We stayed here for 4 days in May and loved the quietness and serenity of the place which is surrounded by vines, lemon trees and olive groves. The two people who work there assisting the owners are delightful and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the yellow house which is for a couple and it was fine. We also looked at the other units and thought the one over the room that contained the vats of wine was the nicest for more than one couple (2 bedrooms) or for a family. It is possible to walk here from the train station if you have light luggage but otherwise they will arrange for a taxi if you let them know your time of arrival. (There are few taxis in Monterosso so it is a good idea). The drive took about 10 minutes and I was a bit concerned thinking we would have to walk all that way into town, but in fact there is a path into the town that just takes about 3 or 4 minutes that is not accessible for cars. Breakfast is the usual white rolls and jam, with cakes and coffee with hot milk provided.
We visited four of the five villages (not Corniglia) and we thought Monterosso was the nicest place to stay with more restaurants to choose from as well as a beach. Vernazza was still in the process of cleaning up after the flood although some places were open.
