The Farm Inn

Just half way between the lovely bay of San Fruttuoso di Camogli and the tip of the coast there stands an old mill that has recently been restored and made into a pretty farm inn for the many travellers along the natural pathways of the Portofino headland. The farm house is also the perfect place for those who wish to spend the night in one of the most charming places of Liguria.

The mill can be reached only on foot, in around 20 minutes from the beach of San Fruttuoso, or just a couple of hours from the nearby villages of Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure and Camogli. It is a family-run affair and can only cater for around ten people per night in three very cosy rooms.

Breakfast and diner are served looking down onto the sea or in the warmy dining room with wood oven where you can taste typical Ligurian dishes including different kinds of soups, vegetable flans, home-made pasta and bread and conserves prepared with genuine, home-grown ingredients.

We think that taking care again of the territory in which we live is a good thing for us and also for those who will have a chance to taste our genuine products. We work the land and offer hospitality in our farmhouse in the heart of Park of Portofino, at the back of San Fruttuoso bay. 

Our area is public and we have recaptured it from decades of abandonment. We invite you to come to visit us strictly on foot and you will get to know a very charming place full of history.

The Portofino National Marine Park


The promontory of Portofino has always been considered a unique oasis in the Mediterranean, by virtue of the beauty and richness of the organisms that inhabit it. 
Few places in the Mediterranean can boast such a spectacular concentration of life forms, and to preserve these treasures the area has been designated a marine park, and all activities within it are regulated by the Portofino park authority.

The dive center is the more exclusive diving facility in Italy operating since 2002 with a comfortable custom boat and a fully equipped dive shop.
We like to think of ourselves as a small club, rather than a diving center, a meeting place for enthusiasts, the ideal choice for single divers, couples or small groups of friends looking to dive some of the most exciting sites in the Mediterranean sea, with all the convenience and peace of mind of having a fully-equipped facility and professional PADI/GUE instructors at their disposal.

To more closely answer the specific needs of individual divers, we only accommodate a limited number of people each day, by reducing both the number of divers per trip as well as the total number of dive trips per day.
 All dive trips are led by local instructors who have in-depth knowledge of the different habitats of the Portofino promontory and are dedicated custodians of its treasures.

Our philosophy is to provide an exclusive and unique service for the demanding diver looking to get away from the crowds, for those seeking small dive groups and a very personal dive experience.

Bruno Borelli, owner / manager of Portofino Divers
