The “Taverna” Cave

Below the ground floor

This part of the house will be only opened on request for special events, such as wine tasting, birthdays, special dinners. Please, fell free to ask for packages and quotation.


Franco Tanca, a true son of Monterosso, always dreamed of being able to see the Cinque Terre from his bedroom window. In 1969 his dream came true. This is the reason why he built this villa right over the main square and the beach of Monterosso. And also the reason why the linear architecture of the house is altered in correspondence of his own bedroom. That room had to face the sea, so that any morning he could wake up admiring the beloved Mediterranean waters from his own bed. The stars would have always brightened his nights in a lovely lullaby. And in stormy days the waters would have blessed his walls.

This is what today Cinque Terre Riviera Luxury Collection guests can experience on renting Villa Tanca, the very same magic that will permeate their stay in Monterosso.

Why Choosing It

A stone throw away form the sea, Villa Tanca will guarantee you a quick access to the beach. Have you pictured yourself falling asleep to the sound of the waves slowly rolling on the sandy shores and enjoying the sunset over the gulf from your own private terrance while sipping on some local wine? This is the place for you. Private events such as celebrations, dinner parties and wine tastings can be arranged upon request in the Villa’s exclusive grotto carved into the mountain and resembling an old pirate lair (the grotto will remain closed during regular rental of the villa). The Villa can be accessed easily from the nearest parking area as well as from the train station, both no more than a 5 minutes away.

Good to Know

Villa Tanca is a marvellous location, in shaded and cool area, but just steps from the heart of the village. All stores and restaurants are at hand. The beach is right below and the train station is at walking distance.

There’s no air conditioning at Villa Tanca, but the villa, immersed in the luxuriant vegetation of Monterosso Cappuccini hill, does not need any forced air system to keep it cool. The owners prefer saving the environment and use traditional and Nature saving ways to protect the Natural Park of the Cinque Terre.

Guest Review

    Hi Miriana

    Just a quick word to say thank you for

    “Our recent stay in Monterosso at Villa Tanca was a fabulous experience. The villa is extremely comfortable for 2 families with 2 wings of accommodation and 4 bathrooms. On arrival we were greeted by Cinque Terre local and breakfast extraordinaire Marianna who showed us around the villa. There was a delightful basket of goodies presented to us and we very much enjoyed the wine and local produce. The villa has outstanding views of Monterosso and has the most beautiful outdoor living spaces. Just beware the villa is only accessible by foot up some fairly steep steps which is fine if you are walking but a little tricky with heavy suitcases. I believe a porter can be arranged however we managed fine without one. Without a doubt I highly recommend the beautiful Villa Tanca and certainly hope to return in the future. ”
