Splendid Santa Margherita and the Cinque Terre

Experience the magic of the Italian Riviera with a four night stay in Santa Margherita. Liguria is one of the loveliest and most picturesque regions of Italy. This region is home to captivating seaside villages such as Santa Margherita, Portofino and Camogli and further south to the simply captivating towns of the Cinque Terre: Monterosso, Vernazza, Coniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The coastline is breathtaking, with pastel colored villages crowned with medieval churches and abbeys rising up on dramatic rocky outcrops, and vineyards and olive groves descending vertically down to the turquoise sparkling sea. Lush pine forests hug the coastline, shading many trekking paths between villages. This land is so rich in history, culture, natural beauty, perfumes and mouth-watering cuisine, it will give you an extraordinary Italian experience.

igurian cuisine is the true Mediterranean diet and is characterized by its use of fresh herbs and vegetables such as basil, bay leaves, fennel, marjoram, zucchini (courgette), eggplant (aubergine), seafood (anchovies, swordfish, sea bass, etc) and of course extra virgin olive oil and fragrant wines. Local specialties of the area include Focaccia (delicious flatbread), Pesto Genovese (gorgeous sauce made with basil, pine nuts, walnuts, Parmigiano and Pecorino cheese, and ample olive oil and garlic – all served over pasta), Vegetable quiches, Pansoti (hand made pasta).

Santa Margherita Ligure is one of the most charming and elegant seaside towns of the Italian Riviera, located between Portofino and the Cinque Terre. This small town is worldwide famous for its wonderful natural landscape and historic villas as well as its special style of life. Santa Margherita boasts a range of things to see, from local antique shops to beautiful cathedrals.
