If these things are important for you I suggest you to book your room in the village. If these things are not important I guarantee you a memorable stay. SHARK ROOM - 15 square meters - 3 sleeping accomodation Double Sofabed or bunk bed (you can arrange the beds like you prefer) Bathroom inside, shower outside in separate room Fan hot/cold (no air-conditioning) Ours is a stone house built about 400 years ago, and is surrounded by nature. Wild animals such as wild boars, foxes, rodents, and other animals are regular inhabitants of this area. An area protected by UNESCO. There are not particular problems if you observe the standards of living in the countryside, but if the rural life is not for you and you are not adaptable it's better that you book your room in one of the villages. We will do our best to make your stay in our house is as relaxing and comfortable as possible but life in countryside has its own positive and negative sides. DESCRIPTION of HOUSE Our house is the 'only' accommodation along the Blue Path, between Corniglia and Vernazza (2 km far both), in a tiny hamlet named 'Prevo' with a breathtaking view, away from the crowds of the villages, right overlooking the famous Guvano beach. in the highest and most impressive spot (208 m. Above sea level), with an unrivaled view of 4 islands: Elba, Gorgona, Capraia and Corsica (France). It is located on top of a cliff that breaks out into the sea, facing south. All around the house there are olive trees and fruit trees, vineyards and other vegetation. The house has been renovated with taste and simplicity, trying to preserve as much as possible to its historical roots. VERY IMPORTANT: Like all around the Mediterranean coast, in the 5 Terre are found many insects such as mosquitoes, bees, wasps, sand flies etc. Therefore it is strongly recommended to apply insect repellents after sunset. Please note that there aren't mosquito nets in the rooms. More

Great place to stay, felt welcomed and the owner couldn't do enough to help us. It was a great location and great fun walking each way to discover the different villages. Definitely didn;t miss the luxuries as the views and atmosphere just outweighed everything.

About the neighbourhood
The Cinque Terre National Park with its 4,300 acres is the smallest National Park in Italy and at the same time the most densely populated, with 5,000 residents in five villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. Here man in more than a thousand years has 'changed' the natural environment by dissecting the steep slopes of the hills to obtain strips of arable land, the so-called “ciàn” (local dialect), supported by about seven thousand miles of stone walls, the length of the Great Wall of China. This tract is the real identity of the Cinque Terre, with a highly unusual man-made landscape. That’s why it is the Park made by man, an area that became a World Heritage Site.
Getting around
