We booked the two bedroom apartment at the back of the hotel which is great for a family of four. The apartment has its own verandah and is very close to the rest of the hotel facilities.
Villa Steno is situated at the top end of the old village. This makes it a bit quieter than down-town but does provide great views over the village and out to sea. The walk from the train station can be a bit strenuous if your are not fit or have very heavy luggage but there is the option of a taxi.
Carla and Matteo are excellent hosts and this starts with help in making your booking, advice before you arrive and a most helpful demeanour during your stay.
The breakfasts are fantastic and make sure you sample Carla's lemon cake and lemon marmalade. The cappucinos at breakfast were also a winner with the family.
We will definitely stay at Villa Steno on our next visit to the Cinque Terra.
