While backpacking through Northern Italy and Switzerland, we had a wonderful 5 night stay at Sole Terre Mare. The view was absolutely gorgeous and we loved making dinner in the apartment and eating on the balcony. This was the perfect relaxing stay. We loved staying in Corniglia as it was quieter than the other villages.

Mare was amazing. We looked at accommodation in the 5 villages and narrowed it down to Corniglia for the quiet and less commercial appeal. When we chose Mare, it was for what we hoped to be a good view! When we walked in with Miss Rossi, WOW! The view exceeded our expectations. Ms Rossi was great to welcome us and... More

I would recommend Corniglia and the one bedroom apartment for everyone! We spent 3 night there, so we had time to visit all the 5 main villages of Cinque Terre and if I came back, I would choose Corniglia again. Not just because it is in the middle but it is also the less crowded by tourists, which gives a... More

First off, you do NOT need a car in the Cinque Terra - unless you have plenty of time and nerves of steel. It took us a nail biting one hour to drive from La Spezia to Corniglia versus 15 minutes on the train! We parked the car and then walked into the village to meet Eleonora at the appointed... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Sole Apartment and the Terra double room. Both were very comfortable and conveniently located not far from the center of Corniglia and just off the walking paths to the next villages. Eleonora was very friendly and accommodating and the apartments have a terrace with excellent views. Rooms have Air Con which was greatly... More

This was a great place to stay. The owner was VERY accommodating with extra things we needed, or questions we had. The town is nice and small. The apartments were very nice and with the unseasonable heat, the AC was definitely appreciated. Beds were comfortable and it wasn't too many steps from the apartment down into Corniglia for dinner and... More

4 years ago on a 3 week-long trip thru Italia, we stayed in the Mare apartment in Corniglia. We had such a wonderful experience with the apartment, Corniglia, and Eleonora that when we were booking our current trip, we emailed Eleonora. Luckily, the Mare apartment was available and it was every bit as wonderful as we remembered. Eleonora is a... More

Our recent trip to Italy had us stopping in Cinque Terre...Sole Terra Mare in Corniglia to be exact. This was a fabulous portion of our trip. We stayed in the Mare room, which has a kitchen, balcony with gorgeous views and multiple beds. (I preferred this to the Terra room downstairs; we were able to see it when we got... More

Don't let the stairs scare you or the fact this is a small town. One of the highlights of our Italian vacation was this room. Great location, great great price and very friendly owner. If you want a room that has that old world charm, not your normal hotel and clean compaired to others, this is your place. If we... More

After reading about the various Cinque Terre towns, I wanted to stay in Corniglia as it seemed to be the least crowded; it was the perfect choice for me. I stayed 3 nights in the Terra room and it was ideal -- wish I had planned for more time there! The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, had a small... More
