Travellers' Choice
Grand Hotel Villa Balbi is an old aristocratic XVII century villa; it stands on the seafront of Sestri Levante, a few yards only from the beautiful sea of the Gulf of Tigullio, between Portofino and Cinqueterre. Converted in 1947 into an elegant Hotel, Villa Balbi has elegante and rich interiors, made precious by rare and valuable antique furnishings, tapestries, pictures, precious marble, beautiful parquet and finely finished ceilings. The Balbi palace, once the mansion of noble, aristocratic families, site of historical events and abode of famous men and women, still keeps all its charm today. A quiet and very comfortable Hotel, with careful and professional service. With its own pool, private beach, restaurant and parking area is the ideal location to spend a relaxing holiday.

Friendly staff creating relaxing atmosphere. Nice and historic surroundings. Clean and spacy rooms. Breakfast was enjoyed in the garden in the shadow of old trees. Very relaxing and making the holiday a memoreable one.

We loved the elegant surroundings of Villa Balbi, staying for five nights with our teenage sons. So many restaurants in the neighbourhood, beautiful history in the walls and sunshine and the beach. All that was needed.

Love the Villa Balbi spirit, the old charming hotel and the perfect location in terms of town and beach. The garden is a super place to retreat and have peace. The staff is not an anonymous mass that just provides high service, but 'real' people who want the hotel guests to have a good stay.
