“Wonderful little villa, wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We were so impressed with this beautiful villa! The owners made us feel so at home and welcome! It was very secluded, yet very accessible to wonderful surrounding areas. Such a quaint space which added so much to our experience in Italy! Thanks for sharing your beautiful villa with us:)

“We will definitely return to this part of Italy, the diversity was amazing!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This trip to Casa Bosco was a combination; significant birthday, hiking adventure, family get-together, bringing friends and family from around the globe. You never know what you are going to get when booking on line but we were extremely pleased with the outcome. Everyone went home with fabulous memories. The house, hospitality, scenery, food, wine and hiking all exceeded our expectations. We will be back, hopefully others as well who have listened to our stories over and over...andiamo a Bella Italia!

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 5 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

This rental was wonderful in many ways but especially in that it offered us a quiet place when we needed it but was in striking distance of town, the beach and other areas such as Genoa and Cinque Terre. The rental was exactly as stated in the outline and more. The hospitality and friendliness of the hosts made us feel most welcome. I will say it would be difficult but not impossible to stay in this rental without an automobile.

Everything in the rental including the internet worked without a problem. The wine, oil and other items that were given to us by the hosts were most welcomed and enjoyed. We loved wandering around the estate and admiring the different views, plants and terraces that we came upon.

I found the furniture to be adequate though I did find the bed to be a little hard but that was my experience with all of the places that I stayed in my three weeks of Italy. The kitchen is well supplied for making simple meals as we often did in the evening. It was fun to go to the market in Chiavari to buy our fruit and veggies then go to the fresh pasta shop and load up on a different kind for the evening meal.

Chiavari is a lovely area with many activities to do and places to see. I would love to go back some day and I would definitely want to rent Casa Bosco.

“Fascinating Place”
Reviewed 4 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We found this villa to be beyond our expectations. The owners are an interesting and helpful couple who love their land and welcome guests as if they are important and respected. The place itself is gorgeous, the website tells the truth about it, and it is extremely comfortable. The wine, olive oil, and grape jelly were wonderful gifts. We wanted to stay longer.
