“… With the first light of the evening a walk in the Portofino’s Piazzetta is a must in the Ligurian Summer.
Historic address on the marina, is the Chuflay, bar and restaurant of the Splendido Mare, sister property of the iconic Hotel Splendido, both part of the Belmond group…
…behind a glamor image, Portofino is also an extraordinary corner of protected nature, from the marine area to the regional park, to be experienced not only on the beach and by boat, but also in the hinterland, immersed in the greenery of the terraced hills, which overlook the Mediterranean. And it is precisely this experience that the Splendido’s guests can have at the Fattoria Frantoio I Coppelli, one of the realities part to Portofinese’s project.
It is a project that aims to promote the products from the crops of the Promontory only, from oil to beer, to honey. The day begins at the Frantoio in the company of the agronomist who guides the harvest of fruit and vegetables in the garden. Then we move on to the cooking workshop where a local chef teaches how to cook the most famous Ligurian recipes.
The morning ends with an outdoor lunch, under the splendid pergola.”
