We have just returned from our third stay at Casa Bosco. We love the quiet seclusion of this spacious house surrounded by olive trees overlooking Chiavari and the Mediterranean. The large kitchen was ideal for big "family" meals and the bedrooms all very comfortable.
The easy access into Chiavari via a walking path is a feature we enjoy and because of the excellent train service along the coast we have not had to rent a vehicle in order to visit nearby towns. We are hikers and enjoy the many trails from Portofino Park to the Cinque Terre.
We look forward to our next stay.

This was our second time staying in Casa Bosco. We love the area, the possibilities for exploring are endless. We got a little more adventurous with our cooking and conversing in Italian. We also had an opportunity to show our 'secret' to some friends and family, which we may regret!
A few tips: buy a train pass if you are going to stay for an extended period. Try local specialities like anchovies and artichoke. Visit the local information center across from the train station as soon as you arrive. They provided us with valuable information on hikes, music performances and local festivals.

This place is a serious excellent find. We were so very impressed with the facility. Clean, well equiped, and so very private. The gardens around the property are wonderful with rosemary, sage, orange trees, and calla lillies growing everywhere. This was a place to cook Italain meals, sip wine and enjoy eating out on the deck with candles in the evening. In addition, the local town was just a 10 minute walk down hill and you were at the center of town. Great market, friendly people and a joy to explore.
Large, clean, bright house with everything you need. Great location. All descriptions available on the Internet are true, even better!
Nice Italian house set in an olive grove with views of the sea. Suitable for a large single family, or two families travelling together.
