Beautiful seclusion

Posted Sep 29, 2017
The host, Raymond, is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The service was impeccable! I believe we were the only guests the night we stayed, so Raymond had meals cooked just for us ... so special Thank You Raymond!

Wonderful Stay

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Location. Nice small pool.
Location: Beaches a short drive away. Caves of Toirano are nearby and very interesting.
Nice small hotel in the mountains. Great base to explore the nearby mountain villages and beaches. Fabulous owners who are always looking to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Very enjoyable!!

Posted Apr 27, 2017
Only used the hotel as a base due to an extensive sightseeing schedule but the owners Raimondo & Cristina were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Raimondo's bacon & eggs got our day off to a perfect start!! The dinner menu is varied and can recommend the carbonara. The rooms are comfortable and kept clean. In summary we hope to return one day...Magari!! (Raimondo will understand Magari!!)

Lovely family run hotel

Posted Oct 25, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed in this little ten room hotel for two nights at the end of October with my 12 year old son. Beautiful setting about 15 mins into the mountains from the coast. The best thing about the hotel was the incredible hospitality and friendliness of Raimondo & Cristina. It is refreshing to stay somewhere where the couple so clearly enjoy running a hotel (even in the last week of the season). Brilliant advice on the local area. Very accommodating to a specific request I had about a late check in. The view from the room was beautiful: if possible make sure you have a top floor room with a balcony over the pool. We had 2 super breakfasts and one lovely home cooked evening meal. Only downsides was the pool was not really useable as it was unheated and so was about 12 Celsius! Hope to be able to return one day with other members of the family.

A delightful and quiet retreat in the hills.

Posted Jun 29, 2016
Pros: Charming hosts; good food; good accommodation.
Cons: No
Location: Very quiet location
We chose Ca' de Berna for it's location not far from the coastal motorway whilst en route from Genoa to the Côte d'Azur. A winding road took us up to the mountain village of Balestrino, where this small hotel nestled almost hidden from view. The welcoming host showed us to our ample sized bedroom and after freshening up, we joined other guests for dinner on the terrace. A good selection of both food and wine were on offer; our meals were delicious. After a good nights sleep and breakfast taken again on the terrace, we were on our way, totally refreshed.

Paradise in the mountains!

Posted May 5, 2015 on Hotels
Staying at Ca' de Berna was truly one of the highlights of our trip. The view is absolutely incredible, room clean and comfortable but most of all the company of the owner unforgettable. He speaks very good English as well as Italian and German. We absolutely enjoyed swapping stories of our travels with him. We had a marvelous meal in his restaurant. I asked what a traditional meal for the area might be and he brought me Borage stuffed ravioli in a butter sage sauce and my husband Pesto Lasagna which was extremely flavorful but not overpowering like some Pesto can be. Then we shared a hearty rabbit dish with peppers and olives. As good as the meal was sharing his company was the best. Would go back in a heartbeat!

lovely relaxation stay in the hills of Balestrino

Posted Aug 28, 2014 on Hotels
Ray and Christina were very gracious hosts. We had two hotel rooms as we were three friends traveling. both hotel rooms were clean and very comfortable. dinner just down the street in this tiny little neighborhood was also delicious -- at the restaurant where Ray and Christina served us. :-) we had a very lovely stay and what a beautiful region! i recommend this place if you are looking for a stay that is quiet and tucked away.

Secret spot off the beaten track

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Lovely small quiet hotel, with wonderful hosts Raimondo and Christina, and of course the wonderful food at the restaurant.
Location: Raimondo is a wealth of info on things to do and see locally and along the coast. Recommend the little town of Cervo and the caves in Taurito.
This is the second time we have stayed here, having first discovered this place on our honeymoon 5 years ago. Couldn't wait to stay here again as loved it so much the first time, and were not disappointed. Fabulous location in a quiet village up in the mountains and only 20 minutes from the coast. If you want a nice stay away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy resorts and hotels this is perfect. The restaurant just round the corner also offers very tasty food :) Delicious Pesto Pasta and of course the Midnight sauce :)

All's good!

We stayed here for just one night, but it was one of the more memorable locations we stayed at during our tour of northern Italy. The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable, and the surrounding area was extremely restful. The small village base was ideal for us, providing a very relaxing environment that was extremely attractive. We would also recommend eating at the restaurant run by the hotel owners a short distance away, which provided a range of delicious home-made meals. Overall, this hotel provided exactly what we were looking for at a very attractive price.
