Renting on a nightly basis, this yellow house perched high on a hill in Manarola offers stupendous views of the blue Mediterranean sea.  The freshly painted green window shutters diffuse the light and the sound of the waves lapping to shore rock you to sleep.

Casa Gialla has four guest bedrooms, with either queen or double bed, and each has its own private bathroom with shower. The bedrooms each have a secured entrance and are rented separately on a three night minimum.
 
The Casa Gialla owner also offers the Ondina studio apartment for two guests located just a few doors down from Casa Gialla.

The four story house is bright and pleasant and has been recently restored in a crisp and tasteful manner by the current owners who are architects.   Much attention and respect has been given to the integrity of the building origins and the environment. Casa Gialla develops over three levels and is built right into the rocky cliff like most of the residences of these remarkable fishing villages.


The evening view from the terrace
 
Casa Gialla is characterized by remarkable sea views over the Cinque Terre National Park coastline and the Manarola harbor.  This area of Manarola and its buildings formed the most important part of a local medieval castle that was built in the 10th century and destroyed by battleships fleets from Genoa in the fifteenth century.  Over the centuries this point was continually raided by pirates as well.
 
With the destruction of the castle in the 1400's, the main building remained in ruins with little standing other than the thick medieval stone walls and arches on the ground floor.  A local family bought and restored it as their living quarters in 1955.  Careful work has been done in order to bring Casa Gialla back to its original four floor tower-house size.  Because of its enviable perched position, there are a fair amount of stairs to reach the property.  The owners, Debora (who speaks excellent English) and Oriana are very accommodating.
 
 
Please note that due to the nature of the stairs at Casa Gialla, children under eight are not permitted.
 
By bedroom per night (three night minimum requested):

There are four guest bedrooms (2 on the ground floor and 2 on the first floor) with private bathrooms with shower.  They can be rented separately or together, depending on the need.  In addition to the private bathroom, each has a queen or double bed with a comfortable down comforter.  Other features include acoustic insulation, satellite TV, small refrigerator, and hair dryer.
 
Guests have access to the top floor where there is a bright airy lounge/sitting room with WIFI that opens onto the furnished panoramic terrace. Both the lounge and terrace are shared by all guests.  The views are superb and this is a special place for relaxing and getting lost in the beautiful vista.
 
Price 2017 135/night per room (1-2 guests) with three night minimum

Please inquire about lower rates for longer rentals
 

 
Manarola, being one of the more sleepy villages of the Cinque Terre, is a peaceful and quiet haven after a busy day of sightseeing.  There are restaurants, shops and cafés in the village and the harbor is particularly picturesque and inviting.
 
Manarola is the second southernmost village of the Cinque Terre and hiking trails offering spectacular views link all of the five Cinque Terre villages.

The easiest walkway will be between Riomaggiore, the first village, and Manarola.  This famous trail is called Via dell'Amore and makes this beautiful area accessible to everyone on foot.  The path is also handicap accessible.
 
Manarola is connected to Corniglia, the next village up, also by a footpath.  All of the Cinque Terre towns and other destinations along the Ligurian Coast are accessible by frequent boat and train service.   A car is the least desirable mode of transportation and we found this out the hard way.  The winding mountainous roads take forever to navigate, reminding us of the fact that boats, trains and walking are the most natural way to enjoy this remarkable region.
