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

Un lieu tranquille dans une région exceptionnelle

  • 5 of 5

Passé deux semaines d'exception, aussi bien culturellement que pour la beauté des lieux.

Luciano nous a très bien accueillis et s'est investi tout au long de ces deux semaines pour que tout fonctionne à merveille.

Ses conseils de visites et de restaurants nous ont étés de grande utilité.

Lieux calme dans un cadre de verdure luxuriant.

" Super séjour "

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour à La Casa di Nonna Carlotta. La maison est spacieuse, propre et bien équipée, conforme à la description du site. L' extérieur est parfaitement entretenu, avec de belles fleurs, des arbres fruitiers et la piscine ! C' est un parfait point de départ pour visiter la région, au calme avec une vue qui est juste magnifique! Et le meilleur pour la fin ... notre hôte Luciano qui a été d'une gentillesse exceptionnelle ! Très discret et à la fois toujours présent pour répondre à nos questions et nous donner des conseils sur la région. Même nos filles de 2 ans et 5 ans l'ont adoré! Si un jour nous avons l'occasion de revenir dans la région, nous reviendrons chez Luciano sans hésitation.

Très agréable séjour chez Luciano

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans la villa de Luciano.

Grand appartement tout confort avec terrasse et vue magique !!

Nous avons été très bien accueillis et Luciano nous a parfaitement renseigné sur la visite des 5 Terres qui était l'objet de notre venue.

Piscine et jacuzzi en parfait état.

Je recommande vivement cet endroit pour les amoureux de la nature et de la marche.
