About the property

Country house, wide sea view on the Gulf of Tigullio, green space

Casa Zefira is a characteristic and typical Genoese country house, located in the hamlet of Campodonico, halfway up the hill above Chiavari and close to the village of Sant'Andrea di Rovereto and the town of Zoagli.

Cesare, the owner, has always dedicated himself to Casa Zefira with so much energy and passion, personally taking care of the recent renovation,

maintaining the construction characteristics of stone walls, exposed wood and slates, preserving the original environments but adding the modernity of the necessary services in accordance with tradition.

The house is on two floors:

on the ground floor, with an independent entrance, there is a large room furnished with a double bed, a large wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a pellet stove. Also on this floor is the bathroom with tub / shower, sink and toilet with bidet.

An internal staircase connects the ground floor to the first floor, also with an independent entrance from the garden.

Here in a large living room there is a dining / living room, a kitchenette and a fireplace, a large wooden table, a nice cupboard, and a sideboard.

Satellite TV and free Wi-Fi available for guests.

The kitchenette is equipped with a sink and wall units, gas cooker with 4 burners, electric oven, microwave, filter coffee machine, moka coffee maker, washing machine, iron and ironing board.

The house is very comfortable, naturally cool in the summer and thanks to its south-facing sea and mild climate, warm in winter.

The garden that surrounds it, offers the possibility of an outside livable opening, for pleasant moments of relaxation "en plein air" with the availability of garden equipment for outdoor dining (barbecue, pergola, table with wooden benches,), for solar baths (sunbeds, hammock, parasol, outdoor shower) and for "ancient" play activities (game of petanque).

In a dominant position, it has a free and open view of the sea that sweeps over the entire Gulf of Tigullio, from Portofino to Sestri Levante.

Its location at a short distance from the sea (5 km approx.) And near the valleys of the eastern Ligurian hinterland, makes it an ideal place to stay for excursions and adventures on the coast and in the green valleys of the Ligurian Apennines.

In addition, its location allows you to discover and know the renowned coastal towns of the Gulf of Tigullio: the first to meet east is Chiavari (5 km) with its history and its traditions, follows Lavagna and the village of Cavi di Blackboard with its famous beach (7 km). The splendid Sestri Levante (10 km) and its two seas: the bay of silence and the gulf of fairy tales. Sestri Levante is internationally renowned for its cultural events, the liveliness of the city "movida", and the many entertainment proposals throughout the year (artisan markets, musical concerts). One can not fail to mention the MUSEUM SYSTEM OF SESTRI LEVANTE AND CASTIGLIONE CHIAVARESE:

"Two exhibition poles, designed to offer the visitor a rich and articulated narration of the history of the Tigullio territory and the Sestri Levante valleys: the Sestri Levante Pole with the Archaeological Section and the City Museum at Palazzo Fascie and the Castiglione Pole Chiavarese with the archeo-mining museum in the former school of Masso, the prehistoric outdoor mine, the nineteenth-century mine XX Settembre "

Towards the west you can get to know renowned places by first meeting Zoagli, a delightful town famous for the ancient art of weaving velvets, then Rapallo with the famous castle and the Carlo Riva marina, then Santa Margherita Ligure, the Pearl of Tigullio, famous for being frequented by the international jet set and for its exclusive boutiques and clubs, and finally arrive in Portofino, a small and characteristic seaside village, today a world-famous tourist destination.

It is also an excellent starting point for longer trips to the famous resorts of the La Spezia coast: the towns of Moneglia, Deiva, Framura, Bonassola and the villages of the marvelous Cinque Terre are easily reachable by land and / or sea. UNESCO) and then reach the city of La Spezia, and continue to Lerici and beyond in the Tuscan Versilia with its famous seaside resorts (Forte dei Marmi, etc.) and cultural (Pietrasanta etc.).

Genoa with its "History", its beauties and with its Historical Center of world fame (UNESCO heritage), can be reached by car but also by rail from the coastline in about 1 hour: there you can relive the ancient history of the Ancient Maritime Republic, discover its monuments, visit its museums and participate in its countless cultural events in the historic buildings of the center.

The green hinterland, for those who want a pleasant and naturalistic escape, offers countless possibilities for leisure, sport, adventure and relaxation, as well as various itineraries for hiking and trekking.

The access road to Casa Zefira, through a short path, a typical "creuza" slightly uphill that crosses the small village of Campodonico, allows you to immediately immerse yourself in the beauty of the typical local landscape and in the popular tradition of the place, and to enjoy an extraordinary view of the Gulf of Tigullio.

You can easily move up to Chiavari, which is perhaps the most characteristic city of the entire Gulf of Tigullio and dominates with its central position.

It is the city of the "carruggi", ancient streets of the historical center, and of the arcades; of the old taverns and "farinotti", shops selling farinata and other typical Ligurian products, a sort of old-fashioned fast food, the famous "Chiavarine" chairs are the real jewel of Made in Italy design.

In its great and spectacular historical center you can immerse yourself in the most genuine ligurianism ....

In addition, Chiavari offers all necessary and essential services (markets, shopping centers, post offices, banks, hospitals, restaurants, pizzerias, cinemas, theaters), and from here you can easily reach by car, bus, train all the localities of the coast and 'hinterland; but also from Casa Zefira, along the ancient marked and marked paths that still unite the various riverside resorts, you can walk along ancient pedestrian and mule tracks: like the Via dei Mulini - which goes straight from Campodonico to Chiavari, or the Monte ring Telegraph - which unites the surrounding towns in the hills. But from here you can also connect to other routes of the Ligurian Mountains, with pedestrian routes of medium and long distance.

Casa Zefira can be reached by arriving and parking the car at the end of the road that ends in Frazione Campodonico, and then continuing on foot along 2 alternative pedestrian paths. The first one you meet is the most direct route, about 100 meters on a characteristic "creuza" (path) in stone and identified by the white and red trail sign of the Monte Telegrafo ring. The second, about 150 meters, continues straight past the end of the driveway, crosses the lower part of the village, then up along a "creuza" (path) panoramic and surrounded by vegetable gardens, orchards and gardens, towards Casa Zefira.

Casa Zefira is the ideal stay for all those who love peace and relaxation but with the possibility of being able to

choose between a day at the beach or a nice trekking route or a full cultural immersion and much more ...

The fraction is served by a bus service (Bus No. 10) that starting from the Chiavari station they terminate in Campodonico.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très très bien accueillis par Gabriella qui n'a pas hésitée à nous faire découvrir les viennoiseries typiquement italiennes et à nous partager des adresses.

La maison est conforme à la description [avec tous les équipements nécessaires et en quantité (serviettes, vaiselles, draps,...] et un jardin bien ombragé avec une très belle vue sur le mer (très agréable à chaque repas).

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour avec de belles balades et de beaux panoramas : les 5 terres, Portofino, Sestri Levante,...

Toutefois, cette maison ne convient pas aux personnes avec enfants en bas âges ou à mobilité réduite. En effet, il y a pas mal de marches à monter, les voitures ne pouvant y accéder.

Seul défaut les moustiques la nuit... Mais une solution est en cours par Gabriella.
