A large terrace with an al fresco living room dominated by the ancient Doria Castle, and a giant window embracing the inspirational Gulf of Poets from Palmaria Island to the Apuan Alps. These are some of the defining characteristics of the newly revealed suites at Grand Hotel Portovenere.
If you are looking for luxury suites near the Cinque Terre with panoramic views of the Gulf of La Spezia, Grand Hotel Portovenere has just what you are looking for. The brand new suites offer the elegant sobriety of the historic Franciscan convent that used to occupy the building centuries ago, and the exclusive ambiance of the boutique hotel on the Italian Riviera.
Experiencing the territory through the suites in Portovenere
The two new suites, Castello Suite and Poeti Suite, are named after the local destination.
The Castello (Castle) Suite features a fantastic terrace overlooking the harbor and dominated by the Doria Castle. Thanks to its unique location, this area offers the perfect place to find sheer relaxation and to enhance your senses with the surrounding beauty. The suite includes one bedroom, a living area, and two bathrooms. Whether you are chilling in the outdoor lounge or resting on your comfy bed, you will gaze at the castle and wonder at its history, from construction of the defensive fortress under the Genoese in 1161 to the use as a political prison under Napoleon Bonaparte.
Poeti (Poets) Suite is an apartment with a living room, one bedroom and two bathrooms. It features a large window with amazing views of the Gulf that has enchanted many poets, painters and writers from all over the world. From your window, you can admire the Island of Palmaria, the mountain range of the Apuan Alps, and spot the villages of Lerici and Tellaro. While sipping some fine local wine in front of such a panorama, you can learn about the historic figures tied to Lerici, which include Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley. Or you can imagine the giant octopus that saved the inhabitants of Tellaro from the invasion of Saracen pirates, as a local legend narrates.
