We loved our stay at Ca Da Derna. We arrived after 8:00 but Sergio waited for us and met us at the church just down from the train station. The apartment was roomy and had everything we needed. FYI: When I booked it as a 2 bedroom I thought we would be able to use both bedrooms, but Sergio told us it was extra to use the second bedroom, so we didn't. I didn't see that in the ad and it wasn't a problem, just to let you know! We would definately stay again!

“Really nice spacious apartment”

We stayed here for 10 days and loved it. It's right at the top of the town, so not right in the centre of the restaurants and bars (they're a 2 min walk), but this suited us perfectly as we have a small child, so he slept like a rock in the silence. The bed in the master is amazing, most comfy bed we've had on our travels! There's no aircon but a good fan and the apartment has thick walls and backs onto the cliff, so really cool even in the middle of the day. Was lovely as we had 30+ degree days every day. It's a hard walk up hill from the train station (but everything in Riomaggiore is uphill!). If you're driving, it's super convenient though. Kitchen was fab and we cooked most days - there's a deli, bakery and butcher down the street. Would have loved a washing machine, but there's a laundry facility 2 min down the street. Good reliable wifi. Only thing I'd change is a spruce up of the bathroom. Found the price really reasonable too. Thanks Sergio too for the early check in and late check out! Lovely stay.

This was our first trip to Cinque Terre and the apartment was perfect for us. The public parking lot at the top of the car-less town is within sight of the apartment and made moving in easy! Our landlord met us on time and gave us a warm welcome and provided helpful information about the area. He also gave us detailed information about all of the amenities in the apartment so we had no problems working the appliances. The apartment is a gated property so we also felt very safe. We enjoyed being above the busiest part of Riomaggiore because it was quiet and peaceful at night.

“Perfect spot to enjoy Cinquo Terre”

The apartment was perfect. It was well stocked with cooking supplies, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator..although with good restaurants so nearby we never cooked. The apartment was also decorated nicely and it was immaculate.. We even had a small courtyard patio enclosed by gate which gave us a scenic area to sit. We loved the location as it was close to everything.
Sergio was wonderful in that we arrived late due to plane difficulties and he met us at the planned spot and graciously took the time to give us information on the area so our trip would go well. The only thing we missed was a second set of keys so we would have a little more freedom of movement.

We were four adults traveling together, and Ca da Derna was perfect for our needs. Sergio met us as planned, and ensured that we were settled in and had everything we needed. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants, and traveling by train in the Cinque Terre. We arrived in a heatwave, and he managed to find us a second fan for the second bedroom. He also brought us an umbrella the next morning, when we woke to a huge thunderstorm. Ca da Derna is at the end of the shopping street, on the first floor of a building with one flight of stairs up. It is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of towels, good beds, and a well equipped kitchen. We were very happy with our stay.

Sergio was very friendly and helpful! Very sweet man. On the first day, he provided us with answers to all our questions pertaining to getting around via train between the villages, recommendations on which restaurants/places to eat and suggestions for some local activities we could do. The location of the apartment is right at the topmost part of the hill, which was quite a walk, but it's good exercise to have every day. The apartment itself was very clean and spacious. Wifi worked great, for the most part. Everything was furnished, towels and linen were provided, kitchen utensils, trash bags and basic toiletries. Riomaggiore really does have the best sunsets so definitely stay at this apartment if you decide to visit! You won't regret it!

Lovely apartment which suited our needs perfectly. We travelled with our one and a half year old son and there was no issues at all. As the town itself is quite small you aren't really far from anything. Sergio was very friendly and helpful. He met us at the start of the town and even held a car park for us. He also hung on to our passports after we accidentally left them behind and went out of his way to meet us a few days later. Great wifi too. Areat experience all round.
