What Past Guests Are Saying

A very lovely stay
We spent 3 nights in early May. It was delightful, a great location and very efficient. The view from the small terrace is lovely. The apartment is nicely laid out and has all of the amenities you need. Manarola is delightful and it is easy to cruise to the other towns or take the train. A very sweet spot. Arbaspaa was great to work with and I would not hesitate to use them again.
enjoyed my stay!
I was meeting up with some friends who were staying at another apartment. I liked this apartment. Can sleep 3 people comfortably. Was spacious enough and very good value for money. It doesn't have a spectacular view of the sea, but then again it was close to the main town square.
We enjoyed our stay very much. A wonderful experience.
The property was ideally located halfway down the village with good privacy. The agency was very convenient being placed almost at the entrance to the tunnel to the station. Restaurants, walk-ways, the water and the Ferry were very close. The stairs were easily negotiated.

An enjoyable experience
Apart from the rather detached attitude of the person at reception we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Manarola.The appartment suited our needs, was clean and well placed. Transport to the surrounding attractions was excellent, even the mid week storm was a spectacle.A little staff training at charm school would have earned another star.
Our apartment was in a great spot, right in Manarola, up a few steps and overlooking the village. All amenities were great - good bathroom, great kitchen, lots of space for only a one bedroom apartment. Would recommend it to anyone. Arbaspaa were very helpful when arriving and when we wanted to book other trips through them. Would definitely recommend anyone to book through them and stay in Manarola. Thanks again!! :)
We stayed for 4 nights in appartamento Porticciolo and it was perfect. Elena at arbaspaa was lovely and walked us to the apartment to check in. Everything was clean, cool and compact.
One of the best things about the apartment was the location, although there isn't much of a sea view, this is more than made up for by the 5 minute proximity to the sea and all the beautiful swimming holes. This was especially good, as when visitng the 5 Terre you'll be climbing lots of hills and steps and it's great to be able to pop down for a morning swim without having to hike back home!
Manrola was our favourite of the 5 Terre, less busy, great food and lovely atmosphere and the apartment is definitely highly recommended.
ottima posizione, ma tanta, tanta, tanta umidità
il mini appartamento è situato a 50 metri dal porticciolo, in cima a una scalinata e proprio sotto il bastione a pianta circolare che si vede sulla destra in tutte le foto e le cartoline.
In particolare si trova alla fine di via del Baluardo.
come per tutte le gite a manarola si consiglia di portare solo l'indispensabile visto che il paese è tutto posto in salita.
L'alloggio è formato da 1 stanza molto grande con zona notte e zona cucina, a parte un piccolo bagno con doccia.
volendo si può pranzare in un piccolo tavolino posto sul pianerottolo davanti il portoncino, da qui si vede parzialmente il mare.
complessivamente sono presenti tutti i comfort per la vacanza, ad eccezione dell'aria condizionata. dall'alloggio si possono raggiungere i negozi i bar, i ristoranti sulla via principale o scendere sugli scogli per fare un tuffo o prendere il sole.
la stazione ferroviaria è a circa 200 metri, come pure l'ingresso della via dell'amore.
L'unico neo che per pemanenze prolungate può essere un serio problema è la notevole umidità presente dentro casa, infatti abbiamo trovato le lenzuola e i cuscini praticamente zuppi di umidità. il problema dell'umidità causa anche altri effetti collaterali, quali la non proprio simpatica presenza di formiche che è comune a tutto il paese.

Comfortable apartment, excellent location
My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful week long stay here in Manarola. The apt is comfortable and well equipped, and managed professionally by airbaspaa. Excellent location, near the main street, but isolated from street noise. Our favorite places to stay are those that feel part of the life of the town, but also offer privacy and quiet at night. This apartment met both of those expectations beautifully.
The balcony was a huge plus for us: nice view of the hillside, but also of the sea itself. We spent many relaxing hours reading, writing, sharing meals, coffee, and drinks on the balcony, staring out at Manarola. The apt furnishings are unfancy, but comfortable. The kitchen is very convenient (as are the 2 well stocked grocery stores in town). If you are travelling during the summer, it is worth noting that the apt stays blessedly cool, even on the hottest of summer days (esp in the evenings).
The only caveat I’d offer is that the bed is less than ideal. I’m sorry to say that we found it rather uncomfortable, and this might be an issue esp for those with back problems. Other than that, this made for a lovely retreat in Manarola (our favorite of the 5 Terre towns).

