We stayed in Gigi's Vermantino room for 3 nights in March. Gigi is very nice and quick to respond via email, text, or phone call. He emailed us ahead of time to check in before we arrived and once we got there, he was nice enough to make some restaurant recommendations and reservations for us. I can't say enough good things about Gigi - he was so friendly, accomodating, and really made our stay in Manarola really wonderful despite the bad weather that we unfortunately encountered during our 3 days there. Manarola itself was my favorite of the 5 towns and I am so happy that we ended up choosing it as our base - it's a quiet village but so picturesque and one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The apartment is about a 5-10 minute walk uphill from the train station and you get treated with great views on the trek up. Breakfast isn't included, but we did receive a discount at a cafe close to the train station tunnel that had wonderful pastries and coffee because we were staying at Gigi's. The room has a small balcony that looks over a stream that flows downhill through the village and it was nice to sit out on the balcony to enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the sound of the rushing water. The room itself was very clean and I was delighted to find that the bathroom was updated and modern. It was nice that there was also a mini fridge and safe and the WIFI connection worked beautifully. When we expressed interest about his wine, Gigi offered to give us a tour of his wine room where his vats are located. His wine was excellent - we ended up buying a small bottle to take home and would've bought more if we had room in our luggage. If the weather and time had permitted, he would have shown us his vineyard. I guess that will have to wait until the next time we visit the Cinque Terre - - we will be calling Gigi to stay at his place again!
