“Great vision, not quite ready for prime time”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

The people behind Cerrolungo have a great plan for the property, and if they can execute (the positive attitude is definitely there, and they know everything isnt quite there yet) it will be outstanding, but... it's a work in progress and as long as you understand this and are ok with it you will have a pleasant stay. A lot of things just aren't quite finished yet, We stayed in the Pink room and the Blue room for one night. We arrived at night, Carlo was very helpful throughout our stay. The bathrooms are finished with high end fixtures and will be very nice when completed. The rooms smelled musty, but were clean. The website reservation system doesnt work yet, but email responses are timely. THe GPS directions are almost correct, start looking for the sign on your left as the Gps says you are getting close, as the Gps thinks the property is further up the road than it really is.

The road up the hill from La Spezia is challenging. I drove to Cinque Terre and to Bellagio and the road to Cerrlungo was the hardest of the three drives.

You will drink the wine from their own property, while sitting on the terrace enjoying a magnificent view. In the evening they offer a nice plate with local cheese and proscuito combined with drinks. In the morning the joyfull staff serves a nice breakfast with coffee and boiled eggs. A warm and homely stay!

We spent one night @ cerrolungo and I wish we could have stayed longer! The vue from the family house is beautiful (a vallée with vignards & mountains), accomodation is very authentic, cosy and comfortable & you can have great appetizers at the end of the afternoon (great wine, great food:))!

We spent a long weekend at Cerrolungo, and were very impressed with this genuinely Italian agriturismo. I say genuinely Italian because even though the structure seems to have been recently refurbished, the house and furniture are still very much in the classical, no-compromise-to-elegance Italian style that my partner and I know and love.

The views from the large upper floor terrace are spectacular, as you can see in their photos - this was quite important for us, and Elisa, the lady in charge of Cerrolungo, was kind enough to let us choose among any of the rooms that were available, and so we were lucky to receive one of the rooms with access to the terrace, and with a lovely view to the mountains. Needless to say, the "sleep quality" criterion receives 5 out of 5 stars, as there was nothing but the chirping birds to wake us up in the morning.

Breakfast was very good both in terms of quality and quantity. We asked for some specific type of cheese, and not only did Elisa immediately satisfy our whims, but we were also surprised to see that, at the end of our stay, these were not charged extra from the base B&B price!

Overall, the quality of this accommodation significantly contributed to how lovely our weekend has been, and we were reminded why we always prefer agriturismi to large hotels, because we were truly made to feel welcome, and had the feeling of staying at a friend's house rather than paying for accommodation.

Could not recommend more, and we hope to be back soon. Grazie mille Elisa!
