Villa Edera e La Torretta

Moneglia, Genoa

Genuine hosts, fabulous food, a swimming pool and a private speedboat for exploring the coast; a sandy beach is a ten-minute walk away


27 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 3


A villa perched above Moneglia. Owner Orietta is a mine of information about Ligurian art and history and loves meeting people who share her interest in music; her daughter Francesca is fluent in four languages.Together with sister Edy she prepares Ligurian cuisine with the freshest organic produce, and a generous breakfast buffet: home-baked bread, croissants and cakes, local cheeses and meats, fresh fruit juice and specialty teas, served on the terrace overlooking the pool with views of the surrounding hills.Ask about walks, which range from challenging hikes to picturesque coastal ambles along an old train track, or charter the hotel’s private speedboat with an English-speaking skipper for excursions to nearby coves, islands and towns, including Portofino and the Cinque Terre. 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

The neighbourhood

Set between Genoa and Cinque Terre, Moneglia lies in a bay with a sandy beach and crystal-clear waters. Wander through the narrow streets of the historic centre to discover ancient churches, shops and small restaurants serving local fare, as well as a train station – you can reach the Cinque Terre in 30 minutes, Portofino in less than an hour, and there are authentic coastal towns to explore in both directions. You'll have to walk uphill to get to the hotel from the town although there's a private elevator for the last part.
