About the property

Apartments in Villa between Portofino and Genova - Peaceful Location

Villa Mael is a wonderful three storey house on the most prominent point of the Riviera where you can enjoy from Portofino to the lighthouse of Genova. Stefano and Elena, the owners who live on the ground floor, decided to share with guests the top portion of their villa. The apartment has its own entrance and it enjoys a good privacy. The apartment has two bedrooms at the first floor each with its own bathroom, and a very panoramic wide balcony; on the top floor there is the fully equipped kitchen with one more bedroom and a big bathroom.

lovely place

  • 4 of 5

Large spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Beautiful location and very handsome. The views were spectacular. The vista was along the coast from the Portofino peninsula to Genova and beyond. The host and hostess were very charming, friendly and helpful.

The only little downside was the small, dark, out of the way kitchen and lounge area. This was located in an attic with only 1 small Dow window. Because of the beautiful location it seemed a shame that we couldn't enjoy the view during meals. We were 3 men staying there and we used one of the bedrooms that had the terrace for our breakfast. We certainly will stay there again. It deserved 5 stars if not for the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comment. We would like to have a living room with a nice biggest window on the sea and we are thinking of doing but it is not easy to have the permissions; fortunately in beautiful weather our guests can eat and stay on the terrace near the small pool, which has a lovely view over sea. Thanks again
