This is the best place we could have stayed for being in Vernazza. I teared up at the view from this place, absolutely gorgeous, perfect. It's a 10-15 hike from town up the mountain and well worth it. It's extremely quiet and peaceful with a spectacular view. A quick hike back down to the town gets you all the amazing... More

This beautiful bed-and-breakfast was the highlight of our trip. The hosts are so warm, friendly and welcoming it's like staying with family. While the hike is a bit steep it's not difficult and it's definitely worth it - just don't be silly and try to take your roller luggage with you. We had been carrying light packs for our entire...

My wife and I spent three nights here recently. The owners have put much thought into the rooms. We enjoyed spending time on the terrace and walking the grounds of the property. It is a tranquil place to relax after hiking during the day.

Yes, staying here is worth the hike! We spent time on the balcony and in the comfortable sitting room relaxing and enjoying the view and the quiet, tranquil surroundings. Perfect way to relax after hiking the trails. The thing that made this stay so special were the hosts. They have built and outfitted this home with such care and thought,... More

The reward at the end of climbing the 450 steps to L'Eremo sur Mare was so worth the hike. In September my husband and I stayed here, along with another couple during our visit to Cinque Terrre for 3 nights. It was a wonderful retreat from the business of the villages. We spend peaceful evenings sitting on the terrace overlooking... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice, first several years ago, and then again last year and brought my parents. The location is a bit of a struggle for those who are not very fit, and please, leave your suitcases and heavy luggage in the town. My parents struggled only a little, when it came to climbing the many stairs.... More

My husband and I (mid 50s) stayed here for 5 nights in October 2013 and were SO glad we did! We planned ahead and left the bulk of our luggage at the shop in town as instructed and only carried up duffle bag with a shoulder strap and backpack with our belongings. The hike up was not hard, just got... More

We stayed at L'Eremo sul Mare for three nights during our holiday in Cinque Terre. The hotel is located on the hiking track from Vernazza to Corniglia and is a 20 minutes hike away from Vernazza's busy city center. It is a challenging hike and as mentioned in other reviews you should only take a backpack with you. A storage... More

We absolutely loved our stay on L'Eremo sul Mare while in Vernazza. The 400 + stair hike is definitely worth it, and the views are great along the way. I had printed the directions to the hotel on their website which were very detailed and easy to follow. There is a tobacco shop in town where you can leave your... More

Great place to stay. After a hike from town, stunning views from the porch. Quiet and cool in the evening. The breakfast was very nice. Lots of birds around the house. Comfortable beds and ample bathrooms. Not everyone can make the hike up here, but if you can, go for it.
