Il Patio
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We highly recommend, if you are visiting the Cinque Terre stay in Manarola at Il Patio. We stayed in Room 2 for 3 nights, which was exactly as shown on website. Spotlessly clean, comfortable double bed & good bathroom. Best value accommodation we had in our 5 weeks in Italy. True taste of Village life. Need to be fit enough to climb the steps up - easy if taken slowly. Piera's communications & English very good. We greatly appreciated Piera's husband Luciano & his brother Angelo carrying our suitcases - thank you to them.

Can't thank enough Piera and Angelo for creating and maintaining this charming apartment! We had the best stay during our 3 weeks trip across Italy!

Location: great. apartment is located almost in the middle of the village but away from all bar and restaurant noise. We were glad to stay in Manarola a bit quieter but as beautiful as Vernazza. Manarola is still overrun by tourists but a bit less than Vernazza.

Bed: very comfortable, good solid matress, two double beds joined together.

Noise: none, very quiet place

Comfort: place layout is well thought through, good lighting

WiFi: geat. strong signal

Communication with host: excellent. Piera replies within few hours.

Overall: we loved Cinque Terre and Il Patio, we will come back again.

Piera and Angelo, thank you very much for a great stay in Manarola.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #3. It has its own entrance and located right below owners apartment, so I assume...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Il Patio for four nights, and it was absolutely perfect! Piera and Angelo are genuine and accommodating, and I would definitely recommend staying at their quaint, charming apartment. The atm in Manarola was broken and so we were unable to pay upon our arrival, but that was absolutely fine with them, very flexible hosts. The apartment is perfectly clean and spacious for two, and the shared open patio is a lovely place to sit with an expresso in the morning.
Would definitely come back and stay with them again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights in Apartment 4 of Il Patio. The booking process was hassle-free and communication with Piera, the owner, was always prompt, positive and helpful. We were met by her husband outside a restaurant very near the railway station and taken to the apartment. We found the apartment very clean and well maintained. We cooked a couple of meals in the kitchen with no problems. There are however quite a number of restaurants within very easy walking distance. It has a wonderful view of the sea and across the Manarola valley. Unfortunately we do not speak Italian, but luckily for us, Piera is fluent in English (and German). Access to the apartment involves some steep stone steps, but this is the case with many apartments in the town and is part of its charm. We would happily stay at Il Patio again.

We stayed here for three nights in apartment 4 and double room 3. it was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Piera was very helpful during the booking process and met us and took us to the apartment. We had a fabulous time in cinque terre even though it rained every day. It was great having such a nice place to come back to at the end of the day.

In our travel experiences, one of the most important factors is in the planning (and in our case changing plans). We had a great experience with Pierain this crazy planning process. She was so helpful in booking a room, even after we changed rooms. Well, unfortunately for us we had to change plans again. We will not be able to stay with Piera in April. When we contacted her to tell her this, she was so nice. Refunded our deposit immediately. Feel comfortable booking with Piera.
