The Grand Hotel Portovenere is an excellent base for exploring the coastal town of Porto Venere as well as the nearby Cinque Terre. A converted Franciscan convent, the property has a pretty pink and cream-painted façade and offers wonderful views of the small port and medieval waterfront below.
Inside, the historic structure of the building has been artfully renovated to offer an air of modern luxury while still remaining true to its roots. In the main bar area, the original brick vaulted ceiling is a wonderful feature, but the primary draw is the fantastic view across the Gulf of Poets and the medieval heart of Porto Venere.
Each of the hotel’s rooms have been stylishly decorated. Many of the rooms also have a balcony or terrace.
Offering exceptional service, the Grand Hotel Portovenere is easily our first choice for exploring the Cinque Terre and surrounding area.
