Petrella’s Point Studio has direct access from the street that takes from the main square to the castle area.
Petrella’s Point Studio has a unique value: being ground floor it’s good for guests with mobility issues. These guests can use eventually the double sofa bed at ground floor so avoiding using the other bed over the loft.
Restaurants, pubs and stores all at hand as the village beach and marina. Staying at Petrella’s Point Studio is like renting a luxury private cabin near the beach!
We have first a kitchen corner placed over a stone wall and a dining area on the opposite side. Kitchen is ideal just for simple food preparations. Under the loft we find a double sofa bed. To our left we have a spacious bathroom with shower.
This property, too, lies in a strategical part of Vernazza from where you can start your discovery tour of the village! Up, left to the castle, down to to the main square and right to the Corniglia trail.
The property takes its name from the owner’s family name, but it also reminds us of a more famous Petrella’s Point, the newsagent that became a symbol at the intersection of Bowery with Canal Street in New York.

Close to everything! Train is the best way to visit the area In case you cannot skip using your car here some info Arrival by Car There are no private car parking spots in Vernazza and we would warmly advise not to reach the village by car, only by train. Road path is still uneven and you often meet constructors, catering vans and emergency vehicles on the narrow road to reach the village. There's a car parking area over the village (about 15 eur per day), but far from properties (about 1 km) uphill. You can easily park your car in La Spezia, at the garage below the train station (approx. 15 eur per day - and you pay at the end of your staying) or in Levanto, at public car parking spots in front of the train station (more difficult for paying ticket since you have to pay in advance at machines with money and not credit card), and then easily move from there by train (frequent trains. - approx. 20 min ride) or, if you come from Genova you can reach Levanto and park your car at public spots in front of the train station, then easily move by train from there, too. Train is anyway the best way to visit the area, trains run frequently and till late night. Please, advice us a few days before arrival about time you'll be reaching Vernazza Thank you
Easy access from the street means also that some noises of the people passing by can be heard. So a compromise must be accepted to have an easy accessible property.
WIFI is often an issue in the Cinque Terre and most of our reviews, even the most enthusiastic and positive, mention disappointment for WIFI service provided (or not provided). This property has no wifi service, since previous experiences showed it was not working properly. Sorry about that. PLEASE NOTICE! City Tax (Tassa di soggiorno) 1,00 € per person/per night and will apply to the first three days of your stay. The City Tax is not payable by children under 11, tourist guides and drivers of groups staying within the Cinque Terre area. It is a special purpose tax and the Town Council will invest all revenues on special projects to protect and improve the territory. On arrival you’ll be requested to give id cards and to pay the relative amount. Failing to do that the Town Council may fine customers with penalties from 105,00 to 500,00 euros.
