We really enjoyed our stay at La Poesia. Nicoletta is a charming host who, along with her friendly staff, could not do enough to try and make our stay as pleasant as possible. It is the little touches that make all the difference, like the free bottle of prosecco, Parma ham and local cheeses that were presented to us on... More

This little bed-and-breakfast is fabulous! My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights during our honeymoon and are so happy we found La Poesia. The rooms are small, but beautiful and comfortable. They all have air conditioning. We were greeted with a nice meal and bottle of champagne on the lovely outdoor patio when we arrived. The... More

We had a wonderful room that the proprietor was born in 53 years earlier. Nocoletta is the owner and is a wonderful warm caring person. She makes the best breakfast every morning. The location was also terrific and we found the room quiet but convenient to everything. I would recommend booking directly with her if possible.

A little hard to find but once we arrived and rang Nicoletta our wonderful host our great stay began. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and fruit on the terrace our room was a little small but our windows opened onto the terrace. Located in a narrow street we could enjoy the sounds of Italy through our window.... 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.
