La dolce vita...
Gorgeous Villa , overlooking the unique Paraggi beach.
Surrounded by a garden of heaven, beautiful walk to the beach or to famous Portofino.
Despite the breathtaking location, our Paraggi villa is affordable and sleeps 10 people in 5 bedrooms .
Both the location and house are first class.
This is an old historic house located on the ground floor of the Villa,
There is a main living room with antique tile inlays, opening to a gorgeous terrace surrounded by bougainvilleas and olive trees, with a spectacular ocean view, and an outside covered dining room.
On the right wing of the house we have:
-1 Queen Bedroom with stunning views
-1 Twin bedroom with 2 twin beds.
On the left wing of the house we have:
-1 Queen bedroom
-1 Full Bedroom with private 1/2 bathroom
-1 large kids bedroom with 3 twin beds (or 1 queen and 1 twin)
The Villa has a gorgeous path surrounded by grapes, orange trees and flowers that leads to the beach. Also a shared Pool with the 2 other Villas located in the property!!
Keep in mind that the path to the beach is a steep hill and it has steps and dirt pathways. It's not suited for people with disabilities. The road to the villa is narrow and curvy, best for compact cars.
Other Amenities: The property is located in the middle of a natural park, so that there are many wonderful paths to explore along the cilff and up on the mountain with a breathtaking view of the sea.There's a shuttle every 20 minutes that takes you to Portofino or santa Margherita.If you like food and shopping in Portofino you can find the best quality of them in a romantic set. Here you will have all the facilities you need, like banks, pharmacies, hairdressers, tourists office, taxis, grocer's shops and post office.
Other Activities: You can walk down to the Paraggi beach, the villa's gate is just across from the beach entrance, and is the best one in that area. From Paraggi you can choose to walk,there is a delightful walkway surrounded by the park,overlooking the cliff, or drive to Portofino, where you find restaurants, fancy yacths and stores. By train you have to stop at the Santa Margherita Ligure station and catch a shuttle to Paraggi right in front of the station (every 20 mins). Paraggi is 3km away from Santa Margherita Ligure where you can find every kind of shops, facilities (hospital, train, supermarket) and the traditional market on tuesdays. A famous golf and tennis club is located in Rapallo,just 7Km far from Paraggi. By plane: airport Cristoforo Colombo in Genova (45km) or airport Galileo Galilei in Pisa (150km) or Milano Linate (about 2 hours by car).
My family owned this property since the 1800, and it's pretty much still the same.
I'm a real estate agent and I live in Carmel, Ca.
Paraggi is very exclusive, known for having attracted celebrities and very traditional Italian families since it's surrounded by Villas and Castles.
A walk brings you to the famous harbor of Portofino (15 minutes on foot, 5 minutes with a lift) - this fine harbor, where grand yachts lie at anchor, where VIPs stroll along the promenade, where exquisite fish restaurants and elegant designer shops decorate the picturesque bay.
As always with Portofino, it is best to arrive with a large yacht. If this is not possible, take the train to Santa Margherita and then a taxi to Portofino. There is also a bus service between Santa Margherita and Portofino (travels in both directions, which runs every 20 minutes, depending on the season): Portofino can be reached from S. Margherita by bus in 10 minutes.
There is a ferry from Portofino to S. Margherita/Rapallo/5 Terre/Camogli/S. Fruttuoso. Water taxis are 100 Euros per hour. Pick up service at Genova airport can be arranged (about 100 Euros, reservation at least 10 days before arrival is required).
We recently stayed here with our young family (2 x toddlers & 1 infant) & absolutely loved the villa/pool - it was extremely spacious & in a fantastic location. The villa itself was very clean & well maintained. Our kids loved the beach at Paraggi (down the hill & across the road) & we enjoyed being situated between Santa Margherita Ligure & Portofino. We will absolutely be back to stay at Villa Ucelli. Lastly, Cristina & Mik were very pleasant to deal with.
We absolutely loved staying here! It was perfect for our group as the bedrooms are set away from the living and kitchen areas. The place has such a magical and lovely feeling. We felt very relaxed there and it was easy to take the beautiful walk to Portofino, or the bus to Portofino or the other cities along the coast.
We had a splendid time!
Such a perfect place to stay. So beautiful and with such character. A beautiful walk to Portofino and the bus ride to Santa Margharita and Repallo was easy. The communication was great and we received assistance very quickly when we needed it.
Couldn't have been more perfect place to stay. Great location right above a beautiful beach, 2 minute walk to bus going to Portofino or Santa Margherita. It was spacious, relaxing, clean, well appointed and so homey. The owner and property manager were incredibly helpful and easy to reach. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Our group of 8 (4 couples) spent a wonderful 6 days here enjoying both the space and privacy of the villa as well as many day trips to surrounding locations. The villa was well equipped to cater for 8 people but we also enjoyed meals in the varied restaurants just a 5 min walk down the steps. The pool was a welcome refresh after a long day out and of course the views from the outdoor areas were spectacular.
We stayed in the villa for four days last summer (2012), and all I can say is I wish I could return to it. It was one of the best experiences of the trip. The location couldn't be better - a five minute walk from the emerald green waters of Paraggi (one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy), away from all the buzzing vespas and cars, but close enough to be able to go back and forth from the villa to the beach multiple times. The villa is surrounded by plush greenery and beautifully colored plants and peace and quiet are the only sounds you hear from the patio.
The house itself is solidly built and has a lot of character and history and we found it to be spacious and comfortable. All the necessities were there and if anything was needed Cristina and Michele were always a phone call away and very kind and helpful. The photos don't do justice to the beauty of the villa and its surroundings. I highly recommend it for vacation travelers who want to explore the area around Portofino and the Cinque Terre without spending all of their time in the most touristy areas.
