Just a note to say that I stayed for five nights at Il Gatto with my partner and adult daughter in late June. Corniglia is a perfect location in that it doesn't have the hordes of tourists of other CT towns, yet it has enough good restaurants and several decent shops/deli's to keep you busy. It is in the middle of the CT so it is very convenient for exploring the area. The marina at the bottom of the hill is never crowded and a great place for a pre-dinner swim. Il Gatto itself is a real home away from home - great kitchen (full gas stove and oven), a washing maching, great coffee pot, comfortable beds and cute balcony for watching the magnificent sunset or that final after dinner Limoncello (or 2)! It is extremely clean. The apartment is on the edge of Corniglia so has an uninterrupted view to the West. Antonio is a great host (providing us with lemons and rosemary from his mothers former garden next door) and even provides the phone number of his son (who speaks good English) in the unlikely case of an emergency. Antonio met us at the green bus on arrival and briefed us fully on the local walking tracks and shops before heading home to La Spezia. We thought the two bedroom apartment was great value - especialy for two couples or a family - and thoroughly recommend it. It was highlight of our 2012 trip.
