Activities/Attractions: Leivi is not a typical fisherman's village gathered up and dominating a bay along the Ligurian Riviera. It is instead an exception to the hilly local countryside overlooking the sea. Its houses and villas are scattered all over the hills among the olive tree cultivations that cover the entire area from top to bottom (foot) up to the town of Chiavari.

They are linked to one another both by the main winding road which passes by five small churches and by old, picturesque paths made by the local people in the old times and which are still very proudly well maintained up to today. Leivi is mainly well known as a centre for olive oil production and is an interesting alternative for a touristic trip for those who want to reach the inland areas at the back of Chiavari.

Chiavari is a small seaside town in the province of Genova, 46 kilometers from Genova city between Portofino and the Cinque Terre, famous for its natural and artistic sights (it belongs to the Natural Reserve of Portofino). With its 27,000 inhabitants, it is a small town tied to tertiary sector activities, including fishing and crafts, famous for its local production of straw-chairs called "campanino" and its fine home-made lace "macramè".

Genoa, the capital of the Region, is a large port but also a fascinating and little known historical city. The city has a glorious past (Christopher Columbus was born here), the great sights of which still remain and with a particular charm all its own. Liguria is a garden overlooking the sea, a landscape painted of palms, blooming seafronts, fishing boats and colorful houses. Liguria also means historical cities and small medieval towns, places of international fame with names which recall the notes and colors of the Dolce Vita.

"We had a wonderful time staying at Costasecca B&B. We had a car and wanted to avoid staying in larger cities. Leivi is a good day tripping spot for Cinque Terre and Portofino etc. Anna, who runs Costasecca B&B is an extremely friendly and helpful person who gives you local tips about the best ways to visit spots, where to park etc. Anna speaks perfect English which is also very useful. We enjoyed having our dinner alfresco in the evening and listening to the distant church bells, a perfect spot. Anna keeps an immaculate house and the bed is very comfortable. What more could you want!"

"We really enjoyed the stay on your premise, and I will certainly give your address to friends who would like to visit your area on their holiday."

"Hello Anna, we had a good journey, thank you again, I hope one day I will sit in the evening again under your "ombrellone" and have a glass of wine."
