We loved everything about this place. Tommy and Elena excel at the art of hosting. Everything they make is beautiful or delicious - or both, and they made us and our 3-year-old boy feel so welcome it was like home. Our apartment was very spacious and beautifully furnished. We loved the little terrace at the front and the hammock overlooking the beautiful bay of Monterosso. Tommy showed us some nice walks up the hill, and every day we went down to the sea for a swim and a delicious ice cream made with local apricots or lemons. It is very easy to reach the other villages of the Cinque Terre by train or by boat. We were there in June 2012, and you could see traces of the mud slides in platces, but it's amazing how quickly they've managed to get over the mudslide and flooding they suffered.
It's quite a stiff walk back up to the house, so make sure you don't forget anything on your way to the beach! But for us, the best part was eating there, evening after perfect evening looking out at the amazing view and listening to the birds and bees, and sampling the delicious local white wine (you should ask Tommy for the best stuff!). It's an amazing place. We can recommend the local food shop (nearest to you on the sea front) as a great place to get stuff for picnics and sandwiches.
