Step free access to accommodation

Hoping someone out there can suggest potential accommodation in cinque terre that has step free access.... (a tall order I know). We are aware of how inaccessible the region is but can manage with accommodation that is step free (i.e. while I use a wheelchair we can manage without any modifications to the room or bathroom etc provided we can get to it!). We are also aware we will be very limited in what we can see but still hope to stay there a couple of days and soak up what we can. Any suggestions, advice would be most appreciated. Cost and star rating are not a major concern. Thanks! Laurel

Check out places in the new town of Monterosso, such as A Ca Du Gigante bnb, hotel la spiaggia, Albergo punta mesco, hotel Palme and villa Adrianna. The new town is a flat stretch of seaside promenade from the station and the last few hotels I recommended have elevators. A Ca Du Gigante is on the ground floor (the standard rooms are) and has a wheelchair accessible shower.

Keep in mind though that all of the train stations have stairs to get from one track to the other or get out of the station, and none are equipped with elevators.

Absolutely! Just confirm you have a room on the ground floor. Enjoy :)
