We had a great stay in Vernazza! We stayed in room two, and as i have read in other reviews, it was quite loud at night, but we had a positive attitude about it and just laughed when we could hear small children out late at night, or church bells at 7am every morning. The location was amazing, sitting in... More

Vernazza is the place to stay in the Cinque Terra if you want to hike, as it is only in this town that the trails are open since in the landslide to hike to both adjacent towns of Monterrosa and Corniglia. And in Vernazza, Franca Maria has great rooms. Like many places in the Cinque Terra, it is not one... More

We got off the train in Vernazza and had to navigate some huge crowds to find ourselves before the blank door of Francamaria Rooms. After I pushed the button on the intercom, we waited a few minutes before the proprietor led us to our room and provided our keys. He proved to be very helpful and always available by intercom...

We arrived in Vernazza and followed directions as per email confirmation, all smooth, a gentleman came down, took us to the room and then asked to come over with our passports and pay for the room once we had settled in - nice. So we went over later and fixed up all the paperwork & paid and then we didn't... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night after a long hike from monterosso. The reservation spot is in the piazza by the water. There is a door that sits next to a busy pizza place. Ring bell and Giovanni will greet you. We were booked in the Lina room but due to problems they changed us to 6b.... More

We stayed for two nights in April and our budget couldn't stretch to a sea view room. The room we ended up with was very well positioned, just a few moments walk up some stairs from the main square. However the only window opened onto a narrow alley and there was very little natural light. The room was ok, the... More

So there is a range of reviews on this place and I can understand both sides. We arrived in town around noon and selected FrancaMaria by chance as we looked at the signs around Vernazza offering rooms. There was space in town as many rooms were available. I believe the price was high based on guidebooks and the time of... More

We stayed for 5 nights in May 2013. We had the a room with a sea view and it was well worth the extra I am sure as it was so lovely gazing out the window, smelling wonderful food smells from the restaurant below, hearing happy chatter from the square, listening to the water .... The room was spacious and... More

We booked room 4 for 2 nights in October. Booking and communication was quick and clear via email. The room was very clean, spacious, and serviced during our stay (and true to the website pictures). The location is great. The room is right off the main square where all the action is, but in a back street, so it was... More

We stayed at Franca Maria rooms for 3 nights in September as part of our honeymoon trip through Italy. The room was in a fantastic location set one street behind the harbour. The room was clean and fairly equipped for a short stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we returned to the room one afternoon to find... More
