Found this hotel on the internet. It is located in a small village, on a mountain top, and can be seen for miles around. A Winding road leads uphill until you reach the village (and don't follow your GPS when it wants you to turn into the very narrow Mercato lane, continue on the main road to stay sane). The hotel now has added 8 parking spots, where you need a permit. Great!! The house is a former convent and is located behind the church (and Church bell tower) and contains a restaurant (good quality, separate review), a small spa and the hotel with close to 20 rooms and a terrace for coffee or breakfast. Breakfast is small, Italian style. Service is very efficient and friendly. All are very helpful in making reservations or giving information. Since we stayed for a full week, we got a Three beds room, which was perfect since we had a lot of luggage. Room is charming! Bathroom reasonably big and very clean, as all the premises. We ate several times in the village, and used the hotel as a base for our excursions around Liguria, all the way down to the northern part of Toscana, via Lerici, La Spezia, Portovenere, Riomaggiore/Cinque terre and Rapallo/Portofino and the surrounding Mountains. The uphill drive is a challenge the first time but once you get to know the road, it works fine. Village Life is peaceful and enchanting. The atmosphere of the hotel is relaxed and elegant at the same time. I would gladly go back another week!
