The space

If you're looking for a bucolic retreat to relax and enjoy nature this is the place for you. Beautiful in all seasons, in the summer you can enjoy the beaches along the coast, in other seasons beautiful walks in the hills.

The house is a rural house recently renovated, attached to another houses and surrounded by a ligurian style terraced garden, with olive trees, lemon trees, fig trees.
In the summer you'll have the singing of the crickets as the perfect soundtrack of your mediterreanean holiday.
There is only one private bedroom but it sleeps 5 people.
There is a private bedroom with a double bed and a single bed and a mezzanine with a sofabed.
The kitchen is all missmatched but has everything you need: gas kitchen stove with 4 rings, oven, fridge, toaster, standing mixer, etc...
There is a terrace with a table outside for you outdoor meals, or a table in the kitchen.
The bathroom has a bath and shower.
We provide linen and towels.

Please note that the house is quite isolated, so it can be difficult to move without a car. Also the road arrives at 200m from the house, so you need to walk the last path by foot. This means you don't have the noise of cars close by but means you have to carry your suitcases for a couple of minutes!

I go often by myself by train and walk the little country paths uphill (very steep) even with suitcases, and don't mind it but please make sure you're up to it.
It's obviously tougher uphill (takes me 20 min) than downhill (15 mins).

There are buses from the village of San Pietro (which is a 10 min walk) to Chiavari but they are not very frequent.

A taxi from the train station in Chiavari is 20€ if needed.

Local shop is quite basic but has nice fruit and vegetable and delivers shopping if needed!

There is a steep walk (20min downhill 30 min uphill) down to Zoagli which is on the sea and has a train station.

By train or by car you can visit in less than an hour the Cinque Terre, Portofino, Camogli, Sestri Levante, Genova... you will find loads of tourist information in the house and we'll be happy to advise you about the area.

Caterina is incredibly lovely. We felt happy staying here. Felt very much like a home. And all as expected, very pleasing. There's something in the way the home is positioned in relation to the garden and the the climb down to Zoagli that works really well, and continues to d…

We had a fantastic stay in this stunningly beautiful place and really didn't want to leave. The house is as beautiful as it looks in the photos and the view over the olive groves to the sea simply stunning. The walk to Zoagli and back is pretty strenuous, but that's Liguria for y…

Beautiful homely property in hills above Zoagli with amazing views and garden space. Only thing to be aware of is walk up from Zoagli while only taking 20 mins is an uphill hike on hot days. Massimo was friendly and helpful.

We spent 5 wonderful days here as part of our honeymoon. For us the location was absolutely perfect, perched in the hills with the coastline of Liguria stretching out to both the east and the west. The house is very tranquil and the gardens are lovely with fireflies flitting arou…

Amazing spot with super views across the bay. The small stone house is perched high above Ziogli. There are a maze of small stony paths which pick their way steeply up through the olive groves. Make sure you arrive in daylight, have good foot-ware and a light enough rucksack (a w…
