The Hotel de Charme Stella Maris is located at the gates of the fabulous Cinque Terre in Liguria and the port town of Levanto is the perfect base for discovering the zone.
In fact, the building is a genuine 19th century 'palazzo' complete with frescoes covering the high ceilings. It is elegant, refined and furnished with splendid period furniture.
The overall effect is one of serene calm and elegance as the images demonstrate.
Levanto was once the old feudal stamping ground of the Malaspina, and the Da Passano families before coming under control of the Republic of Genova.
The closeness of the Cinque Terre is one, but the continuous onshore breezes keep the climate mild throughout the year.
