Located in the town of Levanto, Villa Miramare is a unique and fascinating villa belonging to a prominent Italian industrial family. Its position is remarkable as it is located directly on the water overlooking the sea and the harbor of Levanto. Built in 1956 on the ruins of the Castello Miramare, its form is reminiscent of a boat and was purposely designed this way.

Because of its location, guests can enjoy a private view of the Ligurian Sea and also have convenient access to the Cinque Terre villages and other seaside destinations such as Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure and Genoa.

Levanto has long been a beach resort loved by Italians. Its people are known to be hospitable, friendly and relaxed. The surrounding coastal villages are charming and full of history and culture.

Take off from Levanto on foot on the scenic trail and you will be in Monterosso del Mare, the northern most Cinque Terre village, in less than two hours. Or, from Levanto’s train station, you can access the villages in a matter of minutes. In the spring and summer months, ferries depart twice daily from Levanto for the Cinque Terre, the Riviera, Portofino, Genoa and other points along the coast.

Access to the villa is by way of a public walkway from the town. This side of the structure can be used by the passengers for ferry access and it is publicly open at all times. The ferry leaves twice daily in the spring and summer.

You may enter the villa either through a doorway from the covered walkway, or through a private gate and staircase up to the first floor. This is a gated access to the house and, once inside the house, guests enjoy privacy, as the living and dining quarters all open up to a direct and unobstructed view of the sea.

Secured parking for one car is included in the rental fee. It is also possible to stay at Villa Miramare without a car. Levanto is a stop along the railway running north to the Portofino area and Genova and south to the Cinque Terre villages and beyond. Monterosso,del Mare is 5 minutes away by train.
