Villa Paraggina is located in one of Portofino’s most picturesque locations, namely Paraggi Bay; it was built in what was formerly the Park of the medieval Cervara Abbey.
Totally immersed in peace and greenery it is overlooking the sea and dominating from the headland.
It can be reached via an elevator carved into the rock or via a beautiful path in the park.
Villa Paraggina has hosted famous people in the past (residence of Oscar Wilde, among others, during his Ligurian period).
The property includes the main villa, a secondary villa, an annex, the old greenhouse, and various storage rooms; it is entirely surrounded by panoramic terraces and gardens with cypresses, palms, pines, and many exotic plants, as well as land with olive trees for about 1 hectare.
The main villa, overlooking Paraggi Bay, has a spectacular sea view and dominates the coastline with Brown Castle in the background; it is on two levels with the living room with a fireplace, lounge, dining room, kitchen, and bathrooms on the ground floor.
Upstairs, three bedrooms with three bathrooms and the dressing room.

The annex consists of a small detached structure with two small bedrooms and a bathroom.
The views are truly unique and impressive, with rare double exposure to both the Bay of Paraggi and Portofino and the Bay of Santa Margherita Ligure.
One parking space is available with a real possibility of purchasing more. In addition, a beautiful swimming pool can be installed.
The ancient “Portus Delphini” has very remote origins, related to its location that made it a safe landing place for ships. Its location and enchanting nature have earned it the nickname “Pearl of the World.” Portofino has been a destination for VIPs and Stars for many decades. This charming little fishing village has been visited by princes, royalty, actors, models and sportsmen. Since the time of the great influx of foreign guests, first British and then German, Portofino’s economy has been closely linked to tourism. The historic “Piazzetta” overlooked by public eateries, stores, boutiques and other businesses, was in July 2012 recognized as an Italian Historical Local, the first and only certificate issued by the association of the same name for its historical and cultural value.
