We went back to Monterosso in march 2008 for the first time since the euro was the currency of choice. Our destination, La Spiaggia hotel, for saturday 22 march which was a very special day, plus a few more days to enjoy the Cinque Terre.
Many times we had made this journey since the hotel was a one star pensione on the beach and we used to trudge up the long marble staircase with our heavy luggage. What wonderful surprise to find a modern hotel with an elevator and to be so warmly welccomed by Andrea Poggi and his family.
A cozy room at the top with a stylish Italian bathroom was assigned and after that we all enjoyed a glass of wine in the sunshine beside the Ligurian sea. In the old days it would have been a glass of grappa and THEN you got the key.
Andrea Poggi can recommend wonder ful places to see as wells as to eat whether it is around the corner, or under the bridge or delicious tender Ravioli in Pignone or excellent donkey stew at the Gufo Nero in Ghemme on the way Malpensa Airport.
We were so happy to see Andrea again and will return because we know we will always be well looked after at La Spiaggia by the wonderful Andrea Poggi and his friendly staff.
