The Italian Rivera: This area is a fascinating natural attraction and a protected nature and marine reserve. The countryside is lush and full of tropical flora; the seaside climate is mild. Silvery-gray rocks rise up magnificently from the cobalt blue water. Narrow paths wind their way along the coast, up hills and down into valleys - this is really an outstanding area which has hardly changed over the centuries. The houses are painted in warm, faded colors with red or green shutters to contrast. The local towns include Santa Margherita Ligure, Paraggi, Rapallo and Portofino. The coastline is dotted with former fishing villages which have long changed to suit the times and clientele.

French sailors once discovered these tiny, picturesque bays - in the fifties and sixties this was the meeting place for Hollywood divas - which are now known as a gathering point for the noblesse: you will find a range of very smart restaurants, boutiques, a public shingle beach in Paraggi (15 minutes on foot), a railway station in Santa Maria Ligure (with connections to Milan, Genoa and La Spezia) and busses which shuttle from Portofino to Rapallo, via S. Maria Ligure.
Water taxis will also take you in the direction of Rapallo or westwards to the other coastal towns along the Cinque Terre - and these water trips are much more fun. Also ferry boats are available and connect Portofino with S. Margherita and Paraggi and it is possible to reach S. Fruttuoso, Camogli and also the Cinque Terre. Informations per il diving can be found at: www.europeandc.com.

The picturesque promenade, the graceful piazzetta and the villas hidden behind olive trees make Portofino a successful mix of both private and sophisticated abodes. Villa Portofino is a wonderful place to relax, walk, enjoy water sports and to visit the romantic Cinque Terre, all near enough for a day excursion.

                                  A walk brings you to the famous harbor of Portofino (20 minutes on foot, 10 minutes with a lift) - this fine harbor, where grand yachts lie at anchor, where VIPs stroll along the promenade, where exquisite fish restaurants and elegant designer shops decorate the picturesque bay. Despite the proximity of the colorful and lively harbor, the villa is tucked away and protected from the crowds: the house has private access to the sea and can hardly be seen from the road. This gigantic rock, towering up from the water, is shared with a couple of other villas, the Castello Brown, a lighthouse and the famous church above Portofino. A private lift connects the harbor below with the upper footpath, leading to the lighthouse. This path is flanked by highly exclusive villas - including our house, which is about 300 m from the lift and is reached along a narrow path.
