A lot of window on each of the three facades of the apartment, from sittimg room the view is on the life of the piazza, the heart of the village and on the ocean.

About Cristina Bisà

My family owns this unique apartment in Vernazza since some years and we feel responsable of its maintenace and we want to preserve it as it was restored in mid '800.

Cristina Bisà purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Cristina Bisà 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

The location, the authentic style and the care of details.

"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 level, 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.

Great location in beautiful Vernazza

  • 5 of 5

Had a memorable stay in Vernazza. The apartment was in the perfect location with a view of the piazza, with its brightly colored umbrellas, and the sea. There was a wonderful breeze through the open windows. The bedrooms were in the back of apartment with windows overlooking a small walkway so it was nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again when in the Cinque Terra.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfectly located in Vernazza and felt a little further away from the crowd than many other places in the village. From the window, you can see the piazza and the ocean while hearing the sounds of the church bells. Cristina was very accommodating and helpful.

The only downfall is that others around can be pretty loud and if you have your windows open for airflow, which you really needed to do in July at night, it is even worse. The garbage and recycling pick-up woke us up one morning.

That being said, I still would choose this apartment for its location and hospitality of the owner.

Wonderful Winter stay in beautiful Vernazza

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute in our beautiful luminous apartment overlooking the piazza, church and sea front in Vernazza. The location could not be more beautiful with the winter sunlight streaming in and the views of the village, the sounds of children playing and people going about their daily business in the town. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with beautiful terrazzo floors and frescoed ceiling. Our local contact could not have been more helpful, meeting us from a late arrival and ensuring that we were comfortable and settled, suggesting local beauty spots (of which there are so many) and travel options to the various Cinque Terre villages, and booking our dinners in the best local restaurants.

Winter is a beautiful time to visit the Cinque Terre, never crowded, with bright sunny crisp days that were perfect for walking. Vernazza is ideally situated and offers good local shopping, dining and walking; our beautiful apartment could not have been nicer and we will definitely visit again, in the wintertime!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment could not have been closer to the action. The apartment overlooks the center square, the water and looks directly at the church. Postcard perfect. Street noise was a bit loud on garbage day, but that is to be expected in the heart of the village. Working with Cristina was great, and her instructions were easy to follow. Although we didn't meet directly with Cristina upon arrival, her staff of people in the store below were very helpful to get us situated in the apartment and with tips to get around the little village. The apartment was well maintained and had such charm. Of the 5 villages, Vernazza was our favorite. We had dinner over looking the sea just steps from the apartment. Truly a pinch-me experience to be in the heart of Cinque Terre. I would highly recommend and would love to go back to explore more someday. If I do, I know where I'll stay!

Vernazza is the only natural port of the Cinque Terre and is famous for its harbor, its multicoloured houses and its magical alleyways. Vernazza has preserved the characteristics of a typical "fishing village" and it is the truest on the Italian Riviera. Its vital center is located in a small, picturesque square, just near the harbor. It has no car traffic (a road leads into a parking lot on the edge of the town). Vernazza is an excellent location for reaching all the beautiful sites in the Gulf of La Spezia. Inside the village you can find a lot of facilities to meet all requirements, including banks, chemist's, bars, restaurants with local cuisine, boutiques and pizzerias.
