Host (Antonella) will welcome you and give you all information you will need during your stay. Rooms are clean and well enough equipped. Breakfast is simple and it is the only thing that can get better. There is a parking for 5 to 6 cars. Use it and don't leave your car on the other side of the road. She... More

Antonnella did everything to secure an amazing stay!. From the fresh baked croissants every morning to the fresh fruit....All was divine. The rooms were spacious although the bed was a bit hard and the pillows very flat. That can be overlooked because the location and the attentiveness was so great!. A heavenly place with very nice quality guests.

Il Saraceno is a quiet nicely outfitted hotel (only six rooms), out of the crowds on the Cinque Terre coast, in a village called Volastra. Good breakfast and great hostess in Antonella. It is on the bus route to Manarola, or you can take the walking track to Manarola or Corniglia. We did the track down to Manarola (some rough... More

We only stayed one night but wished it had been more. The host, Antonella, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. She made us feel very much at home. The hotel location is not in the thick of things, but we liked it that way. Volastra is about a 20 minute downhill walk to Manarola and if you don't... More

If you are going to Cinque Terre, look up this hotel. It is locate in Volastra, just a few km above Manarola, one of the five towns that comprise CInque Terre. It is in a quiet location away from the busy towns on the ocean. What makes this a great place is the proprietor, Antonella. She is a bundle of... More

We drove to Cinque Terre and looked for a place that would allow easy parking and luggage transfer. Hotel Saraceno met both requirements. We were able to keep the car behind the hotel gate and the luggage was not a problem...just up a single flight of stairs. The hotel was spotless and breakfast was a treat with delicious homemade croissants... More

Antonella,the lady who runs this lovely hotel, is quite possibly the hardest working woman in Italy. She never stopped trying to make sure everything was just right for her guests. The hotel was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The public areas were very welcoming, and you felt like you were at home. The breakfasts were great, and Antonella made dinner... More

Great little hotel and the lady of the house couldn't be more helpful. Just a pity that the last bus up the hill is 7.45pm, but still wouldn't put anyone off staying in this little gem as the walk down to Corniglia in the morning was fantastic.

We found this cosy little hotel nestled amongst the tiered vines and Olive groves in the little village of Volastra Italy. The perfect location to explore the 5 picturesque fishing villages that make up the Cinque Terre. The host was terrific, speaking good English and giving us all the local knowledge on the best way to get around. The hotel... More

Situated high on the mountain very close to the Cinquaterra coastal villages, this hotel is nice and quaint, very clean and a good place to stay I the area. The owners are warm and helpful, overall a pleasant stay.
