About the property

Presenting the property is not easy.

How do you describe an atmosphere that perfectly combines nature with the work of man and history.

Moreover, a strong, luxuriant, overbearing nature and the works of man who followed nature without distorting it but grasping its beauty, thus creating small oases of pleasure, wellbeing of the soul and so much beauty.

Simply define the romantic place is not correct because it might seem tedious, but it's for those who know him, really romantic in the classic sense of the word. The unique landscape, the beauty of the sunsets and sunrises, the lights, the scents of jasmine, lemon trees, gardenias, camellias and roses that surround you when you climb the stairs to get are simply intoxicating. The intense and strong colors in harmony are a joy to the eye, incredible colors, with unimaginable contrasts, sky and sea worthy only of a great painter's palette. The noise of the wind and the sea .The sounds of the birds, the little robin to superb buzzard. The mischievous squirrels that you pull the small pine cones, The silvery olive grove that vibrates to the sea breeze. The houses so simple and elegant. The sea so close but you see from above in its majesty. A place to live is a dream to even harmony to your soul.

Let's try it and let's start:

When you arrive you will find to the right the entrance to the property and to the left, just crossing the street a ladder that gives access to the sea.

To get to the street level property along before a tunnel dug in the mountain about 100 m long. from where there is access to a lift the travel of just over one minute. Arrived on the second floor you go down and you are in a lodge that has already the idea of ​​the landscape that you will enjoy arriving home. From the loggia it always takes another tunnel dug in the mountain and leads to a second elevator, the distance a little minute. Going down to the first floor there is a large terrace which offers another beautiful view. It goes to the right you pass a headband and there appears the property all fenced by scalloped walls. You enter through a wrought-iron gate and after two flights of stairs here we are.

The houses of the property La Paraggina are three: the principal, the first to be coming across, spread over two floors, and the dependence on a single floor. The appearance of both is typical Genoese in addition to the structure by the dark pink colors almost brick with white or gray lines where stand to color contrast the designs, always typical, of the Greek or the rhombus. the same theme is developed for all the crenellated walls of the large terraced garden surrounding the houses.

The core of the main house, as date back to the building up of the Abbey of Saint Jerome "the Cervara" (from the Latin word which means Silvas forests) whose property the property in 1300 was part of it. The main house still has very thick walls in stone and you can see from the niches that surround the windows of the first floor. The fixtures made from wood was the caretaker's house of Cervara. The dependence was the storage of agricultural tools especially for the care of the olive trees and the collection of the famous oil. A part of the immense and centenary olive grove of Cervara is now part of the property and you can enjoy the taste of this blond nectar today. The property has followed the long and sometimes turbulent history of the Abbey made of prestigious moments, as well as religious, of high culture and moments scarred from Turkish invasions and internal wars first of all between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines in 1420. With the passing of time you get to the end of 1800 and the property it was bought by a British prestigious family that builds and expands other properties on the headland. The villa is of a high level and is the only work that is performed. You can still see the high vaulted ceilings and barrel that are strictly structured with reeds and original to the ground floor where there is a large living room and kitchen, and beside the stairs a small bathroom on one side and a fireplace on the other. The stairs lead to the second floor where there are three large bedrooms with three bathrooms and each window a different and fascinating sight. In the living room corner dedicated to the dining room is a large window showing a pudinga Wall (local stone) that the evening lit brings out the elegant color of the stone.

The dependence, which is not rented, on one floor has small bedrooms and a bathroom. Here, too, the show is unique. In front of each house there is a terrace that allows both of you can comfortably dine or relax in comfortable armchairs. between the two houses there is a large terrace which is also furnished and a building that encloses the BBQ. Splendid festivities were held on that terrazzone the years or centuries now. Famous people of culture, finance took turns as guests of various hosts, few, the English family known, from the thirties to the early seventies a known family of Genoese ship-owners and the current owners. One of the most famous guests who also stayed there is the famous writer Oscar Wilde. Formerly, the Monte di Portofino (which goes from Santa Margherita in San Fruttuoso) Silvas was called because, like today, is characterized by this nature especially olive trees, oaks, cypresses and pine trees which later also by the high hills Monte di Portofino arriving by sea. The dependence of Paraggina dominates, from its position, both the Gulf of Tigullio from Santa Margherita in the Cinque Terre, is the Cervara same. The view is open and full of light, joyous with the sea that seems to touch him, with the joy of beautiful yachts anchored, the same view is also from the lawn and terrace set up as a Solarium.

The main house overlooking the bay of Paraggi and the entrance to the harbor of Portofino. Here the view is more impressive and features true that silence envelops you.

This is because the property is on the top of the Bay of Paraggi promontory allowing a 180 degree sea on one side and a 180 degree view of the forest and other promontories. Unique view being at the top (about 100 meters above sea level) and in the green of nature, but with the sea so close that almost seems to be on a boat out at sea.

To me and then the property is 2 km from the famous square of Portofino reached on foot or by public or private transport and 4 km from Santa Margherita Ligure always reachable on foot, by car or by public transport, the wonderful and the Ligurian seaside town with its harbor still the fascination of fishing boats anchored near Yacht important and provides everything from bars, to restaurants to supermarkets, the train and bus station and ferry wonderful trips to the discovery of the Riviera, 6 km from the highway whose entrance is at Rapallo. A Paraggi there is only so as store a tobacconist newsagent habitually benefits from the proximity and the variety of offerings that has any kind of Santa Margherita for the purchases. Portofino, despite having also grocery stores, pharmacy, tobacco shop is more for luxury purchases there being present many Boutique of the best known brands in the world. To me, at 0 km, it has the opportunity to offer organized beach facilities as well as a privileged corner that is in front of the main gate of the houses. The sea is a rocky coastline so intense colors and Paraggi Beach although small, offers the opportunity to enjoy the feel of the sea.
