About the location
Monterosso is the biggest of the five Cinque Terre villages. It’s split into two halves – the west side is more modern, while the eastern end has a traditional feel, with narrow lanes and candy-coloured houses. There’s a handful of interesting ancient watchtowers to look out for, plus a beautiful church with a striped marble façade.

Monterosso has a couple of coarse-sand beaches, the biggest of which is in the new part of town. They’re the only ‘proper’ beaches in the Cinque Terre, so they’re well set up with loungers and parasols. Away from the beach, you’ve got the remaining four villages (Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore) to explore. You can get the train or boat between them, but for spectacular scenery, there’s nothing better than taking to the hills and hiking your way along the coast. 
Transfer Time
The hotel is 1 hour 15 minutes from Genoa airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
