La Dolce Vita as it should be. Follow in the footsteps of the film stars from the golden days and experience the pinnacle of Italian glamour. This charming hotel is set in a beautifully restored former 16th-century monastery, on a lush green hillside overlooking the picture-postcard village of Portofino and the sparkling Mediterranean beyond. Alongside spectacular views of the sea, the rooms and suites are elegantly decorated with artistic flourishes and soft pastels to combine traditional Italian elements with a modern twist. Suites are ideal for larger groups, with panoramic views of Portofino Bay, spacious marble bathrooms, separate living spaces and private gardens, perfect for soaking up the Italian sunshine. The Dolce Vita Villa offers the ultimate combination of luxury alongside plenty of space and a completely secluded and peaceful stay in Portofino. This quaint Italian fishing village has long been associated with a rich history, culture, and architecture, and this sophisticated hotel remains the ultimate destination for its star-studded list of former visitors.
By day, while away the hours at the exclusive Bagni Fiore beach, experience the excellent marine life in the bay, or pop for a refreshing dip in the saltwater infinity pool. The hotel has a variety of exciting activities for exploring the local area, such as kayaking along the coast and cycling along the headland to Portofino’s prime spot for tasting local wines against the sparkling backdrop of the sea. Alternatively, take time to truly relax at the wellness centre, with outdoor massages accompanied by the sound of the ocean. Sunset is the perfect time to take a romantic cruise on the hotel’s private boat to a delightful bay that is only accessible by sea or footpath and enjoy an idyllic candlelit dinner. Authentic regional specialties are served in the hotel restaurant, either in the elegant dining room, or alfresco on the delightful terrace with sensational views overlooking the bay. Alternatively, taste a rustic pizza or tuck into a buffet of local delicacies at the poolside restaurant.
