Explore Portofino with Elegant Resorts
A firm favourite of the jet-set, the 'great and the good' flock to Portofino on the Italian Riviera; a picturesque, half-moon-shaped seaside village with pastel-coloured houses lining its harbour, chic shops, excellent restaurants, elegant cafés and fabulous hotels. Its crystalline green water reveals a myriad of aquatic life, while the castle sits on the hill overlooking the village. The headland is surprisingly quiet; a protected park with pine and chestnut woods, fragrant plants and flowers. There are also opportunities for hiking, diving and boating. Portofino isn't an obvious family resort, as it is most geared to style-loving couples wanting a quiet break.
