Grand Hotel Portovenere

Home > Hotels >  Grand Hotel Portovenere

The property sits right in front of the harbour where ferry boats run daily to the villages of the Cinque Terre. Large windows and a grand terrace overlook the sea and the charming village of Portovenere.

This 5-star hotel on the Italian Riviera is nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in Eastern Liguria. Once upon a time, the building hosted the Convent of Saint Francis. Following careful renovation works, today it features a charming hotel with sea-view rooms, a Mediterranean restaurant and luxury services.
Grand Hotel Portovenere overlooks the marina and the historic center of Porto Venere. The seafront hotel is just steps away from the boats that take you to the Cinque Terre and the Bay of La Spezia, which inspired poets such as Lord Byron and Mary and Percy Shelley.
Portovenere has been a destination for elite tourism for over a century. Today, as before, its charm has remained unchanged.
The surrounding nature provides a scenery that astonishes travellers from all over the world.
At Grand Hotel Portovenere, guests will be charmed by the elegance and beauty of the hotel with panoramic sea views from most rooms and the restaurant. Portovenere and the Gulf of Poets offer a dream wedding venue near the Cinque Terre in the Italian Riviera. The lush vegetation on Palmaria Island and the bright turquoise waters are the backdrop to the unique and sophisticated style of Grand Hotel Portovenere.


Each of the hotel’s rooms has been stylishly decorated. The contours, materials and furnishings of your accommodation in Portovenere reflect the utmost attention to detail. Simplicity and linearity create a relaxing atmosphere that pays homage to the history of the building, while offering modern comforts along with a mix of contemporary and classic styles. Modern and relaxing colors recall the tones of the surrounding natural environment and reflect the light. Many rooms are also enriched with terraces, balconies and French windows overlooking the bay and the village, offering views of incomparable beauty.
