“The charming place where time just magically stops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2008

Piccolo Blu has few amazing rooms just at the entry to Cinque Terre National Park. The rooms have a view on the Mediterranean Sea.

Each room has a name of a Constellation - Cassiopeia etc.
Just a perfect place to let your head drift and dream :)

The rooms are well sized, are very clean and tastefully decorated.
We have had a peaceful stay in relaxing environment. The only noise you hear is that of the sea and birds! And you are just on the hiking trails of the Cinque Terre. Grab wine cheese backpack and indulge the area where people don rush and take time to enjoy themselves.

The Piccolo Blu restaurant has delicious local food.
The easy to go finger food, salads, sweets were a great and healthy treat for us coming to Campiglia from San Francisco

If you are looking for a quiet mountain top B&B retreat in a certuries old quaint italian village in the Tuscan region, at the uppermost part of Cinque Terre (Italy's National Park), with graduated walking trails through the mountains and down to the beach, views overlooking the Mediterranean ocean with Corsica and the French Alps across the horizon, with updated amenities and fabulous local cuisine, you MUST visit Piccoloblu. Privately owned by local family, they make it their goal to cater to your every need in true Italian warmth and style. This would make a fabulous honeymoon destination, as well as a place where you can loose yourself and become one with the ambiance and living the life of another time and place.

We came upon Piccolo Blu during a walk to Portovenere from Riomaggiore. The setting is beautiful and the people who run it are absolutely charming - helpful, enthusiastic and friendly. Everything is very freshly renovated and sparkling. The food in the restaurant is lovely - simple, homemade with local ingredients. Very nice salads and a delicious spinach and ricotta tart. Ravioli also delicious according to another member of our party, although I didn't taste it. Particularly good coffee too. Not by the sea, but an hour and a half's walk to Portovenere and about 45 minutes to the bus for Riomaggiore - both walks through national park. At Piccolo Blu itself a good playground for children and the best hammocks I've ever been in. Very relaxing place to be with small children I would imagine.

  • Liked — Attitude of hotel owners
  • Disliked — Accessbility - although its remoteness also means it is quiet
