Cinque Terre Resources For Travelers
Accommodation: I Limoni di Thule
Christina has been getting rave reviews from her clients for over a decade with her warm and friendly hospitality. Christina’s a great person to be connected to — originally from England but a long time Riomaggiore resident. You’ll be hosted on her family’s property in a quiet residential neighborhood just steps away from the castle of Riomaggiore. Choose from a studio with kitchenette or standard room, both with balconies and incredible sea views from your bed. You can wake up and hear the waves crashing! I Limoni has always offered excellent value, and many people return here year after year. A bonus feature of this accommodation is that it’s accessible by road, so if you’re driving in Italy this is the ultimate solution. If you’re taking the train, it’s easy to find on foot.

Accommodation: Casa Lorenza
Lorenza, one of the most helpful people you’ll ever meet, bends over backward to please her guests and make sure they have the stay of their lives in the village of Riomaggiore. She offers visitors two choices for accommodation, rooms or an apartment. The apartment has a lovely outdoor green space with table and chairs for al fresco dining and great views. The rooms have balconies, and they all have sweeping views of the village and sea. The location is Via di Loca, one of the most desirable areas in town. You feel like you’re in another world — a peaceful, residential neighborhood, despite being just off the main drag with easy access to all you need in Riomaggiore within walking distance.

Accommodation: Gramsci 31, J&K Guesthouse
Martha’s properties are all brand new, in the heart of Riomaggiore – a stone’s throw to the marina, a quick walk to the train station and steps to restaurants and shops! She’s originally from California, living in Riomaggiore for 10+ years, so she’s ultra connected. She makes sure every guest is taken care of by helping you with a personalized itinerary – booking restaurants, cooking classes, hiking tours, boat tours (her husband owns a boat tour company in Riomaggiore) or anything you’re interested in doing! You can’t go wrong with Martha – modern, clean accommodations in the historical center of Riomaggiore with a hostess who’s willing to go the extra mile.

Accommodation: La Torretta Lodge
One of the chicest places to stay in the villages, La Torretta is a ten room boutique hotel built around a 17th century tower. All the rooms and suites have sea views and independent entrances. They go above and beyond service with included private transfers from the La Spezia train station, which is an incredibly unique offering for their clients — no hassling with trains and luggage. It doesn’t get any easier. We adore their lobby and room styling, filled with art, stunning wallpapers, and objects. The vibe is more chic private home than hotel, and we love the views, the quiet location in the village of Manarola, the nightly (included) aperitivo sessions and of course the hot tub which is uncommon in these parts. La Torretta has always been a favorite among the villages for the design-minded and luxury seeking traveler.
Distance to Manarola train station: 400 m (7 min walking)
Distance to Manarola parking lot: 550 m (8 min walking)

Accommodation: Il BoMa
Maddy is a great resource should you be traveling to Riomaggiore as she has seven properties for you to choose from. Her rooms, apartments, and B&B options are all located in great locations within walking distance to all amenities in Riomaggiore. Maddy is originally from New York, but her parents are from Riomaggiore. On one visit to her homeland of Italy, she met her now-husband, and after many years of running a restaurant in Riomaggiore, they now rent practical lodgings to travelers. Our fave place in her collection is Apartment Gabri — renovated and great value. With a stunning view over the hillsides and the sea, a location like this is just what you dream about when you’re at home planning a trip. It’s so handy to have a kitchen if you’re staying more than a few days (if you want to save some cash and don’t need the kitchen but still want those views — Maddy can accommodate that).

Accommodation: Allo Scalo dei Mille
Owned by Denise, who was raised in New York by her Riomaggioresi parents and moved “back home” to the Cinque Terre in adulthood, Allo Scalo dei Mille’s initial draw is that it’s located right smack in the middle of the picture postcard shot of the marina that epitomizes these five towns. What gets it the great reviews are its three beautifully restored, elegantly furnished sea-view rooms in a 13th-century building (the Anita room has a gorgeous little balcony too), the friendly and helpful staff, and of course waking up to the sound of waves lapping just outside your door. The beach, the train station, great restaurants and the main street are all just steps away from this exceptionally positioned property.
Distance to Riomaggiore train station: 400 m (6 min walking)
