Our Philosophy & Details

Thank you for visiting this page! At Gioiellino di Portofino, we believe that finding the right vacation accommodations is personal. For this reason, we want to share some important details about the property and surrounding area.

It’s important to us that we are the right ‘fit’ for you and your vacation dreams. Our location is a bit remote and best suited for people who are physically fit and like the outdoors. We are surrounded by nature and hiking trails and are only 1Km away from the seaside of Portofino. The road up the mountain has direct access to our house, however, it is restricted to residents only. No taxis or delivery services are permitted to use the roadway without a special permit from the local police office.

We offer free pick-up and drop-off when you Check-in and out of the premises. Any additional transport to and from Portofino town or Santa Margherita can be arranged at an additional cost. If you arrive by car, we suggest that you park in Paraggi, we have a special rate of €25/day.

We are also happy to pick you up at the Santa Margherita/Portofino train station. If you arrive by air, there is an inexpensive Airport shuttle service from the Genoa airport. Check the schedule carefully as the timetable may be seasonal.

Tarifs are:

  • €5, one-way, to, or from Portofino,
  • €6, one-way, to, or from Paraggi,
  • €10 to, or from Santa Margherita, or
  • €20/day, VIP package for unlimited transport within a 10Km radius, all between the hours of 8:00 to 23:00.
    Note: On many occasion, we also need to go into town to shop for supplies and are happy to offer a ride, free of charge, if it fits into your desired timeframe.

We have cats! Two big Ragdolls, Coco and Zen. They are in the house and outside in the garden. We do our best to keep them out of the guest bedroom, but they are free to roam in the common areas and so if you have any allergies, you may want to rethink your plans.

We have a bar fridge in the common area that is stocked with wine, beer and soft drinks. You will be provided with the key and a price list. Your purchases will be added to your final bill at the end of your stay. Coffee, hot or cold, and special cocktails can be made available upon request.

Food & Dining
Is included and served anytime from 8:00 – 10:30. Please advise us what time best suits you.

A dining table is made available to you outside on the terrace for all your meals. In inclement weather, there is also a table available in the common area inside the house.

Lunch, Aperitivo & Dinner:
There are many great bars & restaurants in the region that we could recommend and we are happy to call and make reservations for you. The nearby Mulino offers local dishes and delivers to our location.

You may use our outdoor BBQ.

If you choose to buy prepared food and bring it back to the house, we are happy to store it for you in our private kitchen and supply you with plates and cutlery when you choose to eat. We ask that you kindly respect our house rules and refrain from eating in the guest bedroom.

If you would like to have an aperitivo on the terrace, we can prepare some nice snacks for you to enjoy. Prices will be listed in the bar menu.

Please respect that the house is strictly a non-smoking environment. You may smoke outdoors, preferably far away from any dining areas on the terrace.

Beach towels are specifically made available to you and we kindly ask that you use our outdoor clothesline and pegs provided, to hang them, and any swimsuits, to dry. Please respect our hardwood floors and refrain from leaving damp or wet towels on the bedroom floor.
