Choosing to stay at La Scogliera is one of the best decisions my wife made for our trip to Italy. Before going, we spent quite some time doing research and debating as to where to stay. We're so glad that we chose Riomaggiore out of the five towns of Cinque Terre and picked La Scogliera. My only regret is not being able to stay there for a few more days!
La Scogliera is located right next to the harbor of Riomaggiore. The bedroom is spacious and tidy. It comes with a nice balcony and wonderful views of the sea (from the bedroom, the kitchen and even the bathroom). But what makes this truly a wonderful place to stay is the warmth and hospitality shown by owner Paolo, his mother Maria and his nephew David.
Before arriving, I was a bit worried about the location as we traveled with heavy luggage and I read from the internet that it takes some climbing to reach the place. But Paolo kindly arranged for David to pick us up at the train station (he had to work in another place that day), who helped us with the luggage.
We had an excellent stay at the apartment, which provided most of the basic necessities needed for a short stay.
Paulo went out of his way to help us in our last two days in Cinque Terre. We wanted to extend our stay at La Scogliera for two more nights but unfortunately the room was booked by another guest. Paulo took the trouble and found a nice apartment for us and he even carried all the luggages for us to the new place!
