My husband & I spent 3 nights at the Il Timone for our 10th wedding anniversary and what a treat! Francesco is extremely friendly and helpful! He gave us fabulous recommendations for dining and beaches which we enjoyed immensely and helped make our time in the Cinque Terre very special. His Mother is lovely and made a scrumptious breakfast for us each morning which his girlfriend Frederika brought to us on the roof of the B&B!
The views of Monterosso were lovely and it was a very special way to start our days there.
The building is quiet and we had free wifi for our entire stay as well as access to a laptop computer if we needed it and we did take advantage of it once. Otherwise my smartphone worked great on their wifi connection, all I had to do was be in the building and it connected! Wonderful, not always the case in Europe...nice treat!
At the end of the day we'd come back from hiking or swimming and there would be homemade limoncello or grappa waiting for us! We went down to one of two of the bars that Francesco works at and he was usually there in the evening and would bring us fabulous appetizers and drinks! Very, very wonderful experience!!!
I had torn a strap on a sundress while we were there and his Mother gave me needle and thread from her personal sewing kit to fix it. She actually offered to do it for me but I took care of it myself. They are very friendly and helpful and we felt as though we had been taken into their home and treated as a king & queen! Thank you so much Francesco, Frederika and Mom for helping make our trip special and memorable! We wish you all the best in life!
