Portopiccolo ensues from a territorial and environmental requalification project as well as from the recovery of a former quarry which, until its dismissal in the Seventies, was devoted to both stone and Aurisina marble mining.
The requalification project was completed in 2014 giving birth to an innovative and unique reality in the Italian panorama. “Portopiccolo” leisure complex is set into the heart of the Sistiana Bay (TS), within a close driving distance from Trieste. Moreover, it only takes 10 minutes by car to reach us from the airport of Ronchi dei Legionari, which connects the resort to the main European cities.
Today, Portopiccolo presents itself as a real maritime village, enclosing a fascinating eco-sustainable architecture combined with the technology and services of an avant-garde complex.
A peculiar decision was integrating the inner driveability into galleries embedded into the subterranean rock, thus creating 1,220 parking lots. This was a strategic decision. The aim is to provide both residents and visitors a car-free environment (within the facility it is in fact not allowed to circulate by car, which has to be parked into the parking lot), thus enjoying a more natural and less chaotic area.
A unique and exclusive destination which has a strong residential component, consisting of about 460 residential units, the presence of a 5*L hotel managed by Starwood with the brand a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, two shopping streets with boutiques and neighborhood shops (bar, bakery , gastronomy), restaurants, lounge bar, conference center and a seafront SPA of approximately 3,500 square meters.
To complete the list of amenities: the marina, a safe mooring for boats of diverse lenght. The 121 berths equipped with modern facilities and nautical equipment meet the most sophisticated needs of all sailors.
