    "A Wonderful Base to Explore the Cinque Terre and Portofino"

    10/13/2018

    Just as it has been for nearly twenty years, there he was waiting to greet us on this, our most recent visit to Villa Gnocchi. With his big smile and open arms Roberto Gnocchi was again welcoming us to his property perched high above Santa Margherita. and the Mediterranean Sea. Roberto serves as the host and concierge of this large family owned property that offers its guests rooms and a terrace with a spectacular view of mountains, valley and the Mediterranean coast that stretches for miles. The buffet breakfast prepared by Monica offers ample selections of meats, cheeses, tomatoes, olives, baked goods, juices, teas and coffee bound to please all of the guests. Memories of enjoying breakfast either alone or mingling with other guests on the spacious terrace will last a lifetime. Enjoy the swimming pool and sun yourself along its beautiful stone deck. There's ample adjacent parking as well as easy access to public bus transportation. The nearby little village, San Lorenzo della Costa, offers some nice restaurants, pizzeria, grocery and cafe. We love Villa Gnocchi and Roberto so much we have a large photograph taken from his property hanging in our home. Al and Marsha McGeehan

    "Simply perfect"

    09/18/2018

    We stayed at this farm for a week. Roberto is very kind, hospitable and full of useful advice. The farm is located in an ideal position to visit Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino, Camogli and other surrounding places. The structure is very welcoming and offers an enviable view over the Gulf of Tigullio. The room has a nice balcony and breakfast is plentiful and is served on a terrace with great views. The pool is large and clean. Less than five minutes walk there are two taverns and a pizzeria with excellent value for money. We strongly recommend this oasis of peace.

    "Relaxing weekend"

    09/09/2018

    Excellent central location, you can reach all the most famous places comfortably by public transport or, if you like walking, even by very scenic paths. Santa Margherita can be reached easily in 15 minutes on foot, while for the return we recommend the bus. Suggestive the panoramic terrace on which is served the excellent and abundant breakfast, view of which can also be enjoyed comfortably by the pool, always accessible and well equipped. No note on order and cleanliness, always impeccable. Particular positive note for Roberto, owner always available for advice and directions, has made even better a stay already fabulous. PS Do not take Taxi, the prices are exorbitant. EUR 35 for 8 minutes journey ...

    "A very charming place with incredible views of mountains and sea"

    10/29/2017

    From the first moment we were so taken by this special place. The villa with the ingrown natural garden and this view over Santa Margherita Ligure to the sea. We would go back anytime. The breakfast was so lovingly prepared, with own products from the garden and many other goodies. The host has taken a lot of time and explains the environment. The Villa Gnocchi is the perfect starting point to easily take a bus to beautiful Camogli and from Santa Margherita a boat to Portofino and San Fruttuoso. Simply great!

    We discovered the 'Villa Gnocchi' at the last moment and got a small room with a fantastic view of Santa Margeritha Ligure and the sea. With lots of helpful tips from our hosts we had wonderful days around Santa and Portofino.

    09/11/2017

    Lovingly maintained ensemble, great and convenient location for excursions in the direction of Portofino Genoa and Sestri Levante. The hospitality and service are top. We had late booking the smallest room, was still OK.

    "A Paradise"

    09/05/2017

    We stayed at Villa Gnocchi for one week in mid august 2017, and enjoyed every minutter of it! The former house and farm has two buildings, placed on top of terrasses with olive trees, grass lanes, a beatifull swimming pool with a stunning view of the Bay, and beautifull gardening in blossom, which Roberto keeps. - He even gave us a plant to take home to our garden because we liked it very much.
    Our room was well furnished with antique furniture, - and best of all: all rooms have a large balcony with an amazing panoramic view of the whole valley and the beatifull Bay. - You need'nt actually go anywhere - could just stay and take all the beauty and tranquility in.
    Breakfast at the panoramic terrace was very good, cleaning of the rooms fine.
    Ten min drive downhill to Santa Margherita, and you are in another beatifull setting, town was pretty, wit a very nice promenade at the sea. Town well equiped with boutiques and restaurants too.
    We certainly want to go back to Villa Gnocchi and its kind spirit!

    "Beautiful farmhouse"

    08/22/2017

    Beautiful farmhouse in a strategic position 5 km from rapallo, the beautiful camogli and the dear portofino. Santa Margherita can be reached even on foot by using a downhill slope in less than half an hour. The farmhouse has gorgeous basic accommodation but equipped with all the comforts and open to the gulf (at least ours) with private terrace with two sunbeds and two table chairs and a great privacy guaranteed. Just take two steps and you are in the pool surrounded by greenery (eye to the mosquitoes ... just a little autan). Great breakfast and owner Roberto besides being a lover of animals (great point in his favor) is a very nice and honest person. We will definitely be back (and very soon!)

