“Marta and B&B Il Parco are the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2008

We could not have imagined a better place to stay in Cinque Terre than B&B Il Parco. Obviously everyone else knows that too so when we went to book our vacation it was already full. Marta was so nice and kept in contact with us every time a room opened up. We ended up staying 3 nights, 2 in the suite (which was amazing) and 1 in a deluxe. The B&B complex is up a steep hill but included in your room stay is a taxi ride to and from the train station. Once you drop your bags the hike isn't that bad. Plus, you'll be walking up and down hills all over Cinque Terre. The grounds are beautiful and tended to by Marta's father. The rooms are very clean and modern with nice beds and bathrooms. Marta's mom, husband (I think), and husband's mom (I think) clean the rooms. Breafast is deliscous and can be eaten outside overlooking the ocean. Several rooms have balconies and there is never a shortage of great views of the surrounding landscape. If ever you need any assistance there are speaker systems on the grounds and the family lives 50 meters up the hill. Marta will come down on her scooter and help you however she can. Overall we have a wonderful time at B&B Il Parco and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone traveling to Cinque Terre. Thank you for the wonderful time Marta. We will surely be back.

b+b il parco is simply perfect... incredible views, helpful and jovial staff, homemade pastries for breakfast and flawlessly kept grounds. it is a bit remote, but only a 15 min walk down to the newer part of monterosso. there is a great taxi service, SPEADY TAXI, that s always available for only 5 euro to take you to the top if you don't feel like walking back up to il parco. any local will call them for you if you don't have a phone.

the b+b is situated on a hillside overlooking the town with sprawling views of the ligurian sea... just amazing! we stayed in room 9, a spacious suite that was built just a few years ago. very modern and chic, with brand new furniture, fixtures and lavatory. nice little patio outside our door with comfy chairs and a great view of the sea.

operated by a friendly family, il parco feels more like a hotel than a b+b... lots of privacy and plenty of help whenever you need it. they serve a great breakfast of homemade pastries, as well as yogurt, meats and cheeses, and several different kinds of coffees and teas. although a bit out of the way, il parco is perfect for those who don't mind a hike and want a gorgeous, secluded getaway in the cinque terre. simply perfect!

  • Liked — beautiful views, great food, fantastic grounds! just fabulous all the way around!

My husband and I stayed at B&B Il Parco as part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. By far, it was the best experience we had in our three weeks in Italy. The property is magnificent with a view of the Mediterranian Sea and you can hear the waves from outside the rooms. It is quiet and away from the activity of the town, but close enough to walk (5 minutes down and 10 minutes up to the property). The grounds are kept in wonderful condition, with most of the plants in bloom while we were there. Marta was gracious and helped us with anything that we needed, including help with restaurants and travel arrangements to our next destination. It is a family run property with fresh baked goods, among other things, for breakfast every morning. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Italy.
