Our story

Home version 4

It may seem cliché to think the romantic love story of an American being swept off her feet by an Italian fisherman can actually happen, but it did! Ask Paula and Angelo, the loving and generous owners of Villa Valentina. While vacationing in Cinque Terre 21 years ago, Paula was struck by the Italian love bug aka Angelo, a 10th generation fisherman from Monterosso al Mare. It didn’t take long for Paula to realize her heart belonged in Italy, so she said good-bye to her executive life in San Francisco, threw caution to the wind, and booked her one-way ticket to the Cinque Terre. Ultimately, we hope you find what Paula and Angelo found here so many years ago – romance, laughter, love, and a healthy buzz from the wine, food, and wonderful lifestyle Levanto & the Cinque Terre offers to all who visit.

Villa Valentina is a family affair
