A boutique luxury stay on the Italian Riviera, Grand Hotel Portovenere is nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in eastern Liguria. Housed within a building that was once the Convent of Saint Francis, following a careful renovation, today the hotel features charming sea-view rooms, a gourmet Mediterranean restaurant, and enjoys a privileged location overlooking the marina and historic center of Porto Venere.
A relaxing atmosphere designed in calming shades of sea green, sand and yellow, each guest room reflects the unique light and colors of the Italian Riviera, while featuring a blend of contemporary and classic styles. An ideal location from which to discover stunning Porto Venere, the hotel's inviting spaces welcome travelers back home after a day spent exploring. The Palmaria restaurant offers romantic candlelight ambiance and a sublime terrace with large windows overlooking the sea, as Executive Chef Francesco Parravicini's menu highlights the coastal flavors and local seafood of the Cinque Terre and Italian Riviera. The Venus Bar features original historic details and a sea-view terrace during warm weather months, perfect for admiring views of Porto Venere and Palmaria island while relaxing with a cocktail.
