“A great spot to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

This is a wondful place to stay in Monterosso or to make a base in Cinque Terre. The rooms are very clean and a good size and easily fit in a roll away bed with plenty of room still and the breakfast although typical european is very fresh with freshly made coffees. The walk into town takes 10 minutes down hill and maybe 20 back uphill. The trainstation is very near by. The onsite parking is very handy. Would have liked to have stayed longer

Right from the moment we arrived in this lovely B+B we felt very happy with our choice. Our hostess could not have been more friendly or helpful and our room was light and airy and had everything we could have wanted. There was plenty of information about what to see and do in Monterosso and the various options for seeing the Cinque Terre region, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. A special mention for the breakfasts which are superb.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cinque Terre and the location of Le Giare is superb.
The room is spacious and bathroom very practical, our only issue was the bed. It was so hard and the pillows also so hard, there also was not enough blankets so a little chilly. I didn't realise how much hard pillow and bed can really impact on your enjoyment of a room.
The wifi also wasn't in the room which was annoying more then anything.
However, Fredrica and her family have done a great job on the restoration of the B&B and the finishings and decor were perfect. The taxi is a fabulous and unique service that would be very useful to families or older travellers.
I would recommend this B&B to friends and family.

Nice modern house in a citrus garden just outside of Monterosso. Nice to be out of the city with more space and fresh air. 10 min walk to the city and the sea. Maybe 20 walking back uphill. Secure parking. They even offered us to leave the car there for the day after we had checked out. The room was a bit crowded and the bed not not very comfortable. Small but modern and nicely designed bathroom.Airco. The wifi hardly worked at all.
Good breakfast at the terrace.

. The B/В turned out to be a very nice place with a small lovely terrace overlooking the city. The rooms and a breakfast area surprised us with a really nice interior design. The location (the hotel is
located on top of a hill) was not a problem. The owner arranged for a taxi to pick us up from a railway station when we arrived. We even enjoyed walking up an down the stairs. Though this could be a problem for families with little children or elderly people. The owner was friendly and helpful.

The b&b is not new (well not our room at least) but it was clean and homely. We loved Frederica and her warm lovely family. Loved loved the breakfast room and the free taxi service. Highly recommend this place. It's a nice stroll to monterroso.

We found Le Giare in Monterosso al Mare on Trip Advisor and contacted them.
It turned out to s a very good place to stay while visiting Cinque Terre. The B&B is located in a new, separate building, and our room was of good size and very comfortable. The bathroom was also sufficiently large and comfortable.

The breakfast is served in a separate building, and was fine.
We were concerned about the fact that Le Giare is located outside of town and that one could walk in to town or take a taxi cab (the B&B has an arrangement with the cab company, and two trips per day into or from town are paid for by Le Giare.) But the walk is very quick -- maybe 10 minutes -- and even coming from town (uphill) wasn't too difficult. (I am 70 and my wife is 65 and both of us are in pretty good shape, and neither of us had a problem).

We would definitely return when we are in the area.
