We spent 3 weeks traveling around the Mediterranean last September, making our last stop in Cinque Terre. We stayed in this B&B, and it was the most impressive place we stayed in! Will definitely come back. The rooftop breakfast, the personalized attention. Limoncello and wine available in the lobby. It was perfect. Strongly recommend for honeymooners. It is small, only...

I can't imagine getting a better value in Monterosso. The price was right and the accommodations and amenities were terrific. Francesco was a very gracious host and took the time to orient us to Cinque Terre and answer any questions we had. The room was small but really all we needed since most of our time was spent exploring. We...

I booked what I thought was a B and B online, however this room does not come with breakfast. It is conveniently located near a parking lot, and a couple minutes walk into the center of town. It was clean, quiet and comfortable.

This bed and breakfast is absolutely amazing! Our room was lovely and clean. They provided water bottles daily as well as complimentary limoncello and the most amazing breakfast of croissants, fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, juice, coffee, and more. The hosts are so friendly and helpful, and the view from the room and terrace is amazing. Don't stay anywhere...

My wife and I stayed in Il Timone during our trip to monterosso! It was the absolute best place we have ever stayed in. There are three rooms, and they are adorable and a perfect couple getaway. You get the most astonishing breakfast you could imagine in the morning. Francesco's mother makes a breakfast starting with fresh juice, coffee, fresh...

We stayed in the 'Santa Maria' room on our 25th anniversary. Francesco's mother cooked a breakfast to order of eggs, fruit, yogurt, juice and pastries. The three days we stayed there were the best we had in Italy. We needed laundry done and Francesco's mother helped us out with it. She's the most amazing hostess we met in Italy. Francesco...

Il Timone was our first stop on our 8-day trip through Italy. The location was in a great spot (in the middle of old town), the room was clean and nice, and the breakfast was probably the best we had the whole trip. Enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace while Francesco's mother makes you some of the tastiest scrambled...

Located in Monterosso al Mare, Cinque Terra, this romantic B&B was wonderful. The rooms are nicely appointed with modern bath facilities. Each morning you are served a full breakfast on the open top terrace, which is breathtaking. A short walk takes you to sightseeing, shopping, and many quaint restaurants. The hospitality that Francesco and Federica extend only adds to the...

We are repeat visitors to this wonderful place. It is a special place. The rooms are very nice, the staff is excellent, the breakfast is wonderful. We love the location. The exercise we get climbing the stairs to our room is always welcomed. The view from the roof is great. The owner is great and very helpful.
