THE DOORWAY TO THE CINQUE TERRE
A starting point to discover Liguria
Crystal-clear sea, exquisite landscapes, and lush vegetation guarantee a stunning view in a calm, relaxed atmosphere.
History, food and wine, beaches, and mountains intertwine to suit every type of holidaymaker.
Known as “The Doorway to the Cinque Terre,” Levanto is also the perfect starting point to visit the Cinque Terre.
Levanto’s beaches are among the most renowned in all Liguria: long and sandy, they’re perfect for families with children as well. The water is crystal clear and the view is spectacular, given the mountainous terrain rising up behind it, so much so that it received a Blue Flag from the European Union, a certification awarded to the best beaches in Europe.
Our terrace overlooks the clear blue sea and the golden sand. You can reach the beach in just a few minutes on foot to relax and sunbathe or take advantage of the numerous activities the area has to offer: boat trips, recreational fishing, surfing, and water sports.
There is also the option of taking part of a fishing day alongside fishermen, discovering this ancient trade, following nature’s rhythm, truly rediscovering beauty in the little things.
NOT JUST BEACHES
Despite being known around the world for its beaches, this Ligurian gem is teeming with trails for hiking and mountain bike or e-bike excursions, to the point that you could never hope to explore them all in just one holiday.
Thanks to the area’s variety of landscapes, there are itineraries where you can admire the towns of the Cinque Terre, cross over mountain trails, or hike along the beach to then end your day with a relaxing swim in the clear blue sea.
You can get information on recommended trails, book guided excursions, and rent e-bikes at the facility.
Levanto’s old town features an exquisite medieval village where you can see sections of the walls, the castle, and the gates of the territory, which were increasingly vast over time.
We recommend walking down Via Garibaldi, the town’s bright central road, not only to take a gander at the multitude of little shops, but to turn your gaze upwards as well to admire the historical frescoed buildings.
Also not to be missed are the myriad of little alleys with hidden details that will take your breath away, like glimpses of picturesque views or a simple basket of lemons in front of a traditional shop.
LIGURIAN FOOD AND WINE
An explosion of flavours
Ligurian food and wine are based on few simple ingredients, healthy natural produce grown in the area. The simple, wholesome nature of Ligurian cuisine seduces every palate, starting with soft Ligurian focaccia made using extra virgin olive oil, the star of every local dish.
Among Levanto’s traditional dishes, you’ll find “gattafin,” ravioli stuffed with Swiss chard and wild herbs, and “panissa,” which is similar to “farinata di ceci” (chickpea flat bread) but thicker, the perfect street food.
Mushrooms are also a must, picked in the hills of Levanto and nearby areas.
Of course, no dish or drink on the beach would be complete without wine. At our facility you can book a Wine Experience in collaboration with Cà du Ferrà and Nessun Dorma Cinque Terre, a multi-sensory experience where you can taste the area’s best wines in the wineries right where they were grown and made.
