From the small alley (passage) on the back of the building, you step a few steps down to enter the apartment. It is well lit and tastefully decorated. A hallway leads through the apartment with a bedroom on each side. Both rooms have a double bed - and one has even a spacious private bathroom with a toilet and shower. In the hallway there is another bathroom with a toilet and shower. There is an open plan kitchen (equipped with 4 hotplates, an oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer) and a comfortable leather sofa (which also serves as practical sofa bed for two people) and a round table with matching chairs. From here you have access to the elongated balcony with chairs and a fine view of the town's colourful facades, the sea and the green hillsides on the other side of the valley. Other convenient amenities in the apartment includes both air conditioning, Wi-Fi, an iPod dock, LCD satellite TV and a washing machine.
Please note: Sunday arrivals between 1 April to 1 October are only possible between the hours of 14:00 to 18:00.
The apartment has 2 small bedrooms each with a double bed and a kitchen. The highlight of "Balcone Castello" is the small balcony with panoramic views over Manarola and the Cinque Terre coast, which is reached by one of the two bedrooms. It is in the shaded until the afternoon, and when the sun sets you have a great view. If you are with 4 people in the apartment, it becomes very tight. The kitchen is at the same time the living room for everyone joining at the small table. The apartment amenities are a bit older, kitchen equipment is incomplete. Very friendly and helpful was the local renting agency, and they found the small defects quickly.
Fresh, simple and comfortable accommodation in one of the most charming villages in Cinque Terre. Fantastic view from the apartment, which really amazes you! The apartment had everything we needed, fresh toilet and lies a few minutes away from the train station (Please do note that, it is a pretty steep trip up hill, but a little exercise never hurt). As everywhere in Italy, the beds can seem hard, but you accept it, and you don't really want to spend a lot of time in bed, when a place like this is so beautiful. We got a friendly reception, when we arrived, and a representative came and escorted us to our apartment and showed us a couple of practical details. For you dependent on Wifi, be aware that, it doesn't always work as it should. But on the other side, you could drop facebook for a while. All in all, this place on Earth is recommended, and this apartment won't disappoint you.
