About Cristina Bisa

My parents summer apartment, 'pied dans l'eau'.

Restored in 2010 for family use.

Totally new shower rooms and kithchen.

Cristina Bisa purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Cristina Bisa chose Cinque terre

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.

What makes this apartment unique

To be in the hart of the 5 Terre, in the most authentic and preserved village, in a fantastic sea location as well in the middle of the path links to Monterosso and Corniglia, 2 minutes walk from the train station.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location overlooking the main square and waterfront. Very spacious with two bathrooms and fully contained kitchen. Vernazza has recently been devestated by land slides but is a beautiful town and a great place from which to explore the Cinque Terre Natioanl Park.

Notes:
The apartment is "In the heart of Vernazza where Vernazza is the heart of the Cinque Terre!" Enjoy the village life and people, and to be close to the beaches and to train as well paths and ferry boat connections to the other Cinque Terre villages. Each room of the apartment has windows. A superb view from the sitting room on the piazza, the hart of the village, and on the sea. The sitting room ceiling was peinted in the mid of the XIX century by the owner of that time. Today all forniture are authentic or design with nice linen and table sets (diches, glasses...). Only 18 steps to get to the apartment leve, not too many for the 5 Terre! Authentic and romantic this apartment is well keeped and maintenance closing is scheduled every year, to deliver the best place to stay to our family and to our guests.

Perfect spot in Vernazza!

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling with my husband and uncle and Cristina's apartment was our perfect base in the cinque terre! My husband and I found the larger bedroom to be very comfortable and we had the bathroom next to the kitchen. My uncle enjoyed the smaller bedroom which has its own bathroom. Having the living room was great, open the windows and enjoy all the action of Vernazza while relaxing in the gorgeous apartment. As people mentioned you can hear trucks early (but you shouldn't waste time sleeping here-get up and enjoy!) and hear children playing soccer in the square in the evening but we thought it just added to the local charm! Cristina was very helpful and easy to work with, we were arriving to town later than planned and it was no problem-she even secured us a dinner reservation with a perfect harbor view at Gambero Rosso. Having the beautiful place to stay right in the heart of Vernazza made our trip to the cinque terre unforgettable!

Owner's Response: Dear Guests you got the perfect mood of the 5 Terre lifestyle! Our land is very beautiful and lack of space is one of the reasons of this beauty! Steep hills falling in the ocean, the vyneyards, the narrow roads of our villages, together with the coloured tall houses just leave the space to the sqare on the marina beach where the village life pass buy, from the morning to the sunset...until dinner time when most visitors are gone and those left and the locals enjoy the last lazy hours of the day. Hope to see you again!

Historical, local apartment

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location and view! Couldn’t ask for better. This is a historic and nicely appointed apartment in the best spot in Vernazza. It was a great home base for two couples to enjoy the Cinque Terre.

Vernazza in september

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described and in a perfect location. Communication with the owner was quick and easy. They met us at the apartment when we arrived. If you arrive by car you have to park outside of town and take the shuttle down the hill. We parked for four days for €50 and that included the shuttle down and back to the car. You can open the windows and look out to the beach and piazza below. It's a great place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. If you're going to hike to the other towns be prepared they're not meant for the beginner. Use the train to go from town to town as it is the easiest way to get around. If use are amazing so bring your camera with you everywhere. You will not be disappointed with Cinque Terre.

In the heart of Vernazza

  • 4 of 5

Christina's apartment is right in the heart of town and overlooks the beautiful harbour and main square, and all the street life from a second floor sanctuary. The apartment is clean and comfortable and full of old world charm. After a day hiking or swimming it is a great location to enjoy a cold drink and watch the tourists and locals go about their business. Being so central it is only a short walk to the many restaurants and shops in Vernazza. Christina is great to deal with, friendly and very helpful, and we have no hesitation in recommending this lovely apartment for a special stay in Cinque Terra.

Vernazza is one of the Cinque Terre villages: on the sea side, next to Monterosso, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. From Vernazza you can take the train to get to the other villages, or just walk enjoying the beauty of the landscapes from the steep paths rising the hills, among lemon trees and grapes terraces, right in front of the sea: in summer the villages are easily connected by ferry boat as well.

The Cinque Terre villages are in the region of La Spezia, famous for other beautiful locations such as Portovenere, Lerici, Tellaro and Sarzana. It is easy to travel around the villages and in all the region by train, with short connection trip and thanks to a very large train time schedule offer.

From La Spezia station or by car, via highway, it is also easy to get to Pisa (60km, the nearest airport as well), Lucca (80 km), Florence (115 km), Leghorn (90 km) from where to get to Elba Island by ferryboat, and then Genoa (100 km), Parma (100 km) and Milan (200 km).

Live some days in Vernazza means also to enjoy the tastes, flavors and colors of the Italian Riviera; after the flood passed on October 25th, 2011 a very sad event to which the people of Vernazza reacted firmly, people from all over the world come more than once to visit us.... discover yourself the very good reasons for!
