Portofino villas - a vacation in Italy's picturesque seaside village

Villas in PortofinoYou have undoubtedly heard of the breathtaking fishing village of Portofino, which has seen scores of celebrities and famous nobilities arrive to bask in its blue-green waters.  But did you ever think you would be able to relax in your very own Portofino villa? The village is formed in a half-moon shape to accommodate the fishing boats, cruise ships, and private yachts that regularly make themselves at home in the harbor.



Your Portofino villa, perched high above one of the most beautiful Mediterranean ports, presents you with a view that stretches its fingers far in each direction, and shimmers along the horizon just like the waves crashing below. You will feel as if you are in your own private world as you relax on the deck of your villa, and if you listen closely, you may be able to hear music playing from one of the boats sailing along the sea.

Portofino Italy villa rentalsPortofino is famous for its delicious seafood, its luxurious shops, and its picturesque Italian cobblestone streets. Be sure to visit the Castello Brown, built in the 16th century and used to defend the harbor from attacks from the English. Today, this castle houses some of the most beautiful works of art in the region. Portofino's waterfront has long been the object of paintings, photography, and admiration, so indulge yourself with a glass of white wine at one of the restaurants on the central piazza as you watch the vibrancy of Italian life play out before you.

Let the wind blow through your hair and take a ferry to one of the neighboring seaside towns like Santa Margherita Ligure or Rapallo, where you can enjoy a day trip of lounging on the beach, hiking up to hilltop castles, or lunching along the shore. Your Portofino villa will tantalize you with its expanse of comfort and it may even entice you to take a dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean sea!
