Chiavari is not that nice, but it is a perfect spot to explore the area. The house is not located in the nicest neighbourghood but once you are inside you forget about the rest. The gardens are beautiful and every detail has been taken into account to ensure a perfect atmosphere. Even the decoration inside the house is detail oriented....
