"Find another place to stay" L'Eremo sul Mare Tip by Takemehome

L'Eremo sul Mare, Vernazza: 133 reviews and 0 photos

I can't give this B&B the rave review that everyone else has posted. For $250 euro a night, we slept in a tiny room that barely had room for a full time bed and a roll away. We were in the attic and had to bend over to walk anywhere on the floor and I'm 5'1. The wasn't much water pressure for the shower or toilet and weren't provided toilet paper. Breakfast wasn't the delightful message either. Melba toast in plastic and warm yogurt doesn't a breakfast make, which we paid an additona $20 a night to have. As for this climb, please do not make the mistake we did, here's the real truth. It is 571 steps, straight up with switchbacks. the stairs are made with varying materials (mud, stone, cement, marble) and can be very slippery. There are very few handlerails and the stair sizes vary as well. Often the view is nice, if you no mind looking straight down the cliff and aren't worried about falling off. Don't walk it in the rain or at dark, there was a landslide while we were there and people were hurt. Do yourself a favor and stay at in town.

Unique Qualities: No hot water or toilet paper. Warm yogurt and very strong coffee.