This apartment as advertised had a pleasant outlook, convenient
Service from letting agent on site was friendly, efficient and very helpful. The apartment was comfortable and perfectly adequate as advertised and an excellent location. The verandah provided a pleasant outlook of the hills behind as well as some sea views and would be great in summer when it is warmer.
Although not a criticism, we would have appreciated a microwave oven.
Overall a memorable experience and we would recommend it to our friends.
Ideal place to stay, close to all attractions and not too many steps to reach the appartment
Quiet location in Manarola
Stayed in this appartment for 3 nights. Location was good, very quiet and yet not far from the center of the village of Manarola. Appartment was good for 2 people - kitchen had all the amenities we needed; however, bed was not comfortable (2 beds pushed together) and no a/c. Little table and 2 chairs to sit outside on landing - no view of ocean unless you stand up but view of vineyards on the mountain and houses of all colors made up for it. Had to pay cash upon check-in (90 Euros per night) and no additional fee for cleaning. A few good restaurants and a small grocery store in the village - try Billy's for the Italian experience. All in all, the appartment was good as we were only there to sleep.
Our stay in Manarola was fabulous. The people from arbaspaa were responsive from the moment we made our reservation to the moment we arrived in Manarola and right through our stay. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, and well stocked with towels, utensils, plates, cups, etc. I would definitely use arbaspaa again for my next trip to the area. Everyone we dealt with-mostly Elisa and Heidi, were sweet, pleasant, and very helpful. Arbaspaa is a very professional and well run company and I highly recommend them.
A Special Little apartment in a Wonderful Village
It took us so long to decide where we should spend our four nights in the Cinque Terre that we were left with extremely limited options. Well, lucky for us it all worked out quite nicely--we loved our stay in the appartamento Porticciolo. The pictures represent the studio apartment perfectly. We never used the kitchen, but enjoyed early mornings and evenings on the small terrace. It was so nice to look at the hillside or enjoy the glimpse of the ocean (and hearing the loud splash as people jumped off the cliff in the marina). At night we left the window open so we could hear the crash of the waves--the only other sounds were the voices of an occasional passerby. Lovely, quiet spot. And anna from arbaspaa was great, even lending us her umbrella during our one day of rain as we waited out the train strike and found ourselves "stranded" in Manarola. Should also mention we ate at Billy's two of the nights--we even had the same table and our waitress remembered our orders from the previous night. Loved everything about our four-turned-five nights in Manarola!
In the right spot with all that one needs
On arriving we were tired & the agent wasn't obvious. So when you come out of the train tunnel you need to turn right up the hill. The agent is up a small stairs on your left above a shop. Look up to see the name on the balcony. This is one of the appartments with not too many steps luckily & these seemed like a lot when you are carrying luggage. The position is great as it is so close to everything shops restaurants, ferry , sea & walks. Wi-Fi also very close and free in a take away cafe just buy smoething small to eat. The accomadation was small but had everything. The view from the balcony could have been better but then we would have been up more steps. Can't have everything.
Cute studio with decent view
cute studio with a small patio good for breakfast or drinks. located about 5 min walk from train station, up the hill. Not ocean view, but pretty good view of town. Bed was made of what looked like temporary mattresses but wasn't too bad. very small shower. Fully functional kitchen.
Response from Arbaspaa - 07/07/2011
The apartment Porticciolo is down the hill walking from the train station.
Pleasant enjoyable stay
Good location - shops & restaurants as you get down the steps from the apartment. Only about 35 steps to climb, so don't overpack. Some water views from the corner of the balcony. Mattress & pillows a bit uncomfortable but you can get by. Cooking facilities available & a decent fridge. We did enjoy our stay but I think 3 nights is quite sufficient. Arbaspaa was very easy to deal with - very prompt emails & very helpful, can't say the same for the train timetables!!!around Cinque Terre. The day we arrived at Manarola, there was a train strike - there was no sign posted at La Spezia Centrale. The cab fare from La Spezia to Manarola was 40Euros.

