The beauty and charm of Portofino, Cinqueterre and Golfo dei Poeti at the Ligurian Riviera has drawn celebrities as well as travelers to visit its Mediterranean landscape, fine cuisine and idyllic fishing ports for many decades. During the coronavirus pandemic the region has not undergone major fluctuations in property prices and has maintained its attractiveness. But market trends have changed as they are adapting to new clients’ needs that emerged during the lockdown period. “Clients are now mainly interested in apartments or villas with outdoor spaces.
