Architectural designed central apartment a few steps from the beaches. PARKING



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Bright, Modern apartment 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 People. Private parking.

Located in the 'Carrugio', the pedestrian area of the historical downtown in Sestri Levante, just a few steps from the beaches of the Bay of Silence and the Bay of Fables. The apartment has been completely restructured integrating a modern architectural design into the original features of the house, and finished to the highest standard. This extremely bright and quiet apartment is on the third floor (no lift) of a typical Ligurian house, offering broad views across the town and local landscape. Parking in a closed private nearby garage included in the price.

The apartment is a duplex: on the first level is the living area with sofas, flat screen satellite TV, DVD player with dozens of DVD movies, free WiFi, table and dining for 6, a modern open plan kitchen leading to a covered terrace, south oriented, with table and chairs. The master double bedroom and a smaller single bedroom are also located on this floor with a complete bathroom with shower. A black stone and iron stairway leads from the living area to the open second level mezzanine, with a double sofa bed and a single bed, closet and the second complete bathroom with shower. The whole apartment is lined with windows, bathing it in natural light and its third floor location offers privacy, open views and quiet.

Stepping out of the apartment, you will find yourself surrounded by the liveliness of the town’s center, leaving you spoiled for choice of animated local bars, restaurants and shops not forgetting the peacefulness of the two beaches are also a stone’s throw away.

We had an fantastic stay in Sestri Levante. The flat is on the top floor of a cute apartment building. The stairs are steep and that adds to the Italian charm. It's very comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and spacious. Our family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed there and we loved it. It's nice that it has two good sized bathrooms and plenty of sleeping room. The flat is located on the main downtown, busy walking street of Sestri so it can get a little noisy. We were fine with ear plugs. I highly recomend staying here and would love to stay again.

Beautiful and tasteful.

We loved the property even though we had to climb the 50 + stairs to reach it ! Unsuitable for very young families or unfit. It was ideally suited for our needs. Situated amongst the shops and restaurants. A 5 minute walk to the beach. Well equipped.

Absolut empfehlenswert für Familien

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub mit unserer Tochter und ihrem Freund in Sestri Levante verbracht und haben uns in dieser Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung an sich ist stylisch eingerichtet, die Möbel sind modern und komfortabel, die Küche hat alles zu bieten was man fürs Kochen braucht. Der Esstisch ist gross genug für ein gemütliches Abendessen und es gibt einen kleinen Balkon auf dem man frühstücken kann. Auch die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr gut: Mitten im "Stadtkern" in der Fußgängerzone gelegen ist von dem Trubel draussen in der Wohnung nichts zu hören. Gegenüber der Wohnung befindet sich die (nach unserem Empfinden) beste Bäckerei von Sestri und auch die beiden Strände sind in wenigen Gehminuten zu erreichen. Gerne wieder!

We had a great stay in Sestri Levante. The apartment made our holidays perfect. The location is excellent and it is furnished with passion for detail. We love Liguria, we love Italy. We definitely come back. Thank you, Piero for offering such a terrific apartment!

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even better than the photographs suggest. The quality of the furniture is apparent - the sofa bed opens and closes with the touch of a little finger and our children loved making dens in the storage cupboards. It is well equipped and stylish yet comfortable and we felt very relaxed there. We didn't meet the owner but my online dealings with him were friendly and efficient. Sestri Levante is a fantastic family beach town with everything close to hand. This apartment is at the heart of everything yet still peaceful, although we did keep all the windows open to enjoy the (great) live music that filled the town one evening. The stairs are quite steep leading up to the apartment but I can't imagine there is another apartment as good as this in the town so please don't let a few stairs put you off.

From the Owner

Originally the property was my wife’s family home which we decided to completely restructure when I retired to have a peaceful and comfortable apartment in the heart of Sestri Levante, one of the best touristic spot in the Italian Riviera. We still use the apartment for short holidays, as we do with another holiday apartment (HomeAway nr. 1003581) we own in Marbella, Spain.

Sestri Levante, once a quiet fishing village, is a beautiful little town approximately halfway between Portofino and the Cinque Terre, which are probably the most well known tourist destinations on the Italian Riviera. Located on a small peninsula, jutting out onto the Mediterranean, Sestri Levante is flanked by two beaches, offering two of the most picturesque views of the Riviera and with its historic town centre winding between them.

The isthmus between the two bays is the original nucleus of the ancient 'Segesta Tigullorium', a centre of primary importance for the Riviera in Roman times. Walking along the small and lively alleys between the bays you will find shops, art galleries, bar and restaurants where local seafood dishes are served. Via XXV Aprile is the main alley in the pedestrian area, locally known as the 'Carrugio', where in a typical Liguria house at number 49 is the apartment offered for renting.

Sestri Levante, is known as the town of the two enchanted bays. To the west is the Baia delle Favole (the bay of Fables) a name coined by Hans Christian Andersen who lived in Sestri in 1833. The Bay of Fables is a lively, animated bay boarded by a 4 km promenade where you can walk or bike and a beach where you can lay and have a drink in one of the many beach bars.

To the east is the even prettier bay, the Baia del Silenzio (the bay of Silence) with its small beach framed by a backdrop of pastel-colored houses. The Baia del Silenzio opens to the east of the isthmus that joins Sestri Levante to what was once a single island along the coast. The sandy beach is surrounded by elegant, Ligurian-style houses. It is a landing for small sea craft that are usually anchored in the centre of the bay. On summer evenings and nights the many bars and restaurants just steps away from the beach are favourite spots for tourists and local people, creating a pleasant atmosphere of festivity under the lights reflecting in the waters of the bay.

A visit to Italy’s famous “Cinque Terre”, which in 1998 joined the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites, takes into what is one of Italy’s best preserved areas, both in terms of history and its natural scenery. Cinque Terre is 25 km east from Sestri Levante and although accessible by road, a very comfortable 25 minute train ride is recommended. Trains to Cinque Terre run all day long and the station is only 700 meters from the apartment. An even better way to travel to the Cinque Terre is by boat: during summer a boat departs from Sestri Levante every day at various times and travels along the coastline, from village to village, offering a mesmerizing view of the Ligurian coastline.

Portofino is 30 km west of Sestri Levante. The headland and the little bay whose tall, narrow, pastel-coloured houses frame the harbour, is one of the most famous sights in Italy. A playground for the rich, famous, and fabulously chic since the late 19th century, the former fishing village remains one of the most exclusive locations on the Ligurian coast. Behind all that glitz, however, you can still uncover the area’s local traditions in the nearby villages. Portofino is reachable by train, car or preferably by boat (50 minutes from Sestri Levante) which also leads to Rapallo and San Fruttuoso, a splendid monumental complex on the sea side closed to Portofino.
