Stairs and more stairs in Corneglia
The apartment was very well located immediately beside the main square where the bus will drop you off from the train station. There are stairs to get into the apartment and also there is a very tight spiral staircase to reach the upstairs bedrooms. So... if mobility is an issue or you travel with large luggage this might not be a good fit. I would suggest though that this applies to all of the accommodation in Corneglia.
The apartment was very comfortable and has a lovely balcony with a view. The beds were also very comfortable. We were unable to get the shower to work so used the bath instead but have notified the property manager so hopefully that has been resolved.
It is a short shuttle ride up and down the hill and the shuttle is free if you have a Cinque Terra card. Corneglia essentially has no nightlife but does have a few good restaurants. If you are looking for a peaceful place to spend your evenings after long days of trekking or exploring it is a lovely choice
Quaint, less people and absolutely lovely
Corniglia is the smallest of the five towns but has great things come in small packages. At the end of the day, only the fortunate will understand how perfect it is. The town is at the top of 333 steps from the train station. There is a bus that takes you exactly to the main piazza which is where the property is situated. Or you can climb the stairs, which is what we did. You can hike to Vernazza from here and it is beautiful. There are a couple of little grocers and restaurants right there in the piazza. Grab a bottle of wine, some amazing breads, local cheese and salami and you have yourself a meal. Loved this place!
We (two couples) picked Corniglia hoping what we read about this little village being less visited was correct. We made the right choice. This is such a unique village, loved the restaurants, location and the apartment. We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. If I had to pick something to be sure people are aware of is you do have to go thru one bedroom to get to the other. Not a big deal, but good info to know.
We would absolutely stay here again if we find ourselves in Italy again!
We absolutely loved this village and the apartment was cute and well stocked with kitchen items and plenty of towels! WiFi very weak/spotty, ac in upper back bedroom isn’t very cold and could use a few better pillows. Otherwise loved it all!
Clean spacious apartment with great location and view
We loved this apartment in Corniglia, it could not have been more central, right next to the bus stop from the train station at the bottom of the hill and right in the town square where the restaurants and mini-markets were located. The apartment was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated with coastal theme, spacious and comfortable with great view. The only drawback was that you can't stand up in the shower which was part of the bath with a low ceiling over it.
Wonderful house in Corniglia's center.
An excellent, updated property with beautiful views from a
third floor apartment in a quiet village. Great communication with the property manager. Any issues and there is a prompt response.
With that said, please note that there are 35 steps from the street to the door of this apartment. Once in the apartment, there is also a very tight, spiral staircase going up to the sleeping area and main bathroom. If you have limited mobility, this is not the property for you.
If you are traveling by car, there is very limited permit parking in the town for visitors. It was advised that we park at the La Spezia Train Station (40 euros/day prorated) and take the train to Corniglia, then catch the bus from the Corniglia train station to take you up to the town. The last bus from the train station leaves at 7 p.m. If you miss it, it's a 377-steps walk up to the town. Regarding the train, you must have your ticket validated after purchase. If not validated, you'll face a steep fine if asked to produce your ticket once on the train.
If you'd like to visit some of the other towns in Cinque Terre, you can take the train which runs till midnight. Or, there are shuttle busses that you can take as well. The last shuttle back to Corniglia is around 9 p.m. Bonus, the bus stop is at the bottom of the stairs to your apartment.
You will not be disappointed with your stay in Corniglia. It's the smallest of the five towns. Once all the day-trip visitors are gone, it's a quiet, peaceful town with the locals gathering in the square to talk. Corniglia has plenty of restaurants open in the evening as well as a couple of gelato shops that stay open later as well.
If you like to cook in, there are two markets across the town square from your apartment. There is also an organic market further up the main tourist walk way. There is also a small pharmacy that sells distilled water for you sleep apnea folks.
We loved our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer. You will not be disappointed.
The Apartment Stella Marina is located in Corniglia, one of the five beautiful sea villages clung onto the rocks on Riviera di Levante, in Liguria, called 'Cinque Terre', simpy 'The five Towns'. Unesco World Heritage since 1997, Cinque Terre means romantic little bays, small beaches, caves, precipitous cliffs, terraced ridges, corals, anchovies, thousands of kilometres of dry walls built to create terraces for the cultivation of grapevines, it means whales and dolphins in the Whales’ Sanctuary, a wide net of footpaths from Riomaggiore to Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza to Monterosso, Via dell’Amore and on the back of the Cinque Terre.
The territory of Cinque Terre includes the coastal area from Punta Mesco, by Levanto, to Punta Montenero, close to Portovenere and the famous Palmaria Island, about ten kilometres east from La Spezia.
