About the property

In the heart of the Cinque Terre is San Bernardino

The apartment is located in the Santuary town of San Bernardino. It is part of the community of Vernazza and is a 10 minute drive to Vernazza. It is just above Vernazza and Corniglia, with views of Corniglia and Manarola. This quite village has a bar and trails leading to all the Cinque Terre villages.

About Julia Basso

Hello I'm Julia from California. I've been in Vernazza now for 13 years. Paolo Basso is my husband and he was born and raised in Vernazza. San Bernardino is his father's family home. We have a restaurant in Vernazza, Taverna del Capitano. We are always around and easy to find, for whatever your needs might be. Everyone in the restaurant speaks English.

Julia Basso purchased this apartment in 1800

Why Julia Basso chose San Bernardino

This is a perfect property for someone who wants to live the Italian lifestyle. You have a kitchen for making creative dishes and a beautiful view for enjoying a glass of wine after a long days walk on the Cinque Terre trails.

This is property is for someone who likes to live in the nature of the National Park. I have put in a new queen size mattress 200cm long for 2018.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a quite place in an amazing position. The views are breathtaking. I have equipped the apartment with herbs, olive oil , aceto and coffee and sugar for your first days needs. I want you to make your self at home. The apartments position is in the heart of the National Park. It is as 20 to 30 minute walk to the sea. But you will wake up to the fresh air and breeze of the pine trees.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location to explore the area if you are traveling by car but be warned! The roads are very narrow and curvy.

Stunning views of the sea

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located on a steep hill. Be prepared to drive to the towns of the CT and park early in the morning. The apartment has absolutely stunning views and was comfortable enough. The locals and hosts are very welcoming. In order to get wifi, one must walk to the local bar-not a big deal for us but that wasn't clear.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I spent three days here with my girlfriend for a week and couldn't have hoped for anything better. The view from the apartment is beautiful! The place was clean and tidy, and we were allowed to pick what we could from the garden. We hiked between the 5 villages on the coast, and the views were tremendous. Paolo was very helpful, and although our schedules did not mesh to meet Julia, she was very helpful and accommodating over the phone and through VRBO. Highly highly recommend this place!

Room with a view is an understatement

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my girlfriend for a week and couldn't be happier. Pictures cannot do the view from the apartment justice, it is simply breathtaking. Clean and simple apartment overlooking Corniglia and Manarola. The people of San Bernadino were a highlight for us and we had a cappuccino every morning with them. Buying a map of the trails worked well as we hiked for days using trails between towns and in the mountains not frequented by the tourists. The views from the higher up trails steal the show. Paolo was very helpful (unfortunately never had the chance to meet Julia) and was always available at his restaurant to provide helpful tips, advice and a delicious meal. We are already discussing when we can return again.

A Most Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

It was so peaceful and the views from the apartment are so beautiful I almost didn't want to leave the building! But there is so much to see & do in the area and this was a prime central location. Free parking was available and then one could hike or take the bus down to Vernazza and then take the train or a boat or hike more. The residents of San Bernardino were delightful and welcoming. I would return in a heartbeat and stay....forever! Paolo and Julia were very helpful.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My husand & I were looking for a quiet place to relax away from the loud crowded cities at the end of our trip to Italy and we found it! The apartment is comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent hours enjoying the views and the sound of the waves! Julia and Paolo are very nice and helpful. They have a wonderful restaurant in Vernazza! The local wine is great too! If you are traveling by train from anyplace south of Vernazza I highly recommend that you take an early train. Cruise ships dock in LaSpezia, their passengers take the train to Vernazza for a day of hiking...the trains are very crowded. There is a shuttle that runs from Vernazza up the mountain about every 3 hours. We enjoyed our stay at the apartment and were sad to leave.
