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

I can't recommend La Scogliera highly enough! My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights in the room and really feel like there couldn't have been a better place to stay in Riomaggiore. It was the perfect size for just the 2 of us, and the view from the bedroom window was amazing. It looks out onto the water with spectacular... More

I stayed in the apartment just next to the owner's apartment. We were aware of the flights of stairs when booking, but unfortunately, my partner was unwell to travel, and I had to travel on my own. It was OK arriving by train to Riomaggiore from Manarola where I had stayed earlier. You just have to follow the directions stated... More

We spent four fantastic nights at La Scogliera in their recently renovated waterfront studio apartment with a large balcony that overlooked a beautiful small harbor and also afforded spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea. The owner, a native of Riomaggiore,was most hospitable and helpful beyond words; he didn’t speak English fluently so he sent his nephew who spoke perfect English... More

We had three nights here. Make no mistake, the location is amazing and the balcony looks straight out to sea and the Marina. We watched a storm roll in over the ocean, with a glass of the local drop and it was great. Having said all that, "cozy" is an appropriate term. There is no room for a lounge, so... More

Comfortable, sweet and cozy. We asked for the apartment with the view of the sea. It is cumbersome to get there with huge luggage, but the man at the reception very kindly came to help us carry our luggage quite a long way when my friend ran ahead to get help. He was very friendly and even refused our tip!... More
