We wanted to create an ideal place for passing enjoyable afternoons in absolute relaxation, or as a base to go visiting and exploring, hamlets and cities, or places of art and characteristic ambient of this magnificent stretch of the Italian coast.

The space

An ideal place to spend pleasant afternoons relaxing or as a base to go visit and explore, villages and cities, or places of art and traditional setting of this beautiful stretch of Italian coastline.

The villa has a wonderful location between the town of Lavagna and the greenery of Santa Giulia. It is located on top of a hill overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio. To the west is Santa Margherita and Portofino, to the east Sestri Levante.

You will find the villa just 1 km from the sea and from Lavagna. The nearest airports are Genoa Cristoforo Colombo (50km) and Pisa Galileo (80km). Lavagna, full of shops for all your needs, bars and newsagents, is just a 15 minute walk away via a path that maybe a little steep at times, but will take you through some beautiful scenery. The property enjoys panoramic views of the hills and sea.

You can find interesting places to visit within 10 minutes or 2 hours drive on the Autostrada (motorway). Chiavari, being the closest at 10 minutes, then Sestri Levante, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Portofino, Genoa, 5 Terre, Pisa, Turin, Firenza.

Lavagna's train Station is 1 km from the villa, and the entrance to the motorway of Lavagna can be found just 3 km away.

Tiziana's house is a really fun and welcoming place! I highly recommend it for a large group. We enjoyed he grounds with pool, garden, pizza oven and fire pit even more than expected from the photos. Our group of 12 people prepped, cooked and dined very comfortably in the large ground floor spaces (played pool too!) The upstairs bedrooms were sunny and confortable (although quirky here and there). Our favorite spot was the upstairs terrace, with an exceptional view of the coast all the way to Portofino. Every corner in this house hides sculptures, knickknack from the past, souvenirs from distant lands. The location is also wonderful, outside the bustle of the town, but walking distance to everything. Lastly, everyone was sincerely very nice to us. Linda's check-in was very thorough - meeting Tiziana and Fabio was one of the nicest parts or our stay.

Beautiful, big house on a marvelous spot. Very well decorated and complete. All sleeping rooms with air conditioning which is highly recommended in summer time. Very friendly and helpful people. Only the beach and beach club they offer is not very interesting. But the area has a lot to offer (Cinque Terra by train, rent a boat and visit the nearby cities by boat, diving, nice small cities, good restaurants and many more)

Tiziana was a great host! Her place was stunning, even better than the pictures. There was plenty of space for the 12 people we had. Also, we helped us to setup a private chef our last night. Such a great experience!!

Very unique place! We had nice long weekend with friends of our family. Villa has enough space to host large companies (10-12 persons). All bedrooms with separate bathrooms, large living room with fire place and pool table. Tiziana was very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place
