The Impressive Abbey of Cervara founded in the 14th century is a monastic complex on the Portofino promontory with impressive views of the sea: it overlooks the coast of the dolphins, the whole Gulf of Tigullio and partially Portofino bay. The Abbey is accessible from the road leading from Santa Margherita Ligure to Portofino.
The monastic complex includes a consecrated church, the tower, the main building and a monumental Italian garden decorated with hedges of boxwood elegantly refined that surround the marble fountain of the 17th century. The higher terrace is a splendid garden suspended between land and sea, a treasure of art where nature offers its abundant wonders with mysterious forests of olive trees, rare botanical plants, fragrant aromatic herbs, flowery avenues and plants leaning against the walls. A corner of earthly paradise.
Symbolic wedding ceremonies can be organized in the inside court or in the Wisteria Garden or Portofino terrace. With a special permission from the local priest it is also possible to organize Catholic ceremonies in the Church of the Abbey.
Sit down dinner can be organized in the large panoramic terrace or in the Gardenia Garden or on the lawn in the upper garden level.
In case of bad weather conditions La Cervara has plenty of areas inside for ceremonies, reception and dancing for groups up to 200 guests.
The Noble floor is a huge apartment with 4 exclusive suites, a large living room and private kitchen. The Suite for the Bride and Groom is separated from the main building and set in a special position with private terrace and sea view. Other exclusive rooms are in the Tower. Total number of rooms: 11
It is compulsory to book the rooms for a minimum of 3 nights to organize an event at La Cervara but is definitely recommended.
Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino offer a variety of hotels and are at only 5 minutes’ drive from La Cervara.
All year round.
