Villa Gnocchi is in a great location up in the hills above Santa Margherita. This makes it difficult to rate in terms of value as you are near the coast and Portofino in particular. However, they key ingredient for a B&B is just that - the bed and the breakfast. I have to say that the room was reasonably basic... More

My husband and I found the Villa Gnocchi on line while on vacation in Nice. We came solely on the reviews of Trip advisor (Something we use a lot). We were not disappointed. It was a bit tricky to find, and the road into the villa was death defying..(Not really) only adding to the fun memory of the place. It... More

Roberto, the owner was the perfect host. So helpful to every guest. Made each one feel special with different suggestions for them to do depending on their interests. The rooms were totally charming and cleaned with fresh towels every day with a good fridge. The terrace was a lovely place to relax at the end of a hard day's walking.... More

17 of us descended on Villa Gnocchi early July 09, from various parts of the world - Australia, Canada and UK, as a surprise for my husband's birthday. I cannot say enough about host Roberto and his assistance/support as I was organising this from Australia. I booked the villa based on its location and some internet reviews I had read,... More

What terribly good value for money so close to Portofino. Rooms were fine. Nice, functional, clean and comfortable with some nice bits of antique furniture, but the views are the key thing - they were to die for. Worth it just for that. Nice breakfast, and host, Roberto, was very helpful if a little tired with it! All this aside,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Gnocchi from September 12th thru the 14th of September, 2008. We were told about the Villa from a friend who had previously stayed there. We were looking for a B&B that was close to the Cinque Terra and we made the reservations based on their recommendation. When we arrived at Santa Margherita,... More

Although it's been some time since we stayed here, having read a reallly very critical and negative review about the place, I felt it necessary to write a few, short words. We stayed in Roberto's father's old house, in the corner room with the small ensuite bathroom. The view from the balcony was great, contrary to another reviewer . .... More

We found the Gnocchi B&B through guidebooks and were impressed by the great reviews. Once we got to Gnocchi's we were absolutely charmed by the views and the delightful but small rooms. I have to say that the place was difficult to find, however, and not for those who are not up to doing some climbing, both on foot and... More
