Set in a peaceful environment, The Portofino Inn & Spa epitomizes comfort and character in an establishment that caters to guests who are looking for a healthy and restful retreat, those who want to combine comfort in natural surroundings.
The Portofino Inn & Spa with twenty-one rooms and one suite is situated 10.5 miles from Scenic Highway 1, and only a mile or so before one reaches Carmel Valley Village. In a quiet suburb on a hill above Carmel Valley Road, the inn might as well be a million miles away from the madding crowd.
Formerly called the Carmel Country Spa and Health Resort, The Portofino Inn & Spa has undergone major renovations to better serve the desires of the new millennium's visitors to Carmel Valley. Changes in the valley have been happening subtly over the past year or so, with world-class wineries, tasting rooms and restaurants opening or remodeling in record numbers. Visitors have discovered that all four seasons in Carmel Valley are mild, and that a wide variety of activities and attractions can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Besides the charming Carmel Valley Village that offers Summer Theater, antique shops, galleries and artisan studios, there are a wide variety of sport activities in the valley. For example, there are equestrian estates and ranches offering horseback riding, there's hiking in 4,000+-acre Garland Park, and bicycle paths up and down 13 miles of Carmel Valley Road.
Near The Portofino Inn & Spa, both in the valley and on the Monterey Peninsula are some of the best golf courses in the country if not the world. Laguna Seca Raceway is an easy drive over the Laureles Grade, the artist colony of Carmel, a mere 20 minutes away, and if one turns left at the mouth of Carmel Valley and heads south, one can enjoy the spectacular Big Sur coastline in a day's outing.
