We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage daughters and we stayed in the third solution for 3 nights in April 09. We found the accommodation great - plenty of room for us all. The view from the veranda was fantastic and great to sit and relax and enjoy some wine and cheese.
The service was great. Ugo met us at the station and showed us the way to the apartment along the lanes and up and down the stairs to reach the apartment showing us the food stores on the way. From the moment we emailed Gian Battista with our enquiry he was very helpful and quick to respond and we made our booking with no credit card details given - he confirmed our booking straight away and provide us with mobile numbers to contact his father, Ugo, as soon as we arrived at the station.
We had a lovely stay here. We visited the 5 towns and Riomaggiore was one of the most peaceful towns. All the towns are fantastic with so much character.
The only thing that we didn't like was the restaurant that was up the stairs with the best view over the water and to see the sunset selling frozen pasta meals that they heated in the microwave - such a shame considering all the lovely fresh food available. I would suggest buying a bottle of wine and sitting on the wall eating a pizza and enjoying the view.
These five towns are all beautiful with there own style. You will be more than happy to stay here. If you like more atmosphere and action maybe Monterosso will be more your style but you can't go past the service from Rio Rooms.
Enjoy Cinque Terre!
