Suite "Sweet" Josephine is a brand new space (bedroom, bathroom and living room - no kitchen) in a totally renewed house located halfway up the hill, just outside the center of Riomaggiore, with a breathtaking view over the village and sea, away from the noise. The room is washed in light. You will be surrounded by green, sleep with open windows to appreciate the breaking of the waves. You can enjoy the yard to read or doze in the shade, or have your aperitivo while the sun sets in front of you.

The apartment has a beautiful view over Riomagiorre and the sea. It is a fair hike up the stairs from the middle of town to the apartment, but definitely worth it for the view. The outdoor spaces at the apartment under the vines and on the terrace are lovely to escape the crowds…

This is a great place to stay. Up the hill (a good workout for your behind) climbing many stairs to the house. Very clean, the bathroom had lots of space for two people. Only issue was there wasn’t any soap and the temperature regulation was odd. It was very cold at night and the…

We are glad you found L’Anciua to be great place to stay. We wish you would have mentioned the soap and light blankets when we were together in garden trying the kumquats. There were extra down comforters and clean duvet covers located in the storage under the couch. We have now…

Lovely and clean apartment. Great view from the bedroom and little balcony out the side. Check in was very easy with someone meeting us at the train station and walking us to the apartment. I would definitely recommend a bag porter for €10 - well worth the money! It’s lots and…

This place was lovely. I could watch the sunset from my room and enjoy the views from the little table and chairs outside. The location was up some stairs from the town and the restaurants and harbour and station were all very close.

Paolo and Karen’s apartment is modern and beautifully presented with a great outlook. And yes there are lots of stairs, but, as we discovered, this is all just part of the Cinque Terre experience - be prepared for stairs whoever you go!

Beautiful, clean place with a wonderful view of the ocean and city below. Awesome sunset view from the room and cute garden! Everything as anticipated, smooth check-in and check-out process. It is quite a few stairs up from the main road; we used the porter service to get our…

A place to relax and enjoy Cinque Terre. Simple and clean, lovely gardens, and a great place to explore the region. Be ready to climb steps.
