Beautiful property set among the hills of Liguria. It overlooks a typical Ligurian village and is located only 10 km away from the sea and from Sestri Levante; the closer airports are Genova Cristoforo Colombo (at 50km) and Pisa Galileo Galilei (at 110km). The village (shops, bars, groceries, newspapers, etc.) is within a short walk through a steep pedestrian track. The property enjoys beautiful panoramic views of the mountains and the sea.
The old Ligurian house, on 3 floors and 350sqm, has been recently completely renovated and is surrounded by 4000 sq.m. of beautiful terraced gardens and an orchard. The swimming pool, set next to the house, is a converted water cistern of approximately 8x8 m. with overflow and a splendid view over the mountains.
The house has been completely rebuilt with traditional materials though in a contemporary fashion. It is fully equipped with all comforts. Tastefully furnished, the interior design blends contemporary and Scandinavian vintage pieces.
Entrance, living room with a double-sided fireplace, open kitchen and dining room, bathroom. Several doors open on the surrounding terrace and the swimming pool.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary kitchenware and household appliances (built-in gas hob, oven, microwave oven and dishwashing machine).
Sitting room with flat TV and satellite, 3 double bedrooms (two double-bed rooms and 1 double room), 2 bathrooms (1 with shower and 1 with shower and bathtub).
2d floor (attic):

In the cellar there is a washing machine, a dryer and an additional fridge with refrigerator. Internet access ADSL + Wi-Fi; PC and printer for guests use.
Parking space for 4 cars.
The house is not suitable for small children because of the high terrace, several staircases, walls, pool, etc.

Monika's hospitality was amazing from the beginning as we arrived. Before the arrival we received a very well prepared information document and Monika's speed of answering email questions we placed beforehand was great. Casa Leopoldo is one of the most beautiful houses I have ever been to. The pictures reflect the surroundings and the interior of the house already very well but when you first enter the house it is even more stunning. Monika's talent and taste of mixing vintage and modern design and using local materials and wonderful colours is adorable and inspirational. We have enjoyed our stay very much and although the area of Liguria wants to be discovered (Cinque Terre, sea, excellent local food, lovely villages, country side, etc.) we preferred to stay in the house most of the time and just enjoy being at this wonderful spot! Thanks for hosting Monika!
