My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in Sept 2008 and it was a fantastic experience.
Vernazza is by far the most beautiful of the 5 villages and Tre Terrazzi was the best place to stay in Vernazza.
The accommodation consists of a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs. A kitchen, lounge room and bathroom upstairs as well as a beautiful terrace off the lounge room with a great view of the village and a terrace off the kitchen with a view of the ocean. There is also a huge roof terrace which has 360 degree views of the village, surrounding farm terraces and ocean.
What makes this accommodation so great is that you actually stay with Enzo his wife Mundalay and their son Manuel. There are 2 rooms downstairs of which you can book one or two but once Enzo has a booking he will not book out the other room so you will be the only guests there.
Enzo and his family sleep upstairs in the lounge room on fold out lounge beds. It sounds like an odd arrangement but it actually works beautifully and staying with Enzo and his family is what makes this such a special place to stay.
They cook you a beautiful breakfast each morning, served out on the balcony. Enzo has all of the local knowledge of where to go and what to do (his family has lived in Vernazza for 3 generations) he knows the best restaurants and the best shops and if you don't feel like doing the walk between all of the villages, as we didn't, he can take you down to the dock and show you were to rent your own boat for the day so you can cruise up and down the coast in your own boat (driving it yourself). A much more relaxing and romantic way to see Cinque Terre in our opinion.
I can not recommend this place highly enough, it really is a true local experience rather than the same experience that all of the day trippers get trekking through town every day looking around for 5 mins and trekking off to the next place.
Please say hi to Enzo and his family from us, our stay here was one of the best experiences on our honeymoon which we will never forget......A magic place.
