Exceptional villas curated by our experts
While you may not have heard of this crescent-shaped region in northwest Italy, you’ll soon recognise its arresting vintage glamour - reminiscent of that of Cannes or Monaco. Discover scenery so dramatic it inspired great writers and artists, with Belle Époque hamlets haphazardly cascading down the cliff face, giving way to pockets of sand at the water's edge.
Explore the five famous fishing villages of the Cinque Terre, from stylish Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure, to Riviera di Levante, where you’ll find pebbly turquoise coves backed by dramatic cliffs and pines.
Embrace old-world Hollywood, hugging the vertiginous coastal roads in a vintage Ferrari, or stroll the famous ‘lovers walk’ through all five coastal villages, pausing for a much deserved Aperol Spritz at one of the many fine bars and chic restaurants. Allegedly created as a hideout for pirates, make your own hideaway atop the folds of the coast. Dine al fresco under a canopy dripping with lemons, a cool glass of the local grape in hand as the sweet almond and olive-scented breeze drifts over you.
