We met and married in 1992, and our family grew with the adoption of our daughter Pushpa in India in 1999 and our son Mario in Colombia in 2004. Shortly afterwards Lilly, an affectionate mongrel dog came, she fllls us and oue guests with Kisses. In our house of Velva we cultivate the vegetable garden and we take care of the garden, we enjoy the quiet country life and, after years of working in the office, we consider tourist hospitality not only our new bussines but our passion

LUCIANO PONZUOLI purchased this apartment in 2008

Why LUCIANO PONZUOLI chose Genova province

At the "festival of minestrone" our friend Mary Rose, made us discover Velva with its medieval village and its authentic inhabitants: we were fascinated. In a small house we spent a few summers in freedom and quietness with our children Pushpa and Mario. We put down roots by buying agricultural rustic, renovated with passion, even to share many pleasures and comforts that offers with our guests.

Even today we get exited for the sunsets over Ligurian Sea, our guest called them "touching"

What makes this apartment unique

in addition to our desserts,our welcome includes the tourist information on the surrounding area.

You could taste our garden produces and our preserves and have directions to buy typical products (oil, wine, ..) and organic food (cheese and honey of Vara Downhill).

In afternoons and evenings with Giancarla and Luciano you could organize small courses to make bread or pizza in a wood oven, the pesto sauce, or characteristic savory fritters and other local specialties

Wonderful spot!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the pool and hot tub and the location was just beautiful. The kitchen doesn't have any extras so if you are planning to cook be sure to buy everything you will need including salt and pepper, cooking oil, soap for dishwasher, etc. We would definitely visit again! Grazie!

Excellente semaine en Ligurie

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans cette location située au calme, à une quinzaine de kilomètres de Sestri Levante, sur les hauteurs. La description est conforme à la réalité : chambres spacieuses, chacune ayant sa salle de bains avec douche, un espace à vivre confortable les séparant. Il y a une terrasse pour ceux qui souhaitent prendre leur repas, un parking spacieux ( 4 voitures y étaient garées sans problème lors de notre séjour), un barbecue, un espace commun si vous voulez prendre vos repas en commun avec d'autres personnes, un espace de jeux, un terrain de pétanque, ... La piscine et le spa sont très agréables après une journée de visite ou si l'on souhaite passer la journée tranquillement à l'appartement. C'est aussi un point de départ très pratique pour les visites. Nous avons fait uniquement la côte, de Portofino à Porto Venere en passant par les Cinque Terre mais l'autoroute n'est qu'à une quinzaine de kilomètre donc on peut aller rapidement à Genes au nord ou à Pise au sud.

Enfin, il y a Luciano, le propriétaire. Si vous avez un problème, si vous voulez savoir ce qu'il faut absolument visiter, si vous voulez savoir où vous garer facilement et gratuitement, où faire vos courses... Luciano est là (tout en étant discret). Ses conseils sont toujours bons et c'est en plus quelqu'un de très charmant et à l'écoute. Merci Luciano pour cette belle semaine !!

Séjour réalisé du 19 au 25 aout 2017 par 2 adultes et 2 enfants (8 et 14 ans)

Schönes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus mit netten Vermietern. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig und es nichts von dem Trubel um Cinque Terre herum zu spüren. Wir haben die Ruhe und die tolle Aussicht am Abend genossen. Unsere Kinder (11 und 14) kamen durch den schönen Pool und den Whirlpool auch voll auf ihre Kosten. Die Ferienwohnung ist stil- und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es fehlt an nichts. Wir können dieses Ziel nur weiterempfehlen.
