Villa overlooking Rapallo  € 900000

Description

Traditional Villa, hillside location with stunning views along the valley to Rapallo, Situated on a local road, main highway only 5 minutes drive connects to Genoa (Airport) only 30 minute drive. Typically Italian, thick solid walls offer insulation from the heat of the day and the chill of the evening, although being so close to the Mediterranean, temperatures are mild compared to inland areas of Italy. Includes multiple rooms, many with balconies overlooking the valley, other ideal for storage, the property has potential for multiple family accommodation. We anticipate any new owners would want to upgrade the facilities, although the property is perfectly habitable. Surrounded by mature terraces, with olives, and fruit trees, there is scope for extention and the secure parking area would be ideal for garaging and/or further accomodation. 
Rapallo is a very popular destination with both Italians and international tourists, the centre of town is renowned for it´s promenade walk along the harbour front, lined with palm trees. A multitude of high quality restaurants, speciality fish and local cuisine, fine wines and of course shops make this a popular place to sample the real Italy. The picturesque harbour boasts a 15th century castle, whilst the peninsular also includes well known Santa Margherita and is home to quintessential Italian fishing village, Portofino (As seen on numerous postcards in Celebrity Magazines)
