La Dolce Vita

Sitting on the open terrace at dusk, gazing out into the dramatic Ligurian coast, guests at Splendido Mare will feel as though they have been transporte­d into a classic Italian film. The 14-room guest house in Portofino recently reopened in May after a headto-toe renovation; the new design blends nautical themes with 1950s glamor.

Guests can enjoy a romantic cruise on the San Fruttuoso Bay, take a dip in the emerald blue waters of Punta Chiappa, and trek through the famous ‘Path of the Kiss’, a scenic 12-kilometer route beginning at San Rocco. To commemorat­e the hotel’s grand unveiling, a fleet of racing yachts went head to head for the Splendido Mare Cup. belmond.com
