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 Castiglione Chiavarese

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
