The apartment is just outside the seaside resort of Varazze on the Riviera di Ponente in Liguria, Italy's smallest region. You are just 40 minutes drive from the great port city of Genoa.
The apartment is in the lower part of Piani d'Invrea, an upmarket part of Varazze and has an amazing unimpeded view of the sea.
You can see Genoa from the terrace…and if you are very lucky Corsica. The colours of the sea and sky are always changing.
This is the Italian Riviera at its best - beautiful coastline, fabulous food and stunning mountains. Restaurants, beach clubs and shops are all within easy reach.
The flat is right next to the sea, perched above the seafront path the Lungomare Europa that runs between Varazze and Cogoleto.
As you can see in the images there is a communal garden that runs down from the flat to the seafront pathway. Just below there is a rocky cove where you can swim. Along the seafront pathway there are tiny coves if you fancy a dip in the sea (the saltiest in the Mediterranean) and this is a great place for walking, cycling and jogging. There is a salt water swimming pool club open to non-residents just five minutes walk from the flat.
There is everything you would expect in a fully furnished holiday flat including WiFi. The kitchen has an oven, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. There is a garage with children's toys, bikes and an extra fridge so you can stock up and just relax!
Casa Cabiria offers both a perfect romantic getaway and a great base for a family holiday. we have a gate that fits across the outside steps if you have young children and pets.
You can simply relax on the balcony and admire the view, take a dip in the sea and enjoy some of Italy's best cuisine.
But if you fancy exploring there is masses to see and do. Genoa is just 40 minutes by car and is bursting with palazzos and art treasures. The millionaire playground of Portofino is under an hour's drive and there are boat trips in summer to the Cinque Terre.
