By Car: Take the A 12 ‘Genova-Livorno’ Autostrada. Exit at ‘Carrodano-Levanto' If driving south, this exit is about 69 km from Genoa or, if driving north, 30 km from La Spezia.
After the exit booth, turn left and follow the signs for Levanto and follow the SS 566d for about 12 km.
Just before entering the town of Levanto, you will find a roundabout with a hospital on the right and a red brick church on the left.
Turn left here and follow the direction Monterosso al Mare. The village of Chiesanuova is 5 km from Levanto and 6 km before Monterosso.
After about 4 km, coming from Levanto, you will see a road on the right with a sign for Chiesanuova. DO NOT turn right here (unless night arrival, see below) as this road will take you to the bottom of the village which is a pedestrian walkway.
La Sosta di Ottone lll is located in the upper part of the village, so please continue another 700 meters passing the village of Legnaro on your left until you come to a wide right curve where you will find a small space for parking on the left side of the road.
This parking space is just beyond a driveway with gates, also on the left. At the top of the parking space you will also see a small cement water tank; there is a LA SOSTA DI OTTONE III sign here.
Once you have parked, walk up on the main road (as if you were still driving towards Monterosso) for 10 meters. On the other side of the road, you will see a break in the guard rail and a path with a wooden fence leadlng to La Sosta di Ottone lll. (There is a sign at the beginning of the path indicating the way to La Sosta.) If it is dusk you will see a switch which will turn on lights for the path.
After about 50 meters you will come to a group of stone houses; follow the sidewalk until the end then turn left and left again until you come to the green gates. There is a sign indicating LA SOSTA DI OTTONE lll. You have arrived!
Late Arrival: Please note that check-in is between 2:00 pm (14:00) and 6:00 pm (18:00), when the office closes. For late arrivals, please contact us for instructions. If reception is closed, we will leave the directions to your room on the gate.
Night Arrival: Since the above mentioned parking space is not lit, we would advise you to take the small access road on the right which is 4 km from Levanto and signed ‘Chiesanuova’. Park along the road as close as you can to the village and, on foot, take the only road there is up through Chiesanuova rowards the church. Passing the church on your left, the lane takes you behind it; continue upwards and you win see that the lane turns to the right and continues quite steeply upwards bringing you to the entrance to LA SOSTA DI OTTONE III.
Note: If you choose to park in the previously mentioned parking space, we would advise you to bring a flashlight.
