This is a beautiful two bed apartment with a large living area comprising a fully equipped kitchen and one bathroom. The bedrooms are large and the living area has an extra fold out double bed.
The apartment is located at the top of the steep main street in the beautiful old part of Riomaggiore just a few minutes walk from the train station.
It is spotlessly clean and has excellent WiFi (just scan the QR code on the modem and it sets up automatically, at least it did on my tablet).
The owners met us on our arrival and were extremely helpful with lots of info on all of the Cinqueterre not just Riomaggiore. We won't be looking for anywhere else when we return to the beautiful Cinqueterre.

“Beautiful apartment, wonderful stay”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A friend and I split Ca da Derna during a recent 3 day trip to Riomaggiore. Renting was easy and the manager was there to meet us when we got off the train. He was very friendly and despite limited English was able to provide us will all the necessary information and some tips for our stay. The apartment is at the top of the hill in the village so quite the hike with all of our belongings but therefore very quiet and away from the hubbub of the shops and restaurants. Well furnished, big comfortable beds with nice linens, nice bathroom with a good stock of towels, kitchen well-equipped with everything you need to cook for yourself. Wifi was excellent. No outdoor space but we got nice afternoon sun through the windows.

We met Roberta near the train station, where she said we would meet her. She as extremely helpful and recommended places for us to eat.
The location is very close to places to eat and near the train station, which makes it easy to train hop from one town to the next. It is a bit of an uphill walk to get to the vacation rental, but it is so worth it, just be prepared to walk with your luggage.
The places was perfect, two private rooms which easily sleep 4. The wifi worked very well. The bathroom was great and the amenities were well worth it.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

“Great place for two couples”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were met by Roberta, the owner's daughter, who showed us around and recommended activities. Very helpful! The place is impeccably clean and was perfect for two couples. Right on the main street and convenient to everything. The street is steep, but that's Cinque Terre!

We were unsure what to expect prior to arriving here, but were very pleasantly surprised! We were met in the Main Street by the male owner who helped with or bags. At the apartment Maria and her friend (who spoke very good English) met us in the apartment. They were all so lovely, and helpful giving us maps and train timetable etc. The apartment was spotless, towels and bedding excellent. Very very comfortable. Wifi was very fast (the best we have had all trip). Location very central and minimal stairs to go up (hard to find in rio that's for sure). We can not recommend this place more highly. Loved our stay! Excellent value for money! Definitely stay here!
