S. Margherita Ligure: introduction
Santa Margherita Ligure is situated approximately 35km from Genoa, to the east of the Portofino promontory. Surrounded by hills the slopes of which, covered in lush Mediterranean vegetation, provide the paradisiacal setting for villas and gardens all with spectacular views out on to the Delfini coast, this latter linking the town to that of Portofino.
The unique landscape is characterised by a series of terraces created so as to allow for the cultivation of olive trees.
The port is the site of sporting activities such as sailing and canoeing, as well as numerous fashionable social events linked to the International sailing regattas hosted by the town.
