Description from manager
Heaven on earth
The steep and narrow rocky ledge nearthis property harbor is one of the jewels in Europe's crown and is among the most exclusive residential areas throughout Italy. The Italian Riviera is a picturesque strip of beaches, colorful fishing villages, and green hillsides that stretches from France to Tuscany. The promontory ofthis property is a protected natural area, with a mild climate and dramatic scenery of high cliffs plunging into the sea. The area is a happy mix of glamour and natural beauty set against a backdrop of sparkling turquoise sea. On this grassy rock, we find the Villathis property.
This gigantic rock, towering up from the water, is shared with only a few other exclusive villas, the Castello Brown, a lighthouse and the famous church abovethis property. A short walk brings you to the famous central piazza ofthis property (20 minutes on foot or 10 minutes using a lift) with chic designer shops, exquisite seafood restaurants, and marina lined with grand yachts. Explore the resorts of the Riviera - Santa Margherita (4 km) and lively Rapallo, with excellent shopping. Continue on to the Cinque Terre, five cliffside villages with hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Visit the superb museums and delightful markets of Genoa (30 min.), where narrow alleys wind their way down to one of the most vital harbors of the Mediterranean. Visit the popular resort of Forte dei Marmi or the Cararra marble quarries, where Michelangelo got his pure white marble.
Despite the proximity of the colorful and lively harbor ofthis property, the villa is tucked away and protected from the crowds: the house has private access to the sea and can hardly be seen from the road. A private lift connects the harbor with a walking path that leads to the lighthouse. Villathis property is located along this path, about 300 meters from the lift. Along this footpath with shady greenery you will find the entrance gate and a stairway down through a beautiful rock garden to the terrace, shaded by century-old wisteria vines. Although the house is situated high above the sea (20 m), the water is in walking distance: a private flight of 112 steep stone and wood steps leads down to a rocky platform - just the place for sliding into the water to cool off after a sunbathe.
