Ilaria, Claudia & Fiorenza were very helpful and made our arrival very easy. They arranged to meet us at a particular time/location, so we could park our car (indoor garage for a reasonable extra fee) and help us navigate to the rental. The place was better then described and had amazing views from an L shaped balcony accessible from the bedroom and kitchen. We had expecting to use the AC, which actually had 2 separate units, but did not end up needing it because the weather was perfect with a nice cross ventilation ocean breeze through the apartment. We loved hearing the waves crashing against the rocks in front of the marina below. There were a couple of small grocery stores nearby as well as restaurants and gelato/sorbeto places. The house is conveniently located within a short walk to the beach (rocky but crystal clear water for swimming), the ferry boat to other nearby towns and the train. We did not use our car at all while staying in Riomaggiore and opted to hike between the other towns as well as use the ferry boat and train. After visiting the other towns, we decided we liked the size and vibe of Riomaggiore and hopefully will be able to rent this place again when we return to Cinque Terre.
Fiorenza, Ilaria, & Claudia were the perfect hosts! The apartment is in the perfect location near the marina in Riomaggiore, with amazing sea views on one side, and beautiful garden/terraced views on the other! The apartment has a beautiful terrace, perfect for watching the sunrise/sunset while sipping on a glass of Vino Bianco di Cinque Terre! Grazie mille a voi!
Casa di Renzo was an absolute jewel. Claudia met us at the train station and helped us to the apartment. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast and fresh fruit, it was spacious, and the view was incredible! Best of all, there was great air conditioning in bedroom and the living room. Riomaggiore was way less crowded than Manarola and the other cities which was great! We had breakfast on the balcony as late as 9:00 and the town still had a quiet sleepy feel. If you are going to Cinque Terre, you should definitely make this the place to come back to at the end of the day!
Ilaria, Claudia, and Fiorenza were wonderful hosts! The apartment was perfect and exactly as described. It is convenient to the train station and the beach and has incredible views of both Riomaggiore and the sea with an amazing sunset view. They made us feel welcome by leaving coffee and breakfast food and even helped us make reservations at a delicious restaurant in town, La Lampara. We cannot say enough good things about this place and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cinque Terre!
