Il Vigneto is overall a wonderful relaxing experience and charming place to stay. It has a small Italian village ambiance with many locals, very helpful. The small environment was what we were looking for, and I am so glad because after a day in the busy towns of Cinque Terre, also very nice, we were ready for some R&R and soaking up the views of the sea and vineyards. The perch high above the towns in the oceans is an awesome experience, the owners of the B&B were so helpful and let anyone use the patio terrace to sit at to enjoy the views. Our room was small but comfortable with a private bathroom, very nice for a small B&B. The owners helped us with finding a bus to catch our train back, we had no idea what to do and they solved our problems. The only downfall to the location is that the shuttle bus from Volastra down to Manarola is limited in it's hours and we had to plan our day around catching the bus back, especially at night, the last run was at 7:30, which limits dinner options. One night we did walk back up, a 3Kilometer, steep walk but if you are fit not a problem.
Overall highly recommended, we would go back here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "Il Vigneto" is a family-run Bed & Breakfast activity, in the middle of the ancient village of Volastra (from the latin Vicus Oleaster, which means the place of olive trees). Volastra is one of the most authentic realities in the heart of the National Park of the Cinque Terre, where terraces built with dry stone walling cleverly made without any cement, give place to the cultivation of vineyards and olive trees. Volastra besides offering an extraordinary natural landscape with hills sloping down to the sea, is the most important crossway of paths of the Cinque Terre. In fact, from Volastra you may hike many paths with various levels of difficulty surrounded by a spectacular nature. All the paths are duly signed with red and white strips.In a few minutes from Volastra you may reach Manarola thanks to a good shuttle bus service. The cost of the bus is included in the daily ticket to visit the National Park. Once you are in Manarola you may use trains and boats to visit the other four villages. "Il Vigneto" of very recent restructuring offers double, triple and quadruple rooms, each one with its own bathroom, TV sat, high speed internet connection, small fridge, heating and a few with sea view. Breakfast is served in the dining room while during the good season it is served on a wide panoramic terrace with an amazing sea view. From the terrace, that may be used by our guests, you may admire the sea surrounded by hills cultivated with olive trees and vineyard. ... more less
