Exclusive Experiences



Breath-taking landscapes, flavors from the sea and from the land, ancient trades, a territory that transmits unique emotions: the Gulf of Poets, in the Italian Riviera, is a destination that you must experience with your five senses. 

Choose among our proposals to create your dynamic or relaxing vacation between Liguria and Tuscany. Our hotel is easily accessible by sea and by land: it is located right in front of the embarkation point of the ferryboat that connects Portovenere with Cinque Terre, and offers a garage for your car.

We remind you that our parking is free for direct bookings, just like our buffet breakfast.
