We choose Manarola as it sounded picturesque, and Franco's place seemed to be not hard physically to reach and we were right! It is literally opposite the train station but not marked so we wandered around for a while before finding it. It's on top of a restaurant. That means it was noisy in the room by day but by 10pm, the restaurant had closed and silence ruled the streets until the church bells resumed around 7am and the village started waking up.
The room and ensuite bathroom were pleasant, welcoming and spotlessly clean. Only negative thing was that one of our mattresses dipped into a V shape, which meant one of us had an uncomfortable night (all the more unfortunate was that that was me!) . I wanted to tell Franco in the morning (we only stayed one night) but unfortunately we were rushing to catch a train so I hope he reads it here and I'm sure he will fix that because he was a genial man who obviously took a pride in his place.
There are around 30+ steep stairs to climb to reach the property BUT if you walk round the back of the building, far fewer steps, which is especially helpful with suitcases.
Cinque Terre is beautiful and Manarola was like a picture postcard.
