The Cinque Terre, the Five Lands, is probably one of the most iconic places in Italy and its reputation reaches far beyond the national borders. Instagram is thus filled with photos of these colourful villages perched on the side of cliffs, facing the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean. It is therefore quite understandable that you too want to discover this region listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And what better way to make the most of the magic setting than to treat yourself to a good bath overlooking the sea? That’s why we have found eight hotels with swimming pools in the Cinque Terre region for an unforgettable stay.
🌊 Autumn in a bathing suit. If you don’t know where to swim in October in Europe, here is a selection of seven destinations.
Park Hotel Argento
For this first hotel with swimming pool near the Cinque Terre, we are traveling to Levanto, not far from the beach. The Park Hotel Argento has a wellness center (with sauna and Turkish bath) available free of charge for its guests, as well as a panoramic terrace with a large swimming pool. The rooms are classic, with a minimalist decoration. But you will find all the necessary comfort, and some have a balcony. The villages of the Cinque Terre can be reached by train in just a few minutes – Levanto station is very close. As for the cuisine, regional specialties will be served in the hotel restaurant in the evening.
For our second establishment, we are heading to Monterosso. The Hotel Porto Roca benefits from an ideal location on the top of a cliff., just a few minutes from the beach, with a superb view of the Mediterranean. They also have a superb swimming pool. As for the bedroom, they are in the classic style, housed in a very elegant stone villa. Some even have a balcony. The hotel restaurant serves regional cuisine for lunch and dinner. What’s more, the Hotel Porto Roca establishment is located at the start of the famous blue path of the Cinque Terre.
Our third hotel is in Moneglia, halfway between La Spezia and Genoa (find also the best hotels), and offers direct access to the beach. What’s more, it wouldn’t be part of this selection if it didn’t have a magnificent outdoor swimming pool. On the bedroom side, we leave the classic décor of the previous establishment for more modern tones. During your stay, you will have access to a gym at Hotel Villa Edera & La Torretta and you can book the sauna for an extra fee.
For our fourth hotel with swimming pool in the Cinque Terre, we are going to La Spezia, less than 2 km from Saint George’s Castle. The Luxury Dreams offers modern, air-conditioned rooms in light tones, all in a relaxing setting. The staff is very caring for the guests. Popular points of interest near the apartment include Amedeo Lia Museum, Naval Museum and Port of La Spezia.
Hotel Al Terra Di Mare
Back to Levanto for the fourth entry in our selection of hotels with a swimming pool, and to the gates of the Cinque Terre for an establishment which looks more like a set of typically Ligurian buildings than classic accommodation on the Italian coast. This sets the mood for a vacation surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. It’s like a mini village in which each small house is its own accommodation. Some of these offer a beautiful view of the valley, while others face the Mediterranean. The owners have also made it a point of honour to make their hotel more ecological, running it on solar energy.
Miramare Apartments & Suites
We’re sticking around for this new hotel: Miramare Apartments and Suites offer a great view, perched 800 meters above La Spezia marina. The outdoor swimming pool is large, heated, and filled with salt water. You will also find an exposed, furnished terrace and a beautiful garden of olive trees. The beautiful view is shared by your apartment, which may also feature a private terrace. As for attractions, the Cinque Terre National Park is only about ten minutes away by car. What more could you want?
What a beautiful building! Villa Nespolo is a proper villa with its thick stone walls and its very intimate decor. The outdoor swimming pool is perfect for relaxing after an exhausting day of visiting the Cinque Terre. In addition, for your enjoyment, there is a beautiful garden, a barbecue for the summers, and a peaceful river. You shouldn’t be too bothered by neighbours either, as the property only has four rooms. It is undoubtedly the most relaxing hotel of our selection.
Villanova – Nature & Wellness
We end our selection of hotels with a swimming pool in the Cinque Terre style found at a charming establishment, nestled in a country house dating from the 18th century, as only Italy can offer. The Villanova – Nature and Wellness is located just 2km from Levanto, and whether you have a car or not, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding it – the hotel has a shuttle service to the town centre. It consists of a main building and three annexes, in which the different rooms are located. On the breakfast menu (which is served in the garden) you will only find local and fresh products, and the icing on the cake: you can take cooking lessons for an extra fee.
We hope that this exclusive selection of hotels with pools in the Cinque Terre has helped you find accommodation in the region. If you have any other addresses, do not hesitate to share them in comments.
