“Stunning views! Wonderful owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2008

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day vacation in Italy where we spent three days/two nights at La Baia di Rio. The property was very easy to find using the directions Emiliano and Maristella provide on their Web site, and they are easily accessible by telephone if you are lost or need anything at all. Even though they do not live on the property, they spend a lot of time there and are friendly, warm, and eager to offer their assistance, if it is needed. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on---La Lampara at the bottom of the hill near Riomaggiore's town center was fantastic!

This apartment cluster is all about the views! Every view is spectacular in every direction. We didn't post any photos because the ones already posted speak for themselves. Just gorgeous!

Addressing another reviewer's comments below: The decor of the apartment was very modern and comfortable, and it is typically furnished in European style (the "double" bed is two twin beds pushed together and the bathroom is a little tight); however, my husband is 6' 9" tall (over two meters tall), and we were still very comfortable. And, remember that this is an apartment, not a hotel, so toiletries, food, etc., must be brought. We expected this, so we were not surprised.

We would highly recommend La Baia di Rio!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Baia de Rio and were extremely pleased with the accomodations. Emeliano met us at our train and as the doors opened asked my name and greeted us warmly. He helped us up to our room and gave us all the information about the Cinque Terre and all of the little tidbits about customs. We had a wonderful view of the sea and the town and could hear the waves crashing on the rocks as we slept. He recommended places to eat, things to, and what should be avoided. It was very helpful.

I absolutely plan on going back as the hospitality and accomodations were more than expected. Riomaggiore is the most beautiful of the 5 towns, IMO. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to see Emeliano and Estella again.

Ciao ciao,
Jake and Debbie

We had an unpleasant stay at La Baia. First, the only way to access the owners is by cell phone since they don't live at the apartments. We arrived slightly past when we thought and the hotel was hard to find so we spent 1.5 hours trying to find it late in the evening. When we finally got to our room, it was bare bones. They didn't provide any toiletries: soap, shampoo, etc. and the bed was two twins pushed together. The terrace view was nice.
