Über dieses Inserat
These are two apartments on the first and second floor of one of the oldest buildings in the city. They are both apartments of atmosphere, which still retain many original features from the early Middle Ages, as the ancient terracotta pipeline that brought water from the roof to the tank below the road, the wooden ceiling and the one Pisanelle (bricks) one; at the same time they offer all the comforts of a modern apartment, from autonomous heating to the dishwasher and wifi.
Together the two units tell the history and ways of life of a medieval family, the family Camilla, who built the palace around the eleventh century. The "Camilla House" remains today the oldest witness to the world of "tower house".
The "portico house" arises from the need to merge the housing requirements of the family to the commercial ones, while maintaining a clear separation between public and private space. The first consists of a lodge on the ground floor (apartment 1); the second of a living area with fireplace (apartment 2), and the bedrooms on the upper floors.
With its width of 6.7m , the loggia of the Casa Camilla (Loft 1) is one of the oldest in the world. In this period Genova is characterized by the severe and dark gray color of the lodge stones, that is alternated by the strong red of the bricks used for the facade and the floors . The restoration of the ancient “pisanelle” (bricks), characterized by a bright red and a thickness smaller than that of today’s bricks, was a particularly delicate and demanding job.
The caminata (Loft 2) often presents a greater height than that of the other floors and items of value, such as a wide multi-light window. The ceiling, unfortunately strongly inflected by age and by building works on the upper floors, was made with the masts of disused ships.
The apartments have both a living room with mezzanine, a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen ( Loft 2 ) and kitchenette ( Loft 1 ). They are fully furnished and offer various spaces and closets also for long-term stays. They are equipped with 6 and 7 beds repectively, with the possibility to add a baby bed for children up to 3 years.
For more details, see the respective descriptions of the two units under my profile.
The staircase and the facade should be restored soon. Both lofts expose to the south, and are therefore very sunny; they overlook a small square full of green, where you can stop and get some 'fresh in the summer days and that is closed to the public at night. In the morning you will be awakened by singing birds! They are located in the pedestrian zone (with shops and historic workshops) and therefore enjoy complete silence; However, the taxi can take you straight to the front door. In less than five minutes you can reach several public parkings and the main metro stations and buses. It is the ideal base for exploring on foot the area of the Aquarium (3-5 min), the center (3-5 min) and the museum area. The Cathedral of San Lorenzo is 100 m away. With the old lift sung by the poet Caproni, you can reach "Spianata Castelletto" in just a few minutes, which offers an incomparable view of the entire city.
NOTE: It is possible to reserve a parking space in the silos of the Via Marina Park at 15 Euro per day. The Silos is 700m (8 min walk) from the apartment.

Let me tell you about myself.
My name is Paola. I spent in Vico Indoratori my first 6 years of marriage. When our second child arrived, we moved to a larger apartment. The loft has become my studio - here I come to work and I can spend entire hours undisturbed, forgetting about life outside. Also Lorenzo, our first child, loves coming back to visit the house where he was born: he climbs up the stairs and goes back to what has been his first room. Of our three children he is the only one who lived the sounds and colors of the old town, he is the only one who has memories of this apartment dunked in centuries of history.
I graduated in Computer science and I am currently working as IT at an international school. I speak german, english and french, I spent long periods abroad and I love meeting people from around the world and showing them corners and secrets of a city that is known to be reserved and closed.
I love traveling myself and discovering the secrets of other countries and cultures. I love photography and each trip represents for me a new oportunity. I love reading, music and sport, in particular we very ofthen spend the best days of the year sailing on our J80 boat.
