This little hotel looks to be balanced precariously over the most stunning view of the sea. High atop La Spezia's bustling harbour is tranquil Campiglia, population 113.
To get to this hotel, you have is a twisty, climbing drive up the hillside. A drive not for the fainthearted.
We took the train to La Spezia and so had to cab up/take the bus back and forth - which was just fine as I would not be qualified to drive that crazy little road.
The hotel has four rooms, three of which overlook the most stunning of views. Seriously breathtaking at all times of the day. Sunrise - stunning. Mid-day - relaxing watching the boats sail by. Sunset - gorgeous. Night time - serene and interesting to watch the sardine fisherman out in the middle of the sea with their little lights, attracting their catch.
The rooms were all very neat and tidy and very well decorated. Surprisingly so for somewhere so small. The bathrooms were very modern and had all the conveniences you would expect plus a wonderfully stocked mini fridge, complete with all your breakfast needs (yogurts, milk, juices, etc).
We sat on the balcony each night with cappuccinos we made with the provided machine. There is also a microwave and toaster oven which is nice, as this time of year the town restaurants are all closed at night, due to wine making season - so you might want to get groceries in town and make your dinner, eating it on the patio or rooftop patio.
We really loved our stay here as the property is just lovely.
If you are not driving - it is not overly convenient to catch the bus or get a cab.
If you are driving - good luck!
If you are walking the Cinque Terre paths, stop into this hotel for a lovely treat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tramonti Locanda is a small, charme hotel created in a villa dating from the eighteen hundreds. Situated in the little piazza in front of the Campiglia church, thanks to its rather particular location, it enjoys a splendid view over two seas: the gulf of la Spezia and the open sea of the Cinque Terre villages.From the Locanda, it is possible to go for wonderful walks, immersed in the silence and the intense fragrances of the typical Mediterranean maquis vegetation, right down to the clear, turquoise waters of the Persico and Navone beaches or, following the "crinale" (ridge) pathway, to the towns of Portovenere and Riomaggiore.The Locanda has a suite with solarium sun-bathing area and double bedrooms with terraces and balconies from which, on clear days, it is possible to identify on the horizon the profiles of the islands of Corsica, Capraia, Gorgona and Elba, as well as the Côte d'Azur. ... more less
