This is an interesting alternative to staying in one of the Cinque Terre towns. Volastra is charming and not touristy at all. It is quiet and the weather is cooler on the hill. Rooms are large but not luxurious. Antonella was very helpful and friendly. The only downside is that the last shuttle bus to Volastra from Manarola is at... More

Hotel is situated conveniently just outside the Cinque Terre National Park which makes it convenient if travelling with a car (The drive is very scenic and worth doing). The hotel offers a small garage which I managed to park a Form Mondeo in. Be careful if arriving on a Tuesday since the one restaurant in the small town of Volastra... More

We loved Hotel Il Saraceno for a number of reasons. First, it is in the hills of Volastra, a small picturesque village above the main towns of the Terre. We were driving and the hotel provided secure off street parking in their garage. There was a bus that stopped just up the street from the door which took us to... More

My son and I stumbled upon this hotel during a recent visit to cinque terre. What a find! Modern, minimalist, wonderfully accommodating hosts. Antonella is a sweetheart, so helpful, friendly, and willing to share her tips for the area. Her restaurant suggestion was fabulous, and we had a delicious dinner that we will not soon forget. Comfortable beds, wonderful views,... More

Il Saraceno is a small B&B in Volastra, high above Manarola in the CInque Terre. The room was lovely with an excellent bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was perfect before we started out in the morning. What a view from Volastra bus stop down to the sea! Vineyards everywhere, terraced down the hills. The bus is a... More

I've been in this hotel in September 2010. Great place with a quiet neighborhood, very clean,decent breakfast and the hospitality of Antonella, one of the owners of the hotel. I would stay there in a next visit to cinque terre.

This is a little place (4-5 rooms) but with a very big heart and incredible hospitality by it's owner, Antonella. It is located above Cinque Terre but local transportation goes up and the down the road many times daily thus eliminating your need to park in Cinque Terre which can be expensive if you don't know where to look. Antonella's... More

This was a lovely place to stay. Antonella was warm and friendly and very helpful. As there was no restaurant in Volastra serving dinner, we bought our dinner at the local take-away, and ate it in the hotel restaurant. This was good, home cooked food and much appreciated. Il Saraceno is modern, and our room and bathroom were clean and... More
