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

Our family of 4 (2 sons aged 11 and 19 years) recently stayed in two rooms at Il Timone Lerta in the lovely old town of Monterosso. We met our host at the Fast Bar (easy to find on the left heading along the main street of Via Roma). Francesco gave us a wonderful orientation to the area as he... More

Mid Sept 2014-We stayed at Il Timone Loreto Cavalluccio above the post office in the old part of the town of Monterosso. We LOVED the location -a short walk to restaurants and the beach. Francesco and Frederica were very welcoming and helpful. Francessco provided train info/links/suggestions on trains to the area prior to arriving in Monterosso. When we arrived he... More

Franceso, Frederica, his mom - the whole experience was just awesome. When we arrived in Cinque Terre we fell in love and knew that we wanted to stay two nights instead of three. We changed our itinerary and Francesco was super accommodating....even moved us into a larger room! :) His mom came over and cooked us breakfast on the rooftop... More

When I started to inquire about rooms in Monterosso for our Sept. trip, I received many , "Sorry, we are full" replies. So when I received a positive response from Il Timone, I was so relieved, I didn't really pay much attention to it's location or the reviews. Well, I got lucky. Il Timone Lerta is a gem. Frederica, Francesco... More

Just spent 5 nights at Il Timone Lerta and can not praise it enough. Yes, there is a walk up to the accommodation but it's worth it. Every single detail has been thought out here, from the provision of beach towels to the complimentary limoncello for guests to sample. The accommodation has been designed and decorated to a very high,... More

My mum and I just got back from 4 nights at Timone Lerta and we had the best time. The little hotel is excellently located at the top of Monterosso’s old town, so its very quiet and the views are fabulous. Well worth the steps up. The rooms are cute with comfy beds and a great shower, and they’re cleaned... More

Third time staying here in recent years. Exceptionally friendly service from Francesco's Mum and particularly Frederica in our B&B. Everything you would want is there, Wifi, their own mini-laptop if you don't have your own, Air Con, Satellite TV, comfortable beds, lovely breakfasts, clean rooms and excellent service, with rooms cleaned daily. Hence our tendency to return here every year.... More

My family and my finance traveled to Monterosso for 3 days last week. There were 5 of us and we stayed at the Loreto location in the old town section of Monterosso. We rented all 3 of their bedrooms at this location so had the whole place to ourselves. Every room has a tv, air conditioner, refrigerator, and had great... More

Il Timone is actually two different properties in Monterosso, Loreto and Lerta, both located in the old part of town but the former inland towards the road (above the post office) and the latter on the hillside overlooking the main plaza and close to the water. We spent one night at Loreto and two at Lerta. Loreto is essentially a... More
