The Tigullio Gulf and Santa Margherita Ligure
The Tigullio Gulf is a beautiful triangle of sea bordered on the west by the famous town of Portofino and on the east by Sestri Levante. The promontory of Portofino, which includes the marine area of the same name with the bay of San Fruttuoso and Punta Chiappa, outlines the immense arch of the Tigullio Gulf on the western side.
A short distance from Portofino is the charming bay of Paraggi with its beautiful turquoise sea, contrasting with the bright green of the hills. It is just beyond the town of Santa Margherita where the building complex in Via Trieste 6 is located, with 10 luxury apartments from which you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Gulf.
Santa Margherita Ligure is a stately and elegant international tourist destination and counts among the favourite places for people who love well-being. It features a beautiful waterfront, an old town centre with many shops and points of interest and a maze of small streets that lead from the castle up to the Capuchin Friary, until the Church of S. Giacomo di Corte. Santa Margherita Ligure achieved the 14001 environmental certification, a sign of profound attention and respect for nature.
The town of Rapallo is a short distance away, boasting an ancient historic hamlet and the tourist centre of Zoagli, a place which was already loved and visited in the 1800s by illustrious figures such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Ezra Pound and the painter, Wassily Kandinsky.
