0.79km from Oratorio Don Bosco VarazzeBack in April I booked flights for my Wife & I to Genoa.....basically because of the price. Then came the problem of where to base ourselves. After hours of perusing different websites I plumped for Varazze & the Hotel Coccodrillo. Because there were few recent reviews it was a gamble but how wrong was I in that assumption. This Hotel was first class, friendly, clean, welcoming, a plentiful breakfast & a great pool. It is older & smallish but it had a great feel to it, we loved it. Varazze was fabulous. Enough to keep you occupied with plenty of bars & restaurants available. The Marina is another attractive feature of the town, easily linked to the main resort. The great thing with our holiday is that we did'nt encounter anyone else from the UK in the 10 days we were there, funnily enough, just what the doctor ordered. For days out, Genoa is 45 minutes away with Savona, a hidden gem, just 11 minutes away, both easily accessible by train. We walked to Cogoleto along the reclaimed coastal path, a beautiful walk with lovely little coves to enjoy on the way. Mostly we strolled & enjoyed the town itself, a drink, some food, Italian Ice Creams, really what more could we have wanted. Special mention to Blakes Bar on the way back to the hotel. Not the most welcoming from the outside, inside it looks rather gloomy but this is where we had our late night Gin & Lemons. Again looks are deceiving, but again we were made very welcome by the bar staff & locals alike, always a great way to end the night. Would we visit again? Without a shadow of doubt, a fabulous holiday. Thank You Varazze & thank you Hotel Coccodrillo, you gave us a lovely break. Oh, one special mention to Davide & the staff in the Restaurant, you were superb, friendly & attentive. Thank You all.
