Manuel's Guest House. B&B in Cinque Terre, Monterosso, Italy
Manuel Grasso is an artist that lives and works in Monterosso,
His family home, a three store villa overlooking the historic side of Monterosso is now a guesthouse run by his nephew Lorenzo.
this place has been a heaven for families, backpackers and adventurous visitors that want to avoid the usual touristy spots of the Cinque Terre.
The rooms are simple and clean with new and comfortable mattresses, all with private bath and air-con, almost all the rooms have sea view.
The guesthouse is located at the top of 130 stairs and at one of the highest points in Monterosso, but is still only a 5-7 minute walk to the beach and to the famous Cinque Terre hiking trails. Its height above other buildings grants it incredible views of the ocean, the town, and the mountains. There is a large terrace where breakfast is held that shares these views; the terrace is great for relaxing and socializing with other guests.
The setting is a wonderful place for tourists because of its proximity to town and the beach yet it's removal from the crowds.
