This is a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I stayed for three nights and wish we could have stayed longer, but our trip was ending. Sandro was a very kind host and met us in the rain at the parking lot. He also printed up maps and train schedules for us and gave us tips on where to... More

Sandro met us after we got dropped off in a taxi from Pisa. Straight away he was very informative and helped us with ALL of our luggage. Its definately a workout if you don't catch the train. During our stay Sandro went above and beyond what was expected. He was very responsive to all of our requests. The apartment was... More

We travelled as a family to Italy and stayed in Sandro's apartment. Sandro and his mother were fantastic and the apartment was beautiful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Would definitely recommend as family friendly as our days there were fantastic. Thanks Sandro. Pisconeri family Waroona Western Australia

We loved our time here. The host, Sondro, was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful if you could take your eyes off of the sea which was right outside the window, and at night, the sound of the sea reminded you of why you came to this part of Italy. We recommend at least two nights plus, and definitely, at this... More

The guest house is in a great location on the marina with a sea view in our favorite town in the Cinque Terre. Riomaggoire is gorgeous and intimate with some great restaurants. We spent our days exploring the other towns and the late afternoons swimming in the marina and napping with the waves lapping against the shores and the world... More

Had a great time in the Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore is indeed the best village). The location of Alla Marina is outstanding and our room was perfect. Literally steps (and there are steps everywhere in the Cinque Terre) to the water, restaurants and the access to the train station Best of all is getting to have Sandro as your host. Communication...

We enjoyed five nights staying in the cheapest room available at Alla Marina and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very nicely decorated, spacious, comfortable and clean. Sandro, the host, was the best. He has excellent English. He met us at the rail station and escorted us to the rooms, insisting on helping with our luggage. Sandro has lots of... More

This was our first time in Cinque Terre and we found Sandro's lovely place by good trip adviser ratings. We had high expectations and they were definitely met! Sandro was so helpful on our arrival, giving us recommendations of restaurants, telling us the paths to walk and he even let us use one of the car parks for my cousin... More

This is exactly what one would want in the Cinque Terre, no more, no less. Sandro was great to work with both before and during our visit. We traded several emails back and forth beforehand to prepare for the trip. He picked us up at the train station upon arrival. He provided us with a list of all the things... More

Having wanted to walk the path for many years we actually booked about 6 weeks before going. The information posted by Sandro made me think that he was "get up and go" and he was! The view we wanted had gone in the space of 30 mins between our first email from him and confirmation so we asked if he... More
