About Cristina Bisà
My family owns this unique apartment in Vernazza since some years and we feel responsable of its maintenace and we want to preserve it as it was restored in mid '800.
Cristina Bisà purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Cristina Bisà 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.

We visited Vernazza from the United States in July. My husband and I and our two sons stayed for three nights. Here are the highlights. Vernazza is probably one of the most charming of the five villages. It is small compared to Monterosso but has a small beach and a little village. We loved the size of it. Christina’s apartment is right in the heart of it. You can’t beat the location for ease and proximity to everything. And the apartment itself is very well appointed. We were in Italy during a major heat wave and were so grateful for the air conditioning in both bedrooms! The bedrooms are also ideal for a family of four. One double room with Queen size bed and another bedroom with two singles which had a second en-suite bath. The living / sitting room is spacious and comfortable with gorgeous 18th century tiles. While staying in Vernazza we took the ferry to some of the other villages one day and then spent the next day at a private beach in Monterosso. Sadly it was too hot for us to enjoy a hike so we never made it on one, preferring to remain by the sea. But we hope to return and experience the Cinque Terre from above one of these days. Thank you Christina for letting us enjoy your lovely apartment!
Charming apartment with Beautiful Views
We loved our 3 night stay at Cristina's Apartment. The views are breathtaking and the highlight of this home. Apartment is clean, spacious, and well maintained while paying respect to it's heritage. Photos are accurate and bed is comfortable. Apartment is conveniently located above main town square and short walk to everything in town. At night we closed the windows and had no trouble with noise from the square below. Apartment staff works in nearby store and available for any questions or concerns. Washer in apartment was very nice convenience to wash clothing in the middle of our 2 week Italy vacation.
Traveler Tips - I do recommend bringing laundry soap so you don't have to purchase in Vernazza. We were thankful a past guest left enough soap (laundry pods) for 2 loads! I also recommend bringing cash. Most local businesses (including restaurants) do not take credit cards. That was quite a shock for nice restaurants in town.
Overall we loved our stay in Cristina's Apartment and in Cinque Terre. Beautiful home and villages. Highly recommend visiting and staying here.
Thank you Nancy. We leave laundry soap (as shower gel, shampoo and soap) at the apartment in a number of pods based on how many days the guests stay in. We do not leave a full box because some guests take the pods away (!) and also because not all guests use the laundry machine.
4 of us spent 3 perfect nights in Vernazza. The view from the apartment and the beautiful living room almost made it difficult to leave it to see the rest of cinque terre!! The beds and pillows were comfy and the sheets smelled so clean.
My husband and I were thrilled to stay in your apartment! I was clean, homey, and we enjoyed opening the windows to listen to nature! I would recommend this apartment to anyone!
In the heart of Vernazza, beautiful apartment
We had a wonderful three night stay in this spacious 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment. Centrally located overlooking the harbor - you simply can’t beat the view or the ease of transporting luggage through town from the station. Cristina’s apartment is well-appointed on the second floor. Although it can get noisy being right off the plaza and harbor (which is why we chose it), the bedrooms are tucked away in the back and it was not an issue with sleeping. Cristina was very responsive, and we definitely recommend it!
Thank you Gregory!! you really hit the plus of my familiy apartment
Great space and can't beat the location!
Cristina's apartment was part of what made our trip to Cinque Terre amazing. A very spacious space overlooking the plaza - we loved coming back at the end of the day and opening the windows to hear the activitiy below. Views are of the water and plaza - can't beat that! Both bathroom showers worked great and everthing was very clean. Cristina was so helpful arranging a driver to Milan and restaurant suggestions. Close to everything - trails, restaurants, train and shops. Hope to return!
Thnak you very much! I am really happy when our guests enjoy their stay and feel the suggestion of our land and our lifestyle.

Vernazza is the only natural port of the Cinque Terre and is famous for its harbor, its multicoloured houses and its magical alleyways. Vernazza has preserved the characteristics of a typical "fishing village" and it is the truest on the Italian Riviera. Its vital center is located in a small, picturesque square, just near the harbor. It has no car traffic (a road leads into a parking lot on the edge of the town). Vernazza is an excellent location for reaching all the beautiful sites in the Gulf of La Spezia. Inside the village you can find a lot of facilities to meet all requirements, including banks, chemist's, bars, restaurants with local cuisine, boutiques and pizzerias.
