The villa is located on the mountain of Portofino, in one of the best positions, suspended over the village’s small bay and with an unparalleled view of the sea.
It is a 20th-century building and was intended as the residence home of a wealthy Genoese family, unlike many of the other houses on the mountain, which before becoming residential dwellings were rustic or farmhouses.
The access is very convenient, a rare case for villas on the Portofino Mountain; in fact, the residence can be reached directly by car and there is covered parking.
In addition to this, the property has provided itself with two garage parking spaces in the center of Portofino.
The villa has undergone a very accurate integral renovation in 2010, with the use of fine materials and excellently accessorized.
It is fully furnished and the ‘furniture was conceived and created to measure.
Excellently distributed on two levels, the ground floor offers a spectacular living area consisting of a large entrance hall, living room, dining room, office, kitchen, laundry room, staff room, two bathrooms and a panoramic terrace: on the upper floor a comfortable sleeping area with three splendid suites.
This property reserves to its guests independence and privacy with an annex depandance.
Villa Peonia includes 3,000 sq. m. of fully fenced and well-kept land, with lawn, a beautiful rose garden, a vegetable garden, several fruit trees and other plants and flowers.
Superlative is the location of the swimming pool equipped with changing room, created in an overhang, giving the feeling of being suspended above Portofino and towards the infinity of the sea.
The ancient “Portus Delphini” has very remote origins, which are related to its position and made it a safe harbour for ships. Thanks to its location and its charming nature, Portofino earned the nickname “Pearl of the world.” It has been a destination for VIPs and stars for many decades. Portofino is visited daily by princes, kings, actors, models, and sport stars from all around the world. From the time of the large influx of foreign visitors, first the British and then the Germans, Portofino’s economy was closely linked to tourism. The characteristic “Piazzetta” – which is overlooked by bars, restaurants, shops, boutiques, and other commercial activities – was recognized in July of 2012 as Historical place of Italy, the first and only certificate issued by the homonymous association for its historical and cultural value.
This exclusive property is 400m from the sea, 5 km from Santa Margherita Ligure, 45 km from Genoa airport and 170 km from Milan.
