Hello again,

I’ve noted your beach suggestions although as it’s 12C in Munich at the moment I can’t imagine being on the beach next week.
Do you have any recommendations for local restaurants?

Thanks Roger.

Just stumbled across this website whilst preparing to return to Castelbianco this coming Saturday. It is a super place and I am looking forward to next week.

Hi Roger. I am very jealous. Enjoy Castelbianco for me. I hope to return soon. Erica

Wow! Beautiful pictures- this has definitely convinced me to make a stop at Liguria the next time I’m in Italy. Especially love the view from the pool! Ashley, Travel Onion

Hi Anne. Thanks for your comments. I would love to get back there in the off season. We wanted to go hiking, but it was just too hot. Nevertheless, it was amazing how few people were there even in the middle of July! Did you get to try the Bar des Sports for lunch or dinner? It is just down the hill and it was so yummy, and so cheap! Jill and Lindsey, you definitely need to check it out. – Erica

This place looks amazing – I would love to visit one day. Love places that are less touristy. Going to keep this info saved in my travel files! Thanks for sharing!

Hello Erica .. I just found the link to you on Facebook …. by Liguria Beautiful Travel.

I can actually agree with you about this stunning place. We went to Coletta Castelbianca in November 2008 for 10 whole days, it was absolutely charming, and we loved it. There might of been a few others staying maybe two others, and the people that live there, that is all. It was bliss. We met the the charming and lovely Alexandra, had two fab meals in the restaurant, it was like having our own chef, as we were the only ones in there. We went along the coast visiting all the small towns ..

I chose it myself and my husband said fine. We arrived on a very dark and wet November evening and I wondered what I had booked, but when we woke in the morning, the views either way were fab,

Looks breathtaking, I would LOVE to spend a week in the calm of Italy (by a pool of course)!
