Laura's review of Villa San Fruttuoso
In a nutshell, my family (me, my husband, our two teenagers, my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my sister-in-law, and her two teenagers) ADORED Villa San Fruttuoso. It was heaven on earth. It's location is nothing short of stunning. While your web description is 100% accurate, it just isn't possible to express in words the spirit and beauty of such a magnificent place. If we were to go again (and I'd LOVE to), I would spend more time just relaxing at the villa or on the water. It is just a very, very special place.
It is tucked into a cliffside overlooking the Ligurian Sea. It is absolutely private, with access only being by a gorgeously kept, winding walking path that leads from the Portofino piazzetta to the lighthouse. The other alternative is by boat. The villa and its grounds are completely surrounded by lush plantings, vibrant flowers and lemon and olive trees. While it is true that the villa requires lots of walking and negotiating many steps, that is part of the beauty and privacy. The swim platform is magnificent, and we put it to great use -- leaping off of it daily to bask in the salty and blue, blue sea. The solarium is another incredible asset -- with a view to die for. And, speaking of views, most of the villa bedrooms look to the east, over the sea and towards the Cinque Terre coastline which means that the sunrises are BREATHTAKING from either the bedrooms or the solarium. You can also walk onto the roof of the villa and view them from there. Wow.
And, of course, the natural beauty is just one part of the allure of this location because it is also a destination for some of the most magnificent privately owned yachts in the world. We were agog time and again as the world's largest yachts (both motor and sail) glided by or moored out in the bay. It is so much fun to sit in the piazzetta in the evening and people watch! When speaking of the villa itself -- it is charming and very comfortable. The owner has a taste for art (I believe she is an artist), and the villa is filled with interesting art and arty decor which was a big hit with our teenagers. The living room is very comfortable and welcoming. The bedrooms are great, and there are plenty of bathrooms. The real treasure, though, is Teresa -- the housekeeper and cook. She adopted us, and we adopted her right back! She is a gifted cook -- making us wonderful pesto and pasta carbonara along with other local delicacies such as squid and anchovies (which I never thought I'd eat but, trust me, they were delicious!). My son got ill on our second day in Italy -- fever, sore throat, etc. etc. She calmly found us a local doctor and arranged for an appointment. (We don't speak Italian.) And, she took wonderful care of him, making sure he had something soft and bland to eat until he got better. One day, there were dramatic thunder storms -- she made sure we had umbrellas and plans for the day. The list goes on and on -- she was just a total love.
Baker's review of Villa San Fruttuoso
We had a beautiful time. Words cannot adequately describe the magic of the home in its unique, private, exclusive and gorgeous setting. The house is very comfortable, the bedrooms spacious and nicely furnished and Teresa, the caretaker and sometimes cook, was as delicious as the food she prepared. We loved her and each of our precious days at Villa San Fruttuoso.
The private setting. Between the water access to the solarium perched high on the rocks with a spectacular view, we were transported into our dreams.
The kitchen is completely serviceable, but it is not up to the standards of a high-priced property.
The exclusivity and privacy of the "gated" point is sublime. Portofino and neighboring Santa Margherita-Ligure are as picturesque as they could be. Magical!
