In the midst of an olive grow only 3 km from the seaside
l Casone is an original Ligurian country house from the 18th century, tastefully restored by its French-German owner in spring 2006. The 2-storied building in the midst of olive groves with look over the valley and at a baroque church has two independant units: Piano Nobile 2-5 sleeps and Piano Sportivo 2-4 sleeps. Each unit has an independant terrace and a garden. The property is surrounded by 850 m2 of 'fasce' with typically Ligurian dry walls. Secular olive trees, various fruit-trees and a vegetable garden with a herbal corner are a balm for eyes, noses, ears and last but not least also for the stomach.
To reach Il Casone you have to leave your car at the mainroad and climb up on an old paved stonepath for about 3 minutes. This may be annoying at first sight, but you will see: it´s a stairway to heaven!
The unit piano nobile (50 m²) encloses a tastefully furnished kitchen-living room with natural stone walls and a chimney. Direct access on the southern terrace with pergola and look on the whole valley. The kitchen in ligurian style with marble and antique tiles is the right place to specialize on italian cuisine. In order not to loose the contact to the word satellite-TV with CNN and MTV for the youngsters. An inside stair leads to the first floor with a beautifully designed Pellet stove with open flame view that enlightens the antique furniture and paintings. A comfortable double bed, a doublebed divan and a singlebed divan await you for restoring nights after a full day of sightseeing. In addition a bathroom with a shower cabin and a bidet and a separate entrance that leads on a small eastern terrace with a lot of morning sun.
Just relax in a beautiful surrounding ...:
The country house ' Il Casone ' is ideal for a sporty-active vacation, but also for those who look for relax and contemplation. Due to the different located terraces everybody finds his personal place in the shadow or in the sun. Who wants to be active agriculturally, can work in the vegetable garden or in the orchard and can even try to harvest olives in order to get a very personal olive-oil. Cooking addicted people can prepare their own Pesto with in-house basil. Furthermore: crisp vegetables. At (rare!) rainy days the well equipped library lures with books in different languages. Feel free to feel at home in this enchanting 'coin' of Liguria is the wish of the house owner, a French German travel journalist.
... or discover hidden jewels
To the nature reserve Portofino, a paradise for hikers and mountain bikers or to the untouched Fontanabuona valley it is only a cat's jump. Bargain hunters of antiques have a look at the antique markets of Chiavari, Genoa and Sarzana. Designer labels with ridiculous low prices can be found in the Outlet of Serravalle (30 min by highway). Daily tours in the Cinque Terre and to the pearls of the gulf of La Spezia can be done comfortably by train or by ship. The culinary capital of Liguria, the small town of Recco, is only 10 minutes by car. And of course Genoa, in 2004 European cultural capital, with its fascinating Old Town and its Palazzi recently become UNESCO-world heritage. And why not explore Nizza and Cannes on the nearby Cote d´Azur. And don’t forget the Day-Spa in the the Hotel Excelsior Palace *****in Rapallo or in the Grand Hotel Miramare ***** in Santa Margherita.

San Pietro, a hamlet in the midst of olive groves near Rapallo: a Roman bridge, a baroque church, an olive mill, a pub with cigarette sales and pizzeria. Here the world is still in order, not least thanks to priest Don Beppe, the real shepherd of San Pietro. You hardly believe that you are only 1 km from the highway exit Rapallo (no noise!) and within 5 minutes by bus in the centre of Rapallo and at the wonderful seaside of the gulf of Tigullio with the beaches of Zoagli, Santa Margherita and Paraggi. For lovers of hiking old mule paths lead from ´Il Casone´ directly into the hills and just in front of he house into the park of Portofino, a paradise for hikers and mountainbikers. 40 minutes by train and you´re in the Cinque Terre. Children play soccer with the youngsters of the village on the football pitch beside the church, do horse riding or inlineskating in the skate park of Sestri Levante or visit Europe´s biggest aquarium and the pirate ship from Polanski´s film in Genoa. Other Activities: footing and golf on the nearby 18-hole green
