Casa Bianca is part of a wine and olive oil estate which has just 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.
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 some of our wine and 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.
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.
Genoa is 40 kms west where you can explore the world famous Aquarium, the ancient noble palaces and art galleries, visit the theatre and shops. Florence and Pisa and Lucca are a few hours away by car 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!
Chiavari, Liguria, Italy, Europe (40 Kms East from Genoa/ Portofino,Cinque Terre Nearby) -- Casa Bianca is only 3 kms from the centre of Chiavari which is a beautiful old Ligurian City with excellent bars and restaurants in every square and arcaded street. 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 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.
