(Minimum of one week rental required) Minimum rental one week rental Saturday to Saturday except for urban apartments. An enticing mix of warm Mediterranean breezes and tropical aromas of lemon, tangerine, and grape help establish Villa Frutto as an obvious choice for your visit to the Cinque Terre area. The property occupies the entire first floor of one of the oldest villas in Portovenere. Completely renovated in a contemporary style, the villa offers comfort, views, and proximity to a plethora of activities. The spectacular garden area, (with a well-groomed lawn, fruit trees for shade, and garden furniture for dining and lounging) is only... 200 meters from the sea. Parking is available upon request (for 125 euro/week) at the Grand Hotel parking garage.Parking is on first come first served basis.
For larger groups we have another apartment in the same building for 6. Please see listing for Apartment Venere. A marble staircase leads up to the front balcony and into the main entrance of the apartment. The interior is very bright and clean. The spacious living area, as with the rest of the property, is decorated with light-grey slate floors, and white furnishings. The living room also offers a sofa, flat-screen TV with cable and a dining table with seating for eight. The very modern kitchen is equipped with an oversize oven, stove, fridge/freezer with icemaker, and an espresso maker. From the kitchen there is a door that leads outside to a terrace with a kitchen, barbecue, guest bath, and table with chairs for al fresco dining. There are three bedrooms, two of which face the facade and offer outstanding sea views through French windows. The large bedroom is furnished with three single beds (these can be arranged to suit each clients' needs), and the two smaller ones have a queen and a single each. The queen-sized room has an ensuite bathroom with shower. A road leading out of Portovenere takes you up the steep hillside towards the Cinque Terre through the Mediterranean maquis. You can also reach the Muzzerone free-climbing area from here. A boat service takes visitors to the island of Palmaria, which is a regional park: protected from building speculation, it offers tourists beaches, cliffs, natural vegetation and grottoes that can only be reached by boat. The "grotta dei colombi" was a prehistoric dwelling.
The island of Tino lies beyond Palmaria: it is a military zone and is only open to visitors once a year on the occasion of the feast of San Venerio, the hermit who lived on the island in the tenth century.
Le Grazie is a coastal town set in a charming inlet in the Gulf of La Spezia; it developed around the old Roman Villa del Varignano, whose sizeable ruins can today be visited.
The unique landscape, the leisure port, the beach facilities and the opportunities to go diving off the coastal rocks in front of the town and on the islands all make Portovenere one of the most famous international tourist resorts. The restaurants are famous for their refined fish and seafood dishes (particularly the mussels that are cultivated in the local seafood farms), which are accompanied by the superior wine of the Cinque Terre.Read more
