and view of the sea!
We had two couples stay and it was very comfortable and clean.
Carolina was very attentive and helpful through the whole experience from booking all the way to check out. When we come back to Riomaggiore we would definitely stay here again! Thank you Carolina!
Beautiful apartment, gorgeous view. The pictures don't really do it justice—it's really breathtaking. We just had a wonderful stay in Riomaggiore, touring with our two boys around Cinque Terre. The apartment is perfectly located: close enough to town so that it's not too much of a walk, and far enough away from the town center so that noise from the nightlife on Friday and Saturday night won't keep you awake (if you shut the windows). We particularly loved the terrace on the roof, and had our evening wine and Campari up there every night. It says in the review that there are lots of stairs, and they aren't kidding! Be prepared for some climbing in this town!
Carolina and Mr. Simone were great hosts, very gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!
