Welcome to Recco in B&B Casa Balin!
CasaBalin arises in an oasis of peace and good mooth.
“Balin” is a term used since 1850 by local people of Genova to indicate a "small child".
CasaBalin is located on the heights of Recco, 5 minutes from the center and from the sea.
CasaBalin is surrounded by olive and fruit trees. It was used as a reference point by the large family, which had always grown and harvested this land.
With the renovation of the first floor, which began in 2012, we wanted to keep as much as possible the original parts: the structure of the roof, the stone walls and many others details. Three new bedrooms with private bathroom, tastefully furnished and provided with every comfort were built in addition to the breakfast area and kitchen.
The house is surrounded by wide-open spaces where you can relax in the sun or under the shade of an ancient fig tree.
In a short time you can reach Camogli (only 2 km far), Santa Margherita and Portofino and the famous Cinque Terre.
For those who love trekking, you should not miss the visit to San Fruttuoso (also reachable by boat), or you can also do a trek in Portofino’s mountain as well as in the paths above CasaBalin (for example the path to the Sanctuary of Caravaggio).
The lovers of good food should not miss the famous “focaccia al formaggio” (focaccia with cheese), well known all over the world!
Balin is waiting for you with the utmost courtesy, to make you feel at home.
