“Very nice and quite little bed & breakfast in Volastra near Manarola”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at Ca del Michele' . Usually the second week of August is very busy in Italy, but staying in this B&B made our stay quite and relaxing. Milena, the owner, is a very kind lady, the place is very clean and the price standard. Volastra is a very little town on the top of Manarola, therefore cool and fresh. The B&B has a very nice terrace where you have breakfast and can have dinner, provided you buy it at the nearby gastronomia store owned by Bruna, which prepares delicious take away hot meals. There is an ecological bus that connets Volastra with either the nearby train station or a couple of the 5 terre.

We arrived and there was no one to greet us.
There was nothing open to grab a bite in the whole town (there's just one restaurant and it was closed at 8 pm). And a closed bar with the "soon to be open sign".
The whole time we were there, we barely saw the owner, which was not friendly at all.
As usual, they try to get youto pay in cash.
The room was dirty (an empty yogourt under the bed).
To connect to Manarola (closest town) you ahve to use the shuttle service which runs every now and then with an anarchic schedule we couldn't figure out.
There is though, a beautiful little chappel on the town and the path to Corniglia is quite nice.

We spent three nights at ca del Michelê because we love to be on top of the hill with stunning sea view. The view was spectacular from our room and the breakfast lady was very helpfull with tips for food and walks. If you arrive after 1pm nobody is available for check in. Breakfast in the morning is great with sea view and a verandah weather permitting. The down side is that the breakfast room with tables and sofa is locked up as soon you finish breakfast! NO other room to spend some time outside your bedroom As our room was very small and very cold-no heating untill 7pm just in time to go out for dinner, it was very uncomfortable unless you go straight to BED!
No duna covers just a blanket did not do the trick either. If you are looking for a great meal don't stay in Volastra...Go to Trattoria dal Billy in Manarola 20min by foot down hill the food high light during our Italy trip!

We stayed three nights in this lovely little B&B, up in the hills above Manarola. You can reach it by car, by riding the shuttle bus (fare is included in your Cinque Terre pass) or by having a bracing 45 minute climb up through the vineyards from Manarola. The B&B is in the heart of the old village of Volastra, and you reach it by walking through the old village pathways (if you have a car, you can park it at the edge of the village and take a short walk to the B&B). The owners, Michelle and Melena are friendly and accommodating. Their place has been completely renovated and is clean and welcoming. A continental breakfast with yogurt and lots of coffee is included. The views of the surrounding landscape and Mediterranean are stunning. We found it a quiet refuge in the Cinque Terre region.

  • Liked — Peaceful retreat in quaint authentic Cinque Terre village
  • Disliked — nothing
