Family Hotel Casella & Residence Bellevue is located in a preferred, peaceful corner of Pietra Ligure surrounded by lush vegetation.
This wonderful small town is situated in the heart of the Ligurian Riviera; it boasts a marvellous old town, spacious pedestrian precinct, sandy beach, crystal-clear sea and wonderful promenade. Hotel Casella has just been completely renovated and is the ideal place for individuals looking for peace and comfort in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere. Pietra Ligure is a great holiday setting and the Casella family and its staff are waiting to astound you with their courtesy and professionalism acquired in over 40 years in the hotel industry. Hotel premises include two buildings connected to each other with a convenient corridor.
Five different types of rooms have been completely renovated and furnished with prestigious rattan furniture to meet all needs. Your day starts with an abundant buffet breakfast – try apricot marmalade made with hotel’s own fruit, and plumcake. The hotel restaurant will amaze you with delicious menus, including dishes whose smells and flavours satisfy even the most sophisticated palates. Guests can select from a menu offering many local Ligurian specialties and daily fish, enriched with an assorted buffet of crudités (raw vegetables), tasty homemade desserts and fresh seasonal fruit. The cuisine is skillfully based on fresh, genuine, local ingredients. Many products enjoyed come from the farm (10,000 m2) run by grandpa Piero, including an excellent “Pigato and Rossese” DOC quality wine. The farm is also home to the old “Gumbu” oil mill, owned in the past by the Marquis of Carretto.
There used to be an old oil press and stone grindstone here; the family donated them to the City of Pietra Ligure, where they have been magnificently placed along the town’s promenade.
The beach in Pietra Ligure is wide and sandy, mixed with the typical gravel from the Italian Riviera; the sea slopes very gently from the water’s edge, allowing peaceful bathing even for more nervous bathers or for small children familiarizing themselves with the water. Pietra Ligure stands out for the quality of its crystal-clear blue water, which is even perfect for less experienced snorkelers who are out to discover fish ad admire the fascinating underwater flora. Several free and private beaches with facilities and amenities meeting all needs are located at the beginning of the promenade, which runs alongside the beach through the old town.
