    Bergamo between Milan and Turin do Ryan air , 3 hrs
    Albenga is a small privateís airport 10 miles away from Loano .
    Loano has a helipad and maybe in the summer 1 movement every few days .
    Thereís a few heads of African countries and heads of big businesses keep there boats at Loano .
    So skyscanner Genoa .

    San Remo is ok itís less than a hr W and only 1 hr from Monaco . So only an hr in it sea time wise .
    Itís a bit old marina wise and has those parking issues .
    Coast immediately out is not as interesting as Loano s thereís no go to islands to go to and swim for a day trip . Towns nice .
    I bought a new to me aircraft and a few weeks later headed down to Italy etc. We landed at Albenga which was in a mountain bowl and was ď interesting ď

    Do they have berths available for 18m?

    Yes up to 65 M
    There was a Nordi 57 opposite me for a couple of weeks visiting.

    Those garages look interesting, Mike.
    We have little lock up sheds in SC that the Spanish call paniolas.
    They are worth their weight in gold and difficult to get.
    We often joke that the paniolas are worth more than the berths.
    But, seriously, if you get interested in that place, get a garage as well - you will be amazed at what you can put in it!!!

    If they would GIVE me that sort of money, that is.
    Yep P
    Last year a friend told me 58,000 euros in Portals for an 18m berth.
    That is probably just the starting price and the price will have gone up now.
    It is SILLY money.

    Can you comment on La Duquesa vs Sotogrande ?
    I lived aboard in Duquesa for 12 years and would say it's much preferable to Sotogrande, especially if a bit of life in winter is one of the things you are looking for. Four proper supermarkets within walking distance, a proper little town with several banks and all the other things you might need. Estepona nearby - good town (also with marina which has a comprehensive chandler). Nice beaches - handy for GIb. Flights from Gib or Malaga.
    Both Duquesa and Sotogrande have lifts which can cope with your boat. Both have comprehensive yard services and you can work on your own boat in Duquesa - I think you still can in Soto and you used to be able to stay on your boat. Duquesa's staff are amazingly helpful - anecdotally Sotogrande's have been less than helpful in stormy weather when Soto can get really bouncy.

    I've fixed that M! I've bought a house in SoF just to store all my boat stuff

    Probably about right but Portals is pretty much double the price of anywhere else with the exception of Adriano .

    I dont like it. There is nil security, people wandering up and down the pontoons and Russian ladies of the evening post midnight in the bars!

    Having a bit of a penchant for marina villages I'd be quite happy spending a year in Portals (it's quite cheap for a 10m boat like ours) but my partner hates it there.

    I've been there many times and a friend of mine used to keep his boat there. Yes its a bit bling and full of orange Germans as well as Russian hookers (at least according to jrudge, I wouldnt know), but actually there's pretty much everything right on the doorstep to sustain boating life in terms of shops, bars and restaurants so it really isnt a bad place to keep a boat
