Franca, Andrea and their son Mattia were wonderful host. Very well balance between hospitality and privacy, not too intrusive and very helpful. We were a group of 7 people and rented the 3 available rooms.

I agree with most of the comments already mentioned in here. However, I wouldn't qualify the rooms as having only the "basic necessities"! The bathroom we had was very clean and brand new! The bed was good and we had a small TV (which we didn't care for when you look at the surroundings!). It's not basic to have access and use of a full kitchen with all the accessories (including fresh coffee, oil, sugar, etc ...). As indicated by other reviewers, when weather permits, the patio is wonderful for all sorts of activities and relaxation. We often used it for the aperitivo and antipasto before going to dinner at the restaurant next door (Ristorante Gli Ulivi). The breakfasts were the best we had in Italy for the 2 weeks. Often we had some "leftovers" we used for lunches.

We had a rented mini bus and appreciated the free parking at the B&B. However, the fact you had a car or not doesn't make a big difference because parking in Cinque Terre, in general, is scarce and expensive. The shuttle suited us well even if sometime it is a bit of a limitation. Be sure to buy your Cinque Terre passport for the shuttles (valid for all towns in Cinque Terre) and train. The only thing missing are the ferry boats (if required).

The place is very quiet and relaxing. I surely miss those evenings having a "digestif" on the patio after an excellent meal at Ristorante Gli Ulivi and looking at the moon reflecting on the vast Ligurian Sea!

We hope to return and recommended it!

I have to admit I was very worried about this B&B due to the lack of reviews online. However, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised. This place is pretty wonderful. The room and bathroom had the basic necessities. However, the view from the back patio is spectacular. As is the breakfast…that you eat on the patio facing the beautiful view of the sea. Just wonderful.

The only downfall would be if you don’t have a rental car. Volastra is at the top of the mountains and you have to rely on the park’s shuttle service that only comes at certain times throughout the day. Doable, just not always convenient.

Overall though, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we had the opportunity!!

This was really a terrific value: the room was spotless and the bathroom facilites were terrific. Volastra in October is very quiet, which was really nice. Don't expect to be well understood if you speak only English, but your hosts try very hard to please. You will need to buy the Cinque Terre rail card to use the shuttle bus. Access to Volastra for tourists without a car is only by shuttle bus which runs for about 12 consecutive hours each day at various posted times which vary by time of year. Don't miss the last bus (19:30) from Manarola as the hike to Volastra is 2km+ up steep hills. No taxis either! The breakfasts were plentiful and lovingly served, though no fruit was available. The lone local restaurant (50 yards away) is FANTASTIC, the best food (get the seafood) AND the best prices of any we experienced during the week (including Rome). Access to Cinque Terre hiking trails is literally right out the door. There is a take-away hot food (gastronomie?) facility nearby and a small store which is not always open. You might shop for food/wine in Manarola which is where you get on/off the shuttle bus after a short ride.

I've been to NiRia with a couple of friends whilst visiting Cinque Terre this summer. The place is not only a charming oasis of quietude upon the hills of Volastra, away from the bustling towns by the sea, but it is also carefully and familiarly served.
