Known historically as a fishing village, Santa Margherita has been transformed by tourism into a valued holiday seaside resort. Famous today as the “Pearl of the Tigullio Gulf”, Santa Margherita sees a harmonious integration of the urban landscape and the tourist harbor with nature.

Once you arrive at the Cappelletta della Neve in Nozarego, follow the paved road for about 100 meters until you reach, on the left, the cobbled path that climbs up between villas with gardens and dry stone walls that soon join the road coming from the church of Nozarego. The path continues on the plain with a view of the Gulf and the Abbey of Cervara up until arriving to the Cappelletta delle Gave, which owes its name to the presence of a small church, a crossroads for numerous paths.

 

The Gassetta mill is an historic mill that has been brought back to life as a restaurant, a resting spot, a small museum, and a source of information, all within the preserved area of the Park of Portofino. Today this charming restaurant adheres to the philosophy of “simple and local” in it’s cuisine, allowing visitors to taste typical and tasty traditional Ligurian recipes.

 

Located in the heart of the park, Olmi is characterized by a spectacular unspoiled nature. The traditional intervention of man is here well inserted in the natural environment: the cultivation methods and types seem not to have known the passing of the centuries here.

 

Prato offers breathtaking views here where the cultivated areas merge with the spontaneous vegetation. The cultivation of vines, olive trees, vegetables, citrus fruits and other fruit trees has been going on here since the first centuries of the Middle Ages.

 

The namesake Via San Sebastiano is a small road in the middle of the olive groves that from the park leads us to Portofino village. All the houses scattered along the route – once peasant dwellings – are now almost all renovated. The little red church of San Sebastiano is also beautiful to see and rich in history.

 

The picturesque village of Portofino is a small jewel immersed in the natural context of the regional park to which it gives its name. Located on the eastern cape of the headland, Portofino is a place of great tourist interest. Its tall and colorful houses disposed in semicircle and overlooking the main square and the marina are surrounded by hills covered with olive trees.
