Portofino house description

Enchanting Hilltop House with spectacular view of Portofino. Located in Zoagli, Rapallo-Portofino area, Liguria, Italy (30 minutes from Genova; 45 minutes from Cinque Terre)

Perched on a terraced hillside with olive trees, 'Il Frantoio di Piero' is a two-story property overlooking the Bay of Tigullio and Portofino, on the world famous Italian Riviera. The combination of quiet country life with the proximity to the seacoast makes this place unique.




Extras 1: You wake up to the lovely sound of birds, have full access to an extensive landscaped garden with bougainvillaea, roses, herbs, cherry, apricot, peach, prune trees and grapes, then go for a swim or a daily excursion, and relax at dinner on a panoramic terrace, enchanted by the view of boats sailing through the beautiful Portofino Bay at sunset.






Extras 2: The large terrace, equipped with deck chairs and shadowed by a large umbrella, is also used for sunbathing, reading, and relaxing. The character of this property is part of Portofino’s world heritage, where clusters of houses have kept their original architecture and colors, and the hill presents steep terraces of cultivated land.

Extras 3: Inside the house, the salon and dining areas, and master bedroom are painted to reflect the colors from the garden: sage and blood-colored orange, pistachio and sunflower yellow. The floors are all terracotta tiled and raw linen curtains frame the views of the sea and garden and bring shade.
