Location wise it's very good if you have a car. It's set in the background of the rustic village of al foca. Without a car it would be a mission to get here. The rooms are very basic. I would've liked it to be a bit more functional. A TV wouldn't have gone amiss. The toilets were adequate but lacked... More

We based ourselves at Locanda del Papa during our 3 day visit to Cinque Terre. We mainly chose it because we did not want to stay in the middle of on of the busy villages and we wanted a place where our dog could get out for walks leash free, it served these purposes beautifully. The hosts, David and Roberta,... More

What an unforgettable start to our holiday. We were again blessed with amazing hosts in this idyllic setting. Our second time visiting here and again a perfect base to visit Le Cinque Terre, nearby beaches and just laze around and play with the cats and other animals on the farm. David was so warm, helpful and welcoming, unlike any other... More

An agriturismo hotel at a beautiful location, with gorgeous views. A bit tricky to find, and drive to (a lot of winding and narrow roads) and you are reliant on having a car for outings, but that is as expected when staying at an agriturismo, I think. Nice, traditional house with very friendly and service-minded hosts. Serves a good breakfast... More

Wonderful hosts. David is very helpful. The place, wow! We cannot find words to describe it. We stayed 2 nights. We'll go there again and stay longer. The breakfast, the view, the room (400 years old BTW), the restaurants near by, and the location...This place is the best in the region. If you want to go Cinque Terre and have... More

Owners couldn't do more to make us feel welcome. Breakfast is fabulous with homemade jams, ham, cheese etc. The location is calm and beautiful away from the madding crowds. Restaurants within easy walking distance. Lots of information about the area was freely given including a walk right from the house. La Spezia is close and from there the train service... More

From the first point of contact with David and Roberta when we happened on their website, we were comfortable with them...from their answers to our queries, their willingness to help with routes and places of interest as we were coming to Cinque Terre from further south in Tuscany! On arrival, we found a husband and wife team who were warm,... More

We happened upon Locanda del Papa and fortunately, they had a beautiful, rustic room for one night. David and Roberta, the hosts were very helpful, drawing us maps and directing us to excellent and interesting places to eat. I wish we could have stayed here longer!! I highly recommend it!

With SO many choices in the vicinity it was difficult to choose one. We did end up relying upon the tripadvisor ratings and we were not disappointed. I can only confirm what others have said in their earlier positive reviews. Can I add any negatives. . . ? I guess the stay was too short, but we could not help... More

Don't even know where to start! First of all, David and Roberta is amazing owners! They have this warm and authentic feeling about them. They do this because they love it, not to keep a incoming business. David will tell you all about his production of olives, and Italian food in general. I can't stop to praise David as a... More
