Liguria Holidays & Hotels
Liguria, a metaphor of simplicity, Italian style and sophisticated pleasures. Its two rivieras are divided by the Gulf of Genoa and the region boasts many blue flag beaches with some of the clearest waters of the Mediterranean. The area known as the Levante is a quaint scene of chalky cliffs that arch around the Cinque Terre National Park, dotted with pastel houses and terraced vineyards whilst the Ponente, the area from Gonova to France is characterised by craggy mountains, luscious vegetation and inland forests of chestnut trees.
Just a stone's throw from the French border is the charming 19th century resort of San Remo, known as the 'town of flowers'. The fascinating old quarter of steep streets, covered alleys and secret squares contrasts with the elegant and famous resort that has blossomed in the ancient fishing port below.
Once a struggling artists' refuge, Portofino has become one of Italy's most exclusive and sought after holiday resorts. Its harbour is moored with yachts and its pedestrian-only streets crammed with a galaxy of designer names and stylish Italian restaurants.
A favourite of Hemingway, Alassio's charming old town rises above a former fishing village with beaches overlooked by the 16th century church of Sant' Ambrogio. From its bell-tower are spectacular views to Isola Gallinara with its historic Benedictine abbey.
Set among orange groves and a thriving marina popular with international yachting crews, its palm-lined esplanade culminates in a 16th century castle jutting from the harbour.
A stretch of coast close to the promontory of the romantic Cinque Terre, a picturesque sandy beach overlooks a lovely curving peninsula with a congregation of pastel-washed houses.
Surrounded by olive groves, this marina lies on a wide bay and is a popular beach resort for families.
An enchanting and well-heeled town leads down to a traditional harbour filled with brightly coloured fishing shacks.
