A few steps from the “Piazzetta ‘” with the port, restaurants and trendy boutiques in the center of Portofino, stands this splendid villa, built around an ancient olive tree, the result of the ingenious idea of the famous architect Luigi Vietti. The villa is spread over three floors, for a total area of 270 square meters, and consists of seven bedrooms and four bathrooms, entirely surrounded by large terraces and a porch which are ideal places to enjoy the magical atmosphere. Curated and finished down to the smallest details, the villa enjoys great privacy despite being close to the centre and its attractions. The property includes a perfectly well-kept garden of over 500 square meters. From every corner of the house, including the terraces and the garden, one can enjoy wonderful views over the sea and the entire town of Portofino. The distribution of the rooms is excellent and allows for the possibility of making a small annexed apartment on the ground floor with a terrace and porch while maintaining privacy in the main part of the villa on the two upper floors.
The “Portus Delphini” has ancient origins related to its position which made it a safe harbour for ships. Thanks to its location and charming nature, Portofino earned the nickname “Pearl of the World”. For decades it has been a popular destination for many VIP’s and stars and is visited daily by princes, kings, actors, models, and sports stars from all over the world. From the time of the first influx of foreign visitors – first the British and then the Germans – Portofino’s economy has been closely linked to elite tourism. The characteristic “Piazzetta” with its bars, restaurants and boutiques was recognised in July 2012 as an official historic place of interest within Italy, the first and only certificate issued by the homonymous association for its historical and cultural value.
