About the property

Newly refurbished apartment in Nervi, Genova

Above the fishing village of Nervi, on the peaceful hill of Sant’ Ilario, this top floor apartment is a relaxing oasis entirely surrounded by the typical Mediterranean vegetation and with a breathtaking view over the sea. Its strategic location lies between Genoa city centre and the renowned Riviera, including Portofino, Camogli and Santa Margherita Ligure. The apartment has been carefully and entirely refurbished. From its balcony and south facing windows, you can enjoy an astonishing 180° degrees view over the sea: from the sunrise by the mount of Portofino, to the sunset over the Alps. On the other side, the view over the dry-stone walls and the olive trees, gives the impression to be in the countryside, whilst benefiting from the close proximity to Nervi.

Francesca was the kindest and most welcoming host you could hope to meet. She made our visit to Genoa extra special and memorable. The apartment was beautifully decorated and the view was magnificent. The beds were so comfortable and the apartment well heated. Francesca speaks excellent English. We would love to stay again. I recommend Francesca and her apartment without hesitation.

Where do we start?

Francesca is by far the best host we have ever met, she is so sweet, she was so warm and welcoming.

We were amazed how clean and modern the apartment is and the views are sensational! It was like a 5 star hotel family suite (just need to make your own bed 😊) we absolutely loved the apartment! There was everything we needed. I am super fussy with accommodation when it comes to cleanliness especially and this was fantastic! Everything felt new and like home.

Francesca also had this amazing information guide she prepared for us with all we needed, for day trips where to go, for dinner where to eat. Halloween for casual dining was our favourite with kids it was absolutely amazing. Very popular with the locals!

We had a car so getting around was easy.

We will miss Genoa and Francesca's smiling face.

We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 6 & 8, the 2 spacious rooms were fantastic and comfortable beds made it that much better!

So close to Portofino however didn't get to see due to Ferarri closing town off day 1 for launch of the new Portofino ferarri and day Rain! Maybe next time!

We will be back!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Francesca and family - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

The apartment suited our family of 5 perfectly and it was impeccably clean.

The apartment finishes throughout the apartment are even better in person than in the pictures - and so are the views of the Mediterranean Sea! From the balcony the views are 180 degrees of beauty looking down on Nervi, to Genova, and even Portofino! The floor in the foyer, dining room, and bedrooms is literally a work-of-art that was recently refurbished to pristine condition - gorgeous and reminiscent of a vintage 5-star hotel lobby floor.

The kitchen is comfortable and functions very well for cooking in if you can hold off on the great dining in the region. We made breakfast each day. It is well stocked with everything you will need and we were even greeted with some provisions to help smooth our transition into the apartment - our kids loved the snacks! Very nice :-)

Finally, Francesca is the most gracious host we have had after using HomeAway and airbnb many times. Her communication is perfect and she is full of suggestions regarding what to do and where to go if you need them.

10 out of 10 !!!

Thanks again.

The Braun Family
