Location is amazing, views (from the blue room) were breathtaking.
It is a very simple, sleepy village, great if you want to get away from it all.
The Locanda is mostly unmanned so you need to time your arrival, or let them know what time you will be getting here, and the caretaker will let you in.
Caretakers are very kind and helpful.
There's one restaurant, Lanterna which we did not try, and the Piccolo Blu cafe which does food but only simple fare.
The little grocery store will also do you a simple supper with what he has in that day, we enjoyed tomato and mozzarella salad and some ham and cheese, taken on the little terrace in the square.
You definitely need a car to get to it and the drive is hair raising. Parking is provided.
Slightly overpriced if compared to other similar establishments.
The breakfast was poor for the price of the room, it's self service from a coffee machine and all pre-packaged baked goods, nothing fresh, and no milk in sight for the packaged cereal.. We know Italians don't really do breakfast.. But this is a bit extreme!
We have stayed in other locande and b&bs along the coast (even in portofino)where the breakfast was way better than this and the price per night was at least 40euros cheaper..
Now, for the noise, as others have posted the sleepy town gets lively after dark. The chatter from the square didn't bother us too much, after all it's summer and people like to sit out and chat, but be aware of it if you are a light sleeper and need an early night. However, we were not so pleased on our second night to be woken at midnight by men singing songs out of tune at the top of their voices, followed by screaming kids, followed by more screaming and shouting by someone telling them to zip it and take themselves to bed... This went on till gone 1am... This was not the hotel's fault,and could have happened anywhere! But still...
The location is great for hiking, we walked down to the golfo del persico, stunning walk through the vineyards... But a killer, very steep, and takes about 30minutes to get down and 45 to come back if you are fit and healthy, take lots of water and something sugary if you have an energy drop! The 'beach' is just a mass of giant pebbles, only slightly less treacherous than the walk down!! Good luck!
- 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
