After some searching (the fourth search period, in fact) for accommodation etc in Corniglia I have found your webpage and have found it to be excellent. We visited this area in 2003 (from Ballarat Australia) and stayed in a great place in Corniglia overlooking the water. I agree with everything your notes say about the place – we had a great time and it was wonderful to come ‘home’ each night to the quiet of Corniglia and then enjoy a fantastic meal at the restaurant near the top of the steps from the station.
So, apart from taking a bit of time to find your Cinque Terre webpage – I don’t know why this was – it has been a happy find. In particular, your reference
list of accommodation, restaurants, etc are most helpful.
