Recanissu Apartment is a lovely and bright location, 4th floor over Vernazza main street. It’s the property one you would love to rent and feel like a local! It’s a spacious family apartment, characterized for its large rooms, an authentic rarity in Vernazza. Well equipped, provided with air conditioning and with a long terrace, strategically located on the main street, midway from the train station to the marina. It’s ideal location even for long rentals.
Access to Recanissu Apartment is from Via Visconti, second part of the main street. The apartment is on a fourth floor, the top of the building, with steep steps (guests are advised!). On entering the apartment we find a bright entrance hall, then a second large hall on which all the apartment rooms open:
a double bedroom with access to the long balcony
a large fully equipped kitchen with access to the long balcony
a spacious bathroom with bathtub and shower
a twin bedroom with extra bed cot and a second balcony overlooking the “caruggetto”, one of the most curious backroad of the village. On the balcony we have the washing machine.
a double sofa bed in the spacious entrance hall
The kitchen and double bedroom balcony are the winning elements of Recanissu Apartment. It is an amazing observation point of the main street and its life. From here we can also see the tower castle and the “Sciuio” part of the village where hardly the sun beats. Charming views also of the Muin a Ventu, the second tower of the village that was once a wind mill and now an historical villa for rental.
Kitchen and double bedroom have air conditioning and in the very hot days it is sufficient to start the machine just for a short time to cool down the temperature. If the season is not very hot it is sufficient to open opposite windows to get an ideal and agreeable temperature. Please, limit the use of air conditioning both for your health and for saving our planet.
Go Green in the Cinque Terre!
“Recanissu” means in local dialect “licorice”. The apartment bears this name because of part of the apartment floor, which is black as licorice.
Recanissu Apartment is a comfortable and relaxing property. It is therefore ideal for families. There are many steps inside the building, we can’t deny that, and the last portion of steps is steep. Anyway, once you get to the top, you’ll really feel “at home”. Your stay at Recanissu will let you live like a local the village atmosphere!

Via Visconti, where the property is located, is the second portion of the main street that curiously bears two names. Apparently it’s a long uninterrupted street connecting the train station to the main square and the marina.
The first part is Via Roma. It ends with the Pharmacy on your left and with Pizzeria da Basso on your right.
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
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). Sorry about that.
