Monterosso is the most open and relaxing of the Cinque Terre, in that, as well as the lovely old town, it has a promenade and beach. This apartment is a short walk from the beach (walk down in your swimsuit), close to the railway station, and a ten-minute walk to the old town. Down the road are a supermarket, laundry, bakery and several fine restaurants and bars.
The apartment has been lovingly restored and decorated by the owner. It is perfect for two people, and thoughtfully furnished with everything you might need on vacation, right down to beach towels, a first aid kit and sellotape. The owner’s helpfulness and flexibility made settling in easy and her recommendations of walks and restaurants meant we could enjoy our vacation right from the start.
We were there for ten days and would happily have stayed longer.
