La Dolce Vita is an exceptional property on the Portofino peninsula. Note: it's more accurately named Casa Bianca, after the noted Milanese architect Carlo Bianca who designed it in the early 20th C for the family who still owns it today (this from a generously informative document provided by the entrance). Casa Bianca is an interesting double entendre, since it is a "casa bianca" (WHITE house), unlike most in the area. I guess La Dolce Vita is its VRBO "stage name".
The villa is isolated from the glitz of Portofino and bustle of Santa Margherita and Rapallo, but conveniently accessible to all (Portofino by walking -- though challenging for the 82 yr old in our group -- and all by the frequent and very accessible #82 bus) as well as to the excellent beach at Paraggi. FYI, the 'town' of Paraggi is no more than a beach, a couple of restaurants and hotels and one (ONE) shop that sells beach essentials. No bodegas, no real provisioning like that easily found along the lanes running back from Santa Margherita's waterfront.
La Dolce Vita is stunning and architecturally distinct from those in the area -- more like one might expect to find in Amalfi, with decidedly pan-Mediterranean features. The beds and baths are comfortable and well-appointed. However the kitchen could use some updates. It's a classically tiny Italian household kitchen, but it functioned well enough -- as such kitchens always have for Italian families -- for our small group. Given the idiosyncratic floor plan built around the hexagonal soggiorno, kitchen expansion would be challenging, but a modern stove would be start.
The loggia and graveled terrace areas were a great pleasure for sunning and meals, with sparkling sunrises, views of gin palaces floating out on the cove and a tremendous fireworks display the first night (just for us, obviously :-). Wildlife sightings included wild boar (cinghiale) in the area. We didn't use the pool but might have had the season been hotter.
Olga was a very welcoming and informative property manager, full of information and good cheer. (Thank you, Olga)
La Dolce Vita in Paraggi is a great spot, for its location, condition, hosting and architectural significance. We would certainly (and might well) return for another visit.
family gathering in Liguria
The villa and location were exceptional. the space was ideal for 6 adults and 3 children/grandchildren. We were there recently and though the temperatures were slightly higher than normal, the easy access to the beach (sandy) the pool at the villa and the sea breezes were delightful. Portofino was easily reached by foot and a great time was had by all.

Dieses Feriendomizil ist nur zum empfehlen. Wir waren zu neunt & haben es sehr genossen. Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht.
Jedes Zimmer hat seinen Charme. Die grosse Stube/Wohnzimmer mit grossen Flügeltüren und sau gailem Mosaikboden ist ebenfalls ein hinkucker!
Der Aussenbereich ist fantastisch. Der Blick richtung Meer ist atemberaubend. Auch das viele Grün des Gartens ist toll. Wir haben uns in dieser Woche in das Haus verliebt. Wer weiss vielleicht kommen wir wieder.
