“Can't say enough about this special place!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We had a lovely stay here and were treated to wonderful hospitality by Marco and Angela! The atmosphere of this B and B was so great. We felt as if we were staying with friends. The terraces were lovely, the room and bathroom were clean and well maintained, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was very good, the A/C and wifi both worked very well. Marco and Angela met our every need with a smile. The only thing to be aware of is the hike to reach this lovely place. It isn't for everyone, but for those who are able it is worth every step! Pack light :) We can't wait to return!

The reviewers who recommend good shoes and light packing are right. It is a vertical hike up from the village but worth every step. We stayed upstairs and enjoyed the terrace each night--watch the lights on the few boats and enjoy the cool breezes. Before the sun sets, there are terrific views of the sea, Vernazza and Monterosso. I have stayed twice and it is not just clean and comfortable, it's magical. Every guest I met (usually when they arrive awed by the hike or in the lovely breakfast room) was friendly and from so many different places! We fell in love with the dog. Angela and Fabio are gracious and generous. They let us use the washer and the clothesline--so you don't need to bring a lot of clothing. The house is a refuge from the crush of tourists, quiet at night and welcoming during the day. Do spend time getting to know your hosts--they have helpful information and really enjoy meeting their guests.

Room Tip: Upstairs room has access to the upper terrace. But quiet and light everywhere.

Fabio & Angela are the most caring hosts we could imagine, embracing us for our warm stay. This truly fabulous couple from Genoa opens their phenomenal home: every single step to get there (not too many, don't worry) will be rewarded beyond your dream with superb location, open space & spirit, peaceful ambience and last-but-not least that unforgetable view. Ask for the only guest room with sea view (and duvet, in Italy!) and direct access to the wide veranda!
If you read this, then you found indeed the perfect place in 5Terre: do NOT travel further in a hurry! Here's the ideal base to explore not only the 5 tiny, narrow villages (UNESCO world heritage site for their 6.000 km (!) of stone terraces), but also famous Portofino (by boat from Vernazza only on Wednesday + Friday at 10am) and precious Portovenere (scienic boat trip leaving Vernazza every day at 10h20). Or just inhale this really "fantastico" view from Fabio's veranda. Final tips: 1. Not every train stops in Vernazza, which is certainly the prettiest of these Five for it's watch tower and harbour. 2. Prepare yourself prior with the DVD "Footloose in Italy" (Grindelwald.co.uk) from Amazon.

Spent one night at L'Eremo sul Mare in June 2013. Had an amazing stay. This B&B had a unique cozy cottage feel. Very rustic and relaxing. Very quite, nestled above Vernazza. The walk is about a 15 min hike up from the main village. The view was fantastic and worth the short walk. Pack lightly and wear comfortable shoes. The owners were extremely welcoming, warm, and friendly, so much so that they invited us to stay the next day for lunch. The nicest people I've ever met. There was a fantastic terrace where you can unwind and relax overlooking the sea. The breakfast was delicious. They made homemade hot chocolate and orange juice made from oranges grown right on their property! I would highly recommend staying here.

This is a special place...there are some drawbacks...the 30 minute hike and the owners smoke (not much smell) a bit. We loved it. A super unique place to stay. If you like something off the beaten track, stay here.

Fabio and Angela were the best hosts. The view from the room and terrace were amazing. You could not ask to meet two nicer people. They made sure everything was just so for us.
The hike up was tough and steep but getting out of the crowds was well worth it.

I encourage you to stay here and enjoy the peace and quiet. You will not be disappointed at all !

We read about it, we looked it up on the Internet, we stayed there for three nights and really enjoyed our room with seaview terrace! The Eremo sul Mare is a quiet and charming place. The hosts are welcoming and they speak a few languages (English, Italian, French). The hike up the walking trail is well indicated and their house is easy to find. They serve a good breakfast and the hot chocolate is just amazing!!!! Definitely the place to stay in order to appreciate this world heritage site!!
