Grand Hotel Portovenere
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Portovenere is a charming village that sits on the point connecting the spectacular Cinque Terre to the inspirational Gulf of the Poets. From Portovenere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is easy to visit nearby attractions such as the Cinque Terre, Lerici and Tuscany – by boat, car or train.
Grand Hotel Portovenere is located on the most panoramic point of Portovenere, overlooking the sea and the island of Palmaria, between Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets,
A XVII century monastery turned into a hotel after a careful renovation with a special attention to maintaining the original architectural features and an understated elegance, our hotel is the only 5-star property in Cinque Terre.
46 rooms featuring breathtaking views over the town and the island of Palmaria. Not a room with a bad view and all of them reflecting the pastel colors of the surrounding landscape through a modern and sophisticated design.
At Palmaria Restaurant dishes are a mix of tradition and modern creativity. Regional recipes are reviewed with a contemporary twist. The coolest place, day and night, is the outdoor terrace with breathtaking views over the town, the castle and the sea.
The property sits right in front of the harbor where ferry boats run daily to the villages of the Cinque Terre. Each village has a train station making travel between the towns quick and easy. You can reach La Spezia Train Station either with our hotel’s transfer service, or by car. Our hotel offers you parking right in the center of Portovenere, for a stress-free vacation and easy way to explore the Italian Riviera!
