About the property


The House:

Being able to stay in an independent single house is not so easy in Genoa because all the solutions are apartments.

If you choose Villa Ornella you will experience the thrill of living in an independent house, the house is an old rustic restored area with wooden beams, two fireplaces, marble floors and unique (unique) front doors.

Villa Ornella has a beautiful sea view, a garden with a large terrace with tables and barbeque.

Villa Ornella is composed of:

Ground floor

1) One input

2) a ground floor room with a sofa bed for two people.

3) a large sitting room with flat tv, fireplace, sofa, and two tables for dining / dining.

4) a kitchen with oven, microwave, kettle, sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, waffle coffee maker Nespresso

5) a bathroom with shower, bidet, toilet, washbasin.

6) a separate area with washing machine

7) access to the garden


8) bedroom with two single beds

9) bedroom with double bed

10) bedroom with two single beds and fireplace

11) bathroom with bathtub, bidet, toelet, washbasin

12) access to the garden.

Villa Ornella is ideal for up to 8 people, for families and groups of friends who want to enjoy a seaside holiday in complete relaxation, without sacrificing the comforts of the city. Enjoy a walk through the woods of Monte Fasce or take a trip to the beaches of the marvelous Genoa Riviera. Or go to visit Europe's largest historic center and the largest aquarium in Europe ..

Experience the authenticity of living in one of the oldest buildings in the area, finely restored with a wood-beamed fireplace, arderian staircase and terracotta flooring. It looks like an ancient mountain chalet.


It is on the hill of Genoa, with breathtaking views, in one of the most green areas and trees of Genoa, strategically located about 20 minutes by car from the center and 13 minutes from the beaches of Genoa.

Car park:

Along the street near the houses you can park for free (instead in other areas of Genoa you pay 2,5 euros !!!), And it is usually easy to find parking.

Transportation / Public Transportation / Bus:

If you do not want to use the car a few meters from the house there is the bus stop. Depending on the bus you take you can go downtown or to the beaches.

I still recommend the car to be independent of public transport and to visit other areas around Genoa.

Just a few meters from the house there is the bus stop, where you can reach in about 25 minutes the center (Brignole Station) from where you can walk / bus to the Nautical Exhibition and visit the historic center.

Or from Brignole Train Station you can take local trains to reach the surroundings of Genoa (eg 5 Terre, Camogli, Santa Margherita, Sestri Levante). By bus it is also possible to reach some beaches in Genoa.


Free WIFI, FlatTV, Refrigerator, Microwave,

Roonde, capsule coffee machine, water kettle, and washing machine. Barbeque and outdoor table.

You will have included: final cleaning, linen and towels, unlimited internet access, all consumables such as electricity, gas, water, etc.


Well-behaved pets are welcome.

Dining / Bar / Supermarkets / Restaurants:

There is a small Oratory Cafeteria just above the house on foot where you can have breakfast and buy small things of necessity such as milk, water, bread, wine etc.

Also near by the road is a Bar Pizzeria Paisciun Bar where you can eat something. Not always open check the times.

If you have to do the important shopping expenses, take the bus and get off at the bus stop in via Tanini / Borgoratti: Carrefour express (a supermarket), bar, tobacconist, pharmacy, ice cream shop, butcher etc.

Also in Via Tanini you find an outing pizzeria.

If you want to make a hike with the car, breathtaking, the road is very narrow with bends but you arrive at the top of Mount Fasce where you will find beyond a fantastic panorama the old Liberal Tavern where you will eat. Always check the times before leaving. About 4.4 km from the house, 30 minutes by car. Keep in mind that the road is very narrow, and often it is important to give precedence. Check before leaving if the road is open for cars.


You will be welcomed by myself or a person in charge of check-in and show you the apartment and if necessary give you information about the area.

Check in / check out:

Check-in time is generally flexible from 13.00 hours to allow for cleaning, but if you want to come first to luggage you can ask for it.

Check out time is 10am, but if we do not have another arrival the same day, we will be happy to meet your needs.

House Rules:

This accommodation is not suitable for children under the age of 6 or for people with mobility problems.

It is forbidden to organize parties / events

No smoking inside, but allowed outside in the garden

The Neighborhood The area:

The house is located in Genoa in the beautiful neighborhood of Appearance, a green area and a beautiful panorama on the breathtaking sea, but very convenient because it is located in a strategic point to the center and to the other beauties of Genoa.

In fact, the center of Genoa (Piazza della Vittoria where there is ample parking for a fee) is about 20 minutes by car. Also within walking distance of the house there is a bus stop that allows you to reach the center (Brignole Railway Station or Piazza de Ferrari depending on the bus) in about 25 minutes.

The most important newspaper in Genoa (Il SecoloXIX) on November 2, 2004 dedicated to the district "Appearance" an article titled:

"Apparition, a paradise suddenly, here it is all fascinating, but it's best not to know too much about this place."

Real estate agents say of Appearance where the houses are colorful, renovated and decorated, decorated, carved from gardens, terraces, pergolas: "A LITTLE EASY! ...

In the evening it is a paradise, breathtaking view, clean air, large garden where you can arrange beautiful barbecue on the way back from the sea or visit the city.

Near the house you can walk to the footpaths for walks in the meadows and in the forests of the surroundings, or bike rides if you are strong enough to overcome the climbs of Monte Fasce.

Typical Local Products (Oil):

There is also immediately after the Paisciun trattoria a Frantoio Cooperative where they produce olive oil, made with Apples' Olives, usually Open Tuesdays and Saturdays from 16:30 to 19:00. Check timetables that may change during the year.

Religion / Churches:

There is also a church that can be walked up the road.

What makes this villa unique

If you want to experience a different experience than the usual apartment, try to live in an independent and charming home like this very old house ("Villa Ornella") finely restored. Imagine how the peasants lived in this place in the 1700s. The neighborhood of Genoa where the house is located is called "Appearance" and is fantastic on the hill in the green, Genoa domains, with a breathtaking sea view. In the same way you are comfortable in the center and the beaches you can reach in 15/20 minutes by car. Or if you prefer near the house you will find a bus stop to move you into the city without a car.

Really a special place!

Точно так же шесть удобно до центра города и пляжей, которые вы можете достичь в 15/20 минут на машине.

Lovely home but a treacherous drive up to it!

  • 3 of 5

The house is very nice and clean on the inside. The views looking over Genoa are outstanding. We had excellent communication with the owner although he had someone else do the check-in (more on that later). The loss of 2 stars is due to the following. First - the drive, parking and location. It is an extremely winding and narrow road where cars park on both sides and it is extraordinarily busy with cars and buses all the time. From my bio, you can see we have driven all over Mexico, Central & South America and Italy and this was one of the worst we have ever done. So, if you are in the least bit uncomfortable with the aggressive driving of Italians - this will be a challenge for you. And yes, a car is a necessity. The house is situated at one of the turns on this busy street which makes parking a hit or miss situation. Only one time could we park across the street from the house. The location also contributes to a lot of traffic noise, if you keep the doors open. The second star loss was for the preparation for guests. While the house itself was clean and comfortable, the outside looked as though it had not been swept or cleaned in ages. The tables, chairs, barbeque etc were not usable unless we were prepared to spend a few hours cleaning first. While we were told in several emails not to be late checking in, the person checking us in was 30 minutes late, so the house was shuttered and not aired when we got there. Again, the interior of the house is nice but there are several downsides, some of which are permanent.
