The Cinque Terre is such a seller's market that there's little incentive for hoteliers to offer much more than four walls, a bed, and a working shower—which is why La Torretta is such a welcome find. At the top end of Manarola, not far from the church, the locanda has 15 rooms, from singles to two-room suites, on different levels of a warrenlike Pompeii red townhouse. The decor is eclectic in a neo-Baroque sort of way, with striped fabrics and plaster busts of classical gods and heroes: not your usual Cinque Terre granny flat, in other words, but a more subdued and self-taught version of the Versace aesthetic. Some rooms have terraces, and suites feature Jacuzzis; satellite TV and air conditioning are standard. Breakfast—served on a large terrace with views over the rooftops—includes freshly squeezed fruit juice and a selection of bite-size pastries. There's also a small splash pool on a solarium terrace on a lower level.
