Your Hostess

meHello and Welcome!

My name is Leah. I am a Canadian gal who ended up living in one of the most beautiful places in the world! Married to an Italian sailor, we met while we worked onboard a cruise ship together.

We built our dream on Portofino Mountain, in a Villa that has been in his family for a century!

I worked in hospitality for many years, in Canada, the Caribbean, and then for various cruise lines over a span of 20 years.

I welcome you to experience Gioiellino di Portofino, our vision of a perfect vacation, where you can stay in a real home and have an authentic Italian experience.

Our motto is to treat all our guests with an open heart and an open mind.

I hope you come visit us soon!

Ci vediamo subito!

Gioiellino is a proud supporter if LGBT rights.
