Covid-19 – Commitment to Cleanliness & Safety Program

We are here when you are ready to travel again

We at Grand Hotel Portovenere have always been committed to providing our guests and our employees with the health and safety measures that ensured a stay free of concerns. And now, in light of the Covid-19 situation, we are even more focused on these important issues.

We are strictly adhering to the protocols and guidelines established the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Italian authorities. We have elevated the level of our already strict practices around food handling, sanitation, disinfection and cleaning, to ensure that we meet and exceed the government and global health organization recommended guidelines.

For many of us travel is a reward to our hard work, a time we look forward to relaxing and enjoying exploring new or old places, in the company of friends, family or on our own, a time to recharge our batteries to return to our lives full of creativity, and unforgettable memories.

As the world begins to regain control of the present crisis and we start dreaming of traveling again, Grand Hotel Portovenere will be ready to welcome you in a safe and healthy environment, just like before, like your home in Portovenere.
