We stayed in the 'Santa Maria' room on our 25th anniversary. Francesco's mother cooked a breakfast to order of eggs, fruit, yogurt, juice and pastries. The three days we stayed there were the best we had in Italy. We needed laundry done and Francesco's mother helped us out with it. She's the most amazing hostess we met in Italy. Francesco... More

Il Timone was our first stop on our 8-day trip through Italy. The location was in a great spot (in the middle of old town), the room was clean and nice, and the breakfast was probably the best we had the whole trip. Enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace while Francesco's mother makes you some of the tastiest scrambled... More

Located in Monterosso al Mare, Cinque Terra, this romantic B&B was wonderful. The rooms are nicely appointed with modern bath facilities. Each morning you are served a full breakfast on the open top terrace, which is breathtaking. A short walk takes you to sightseeing, shopping, and many quaint restaurants. The hospitality that Francesco and Federica extend only adds to the... More

We are repeat visitors to this wonderful place. It is a special place. The rooms are very nice, the staff is excellent, the breakfast is wonderful. We love the location. The exercise we get climbing the stairs to our room is always welcomed. The view from the roof is great. The owner is great and very helpful.

Il Timone was a wonderful, small (very small) hotel. Francesco and Frederica met us in town and helped us get the,luggage up 80+ steps to the property. The rooms were great--quiet, comfortable and well-appointed. Frederica served us a lovely, tasty breakfast (prepared by Francesco's mother) each morning on the rooftop. Francesco gave us a really nice into diction to the... More

My wife and I recently stayed here during part of our honeymoon and this was among the highlights of our trip! Breakfast on the terrace each morning was perfect, the room (and wifi) was everything we could have asked for. But more than anything else, the service was beyond expectation! Frederika met us in town to walk us up and... More

My wife and I stayed in Il Timone Loreto for three nights. It was definitely a highlight of an amazing holiday. Francesco, the owner, made us feel very welcome and treated as us friends. He was very helpful with recommendations for hikes, restaurants etc. He also owns a very nice sports bar down the road where we watched the rugby... More

We were so impressed with our recent stay at Il Timone Camere! The rooms were new, clean and tidy and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The free WiFi was excellent. Our hosts provided two new bottles of water in the room's fridge every day and gave us maps, train and boat timetables on our arrival. Breakfast on... More

We stayed two nights in early September with our best buddies and could not have been more pleased with our choice of village or accommodations. Our rooms (Nina and Pinta) were clean, bright and comfortable, each with air conditioning and a private bathroom. Francesco and Frederica met us upon arrival at the Fast Bar in the old section of Monterosso,... More

This was my first trip to Italy, my friend's first trip overseas, ever. We were hoping for a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we got it! This was entirely due to our wonderful experience staying at Il Timoneloreto. Francesco and Augusta made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived in Monterosso, even though we were extremely late for check-in due... More
