Villa Piazzetta Portofino. A unique, marvelous combination: Villa Piazzetta in Portofino, is set on twelve acres of land, high in the hills overlooking the coast while it's few steps away from the Piazza, the main 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 only a few minutes walk to the center of town, and a pleasant 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 an impressive garden leads to the house built on three levels.
As befits a property of this stature, the interiors have been comfortably appointed with elegant furnishings throughout. Occupying the first floor is the spacious master bedroom, dining room and sitting room. The sitting room; decorated in a serene blue, leads to the terrace through French doors. The remaining four bedrooms are on the ground floor, opening directly into the garden.
Moving on to the exterior living opportunities, 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 views of Portofino, the coastline south and the sea. The beautiful terraced gardens with lawns, herbs, flowers and mature trees and a large private pool.
Villa Piazzetta is situated in the coastal region of Liguria, just north of Tuscany. A fantastic Italian location, based in the Riviera Ligure, considered by many one of the world's eight wonders. Portofino is a small town of no more than 500 people, placed upon its bay. Portofino became famous in the 60s, when the rich and famous characters of the "Dolce Vita", actors, actresses, pop stars, and rich aristocrats frequently started visiting it for its beautiful setting, exclusive parties, and breathtaking views.
At the time, the high society moved from Via Veneto and Piazza di Spagna in Rome during weekends to Portofino, Capri, Saint Tropez, Montecarlo, Cortina and Saint Moritz. Through time, Portofino has seen a high standard of living thanks to its exclusive guests, huge yachts, famous boat races such as the Zegna Trophy and for its incredible and natural beauty.
