Reviewed 31 May 2014

Levanto is one train stop away from Cinque Terre. It is a lovely town and very conveniently located... 5 minutes away from Monerosso the first island of CT. We arrived in Levanto by train and the directions to Adurmi were easy to follow and about a five minute walk from the station. It is a lovely B&B. The rooms are clean and large and the bathroom is great. The walls are a little thin so you can hear your neighbours but that is the only fault. The garden is lovely with lots of tables and chairs.... The breakfast is not included in the price and costs 7 euros extra. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful. The best part of the B&B are the owners. It is run by two sisters and their mother. They are so friendly, warm and helpful... nothing is too much for them. On our last day, they even offered to drive us to the train station so that we didn't have to lug our large suitcaset.... I would definately recommend this lovely place.... and a special thank you to the wonderful women that run the place! (Nearly forgot to mention, wifi only really works in the dining room.... no wifi in the rooms....)

We stayed in Levanto for 2 nights in May to explore the Cinque Terre. Although Levanto is not technically part of the Cinque Terre, it is a convenient place to stay when visiting the Cinque Terre. A Durmi is very close to the train station (to get to the Cinque Terre), the beach, and Levanto's downtown. Our room at A Durmi was very clean - our room didn't have any windows (only glass doors), which was a downside as we couldn't have any fresh air at night.

This is a very basic B&B but one of the best bargains in town!...We stayed in a one bedroom apartment (comes with a kitchenette). Our apartment was on the second floor with a lovely terrace overlooking the garden. It was well equipped, homey and immaculately clean. This was exactly what we needed for our 4 day hiking (trekking) adventure around "Cinque Terre". A Durmi's location is unbeatable. You can walk to the train station in 5 minutes. They have a parking garage on premises (for an extra 5 Euros per day). The checkout time is a little early (10:00 AM), but they were very flexible with it. I must thank Chiara for all the help she had provided for us!...

Room Tip: If you have young children you might want to stay on the first floor, so the kids can easily go out...

We stayed here for 3 days in April 2014, and felt really cherished. I really appreciated A. Durmi's garden--a great working vegetable garden, with borage, canna, lemon trees, camellia and heaps more. The courtyard is a lovely space shared by the guests--great pebble mosaic, and big bowls of interesting succulents. We enjoyed the breakfasts of fruit, fresh bread and pastries, cheeses, prosciutto. I learned I like kumquats! The family who runs A. Durmi is wonderful. On arrival, Eliza made us cappuccinos and then told us about Levanto including walks and 2 great restaurants; made walking recommendations for Cinque Terre, and told us about a fabulous bike ride (flat and gorgeous). Chiara is just as great as Eliza. She speaks English and French fluently (maybe more), and did many kind things for us. Chiara used to live in San Francisco, and loves to travel, and takes good care of her traveling guests! And Mom sings in a lovely voice while she gardens. Plus Levanto is a great city to explore, and very pedestrian friendly, and great staging area for visiting Cinque Terre. We recommend also taking the ferry to Porto Venere. Chiara can tell you where to buy fabulous pesto! Ciao!

We stayed here for 2 nights 31st march and 1st April 2014. The room was quiet, very clean and room enough for us and our 9yr old son as well as opening out onto a lovely courtyard garden. The best part about A Durmi are the family who run it, they simply cannot do enough for you, nothing is a problem and you will get excellent advice about visiting the Cinque Terre and Great places to see and eat in Levanto as well. Don't hesitate to book here for visiting the Cinque Terre, you won't find better.

We stayed 4 nights in the B&b and were very pleased with our choice of accommodation, and also staying in Levanto. The CT is very busy and Levanto is a little more laid back and lovely. It is so close to the train and to the ferry to move around the CT.
The girls Elisa and Chiara were wonderful to us. Very helpful in suggestions and how to get to different places, timetables and info all cheerfully provided. A Durmi is comfortable and clean and the girls made us feel so welcome, as if we were special guests, rather than just clients. Elisa went right out of her way to help me, when I had accidently left my backpack at a train station back in Stresa. After she made many phone calls for me, the bag was located and sent onto our next accommodation. Chiara also showed her concern and made me feel a lot more relaxed after that stressful day. Can't thank Elisa and Chiara enough, for their warm friendly hospitality and assistance. Highly recommended!!

If you are going to the Cinque Terre, I highly recommend staying in Levanto. It is just a quick train ride away from all the towns in the Cinque Terre and miles away from all the tourists. A Durmi is just lovely. I stayed in a spacious apartment there which was very clean. It was spacious and had a fully stocked kitchen. Upon arrival, Chiara sat down with me and provided in depth information about all the hikes and other activities in the area. Both her and her sister, Elisa were always available and willing to provide recommendations. They truly made me feel at home. When I return to the region, I will definitely stay at A Durmi. Ciao!!!
