Boccadasse: in Genoa we offer a wonderful property for sale, only 20 meters away from the sea, in a timeless fishing village.
The house consists of a large kitchen on the ground floor with adjoining patio. On the upper level, there is a nice studio, while on the first floor there is a pleasant and comfortable living room with fireplace, two double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms as well as an attic.
The property includes a panoramic dining area with a kitchen.
From every room of the house you can enjoy a sea view.
A few kilometers from the city center, you can also have access to the bay and go to the village of Boccadasse, with its old houses made of stones, leaning against each other around a beach.
Almost everything regarding the architecture has remained the same over time, but it has also changed a lot: from a fishing village, with sailors and workers of the Port, to a seaside, commercial and above all tourist destination, full of new activities alongside the historical ones.
In the old village you can admire all its beauties as well as notice the different way of living the daily routine: the power of the waves, the stormy sea, the red sunsets during autumn, the blue of the sea in some days, the rising of the sun from the sea during the winter sunrises, the cormorants, the pleasure of taking a swim...
The origin of the name Boccadasse may derive from the shape of the small bay: Boccadasse would mean "donkey's mouth" from the Genoese dialect mouth of azë, or referring to the "Asse" stream that once flowed through the village or, again, from the name of an ancient owner, Guglielmo Boccadassino.
