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

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
