La Lampara Apartment

Apartment   |    Manarola


Introducing this property

La Lampara is an exclusive Manarola sea view holiday apartment in a typical tower house. This charming property lies in the most prominent and scenic part of the village of Manarola.

The building is in one of the most ancient residential areas of all the Cinque Terre, dates back to XI century and has 4 floors, at exclusive use of two apartments, charming La Lampara (developing on 2 upper floors) and Il Baluardo (on the 2 lower floors).

This charming location is holiday destination of famous fashion designers, writers and painters who found here the ideal place for getting inspiration and energy for their precious art.

Essentiality and simplicity are keywords of La Lampara. We recommend it as the ideal solution for an easy way rental and no-frills holiday at sea, away from the daily burden.

The apartment

Entering the apartment, on ground floor (second of the tower house), we find a small entrance hall, 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom (that can be turned into a double), both with great sea-view and a bathroom with shower and washing machine.

Through a curious winding staircase we reach up a large open space with sitting/dining room and kitchen corner.
Kitchen has been restored in 2015 and it has gas stove, refrigerator and microwave oven. There’s no dishwasher.
In sitting room area two couches (one can be used as additional single sofa bed).
Central heating with wall splits in each bedroom and sitting room. Splits also work as wall fans during the hot season.

La Lampara has a fantastic wide balcony which opens from the sitting room like a vessel deck. On the balcony table and chairs for enchanting dinners under a starry sky and amusing wine tastings.

Why choosing it

La Lampara sea view holiday apartment has a fantastic location. It is in the most prominent part of the village, it has total sea-view, but it is also walking distance to the lively restaurants, pubs and stores of the village.

 La Lampara is one of the most amazing properties in the area, where romance is main theme and sunsets will always warm your heart and memories.

Choose is for its amazing terrace. La Lampara sunsets will always be in your heart!

Good to know

La Via dell’Amore, the world famous scenic path that leads to Riomaggiore departs approx. 500 meters far from La Lampara. Now, due to restoration, is only partially open for one third of its total length. Access is from Manarola train station, entrance to the left of the National Park office.

La Lampara lies in a historical medieval building right over the cliff.  In spring time, mostly one week in Ma, jelly fish land on the cliff below, releasing a peculiar smell that can be felt sometimes from the apartment as from all other apartments on the sea. It is a natural phenomenon limited just to a few days during the year. We inform about this since a few years ago a customer (just one actually) lamented this problem.

Being uphill, as most of the properties in Manarola, requires that guests be in good shape and without walking difficulties.

Porterage both from the train station or from the car parking is available on request and at extra charge.

Guest Review

    “Very Romantic & Relaxing”

    We enjoyed our stay at La Lampara very much. There was a lot of climbing, but we both needed the exercise. At the end of each day, we’d share a bottle of Cinque Terre wine on the balcony and watch the sun set slowly into the sea. On more than one evening–particularly as the wine and lemoncino kicked in–we’d dance under a sea of stars. At night, we’d open the windows to our bedroom and let the sea breeze and the sound of the waves against the rocks below lull us to sleep. The amenities were fine and comfortable. The washer was a nice addition and got plenty of use from us. Beautiful locale and friendly hospitality from the local residents.

    This two floor apartment was wonderful and clean! It had a beautiful view from both bedrooms. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck each morning while enjoying the view and also going to bed listening to the ocean waves. I would definitely recommend it if you are trying to stay at a quiet place with a beautiful view

    This property is fantastic, it really gives you a sense of staying in the village on Manarola but set away from the main street so noise isn’t an issue. It is expensive but the VIEW is magic and the sunset is great! The village is a 5 minute walk away but the stairs and ramps are steep just to warn you.

    Really enjoyed our stay here! The property is very clean and comfortable, and the porch overlooking the ocean is definitely the highlight. We spent every evening out there watching the sunset.

    Although the restaurants in Manarola are great, we appreciated have a kitchen to fix evening snacks and breakfasts every day. The bedrooms are a standard size for the area, and the bathroom has plenty of room for two people to get ready in the morning.

    Alina met us at the property when we arrived, and was really helpful in showing us the apartment, as well as talking about the area. It was great seeing a friendly face after a long train ride. The apartment is a fairly easy walk from the train station, although there are plenty of stairs involved, so large suitcases might have been a problem. We enjoyed the walk each day through the narrow streets and paths, and the area around the apartment is a lot of fun to explore.

    We would definitely recommend La Lampara, and if we return to Manarola we’ll certainly try to stay there again.

    “The views were worth a million dollars. The sunrise and sunsets were enthralling. The staff were very responsive and friendly. The place is a bit small but the expansive views compensated for that”

    Il feedback che ha scritto per te Mustafa:
    “The Alina was very responsive and was there to receive us and checked with us frequently if everything was ok”

    OVE LOVE LOVE the location and the quiet privacy the residence provided. Sitting out on the balcony watching the sunset and listening to the waves at night made this place feel special. The pricetag is a little high, as other reviewers stated, but all around good experience. The views were spectacular and it was only a short walk into town. Great location. Great for two couples to share
