Guestbook comments from the owner
Great location overlooking the main square and waterfront. Very spacious with two bathrooms and fully contained kitchen. Vernazza has recently been devestated by land slides but is a beautiful town and a great place from which to explore the Cinque Terre Natioanl Park.

My parents summer apartment, 'pied dans l'eau'.

Restored in 2010 for family use.

Totally new shower rooms and kithchen.

Cristina Bisa purchased this apartment in 2009

Because it's a unique piece in a unique place.

Because this apartment is authentic, as its ceiling painted by the owner in mid '800, and it's in Vernazza, the most beautifull of 5 Terre villages; because it's in the hart of the village, on the square front sea, on the beach.

To be in the hart of the 5 Terre, in the most authentic and preserved village, in a fantastic sea location as well in the middle of the path links to Monterosso and Corniglia, 2 minutes walk from the train station.

DELIGHTFUL APARTMENT IN A BEAUTIFUL SPOT

  • 5 out of 5
Wow, this place was wonderful!! The apartment is just as depicted in the photos and described in the listing. It was really easy to find--Cristina provided pictures of the street and front door, and excellent directions. It is a short walk from the train station, all down hill. The apartment was clean and well-appointed--the painted ceiling in the living room was awesome! It was a nice place to just chill sometimes. The kitchen was quite adequate--we prepared a number of meals. Cristiana at the tobacco shop provided the keys and a quick orientation and was very helpful as we got our feet on the ground--even made special reservations for a birthday dinner at Belforte. Cristina kept in contact with us via email prior to arrival and during our stay. We particularly enjoyed being part of Vernazza, going to the local shops for groceries, sitting in the piazza with a beer, strolling the streets, and being recognized after a few days. We read reviews complaining about the noise--the piazza is the center of life in this village, and there is a constant buzz, punctuated by laughter all day long and into the night. On those nights we needed to we just used ear plugs (available at the farmacia)--it did not dampen our enjoyment of the apartment and this lively little village. Don't be afraid to engage the local shop owners or residents you see sitting on the benches in the morning--they are all very charming and interested in your experiences. The paths through and out of the village are delightful, but lots of steps. Take your time to really enjoy this enchanting place. We did a wine tasting event sponsored by Save Vernazza that was just fantastic---learned about local wine production and local foods in a wonderful setting on a cliff above the sea. We had a wonderful time in Vernazza, will return, and will recommend the apartment to family and friends without a doubt. And the Cinque Terre in general--it is a special place.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 out of 5
Of all the places we stayed at this was our favorite. The apartment was very clean and spacious. We loved the location right in the center of beautiful Vernazza. It can get a little noisy but that is to be expected when your right on the piazza with all the locals, it actually adds to the charm. The apartment is nicely decorated and the painted ceiling is beautiful. We never used the stove, as their are so many wonderful choses of restaurants right out your door we chose a different one every night. Christiana who gives you your key was so helpful, she showed us around the apartment, answered all our questions and even made a dinner reservation for us. We were so happy and comfortable there we didn't want to leave! I should add that the day after we left I realized I had left something, I called Christina and she Immediately mailed it to me at my next destination a country away! I highly recommend this accommodation.

YOU COULDN'T BE MUCH CLOSER TO THE WATER!

You couldn't be much closer to the water!
  • 3 out of 5
Overall our impression of the apartment was favorable, but it definitely had strengths an weaknesses. Arrival to the apartment was a challenge as the person at the store who had the key spike no English, was not willing to come help open the apartment after we went up and down steep flights of steps that had no electricity and would have been pitch dark if it was not for the light of our cell phones. We think the lack of electricity was due to major construction on the building that was happening. This also caused us to be woken in the mornin because someone was drilling into the other side of the wall from where we were sleeping. In the end, we were given the wrong key and the man at the shop reluctantly came to help show us the unmarked apartment door. The apartment was clean, smelled of ocean air, waves can be heard crashing from the living room and could not have been more centrally located in the town. A few initial frustrations arose though on arrival: no hot water and so no heat or way to take a shower, lighting the gas cook stove was not intuitive to a non-Italian and after many phone calls to Cristina it was figured out. We would recommend an apartment guidebook on how to troubleshoot these and other items such as the very confusing clothes washing machine, as there was no one easily available in the town to come over and explain what to do.
Having wifi and a kitchen definitely helps for a longer stay. There are a few good grocery/deli establishments nearby where one can pick up good local ingredients and wine. Ciao and enjoy the cinque terra, we definitely did!

Owner's Response: But finally you survived!
I am sorry for the lack of light in the 18 steps (which are nothing for a 5 Terre apartmemt), due to works inside the first floor apartment (now fnished). The hot water: the electronic card has now been changed, even if the heater is less than 2 years old. The stove and the washing machine - which both work properly - are an issue for some non EU guests: I will think about instructions to leave at home. The guy works alone at the tobacco and could not leave the shop while the apartment is at 10 meters from the shop, and the apartment entrance is the only door at the 2nd floor, as clearly explained in the intlstructions sent at the reservation time.
But at the very end....you were in a finely restored 18' cent. authentic fully equiped clean apartment with sea view, in the heart of Vernazza, where Vernazza is the heart of the 5 Terre, Unesco site.

