About Fresco Chantal
My name is Chantal. My family owns this beautiful house since many generations, and me, mom Maria Letizia and sisters Serena and Marina decided to renovate and rent it after daddy passed away. Zina was the name of his boat: we used to sail the Gulf spending unforgettable summers in the most fascinating seaside in Liguria. Our father, Lorenzo has been living in Portofino when he was a child, and told us many stories of that period, including naval bombardments during 2nd world war, but also the faboulous '50es and '60es... At that time people could dive, swim and cacth fishes into the port during the day, and, after sunset, the smartest used to spend their best years having parties until sunshine, meeting in their stock-rooms in Calata Marconi. Those stocking - rooms, today, host the most famous restaurants and shops, turning Calata Marconi in the most elegant promenade in Liguria. Portofino was the place where you could enjoy a genuine, smart, and light-hearted lifestyle.
Fresco Chantal purchased this Apartment in 2010

Posizione ottimale per raggiungere in poco tempo altre località come santa margherita. La casa è ben fornita di tutto ciò che serve x trascorrere una vacanza con gli amici. Ci ritorneremo sicuramente, soprattutto x la gentilezza dei proprietari!
Perfect positioning in a stunning apartment
A beautiful apartment overlooking Portofino. Very comfortable and spacious with 2 good size double bedrooms plus a twin with two bathrooms and a kitchen. Best entered from the street. The owners were very helpful with information before our arrival and very understanding when we had to leave earlier than planned. We would definitely stay in Casa Zina again if we return to Portofino.
Portofino (Ligurian: Portofin) is a small Italian fishing village, comune and tourist resort located in the province of Genoa (at 36km) on the Italian Riviera.
The town is crowded round its small harbour, is closely associated with Paraggi Beach, which is a few minutes up the coast. Other nearby beaches include Camogli, Chiavari, Lavagna, and Sestri Levante.
Casa Zina is in the heart of Portofino, Calata Marconi: just forget your car, and walk or sail!

Once arrived, be aware you are in a magic place, where you can leave behind stress, and warnings.
Casa Zina has two entrances, one is in Calata Marconi, full of restaurants, the beautiful promenade where you can have a drink, or take a boat and sail away!
