It is impossible to find somewhere more central, whilst still being able to enjoy peace and quiet. From the balcony you can enjoy views of the sea and vineyards scattered around the hillside.

The rooms are lovely and really clean. The balcony is small, but useful and has a wonderful view.
Fantastic central place with bath and balcony in the middle of Corniglia. The place was ideal as starting point for our exploration of the 5 cities and the hiking trails in Cinque Terre.
Room, toilet and balcony very good. But we lacked one.
One big drawback: A beautiful ring, but very intrusive church bells, that even rang at night, which made it difficult to sleep.
We asked for a boiler at the arrivel and the host came immediately with one that we could borrow.
We think Corniglia was the perfect village to stay in when exploring Cinque Terre as it is situated in the middle of the area and is more quiet and less touristy than the other villages. The locals were very friendly and the surroundings wonderful.From the first moment our hostess was kind and helpful and check-in/check-out was uncomplicated.
