“Fantastic place, location and owners!!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2008

Maria and Giacomo are the most amazing people. They are the owners and as soon as we met them we knew we were in good hands. Very helpful and kind people, felt like we were with family.

We stayed in the charming room for 2 nights. It is on ground level right on the piazza in Vernazza so was excellent for us since we had heavy luggage and did not want to climb stairs. The room is very well kept, private and secure. It has a little kitchenette in case you want to make tea or heat up something. It was a really nice place to stop for 2 days after the non stop travel through Rome, Umbria, Tuscany and Florence.

We contacted them directly on email for our bookings and just reconfirmed prior to arrival. Everything went really smoothly and we had no problems.

I highly recommend this place to everyone.

We booked the Charming Room for three nights in April 2008 following reading positive comments by other Trip Advisor members and we were not disappointed. Maria and Giacomo were very hospitable and really tried to make our stay memorable (which it was). We loved the location right on the water and being able to leave the window open at night to listen to the waves. Had no trouble booking direct by email and just had to ring ahead a day or two to notify arrival time by train so that Giacomo could meet us. The room was clean and special touches like fresh flowers are noticed and appreciated. There were also several restaurants within no more than a 2-3 minute walk. For us the village of Vernazza was the perfect location - the first day we walked from Vernazza to Corniglia to Manarola to Riomaggiore, which took us about 4.5 hours (we weren't hurrying, but enjoying the walk, views and interesting villages along the way). We then caught the ferry back from Riomaggiore to Vernazza (25 mins). On our second day we did the more challenging walk from Vernazza to Monterosso which took us about 1.5 hours, and caught the train back to Vernazza. Unfortunately our stay coincided with Liberation Day (a public holiday) which meant plenty of day trippers along the Cinque Terre and it was very, very busy on the tracks and in the villages. Would definitely stay in Vernazza again and at Maria and Giacomo's. Great value and great memories.

This room is wonderfully modern, hidden behind an old door only 25 feet from the water. The window looks out on an amazing view--the water, the church, and the mountain rising behind, covered with vineyards and terraces. The sound of the waves is wonderful. This would be a really good room for anyone who has difficulty with steps. Maria and Giacomo tolerated and helped me with my Italian, and we became good friends. We were sad to say good bye at the end of our visit--and we hope we see them again some day. This truly was a magical place to stay. We highly recommend both the room and Maria and Giacomo.

We had a wonderful 3night stay in the Charming Room! Perfect location on the water! The room is truly charming, with a nice bathroom. Perfect for a romantic weekend! The owners are very sweet and helpful!

The kitchen is very small though and not fully equipped, so if you dont plan to do to much cooking, this is the PERFECT place to stay!

I stayed in Maria Capellini's 'Charming Room' from April 7th to 11th 2008 inclusive, and despite inclement weather, it was wonderful! Marie and Giacomo greeted me warmly as I walked down from the station, it was a lovely feeling.
This room has been totally created with love and you feel it in every nook and cranny. Maria has such an eye for colour and detail. The toilet alone is worth the visit as it is so eco-friendly, it puts Nth America to shame. I loved the windows, too, such special effects!
I gott to know the people at the almost adjacent and tiny,coffeee and wine bar. They sell bread and sweet rolls as a morning breakfast but they provided me with hot water for my morning tea. They also serve hors d'oeuvres with wine in the evenings! Immediately next door to the Charming Room is a super ice cream store that's 25% cheaper than the one up in the village.
I'm not such an ardent walker that I wanted to walk in showers and drizzle, and had walked from Corniglia to Vernazza some 9 years ago, so I waited . However, the time wasn't wasted as I used the excellent trains to go from village to village, and then finally, on my last day, I HAD TO WALK. I did Riomaggiore to the second village via the Via Dell A'more. It was easy and surprisingly warm and wonderful!!
Thanks Maria and Giacomo!

Lovely owners (Giacomo and Maria) who are friendly and helpful. Easy to find which is always a blessing. Vernazza is a great town to base oneself in for 5T, we did the trek to Monterosso one day (which is probably the roughest part) and then the other towns the next day.
Clean, comfortable and warm. Close to train.
A few stairs to climb but manageable even with suitcases which is what we had.
Enjoy!
