Lerici Seaside Hotel
Best-Value Hotels - Green Vacations - Seaside Hotel
Lerici is one of our favorite seaside towns in Italy because it offers everything: breathtaking views of a huge bay ringed with evergreen hills and dotted with fairy–tale castles; a wide range of excellent restaurants, cafes and night spots; close proximity to the autostrada, the Cinque Terre and Tuscany. This little hotel has a couple of added bonuses. In the first place, extremely limited traffic is allowed on the street, so it is nice and quiet. Secondly, it is directly in front of a wide, sandy beach where lucky folks swim in some of the cleanest water in Europe from May to October. You can just grab your towel and sunbathe/swim right there, or walk 100 yards to a fully-equipped beach establishment with a restaurant and all sorts of amusements for the whole family. Check into the hotel, go off for a day's hiking in the Cinque Terre, spend a day visiting the castle in Lerici and the exquisite seaside village of Portovenere, then come on home and enjoy the beach for a couple of hours, followed by a 15-minute walk on the paved beachside path that goes straight to Lerici, where you can dine in a selection of restaurants ranging from the simplest pizzeria to the fanciest seafood splurge. Unlike the Cinque Terre towns, which essentially black out at sunset, this is the classic Riviera seaside village, and it all adds up to make the Quintessential Vacation!The hotel is small, with only 37 rooms, each of which has a balcony that faces the sea. Some face front-on and others are lateral, but all the views are stunning and panoramic so none is better than another. The rooms are not large, but big plate-glass doors make them seem bigger, and they have every amenity you would like, including air conditioning, satellite TV, electronic safe, direct-dial telephone, wireless Internet connection, an empty mini-fridge that you can stock with whatever you like, and a private bathroom with stall shower and hair dryer. There is one room with a queen bed that connects to a room with bunk beds and shares a bathroom; there are other rooms that have a single daybed with a pull-out bed beneath it (for two adults and two children). Single rooms have a single bed, and all the rooms have either carpet or parquet floors. There is a sundeck for everyone to use, and an Internet point in the lobby. A nice buffet breakfast is served before you head off for your day of discovering lovely Liguria.
