The location of this property is amazing. The views from the window of the room and from the upper level balcony were stunningly beautiful. The service, however, was not great. We arrived on a Sunday, and had been given instructions on how to let ourselves into the building. We did, and that was fine, and we saw our host the... More

The location is unbeatable and the owner was extremely helpful in all aspects. There is a million dollar view....no make that 10 million dollar view from the terrace. Yes there is a climb up the hill to the apartment but you are on a mountain...they all have climbs! The apartment was modern, clean and good value for the location. We... More

My wife and I stayed in the room called Mea for two nights in October 2013 and it was awesome. The deck up top is absolutely breathtaking. We would settle in up there after a long days hike for wine with the sunset. The room is simple, yet everything we needed. The window from this room really offers an amazing... More

Deborah really doesn't need another awesome review! However she deserves one, my husband & I stayed 6 nights in Mea room in September 2013, breath taking views, both from our bedroom window & from the fabulous community terrace. Sunsets are to die for, & best served with a glass if wine. Bathroom was very different, but in a good way,... More

On our 2 week trip to Italy in October 2013, Manarola was our favorite stop. We spent 3 nights at Arpaiu, and we regret that we didn't plan to stay longer. Deborah was the perfect innkeeper with great suggestions for things to see in the area, dining recommendations, train reservations, etc. The village is small, but has so much atmosphere.... More

2 couples stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013 on our 16 day self guided tour of Italy, Manarola was my wife's favorite stop on the vacation. Arpaiu is an incredible value in this wonderful fishing village, The views are worth so much more than the nightly fee. Wine on the deck at sunset was incredibly romantic. Booking and... More

Truly wonderful stay in the studio in mid October. Very sleek design, comfortable bed, large windows for views out to the sea and north potions of 5 Terra. Look for the hardware crucifix at the end of Belvedere and you know you've found it.

We stayed at Arpaiu for 4 nights in September, 2013. The directions on the website to reach Arpaiu sound basic but if you trust and follow them you'll get there. We stopped to ask some older Italian ladies who were knitting as we weren't sure we were on the right track after turning right. Although they spoke no English they... More

Staying in this guest house was the highlight of our 2 week European trip. We paid much more in other cities for smaller, poorly furnished rooms that didn't have a view. We stayed in the Mea room and the view was incredible. The bathroom was also brand new and huge. However what really made our stay was the rooftop terrace.... More

We stayed here for four nights recently and enjoyed our stay a lot. We stayed in the Ordina studio in the house next door but had a key to use the community lounge and terrace which was quite lovely. Debora was easy to deal with and quite helpful. This was one of the best places we have stayed in Italy... More
