The B&B has a great atmosphere, located in the mountains with an outstanding view in the valley. The owners are very friendly, open-minded, flexible and have a lot of knowledge of the region and activities you can do. The rooms are unique, very clean and the breakfast is great.
Alessandra greeted us and gave us very helpful information about what to see, do, and most importantly eat! Her restaurant recommendation for La Brinca was one of the best meals of the trip! Villa Paggi is in a perfect location for exploring the surrounding towns (Genoa, Portofino, Cinque Terre etc). Our room was very clean, and offered a beautiful view over Chiavari. We also enjoyed the delicious breakfast buffet out on the terrace before taking a long hike in Portofino. I absolutely recommend this B&B and hope to return soon!
We spent great 4 nights in Marina's and her sister villa. First of all, both ladies are very nice,helpfull and short italian language course was included in the price:) Mille Grazie Marina ! Our room,Portofino, was very spacious, with old style furniture, with big terrace and comfortable private bathroom.The room were very clean, cleaned evry day and towels were changed every day as well. Breakfast was delicious in,italian style but big enough and varied plus fresh fruits included. Wi-fi worked perfekt.Location of the villa is great,,just 5 minutes walk to the Rapallo. dowtown.Thank you!
We had a wonderful 1 night stay at Villa Paggi in July. The view across the valley is beautiful and overall the stay was great. In particular, the breakfast was delicious - there was a huge range of options, all very fresh, including cakes, local honey and eggs. We ate outside on the terrace which was heaven. The location and service sets this B&B apart from others.
My husband and I, along with my brother and his wife stayed at Villa Olimpo for 3 glorious days - We wished we would have stayed longer. Marina, the owner of the B & B, is fabulous - such a wonderful, kind and gracious hostess. She made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay here. This beautiful home was originally built by Marina's great grandfather - it is stunning, the rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are very nice and the views are spectacular. Rapallo is so central to everything. There are cruises traveling daily to Cinque Terra, Portofino, St. Margerita. By car or bus - short distance to Genoa. For anyone travelling to the Italian Riviera, we highly recommend Villa Olimpo.
Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour à la villa paggi. Le cadre est tout simplement exceptionnel, la chambre tout confort, le petit dejeuner délicieux et très varié, sans parler de la gentillesse et de l excellent accueil des propriétaires . Un séjour sous le signe de la détente, du repos et de la découverte de la liturgie italienne.
My wife Deb and I stayed here for a few days in May 2015. It was absolutely perfect. Marina is a kind, wonderful woman. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding area, even giving us a pre-made map with recommendations for local dining. Breakfast was delicious and the views from the room were gorgeous. The location was perfect for us. Easy access to nearby tourist locations such as Portofino and Cinque Terre. Wish we could have stayed longer.

After family recommended Villa Paggi to us and told us about the great hosts, Alessandra and Gianluca, we stayed for a week this summer. Alessandra and Gianluca were very kind and helpful. They provided good hints on what to do in the area. The house is very beautiful and extremely well kept. We had such a great time, that we are considering to come again soon!
Villa Paggi est un B&B de haute catégorie. Les chambres sont grandes, fonctionnelles et très propres. Les petits déjeuners sont préparés avec soin sous forme de buffet. Tout est fait maison du pain jusqu'aux délicieux desserts . Les hôtes sont d'une grande gentillesse, très disponibles et nous offre beaucoup d'informations pour d'agréables visites dans la région. C'est la troisième fois que nous y séjournons et nous remarquons la constance de qualité de cet établissement. Nouveauté cette année: le dîner buffet EXCELLENT offert durant notre séjour. Le rapport qualité/prix est digne de mention. Merci à Alessandra et Gianluca, À une prochaine visite, c'est certain. Louise et François, Québec
It is already the fourth time we stayed at this wonderful B&B, and we loved it again! Everything is made with love and great taste - the house and garden is stunning, the views beautiful etc etc. The breakfast on the terrasse is a real treat and a perfect start of the day before exploring the surroundings. Alessandra and Jeanluca are perfect hosts, and do everything they can to spoil their guests. Overall strongly recommendable, also because it offers very good value for money.
This beautiful hill-top getaway was a magnificent dream! The views were absolutely breathtaking and each bedroom was uniquely designed with love and care. The best part: the hosts! They cooked us two home-made meals which were these fantastic long and drawn out evenings spent chatting over delicious food and champagne. I will highly recommend this to everyone I know who is going to Italy!
Me encantó parar en la casa de Marina, me sentí muy cómoda, la atención fue muy acogedora, la casa es trasladarse en el tiempo, un placer con todas sus letras. Volvería allí y se la recomendaré a mis amigos que pronto visitarán Rapallo. Gracias Marina por tu hospitalidad.
