akakris04 My husband and I stayed at Il Girasole during our stay in Cinque Terre and we absolutely LOVED it. Stefano was incredibly helpful, Corniglia was by far our favorite of the 5 towns, and the room was charming, comfortable, and quiet. Admittedly, the room is at the top of a lot of stairs (63 to be exact - I counted after one long hike), but the payoff is the stunning view from the balcony - you overlook the hills, the town, and you can see some of the sea. Restaurants and stores are literally right outside, the people in Corniglia are the friendliest that I have met in Italy,and the town retains it's Italian small town charm without getting swept away by Cinque Terre's increasing popularity and tourism. Honestly, we couldn't have been happier and when we return to Cinque Terre (whether it's in 2 or 20 years), we will seek out Il Garisole again.
fabrice.demares Very nice place. Only one negative point : there is no window in this room, only a transparent peace of wall. This was disappointing when we arrived in the room after booking it via the Internet... This fact should be mentioned on the website before you pay...
sarahdoyle We were a couple staying in this apartment for 4 nights. We were so incredibly impressed with not only the accommodation, but also with the little village itself. We cooked every day in the fully equipped kitchen upstairs, but eating out in town was quite reasonably priced as well. The bedroom had air-con and an ensuite, and upstairs had the kitchen with a couch, dining table. fridge, etc. Outside was a little eating area, and then you also had the roof terrace, with another seating area and views (glimpses) of the ocean. The accommodation price was fantastic value for money. The lady who owned the apartment, Elizabetta, was extremely helpful and was always too happy to give guidence and advice with all our questons. The village, Corniglia, was definitely the quietest of all 5 villages along the Cinque Terre. Therefore if you are after a quiet and relaxing time, with hardly as many tourists, this is the place for you. There is also an amazing rock beach down at the base of Corniglia, which is gorgeous and not crowded at all. Fantastic for sun-bathing and swimming. We are definitely coming back again next year!!
dgrayson The room was small but comfortable and conveniently located. Instead of a double bed there were two single beds pushed together, which was okay except that the one had very rickety legs. The shared bathroom had a shower curtain that was several inches too short so the bathroom floor flooded whenever anyone showered. The mini-extractor fan was not up to the task, so there was permanent mildew on the bathroom walls and the door was swollen so it made a loud scraping noise when anyone tried to open or close it. Breakfast was very nice. Overall the accommodation was okay, but overpriced for what we got (as compared with accommodation we got elsewhere in Italy).
