PRIVATE STRUCTURE (Lease only - CITRA CODE: 010054-LT-0795). Called "the Pearl of the Tigullio", from the name of the gulf that it overlooks, Santa Margherita Ligure is one of the most beloved resorts on the Riviera and it is here that Villa Bellavista, living up to its name, will astound guests with its enchanting sea views. Immersed in a large park of 3000 sq m on the hill of Nozarego, Villa Bellavista is a sheltered and exclusive oasis of peace and silence just minutes from the iconic places of the international jet set, Portofino above all. Not only the designer boutiques, the renowned restaurants and the famous club that has written the history of nightlife in Liguria, but also the romantic atmospheres of the seaside villages and their historic venues which still today act as a driving force for a refined and elite tourism. These include the Santa Margherita Municipal Fish Market, whose architecture recalls the typical Middle Eastern-style fish market; open from 5pm with the arrival of the fishing boats and the unloading of the catch; it is here that the most knowledgeable and gourmet tourist will find the renowned Santa Margherita purple prawn which, together with its cousin the Mediterranean red prawn, contends for the title of best prawn in the world. The comfort of the welcoming rooms of the villa and annex, the quiet of the large, lush garden with its beautiful swimming pool and the convivial relaxing moments in the shade of the veranda and gazebo will make your holiday at Villa Bellavista truly memorable.


Villa Bellavista consists of the main building and an annex a short distance away, both on two floors. MAIN VILLA. The entrance is on the first floor which is composed of the living room, dining room, kitchen and guest bathroom. A 16-step staircase descends to the hallway on the ground floor with two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, two bathrooms with shower, a bathroom with tub and a multipurpose room with an extra single bed and access to the garden. ANNEX. The ground floor includes a kitchen with two French windows for direct access to the garden, a single bedroom with a bunk bed and direct access to the garden, a bathroom with shower and a hallway from where a 17-step staircase goes up to the first floor, also accessible from the garden via a 12-step staircase, where a small hallway leads to a double bedroom with a large terrace and a bathroom with shower.


Villa Bellavista is immersed in a splendid park of about 3,000 sq m, arranged on several levels with large terraces and soft lawn surfaces where the blue of the plumbago and the various shades of the bougainvillea and hydrangeas stand out; in the midst of this enchantment of colours, the centuries-old olive trees reign supreme and are the undisputed protagonists together with the orange and lemon trees. In the large lawn in the centre of the park is the beautiful swimming pool which is reached down stone steps or an easy ramp; next to it is a beautiful round table for poolside dining. On the lower level of the pool, in the shade of the olive trees, there is a beautiful bowling green where you can organize fun summer tournaments with friends. On a panoramic terrace in the park, a lovely gazebo equipped with table and chairs dominates the scene; from here you can enjoy a splendid view of the renowned marina of Santa Margherita, while the lovely patio in front of the kitchen is equally inviting, the perfect place for your first morning coffee. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The rectangular swimming pool, lined in blue PVC and measuring 11 x 5 m with a maximum depth of 1.80 m, is located in the centre of the park and surrounded by a large lawn, a wonderful solarium equipped with sunbeds that you can choose whether to place in the shade of a tree or under an umbrella. The chlorine purification system guarantees clean, clear water and the internal lighting system creates evocative nocturnal atmospheres. The pool is available from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Villa Bellavista is located in Nozarego in a dominant and hilly position with respect to the centre of Santa Margherita Ligure, an area that belongs to the Protected Marine Area of Portofino whose coastline shines in all its enchantment: wonderful views and small inlets with vegetation lapping the sea, submerged rocks that rapidly descend to great depths, favouring a wealth of microhabitats rarely found in the Mediterranean. The villa is easily reached by car, via the A12 motorway, 6 km from the Rapallo exit or 13 km from the Recco exit, or by train from the Santa Margherita Ligure train station, 2 km away, while the 877 line bus stop is only 150 metres away. Just 1 km from the villa is the Superesse supermarket in Santa Margherita Ligure and various shops. The splendid Bay of Paraggi, 3 km from the villa, precedes by 2 km your arrival in Portofino, a world-renowned resort synonymous with elegance and dolce vita. Not to be missed is the Bay of San Fruttuoso with the Abbey of the same name, a Benedictine monastery dating from the year 1000 which can only be reached by sea with the boats that leave from Santa Margherita or on foot along the paths that wind up from Portofino. The Cinque Terre (Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore), old fishing villages, can also be reached by sea in about an hour by boat, but a good alternative is the train, while using the car is not recommended . The charming borgo of Camogli can also be reached, preferably by boat as an alternative to the 10 km journey by car. The splendid bay of San Michele di Pagana, 3 km away, and the refined, nostalgic and lively town of Rapallo, 5 km away, precede Chiavari with its elegant centre, interesting shops and beautiful beaches. The town of Sestri Levante is 29 km away with its peninsula dividing the "two seas" of the Baia del Silenzio and the Baia delle Favole. Just 32 km away is Genoa, "la Superba", the ancient Maritime Republic that dominated the Mediterranean Sea, reaching its maximum splendour in the 16th century; an unmissable destination for the visitor who loves history, art and culture or who simply wants to breathe in the atmosphere and scents of the caruggi (alleyways) of its historic centre near the old port or visit the Aquarium of Genoa, one of the largest in the world.
