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

It was a beautiful place perched away from the buzz but yet not too far to make it inconvenient! Cristina was very responsive in her mails and service and rooms were fantastic!The rooms were very clean and breakfast was great and served on a beautiful terrace with a sea view:) Will stay here if I visit Cinque Terre again !

Cristina was incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed 3 nights at Villa Cristina and were sad to have to leave. Only a 5 minute walk up the hill from the beach, 7 minutes from the train station and 10 minutes from Old Town. The view from the balcony is picturesque and view from our room was a lovely landscape of... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Cristina for two nights in May 2013. The house is up a steep road from the train station, but if you are coming to Cinque Terre to hike the trails, it's a good warm-up! There are only three guest rooms, and Cristina is owner and sole staff person. Therefore, be sure to communicate... More

We stayed for two nights at Villa Cristina, and rented out all three rooms as our party needed three rooms. We were very happy that we got this property. It was the perfect choice for us, especially since we needed three rooms. We had the whole place to ourselves. First of all, all the roms are sparkling clean. The property... More

Breakfast was poor - coissants (not fresh), yogurt, packet cereal, biscuits and fruit (kiwi, apple and banana all not ripe) but good choice of coffee's with breakfast. Do not go if have any special dietary requirements. Rooms are... More

We loved our stay here. Great room and great bathroom. Nice views from the balcony over the sea. The breakfast included a BEAUTIFUL breakfast pastry, yogurt, granola, and coffee. Cristina was very nice and helpful. She recommended some nice things. We really liked how clean and modern the rooms were. The only negatives are: the walk uphill without a sidewalk... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of October. Cristina is lovely, and gives lots of good recommendations for restaurants. Our room was quite small and basic, but adequate. The bathroom is nice. Could do with wifi, but otherwise no complaints. Price is ok. Unfortunately the coastal paths were closed when we were there, but ask around if... More

We had a lovely two night stay at Villa Cristina - the accommodation is very clean and comfortable and the air conditioning is wonderful after the hike uphill from the train station with cases and rucksacks! Cristina is a fabulous hostess and she gave us some great advice on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. We didn't have... More

Villa Cristina is a great little spot if you are looking for a quiet locale in Monterosso. We stayed at The B&B for three nights while touring Cinque Terre. The room we stayed in was very clean and had all the modern needs that one would require (tv, air conditioning, etc). The one thing missing is wifi. In order to... More
