Our villa is set between hills and sea and overlooks the small town of Cavi di Lavagna, where you can find bars, restaurants and shops. Along the coastline, at a few kilometres of distance between them, lie several small towns where the local seafood and natural products of the lush inland are served in the restaurant. Because of the privileged position of our villa, you can reach many interesting places in a short time. In the West, a gorgeous scenic road leads to Portofino, worldwide famous for its setting, its steep cliff high up above the sea. In the Mount of Portofino it’s worth visiting the beautiful San Fruttuoso - that can be reached by boat or trekking on its many paths - its medieval abbey and marine sanctuary, where you can go snorkelling and scuba diving.A few kilometers away, you’ll reach the enchanting Camogli, with its small fishing village, and Recco, internationally known for its “focaccia al formaggio”, a kind of cheese pie. A 30 kilometers you’ll find Genoa – its squares, churches, aquarium and old docks, il “Porto Antico”, are worth a visit as well as the little train that from Casella climbs on the mountain slopes of Appennino Ligure among scenic views. In the East, Sestri Levante will greet you with its charming “Baia del Silenzio”, a secluded bay. Cinque Terre are five villages high up above the sea, linked by footpaths, that can be reached also by train. You can cover the distance between them on foot, taking in the enchantment of every single village. Other places to see in the same area are Lerici and Portovenere.At 120 kilometers from our place li

Superb Italian Riviera getaway
This place is awesome! Magic views, spacious, clean and stylish accomodation! We loved the peaceful outlook and location. The host was very helpful and welcoming and was quick to answer any questions. The living area and kitchen are well equipped and the bedrooms on level 1 and 2 are gorgeous. There is a lift so easy to take luggage inside, plus there is a lock up garage if you hire a car. It’s easy to catch the train or ferry to Cinque Terre or Portofino, (or drive). Also loved the spa with a view! We will definitely be returning.
Fantastic house -- Fantastic host
The house is situated nicely between Lavagna and Sestri Levante. The home is fantastic, beautiful with a magnificent view of the sea. The host, Vincenzo, is one of the nicest,most accommodating gentlemen I have ever met. We started calling him Saint Vincenzo by the end of the week. The stay here could not have been better.
The pictures on the VRBO website are not photoshopped or shot from an angle to make it look better. This place is even more beautiful than the photos show. I highly recommend it.
A beautiful gem
The villa is beautiful, has lots of features that you wouldn't expect. Has a lift to take you to bedrooms, as my son said, it feels posh. Also a fridge that makes ice by itself :)) (we don't need ice in England, so it was a surprise, something that we used a lot. Decorated with a good sense of style. Very clean and well maintained. Jacuzzi is the pick of the villa, where you can relax and enjoy the views. Vincenzo always makes sure you don't have any problems and helps a lot.
Cinque Terre is a must to see.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!
The house is comfortable and beautiful and Vincenzo is the perfect host. He is always around to solve problems (e.g.parking tickets!) - available but never intrusive. He organized a cooking workshop for us, which was an absolute highlight. One thing to bear in mind,however, is that it would not be easy to stay there and explore the beautiful surroundings without a car.
Otherwise, full marks for a wonderful holiday - in our case for a family reunion!

Amazing and relaxing!
From the moment we decided on Cavi de Lavagna and Vincenzo’s beautiful Villa for our family vacation, everything was taken care of by Vincenzo. He was attentive and always had the answers to our many questions as we were planning the trip. He went over and beyond making the two weeks perfect for us. The Villa is perfect for any number of people and located within walking distance to the town. Great restaurants and wonderful people that were friendly and helpful.
The views were spectacular and I didn’t want to come home. We highly recommend the Villa and I will book another vacation there in the future.
A special thank you to Vincenzo and his loving family.

Lots of space, great views, very well equipped. Vincenzo lives in the flat downstairs and was very friendly and helpful to us throughout our stay. We were only two people but it would be a great house for a large group.
Take the Highway A-12(Genova-Livorno),take the exit for Sestri Levante,and follow directions for Cavi di Lavagna (Cavi borgo).Ask for panoramic road (Via della Pineta) at No....
There are nearby seafood restaurant and local cuisine, there are boats for portofino, San Fruttuoso and Cinque Terre.
