Vacation Rental Giovanni Rooms - Manarola, Riomaggiore

Via Ettore Cozzani 22 Manarola - Riomaggiore

Price starting from 145 .00
The apartment is located in the earth of the historical center of Manarola, directly in the main plaza of the town, at 5 meters from the Church. The position, that dominates the entire town, will let you enjoy a superb view on everything : the wineyards and the hills around the town, the sea in front of you, the town with his colourful houses and the Church with his tiny plaza.
The apartment features a big and comfortable hall with crystal table, a big mirror, Tv Sat and a sofa. There are two double bedrooms, one new and complete kitchen and a complete bathroom with shower and hairdryer.
The unit also features two big balconies, one per each side of the house : from the one in the front you will enjoy an overwhelming view to the town, the sea and the hills around (check out pictures), and from the one in the back, that's bigger, you can enjoy a breakfast or a dinner while staring at the sun hitting the vineyards and at people walking through the trails to Corniglia.
Manarola, pretty famous by itself, becomes more famous during the Christmas period, due to the big Nativity Scene that an old fisherman of the Village build in a big field upon the hill : from this apartment you'll have a privileged view on this nativity scene, since the balcony in the front faces directly the Manarola Nativity Scene. It is quite an experience to see all these gigantic evangelic figures, 3 - 4 meters tall, that shine full of brights light in the Manarola night or during the sunset, comfortably sitting in your balcony.
The main fact about this apartment. aside from all the other things already described, is the quietness you will find. The Marina of Manarola, the seaside or the "businness and touristic center" of the town, is placed 100 meters away, while the historical center, the Church plaza, is perfect to enjoy the beauty of the town and the grand scenic view in a complete silence and quiet.
We offer many services for our customers to enjoy. The apartment is loaded with a wi - fi hi speed internet connection, a fridge also in the main hall, tea and coffee set and Tv Sat. Upon request, we can organize car transfers to airport or near cities - for those of you who wants to reach Manarola from La Spezia without train, we organize the "coastal road transfer", that takes you in the Manarola after driving through the beautiful coastal road of the Cinque Terre, called "Litoranea".

We stayed in several B&Bs during our 11 days in Italy. This one cost the most, and was the worst. There is NO air conditioning despite what the advertising says. There were ants everywhere. Only 2 rolls of toilet paper and 4 paper thin towels were provided for 3 people 3 days.

Giovanni called us to arrange arrival, there was a note on the door and keys in the rooms(Manarola is a sleepy town). The rooms were brand new, excellently furnished with high quality lighting, plumbing fixtures, and furniture. It was very small, but the space was well used. It had a beautiful view overlooking Manarola and the sea. It was a hike up to the main square at the top of the hill, but the view was the better for it. We admittedly had a lot of stuff but it was a hike up there, not for the faint of heart. There was no elevator but we were only 1 floor up, not too bad. We requested a crib in advance and it was provided for us.

Stayed at Manarola with myself and 3 friends for 2 nights. Wished we had booked for three. Giovanni was there to meet us and assist with our luggage. The apartment is up 33 steep stairs and of course we had "over packed"! We were on our own getting it back down but that was accomplished fairly easily. The view from the room is absolutely breath taking. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms roomy. We even had maid service which we did not expect. There is a bell tower near by that rings 7 times at 7 am and then another 33 times so if you get testy with this kind of noise that would be the only reason not to stay. We all thought it added to our stay. Even the steep uphill climb to the apt location is well worth it! Would definitely stay there again!

We enjoyed our stay at Giovanni's rooms--it was well worth the hike to the top of the hill! As this is not a hotel but rather flats in an apartment building be prepared to be flexible. Our guest room had been recently renovated with new state of the art bath room. The furnishings were simple, but stylish and clean. The view from our room was lovely!

This was a fantastic place that exceeded expectations. Giovonni was very welcoming, although we almost missed him because we didn't have email giving us last minute instructions on how to meet. The view is spectacular, the town wonderful with great stores and markets. We were here two days, and ended up preparing most of meals at room. It had everything we needed. Cleanliness was exceptional. I have no complaints and would highly recommend. Its hilly and has many stairs, so would be difficult for people with limited mobility. Most people should be able to handle
