We chose The Charming Room for our three day stay in Vernazza after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and doing much research. The room is situated right on the small harbour with views of the water, hillside, church and piazza. It was a real bonus having such easy access as much of the accommodation at the Cinque Terre is accessed via narrow, steep steps making it a challenge to transport even smallish bags. Giacomo met us off the train and explained the workings of the small, neat, self contained room and gave us his contact number should we have any difficulties as he does not live in the town all the time. He was so friendly and helpful. Vernazza was badly damaged in October 2011 by a massive mud slide that killed 3 people. They were working furiously to complete the re-building before the summer season but they still had much to do when we were there in May. It was heart breaking to see the damage and the work still needing to be completed. Luckily for us our quaint room was warm and cosy with the window opening onto the little harbour. Maria, Giacomo's wife had left some supplies for our breakfast as there were no food stores open in the town at the time. On he day we were leaving Giacomo helped us to he ration wih our bags and introduced us to Maria who arrived in he train we were to depart on. We hope we will gt he opportunit to visit again and if so we will plan to stay in The Charming Room it is available. We wish all the people of Vernazza a successful summer season after such a traumatic experience.
