We recently stayed 7 nights in the Panorama apartment, and it was a wonderful location. Elise made us feel at home and was so helpful with her local knowledge. We enjoyed visiting with her and walking through her lovely grounds. The views were outstanding. We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed spending time in Chiavari. The Saturday market day in the town square was a highlight. The walk along the seafront promenade was a beautiful. We enjoyed several meals in that area. We had day trips to the Cinque Terre and also took the ferry boat from Rapallo to Portofino. So much fun!
A Month in Paradise!
We were privileged to spend a month at Villa della Rose, an experience set apart from our many previous wonderful vacation rentals, because Elisa and her beautiful Golden Retriever Oni made us feel welcome and at home as if we were family. The villa was beyond our expectations and even more beautiful than the photos represent. Spacious, immaculately clean and maintained, with three verandahs offering amazing views of the sea and surrounding mountains. Below the villa is the olive grove, luxuriant with fruit trees as well as olive trees and many other beautiful plants. The location could not be better, situated midway between Genoa and La Spezia with easy access to the Cinque Terre, Portofino, and all the other lovely seaside villages. Elisa offers a parking space for the majority of clients who choose to drive, but it is also possible to visit the area easily with bus service directly in front of the villa connecting to the train station a short distance away in Chiavari. That being said, the truly greatest pleasure of our visit was our lovely host, Elisa. She welcomed us with open arms upon arrival and each time we stopped to visit her, she was genuinely happy to see us and treated us with the warmest of hospitality. She is a fount of knowledge of the surrounding area and happily shared her knowledge of restaurants, art and architecture, music, and local culture. Please book Elisa's property with utmost confidence, you will not be disappointed!
Lovely location, wonderful villa
Casa Limoni is a beautiful, recently built villa with every modern convenience. Spotlessly clean. We were made very welcome and benefitted from our host's local knowledge. It's very well placed for visiting the Cinque Terre and Portofino. The local town, Chiavari is very interesting with a lovely botanical garden and local train service. The local pizzeria, La Cava, is a large very family friendly restaurant which sells the largest pizzas I've ever seen. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Leivi and would definitely recommend it. Plenty of walks and places to visit but also a lovely garden to relax in.
We had a wonderful time at Elisa's place. The apartment was equipped with everything we could need, (including very fast WiFi-a big hit with our 3 teenage girls!) and the garden and views were amazing. We had fresh eggs, vegetables, honey, and olive oil available from a neighbouring farm. But best of all was Elisa-she welcomed us with open arms, recommended wonderful places to eat, provided bikes and maps and even invited us along to a great party! We enjoying travelling to the beaches along the coast and had a brilliant holiday
family vacation-wonderful place
We stayed at Elisa's place for 4 days with 4 adults and 2 children. The accomidations are wonderful and bueatiful. There are great views of the Italian coast and surrounding countryside from the verandas. We enjoyed farm fresh eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, olive oil, and wine grown in the garden or from a nearby farm. It is centrally located to all of the great attractions, and Elisa supplied us with so much information and literature for all the places we wanted to see. The best part was Elisa. What a terrific host and a pleasant person. I would recommend this place to anyone, and we can't wait to stay there again.
Wonderful Place to Stay!!!
If you are traveling in this part of Italy, staying at Elisa's place is a MUST! Not only is her home spectacular, equipped with everything you need, extremely clean with breathtaking views, but she is so delightful and helpful, that you will want to just hang out with her and Oni!
We are a family of four (two kids ages 9 and 6) who were traveling in France and Italy along with my Aunt and Uncle. We all stayed comfortably in Elisa's place. She spent lots of time telling us where to go, where to eat, where to shop, etc.. Her extensive knowledge of the area and wonderful advice really made our trip so special.
In addition, we came at the right time as her grandson, Leone was in town and was a fantastic baby-sitter for my children. They still talk about hanging out with him and of course playing with Oni.
You will not regret staying in Leivi as is so conveniently located to so many wonderful places to explore. The town of Leivi also gives you a real feel of what living in Italy would be like. We cannot express how pleased we were with out stay and we will be back next Summer!
The Villa is located in a quiet area 10 min. with car from the tourist town of Chiavari where various recreational activities are held concerts, dances, theatrical performances.
