My name is Sandro and I’m the owner and manager of the apartment "Blue Ocean”, a typical tower-house that has belonged to my family for generations, and that today is available for guests wishing to live an authentic experience at inque Terre
“Blue Ocean" is a neat and elegant apartment, completely renovated, with modern and refined interiors. It is in the picturesque town of Manarola, a few steps from the small port, the seaside, the main shops and the best restaurants. The apartment features an old press (used for years to process grape marc) and a painting by artist Silvio Benedetto portraying my uncle Mario Andreoli, inventor of the world-famous sparkling nativity scene on the hill of Tre Croci.
I’ve always been very rooted in my land and, together with my family, I take part in its safeguard. We are among the founding members of "Fondazione Manarola Cinqueterre ONLUS”, with which we contribute to the maintenance of this wonderful but fragile landscape.
