Luxury real estate in Portofino, Italian Riviera
Portofino is a vacation resort with picturesque harbor and famous for its association with many celebrity visitors. Luxury real estate in Portofino resides on the shoreline hilltops of the village where magnificent villas offer breathtaking views to the Mediterranean and the harbor.
Portofino is located in the province of Genoa in the Italian Riviera, a narrow coast side strip from the border of French Riviera up until the border of Tuscany in the east. It’s a true postcard village with colorful and elegant buildings surrounding the fairytale-like harbor.
Portofino was made famous by the song “Love in Portofino” performed by Fred Buscaglione, released 1958. It’s also the inspiration for the sea-side town around the harbor at Tokyo DisneySea in Chiba, Japan. A full scale replica of the Portofino Bay is at Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando USA. It’s been featured at Top Gear, Andrea Bocelli recorded one of his concert DVD’s at the village and the singer Kyle Minogue has vacationed there several times.
Such is the beauty of Portofino that it is considered one of the perfect samples of human construction in absolutely breathtaking natural setting. Because of its location and very limited amount of land, available luxury real estate in Portofino is scarce and in high demand. Beautifully renovated villas on the hillsides around the port are constructed using finest materials and feature luxury amenities while preserving the historic and natural palette of the village.
