Staying at the Locanda Tramonti in Campiglia was a unique experience. Perched in the hills above La Spezia, this inn is an ideal place to stay for hiking, sunbathing, and observing small town life. From our private rooftop terrace in the Torre Cielo room, we had a breath-taking view of both the Gulf of La Spezia and the Mediterranean Sea.
But the place does have some peculiarities that visitors should be aware of. Without a car, your options are limited since bus service to La Spezia is infrequent. There is one restaurant in town that closes on Mondays and for the grape harvest (which began while we were there) plus another eating option at a place designed as a refuge for trekkers that is only open during the day and also closed on Mondays.
The Locanda is managed by a nice couple that make sure visitors are informed of the limited eating options and help out as much as they can. (They kindly arranged for us to have a ride to the train station on our day of our departure.) You definitely should give them a call to let them know what time you'll be arriving since they do not remain at the property all day. The layout of the inn is a result of an interesting renovation, with some oddities (like walking through the kitchen to get to one of the rooms) as well as the wonderful private solarium accessible from our room. Breakfast is self-service but you can eat out on another terrace with a delightful view of the sea.
- 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
