We knew nothing about this area of Italy but followed an article I had read in The Daily Mail about "Poets Bay" This hotel was recommended in the article and I have to say it was just magical. It was styled like an old fisherman's cottage and when we entered the room and the shutters were pulled back, it was absolutely spellbinding. The sea was before us and the waves were lapping within 10 metres of the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bathroom and there was plenty of space. The house next door had been rented by D H Lawrence where he wrote The Rainbow and I could understand the inspiration he must have gained from being in this spot. Although it had not been easy to find the hotel and a lot of small narrow road had to be negotiated, this hotel was my favorite in our three week journey through Italy and France. We dined in the restaurant overlooking the sea and the food was very good. The staff were very friendly and although few spoke English, made us feel welcome.. I loved this hotel and I didn't want to leave after our two night stay. I would certainly return, given the opportunity.
