Comfort & relax Villa Bonera: not the usual hotel

Villa Bonera

A blast from the past

Villa Bonera is a charming family-run XVI Century Villa and it’s been a hotel since mid 1800s.
The building has maintained original flooring, frescos and decorations. The garden of the Villa, small-sided proof of the huge XVII Century park, surrounds the hotel with its flowers and plants and it’s fully accessible, as well as being location for breakfasts and meals during the warm season.
Our parking is certainly available for guests, in the garden itself.

But don’t get us wrong: we leave luxury to the great 5 stars hotels and rely on the genuine hospitality with a smile, in an informal setting.
In a context like this, we gladly host you so you can enjoy some of the classic Genova Nervi that still survives in its historical buildings and unique views.

The ideal hotel for a holiday with your family, your partner, or your friends, but even if you’re alone on a business or pleasure trip and you’re sick of big hotel chains’ coldness.

Like an extended family

Beyond Morandi family (father Roberto, mother Gabriella, and brothers Barbara and Marco), part of the historical Villa Bonera group is also formed by Sofia, Rudy, his brother Richard, Ajrina and Alessandro.

  • Roberto– He’s the historical memory of the hotel. If he wakes up with a straight moustache he’s a funny guy, but if it’s crooked you could be reproached ‘cause you ate a croissant instead of a piece of cake.
  • Gabriella – The pastry chef the whole world envy us. Everyday she gets compliments on her marmalades, cookies and cakes; she smiles back, thanks, and goes back to knead.
  • Barbara– In her first life she was a scientific researcher, but it looks like she’s been a hotelier forever. If you bring a pet with you, rest assured she’s going to love it.
  • Marco– OK that environment is informal, but he takes advantage of it: long beard, knickerbockers 6 month per year, and that love for t-shirts…
  • Sofia– The fastest waitress in the Sardegna Kingdom. She’s been working here since the ‘80s, so she’s part of the Villa as much as the frescoes (but she looks much younger).
  • Rudy– The nightman has come from Perù. A night porter who could seem grouchy at first glance, but deep inside he’s got a golden heart. Don’t challenge him to a pool game, his hit is relentless.
  • Richard– Rudy’s younger brother, he’s our handyman. Villa is ancient and there’s always a trouble to fix, but his magic hands will repair any glitch.
  • Ajrina– Straight from the Balcans, our Queen of the rooms is as much ironic as accurate in her cleanings (except in the rooms infested by ghosts).
  • Alessandro – The new guy at Villa Bonera, Alessandro is the only Genoese besides the Morandi family. Try his pesto and his raw fish, you won’t regret it!
