For those seeking an exclusive retreat, Portofino Bay assumes the magical allure of an earthly paradise. Portofino Bay (The Dawn) lies on the south east side of Portofino´s Peninsula Natural Park, along a pedestrian road from the Piazzetta to the lighthouse. You can also reach the villla with a private elevator that connects the harbour below to the pedestrian cobbled path 300 mt / 880ft from the villa´s gate.
Portofino, a picturesque harbour village, known as "The pearl of Tigullio", is renowed through the world thanks to the exceptional beauty of the deep blue sea, the luxurious mediterranean flora and the famous " piazzetta" (small square) with its exclusive boutiques, bars, cafes and restaurants.
The pink coloured villa Portofino Bay is immersed in the dense greenery of a terrace olive grove and offers you a striking view over the bay. Although the Villa is high above the sea, about 150 steps down, you can walk to a private stone platform for a lovely dip in the sea.
