“Wonderful hosts and a lovely B&B”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

We stayed three nights in this bed and breakfast in a quad-room. The room was spacious as well as the bathroom and we had a beautiful view. Upon arrival our host gave us great suggestions on how to manage our time between the towns as well as detailed schedules for around town. Breakfast is light (as it is in most places in Italy), but the local honey and freshly made bread were wonderful. Taking the bus up to Volastra is easy, but it can be an inconvenience if you are someone who likes to return to their hotel often. We left in the morning and didn't return till the evening and we had no problem fitting our schedule around the bus (it stops running around 7). The one downside to this is that you are basically required to eat dinner up in Volastra, but the take out place that has been mentioned before is fantastic. Don't leave without trying their pesto! There is also a local cab that the owner gives you the number for if you want to stay in Manarola late for dinner, so you are not completely option-less. The Cinque Terre is still recovering from it's mudslides and flooding, but most of the trails are repaired now and Vernazza is on the mend (the town most affected). Our lovely B&B in Volastra was the perfect escape from the crowded main towns!

average rooms, perhaps too hot in summer but quiet comfortable in springtime. charming view over Manarola. hosts not so helpful-please note: if you 're driving from Genova take the road through Spezia, cause the panoramic view from/throguh Pignone/Vernazza is closed due to huge landslide last autumn (2011)-real poor breakfast absolutely not up to the price

I spent three nights in February. I had a car so going to Manarola was easy and the parking was free. I rented a very spacious and comfortable apartment. The price was very good, the heating, even in the middle of winter, very adequate and the owner was very helpful.
My short visit to CT in winter was fabulous and I am very satisfied by the accommodation provided by BB Vigneto.

Located in the small hilltop village of Volastra, B&B Il Vigneto offers a stunning view from its terrace of the ocean and the surrounding hills and vineyards. It is also an excellent value and provides a good continental breakfast, which we took on the terrace as the weather was perfect. Volastra is a bit difficult to get to--you must take a shuttle bus from the town below, and the bus doesn't run as often as one would like (but it is free as part of your Cinque Terre park pass). There is no restaurant (yet) or night life in Volastra, but a local couple sells outstanding homemade take-out food in the village (substantial food, too, not just sandwiches).

We rented an apartment with my husband and our 6 month old baby. The apartment was functional and very clean although the door of the fridge was broken and had to be sustained by a chair. When making the reservation I was promised the bus to Manarola would go until 22.30 daily, but was not too surprised it had just changed its schedule before our stay and the 19.30 bus was the last one for the day. We had dinner a couple of times in Gli Ulivi (highly recommended! by far better quality and lower prices than down in the Cinque Terre villages) and cooked a couple of times ourselves, buying groceries from the minimarket of the village that is opened in the mornings. The 5 villages are so tiny and so full of tourists that at night we were very happy to get to the quiet Volastra where the locals greeted us on the streets and made us feel very welcome. We had to plan out days according to the bus schedules but did not feel it was too hard. The service was very friendly and I could even borrow some cash money from the owner for a day as we were out of cash and needed some for groceries and bus tickets.

First of all it is very difficult to get to this hotel. We didn't have a car so we had to take the train then wait for the bus and take that to the little town. The bus is packed and the people pushed ahead of us to get a seat so we had to lug our suitcases to the back of the bus in 100 degree weather. We spent a good deal of our time in Cinque Terre being a slave to the bus schedule. It is impossible to walk the distance.

Once we arrived, we were greeted by a woman who spoke no English. The room was SCALDING hot. We were told that they wouldn't give us a fan but that it would be cooler at night. It wasn't! There was no breeze and it was impossible to sleep. We asked each day for a fan and they promised to try but we never got one. When I met an American woman who owns a guest house in Cinque Terre, she told me that fans only cost about 20 euro and that it was unacceptable that they wouldn't give us one (ya think?)!

The bathroom was across the hall so very inconvenient. The breakfast was the same bread with honey or Nutella and cold coffee every day. All of that would have been bearable if we could actually sleep but the place is so remote that you waste a ton of time just getting there. I would have gladly paid double the price to stay somewhere where the owners gave a care whether you could even sleep.

I should have gone with my gut instinct and cancelled my reservation as the owner was rude over email (we never met him in person). But it was listed in a travel book on Italy as the author's favorite so I thought it would be ok. WRONG! Do yourself a HUGE favor and DO NOT STAY HERE!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
"Il Vigneto" is a family-run Bed & Breakfast activity, in the middle of the ancient village of Volastra (from the latin Vicus Oleaster, which means the place of olive trees). Volastra is one of the most authentic realities in the heart of the National Park of the Cinque Terre, where terraces built with dry stone walling cleverly made without any cement, give place to the cultivation of vineyards and olive trees. Volastra besides offering an extraordinary natural landscape with hills sloping down to the sea, is the most important crossway of paths of the Cinque Terre. In fact, from Volastra you may hike many paths with various levels of difficulty surrounded by a spectacular nature. All the paths are duly signed with red and white strips.In a few minutes from Volastra you may reach Manarola thanks to a good shuttle bus service. The cost of the bus is included in the daily ticket to visit the National Park. Once you are in Manarola you may use trains and boats to visit the other four villages. "Il Vigneto" of very recent restructuring offers double, triple and quadruple rooms, each one with its own bathroom, TV sat, high speed internet connection, small fridge, heating and a few with sea view. Breakfast is served in the dining room while during the good season it is served on a wide panoramic terrace with an amazing sea view. From the terrace, that may be used by our guests, you may admire the sea surrounded by hills cultivated with olive trees and vineyard. ... more   less
