    Enjoy la dolce vita in Portofino

    The jewel of the Italian Riviera, Portofino is a favorite of the world's jet set. This enchanting town enjoys a sheltered position on the Ligurian coast, framed by the tree-filled hillsides that stretch up behind it and several attractive beaches close to town. In summer, its pretty harbor is crowded with luxury yachts. The pastel-hued houses that cluster along the harbor and the tiny cobbled streets are home to upscale boutiques and waterfront restaurants serving mouthwatering Italian food – from home cooking to fine dining, as well as delicious gelato.

    Idle days in Portofino

    Passing time when staying at one of the Portofino vacation rentals is all about living the good life. Enjoy a glass of chilled white wine by the water's edge, take a table in one of the highly regarded restaurants to tuck into fresh pasta, or sip a coffee by the picturesque Piazzetta and watch the people go by. Hiring a boat is a wonderful day excursion, allowing you to follow the craggy Ligurian coast to explore beaches that are only accessible on water. Or, if you are feeling a bit more active, explore the coastline by SUP or kayak.

    Discover historical Portofino

    From your Portofino vacation rental, you can go for walks along the narrow, cobbled streets that stretch back from the harbor up the hillside. The flower-filled square in front of the little church of San Giorgio offers a beautiful view of the town, its harbor and the sparkling, turquoise waters of the Ligurian Sea. Further up the hillside, well-marked hiking paths take you up into Parco Naturale Regionale di Portofino or to Castello Brown, a 16th Century Genoese fortress with a small museum, peaceful gardens and wonderful views. The nearby city of Genoa can be reached by water taxi, and its historic center and aquarium make for a pleasant day trip.

    Portofino through the year

    Portofino is busiest in summer, when Hollywood A-listers and Europe'e elite moor their yachts in the picturesque harbor and the cruise ship tours come ashore. In these sunny months, the beaches are at their best, but the streets heave with visitors and many of the restaurants will need to be booked in advance. At either end of the season, the streets quieten considerably, and choosing a Portofino vacation rental means you can enjoy the late summer sun or early spring sunshine in relative peace. The shops and restaurants will remain open until the deep winter months.

    Explore Liguria from Portofino

    The coastline is beautiful and taking a boat tour is highly recommended. Explorers should also make an effort to go inland and follow the coastal paths through scented hillsides to enjoy ravishing sea views. The picturesque towns of Cinque Terre can be reached by boat from Portofino and this is another popular excursion. Closer to Portofino, the beaches of San Fruttuoso and Paraggi provide beautiful stretches of golden sand, warm Mediterranean sea, and little beachside tavernas.
