The view is of the deep valleys, the olive groves, chestnuts and the Piazza of Portofino and the Church of Saint Gregory, with the Mar Ligure and Marina of Portofino beyond.  The main house has a large outside dining area under a portico, covered in wisteria, adapted for outside dining and barbecues. In the garden there is a separate guest house, with a double bedroom, kitchen and shower room.  There is also a large garden shed .The main house has sitting room with kitchen, the kitchen has a four door fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.

The picturesque  fishing village of Portofino is noted as one of the most romantic places in the world, it has attracted artists, intellectuals, aristocrats and film stars for generations.  The Commune of Portofino has 460 inhabitants, it is a noted conservation area, with the Riserva Marina Portofino and the Parco Nazionale del Portofino.  The zone is  highly protected, in the park the only access permitted by the Council of Portofino is by 2 or 3 wheeled vehicles, in fact by the classic "ape" Italiano or by motorbike. The house comes with a parking space in the main square from which the house must be approached by the conventionalised vehicle (ape), which will be provided by the owner for the length of the stay. The house has its own dedicated staff, the gardener will fetch and carry, do the shopping and drive (price €25 per hour). The cleaner is available to cook and clean on request. There are over 70 kilometres of mountain walks.    Here lives wild boar, falcons, squirrels, butterflies, frogs, foxes and badgers.  The old mule paths lead mainly to religious centres (S Fruttuoso, S Nicolò, La Carvara).  Equally famous is the marina of Portofino and the Riserva Marina with its caves and corals and superb marine life. The owner will advise on renting a boat on request.
