Very close to the train and ferry service in Riomaggiore. Maddy met us and provided us with a wealth of helpful information and great restaurant recommendations. Since the blue trail is closed in some sections, she recommended a local hike in Riomaggiore that was one of our favorite experiences of our trip. The room was small but clean and well... More

We stayed here for two nights and the only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer! Maddy, the owner did everything to make us feel welcome and that our stay was comfortable. She even arranged a room for our son in another location since her place was full. In the morning there were fresh breakfast pastries delivered to our door... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in il boma in April 2014. Riomaggiore is a beautiful place and il boma further enhanced our stay experience. This BB is very clean and provides freshly baked crossaints every morning. Ask for the Blu Room which has an balcony over looking the street of Riomaggiore. We love it! Keong and Kit

Il Boma is in the middle of the hill on the main street in Riomaggiore so it's location is perfect for this town. The rooms are clean, ours had a balcony overlooking the Main Street, and there are lots of amenities included. In the summer you would have breakfast on the terrace on the top floor, but since it was... More

We had a wonderful stay at il Boma In October. A great find , close to everything you need - local restaurants, shops and laundry just next door and a big room with a balcony that looked out onto the streets to get that local flavour.

Very clean room with a great host (I believe she was from the North East...NY or NJ)...also gave us a great, homemade bottle of Limoncello...made, I presume, with lemons from the tree in the 'backyard'.

If you are travelling to the Cinque Terre region, look no further. Nestled perfectly on the streets of Riomaggiore, this room offers great views and the true experience of the area.

We had a delightful November visit to Riomaggiore, Italy (5 Terre region). Maddy and Franco's B & B was a pleasant and enjoyable find.
