Fantastic views, great location and amazing people. We stayed in the apartment over Easter weekend of 2012 and Paolo and his family made us feel totally at home. They even suprised us with a homemade pie and wine on Easter morning. During our stay, the coastal trail was only open from Riomaggiore to Manarola and from Monterossa to Vernassa, so walking the whole trail was not an option. We didn't find this to be very dissapointing, as the train runs to all of the villages and the views from the apartment were grand enough to want to just sit all day with a book. We did end up doing a ridge hike above the villages that started in Riomaggiore and was basically free of tourists. The apartment has everything you will need to cook your own meals and there are a couple good grocery places in town to get what you need. This was more than enough space for my boyfriend and I, and aside from the main bed, there are also pull down bunk beds in the bedroom if travelling with kids. This place is perfect. Don't pass it up!
