The property can be reached from the village via a path which leads directly to a gate that opens onto a staircase. From there one reaches the first floor and then the ground floor and the garden where there are olive trees, mandarins, lemons and other fruit trees. The sea and the train station can be both reached within a 5-minute walk. The 74 square meter building is the result of the renovation of an old farmhouse in 2000. The original architectural features have been preserved such as stone walls, vaults and slate roof. Developed on two levels, the cottage consists of two completely independent apartments, one measures about 36 sq m on the ground floor and the other about 38 sq m on the first floor. The interiors are composed as follows: The ground floor apartment consists in a double entrance from the garden where there is a splendid pergola. In the living area there is space for a sofa bed and a dining table. There is also a kitchen, a bathroom and a storage room. The first floor apartment accesses onto the living room with a double bed, kitchen and bathroom. Both apartments are provided with a gas system, electric cookers for the kitchen and LPG heating with cylinders. There is the possibility of connecting to mainline gas thanks to the recent construction of the system near the property. On the first floor there is also a fully functional fireplace. The original slate has been maintained on the roof and has been insulated ensuring excellent thermal efficiency. The land of 600 square meters with crags is cultivated with plants typical of the Mediterranean scrub such as lemon, orange, fig and persimmon as well as olive trees and aromatic plants. There is also a garden at the front of the property with a beautiful covered pergola offering a cool environment during the sunny days as well as the fantastic panorama. There is a parking lot a few meters from the cottage. Perched on a rocky promontory of 100 meters in a valley planted with vineyards, Corniglia is the central town of the Cinque Terre.
