About this listing
Very accessible apartment in the center of the old side of Monterosso (Cinque Terre). Simple though with all conveniences, clean and in the middle of everything! Perfect for discovering the coastline of the Cinque Terre.
We are located in the center of the village yet on a residential side street so it is easy to feel part of the true community of Monterosso.
This charming apartment has one large bedroom, a living room/dining room with a pull-out (comfortable) bed that fits two, a galley kitchen (large fridge, 5 burner stove, pots, pans, etc.), an oversized shower and clothes-washer. English language books are on the shelves and plenty of tourist info is stocked for your use. We do have wi-fi in the apartment as well as complete cable TV in English (or Italian).
Around the corner are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, the most charming piazza in Monterosso, a grocery store and butcher. A delicious corner takeaway with homemade Italian dishes is right behind us. The beach is located 2 minutes walk away and the train station is in very close walking distance.
We also have a baby cot and sheets available for families.
Our apartment was constructed over 600 years ago (!) but we renovated it in 2000 and have continued to improve it since.
Please contact us with any questions you might have!
The apartment is your home during your stay and you will have access to the entire property. The apartment is fully equipped with tourist information and books, kitchen supplies, basic toiletries and ingredients, umbrellas, a beach umbrella, leisure books, and children's toys and books.
We usually have little to no face-to-face interaction with our guests. Most communication is done through email but we are always available in the case that you need assistance.
Our neighborhood is fantastic because even though it's in the heart of the historic center of the village, it's a residential area that is full of local character. Our road is pedestrian-only, lined with benches, so it lends itself to being an ideal congregation point for the street's older folks to have a chat in the afternoon. Our neighborhood more like a family and after a short time in the zone, you feel like you belong to it.
The easiest way to move around in Monterosso is by foot. Within a 100 yards of the apartment you have restaurants, bars, walking paths, a minimarket, the parish church and the beach.
Our apartment was our home for years and years and we've tried to maintain that feel- to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible for our guests.
Please be considerate of those around you.
Since the apartment is in a medieval center, buildings are very close to each other and sound travels easily!
If you do hang out clothes to dry from the window, make sure that you are not inadvertently blocking any doorways below.
Try and knock all the sand off your feet and clothes while you are still on the street so that it does not get brought into the apartment.
Please turn off all lights, including the outside hall light, when you are not in the apartment and while in the apartment, turn off lights in rooms in which you are not present.
We do clean the apartment after each set of guests but we always appreciate it when you leave it tidy to begin with! If you could please leave used sheets and towels near the washing machine, it would help us greatly. Thank you!
