“Wonderful Villa with Stunning Sea Views”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

La Nave is in a perfect position, at the top of a hill, with stunning sea views of Chiavari, Sestri Levante and Portofino. We had a fabulous holiday with our grown up son and daughter and loved the spacious villa as soon as we stepped through the door. The booking process through Sandra was excellent, as were the arrangements for the key pick up, from their delightful Italian neighbour. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for all of our needs, with the most amazing views from the terraces off the master bedroom, living area and roof top. Although La Nave is at the top of a hill, the walk down using the cobbled footpath to the market area in Chiavari, is only 8 minutes and we regularly walked down to pick up fresh vegetables, salad and fruit. The closest supermarket is just before the market area and the beach takes a further 5 minutes to walk to. The area was perfect for us and we sampled the local Ligurian dishes and loved the little cafes and bars, both on the sea front and in the old historical centre. The covered shopping arcades in the old town of Chiavari were really pretty and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The journey from Genoa airport, in our hire car took us 40 minutes and Chiavari was a perfect location, for visiting the stunningly beautiful Ligurian coastline. We loved the boat trip from Santa Margherita to San Fruttuoso and Portofino and also explored the lovely Sestri Levante and Cinque Terre, making the journey on the train from Chiavari to Monterosso, the first small town forming part of the Cinque Terre. We would highly recommend La Nave- we loved the villa and the surrounding area and hope to return very soon. With many thanks Rosemary

“Very comfortable home with stunning views of Ligurian coast”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We travelled as Grandparents with a Daughter and Grandson. We spent our week in this very comfortable home, set on four floors from basement secured garage to spacious roof terrace. An elevator is available. The views from Portofino in the north to Sestri Levante in the south were stunning. Walking distance to the "centro" for the railway station and eateries and although its uphill on return, you can get a cab of course. Very comfortable bedrooms and well equipped bathrooms. We really enjoyed our time here in "La Nave"

“Wow...wow...wow”

person found this review helpful

I am not long back from a fantastic trip to this beautiful part of Italy. La Nave...our base for the trip, was situated on the top of a hill with the most spectacular views of Chiavari all around. The villa itself has the wow factor as you approach and does not disappoint once inside. The spacious, tastefully furnished living/dining area with views to die for, opens out onto a terrace which does make you feel like you are standing on the prow of a ship! There is also a large roof terrace which offers space to dine al fresco and sunbathe whilst taking in the scenery.
All four bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped and all the bathrooms are very luxurious. Underground secure parking was also a bonus with a lift up to the living areas.
Chiavari itself is a vibrant, bustling town with lots of character. ..totally unspoilt ...with a great variety of shops, cafés and restaurants. We visited the beautiful Portofino and several other little towns along this picturesque stretch of Lagurian coastline. We dined in some amazing restaurants and sampled some of the local produce and wine on offer...and were impressed all round!!
La Nave was a wonderful base to return to after our adventures and we will definately be back!!

“Fantastic vacation in a very positive atmosphere”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

This wonderful villa "La Nave" is simply fantastic! In a peaceful area surrounded by olive trees and with unparalleled view from Portofino bay to Sestri Levante and Le Cinque terre, this is a very elegant house, very clean, tastefully furnished and equipped with every comfort. We won't forget our romantic dinner on the large terrace, smelling the perfume of the sea and of the garden's flowers. We had a lovely holiday in Chiavari breathing the positive atmosphere of this house, enjoying the shopping and visiting close and nice locations such as Bonassola beach and Santa Margherita. We are planning to come back very soon.

“Lovely long weekend”
Reviewed May 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a super girls' weekend in Chiavari. A stunning contemporary designer house on the hill with superb balconies and fantastic sea, town and hillside views. Spacious and bright interior with a peaceful and relaxing Italian ambiance. Very comfortable clean bedrooms and bathrooms. For those who like walking, there is a relatively short (although steep) and pleasant walk to the lovely town of Chiavari with great shops, restaurants and marina. Lovely to sit outside with a delicious coffee (or a few glasses of Prosecco!) Perfect for a long weekend away with friends or family, or even a long-term stay to have time to discover and explore the beautiful surrounding areas and towns along the coast. Definitely worth a visit!

“Fantastic girly weekend!”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

I came to stay at La Nave with three girlfriends last October and we had a wonderful stay. The house is really well equipped and has the most wonderful views you could wish for. Chiavari is a great spot for a girly weekend with lots of great bars and restaurants within easy reach and of course the beach. We went to magical Portofino for aperitivi - fab to sit and chat while the sun went down. Genoa airport is only about 40 mins away and we found La Nave easily. Great to have a secure garage too. It would be great for families as the beach is so close. I will definitely be back!

“A little slice of HEAVEN!”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We got a fantastic surprise when we got to the villa - it was even better than it looked in the photos! It is architect designed and reminded me of a ship's prow. There are views of the sea from every window and the roof terrace is fantastic. Go up there for breakfast and to watch the sunset. We were lucky enough to get a little electric storm and we could actually see lightning forks over the sea. The house is really comfortable - in fact it is luxurious and it has everything you need in the bathrooms and kitchen. It suited us really well because we were a group of friends so we had lots of personal space as well as communal space. The town is really cute with lots of shops and restaurants, wonderful fruit and vegetables, cheese and breads and of course the beach!! I loved my time there and am planning to go again.

So glad you all had a great holiday! You are right, the house is called "La Nave" (the ship) because of the unusual design the architect gave it. The furthest point of the terrace is similar to a ship's prow. I'm pleased you enjoyed Chiavari. It is great if you are a foodie because there is a daily fruit market where you can buy the freshest produce and there are many bakeries where you can buy focaccia and lots of fresh pasta shops which sell the delicious "pansotti con la salsa di noci" (type of ravioli with walnut sauce). Some wonderful restaurants too if you like eating out. Really looking forward to having you back soon!
