Villa Cristina was ideally located for exploring Cinque Terre. Cristina was very accommodating and the room was quite spacious and lovely. I do recommend that people who stay here be physically able. There are lots of stairs and hills, which add to Cinque Terre's beauty. The location on Booking.com map and google maps is deceptive. It's higher up on the... More

My family and I had a wonderful time in Monterroso thanks in large part to Cristina and her lovely Villa. There's a bit of a hike up the hill to her place, but after all of the pasta and gelato it's a good thing! The rooms were clean and equipped with a mini fridge. The view from the balcony is... More

We booked two rooms and were pleasantly surprised to find that we also had a small terrace facing a garden and lemon trees and a balcony facing the sea on the opposite side. Nice setting for our first evening celebrating Cinque Terre with a bottle of Prosecco. Firm king size bed, bar fridge in each room, very clean and modern... More

In the beautiful land of Italy a lot of chaos and confusion can sometimes leave a negative mark on your vacation. This will NOT happen at Villa Cristina and I have to say I take my hat off to this young lady who has set a benchmark for B&Bs. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds extremely comfortable. The a/c... More

Villa Cristina is a small hotel with three rooms like rented rooms. The lady tha has the hotel is really friendly and the special was the breakfast that she was making for us everyday in a balcony that had very nice sea view. I would say not only for this but grnerally the rooms are quite expensive and maybe they... More

I cannot say many things for Villa Cristina... Honestly if i would ever make myself a family hotel business i would make it exactly like Cristina did... The rooms are brand new and they had everything that we wanted in perfect conditions. Bed excellent, Wi-fi signal excellent, Air-condition perfect, Bathroom perfect, Cleanliness perfect, Car parking just below perfect, Distance from... More

My wife and I stayed two nights and couldn't have asked for more. Christina met us when we arrived - showed us to our room and helped us find a place for dinner. Room was great - clean and everything you would want. The shared terrace has great views of the water. What topped it off was her breakfast in... More

Villa Cristina has lots of nice touches - a comfortable bed, crisp bedsheets, a good safe, an abundance of towels - but the main highlight has to be the scenic balcony where the simple, tasty breakfast is enjoyed (the coffee is very good). Cristina is a kind, attentive host who is always available. The accommodation is in a quiet location,... More

Great location- uphill a bit, but not too far, from the Monterosso train station and waterfront. Room was comfortable and clean. Cristina fixed a nice breakfast (for an additional cost) each morning, which we ate on the terrace, overlooking the sea. Her cat, Papatino, was an excellent host as well.

Our group of three couples reserved the three rooms at Cristina's villa for two nights in early October and we enjoyed our stay in the Cinque Terre area. Pros: The directions that Cristina provide are very good and she is a very good communicator, prior to and during the stay. We called her to let us know when we planned... More
