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 Vernazza

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.

Loved the location in veranazza

  • 5 of 5

Great location. My favorite town in cinque terre. The owner’s sister has a shop downstairs and was super nice and friendly. A suggestion would be a few more towels for the guests-maybe being american we are used to more, but I need a hand towel and face cloth! Thanks for the great stay. I will definitely recommend your apartment!

I really loved coming when it was off season. I can’t imagine doing the paths with tons of people. Although there weren’t as many restaurants open we did find good ones and really enjoyed the experience.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 days in Vernazza with another couple and this was a perfect place to stay. Directly on the sea, it provided endless views. We were steps away from our cappuccino in the morning, and many restaurant choices were at our doorstep. It's a wonderful spot for relaxing after hiking the trails between the other towns in the Cinque Terre. We are rating it a 4 star instead of 5 because the second bedroom had very tiny twin beds and we would have been more comfortable in another type of bed configuration. That being said, I would still encourage anyone to choose this great apartment while in Vernazza.

Perfect position

  • 4 of 5

When I first walked into the appartment I thought I was in the wrong one as the photo s on the website were so different to the actual room even the lovely plates on the wall were replaced by very ordinary ones. Unfortunately the condition of the furnishings need attention. Many tiles looked dirty some were broken but it was explained that given the age their was nothing to be done to improve them The linen on the bed was also in need of updating. The television didn’t work and when we asked for the pin no we were told the tv was not working so no tv for our stay. However the bathrooms were great the appartment was very large the church bells ringing were great it’s a wonderful historic building is a perfect position and we were privileged to stay there The kitchen was quite well equipped with a good size fridgeand it was great having a washing machine The main bedroom was large You have to walk up two flights of steep steps to get inside so that was a challenge. Listening to the sea at night was lovely Being above the crowds but not in them was great. The painted ceiling in the living room was intriguing. I spend quite a while studying the art. It was fun and memorable I would recommend this accommodation. It would be the best in Vernazza

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.

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.
