Stay in Sestri Levante
Great property - just as described in the listing. Location was perfect and house was well appointed. Vincenzo was a wonderful host and looked after all of our needs. Would highly recommend!
Clean Spacious Home with a Beautiful View!
The view from this Cavi home will take your breath away...each time you see it! The sunsets are spectacular! The home is very spacious and clean. From its location we easily visited Cinque Terre and Portofino. But perhaps our best day was when we stayed in Cavi Borga, relaxing and exploring the tiny village. We ate at several of the restaurants and were pleased with every meal. We walked to the Village several times during our stay. It is an easy walk (look for the steps down into the heart of the Village). Vincenzo is a very inviting host, and will help you with any information you might need. And did I mention...the view will take your breath away!
(My only suggestion is: if you are a very light sleeper, as I am, take ear plugs because the train runs until late at night. It didn't bother my husband at all)
A Breath of Fresh Air
What a special place! My husband and I spent three weeks at Vincenzo’s beautiful villa; and it wasn’t enough time! We were very sad to leave. The villa occupies a superior location on the Riviera. The views are breathtaking, and the breeze and air are wonderful! Vincenzo and his family definitely made us feel like it was home! My husband is always ready to return to the US, but he didn’t want to leave this piece of paradise. The town of Cavi is a short walk down (we would say, let’s “walk downstairs”, which meant let’s walk down to Cavi). We enjoyed having aperitifs at Borgo (loved the Ugo Spritz), eating at the Cantina, and talking with the butcher (he helped me with my Italian). We also fell in love with Sestri Levante. Nettuno and Zeus Bar are great places for sunset! We visited Monterosso (and Buranco winery), and Vernazza, where we took a boat taxi to see Cinque Terra from the sea. We also visited Portofino, and spent a day at one of our favorite beach clubs at Paraggi Bay (Bagni Fiore). We were on several boat excursions and our favorite was Set Sail Tour with Captain Mike (we sailed with him twice: day time and sunset). Vincenzo suggested that we visit the Bisson Winery for a tasting, and what a surprise it was! Pietro, the owner, cooked for us and proudly explained to us his special wine making method (amazing)! We enjoyed all of our activities; but most of all we enjoyed relaxing at the villa. Our Italian friends from Lugano visited us one weekend, and enjoyed it so much that they cancelled all their plans and returned the following weekend. (My friend said to me yesterday, “Thank you for introducing us to Vincenzo, we are going back next weekend”). It is definitely a breath of fresh air! Thank you Vincenzo for a wonderful stay, for the wine, and the special gift! I loved the written note. Luna Bella is still missing Giorgia and Matteo!
Beautiful place and breathtaking views!
My wife and I spent a week in this wonderful place and couldn't be more thrilled with the experience. 4 lovely bedrooms, all with air conditioners was certainly more space than we needed but gave the feel of living for a week in our very own vacation home on the Riviera. The view from the living area, 2 front bedrooms, and balcony (hot tub) can't be described in words or captured fully with photos!
The location is great for visits to Sestri Levante, Santa Margharita Ligure, Portofino, and many other places in the area. We flew into Milan and rented a car. The drive to the coast was about 2 hours and the roads were nice. We were glad to have a car with us for our plans but I could easily see spending a week here with nothing but relaxing in mind where you wouldn't need one.
If you are looking to spend a day on the sea I would highly recommend looking up Captain Mike and Set Sail Tours who takes out groups on his sailboat from Lavagna. Truly one of the best days of our entire trip and just a 10 minute ride away. I would also recommend the hike along the coast from Santa Margherita Ligure to Portofino and definitely plan some time for just relaxing at this wonderful property.
Vincenzo was a lovely host and took care of any needs or questions we had throughout our stay. His only goal was to ensure we had the best week ever and boy did we! One of the best meals of our trip was at Raui just down the hill in Cavi that Vince recommended.
Truly an unforgettable week that already has us trying to figure out when we can come back!
Thanks for everything!

My family have just enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks holiday in this beautiful villa. Vincenzo and his family were very welcoming, always on hand and helping us whenever needed. The villa has a vista you will never tire of.
I certainly would not hesitate to recommend this gorgeous home.
Charming Seaside Villa
Outstanding views of the Ligurian Sea from practically all rooms! Villa is spacious with living areas separate from large bedrooms. Everything was clean. We enjoyed a short walk down steps to the town of Cavi and Ristorante Raieu for fresh seafood. Nearby Sestri Levante has a pedestrian street with shops & Ristorante La Mainolla with excellent seafood and pizza.
Easy to day trip to Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Lucca. Highlight was a 1 hour ferry ride to the Cinque Terre with stops at Manarola and Monterosso al Mare.
Our host Vincenzo was friendly and helpful in many ways. We look forward to a return trip to this beautiful villa!
Take the Highway A-12(Genova-Livorno),take the exit for Sestri Levante,and follow directions for Cavi di Lavagna (Cavi borgo).Ask for panoramic road (Via della Pineta) at No....
There are nearby seafood restaurant and local cuisine, there are boats for portofino, San Fruttuoso and Cinque Terre.
