We loved our stay at Blackberry Cottage so much. Following Andrea driving up the hill you already could sense that this is a special place and then this amazing view and the beautiful garden with its smell of rosemary. We loved relaxing on the terrace but also took walks from Manarola to Cormiglia, such a scenic trail and our dog loved climbing up the hill. The other walk was from Monterosso to Vernazza. We easily could access the Cinque Terre towns from the cottage, they are so beautiful. For dinner we went to Portovenere or to The Ville Relais, a recommendation from one of the cards of the Pinnwall in the house, a great idea. In the house the owners and guests have left many recommendations for trips and restaurants. For us holidays in Bluebbery Cottage was a little dream and we hope to come back. This is no standard place and you can feel that the owners put their heart into keeping this place in good shape and wanting that guests feel at home. Thank you Alberto and Baba for making your guests feel like coming to stay with friends and for all our friendliness.

“Fanstastic views and lovely terraces, small living space indoors”

We decided to go to Cinque Terre for our Easter break (me, hubby, 11 and 1 year old + another family of 4). I had spoken on the phone with the owner prior to our arrival (he called me at his expense) and we had a lovely chat about the house, what to expect and where to go+what to do in the area (tips on supermarkets, restaurants etc). He was really obliging and nice. Unfortunately it had been raining in the region for the past 3-4 weeks so the weather report wasn't looking good, and we arrived on the Thursday evening under torrential rain. Aside from a few things that went wrong, the house is lovely. It has enough rooms to host two families of four quite comfortably, the kids loved their bunk bed rooms, we enjoyed our stay in ours. However, the living space is rather small if you are forced to stay indoors for dinners due to rain or cold, so I wouldn't recommend renting this place out before it gets sufficiently hot for you to enjoy the wonderful terraces, with a wicked view of the port. Another downside is that there is only one bathtub/shower so eight people really need to take turns in the mornings and evening (if you're coming back from a day outdoors under very heavy rain!). Aside from these two drawbacks, I would recommend the place. The owner is a really nice guy and you can be sure that you will be treated with respect and cordiality that one expects when in Italy (but is often let down otherwise).

“Quaint place with incredible views from its lofty position”

We were a party of 5 adults and three small children and it was a bit of a test to sort access to the one bathroom for showers. But that small inconvenience was well worth it because Blackberry Cottage is a beautifully positioned in the hills overlooking the bays of La Spezia across to Lerici. It also gave us quick access to the Cinque Terre and its multiple delights. We had all meals, every day, in the outside garden areas which are superbly attended by Andrea - thank you for that!
