About Cristina Bisa

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

Why Cristina Bisa chose Vernazza

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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.

Breathtaking!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived in Vernazza to a busy, hectic, hot, frenetic, colorful and stunning seaside town! We had paid for parking and managed to squeeze our big vehicle into the spot. As we walked into our second floor apartment all of the craziness of the crowds and heat disappeared as the place was stunning. It was clean, charming and welcoming. The apartment is well appointed and overlooks the main town square and has a perfect sea view!! It was STUNNING to look out the windows. The apartment has two generous bedrooms and two bathrooms. We stayed as a family of four for 5 nights and were extremely happy with the property. We loved swimming in the sea, eating calamari in the town square, hiking and enjoying a spritz or two in the town square. The kitchen is well appointed and has an italian stove top espresso maker for making great coffee. Also you can buy coffee at various places around town...impossible to find a bad cappucinno or wine in this Country!!! I could go on about how perfect the apartment was...loved it! The town was charming and the bakery and deli had sufficient provisions. We loved the late night activity in the square. The town came alive with locals after 10 PM or so. We will go back to this beautiful town and would stay at this apartment again. Magical.

Owner's Response: Whow! you make me cry.
Some people write the apartment is noisy...but you decide sto stay in the hart of things and of life if you chose for it! It is authentic and unique, one of the few with still '800 fresco ceiling and flooring... and the effort I do to keep it on order where it is fully booked from March to November is huge. A review as yours pay me back.
PS : the private parking is one of the few, for sure the largest you can find in town! Jacqueline, please contact me on my direct email address. Thank you.

Lovely apartment, but very noisy

  • 3 out of 5
Vernazza is lovely, and this apartment is lovely - exactly as depicted in the pictures. It is well furnished, with a beautiful view, cooled by sea breezes. The only caveat is that it is located directly above two restaurants. On two occasions, the noise from these places was exceptionally loud, and it went on all night long. The bedrooms are toward the rear of the apartment - but that did not seem to mitigate the noise. If you decide to stay here, my advice would be to pack your earplugs.

Owner's Response: Yes, earplugs in full summer can help in the nights (the Farmacy sells them) but it happens because coming to my parents apartment you decide to live for a short time in the "heart of things, in Vernazza, where Vernazza is the heart of Cinque Terre!".

Thank you for the appreciation of the apartment, this unique "piece of history" in Vernazza.

Great property, centrally located

  • 5 out of 5
The two bedroom apartment is wonderfully situated with views overlooking the piazza on the waterfront. It is on the first floor, with a flight of steps from the street entrance, and is well maintained and equipped. Vernazza is well placed to explore the Cinque Terre villages and with both ferry and train access close handy. We were delighted to stay at this apartment and would recommend it.

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.

Yes you got the right mood from Vernazza, from the Cinque Terre and the vivant athmosphere of this land and its still authentic natural and enviromental beauty that we try to preserve. Hope to have you back!

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!

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.

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.
