We were planning a special event to celebrate a major birthday. After looking around in our corner of France to see what was available we decided to cross the border into Italy and we chose La Riserva. Why? A long list of superlatives becomes boring. In one short sentence: this is an outstanding hotel/restaurant where the owner is personally involved... More

After steep climb from Ventimiglia you come upon the Castel D'Appio first Impressions are good with a lovely swimming pool and restaurant inside and out .The view is fabulous. This is a family run hotel and everyone we met were really lovely, especially Emilio who has worked there for forty years! He and his fellow waiter couldn't have been more... More

The drive up to the mountain is promising and the reward is wonderful indeed: the views are fantastic! The hotel offers old world charm with kind and friendly service. We stayed in room 202, which is not big but truely beautiful because it has windows on three sides and a wrap around balcony which offers views towards France and Italy.... More

A recent review by Ann S (my mother) pretty much sums up what I was going to say! I travelled with my parents, & we were blown away not only by the knock-your-socks-off views from the balconies (totally worth the slightly scary taxi trip up the steep hill), but equally so by the kind, caring & friendly service offered by...

I reviewed this hotel a few years ago, and thought I'd check in again to let everyone know that the high standards we have come to expect here are as high as ever and seem never to change. We've spent from two to five nights here annually over the past 15 - 20 years, and it's always a treat. We... More

We came across this hotel when looking at options for a possible overnight stay in Ventimiglia in order to avoid a rush in changing trains there. We needed a 2 bedroom suite to accommodate 3 adults & found this was available. The images looked spectacular & it looked utterly charming so we took a punt & booked for the one... More

This is a hotel that is hard to access and you need to arm yourself with a lot of patience as you will need to climb up the hill and deal with scary turns with no guardrails to get there. Take the Forte San Paolo way and not the other one that is longer. Once you get there, you have... More

We planned on staying two nights and ended up staying five it was so great. Family run hotel that make you feel like you are staying with friends. The dinner is outstanding and not to be missed. Service is impeccable. The rooms are updated and they have a balcony overlooking Ventimiglia, Cap Martin and Monaco. The inside dinning room is... More

The hotel was difficult to find and we still had some doubts while finally finding our way up to the hotel, but it turned out to be a very lovely place. We had a sea view room, though the room is too small for 2 persons & we had trouble connecting to WiFi in the room. We ate at the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a very relaxing time. The atmosphere reminds of an old hotel with relaxed surroundings and very friendly staff. At the same time there are good Wifi, modern TVs and a gym! This mix made it great for the whole family (not forgetting the pool). When you get just to the winding road... More