My husband and I recently (April 2014) stayed at Villa Paggi, and had a lovely time. Beginning with the warmest welcome imaginable, we were given detailed information of the surrounding area then shown to our spacious and well appointed room. The public areas, both inside and out, were created with both solitude and togetherness in mind. The wellness area was an added plus and worth making use of. And the food was phenomenal, especially the bread and cakes which were homemade. We are literally counting the days until our return to Villa Paggi!
We were in the villa for 1 week, it's really fantastic! All the rooms in the villa are beautiful with a lot of art. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast is good. Also the location is nice, just à few minuts walk to the center of Rapallo. Marina is such a nice lady and a great host. She only wants the best for her guests. We will go back!
Four years ago we discovered accidentally this little gem on the Ligurian coast. We always said we wanted to return some day and our chance was there.Both too busy every year and we had to spend some quality time together.We can say that after four years the Villa looks as beautiful as before even more improved.We had another room which was very nice and comfortable with all amenities you need. Alessandra and Gianluca as friendly as ever.I think they started at a very high standard and they have been able to sustain that level which is not everywhere to be found. We were in no rush and prepared for literally "doing nothing" which might sound a bit lazy.Honestly in this place we can relax from all daily stressed life.Wake up in the morning and enjoy Gianluca's fantastic home made pies which are very suitable and well thought for a breakfast. After a day at the beach it is nice to return to the calm mountain situated Villa Paggi.I slept like a log on the comfortable beds I promised myself that I still have to visit Cinque Terre so we have to go back for sure.Autumn must be beautiful around there with all different colored leaves. As busy as they are the owners always find the time to have a nice chat with you and very helpful in finding your way with a lot of well explained paper sheets,maps and plans. Quality can be found here.Owners who like what they are doing:giving people a great time which you can fill in completely by yourself,and retrieve to your "home" after a great evening at one of the fantastic restaurants for example.(great selection available by the owners) Highly recommended also with children. We wish you both prosperity and good health to run this beautiful place for a long time. Eric and Leanne.
Everything was great and we had the best time at Villa Paggi with personalized service and hospitality, very highly reccommended for travelers who plan a visit to Liguria region!
We had made reservations at another B&B but they cancelled on us 4 days before we were to check in. Alessandra at the Villa Paggi was so helpful & accommodating to our group, even when we were late arriving. The house is beautiful & the setting on the mountain is breathtaking! I wish we could have stayed longer & we are definately planning a return trip in the future.
senza parole! abbiamo soggiornato fine estate 2012 durante una settimana di sole totale ! non riusciamo a trovare difetti alla struttura ed alla ospitalita' del titolare e famiglia. camere pulite e silenziose ; ambiente curato di design ma accogliente e originale. il rapporto prezzo qualita' e' ottimo tenuto conto di quanto ormai accade di trovare in giro tanto sponsorizzato ma poi deludente !!! tornenemo la prossima estate sicuramente .
Sono stato in più occasioni a Villa Paggi e in differenti periodi dell'anno: è un posto estremamente gradevole; e le camere, arredate con gusto, trasmettono una sensazione di benessere e rilassatezza anche per la scelta di materiali naturali quali la locale 'pietra-lavagna e il legno. Numerosi piccoli 'belvedere' consentono di trattenersi all'aperto, prendere il sole e rilassarsi magari leggendo immersi in un piacevole ambiente naturale. Nel contempo si è vicini alle varie località di mare e anche andare a Genova o alle '5 terre' risulta facile. Per qualsiasi informazione si può sempre contare sulla cortese disponibilità e sulla competenza di Sandra e Gianluca
I spent 2 nights in Camogli room with my boyfriend. Even if the weather was really bad at that period (rain and a bit cold), we had a delicious time at the Villa. The breakfast is amazing (there is smthg for everyone's tastes and all homemade), the room is very pleasant and clean and the Jaccuzzi room, a nice place to enjoy a moment of relaxation. Nearby the villa, the sea and different places to visit. Nice and rather cheap restaurants down the valley (nothing surprising, it is Italy). I definitly recommand Villa Paggi for your 2-3-night stays. Alessandra and Gianluca are very welcoming people.
We arrived very late due to getting lost and Giovanni was very helpful. He even offered to take us down to the village to get something to eat. The next morning when we were ready to leave we went to the car and the tire was completely flat. Both my friend and I are older he was kind enough to change our tire for us and tell us where to take it to get it repaired. Casa Kiwi is very clean and has a view to die for. Only recommendation I could make is to get there before it gets dark. We enjoyed our stay very much. Coni Meyers
