Spotlessly clean and conveniently located apartment very close to train station. Great base for exploring the Cinque Terra. Exceptionally friendly, obliging owners. Just loved the complimentary bottle of their own wine. Apartment serviced midway during our stay.
Stefano was very helpful on our arrival. He showed us the apartment and gave us an overview of Vernozza. The apartment was clean and fit our needs perfectly. The location was just steps from the train station. We enjoyed our stay.
We booked a tour of Uffizi Gallery with Visit Today Italy. Irina was to best tour guide I have ever had. She was so knowledgeable but added a sense of humor. Ask for Irina
We really enjoyed our stay in this little apartment in Vernazza. I had done quite a bit of research trying to decide which of the 5 villages to stay in for our hikes of Cinque Terre. Veranazza was the perfect choice.
The only drawback of this accomodation is the adjacent train tracks but there are no trains through the night so that was a blessing! and I found it kind of funny- although my husband was jarred by the early morning thunder. We were out and about during the day so this did not bother us much. It was so lovely to be right in the village at night which despite the height of the tourist season was quiet in the evening. We had two great meals in the village and I have a lovely memory of dining on the street while watching local kids come out to play hide and seek in the square - their parents chatting with one another. We enjoyed being able to wear our bathing suits down to the rocky beach nearby that a storm created a couple of years ago or the little harbour (far side where water is clearer).
One small thing Stefano is that I would have liked to make fresh coffee with an expresso maker but the one there was too small for the gas hotplate to hold. I would have bought a larger one for you but in between our hikes and relaxation no time for shopping!
We will be back. Was so charming. thank you.
At the very last minute, we changed plans and decided to head to Cinque Terre. I contacted the owner and within minutes got a response and a friendly welcome. This lovely appartemento is just steps from the train station. Beautiful Vernazza is the perfect hub for your visit and after a long day of train hopping to the various cities, it was great to come home to this warm retreat. It was clean, well appointed and Alessandro met us within minutes of our arrival. He showed us around and assured us could contact them at any time. If you are heading to Cinque Terre, this is a wonderful place to hang your hat!
We stayed with our one and half year old child for an entire week in the apartment and the experience was just great.
The hotel is a minute away walking from Vernazza train station so finding the apartment and moving your luggage is very comfortable and simple. If you have traveled to any of the beautiful Cinque Terra towns with small children will certainly appreciate the easiness of arriving to your hotel fast, with no never ending stairs to climb :-)
The apartment is small but very well distributed so it feels very spacious. It is also beautifully decorated and with all the appliances to make your stay very conformable. It also has a great view of Vernazza main street. Food stores, restaurants, cafes and markets are just a few steps away.
Stefano and his mother Cinzia take care of every detail and give you a lot of great information to make the best of your stay in Cinque Terra. We were specially grateful for even having a crib for our baby when we arrived!
We look forward to return since we fell in love with the Ligurian coast, specially Vernazza, and we completely recommend casa Vacanze Zia Maria to everyone planning to visit the Cinque Terra.
