Two parents, three teenagers and two grandparents..... and there was plenty of room for us all. The owner was easy to communicate with before our arrival, as was Angelica, who looks after the house. She met us on arrival and gave us the grand tour of the historical building. She was very helpful during the week and answered any questions we had. The house is immaculately clean, the beds are incredibly comfortable and the views from the terrace are amazing. We all had fun using the traditional pizza oven one evening - the kitchen got very hot! The main road is about 10-15 minutes away by car and once you're there, there's plenty of places to visit should you wish. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Grazie mille!

The apartment is spacious and is in a quiet area.The view of the sea and the hills and the town from the lounge and the large terrace is so good. It is really worth the walk up the steep hill - and a good way of feeling virtuous that you have at least done a bit of exercise after all those pizzas with Gorgonzola! DOnatella and her son very kindly picked us up from the train station on arrival and also took us back to the station when we left. We liked Sestri very much - particularly the Bay of Silence beach and the clear sea which was certainly warm enough for swimming every day. We would definitely recommend staying here and plan to come back to Sestri.
