Villa Edera e La Torretta

Moneglia, Genoa

Ligurian dishes prepared with the freshest organic produce, show-stopping cakes and guided hikes; a beautiful, family-run gem of a hotel


27 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 3


The villa is perched above the beautiful town of Moneglia and is a beautifully run, family owned hotel. The hosts make any stay a joy; Orietta and Francesca pour themselves into their business. Orietta is a mine of information about Ligurian art and history, sings in the local choir and loves meeting people who share her interest in music. Rooms are light and airy if a little retro, but there are plans to update the décor. Chefs Vladimiro and Loris will prepare Ligurian dishes, some vegetarian, with the freshest organic produce, and do fabulous breakfasts; Edy is a cake-making genius. Orietta is a keen walker who may take guests out for real hikes – though you can always catch a boat to Portofino and explore the Cinque Terre by sea. You are fairly close to the railway here (a significant part of the landscape, threading the Cinque Terre villages together) but you’d never know, and now there’s a lift up to the hotel from the street – handy! Lots of treats to come back to: a fitness room, sauna, a lovely pool. The beach is a ten-minute walk.

I really loved this hotel - the owners and staff were extremely attentive without being obtrusive, rooms were immaculate with great views and quiet (!) Air-conditioningand the half board menu was imaginative and delicious. The hotel is not far from the safe sandy beach down a slightly uneven pathway. The pool is clean and handy at the start and end of hot days. I recommend taking the boat trips to Portofino and the Cinqe Terre villages. The station is easily accessible from the hotel using the rather charming lift.

Let's keep it a secret. A delightful hotel with pool and garden to relax in and owners that care. A 5 mins walk to a town that slowly reveals its qualities - one can imagine this is what the Riviera was like before the masses came. Visit the Cinque Terre and Portofino (trains/boat options) and then feel joy and excitement at returning to this haven. The hotel serves high quality and healthy food in the restaurant at night and on the terrace for breakfast. The town has ample choice of bars and restaurants including places serving Ligurian dishes. We were welcomed everywhere.


a lovely place to stay easy to find with stunning scenery.the staff here go above and beyond and will definitely be returning soon
