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.

I spent two nights in Il Saraceno with my wife and two kids. This family Hotel is very comfortable to visit Le Cinque Terre, because it is in Volastra, just up the hill between Manarola and Riomaggiore: a bus can connect you with the train station and the bus stop is in front of the hotel and you can leave...

Antonella is awesome. She has a nice property in Volastra, above Manarola. If you are driving, figure out how to make this your home base. Good host, good trails, good walks and good views from up high.

We stayed one night. The rooms are really spotless. The staff is extremity helpful especially if you've never been to this area. The price is reasonable. Small family environment. The breakfast was very complete . When I come back next I'm staying here.

We stayed three nights at the Il Saraceno during our visit to the Cinque Terre. This was the perfect place to stay away from the crowds and also because we had a car. There is a garage under the hotel for the car, as well as spaces in front to park. Our room was quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was... More

We climbed up to this tiny hill town, Volastra, from Riomaggiore. It is a good climb but watch out for the vineyard terraces. When we arrived we found the most spectacular views and the most comfortable town to walk around. We enjoyed a beer on the veranda and a wonderful nights sleep. The next day we walked back down to...

Pulled in recently on a Friday night off season without reservations and in the pouring rain and were greeted by what felt like sunshine when we walked through the entrance! Antonella could not have been more friendly! And there was a fire in the fireplace and a nice bar. The room was spotless and large, The bathroom is especially nice... More
