About Giulia and Luciana

My mother and I love our region and its traditions and want them to be known.

I really love walking and I think it is the perfect way to know and fell in love with this region, teeming with hidden places to be discovered.

What we love most is to help our guests giving them all the information that they need to spend a wonderful holiday in Liguria.

Finally but not the least is to know our guests in front of a glass of wine and some Ligurian specialities cooked by me and with the help of my mother and grand-mother!

We are gourmands and we hope our guests too!...

Why Giulia and Luciana chose Rapallo

We bought this apartment many years ago and recently we decided to restore it because it is near of our house, where my mother rent the second floor.

So we thought it could have been the perfect place to give our guests all the attentions that they need and the possibility to share our traditions and to know us.

What makes this apartment unique

San Lorenzo della Costa, where our apartment is located, is the perfect place for keen hikers, located in the heart of Portofino Regional Park. Overlooking Santa Margherita Ligure it will offer you the combination of mountains and sea.

From our apartment is possible to reach the foot paths of Portofino Regional Park by car, only 10minutes, or by foot walking through San Lorenzo della Costa admiring our beauties; breath-taking panoramas, wonderful houses surrounded by olive trees.

It is the perfect place to discover our region, feel like at home and come in contact with the locals in other words a real holiday!

Do you like cooking and taste new flavours?

You could taste some Ligurian specialities like the Focaccia al Formaggio that we can cook for you thanks to our firewood oven and spend an evening all together in the relaxing atmosphear of our garden and...

if you want to know how to prepare it and other specialities you can come to our place and we will give you more than a simple cooking lesson at a little price!

Please, ask in advance so we can organize everything for you!

THIS YEAR (FROM MAY TILL THE END OF SEPTEMBER)

WE DON' T ORGANIZE COOKING LESSONS.

WE ARE REALLY SORRY ABOUT THAT.

NEXT YEAR 2018, COOKING LESSONS MUST BE RESERVED THE DAY OF YOUR RESERVATION.

WE WILL BE GLAD TO ORGANIZE THEM BUT NOT ALWAYS IT WILL BE POSSIBLE. IT MIGHT HAPPEN THAT WE HAVE TO CANCEL THEM EVEN IF YOU HAVE RESERVED THEM IN ADVANCE.

Amazing hosts and an incredible area to stay in. We are definitely going back!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our first VRBO/HomeAway stay. Giulia and her family were very gracious and accommodating and greeted us with smiles and all the information we needed. The apartment was beautiful and each morning we liked to open the windows in the master bedroom to look out at the mountains while drinking our morning coffee. We just so happened to be staying on the days of their annual Festa di San Lorenzo della Costa. It was a sight to be seen in this beautiful town. Be sure to see Hank each morning at the local market for fresh bread and meats to take with you to the beach. Speaking of beaches, our favorite by far was the pebbly beach of Camogli. We visited a few countries in Europe on this trip and this was our favorite stop.

Bocca Guilia

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was beautiful, roomy and very comfortable. Our hosts were amazing and went above and beyond in making sure our stay was perfect. They were also very helpful in telling us the best places to visit and how to get there. I would definitely return to Bocca Guilia and highly recommend this accommodation.

Amazing location and excellent service and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a short stay of just two nights and wish we could have had weeks to enjoy this area. There is so much to see and do here. We enjoyed an easy walk down the path into town and were pleased to catch the bus back home. The apartment is very spacious with everything you could possibly need supplied.

We were greeted so warmly and enjoyed the wonderful experience of cooking with Giulia and her family and sharing a delicious meal. We look forward to hopefully returning here one day for a much longer stay. Thank you Giulia. It was a fantastic end to our Italian holiday.

Spacious beautiful apartment with attentive caring owners

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has been lovingly restored. It is clean and well stocked with kitchen necessities, linens and even DVDs if you have the Time! The master bedroom bed was very comfy and the view from the balcony stunning.

