La casa dei remi in barca was born as a place where time stops... it can be discovered again the beauty of nature, silence, crickets that serve as the soundtrack to the spectacle offered by the stars. Here we rediscover the value of small things.
La casa dei remi in barca despite allowing quiet to those looking for it, is not far from the center of Sestri Levante that can be reached in a 15 minute walk or less if you move by bike or car. There is also a bus stop not far from the B&B.
Sestri Levante, San Nicolò dell'Isola Church
For motorcycle enthusiasts, 300 meters from the B&B can be found the official Harley Davidson Portofino HD Portofino dealership, which together with the Portofino Coast Chapter organizes the Five Lands Rally and other events related to the legendary motorcycle every year.
Moreover, 700 m away from the B&B is located the headquarters of the Olivicoltori Sestresi Olive Growers Cooperative, with a historic mill and a space for the direct sale of oil and other derivatives.
Baia del silenzio
The house is comfortable, functional, and suitable for the use of families or trekkers and bikers or those who, for work or health reasons, need to stay in Sestri Levante.
At Gianna's B&B, not only the sea of the bay can be enjoyed, but also the countryside with the large garden available to guests where they can relax, play with their children or arrange their bikes and bicycles. There are also a few bicycles to borrow for free, after availability check.

Bookshelf for guests
...Despite the wifi connection available, I often advise my guests to try to re-connect with what they have around, rediscovering even for a few hours something special that the hectic everyday life makes us forget.
I have chosen to make many books available to guests instead of television: books of all kinds and for all ages, with special attention to the little ones who, at home, always have precedence although, for them, I will not provide modern and technological games but simple games "of old time". Gianna
