Chiavari villa description

Casa Bianca is part of a wine and olive oil estate (see Casa Bosco Listing Number 132479) which has been lovingly restored and refurbished by its owners. Casa Bianca now offers 4 double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large sitting room with a sofa bed, entrance hall with a log fire (olive logs provided) making 180 square meters and sleeping max 10 people. Casa Bianca's cool and light internal space is set like a jewel in gentle Olive Groves with our vineyards below the house, and vegetable gardens and fruit trees all around, with jasmine, mimosa, roses and masses of wild flowers all in their season.

Separate fully fitted kitchen and dining area - all downstairs rooms opening through French doors onto terraces and gardens. Three double bedrooms upstairs (2 opening onto large terrace with wonderful views of ancient olive groves and the little Church on the hill) Two bathrooms upstairs (1 with shower and 1 with bathtub). Downstairs bedroom opening onto garden, and shower bathroom.

Off the fully modernized kitchen is a terrace for al fresco dining under a weeping willow tree and in front of the house a vine covered pergola where you can admire the sunny and shady spots in this tranquil old olive grove and the pine and chestnut woods. We will give you FREE our Estate Produced red and white wines and extra virgin olive oil to help you unwind after a long day at the beach or walking the Cinque Terre or shopping in Chiavari Market for antiques or the superb local specialty food shops.

Casa Bianca is only 1/4 mile from the centre of Chiavari which is a beautiful old Ligurian City with excellent bars and restaurants in every square and arcaded shopping streets. A footpath will take you down to the center in 15 minutes where you will find the Cathedral and several old churches and villas and the train station.

Take a train to the Cinque Terre and walk back along the world famous Lovers' trail set above the sparkling blue sea, passing through the ancient vineyards on the precipitous walled terraces. Stop for a swim or a leisurely lunch and enjoy the local wines. In the middle of Tigullio Bay which stretches from Portofino to Sestri Levante, Chiavari is perfectly placed for making trips to Portofino with its exquisite little yacht harbour where you can join the beautiful people in a bar for a Bellini cocktail or sit on the sea wall with an ice and watch the world go by.

Also near is Santa Margherita, a very smart resort with famous fish market and yacht marina, Rapallo a quaint old seaside town, and Zoagli where the sea laps the town square and time stands still. Sestri Levante is 5 kms the other way, an elegant old village on the sea with the romantic sandy Bay of Silence one side and the long promenade on the Bay of Tigullio on the other. Or stay in Chiavari and walk along the wood boardwalk with its gardens and fountains and safe and clean gravel and rock beaches where the children can swim, admire the marina, or sit in a seaside bar and watch the sun set behind Portofino mountain.

Hike less frequented marked trails round Portofino to Rapallo, Leivi, from Ri Alto and the villa, many described in detail by a guest with information at the house for guidance or visit Tourist Information Office or see online walking guides for Chiavari, Liguria

Genoa is 20 miles west where you can explore the world famous Aquarium, the ancient noble palaces and art galleries, visit the theater and shops. Florence and Pisa and Lucca, Milan's Duomo and La Scala Opera,Leonardo's Last Supper etc are a few hours away by car or train and can be explored in a day trip from Chiavari.

There is so much to do and see that a week here is not enough but you can do what many of our guests do - come back again!
