Good to Know

1.Under Milk Wood is only accessible on foot and you need to walk about 8-10 min from the car park.

There are three different ways:

  • a. from the top, by about 5 min walk down the path with old stair steps, which then leads to the cemetery (bus stop) of Riomaggiore (can be taken also upstairs from the graveyard to the top)
  • b. more easy, you park your car on the federal road leading to Riomaggiore (or get the bus to the near bus stop) and reach the house via a very simple path through the wine-cultivated land and parallel to the road in max 10 min walk to the house. For this solution there are only few steps to take.
  • c. if you are traveling without a car you can reach Riomaggiore or by boat or train or bus and then walk to the house (from the cemetery via the stone path upstairs), or take the small bus from the village and get over or under the house and then take the path to the house (easier with luggage).

2. At this rental apartment try to respect Nature and environment, we cultivate our grapes with natural methods and produce our hot water with a Thermo Solar System and the heating with Biomass. Air-conditioning is not provided in respect with eco rules, but the place is good ventilated by the exposure over the sea. Its large stone walls keep the house fresh also in summer.

3. Wi-Fi, Satellite TV available.


 The name, Under Milk Wood, takes inspiration from the famous Dylan Thomas‘s radio drama (1954) commissioned by the BBC and later adapted for the stage. In the play an omniscient narrator invites the audience to listen to the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of the fictional small Welsh fishing village Llareggub (“bugger all” backwards). The owner of Under Milk Wood found a similarity of images and feeling in staying at this lovely cottage in Riomaggiore and that made the name history!
