Why Fabio Ausenda chose Vernazza
After working for a couple years at the Cinque Terre in planning the Coastal Protected area, I have been away from Cinque Terre for over 25 years. Corngilia it has always been my favorite place because less crowded than other places in Cinque Terre. But very close to the beach and to my favorite walk. The Corniglia Vernazza Walk. In a recent trip to cinque Terre I saw the "for sale" sign and I fell in love with this charming studio, his location but in particular his beautiful garden terrace.
What makes this Apartment unique
The proximity to the Corniglia Marina, the vicinity to teh best Cinque Terre walk (Corngilia Vernazza) and the spectacular Sea View and of the Cinque Terre sunsets that can be enjoyed from the Garden Terrace of the apartment.

Beautiful spot, Great apartment, Fabio was the best!
As a new traveler the owner helped me through out my stay and referred me to other areas through out my 2 week trip to Italy. Just a great guy! The apartment was very nice, quiet, close to the center of town. I will be back.
Nice property in a beautiful location!
Small but cozy apartment in wonderful location! Beautiful view. Fabio is great with communication, very easy to deal with. Gave us great info on the area, too. Highly recommend this place.
We loved Corniglia because it was small and not crowded. The apartment view was enchanting.
We are already planning our next visit. The only suggestion I would make is to get softer pillows. Minor issue for how wonderful it was.
Great studio with beautiful view of the water in beautiful Corniglia(the best of the 5T in my opinion). Fabio provided step by step directions to get to the room and great recommendations for enjoying the cinque terre.
Would have given 5 stars, but there is a slight basement like/musty smell to the room. We kept the door open when in the room for the fresh air. Otherwise, perfect place for our two night stay!
Fantastic stay in Corniglia!
We loved our little home away from home! It started with great communication with Fabio. Very clear instructions from how to find their place to suggestions on various hikes. Included is a great little kitchen space with all that you need for preparing meals if you want. There’s room to move around for two people comfortably. The bed was comfortable and you feel very little movement from your partner. The tap water in all of Italy is drinkable so that was convenient as you need a lot of it!
Corniglia is a great village to stay in, especially in the evening to get away from the crowds. At Fabio’s you have your own little garden to relax in and soak up the view and the sunsets. We really loved it here and Fabio’s set up is easy and comfortable! I’d highly recommend it!!!
The only thing that would have made it better is if we could have met our hosts in person!
Very well situated to do the most popular 5 terre walk from Corniglia to Vernazza
