We stayed for one night on the way from Italy to France. Lovely room and spectacular views. Staff were kind and service was excellent. We booked the 'Typical Ligurian Meal' from the hotel website. The food was really, really excellent. Suggest that you skip lunch beforehand as the meal is substantial and you won't want to miss any of it. Large swimming pool with lovely surrounds. Only downside is the poor WiFi access. We had booked a sea view room, but no access at all there. We were kindly changed to a lovely garden view room which did have access, though still very patchy. The garden view room was actually more expensive, but we weren't charge for this and the staff were extremely helpful about it all.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The antique building located on a peak about 300m above the sea and underneath the ruin of the "Castle d'Appio" is a 13th century garrison and enjoys a marvellous view of the Italian "Flower Riviera" and the French "Côte d'AzurUnder the old castle built by Roman Consul Appio Claudio in 185 B.C., in 1967 the hotel and restaurant "La Riserva di Castel d'Appio" was erected on the ruins of the old building which belonged to the same family who today is still the owner and manager of the hotel facility.A refined lounge for the winter restaurant, a flowered terrace along the swimming-pool for dinners in the candlelight, highly recommended is our fish specialities from the best traditional and international dishes. The Genoese, in the Xlll century, rediscovered the position of the castle, rising steeply 300m out of the sea, and almost totally rebuilt it. From the restaurant and the rooms you can enjoy the same magnificent view.The hotel is located between the "Riviera dei Fiori" and the "Côte d'Azur", 18 Km away from both Sanremo and Monte Carlo. To reach it you have to leave the A10 highway at Ventimiglia exit and run 1/2 mile toward the town. Then, after you cross a bridge on the Roya river, you have to turn right toward France. After 400 mt, at the traffic light, turn right and go on for 4 Km. ... more less
