Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Olive Press Lodge, as its name suggests, is a renovated farm house where olive oil used to be made. The villa is situated on a gentle hill, about a 15-minute walk from the sea and the town centre. It is ideal for a relaxing holiday and offers a great opportunity to discover the Italian Riviera.
Its surroundings are a typical Ligurian garden with olive and fruit trees. It offers the shared use of an outdoor pool, barbecue area and the boules areas (petanque).

On this floor there is also a utility room with washing machine and ironing facility and a bathroom with shower. The kitchen includes dishwasher, smeg oven and hobs, electric grill, kettle, coffee maker, fridge, freezer and blender.
On the upper floor there are 3 double bedrooms (one with two beds) and two spacious bathrooms (one with bath and one with shower). The pool, the barbecue and the boules areas are easily accessible via a terrace from this level .

The North West Italy region
Liguria is a beautiful region between the sea and the Apennines. The coastal side is the famous Italian Riviera, for years the haunt of the rich and famous including Portofino and the Cinque Terre.
Liguria is rich in vegetation and has many spectacular vistas and natural itineraries in its regional parks and reserves.
The area offers many areas for walking and hiking. The beautiful coastline provides many opportunities for horse- riding, cycling, and on-foot excursions. The Alta Via dei Monti Liguri stretches along 400km of mountains crossing a landscape typically characterized by lush vegetation and rugged cliffs.
The sea is another great resource of this region, rich in marine life which includes porpoises and dolphins. These can be spotted in the sea mammal sanctuary established to protect this maritime area.
The Tigullio bay, enclosed by the nature reserve of the mount of Portofino and the peninsula of Sestri Levante, offers splendid views of the Mediterranean.
Chiavari, which is situated in the centre of the bay, is a typical Ligurian town characterized by a historical centre with arches and shady, colonnaded streets. It is a small town which offers many elegant shops, good restaurants and an excellent opportunity to live life at a relaxed pace.
We are on a small hill, surrounded by olive groves, close to all coastal amenities including beaches, marina and promenade restaurants, as well as to the centre of the town.
We aim to cater for your needs and offer three different properties for you to choose from:
Olive Press Lodge: a comfortable villa that sleeps 6 guests;
Garden Lodge: a smaller apartment that sleeps 4 guests;
Belvedere Lodge: ideal for a couple.
Our properties are all close to each other, making them ideal for groups of friends or families who wish to holiday together yet maintaining their own independence.
We have an outdoor pool, a barbecue area, outdoor dining areas and terraces. The properties are set in the olive groves, surrounded by fruit trees and lush vegetation. We are about a 15-minute walk from the promenade, the marina the railway station and the centre of town.
Florence, Milan and Turin are easily reached by train from Chiavari. Portofino and the Cinque Terre are about an hour away and are easily accessible by boat, car or train.
