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

My wife and I chose this apartment in Vernazza sight unseen after discovering it on the internet. This was our 4th visit to this wonderful village, but the first three trips we stayed in another apartment. Unfortunately, our usual place had been sold and was no longer a rental. We are quite familiar with Vernazza, and I felt confident I... 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

Ok, first thing first, there are 400+ steps to get up to get there but don't worry it is well worth it. Arriving through this tiny little green gate we had no idea whether this was where we were meant to be, walking up there steps meandering between lemon trees we found ourselves at the house. Greeted by the lady... More

Don't underestimate the clamber up the steps to get to this lovely, tucked away little place high above the sea, but don't at all let that put you off! It's so worth it, I stayed here with my boyfriend, both early 20s and we were hiking the Cinque Terre trails and this little place just fitted the bill to stay... More

This place is a wonderful gem, but DO NOT underestimate the amount of hiking you will have to do to get there from downtown Vernazza! We are healthy and in our mid-twenties, but hiking back to your room from town (especially with a backpack) was a work out! Be extra careful in the rain, as the old stone steps can... More
