Cinque Terre

Villa Valentina
@ashleybartner
Lovely and spacious apartments perfect for a family or to just have a bit more room. Conveniently located just outside the city centre, a 5 minute bike ride means there is a garden, chickens and welcome shade in the heat of summer on the Mediterranean. The host is kind and gracious American expat that married a local fisherman many years ago, married and raised their children here. Paula makes amazing homemade muffins at breakfast (my favorite were the Blueberry!) & full of local insight & suggestion not to miss.
