Discover the ancient villages of the Cinque Terre from your holiday home

The Cinque Terre consists of a narrow strip of land between the Mediterranean Sea and the crest line separating it from the Val di Vara and the Gulf of La Spezia. Comprising five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. A place of great beauty, because it is located inside the Parco Nazionale delle Cinque, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1997. The Cinque Terre is part of the Italian Riviera

If you rent a holiday home in Cinque Terre, you can enjoy the beaches, coves and cliffs as well as five of the most beautiful cities in the Italian region. Five ancient fishing villages that rise from the rock. The first of them, Monterosso is the northernmost one and you will be able to admire the reefs and beaches characterized by crystal clear water. You will not be able to miss to visit the statue Il Gigante, representing the god Neptune; the Aurora tower which was built to prevent barbarian attacks; the historical centre where you can get lost in its streets and of course, relax on its beautiful beaches.


In Corniglia, you will find the most beautiful coves of Cinque Terre. Unlike the four other villages, this one has no direct access to the sea since it is on a capcompletely surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Its beaches, located at the foot of the colony, are unique in the region because even if they are made of rock, they have the most turquoise waters of Cinque Terre.


Vernazza is a village that has retained the traditional fishing style with its colourful houses. Of course, you will have to visit the church of Sainte-Marguerite d’ Antioche built in 1318 in a purely Gothic style; the Château des Doria and the Belforte, an impressive bastion that served as a protection against numerous attacks and whose highest part forms the tower of Belforte; the sanctuary of Notre-Dame de Reggio and of course, do not forget to eat an ice cream on the main square.


The most beautiful of all the villages is undoubtedly Manarola, whose houses seem to be stacked on the rock. The wide variety of facades gives the village a lively character and makes it an ideal place to visit. In addition to its magnificent architecture, this village is also famous for its excellent restaurants where you can taste the local cuisine. Another attraction is the natural swimming pools where you can take a bath.


Finally, let’s introduce Riomaggiore. This is the most picturesque and quiet of the five villages. You will not be able to miss the church of San Juan Bautista which is located at the top of Riamoggiore; the castle where cultural and playful activities take place or the tunnel to walk from the railway station to the village. You will undoubtedly have to visit the village, explore the streets and walk to the pier for a breathtaking view.
