“Beautiful views, easy location, andvery clean”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The view from the balcony was picture perfect. The apartment was clean and it was easy meeting Marcella at the nearby restaurant. She made us feel right at home. She gets extra points for running to the train station after I left my cell phone in the apartment and catching us literally as we were about to step on a train to leave town. Thank you for that!! We stayed on a Sunday and Monday so noise wasn't an issue but the church bell did wake us at 7 but that would have happened at any location in town. The apartment was also convenient. Just a few minute walk from the train station. The benefit of being on the plaza is that there aren't much stairs compared to apartments higher in the hills. So if you have a lot of luggage, this is an easy place to stay.

“Perfect Apartment in the Heart of the Best Town of The Cinque Terre”
Reviewed May 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wonderful apartment right on the square of Vernazza, perfect for people watching! Great balcony with outrageous views of the square, hills and harbor. Marcella was right there waiting for us as we arrived and was a perfect host. The apartment has a small kitchen with microwave (no oven), fridge and sink along with dishware. The apartment was not large, but perfect for two. Cool artwork, good Wi-Fi (No TV, but Netflix on our Kindle worked for us) and functional, cute furnishings. Yes, being in the square means you get the hustle and bustle, but windows and patio doors are double paned and shut out just about all of the noise when you don't want it. In the morning, grab a coffee and pastry at one of the places on the square (they all open at 8am) and enjoy Vernazza before all the other tourists get there - you'll almost feel like a local. Dinner at Belforte (opens at 7pm, get a table on the second level, you'll need to make a reservation at least a day or two beforehand) then just a short stroll back to your apartment. Minimal steps from the square, so you can save the stair climbing for your walks or hikes. Perfect location in the heart of the Jewel of the Cinque Terre. Thanks, Marcella!

“Fantastic location, wonderful host”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Marcella's apartment right on the harbor piazza is exquisite! The balcony looks right over the harbor with amazing views, and the apartment itself is beautiful and immaculately clean. Marcella is a very gracious host, so welcoming and friendly! I highly recommend this apartment.

The location is just phenomenal with views to die for, and you are right in the centre of everything. Last night after the tourists left we could see the children playing in the square, and hear the locals drinking in the bars. (If you don't like noise, this may not be the place for you, but the double glazing is very effective.) This morning we watched all the villagers bring in their boats before a tremendous thunderstorm, saw the vans unloading the produce, the bincart emptying the bins. The apartment itself is comfortable, spotlessly clean and almost as beautiful as the views. It has been meticulously designed and there is fabulous attention to detail, including a great shower, tea, coffee, biscuits, olive oil, very fast wifi etc etc. Marcella was lovely too - molte grazie, bravo!

Fabulous location and great apartment. The only criticism was that the WiFi in the apartment was un-useable and I ended up going to the local cafe and using theirs.

“Incredible view, location and overall place to stay in Cinque Terre!”

My boyfriend and I stayed at this apartment for 2 nights in June 2013. We were worried about parking but Vernazza has a little parking lot above the town that is cheap and an easy walk to the town. This apartment is one of the only ones with a balcony on the square! You are in the heart of Vernazza with so much action and atmosphere around you! The apartment is spacious and nice and we used the little balcony to sit and drink and it was wonderful! Only downside is that there is no stove, oven or microwave so you can't cook anything. It can be a little noisy in the evenings but I didn't mind as felt like there was a lively buzz!

I absolutely recommend this beautiful apartment. It was smooth and easy meeting Marcella and getting the keys. We had an amazing time!
