The house has been fully restored in 2016 and it is tastefully furnished, with very comfort provided, cooling aircon for the hot summer months and proper heating for cooler winter days.
Classy Santa Margherita Ligure, or simply Santa, as the wealthy Milanese, who favor it for their second homes and relaxing weekends, affectionately like to call it, is to the RIVIERA LIGURE what Nice or Cannes are to the French one: a winter warming location for when the weather gets dreary and cold in distant homelands, a chic beach choice during the warmer months for both Italian and Foreigners alike. Exclusive Portofino is only 7km away; add an extra five for charming Camogli, while for lovely Sestri Levante, pretty Chiavari and busy Rapallo just consider a few extra minutes. For a day excursion, the stunning Cinque Terre are only over an hour away by car.
Contrary to the French Riviera, Santa Margherita is within easy reach from two major Italian cities, the closest being nearby Genoa with its airport, with its famous and stunning harbor designed by Archistar Renzo Piano, with its beautiful XVI, XVII and XVIII century palaces, its Churches, Museums, Art Galleries, its very picturesque “carruggi”, as Genoeses call the city’s old and narrow alleys. The added bonus is the local cuisine, famous for its Trofie with Pesto, its Pansotti with Sugo di Noci, to name just a few.
Should one miss some shopping-time –not that Santa does not have a range of tempting trendy boutiques-fashionable Milan is only one hour and a half by train, worth a hop to indulge further into the Italian Lifestyle.
