The b&b is not new (well not our room at least) but it was clean and homely. We loved Frederica and her warm lovely family. Loved loved the breakfast room and the free taxi service. Highly recommend this place. It's a nice stroll to monterroso.

We found Le Giare in Monterosso al Mare on Trip Advisor and contacted them.
It turned out to s a very good place to stay while visiting Cinque Terre. The B&B is located in a new, separate building, and our room was of good size and very comfortable. The bathroom was also sufficiently large and comfortable.

The breakfast is served in a separate building, and was fine.
We were concerned about the fact that Le Giare is located outside of town and that one could walk in to town or take a taxi cab (the B&B has an arrangement with the cab company, and two trips per day into or from town are paid for by Le Giare.) But the walk is very quick -- maybe 10 minutes -- and even coming from town (uphill) wasn't too difficult. (I am 70 and my wife is 65 and both of us are in pretty good shape, and neither of us had a problem).

We would definitely return when we are in the area.

We stayed at Le Giare B&B during our stay in Cinque Terre. It may have been the best part of the whole trip. The accomodations were immaculate and had the most modern conveniences of any room that we have stayed in Europe. The room looked out over a beautiful garden and and the beautiful hillsdes of Monterosso. The owner, Fredricca, could not have been sweeter or more helpful and accomodating. Breakfast in must be seen to be believed. Absolutely love this place. It is a short walk down the hill to the train station to see the rest of Cinque Terre.

La Giare is a clean B&B run by Frederica and Luca, very nice proprietors. The rooms are pretty spacious, and have air conditioning, important in this town. There is a nice terrace just outside of the rooms overlooking greenery, which is very nice. To be clear, although a 5-10 minute walk from the beach, this place is a long walk from town (at least 20 minutes) up a steep incline for half of the time, which is a little difficult if you've been hiking the rest of the trails. The cab service is fine, but there is no phone in the room to call, and it's not always easy to get ahold of the owners to call. Our room had a bit of a funky smell from the pipes as well. Cash only. In all, however, a decent place to stay.

The owners, Federica and her husband (with their 10 month old) were delightful hosts. Our room was recently built as part of a building containing 3 separate accommodations .... designed by Federica who is an architect. Spacious bedroom and well appointed bathroom. Situated 'up the hill' from the seaside town it was a pleasant walk ( free taxi service provided twice each day for those who didn't want to walk...we used this for check-in and departure only) and the setting was one of peace and quiet overlooking the hillside. Would recommend room with the balcony...very pleasant for that coffee break. A friend who had stayed here a couple of years ago recommended this B&B and we would do the same.

We had a wonderful stay here for only 2 nights, and wished we would've extended our trip. The room was very clean, comfortable, and looked newly renovated. The area felt like a resort, and it was so nice to be served a tasty breakfast every morning. It's not too far away from the train station and restaurants, it's a very nice walk into town; but taxi service is offered free! We were so happy to find a kettle for tea in our room, and the shower was so comfortable. I would definitely recommend this and can't wait to come back!
