|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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.
We came on Holiday with our 18 yr old daughter as a graduation gift along with our German exchange student of 17. We had the most enjoyable time between visits to Monaco and Rome. The villa was perfect for both long and short visits to the two towns. We so enjoyed our accessibility to the walk/bike trails.
Those were among our most fond.
We chose October and it was so nice to have the towns, paths and shops to ourselves.
We highly recommend this villa with the magnificent 180 degree view.
If the view of the sea and palm trees does not bore you, this is the place to be! The decor, the amenities and the fully equipped kitchen make you feel right at home. The condo is clean and well maintained. This is a perfect location for a holiday. Rosie's description is 100% accurate. In the condo, ypu will find travel guide books on Liguria including an essential one she has authored. We would return, that's for sure!
This apartment was a perfect location for exploring all that the Italian Riviera and the Ligurian Coast have to offer. We felt welcomed and right at home. The balcony and sea views are unparalleled and the apartment is close to the motorway for exploring the area from Ventimiglia to Genoa. It is also convenient for other day trips by train, and we particularly enjoyed the day we spent at Cinque Terre.
This is a comfortable and well-equipped condo in a quiet area. We chose it for the location which is convenient to access major roads for our sightseeing plans and close to a town (Varazze) for shopping, as well as for the outstanding ocean view. We were happy to have Rosie's meticulous directions for finding the condo and the Coop grocery store as well as for the other information sent to us.
We felt welcome in this comfortable traditional apartment with high ceilings, large open window doors and a splendid 180 degrees view over the sea from the balcony. The apartment is located at the top floor of a two level building. The kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom simple, but sufficient. You can park your car nearby (50 meters) at the side of a quiet road. We had relaxed walks along the beautiful rocky and sometimes sandy beaches on a pathway, right in front of the apartment (accessible via a staircase through the private communal garden). More challenging walks are possible nearby in the mountains. You can start right from the apartment or after a few minutes’ drive by car. Varazze is a small city with some fine restaurants, which we discovered thanks to the owners’ friendly and useful tips. Liguria has plenty of other places to visit, like the small village of Noli and the city of Genova with its large medieval center. Thank you for a wonderful week!
Den einzigen Kritikpunkt den ich habe ist, dass es schwer ist an die Promenade zu kommen. Da der direkte Abgang recht steil ist. Für Kinderwägen und gebrechliche Personen nicht zu empfelen. Ansonsten muss man mit dem Auto ein kleines Stückchen fahren bzw einen anderen weg zur Promenade laufen.
Danke Rosi für den schönen Urlaub
