Situated on the panoramic road that from the train station leads to the main church, our apartment has splendid sea views and of the countryside. Due to its position you are within walking distance to the beach, marina, center of town where all types of shops and stores are located as well as from the train station where the famous Via del Amore that connects Riomaggiore to Manarola is located.

The apartment has a bedroom with a queen size bed, a comfortable armchair, air conditioning, lots of closet space, t.v.,; bathroom with shower and a hairdryer; living room with a sofa that pulls out to be an extra bed and can easily accommodate other 2 persons; a fully equipped kitchen with all the necessary items (cookware, glassware, silverware, plates, etc.) for some light cooking along with a table and chairs. Free Wi-Fi is available in the apartment. There are a total of 5 double-paned windows in the apartment 3 of which look out onto the countryside and the sea and 2 overlook the stairs that lead to the Castle.  The main street of Riomaggiore, where all the stores, pizzerias, snack shops, bars and restaurants are located is no more than a 5 minute walk.  The marina/beach and the train station are all within close reach of the apartment (no more than 8 minutes on foot).

This apartment is very spacious and extremely well kept and clean. The views from the windows are amazing. It is in the upper part of town, therefore very quiet and away from the business of the main area. We enjoyed the walk up and down, though you have to be quite fit to do it with a heavy suitcase! All in all a great place to stay, particularly as Riomaggiore is not as busy as the other towns in the Cinque Terre. We hope to return.

Ciao Inez and Keith, thanks so much for your taking the time in writing a review -- we appreciate it and we want to thank you for your kind words. Thanks also for your private feedback to us and from now on in we will be giving our clients the option of having a second set of keys (thanks for that advice). The receipt we issued to you was issued for the exact amount that Airbnb reimburses us -- we can only issue a receipt for the value we will be receiving (can't make it out for more). Hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again the next time you come to the 5 Terre. Warmest Regards, Maddy & Franco

Great place. Maddy was very helpful. Nice view of the houses one way and the water the other when you look out the window. There are lots of stairs from the main street so wouldn't be good for someone with trouble walking but it suited us well. The TV didn't work but we probably shouldn't be watching it anyway. Would definitely recommend this place to friends. Really enjoyed the lounge room/ kitchen

Thanks so much Matilda for taking the time in writing a review and glad to hear you enjoyed our accommodation. Riomaggiore, as well as all the towns in the 5 Terre, hug the cliffside so stairs and hills are inevitable In these towns. Hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future. Maddy & Franco

This place is absolutely stunning! The view is unreal, the location is just far enough away from the restaurants that all you hear at night is the ocean, but close enough to everything that you are never more than a few min away from where ever you are trying to go. We loved staying here in Riomaggiore, highly recommend!

It was our pleasure having you both with us. It was unfortunate that the a/c unit broke down just 2 days before your arrival and I should have sent you a quick note about that. Hopefully we can host you again the next time you are in the area. Regards, Maddy & Franco

Maddys apartment is exceptional; location, views, and the apartment itself is gorgeous. Everything the photos promise and more. It is very well appointed and Maddy made time to meet us, talk us through Riomaggorie, the CT and answer all our questions. We hope to be back. If you get the opportunity to book this apartment, do so!

I am an American expat now living in the 5 Terre. My husband, who was born and raised in Riomaggiore, and I love to travel, listen to music and just enjoy life. He's a retired (early retirement) chef who loves to doodle with his backyard projects and I love to read (when I get the chance) and gardening. We both run the B&B as well as the apartments we rent and love to meet people from all over the world -- we never tire to hear other people experiences. We look forward to meeting you and to making your stay with us a memorable one.
