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

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
