About the Homestay
Family atmosphere, pleasant, informal where animals and children are always welcome! Gay friendly!
I forgot .... Genoa has a particular road network and when you arrive, if it is the first time for you, we will pick you up for free (except for the airport for which we ask for a small contribution) and we will take you home !!!
Our house is large (110 sq m), has a garden around (130 sq m) equipped for eating and having a barbecue at the moment.
At home we live in two and often our grandchildren come to us (from 12 to 19 years old); also live with us a dog saved from a horrible, docile and affectionate end and, above all, a land turtle, TATA, who goes around the house, does not want to hibernate in the winter .... she stays at home with us and behaves like a "canine"! We found her on the street about 20 years ago and she is regularly reported in the Prefecture.
Guests have at their disposal a room with a large and comfortable double bed (it can become single) and a French door overlooking the garden.
Our interests are books, music, collections, films, animals, theater and we speak French (not very well but we do well), German (well) and English (excellently).
Prices: € 8.00 each person exceeding two o'clock and € 8.00 for final cleaning.
The house is very suitable for children, the elderly but, unfortunately, we have found that access with wheelchairs for the disabled is very very difficult: for us it is a nuisance, but the structure of the building does not allow facilities.
I speak a bit of French, my husband an English and a German good good. we do not have a private car park but around the outdoor parking is not a problem. We put in the cars of the guests is our business so that for any case we are called immediately and in any case in the area we are known MUCH.

Family atmosphere, pleasant, informal where animals and children are always welcome !!!!
We have a very polite dog saved from a horrible death and a turtle .... domestic (does not want to hibernate and is at home with us). For this reason we cannot accommodate people who are allergic to one of these animals or people who do NOT like animals.
For our part, we are very willing to also accommodate your four-legged friend as long as it is not aggressive and / or dangerous (we will talk about this that you come).
Obviously, having grandchildren, children of any age are also welcome; the only "drawback" is that we only have a shower and not a bathtub. But we can provide a special plastic bath.
In the summer we assemble in the garden a large swimming pool (equipped with filters, cover and so on) which, we have noted, makes the joy of children and adults and is also used in hot or sleepless nights!
We are there. Come and visit us?
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
excellent stay, friendly, quiet, pleasant, do not hesitate
An exceptional welcome, a very quiet room that overlooks a very nice garden and very pleasant guests that ask for more to spend an unforgettable stay. Thanks to Rossella and Luigi we’ll be back soon.
It was so great to stay with Mrossella and her husband Luigi. They are super hospitable and we feel like real guests. They met us and lead to the house. They have a very nice apartment on the hill, full of books and interesting things from over the world. They were very helpful and Luigi made a perfect coffee for us. To stay with them was a nice italian experience unfortunately it was just one night stay, we would like to return there again. Location is good, first you think that it is far away from the center but it is not, because there is a public lift from the hill.
Luigi and Rossella were both excellent hosts. They were able to give suggestions and directions for things to do around the city. Luigi speaks excellent English and makes excellent coffee. Their dog Rex is a playful, loveable sweetheart! The apartment is located in a very quiet area of Genoa, but a short distance from the city centre, so it's perfect!
Accogliente e disponibile.
Queste persone danno concretezza al piacere di viaggiare.
Rossella y Luigi son dos personas muy amables, nos han hecho sentir muy cómodos desde el primer momento. Nos recogieron en la estación de tren y nos llevaron a casa, no sin antes pasar por un estupendo mirador desde el que se ve toda Génova. La casa tiene todo lo necesario y está bien situada.
Tanto Rosella como Luigi te hacen sentir como en casa, nos han dado muchas facilidades y recomendaciones de sitios para visitar y hemos tenido charlas muy interesantes. Su perro Kuki también es adorable.
El alojamiento es muy recomendable para pasar unos días en Génova.

A lovely home, very central to Genoa but in a quiet area. Hosts were very helpful explaining how to get around and spoke good English.
