Do you know some nice places where to sleep in Liguria? This is the question that 90% of my readers ask me. That’s why I thought it would be nice to put together all the places that I know and all the places that I heard they are very nice to stay in. Today eastern Liguria! I hope it will be useful and you will find something special for you!
La Mansarda sul Mare
A holiday house, situated in the centre of the lovely hamlet of Bogliasco. It can hosts up to 4 persons and offers a stunning view of the Ligurian Sea from a fantastic terrace. The house is situated on the last floor and doesn’t have a lift, so you have to be prepared for climbing 😉 However, the view from the flat really worth the effort 😉 More about La Mansarda sul Mare here.
Agriturismo Le Pale
It is an agritourism that is situated on a hill, very close to the sea and the centre of Bogliasco. Here you can use a private gym, jacuzzi and open-air swimming pool. The rooms offer a stunning view on the sea and on the hamlet. To arrive at the agritourism you have to climb a little bit but the rest is fantastic. More about Agriturismo Le Pale here.
Al Piccolo Scoglio – Room & Breakfast
It is a romantic, fisherman house with a stunning view. The B&B is located on a precipitous cliff, directly above the sea level. Here you fall asleep while listening to the waves … incredible experience. The hosts are very kind and they offer a rich breakfast with typical, Ligurian ingredients. More about Al Piccolo Scoglio here.
House Camogli Casa Vacanze
A holiday house that can hosts up to 5 persons. It is located in the upper part of Camogli in one of the high, tenement houses of the town. The flat is clean and has a fantastic, sea view. The only disadvantage is that it has no elevator … and it is located on the fourth floor … but the view is worth the effort 😉 More about House Camogli Casa Vacanza here.
It is a 2* hotel, located in the town centre, very close to the sea promenade, railway station and restaurants. The hotel is not for the fussy tourists because it is very essential. However, it is very clean and with a nice breakfast and very helpful staff. More about La Camogliese here.
If you travel in a big group and you are wondering if it is possible to find something for you in Camogli, here is the answer 🙂 This is a large flat that can hosts up to 10 persons! It is simple, quite modern and very clean. Also, the price can be very interesting … especially because the accommodations in Camogli are generally quite expensive. More about Appartamento Sofia here.
House in Punta Chiappa
I think it is a fairytale place. I love Punta Chiappa and this holiday house is one of the most magical and most beautiful I have ever seen 🙂 This is a perfect place to relax and rest from the crowds and noisy tourists. The house has a spectacular view of the Ligurian Sea has its own garden and barbeque and it is furnished in a wonderful way! The only disadvantage, to arrive here you have to climb a little bit … cause the house is located next to the trail that leads to Punta Chiappa … however, thanks to this the place is really amazing! More about House in Punta Chiappa here.
Eight Hotel Paraggi
It is a 5* hotel on the way to Portofino, located in a magnificent village of Paraggi. For me, it is the most magical place in the whole Liguria. Very chic but calm, surrounded by the sea and the forest of the National Park of Portofino. The hotel has a fantastic view of the bay of Paraggi it has a private beach and private balconies. It is located next to Carillon disco-club the most fashionable club of the whole Liguria so if you like to have some fun during the night, this is the place to stay.

At the same time it is positioned in a very calm zone and thanks to this you can sleep and relax easily. It offers accommodation for up to 6 persons. The biggest disadvantage is to find a parking place. There is no private parking place and you have to find one public … and in Liguria, in general, it is not very easy. However, if you come to this region you should be aware of it 😉 More about LHP Suite Rapallo here.
Tipica casa ligure

The rooms are located on the last floor of the tenement house (no lift). They are quite small and the ceiling is not very high. The biggest disadvantage is that the rooms don’t have an air condition … so during the hottest months, it is quite hot inside. In other periods it is perfect! More about Albergo Barbara here.
