My husband and I had a fantastic time staying at La Scogliera for part of our honeymoon. The apartment has a stunning view of the cove and cliffs, yet is nice and quiet, and private. It is well-equipped — we stayed in a couple of nights and cooked pasta with the famous Ligurian pesto with some beautiful local wine, and... More

We stayed in the room, as mentioned before its a standard room to stay in, but it's the extras that make it so special The room itself has a bed, little table and chairs to eat at, bathroom with shower and has a coffee machine, little fridge and a safe, plus plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, bottle opener etc, and wifi....

Despite the steep and uneven stairs and lots of stairs from the railway station, La Scogliera was an amazing place to stay. It had the largest balcony we saw in Riomaggiore and the view was awesome. As stated in other reviews, we were greeted with a bottle of limoncello and when we came back one night there were delicious freshly... More

I counted the steps several times from the marina - there are 56 irregular in height, most have a railing. You can also come down from the top, we did so after learning the routes, that has the advantage of offering an elevator from/to the station(.80E). Anyway, I agree with all other gushing reviews - we arrived and left the... More

Getting out the station... Walking down to the picturesque harbour where all the tourists hang out for that perfect photo that is in all the postcards. And just imagine your room is part of that landscape, looking like it was carved out of the hillside. We stayed in the room. Clean, big enough for 2 people, shower, wireless internet, and... More

This property gets 5 stars primarily because of its location. The view is dramatic and stunning. you will fall asleep to the crash of the waves and the calls of the sea gulls. The property is hard to find. GPS just did not work in this town of impossible twists and turns. once you're in town, call the owner!

Let's see: a checklist. Weather: Perfect. Location: Idyllic. La Scogliera: Sigh. We kept looking at each other and laughing. So incredibly wonderful. Yes, there are stairs to climb. Didn't you come here to hike? Yes, there's a terrace overlooking the sea. Didn't you come here to relax? Your host has left a bottle of Limoncello. Later that night he brought... More

This property has won lots of awards and we now know why. In our opinion the views are absolutely unbeatable and the Cinque Terre is unique, but La Scogliera excels because of the down to earth local experience. Paolo, Guiliano and their Mum make staying at La Scogliera very special. Home made Limoncello, marmalata, rice pie and the freshest cannoli... More

We stayed in "the room" which I would describe as small, but perfectly formed. It was clean and tidy with a double bed, fridge, table, tv, wifi and separate bathroom. Plenty of space for two travellers plus their large suitcases! There was also an air-conditioner which we found no need for during our stay (possibly useful in warmer months). By... More

Was quite a trip up and down the many stairs from the train station with your luggage but once your here it is worth it. Such a perfect location - literally right above the water. The owners are great - very friendly. The room is small but comfortable and with a view like we have - who cares about the... More
