Romantic period villa surrounded by lush gardens with modern rooms and views of Portofino
This 23-room hideaway in a 19th-century peach-colored villa among Mediterranean greenery offers a tranquil base from which to explore the famed fishing village of Portofino. Its lofty position means stunning views across the water, and a path behind the hotel provides an easy and scenic walk to the town’s lively piazzetta. The hotel provides umbrellas for those wanting to while away the days on the beach below, while the more active might want to tackle the peak behind the hotel, San Fruttuoso.
In the Area
Join the glitterati and gawkers at lovely Paraggi Beach, a popular curve of sand on a bay in Portofino, lined with restaurants and bars. Worth the hike up the hill is Castello Brown, a stunningly situated museum that hosts art exhibitions and events, with captivating views of the harbor. Pay a visit to the Cervara Abbey, a Benedictine monastery set on a sheer cliff between Santa Margherita and Portofino (it also has noteworthy gardens). Then visit San Fruttuoso Bay with a diving company like DWS to snorkel or dive to see the sculpture of Christ of the Abyss, a bronze statue submerged under the sea in the 1950s as protection for sailors.
