Off Season Visit

Portofino is beautiful but gets a lot of energy from the boats and day trippers in summer. Not many hotels and a few guest houses open in off season. So it may say 85% booked because most are closed for off season. Like going to Nantucket during off season. Night is really quiet with only 2-3 restaurants open. No grocery store so bring all supplies with you. We booked a private room - called SeaFront Portofino. Stay away from shady property manager. Wanted CASH wired to him - very difficult to work with. In general is was quiet, beautiful, nice hikes - but very limited services in remote area.