COOL APARTMENT IN THE COOLEST TOWN.

  • 4 out of 5
Great location on the piazza on the water front. Hearing the ocean at night is very relaxing after the hubbub of the day. While it can be loud - such as fishermen bring their boats into the piazza late at night for a red-flag warning - it was very fun to have the contrast of overlooking the daily crush of day-tourists and the quite of the evenings and early mornings for almost private walks in the piazza and along the breakwater. Customer service is excellent and website description is very accurate. Definitely recommended.

PERFECT VERNAZZA HISTORICAL APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
First, this is a beautiful apartment, with a frescoed ceiling in the living room that was a joy to walk into each morning. The views from the living / dining room are exactly as depicted in description. The two bathrooms are unusual in most older European apartments, and were a bonus. The kitchen was totally functional. And squeaky clean. I had to laugh at a couple of reviews who nitpicked at having to light the stove with a match or the lighter provided. This is a beautiful historical building, totally updated, with an original kitchen stove and gorgeous old marble sink. It doesn't take rocket science to light a stove! Also I had to question the few reviews who mentioned the noise. I loved the happy chatter from the beautiful piazza directly below, and the church bells ringing. This apartment was a beautiful experience. Christina, the owner could not have been more helpful, answering my e-mail questions, providing me with help with my luggage from the train station to the stairs up to the apartment. The location is perfect, just a few minutes from the train station, and best of all so close to the harbor boats taking us to the other villages. This is my opinion is a much better choice than using the train to visit the other towns. A reasonable and a beautiful way to make these trips. Finally, Christiana, who helps settle us in, who works next door, did so much for us in explaining the in's and out's of the apartment and arranging in detail a golf day for one of us. In all, an easy 5 stars. I would definitely come here again.

BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC APARTMENT NOT TO BE MISSED

  • 4 out of 5
Wonderful apartment for a family of four. It is perfectly situated, close to train station, restaurant, the sea, the trails leading to the other villages. Upon reading the other reviews, I agree with the noise level although falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves more than make up for it. I also agree that the kitchen is very small and that the 'stove/hot plate' is not the most convenient since it has to be lit up with a match. Then again, we never had any problems with it and easily cooked our meals to perfection. The only disappointment was that the lights in the second bathroom never worked. We emailed the owner and tried what she recommended without success. We are used to sharing one bathroom, so again it wasn't a problem for us. The living room with the frescoe on the ceiling is amazing; we felt we were in another century altogether. I highly recommend this apartment on the wonderful, beautiful village of Vernazza.

Owner's Response: Hello!.

Thanks for your review, you exactly caught the emotions given by this place: the sound of the sea, the beauty of the historic details like the fresco ceiling and the strategic location of our apartment .

I apologize again for the light that was not working in the yellow shower room: we checked when you left and it is not due tue the lamps but it is due to the electric devise inside the mirror. We had to order a specific spare part....
For the kitchen stove: again I wonder why the guests use to light it up with matches as there are 2 gas lighter in there......! ;-)
Regarding the stove....a solution could be to knock down the old bricks fire place and put at its place a bigger, modern stove respect the actual "old style" stove placed inside: my parents tried to keep as much as possible the authentic details of the apartment during the 2009 restoring works....and they decided to mantain the kitchen fire place as this is a holiday apartment .
It's nice then to know that you managed anyhow to cook for four !
Hope to have you again in Vernazza.
All my best. Cristina

Vernazza is one of the Cinque Terre villages: on the sea side, next to Monterosso, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. From Vernazza you can take the train to get to the other villages, or just walk enjoying the beauty of the landscapes from the steep paths rising the hills, among lemon trees and grapes terraces, right in front of the sea: in summer the villages are easily connected by ferry boat as well.

The Cinque Terre villages are in the region of La Spezia, famous for other beautiful locations such as Portovenere, Lerici, Tellaro and Sarzana. It is easy to travel around the villages and in all the region by train, with short connection trip and thanks to a very large train time schedule offer.

From La Spezia station or by car, via highway, it is also easy to get to Pisa (60km, the nearest airport as well), Lucca (80 km), Florence (115 km), Leghorn (90 km) from where to get to Elba Island by ferryboat, and then Genoa (100 km), Parma (100 km) and Milan (200 km).

Live some days in Vernazza means also to enjoy the tastes, flavors and colors of the Italian Riviera; after the flood passed on October 25th, 2011 a very sad event to which the people of Vernazza reacted firmly, people from all over the world come more than once to visit us.... discover yourself the very good reasons for!

Notes:

The sitting room ceiling was peinted in the mid of the XIX century by the owner of that time. Today all forniture are authentic or design with nice linen and table sets (diches, glasses...). Only 18 steps to get to the apartment leve, not too many for the 5 Terre! Authentic and romantic this apartment is well keeped and maintenance is done every year, to deliver the best place to the guests and to the owner.
