Versilia and the Cinque Terre

The Tyrrhenian coast, amidst nightlife and health benefits

Known all over Italy as the birthplace of night life and entertainment on the Tyrrhenian coast, Versilia also combines cultural aspects and wellness within the municipalities that are part of it. Indeed, we find the most social of all here, Camaiore and Forte dei Marmi, right on the sea and where legendary restaurants, bars and clubs are flanked by thermal bathes and wellness centres, which are particularly blessed by the benefits provided by the salsobromoiodic water and the peat, such as the Terme delle Versilia. Moving further inland we find the towns of Pietrasanta, Seravezza and Stazzema, which feature a particular focus on cultural and naturalistic tourism.
Crossing over the border into the Liguria region, we get to the wonderful and delicate world of the Cinque Terre, which has been declared as being a National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The rugged and uneven character of the area, which fluctuates between rocky cliffs and farmed terraces that descend towards the sea, have given life to small, breathtaking fishing villages.
Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore are the five gems that make up this small chain, meandering between promontories and the Liguria coast, which has been a landing point ever since the Maritime Republics.
Each village has kept its own unique qualities: Monterosso has the largest beaches, thanks to the breadth of the golf that it looks out over; In Vernazza you can try the best bottles of traditional local wine, the Vernaccia, and it is connected to Corniglia via a pathway that winds through peaks and the sea. Corniglia is the only village that does not directly look over the sea. Surrounded by vineyards that are cultivated on the distinctive terraces, it can be reached on foot from the staircase, known as the Lardarina, which is made up of 33 flights with 382 steps. The houses in Manarola, on the other hand, have been built close to one another and look onto the main street, because they sprung up around the waterway that used to cross through the town. In Riomaggiore, however, you will find the typical Genovese tower-houses that follow the steep course of the river.
Try this itinerary and discover the Cinque Terre. It is sure to leave you blown away!

"Accomplished Tuscany without Compromise "
When indulging in a Tuscan holiday at a given price point one has certain expectations regarding service and amenities and this hotel delivers in bundles. We had an excellent stay in pristine surroundings with lovely views and the hotel staff were fantastic without exception. The amenities and service would rival any 5 star hotel worldwide. We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant on two occasions and were not disappointed. Breakfasts were to an excellent standard and pool service staff were excellent. An excellent feature was the intercom link ordering system by the pool where bar snacks and drinks could be ordered all day. Reception staff were very helpful with local area knowledge and organising wine tasting, restaurants, and trips. Bike and scooter rental are available. On the negative front we could not receive English speaking news channels on TV and the secluded location means that you would definitely need a car/transportation when staying there. These are very minor whinges and I would gladly offer my highest recommendation to this very classy Country House Hotel.  "