It was the wonderful service that makes this such a extroidinary find. Giulia is an Angel! She responded immediately to all my inquiries both before and during our stay. She transported us back and forth from the train station, helped with our very heavy bags and made dinner reservations for us. Each time we had a need for anything she offered us solutions with either helping us herself or being informative about where we could go for help.

You could never ask for a more customer oriented owner.

Book here..you will not be Sorry!

Excellent apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks and it was excellent vacation! Giulia and Luciana are providing top service.

Apartment is very spacious and comfortable, everything is clean and new. It is located at the edge of busy road and this can be disturbing sometimes. But during the night traffic is quiet. There is plenty of options to move around: local bus, foot paths or train from Santa Margerita. Alternatively you can use your own car. Please keep in mind that roads in Liguria are very curvy and you are always going up and down a hill.

Apartment is very well equipped and actually you do not need anything extra.

What is most important, Giulia and her Mom are always around and help you with anything you need.

This is a place to come back!

Thanks Giulia and Luciana!

Fantastic apartment & lovely family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in this beautiful apartment. There was a great amount of space, the location was perfect - we loved walking down to Santa Margherita Ligure. The best part though was our awesome cooking lesson/dinner with Giulia and her mum Luccia. They were the best hosts & our kids enjoyed it immensely. We hope to return in the future. Thanks Giulia & Luccia x

The medieval Abbey in San Fruttuoso.

In its setting on the Portofino promontory in a coastal inlet surrounded by a dense maritime pine forest, accessible only by sea or land via an ancient path.

FIREWORKS EVENTS:

The Ligurian nights are going to be lit up by fireworks.Tuesday 1st July will be the first one of the three magic evenings dedicated to the Sestrieri (districts) of Rapallo. In the evening of 3rd July a great show will also be set up in Chiavari. Moreover on the 8th of September in Recco big fireworks and focaccia al formaggio!

BEACHES OF GENOVESATO AND TIGULLIO

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. from there you can reach a wonderful and aesy path which leads to Punta Manara with a speechless view.

The beach of Paraggi is situated along a bay between Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino.

The beach is made up of sand and tiny pebbles and features two bathing resorts, one with a restaurant and dance club.

The Beach of Pozzetto is situated near Zoagli, about three kilometres from Rapallo. It is a mixed beach with sand and pebbles, with both bathing resorts and public areas. It can be reached by taking Aurelia road in the direction of Zoagli.

PORTOFINO PROMONTORY

This national marine park, situated around the Portofino Promontory, in the province of Genoa, was established in 1999. It comprises the three municipalities of Camogli, Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure. It's situated around the Portofino Promontory, in the

The park features high cliffs and small natural pools providing ideal conditions for many marine organisms. It is divided into three protected areas, in all of which free sailing, hunting and capturing of wildlife are prohibited.

Cala dell'Oro, between Punta Torretta and Punto del Buco, is the integral nature reserve area. Here, swimming, sports fishing and also diving are forbidden. In the general nature reserve area, between Punta del faro di Portofino and Punta Chiappa, however, diving is permitted. Many divers explore these waters to admire the Christ of the Abyss, a bronze statue positioned 15 metres underwater. Here, divers frequently spot gorgonians, red coral and fish such as groupers.

In the partial nature reserve area, which stretches from each side of the Portofino Promontory, divers can admire great meadows of Posidonia oceanica.

GENOVA:

The Palazzi dei Rolli are listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Palazzi dei Rolli

Via Aurea, Strada Nuova, via Nuovissima. These street names are still synonymous with modern times. But the streets of the Palazzi dei Rolli represent a slice of the Republic of Genoa’s glorious past.

A walk among these sumptuous residences takes the visitor back to the atmosphere of the 16th and 17th centuries and is also a unique way to experience works of impressive historic and architectural value that are still an integral part of the city’s urban fabric, now the homes of common citizens.

The ideal route to visit the Palazzi dei Rolli begins in via Balbi, then divides into two possibilities: the first, particularly sumptuous and regal, passes down the ancient via Aurea, today called via Garibaldi; the second, no less scenic route is quite lively, passing down via Lomellini and via San Luca, just steps away from the narrow lanes known as the “carruggi”.
