Villa Pozzi is owned by the church and appears to serve as both a hostel and a hotel. Our family of five stayed in a single, large room with extra beds rolled in for the kids. The room was comfortable, clean and the area quiet. They also have private parking in a small lot just alongside the hotel. Vittorio is the hotel director. Very, very nice guy doing his best to take care of and look out for the best interest of the folks who stay there. We had a combined bath/ shower w/ hand-held shower head in our room so careful for those of you that might have trouble stepping into one of these (suggest you call Vittorio to see if they can set you up in a room with a walk-in shower). The first night of our stay, we wanted to go to a really nice restaurant so we asked Vittorio and, of course, he said, "stay and eat at our restaurant." We asked how much and he said 16 Euro each, chef's menu. We were a bit skeptical so we went out and ate, thankfully, at a local place called Rosi's bar (one of the best meals we had in Italy). Fortunately, we reconsidered Vittorio's offer for our second night's stay. Typical Americans, we asked for the menu and he said chef's menu (meaning chef prepares what the chef has). Didn't know what to expect. So, so glad we decided to eat there. Chef had an awesome pesto pasta, best we had in all of Italy!! Wife, who said she didn't want it as she didn't like Pesto Pasta reluctantly agreed to try it with Vittorio's prodding. She said it was the very, very good! Vegetables were also absolutely awesome. Wish we had asked for recipe/ ingredients. Rest of meal was similarly excellent.
Please be sure to visit downtown (by the beach) Sestri Levanti! Wish we had known about this the first night we stayed, but took a right when we should have taken a left.
Will gladly stay at hotel next time we're in area due primarily to the good company and care of Vittorio and his staff and we felt quite safe while there.
