La Sosta di Ottone III
ITALY: Northern Italy: Italian Riviera: Cinque Terre: Levanto
Located in the Cinque Terre area above Levanto, La Sosta di Ottone III is the PERFECT place for the active traveler. This property is NOT recommended for those with impaired mobility, who are not fit, or who travel with steamer trunks as luggage! The property is reached via a footpath over which one's luggage must be carried. But the arrival here for hikers and other active travelers is well worth the effort.
With only four accommodations, which can easily accommodate families, the property is the creation of a Canadian and her Italian husband (who also happens to be a wine expert!). The uber-attractive room rates are inclusive of room only, but the charge for breakfast and dinner is modest. Each day, guests are advised of the choices for the evening meal and should advise if they will be having dinner as well as of any dietary issues prior to arrival. Water is provided in the rooms on a complimentary basis daily.
There is no TV or radio but there is broadband connection in each room. Other amenities include A/C, marble bathrooms, in-room safe and double glazed windows. Furniture is a combination of antiques and reproductions. The owners are very organized about suggestions for walks in the area and some eighteen small villages to visit. This is also a great place for children because once you reach La Sosta, it is an area free of cars. Young honeymooners, young families who are active and love to hike, you will love it here!
The restaurant, located in the renovated cellar, opens on to a terrace which overlooks the village of Chiesanuova , Levanto and the Mediterranean. Dinner is enjoyed outdoors in good weather. The emphasis is on Ligurian cuisine, with the menu changing daily according to availability of the freshest ingredients from local and organic growers.
Hiking over 15 villages in the Cinque Terre, with information on trails provided by the hotel.
