About the property

Stunning views of the 5 terre bay, directly on Vernazza's main square

This spectacular apartment faces the main square of Vernazza, with its vibrant atmosphere.

It is nicely furnished with antiques from all over the world, brought in from the owner, a native of Vernazza who has traveled all over.

It comfortably hosts four people in two rooms, the double room is directly connected to the living area but is totally separate with curtains, the other one with two beds is very intimate, exposed on the east side, towards Corniglia.

Is even available a small bed for baby from 0 to 3 year old.

From here you can experience the real mood of the cinque terre, that means Italian Riviera, aperitifs, sun-bathing, walking, dinners, everything just seconds away from this cosy house.

“La Piazzetta” has been recently renewed to make it even more comfortable and to give to its guests all the amenities they may need.

It is equipped with all the accessories to live it completely and to make you feel home.

From the raised kitchen guests can enjoy the life style of the piazza in a unique atmosphere.

It is tr perfect place from where visiting all the cinque terre and the nice art cities of Italy (Florence, Pisa, Siena, Genova, etc).

This 70 sqm house sits on one floor but it is organized on raised levels that give hierarchy to the rooms and increase the perception of the space.

In the winter nights you can add a touch of romanticism by starting the fireplace and enjoying nice dinners.

If you are looking for a special house where to spend your holidays, 'La Piazzetta' is your place.

About Stefania Celebes Resasco

I am the daughter of the owner and I do take care of running the house. My name is Stefania Celebes and I was born in Indonesia, as 'Dino', the big wood horse that welcomes guests at the entrance.

Stefania Celebes Resasco purchased this house in 1750

Why Stefania Celebes Resasco chose Vernazza

I love my house where I spent many nice summer holidays and I am happy when visitors enjoy it and experience it's unique mood.

What makes this house unique

I think that Vernazza is one of the few places in the world where you are away from the chaos of the cities, with no cars and believe me, this makes everything different, but only with sun, beaches, nice walks and good food in romantic restaurants.

I am an interior designer and I refurbished the house to make it more comfortable, keeping its character. It is a few steps away from everything (sea, port, shops, restaurants, ice cream shops, rail station....

I can assist you with all the information you may want to know. Ciao Stefania

Wonderful host and property

  • 5 of 5

Stephania was so kind and patient when our train was cancelled and we arrived three hours late. She met us with a warm welcome at the train station and walked us to our apartment. The location was perfect for our trail hiking in Cinque Terre and for our dining and grocery needs. The apartment was very clean and decorated in some interesting antiques as pictured. There were only two of us, but it could have accommodated 4 very comfortably. I highly recommend this apartment, location, and Stephania as a host.

overall great location - very fun place to stay for a family

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderful experience at this home. The big bonus is the location--so close to train and so close to water and food. The only problem is that if you are bigger than a medium size person you WILL NOT fit in the shower. It is quite small. Stephanie was very helpful and very easy to contact. We had a minor issue while we were there and she helped us resolve it immediately. Small grocery store nearby, beach towels provided and super close to the hiking trails. Really ideal location. It is loud on Sundays when they do the recycling but it was not a huge deal.
