Perfect location. Clean, compact apartment on the water's edge, 5 minutes from the station, and a great base to explore the entire area. Paulo and Guillermo are very good hosts. Tip: if you have heavy bags, turn left at the end of the tunnel from the station, go 50 metres up the hill, and turn left into Via S Antonio... More

Best view in all of Cinque Terra. These rooms could not be closer to the water. The sunset view is unmatched. Best place to stay with out a doubt. These rooms are in high demand so it's best to make reservations early.

In the marina area, a gorgeous setting with a window that look out onto a stunning view...and the marina area is where the best restaurants area. Extremely friendly host, who kept our bags the next day while we strolled around. Wifi in the room, book directly with the owner...and don’t drive here...take the train.

Listen carefully......This is the nicest view in Riomaggiore!!! Do not even consider booking anywhere else. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished! The owners were magnificent hosts. The most delicious lemon cake and a bottle of limoncello were left in our room. The balcony is perfect. If you want to spend a few days living in a "postcard" on a... More

We could only stay there for one night because of other bookings but have been very impressed by the quality of this apartment as well as its location and large deck overseeing the Marina and Sea. We'll be back and reserve well ahead of time ...

My husband and I stayed at the La Scogliera in room 174 October 16-18 when visiting the Cinque Terre. We contacted the owner via e-mail and arranged our stay a few months prior to our trip. The location is fantastic with a direct connection to the waterfront and only a few minute walk from the train station. When we arrived... More

The Cargavu apartment would have to be the best in Riomaggiore. The apartment has a large bedroom, which could sleep up to four, but the bunks are stowed away if you don't need them. The kitchen had an oven and cooktop but no kettle or toaster. The balcony was very large over looking the sea with magnificent views. A bottle... More

Absolute brilliant location. We spent 4 perfect nights here. Family host incredibly hospitable. Great facilities. We loved the outlook so much had pasta and risotto cooked up eaten out on the balcony listening to the waves on the rocks below. Beautiful sunsets while we were there. Only thing need to be aware is the 56 odd steps up and down... More

All the reviews are accurate. Superb location, stunning views, a wonderful owner in Paulo who makes the best pastries and limoncello ever. Paulo was also very informative about the local area. Fantastic, we stayed for 10 nights and loved every minute.

I'm not usually one for sweeping headlines such as this, but I feel it has been extraordinarily earned. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better view - the beautiful azure water outside our window and waves crashing against our building below. Literally 1 minute from the main square/restaurants. We came home tonight to find the most amazing... More
