We stayed here for 3 nights. The plan was to visit the Cinque Terre area and Porto Venere national park. Our room was huge-had a large bed, sitting room, kitchen and 2 private terraces. It has a secluded pool and the property itself is very large. The host-a very nice older gentleman -showed us around his amazing fruit and vegetable gardens and offered us our choice of anything there we wanted to pick!! He also gave us good recommendations for seeing the coastal areas. Although you can see the sea in the distance it is not especially easy to get there by car-going through La Spezia, .but the surroundings and extremely kind host were wonderful.
We spent 10 wonderful days in Monteverde. Beautifully situated property. The apartment (Ginestra) is fully equipped and high quality. We felt welcome, especially the "briefing" with interesting tips for the region.

We had a wonderful time at Apartment Melograno. The complex and holiday apartments are even more beautiful than on the pictures, everything is wonderfully maintained and you feel very welcome as a guest. The welcome of new guests & tips for excursions in the surroundings or restaurants is also a highlight & not self-evident. In addition, the wine of the estate is also particularly tasty. We had a really wonderful time & will surely come back.