2 adults & Infant Boy
1. Comfortable Bed
2. Large enough for 2 adults and a baby.
3. Couch and TV were great to have.
4. Kitchen was fully equipped and great to have for Baby.
5. Location is awesome, walking distance to the train station (10 minutes or less walk) and about 5 minutes or less to the water - very walkable.
6. Agency staff were awesome and professional - I hurt my back, and one of the girls that helped us check out carried our bag for us, while my wife was carrying our baby - thank you so much.
7. It was much cheaper than hotels - 80 Euros per night.
1. Hot water in the shower is limited to one person- i.e., we can not take long hot showers like we do in the us! But we managed to take short showers, and it was perfect (which is how it should be to conserve water and bee green).
Overall, I would stay there again.
Wonderful weekend in 5 Terre, nice apartament
Apartament Porticciolo is perfect for 2/3 people, comfortable, cheap and clean.
The apartament is in the city center of Manarola, a minute far from the sea (it can be seen from the little balcony in front of the door).
The arbaspaa staff is very kind, professional and efficient.
What can I say...excellent!!
Splendid View of the Ligurian Sea, Quaint and Quiet, Great Local
This quiet little vacation apartment is perfect for two people, but could work for three. The location is just a few stair cases up from the main pedestrian street and is close to everything in this tiny little town. The kitchen is fully stocked with the essentials and the shops on the street provide whatever you may need - food and drink to cook-in and great restaurants to eat out at. Be sure to soak in the sunset on the porch/balcony at least once and explore the trails through the hills, vineyards, and gardens. Overall, a great place to stay and will definitely consider staying with arbaspaa again!
Wonderful stay in Manarola
Wonderful stay in Manarola. Very comfortable and clean, well equipped kitchen, good bathroom. Only two minutes to the beach and main street We will come back for sure.

It was a wonderful time in manrola
We really enjoyed our stay in manarola. We were really pleased about arbaspaa and the appartement we rent. Everything was clean and nice. But the best was the location of our appartement. Only one or two minutes to the beach and to the main street of manarola. We would like to come again anytime!
Very nice little apartment
I was met by Martina who spoke very good English and helped me with my bags.
The place was absolutely spotless, the kitchen well equipped, with a nice big fridge and we loved the little table outside, where we ate breakfast and dinner with beautiful views over Manarola.
It's off the main drag in Manarola, so easy to get to shops and restaurants, it's a great place to stay if you want to be right in the centre of the Cinque Terre.

Not fancy - but exactly what I needed
The apartment was very well situated, near the port, and with nice view. The main advantage was that the apartment was shaded all day long, so it was cool during the very hot season we we in, and could escape the heat of the day and didn't need air-conditioning (that the apartment doesn't have)
On the other hand, we were staying for a long period and were surprised it was not serviced even once. It is a closed underground place so there was a slight smell of dampness.

Fabulous:) Staff member greeted us at our arrival and all was as promised.
The appartment was clean and well ventilated the bed was very confortable the bath and shower spotless View on the sea and mountain. Made memorable suppers with produce from the village:) Not too many steps to get to our appartment.
Evening walks in the gardens just in front in the mountain with view on the sea:) We miss it already:)
Manarola is the best kept village of the Cinque Terre in our opinion.
Big Thanks to the staff of arbaspaa for their warm welcome and help:)
Beautiful Holiday to remember forever:)

Ideal for our stay in Manarola
The apartment was just right for what we needed - very comfortable, excellent location, and lovely little balcony. The only thing that was missing was soap; but I think that was probably just a one-off. Other than that, the apartment was very well equipped.

comfortable, suggestive, in good position with a nice landlady
A Phenomenal 20th Anniversary
What a trip. The apartment was perfect. Clean, spacious and exactly what we
needed. I almost wished we could have done more with it because the kitchen
was complete with all trimmings. The owner, who settled us in on a Sunday
after delays getting there, was a sweetheart.
The views are breathtaking. We almost ended up in Corneglia. So glad that
didn't happen. Manarola is my favorite home base of all the towns.
Arbaspaa is the way to go when doing Cinque Terre. They were completely
accommodating, helping us make all the connections and providing great leads
on all that there is to do. I will contact them again if we return to this gem of a
region. Thanks Arbaspaa and thanks Anna Maria. We will never forget you!
A lovely holiday
We had such a gorgeous holiday here. The Cinque Terre is a beautiful place and Manarola the perfect base from which to explore it.
This ccommodation was exactly what we needed - reaonably priced, well-equipped and comfortable. There is no sea view, but it offers a gorgeous view of the rolling hills above Manarola.
Wilton, Connecticut, USA
Cinque Terre is unique; Manarola is the jewel. We husband and wife) had a blast there, met so many neat folks, fine food, some great music and dancing in the streets. Manarola is compact, and it's easy to get to the other towns. The water is so nice, but beware of the rocky beaches. The apartment is pretty basic--no refinements--but it has all you need and the location could not be better. Price is reasonable, people helpful. Go, go, go.
