“Lovely, lovely, lovely”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

You'll be very happy you choose this place. It's an easy 10-15 min walk from the train station. Alba, the owner is gorgeous. Her English is a little limited but she more than makes up for that with her shining personality and she whips out the dictionary when necessary. The place itself is beautiful - clean, comfortable and characterful. The breakfast is heaven - homemade cakes etc.
It is a short walk from the sea (you can see it from the balcony from your room) and Alba recommended a good restaurant called 'Greens' just a short walk away that does huge pizzas for 8 euros and lots of other stuff (actually I think I should have ordered the local focaccia giant 'sandwiches' seeing what the locals were eating there).

There are only two rooms. I don't know if there is normally a difference in price between them. We booked in advanced (no deposit) and paid 60 euros as quoted on departure. The first room we were given was nice and spacious but not ensuite (though it had a big private bathroom close by) but the main problem was - it was facing a busy road and you could clearly hear the traffic even with the windows closed. The free ear plugs on the dressing table were a bit of a giveaway! I asked Alba if the other room was occupied yet and she swapped us and gave out room to an elderly couple you arrived later (and reported to us in the morning that had slept very well thankfully for my conscience). Our room at the back had it all - ensuite, balcony, seaviews, absolutely quiet and serene... there's no two ways about it - you need to request this room and this room only! Leave the other one for the people who don't use Tripadvisor!

I wish I had some photos of this fantastic place but after 4 days in Tuscany and Cinque Terre my camera's memory was full! But you won't be disappointed - it's fab.

I chose this B&B based on the very positive reviews and I was very happy about this decision. The rooms are very beautiful and clean.The owners are lovely, the breakfast was very nice. The location is perfect, the tran station is cca. 15 minutes away (even with suitcases) by foot.
