Once again, I was fortunate to return to Monterosso and the Hotel Villa Steno. Matteo and Carla are the warmest and kindest of hosts imaginable. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and offer many tips on where and what to visit, restaurants, and hiking trails. The breakfast is worth the stay - best coffee of any place in Italy, great homemade marmalades and jams, meats and cheeses, fresh scrambled eggs which are "yummy" (and I don't even particularly like eggs!), juices, breads, homemade cakes, cookies, fruit, yogurt, cereals, and more. Eating on the terrace with a view of the sea and the town or indoors is equally pleasant. Rooms are clean, nice size, electric tea kettle, painted with warm colors, have air-conditioning, and most have terraces or balconies with wonderful views of the sea. The terrace above the hotel provides a quiet spot for reading, sunbathing, relaxing, and taking in the views.
Hotel Villa Steno is a "must stay" hotel if you are in the Cinque Terre area.
