What Past Guests Are Saying
Super house, high on a hill, with beautiful views of the harbor. Very well cared for property with a lot of history too. Kitchen was very comfortable with a large refrigerator, nice oven and stove top. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable as was the rest of the house. It would be worth repeating. The proprietor made everything more enjoyable and our time there was very pleasant. Easy to get to the train station by car (train station had great secure parking).

Can't think of a thing.
The peacefulness and beauty.
Tricia's review of Villa Anastasia
The whole family enjoyed our week in the villa. The owner was very warm and welcoming. She gave us a huge basket of fresh fruit and vegetables from the market, plus some pasta and a bottle of Chianti, so that we wouldn't have to shop on our first night. She also gave us some good travel recommendations and she took us into town a couple of mornings later, to show us where to buy the best produce and where to get the best pizza. There were lots of thoughtful touches - lotions, shampoos, soap, tissues, adaptor plugs, radio, CD's and player, hair dryer. She also provided swim towels. It really felt like home. The housekeeper came twice during our stay to clean, wash any pots and pans etc. and to provide clean towels. We did not use the spa-pool as we preferred swimming in the Mediterranean. It might be more useful in cooler weather as it is much more a spa than a pool - it is only 15 ft x 9ft and made of fibre glass.
We loved the patios which had great views and were wonderful for outdoor dining. We had breakfast on the kitchen-side patio every morning. We loved the coziness of the kitchen and family room area. The cooks could socialize with the rest of the family while cooking. The living room was also a nice spot during the day.
The master bed was on a raised platform with two steps. They were a bit of a hazard, especially if you had to get up during the night. The master bath was very spacious and modern. The bed in one of the other rooms - which was a lovely room with a great view and a balcony - was only a full-size bed not totally comfortable for an adult couple. The shared bathroom smelled a bit musty at times but was generally OK. The bathroom downstairs was fine.
We thought the living room would have been more warm and welcoming in the evening with softer lighting - such as some standing lamps instead of the overhead candelabra. Also, the pillows were uncomfortable.
We loved the views of the bay and the privacy, while only being a short walk to a restaurant, the bus, the supermarket and a patisserie. The garden and surrounding trees were lush, with a hammock and fountains. Very peaceful.
Albert's review of Villa Anastasia
Spacious and beautiful property. Wonderful views. Covered terrace was a pleasure. On site parking very convienent.
Continual electrical failures and blackouts with minimal appliance use. Blue bedroom beds unusable. Kitchen equipment was old. Dirty drawers and shelves in 2nd floor bath. Shower door in 2nd floor bath not operating properly. Heavy glass closet door in master bedroom came off track.
Villages on the coast.
Kenneth's review of Villa Anastasia
We really enjoyed our stay and found the owners very helpful and friendly. The owner's small carriage home is on the property and the owner was there during our stay.
The great outdoor living spaces. The views.
The small kitchen. It's difficult to safely turn your car around in the parking area at the top of a steep driveway, especially when your group has more than one car at the property. The housekeeper and her husband live in the back part of the home and were quite loud late in the evening.
The views and close proximity to Cinque Terre and other small towns-cities around the Bay of Poets.
Carole's review of Villa Anastasia
The villa was homey and comfortable.
The views and the 3 terraces were wonderful. Annalisa and Daniela were wonderful property managers - so fun and so very helpful.
The big steep hill, but after a few days your muscles stopped complaining, it was great exercise.
So close to the Cinque Terre. A trip to Lucca is a must. The walk between the Cinque Terre towns made the trip for me.
Connie's review of Villa Anastasia
The property itself is beautiful, and the views are wonderful. The villa is absolutely beautiful, and well positioned for our adventures in Cinque Terre. Can't wait to revisit this wonderful part of Italy!
We had good access to the bus and train station, and also were fairly close to the ferries. And at the same time, the villa was well away from the touristy areas. The owner of the villa was also very accommodating. She spent two days with us taking us to Portovenere, and also to the huge market in La Spezia. The owner is a great bonus to the beautiful experience of the villa. She gave all kind of great cookings tips. In fact, she has become a friend.
The walk up the hill to the villa. Be prepared to walk up a fairly steep hill if you do not drive your car. The dryer and dishwasher were broken, and one of the water heaters in one bathroom didn't work, which was inconvenient for those using that bathroom. Apparently this was a result of the previous renters. The owner let us know right up front about these problems, and she tried her best to get the appliances fixed as fast as possible. No dryer, however.
