romantic hotels in Liguria

Jump to last reply

Rummaging through a charity shop in Rochdale, I came across a lovely book by Gina Podesta called ‘ A Romantic Guide to Italy’ which is full of recommendations for romantic hotels and restaurants throughout Italy. It is a most attractively produced book.
I was drawn to the section on Liguria and Amalfi – because I have been to the former and I want to go to the latter.
In the Liguria it recommends staying at:
Portofino Kulm;
Spledido and Splendido Fare, Portofino;
Cenogio dei Dogi, Camogli;
Grand Hotel Bristol, Rapallo;
Grand Hotel Marimare, Santa Margherita Ligure;
Imperial Palace Hotel, Santa Margherita Ligure;
Villa Gnocchi, Santa Margherita Ligure;
Grand Hotel deo Castelli, Sestri Levante;
Villa Balbi, Sestri Levante;
Porto Roca, Monterosso AL Mare;
Villa Pagoda, Monterosso AL Mare.
As I frequently frequent charity shops, I guess many of these are out of my league. Has anyone actually stayed in any of them, or even heard of them?
Just in case you are thinking that its so unromantic to frequent charity shops, I should add that it was Valentines Day and I was passing on my way to buy a couple of my sweethearts favourite black puddings from the best butcher in Rochdale. I like to treat her to a slap up meal on Valentines night.
