Our Philosophy & Details

Giologorough copy

Gioiellino di Portofino, we believe that finding the right holiday accommodations is all about finding the best ‘fit’ to match your personal lifestyle, goals, dreams and expectations. We strive to create an atmosphere that is comfortable, relaxing and unobtrusive whilst being readily available to anticipate your needs.

Our unique location sets us apart from the competition because we are secluded from the crowded streets and hustle and bustle of a popular destination and we can offer a boutique experience because of our small size.

We are situated inside the protected natural park of Portofino mountain and only 1 Km from the beautiful seaside village of Portofino. Our target guests are those who are physically fit and enjoy hiking and nature.

The road to our Villa is reserved to resideEZnts only and therefore coming and going during your stay would either be on foot, or by transport by us at an additional fee. Note: taxis, scooter and rental cars are also not permitted.

The home is shared with two long-haired, Ragdoll cats, Coco and Zen. We try our best to keep them out of the guest bedroom, however they are free to wander in the common areas of the house. If you have any pet allergies, this would not be the best location for you. There is also a small, friendly, resident dog, Yuri, who lives next door and can be found on the terrace and surrounding area.

Transportation will be provided for check-in and check-out, from local parking facilities. We offer our guests a discounted price of €25/day in Paraggi (pending availability).

Shuttle services can be provided to Portofino by the sea, Paraggi, or Santa Margherita at the following rates:

  • One-way to/from Portofino €5*,
