Villa Margherita Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member petermolina2006

Extremely helpful and nice owner, great location: very good value. We had a lovely brand new room with garden view . Federico (owner) gave us a list of good restaurants and every one was just fine.

Villa Margherita

by edwis

. Getting to the coast from the autostrada were winding and twisty roadways and finally we find our destination village of Levanto.

Even though there were signs in the town we were confused and still had to ask directions from a kid on the street. His direction was to turn at ‘the plant’. All he said was “Look for the plant.” Well, the plant as we realized after a while, was actually a nursery store which had a large sign selling live “plants”.

The Villa Margherita our Bed & Breakfast is operated by Frederico and his little ‘United Colors of Benetton’ stylish wife, named Angela. Frederico was a great host for on the first night there, he takes us to town in his Mercedes and shows us the best restaurants, the town’s main promenade area, and where the Fiat Family (from Milano) has their hill-top estates overlooking the harbor of Levanto. We learned also that Frederico just ran the New York City marathon the previous month. He so inspired Joan that she began running again every morning from that point on during this trip. She thought he was quite the ‘dude’, for he was always wearing a long, black topcoat around the place. You could just tell he was always ready to ‘wheel and deal’ some business transaction. Each morning Angela served us our cappuccino with a Mickey Mouse happy face designed in cocoa on the top.

We seemed to end up having daily chats with Frederico each evening; he liked to hear all about our new adventures of the day. One day he asked us to help him do some editing of a new flyer he had just developed for his latest enterprise. This was an upcoming cooking school with lessons for tourists that he and Chef Massimo of Levanto will be starting in the spring. Everything will be local Ligurian and flambé style, with classes held at Chef’s restaurant in town. Frederico figured that if they can do this in Tuscany, no reason he can't pull it off in Levanto. When he heard that our next stop after Levanto, was the Hotel Palazzo Alexander in Lucca, he said that he always refers his clients to go there because it was mentioned in the ‘Rick Steves’ book. He then asked us to do him a favor and deliver some of his Villa Margherita brochures and flyers to the owner of the Palazzo in Lucca, which we did, and they liked that exchange at both ends. Frederico didn’t charge us for a bottle of wine we had while at his place as a token of doing this errand.

After three days we noticed that Frederico and Angela never seem to speak to each other. They each went about doing their own jobs perfectly but we never hear a word exchanged. While at their place, we ran into a couple there from St. Paul Minnesota, my home town, who are living for one year in Slovakia teaching English and History. Neato. Another day Joan does a morning run up to the hillside village of Lizza. She comes back and is telling Angela and me about how she found this little town called “Lizzie”. Angela hears this, smiles, and she tells us it is like the word “pizza”, but you pronounce it with an “L”, Lizza. This was another of Joan’s famous language conquests.

Great Bed and Breakfast in Levanto

by deecat about Villa Margherita by the Sea (Bed and Breakfast)

Villa Margherita by the Sea Bed and Breakfast is a restored classic Italian Villa that has an incredible garden, shaded sitting areas, and views of the sea. Our room was immaculate with a nice bathroom and a firm bed. The breakfast room was lovely, and the food was excellent.

The young couple who owned it were efficient, friendly, multi-lingual (English, French, Spanish, Italian), and informative.

Each room is different, but all had old world antiques, television, phone, and internet access is available.

Some rooms have balconies. Our room was an end room (without the balcony) but we had the distant view of the sea.

Villa Margherita is a delightful place. I cannot emphasize enough that the location is excellent

You can walk to the heart of the ancient town, all restaurants, and the beach.%*

Boat, Train, or Walk The Cinque Terre

by deecat

The Cinque Terre consists of five small villages which "hang" on the cliffs overlooking the sea and is part of the Italian Riveria. There are not too many places to stay in these villages, and some of the best are way too expensive. Since a car is not practical, it is best to stay in Levanto and take the train or boat to the Cinque Terre. We stayed at the "Villa Margherita" in Levanto.

We took a boat one time to one of the villages.
Another time, we went by train. Between two of villages, we walked the trail. The boat took us past the five towns & stopped at Portovenere, which is an interesting port with breathtaking scenery. There is a castle-like structure which you can climb up to take super pictures of the sea, the sailboats, and the sunbathers.

When we went by train, we caught a train to the last village of the Cinque Terre. We stayed long enough in each village to capture the "flavor" of that particular location. We walked from the second town to the third. The walk was great and panoramic, indeed. The path was along the edge of a cliff out over the water. It took us about 40 minutes. Then we took the train the rest of the way.
The towns that we saw were Riomaggiore, Manorola, Corniglia, and Monterosso.

I recommend the Cinque Terre because it is a different look at the Italian way of life. It is mellow, environmental, and awe inspiring.

We falled in love with this hotel!!!!

The Perfect Location to Cinque Terre

by TripAdvisor Member LovesCooking

The Villa Margherita Bed & Breakfast in Levanto was the perfect location and base to stay as we toured Cinque Terre. It was a 5 minute train ride from the Cinque Terre town of Monterossa. It was charming. Our room was very large and the bathroom was very big. Our room was decorated with a beautiful tile floor and french doors opened to the room which was situated off the garden. We even had a little patio with two chairs. The owners were extremely friendly. They even provided transportation to and from the train station for our arrival and departure. Villa Margherita is only a 5-10 minute walk from the train station so we could come and go during our trips back and forth to Cinque Terre. I would not only stay there again but confidently recommend it to others.

Very Nice

by TripAdvisor Member remaddi

We spent 3 days at Villa Margherita and had a very nice stay. The owners were most helpful when we needed anything. They were happy to make recomendations for places to eat and offered to take us in their car to locations in town. The room was small but nice. We would recomend it and would stay there again.


Great Apartments

by TripAdvisor Member Candy47

I stayed at The Villa Margherita in 2005 and loved it. Federico & Mario Campodonico were very helpful. I missed my flight on the return, went back to Levanto, and Federico put me in an apartment (Levanto Rentals) and the place was great. That apartment was called "Apartment Corsaro". Spacious, clean, secure. I visited Levanto again in 2006 and requested an apartment. He put me in a different one "Apartment Platani" which was equally as clean, spacious, secure. I would highly recommend this establishment. You will never be disappointed.

Wow. Loved it!

by TripAdvisor Member Judith021

We were so wonderfully surprised at this B&B gem in Levanto! It was the best location for hiking the cinque terre (great fun there), as it allowed us to stay a bit off the beaten tourist path. The proprietor, Federico, was tremendously helpful with our trains, plans, and suggestions. Loved the garden, had a restful early eve wine and cheese break there. Beautiful memories, and the Villa Margherita is among them.

Any B&B in Levanto?

by sararosa

I am planning a trip to Levanto, this is last minute planning for the end of Septmmber of this year. I was hoping to find a nice B&B or hotel with a view close to the beach. I am mostly looking for a warm friendly family run establishment with Authentic Italian breakfast. Thank-you for helping.
