Introducing this property

Recanissu Apartment is a lovely and bright location, 4th floor over Vernazza main street. It’s the property one  you would love to rent and feel like a local! It’s a spacious family apartment, characterised for its large rooms and 2 bathrooms, an authentic rarity in Vernazza. Well equipped, provided with air conditioning and with a long terrace, strategically located on the main street, midway from the train station to the marina. It’s ideal location even for long rentals.

The Apartment

Access to Recanissu Apartment is from Via Visconti, second part of the main street. The apartment is on a fourth floor, the top of the building, with steep steps (guests are advised!). On entering the apartment we find a bright entrance hall, then a second large hall on which all the apartment rooms open:

a double bedroom with access to the long balcony (with AC)

a large fully equipped kitchen with access to the long balcony (with AC)

a spacious bathroom with bathtub and shower

a smaller bathroom with shower

a twin bedroom  (with ceiling fan) with extra bed cot and a second balcony overlooking the “caruggetto”, one of the most curious backroad of the village. On the balcony we have the washing machine.

a double sofa bed in the spacious entrance hall

The kitchen and double bedroom balcony are the winning elements of Recanissu Apartment. It is an amazing observation point of the main street and its life. From here we can also see the tower castle and the “Sciuio” part of the village where hardly the sun beats.  Charming views also of the Muin a Ventu, the second tower of the village that was once a wind mill and now a historical villa for rental.

Kitchen and double bedroom have air conditioning while second bedroom (which is anyway cooler) has ceiling fan and in the very hot days it is sufficient to start the machine just for a short time to cool down the temperature. If the season is not very hot it is sufficient to open opposite windows to get an ideal and agreeable temperature. Please, limit the use of air conditioning both for your health and for saving our planet.

Go Green in the Cinque Terre!

There’s wifi in the apartment.

Why Choosing it

Recanissu Apartment is a comfortable and relaxing property. It is therefore ideal for families. There are many steps inside the building, we can’t deny that, and the last portion of steps is steep. Anyway, once you get to the top, you’ll really feel “at home”. You stay at Recanissu will let you live like a local the village atmosphere!

Cinque Terre Riviera will offer complimentary Porter service (up to 4 bags).

Good to Know

“Recanissu” means in local dialect “licorice”. The apartment bears this name because of part of the apartment floor, which is black as licorice.

Via Visconti, where the property is located, is the second portion of the main street that curiously bears two names. Apparently it’s a long uninterrupted street connecting the train station to the main square and the marina.

The first part is Via Roma. It ends with the Pharmacy on your left and with Pizzeria da Basso on your right.

1. complimentary welcome breakfast for your first morning in Vernazza
2. wine bottle for your anniversary or your birthday! (event must be specified at time of reservation)
3. concierge office in Vernazza open from 10:30 as.m. to 1:30p-m. and from 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m from Mid March to Early November

Guest Review

  1. Shelley - Airbnb Guest says:

    “Love, love, love this place. The location is pretty much unbeatable. It is on the Main Street of Vernazza with the harbor literally around the corner. The space inside is so nice. They have renovated it to have modern conveniences and everyday comforts. I’ll be honest, even after reading all the reviews about the stairs, they still hit me like a ton of bricks. Butttt, with that being said, it was worth it. I’m not in great shape, but my mom and I took them little by little and we honestly got used to them. It was worth it to have the awesome balcony overlooking the Main Street. Can’t wait to be back in Vernazza and stay here again!!!”

    Marco greeted us warmly upon arrival. Flat was spacious with nice layout and view of the action in street below. Quaint, without being remote. Really happy we stayed here.
    Stairs are steep-but the apartment is worth the climb.

    Perfect, quiet location on Cinque Terre and great views from the balcony
    We arrived passed their deadline to check-in so we picked up the keys at the office in a box with a code which was very easy and it was on the way between the train station and the unit. Great kitchen with full size fridge. Washing machine for laundry and clothes lines in the front and back balconies. Front balcony off the kitchen is FANTASTIC!! Not many units have these in Vernazza. Comfortable beds too.
    It was well advertised about the fact that there is no elevator in the building and this was on the 3rd floor. This is a centuries old village and so we were never expecting an elevator anyways so we were fine with our 2 teenagers. So just make sure you are strong enough to bring your suitcases/bags up 3 flights of stairs (about 60 stairs). Worth it!

    Excellent location, lots of room
    We expected it, but there are many steps up to the apartment.
