Never ever

Posted Aug 1, 2016 on Hotels
Never ever same hotel! False info, false advertizing, wrong address on booking confirmation, bad indications on the road, nobody to welcome you at reception, lost entire day on the area, had to relocalize in real time! Please refund!

For Adventurous Romantics

Posted Sep 23, 2015 on Hotels
Most memorable stay of our 4 week vacation. Will have a wealth of stories to share with friends. Reaching this location should only be attempted in daylight with a GPS and preferably a small car. Very rustic and romantic with great views. Roomy with modern baths cleverly and tastefully added. Breakfast was delicious and with a scenic overlook from the mountain through a window lined with flowers. Perfect place for the most adventurous romantic couple.

Rustic and beautiful

Posted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel was beautiful and rustic with gorgeous views and friendly staff. This is not the place to stay if you want to be in the lap of luxury (air conditioning, lots of space, a concierge who speaks English). If you are looking for a traditional Italian B&B, then you will love this hotel! The hotel is located about 30 minutes from Cinque terre and you need a car if you plan to stay here. Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

Adorable place to stay

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Adorable setting that made you feel like you were far away from the hustle of daily life.
This hotel is set away about 15 minutes from La Spezia, near Cinque Terre, in the hillsides. Even though you're not on the water, the view is no less spectacular! I loved staying here and would do it again in a heart beat. Not a good option to stay at this hotel if you don't have a car. It is not near any public transit, as it is up on a hillside. Thankfully, I was ona a road trip, but not everyone who was staying there at the time was in the same boat. The wifi was also a bit weak unless you are standing in the hallway. The owners/managers are all incredibly sweet, but it does help if you speak at least a little Italian, or enough Spanish to understand what's going on, since their English is not very strong.

it was hard to find, located in the hills on a dead end road. once found it was a gem. our private secluded castle with a nice restaurant. beautiful surrounding rolling forested hills, and just 20 minutes to porto venere and cinque terre. WOW!

Rustic and Romantic

Posted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels
This is for you if you want a romantic getaway in the countryside.This is really a hermitage not a hotel and is part of a very old historic structure on top of a hill. .It is a challange to find your way there and without the GPS we would have been lost .Be sure not to get the room above the restaurant as there is lots of noise till late at night .The restaurant serves excellent local food . There is no parking and you have to park on the side of a steep and narrow road and carry your luggage up 65 stairs.

Away from it all ... Exotic experience

Posted Apr 29, 2013 on Hotels
What a great experience. A little hard to find and parking on the side of a narrow country road. I wouldn't hesitate returning though. Great room and private bathroom. Window looks out into an amazing view of hills above Cinque Terra (no ocean view). Attached restaurant served very good food and reasonable prices.

A lovely stay at a charming location

Posted Jul 16, 2012 on Hotels
The hotel is better described as a B&B - it has a relaxed approach (we arrived to find a note on the door saying the owner only opens for check-in between 3pm and 7pm). But the place almost feels like a family home for all that and the owner couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful. It's a very pretty place with gorgeous views over the hills. You definitely need a car as it is quite a way from the nearest town (La Spezia) - however parking is just on the side of the extremely narrow road. The room was very nice and clean. We were allowed to bring our own food to have an evening picnic in the courtyard which was very nice (the restaurant, except for breakfast, was closed). It is great value for money, importantly. We had a lovely stay here.
