FORBES – 5 Top Italian Art Cities Where You Can Also Go To The Beach (Genoa/Liguria)

While you probably don’t head to Italy’s major art cities to go to the beach, with many of them you can. Here are coastal areas close to some of Italy’s top culture stops (listed alphabetically) that are good for a seaside break after a morning of museum hopping when temperatures soar.

From simple village beaches to jet-set havens, Genoa and its neighboring towns offer plenty of options for sun time. Boccadasse, the fishing hamlet that’s part of Genoa and reachable after a good walk (around an hour) along the Corso Italia from the city center, has a small beach (pebbly like many in the area) rimmed by colorful houses. Plan on stopping for lunch or staying for dinner at a waterside restaurant like Capo Santa Chiara, where the views of the sparkling Ligurian Sea are splendid, and the menu provides sophisticated offerings and Ligurian specialties. About 11 kilometers from Genoa, Bogliasco is an under-the-radar coastal stop, the first town you come to on the Golfo Paradiso once you leave the city (the preceding village, Nervi, is a district of Genoa). After walking the seaside path, you can relax at the dark sand beach fronting a sheer blue-green sea. Nine kilometers from Bogliasco, the pastel-toned town of Camogli has a good-sized seafront with public areas and private beach clubs, as well as many restaurant options. Enjoy a sunset dinner at the popular spot, La Piazzetta, right off the promenade. For a slice of jet-set heaven, swing by Paraggi, nestledbetween Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, where you can while away the afternoon in luxe style if you stay at the Eight Hotel, which has a beach club on the bay of Paraggi.(Nonguests can take in the heavenly setting by booking lunch at The Eight, the hotel’s fusion restaurant on the beach.)

Liguria, + 9% of requests for real estate by foreigners

The increasingly growing tourism boom in our region is leading to an increase in the interest of foreigners for the purchase of a holiday home.

Due to the crisis that has hit Italy in recent years, the real estate market has suffered a severe blow and is still struggling to recover. Italians have few savings available to buy a house and get a mortgage is always very difficult, but despite the moment, to purchase is really convenient. Foreigners who are buying numerous properties in Italy know this well.

Requests for properties from abroad in Liguria

Liguria is one of the localities that records the highest number of property requests from foreigners. These are both homes that need renovation, and then sold at a price even lower than the new, but also newly built homes with energy class A, many of which are also located in major tourist destinations. These positive data was reported by Gate-away, a real estate portal exclusively addressed to foreigners, that carried out a questionnaire from which it emerged that Liguria earned a comforting + 9% in the first quarter of 2017 with regard to the requests for real estate and thus resulting in the third national position of the rating of the favorite locations by foreigners for the purchase of a property.

Let’s see the detail of the provinces

The province with the highest number of requests is Imperia, with a 65.45%. Soon after, we found the province of La Spezia, with a 15.35%, then Savona, with an 11.99% and Genoa, with 7.22%. In general, the demand is growing in all the provinces. This is a phenomenon that affects more or less the entire territory including the center, despite recent events related to the earthquake that are not a deterrent for the purchase of real estate in Italy, while bureaucracy paradoxically is.

Who are the foreign buyers?

As for Liguria, the buyers are mostly Germans looking for a comfortable outlet on the sea (22.66%), but also the Americans appreciate the territory so much to buy a house (11.8%), followed by English (10.57%), French (8.84%) and Swedish (8.13%). Most of the properties are detached houses which need renovation are economically convenient. 28% of the requests, however, concerns apartments, practical and less demanding than a house.
