Villa Baia Blu

Recco/Portofino, Liguria, Italy
Sleeps 12 / 6 bedrooms/ 8 bathrooms

The Collina di Megli, today an prevalently residential area overlooking the sea and dominating the town of Recco, was, in the distant past, an agricultural area mainly made up of olive groves. Villa Baia Blu was originally a farmhouse divided into two parts, the main house and the annex, the caretaker's residence. The two-storey villa was completely renovated a few years ago, using high quality modern materials while still maintaining part of the original, period ones. The huge kitchen, with the original majolica tiles and the antique "runfò genovesi" (Genoese ovens) combined with modern equipment, represents the most striking example of the perfect combination of old and functional modern. Thanks to its dominant position, you have a breathtaking view over the entire Golfo Paradiso, the town of Recco and its beach but, above all, over the last headland of the Monte di Portofino, in the Natural Marine Park. The villa is surrounded by a large private park with the vibrant green of the lawn contrasting with the intense blue of the sea which the entire property overlooks. The splendid swimming pool, too, lies in a panoramic position over the gulf, with a view of the green natural park of Monte di Portofino.

Villa Baia Blu is located in the most residential area of Recco, a recognised food capital whose town centre, full of restaurants, shops and commercial activities of all kinds, is just over a kilometre from the villa. As well as the bathing establishments on the small, but pleasant beach, in recent years Recco has become a primary destination for surfers from all over Italy. During high season, numerous boats leaving from the quay of Recco connect the most important centres of the Riviera di Levante; the old, unspoiled seaside borgo of Camogli, the Abbey of San Fruttuoso, reachable only by sea or on foot, Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, the Cinque Terre as well as the old port of Genoa, which has the largest aquarium in Europe. The motorway exit of Recco is only 3 km away and permits easy travel by car to all the tourist resorts of Liguria, Piedmont, Lombardy and Tuscany.
