We stayed in Il Timone Lerta (also in Monterosso/same owner - different property). It is a beautiful B&B at the top of an extra 100+ step climb - the views were worth every step! Francesco is the owner and was so welcoming, along with Frederika who, together with Francesco's mother, served the most amazing breakfasts each morning out on the... More

You get everything you could ever want from a Cinque Terre hotel - great service, wonderful, quiet and clean room, great location and beautiful views! My husband and I arrived in Monterosso (which by the way, we highly recommend as your home base for any visit to the Cinque Terre) and met Francesco at the Fast Bar which is on... More

I think this was the cleanest and best maintained B&B/Hotel we ever stayed at. You could see how every attention to detail was considered in the furnishing, bathrooms and common areas. The breakfast was on the Terrace overlooking Monterroso and cooked to order by Francesca's wonderful family. We had just left a 4 star hotel prior to coming here and... More

We originally planned to stay for two nights, but the experience was just so overwhelming that we booked an additional night. Francesco, the host is a very pleasant, hard-working, accommodating young man. After meeting him at the Fast bar, he escorted us to our room in such a leisurely fashion so as to give us pointers on what to see... More

This review is for Il Timone Lerta - the owners have two properties with similar names in Monterosso al Mare. The property is in the "old town", about 10 minutes walk from the train station. As they warn you on the website, Il Timone Lerta is only suitable for people who can handle about 100 stairs up to the property.... More

We stayed at Il Timone Lerta for 2 nights in May 2015 and everything was just perfect! The hosts (Francesco and his family) were very kind, lovely and helpful. Our room (Pinta) was beautiful and spotless, we really enjoyed rich and wonderful breakfast on the terrace with a beautiful view of the old town. The hotel is located in a... More

This B&B is immaculate, lovely, comfortable and inviting. The host Francesco, his wife Frederica and his mother make this a perfect home away from home. The adventure begins by meeting Francesco at his restaurant "Fast Bar." A little dicey was my initial thought, but he was so gracious and works so hard, that you understand why this is a good...

Freancesco, his wife and mother were exceptional hosts. We always look back with great memories on our time there. It's been awhile since I have been (3 years - May 2012) but I wanted to share how amazing this place is. If you are looking for the Cinque Terre experience, this is it!

We stayed in Il Timone Lerta from 2 April - 8 April. Il Timone Lerta is the property high up in the old town and has 3 rooms. The building is immaculately decorated and furnished and the charming hosts, Francesco, Frederico and lovely Mum, have thought of everything, down to the last detail. Torches for the not too dark steps... More

This place is amazing, from someone that has been to Monterosso before and didn't want to go back because of the amenities, this place and the owners have truly changed my mind. Everything was great, we were total 4 people so we had 2 rooms. For the first 2 days we "owned the place" like Frederica put it, and we... More
