In the beautiful landscape of Porto Venere, Villa Venere, a private mansion dating back to the beginning of 1900, overlooks the bay of Porto Venere and the Palmaria Island. The Villa, a gem of rare beauty on this picturesque side of the Ligurian coast, sits behind white painted gates directly on the sea shore.

The Villa, entirely renewed with great accuracy and elegance in recent years, is surrounded by nearly 3000 sq.m. of terraced ground and is delimited by Via Garibaldi and Via dell’Olivo where there is the road approach to its private parking and to its second entrance. The Villa is equipped with WiFi.

The Villa is surrounded by a nice terrace paved with white and grey Carrara marbles and 1m. higher than the below garden which is characterized by centuries-old carob trees, palms, olive trees, myrtus, buxus and pittosforum.

In the elegant dining-room 8 people may sit around the square English table. The large and beautiful kitchen is well equipped with all sort of appliances. From a passage, decorated with a nice tromp l’oeil, sweet memory of the family’s beloved dog “Tobia”, you get to a small bathroom and also to the beautiful marble stair which leads to the upper floor. From nearly all rooms it is possible to walk out on the wide terrace surrounding the villa and the numerous french windows enable to continuously admire the garden and the sea even from the inside.

About the area

Porto Venere is a town and comune (municipality) located on the Ligurian coast of Italy in the province of La Spezia. It comprises the three villages of Fezzano, Le Grazie and Porto Venere, and the three islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. In 1997 Porto Venere and the villages of Cinque Terre were designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The village lies at the southern end of a peninsula, which, breaking away from the jagged coastline of the Riviera di Levante, forming the western tip of the Gulf of La Spezia. At the end of this peninsula are three small islands: Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto; only Palmaria Island, which lies directly opposite the village of Porto Venere beyond a narrow strait, is partially inhabited.
