This agriturismo is great but not for the lazy tourist!
The day we got there we got absolutely lost in the mountains but Tommy, the owner, saved the day sapiently directing us and coming to pick us up at the bottom of the hill. I got worried while driving up...steep and muddy... but when we got to the top....what a view! The room was small but spotless and well equipped and we even had a small balcony to enjoy the view of 5 terre. We had dinner there and Tommy cooked for us...what a feast! The best bits were the homemade olive oil, liquors and mum's kiwi soaked in grappa....yummy! The bed was comfy and the night so quiet. ...and breakfast. ..wow! Coffee, eggs, homemade jam (2 different ones every morning), homemade cakes, homemade fruit salad, homemade chocolate pudding....wow, how stuffed were we?! the walk down wasn't as bad as we thought but forget high heels. ...especially for the return. ...we were given torches and that helped.
I suggest you to take a boat trip of 5 terre, much better than by train. Anyway. .. the place is pricy but considering the hotels around, it's not over the top at all. Not for the elderly. ..we were amazingly looked after and I really hope I will come back one day! Thanks Tommy!
