Together with photographer Klaus Pudel, Mr Agnelli and the world icon Jackie Kennedy, we have learnt Portofino is, simply put, a dispenser of magic: its palette of blues, its pine and olive trees, its tiny harbour have turned this elegant destination into one of the most alluring destinations on the Italian Riviera and in the world. This villa stands high on the hill, overlooking the Piazza (square) and the harbour, offering unparalleled views of the gulf and a magical retro-chic atmosphere: this is the perfect place for all the well-travelled, elegant and Italy connoisseurs. A unique, marvellous combination: this villa is set on twelve acres of land, high in the hills overlooking the coast while it's few steps away from the Piazza, the Square of Portofino. It has wonderful, wide-open views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the night-lights of Portofino’s famous port; it offers total privacy and seclusion, and yet its location puts guests a few minutes-walk to the centre of town, a nice variety of shops and restaurants. Access to the property is incredibly non-traditional, yet fantastic: guests venture 200 meters (656 feet) into a tunnel bored into the sea rock of Portofino, then a lift (elevator) brings guests to the entrance gate, 80 meters (262 feet) up. A pathway through one impressive garden leads to the house built on three levels (approximately 60 stairs). As befits a property of this stature, the interiors have been exquisitely appointed with great furnishings throughout. Occupying the first floor is the spacious master bedroom, dining room and sitting room. The sitting room is decorated in a serene blue. This leads to the terrace introduced by French doors. The remaining four bedrooms are on the ground floor, opening directly into the garden. Moving on to the yard, there are four different outdoor dining areas, one of which features a beautiful vine-covered gazebo on a plateau. Guests will undoubtedly use this plateau as a choice vantage point from which to marvel at the Sea of Portofino. There is also a bar carved out from the rock of its natural surroundings. The beautiful areas of lawn and gardens are filled with flowers and trees. The property, due to its position, it’s not recommended for guests with walking difficulties of any sort. A porter service will take care of luggage on arrival and departure.
