“Lower Village is designed as a low-rise Mediterranean village community. Residential buildings are connected to the local landscape and include a selection of elegant pop-up stores, terraces and kiosks. Wide waterfront promenades and winding, asymmetrical streets weave past local stone buildings to reveal hidden piazzas, alcoves and step-like cornices, giving it the character, charm and ambiance of a long-established settlement. Community pools are surrounded by lush planting and sculptural trees. Thanks to its graceful pedestrian environment, Lower Village has a relaxed atmosphere where people enjoy the experience of the high-end boutiques and restaurants that complement Portonovi Marina. Portonovi Lower Village is human scaled. All buildings are low-rise, four floors being the maximum height for any building apart from specific landmarks features, with high-quality materials creating different looks and feels.”
