This B&B is located in the center of Monterosso near the beach/shops and restaurant of this lovely village. Nicoletta, the host received us wit open arms and offered us fruits and a bottle of Prosecco on the beautiful terrace of the guest house. Also he breakfasts were amazing and different every day of our stay. The rooms are simple, clean... More

4 rooms on 1st floor of building hard to find as tucked away from main street. Close to sea and all shops and restaurants. 5 min walking from parking multi storey (2 levels) but when you arrive by train the taxi is paid for by the B&B. Lovely walk to Vernazza and around Monterosso. Some rooms very small with tiny... More

From the time Nicoletta met us at train station until we departed, staying at LaPoesia was the best. Every morning we had a traditional Italian breakfast. When I couldn't come to breakfast it was delivered to my door. Nicoletta is a wealth of information of things to do in and around Monterosso. She treats you just like you are her... More

Nicoletta was very friendly and such a good cook! Her omelettes are awesome. The room was nice and we enjoyed the terrace one evening as well. Nicoletta was very knowledgable and gave us the train schedule and suggested itineraries and places to eat which all turned out great! Thanks much to her. I recommend this B&B if staying in Monterosso.

We just wanted to comment on how amazing Nicoletta, the owner of this property is. SHE is what makes the place special. She was waiting for us at the train station for our arrival and arranged a taxi to take us to her place (which isn't too far away in the center of town) - this was so appreciated after... More

Our hostess at this lovely and quaint B&B is delightful and she totally made the experience special for me. She is a dynamo!! The B&B has been totally renovated and updated, as this is the home where our hostess Nicoretta was born...as was her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Nicoretta knows EVERYONE in Monterossa, and will direct you to the best... More

Old towns with minimal choice of up to date hotels. This is a 4 room B&B but the owner makes you feel like you are the most important guest she ever had. Parking is a problem in Monterosso and the only parking garage is outside the vehicle access area. We got the last space and it was just after lunch... More

Our stay with Nicoletta at La Poesia was truly delightful. From the moment we exited the Train Station to find a taxi, arranged by Nicoletta, until our departure, our hostess did everything she could to make our stay in Monterosso the best it could be. Upon arrival at La Poesia, Nicoletta provided us snacks and Prosecco while she gave us... More
