Fabrizio seemed genuine and he was friendly to us whenever we met. He kindly gave us advices on the area and recommended restaurants. He also was responding promptly and was letting us know he is there for us if we need him. About this house: make sure you are aware there is no Wifi as well as the signal for mobile data is weak so you will be actually having time to enjoy your holidays. What we liked was the fact that the building looked like an old fortress and had a bit of a special feel. On the other hand, it is secluded and you are not able to reach it with your car directly, but you will have to leave the car on the main road and walk down the hill to reach the house - the path is not paved. Luckily there was no rain but probably is not very convenient after it is wet. The room was the right size for two people. Bed was comfortable. Shower was great, although very basic. Don't be surprised once you turn off the light when you look up the ceiling: you will see stars above your head (as the owner wanted to add this extra touch-and it worked well with this glow in the dark colors) The issue we had, was there was a big humidity in the room-once you open the windows it is a bit better. Also a few bugs we had to remove before to go to bed - on the windows there is a net to prevent insects to come in but some managed to sneak in apparently. Also location maybe not ideal for us-would prefer house that is not in the hill area and surrounded with narrow roads. I am writing this review a bit torned: because we felt welcomed at this house and would love to give Fabrizio excellent review as he put his heart into this house, on the other hand i am guessing it is not for everyone. So keep this in mind-it's special.

The room was wonderful! Clean and spacious. We were able to use the kitchen to cook our meals. We did rent a car to get to the location although it was safe to park on the road beside the house. We would stay there again!

Fabrizio was very helpful from the very first to the very last minute. He gave a valuable advice on the area, transport, etc. etc. which made our stay even more enjoyable. The property itself is perfect for those who want to get away and feel closer to the nature. Having said that, furnishing and all the amenities are of excellent quality and the bed is fantastic.

This was by far the most impressive place we've stayed during our trip. It's an old fortress in the mountains! What more is there needed? It's clean, comfortable, etc... I cannot recommend this enough. Our host was very friendly and helpful in giving us info on visiting Cinque Terre. We had such an amazing time. Stay here! I would highly recommend contacting him for driving directions on how to get there. It's a little tricky.

Très bons conseils de la part de Fabrizio pour visiter les cinq terres. Il nous a conseillé un restaurant à notre arrivée qui était parfait et à même pris le temps de faire la réservation pour nous. Le logement était conforme aux photos et au calme.

I like to receive guests in my house. I like to tell them about the legends we have. Infact I wrote a book, and I'm writing another regarding these beautiful stories.
My motto is in Latin: "Praemium tuum habebis".
Our house is very fine and old. We have 6 rooms, each with private bathroom, some of them with jacuzzi bath-tube. Indeed the house was a small stronghold in ancient times, as you can see in the picture.
The house can be reach by car/motorcicle, and it is about 15 minutes from the motorway exit of Brugnato/Cinque Terre, and at about a half hour from the train station and the ferry dock in La Spezia for the Cinque Terre tour.
At 5 minutes by car and a half hour by foot there is a very fine and clean little lake on the river, where you can swim or relax on the sand beach.
The rooms are very particular, with kingsize canopy bed, and our prices are absolutely good.
I hope to have you here, so we will know each other, and you'll be able to feel the peace of this lovely place.
