À propos de ce logement
Near the historical center (15 min walk), but far enough from the city noise on the hills. Perfect for those who want to enjoy Genoa in direct contact with its people sharing our home in the true spirit of Airbnb, and enjoying the ancient pedestrian streets that will bring you to the city center, passing in a few time by the crowd of the old city to the fresh quiet of the hills.
The shared apartment, with elevator, is situated in the hills behind the ancient harbor and it is within walking through the typical genoese pedestrian narrow streets (“creuze”) (see pictures to the path) or by public transport. The rooms available to guests are two, depending on whether you are alone or in pairs (one room with double bed) or in groups of three or four persons (room with bunk beds and an extra bed). There is a large garden overlooking the sea, where you can get directly from the larger room, or the room. The rest you can see in the photos.
Accès des voyageurs
The house is accessible by our presence, so we will have to reach agreement on the entry and exit times. There are systems of access by key or code. We'll arrange for times of use of the house. On weekdays (Mon-Fri) you will have to leave the house at 8:30 am and will return after 17.30. On weekends, the times will be more flexible.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
You will be welcome in our house. You will have the opportunity to enjoy the whole apartment shared with our family (we are two parents, two children, and two cats but if you do not want cats in the house will leave them outside in the garden).
We will be present in the house during your stay and if you want we can have dinner together as a family. We like to prepare food together also. If you know there is a piano and play some guitars available. In summer and autumn the garden is very comfortable. If you want to, and consistent with our commitments, we will prepare meals together on weekends or dinner during the week.
The neighborhood is very quiet and away from traffic. The apartment is located in a hilly portion, with sea and the old city view from the top. There are comfortable and quaint public transportation (elevators, buses and funiculars) that will bring you to our home in a short time.
In the vicinity of our house there are some “creuze” (pedestrian narrow streets) that allows you to walk uphill for a even better sight or towards the sea (salita Cavallo, via chiodo, salita Bachernia, sentiero delle mura, parco del peralto, sentiero dell' verso i forti del Parco delle Mura, forte Sperone, forte Puin, forte Diamante).
In the morning we highly recommend the breakfast at the “Bar gelateria Magenta”, or at “Vaccheria of St. Anna”, near the arrival of Saint Anna funicular. From our home you can reach them on foot in about 5 minutes.
In a few minutes (15 ') walk you reach the promenade and the famous Castelletto Esplanade, from which you can enjoy the sight of all the ancient city (you can see in the pictures).
From there, using the headframe elevator, or walk down trough narrow streets, you can reach Via Garibaldi and the historical center among the greatest in the world.
You can also use a comfortable circular bus, the 374, which will take you from castle esplanade via high chancellor, close to home (stop Acquarone / Cabrini or Chancellor / horse).
To get around the city towards the historical center you can walk or take the comfortable elevators (Castelletto Levante or Ponente , Corso Magenta-Via Crocco) , funiculars (Sant’Anna), or bus 374 to make it easier to return home.
It is advisable not to move in the car to go downtown, because it takes longer than walking, it is not easy to find a car park, and those available are at a high price. The car can be used if you want to go to the Riviera but it is always better to use local trains (the Brignole station is quite close on foot or by bus).
If you love cycling for commuting, you will find a family who uses usually the bike and then can give you advice on how to get around by bike in the city and where to go. If you are experienced urban cyclists we can also lend you a bike to get around, but you'll have to demonstrate it ;-). If your times will be compatible with ours, we can also accompany you to / from the train station.
Occorre rispettare la privacy della famiglia (soprattutto di sera). Non è possibile fumare in casa, ma in giardino. Non sono ammessi animali.
