Extraordinary location

Posted Sep 30, 2017 on Hotels
This was the most amazing stay of our vacation. The location is like a place out of a fairytale! Our host Francesca was fantastic, even rescuing us when our car was towed away. She gave great information to guide our stay and plan a trip to Cinques Terre. I can't say enough about Corte Paganini. A must stay!

Great old building in the mountain

Pros: See above.

The property is in a 1400-year old small village of made of stone houses in the mountain above Chinque Terre. We felt really great there. The owner was very friendly.

It's a lovely place on the mountain. Our room was neat and clean. Kitchen was good too. The manager was very kind and helpful. She provided us with pick-ups from the train station and gave us very helpful information about where to go with lots of maps and pictures. You can feel her passion and genuine love for the place. I loved staying this place.

Pros: Loved the rustic accommodation and the views!
Location: The location is quite remote and the road is very narrow and winding. You must have a car to stay here. It is well worth the drive up the mountain!
This rustic converted barn was the perfect choice for our holiday. Our host Francesca was lovely! A bottle of local wine was waiting for us when we arrived. The views were spectacular and we loved our little balcony and the courtyard where we enjoyed a glass of wine each evening. The wifi only works in the courtyard, but who cares whe you are on holiday! Put your electronics away and enjoy life!!!

Not a hotel. This is an renovated apartment.

Posted May 23, 2016
Pros: The mountains, the views, the solitude.
Cons: Wifi, parking, lighting.
Location: Some of our neighbors enjoyed the hiking opportunities. Easy to take the ferry from La Spezia to the Cinque Terra.
This apartment high in the mountains in Caste,Italy was unique. Pros: scenery, character, solitude, and the host, Francesca ..... Cons: wifi ( had to sit by an open window to get decent reception ) , parking (limited), proximity to anything ( can also be a plus), We found the indoor lighting to be very dim. The radiator heat had been turned off and sometimes the apt. felt damp and cold; a few minutes of heat could have improved the comfort level greatly. We enjoyed our stay so much that we could overlook any of these shortcomings.

Charming position and view

Posted Oct 29, 2015 on Hotels
Though the road and parking were both intimidating, this rustic and charming position was not too far from la spezia. The villas are very basic and a bit cold in October with heating central and weak, and turned on at request. We were wlcomed warmly and Carlo and Francesca were very helpful. They introduced us to the nearby estuarine which is in e middl of nowhere but has splendid dishes. We found the bed hard and the pillows too lean. Lighting inside is a bit dim. There is TV noise from nearby at night until quite late. The view from the courtyard is lovely though. Probably a 2.5-3 star accomodation.

Nice...but buyer beware!

Posted Jul 27, 2015 on Hotels
This was a really cool place, though not too easy to get to unless you have a car! You should be aware that there is no air conditioning and no fans, so if you're staying in this hotel in the heat of the summer (we were there in late July 2015)- you will be uncomfortable. Also, they have small concerts in the courtyard on some nights, so if you want peace and quiet after traveling, check the web site before booking to be sure this isn't happening on your nights. We went through a 2 hour sound check, a hour plus reading from a novel in Italian, which we didn't understand, and then another hour of the songs that we listened do during the aforementioned soundcheck - during this time, we had to be quiet - no TV or music or anything or we would've interrupted this "show." They finished up at nearly midnight, and it wasn't a great night's sleep to have to leave the next morning. Francesca is very ni9ce, but she doesn't speak English very well, so it was hard to communicate. You also have to hang out the window to get internet - especially if there's a concert in the common area that you can't interrupt!! Great view though - just VERY HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
