Villa Margherita B&B
Levanto, Italy is the gateway to Cinque Terre and is conveniently located just a few minutes away from Monterosso, the first town in the 5-Terre region. Just like the other Cinque Terre villages, Levanto has a walking path along the ocean that connects it to the other Cinque Terre destinations.
Tucked away in this eclectic town of Levanto, lies a Bed and Breakfast surrounded by lush vegetation – where serenity awaits.
How to Get There
Villa Margherita B&B can easily be reached by foot from the Levanto train station. Street signs are not easy to find, but luckily signs with the hotel name are posted along the main road. If you are arriving at dark, a flashlight or headlamp may be helpful.
Upon arrival, we were graciously greeted by Federico, who immediately gave us information for the Cinque Terre train schedule and a full brochure containing information on the town of Levanto. He helped us with our bags and wasted no time showing us to our room, which we greatly appreciated after a long day of travel.
We were taken to the top floor of the small B&B to a simple room with a private bathroom and tall windows that opened up to a view of the garden area. The first thing we did was check the wifi and we were pleasantly surprised there was a connection in our room. No more trips to the lobby for our daily dose of internet.
Our room came equipped with a small fridge, a safe, hair dryer, television, a desk and a towel drying rack in the bathroom.
The daily breakfast at Villa Margherita was the best we had during our entire trip to Italy. The staff is always cheerful and ready to make you any kind of coffee or tea drink you desire. My cappuccino even had a smiley face made out of foam.
The breakfast buffet includes meats, cheeses, croissants, bread rolls, cereal, yogurt, fresh juice and cookies.
There is a large sitting area in the downstairs living room and outside seating in the garden. I suggest buying a bottle of wine, some prosciutto, crackers, and cheese from the local market to enjoy in the garden. Or take a stroll to the gorgeous beach which is just a 10-minute walk away.
We want to thank the staff of Villa Margherita B&B for hosting us during our stay in Levanto.
It’s already been a month since we left Italy, but we are getting excited for our trip to Hawaii. Hopefully we will have time to visit Lotus Honolulu during our stay.
