About the location
Holidays in Santa Margherita, situated on the Gulf of Tigullio between Rapallo
, offer an enticing combination of that glorious style which Italians bring to their seaside resorts. An unrivalled natural environment meets thought provoking cultural attractions and great food and entertainment.
It’s a lovely resort for couples, full of life, full of opportunity but also with space and time to take it easy, to enjoy each other’s company and to enjoy the Riviera experience. The beaches, where you can hire deckchairs, sunbeds and umbrellas, are a mix of public and private and primarily pebble with just a few sandy ones. But move closer to Portofino, around five kilometres away, and you’ll discover more sandy beaches. A great example is the beautiful Paraggi Beach, which is surrounded by all the bars and restaurants you will ever need.
If pebbles or sand between your toes are not for you, there are some really nice gardens and open spaces to enjoy on your holidays in Santa Margherita.
The hotel is 45 minutes from Genoa airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

One of the best hotels I???ve had the privilege to stay at, anywhere in the world. I wish I had done a better job of reviewing each hotel I???ve ever used, so the comparison would be more obvious, but this is simply stellar. A hotel that on one level feels like a time machine to another era, it is also perfectly designed for a modern vacationer. Astounding service (they made our bed each morning the moment we left, as a minor example) the staff are friendly, incredibly competent, and warm. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but for a splurge you definitely feel like it is worth every penny.