    "A fantastic stay in a charming villa"

    07/01/2017

    The villa gnocchi is a dream. A little away from Santa Margherita and quietly situated in the mountains, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Liguria. The rooms are lovingly furnished, the beds very comfortable, and our room had a balcony, which revealed to us the sea and the village. Every morning from 8.30 to 9.30 there is breakfast, where you can also enjoy this view, just like from the pool. The staff is very nice and attentive, Roberto even picked us up from the station and took us back on our last day. There was a pleasant atmosphere among the guests and they got to know each other and gave themselves tips, just as we got a lot of help from Roberto for our daily schedule. All in all it was a great stay and hopefully we will return again!

    ""Two wonderful weeks in a beautiful place""

    05/20/2017

    They were two separate weeks: one in September last year, one in May 2017. And it won't be our last stay in that enchanting B&B. The place is particularly beautiful because of the splendid view of the charming city of Santa Margherita di Ligure and the bay beyond, as well as the very well-kept grounds on which it is established. The B&B is located on the border of a mountain village, San Lorenzo, municip. of Santa Margherita di Ligure and a twenty minutes walk (or 10 minutes drive) from that city. Our room (nr. 12) is ample, with sufficient storage space, airco and a double bed with good firm matresses. Every day the room (and the bed) are thorougly cleaned and made-up. From the spacious terrace in front of the room the view is breathtakingly beautiful. Breakfast, Italian style with some adaptations from our more northerly kitchen, is abundant. It is served on the half-covered top deck, from which the view is even more striking. Roberto, the pleasant owner and manager of the place, who speaks good English, meticulously maintains the grounds, with an abundance of flowers and fruit trees, and the nice swimming pool located on the lowest of the three terraces that form the property. Roberto is helpful and knowledgeable about the area and he is very willing to give hints and advice about touristic activities. The town of Santa Margherita is very attractive, with its fishing port and with many restaurants and shopping facilities. The village of San Lorenzo della Costa, on the border of which "Villa Gnocchi" is situated, is just a ten minutes walk away and it offers (besides one church and one typical bar) a surprising number of restaurants: a pizzeria (offering more than 60 different kinds of pizza) and four trattorias, one of which, "Amici", is really excellent. In the village you will also find a small, but well-stocked supermarket.
    We gave "Villa Gnocchi" a score of 9,5. The remaining 0,5 is caused by two minor details: 1. The shower in the roomy and impeccably clean bathroom (fresh towels are provided every day) produces very little water, probably due to the height of the location and 2. The narrow and steep winding road leading from the highway to the parking area of the B&B, on which one (especially one like me, coming from the totally flat country of Holland) fervently hopes not to meet another vehicle! These two points evidently are of minor importance compared to all the attractions this (our favorite Italian B&B) is offering.

    "A FRIENDLY PLACE, WELCOME WITH A MOZAFIATED VIEW"

    05/06/2017

    We returned for the long April 25th bridge at Villa Gnocchi. Our second time, almost a homecoming, and surely there will be others. The first was last year, in the summer, a fortuitous cancellation had guaranteed the room, otherwise. I remember coming back to the hill, in the cool place, where a nice iced door was waiting for us on our balcony, it was a mirage and a pleasure after the beach heat. In the spring, however, the coast is an explosion of colors. Of Villa Gnocchi we like the welcoming and warm atmosphere of the rooms furnished with antique furniture, we like the terrace where to have breakfast overlooking the splendid gulf of Santa Margherita, surrounded by a jungle of plants and ancient shrubbery overflowing with flowers. A breakfast that is always rich, tasty, casomai too tempting: the problem, if so can be called, is also find the strength to get in the car and start the day, so we are tempted to stay afloat on the beautiful pool below The olive trees, with the scent of lemons and a nice book to make us company. Roberto, then, welcomed us as friends, attentive and helpful with his suggestions, that we now blindly follow, knowing to go safe. The location, the atmosphere, the price ... how to resist? True, the access road is a bit steep, but it's so short, certainly not a problem.

    "Nice and quiet"

    04/23/2017

    Surrounded by nature, ideal for those who love peace and quiet, with a beautiful view of the gulf, is an excellent base for excursions in the Mount Portofino, with potential to reach Santa Margherita walk among the olive trees, in 20 minutes or by bus. Very useful to rent a scooter for getting around. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast buffet on the terrace with sea view, is excellent, a great start to the day ... and finally ... a dip in the pool! Steve, the owner, a great knowledge of the area is available for any information or suggestions. Our experience has always been positive and it is a place where we like to go.
