In a prominent position overlooking the small harbour in the picturesque town of Portovenere in Liguria, beautiful Grand Hotel Portovenere is a former 17th century convent that has been carefully transformed into a very elegant hotel. Bright and sunny guest rooms are furnished in a mix of contemporary and classic styles with the décor, in sea green, sand and yellow tones, reflecting the surrounding environment; sea facing rooms are particularly recommended for their splendid views.
A buffet breakfast can be enjoyed al fresco on the hotel’s panoramic terrace with views towards Palmaria Island, and in the evenings delightfully fresh fish and local specialities are served in the attractive restaurant.
The local beach is within easy walking distance as is the Doria Castle, Church of St Peter and a couple of museums, plus private boat tours can be arranged through the hotel.
Not all facilities are complimentary and are subject to seasonal demand.
Outstanding service from the staff, and a superb location for the sites of Portovenere and the ferry departures to Cinque Terre and Palmyra Island
