Maemuna Sea View is an enchanting property as charming as the name it bears, he name of legendary Mermaid, very popular in Vernazza traditions.
The property still reminds us of a typical fisherman apartment. And the views…are just breathtaking!
We have access to Maemuna Sea View from a curious and hidden passage in the heart of the village, right over Belforte restaurant.
From the entrance we have a corridor: on our left a tiny bathroom with shower; then a a small kitchen corner ideal just for breakfast preparation or warming of takeaway dishes. There’s no stove but we have a refrigerator, a microwave oven, tea and coffee boiler. After the kitchen we encounter a sea view twin bedroom with bunkbeds. Then we have a large sitting and dining area with amazing sea views. In the room a double sofa bed, a couch, a round dining table.
The owner of Maemuna loves this property since she bought in her youth and lived here magical moments with her family. She now spends her Summer time in the apartment upstairs and she knows how nice is enjoying the space of the amazing sitting room of Maemuna. For this reason she decided to keep a sofa bed in that area, even though it's the only double bed of the apartment. She just bought a new and comfortable double sofa bed for not ruining that amazing sitting area and not giving that room just the look of a bedroom. She preferred giving it multiple functionalities - sitting, dining and sleeping area. Maemuna is so a perfect property even for long sojourns. Guests won't ever regret having chosen it!
Maemuna Sea View is ideal location for all couples or families looking fro romance. Please, consider that for space reasons there’s only a double sofa bed (plus the bedroom with bunk beds). There are steps to reach this property, being on a prominent part of the village over Ventegà square and the waters, but a compromise must be paid to have excellent views. Porter service available on request.
Maemuna Sea Views is also ideal location for solo travellers and photographers.
Maemuna is situated in a great location. The entrance to the building is through a cute and hidden passage. Travel light to reach Maemuna, since there are steps to reach the apartment. We suggest taking bags porterage on arrival, if it’s before 6:00, within expected check-in time. Price approx. 3.50 euros per bag.
Maemuna Sea View charme is all around: we can still imagine a woman at night waving goodby to her husband going at sea and then anxiously waiting for his return at dawn with a boat full of fish!
The legend says that long time a go a Vernazza girl named Maemuna recovered herself in a cave by the sea in the intent to escape a Saracen pirates assault. Sadly, she could never find a way out of it. The villagers, though, kept on hearing his moaning voice and they believed she attracted with her songs fishermen and pirates. Today there still a cave near Vernazza village bearing her name. Groaning sounds still can be heard coming from there in stormy nights. The rocks that hide that cave can be seen from Maemuna Sea View apartment.
