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.

Staying at L'Eremo sul Mare was the best part of our trip to Cinque Terre! The home is on the side of the Vernazza hills and quite a trek! But the views and peacefulness you will feel is worth every step of the hike. My friend and I loved this place for many reasons, but one of the main reasons... More

Authentic Italian Villa on top of the hills overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean and the town of Vernazza. Yes all the steps are worth it, especially if you want to get away from the tourists visiting Cinque Terre. L'Eremo sul Mare is right off the Blue Trail in the national forest on the hike from Vernazza to Corniglia. Hiking up from... More

The owners are extremely welcoming and really make you feel at home. One lovely evening was spent drinking limoncello with them and other guests on the balcony! Our room was very comfortable and clean and the terrace is a beautiful spot to relax. The walk is steep and can be tiring in the heat, but certainly not an obstacle if... More

While the ~450 stairs uphill are definitely sweat-inducing, when you aren't carrying luggage the trek isn't too bad...the views are totally worth it. The B&B itself is very nice, everyone who we met there was friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was good and the terrace is a perfect place to sit and read. If you don't mind... More
