This is my family's home town and it is one of the best places I have ever been to. We go back every year and the Hotel Monte Rosa is brilliant for all.
Let me start with the food. It is just out of this world, every dish fresh and perfectly made, simple not expensive and always delicious. I am a big foodie and trust me this place serves incredible value for money food.
The rooms are nice, clean well sized, but the area is so nice you really shouldn't be spending much time in it anyways. The new pool is lovely as well.
The idea of this coast of Italy is that you can travel by train to any neighbouring beach or rent a car and drive along the coast, the views are fantastic. All the way from Sestri Levante (try out the Lanterna restaurant, absolutely fantastic) to Portofino you will find endless beaches of all shapes and sizes that all deserve a visit. The food around the whole area is brilliant so just about anywhere you pop into will undoubtedly be fantastic.
Finally give the Cinque Terre a visit as well.
Chiavari itself is one of my favourite towns in the world, the perfect size, beach, docks, quiet yet plenty to do, bars, shopping you name it. If you're looking for a calm holiday by the beach and want to stay in a great value for money hotel definitely stay here, the staff are brilliant as well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Monte Rosa is the "Secret Dream", the fruit of love and constant dedication of two young newlyweds, grandparents of the present proprietors, who in 1909, with passion and sacrifice gave life to this establishment, transforming it over the years from a small restaurant to a 4 star hotel with 62 rooms, Restaurant, Banqueting Hall and Swimming Pool. It's located in the beautiful historical porticoed town centre of Chiavari, immersed in the heart of this vibrant small medieval city, and only a few minutes from the promenade. Chiavari moreover is situated at the centre of an area rich in natural beauty: from the uncontaminated Cinque Terre to Portofino, from Genoa, with its aquarium and beautiful historical centre, to Camogli and Sestri Levante. The hotel is the destination chosen by those who have a passion for trekking, tourism, cycling and mountain biking, those who want to forget the car and choose either the train or the boat as an alternative mode transport or those who simply want to relax and be pampered away from the hustle and bustle of stressful living. ... more less
