The hotel with its 31 rooms is set out as a mini-village with the rooms set off open alleyways at three different levels. The alleyways open onto larger courtyards where you can sit and enjoy the scenery or enjoy that well earned drink after you daytime trek. All rooms have views onto either the mountains or onto the valley and the coastline below.
We had one of the Superior rooms for our 2 night stay in early September. Lovely with great space and a wonderfully comfortable bed.
The hotel management are very friendly and helpful.
There are COVID-19 controls in place. Strategically placed hand washes/sanitisers are evident. Wearing masks in communal areas is mandatory.
The breakfast buffet is served by the staff to whom you make your plate requests. They and only they handle your food before it is served .The system works well.
Other than breakfast the hotel only offers a bar and coffee service. There is no restaurant per se - so lunch and dinner need to be taken elsewhere (unless you decide to make your own meal and eat-in).
There is a swimming pool, though we did not get around to using it on this occasion.
Parking at the property is controlled. There are 31 rooms and 31 parking spaces. There are also spaces in the covered garage (at extra cost).
Also of note is that the hotel operates a shuttle service which can be used for downtown Levanto drop-offs and pick-ups. This can prove handy as finding a parking space in town can be a challenge - particularly at weekend.

Al Terra di Mare
A Family run hotel on top of a hill overlookinh Levanto. Friendly staff, excellent service and super clean with continental style breakfast. regular and prompt Shuttle service to town center and back to the hotel made it easy to get to the train station, resturants, and the beach. Highly recommend Al Terra di Mare

Beautiful and well run hotel
A lovely spot out of the way in Levanto. Especially good if you want to escape the crowds in the Cinque Terre villages. It is 2km outside the town of Levanto, not really walkable in the summer heat as it is a climb up to the hotel. I would recommend having a rental car as the hotel shuttle doesn’t operate from 11.10-4.50 and there is no restaurant or shop nearby so we did go hungry a couple of days. The hotel does have ice cream and crisps and drinks at the pool.
The hotel shuttle is very handy for getting to the train/town but you need to book in and often we were too late and had to get taxis (only €10 so not too bad)
The hotel is beautiful and run well by the family who are most helpful. We travelled with a toddler and it wasn’t really suited for her. The hotel being on a hilled terrace there were dangerous drops especially down at the pool area which made it hard to relax with a child. There are a lot of steps too as it is the layout of the site. A great place for a couples holiday as it is relaxing and quiet. We paid extra for a sea view, there isn’t too much of a sea view but the terrace was nice to sit out and look at the views of the hills.
Overall a beautiful spot and would definitely recommend for a couples holiday and some peace and quiet. A good base to explore Cinque Terre.

Accurate photos except for the power lines that run on either side of the property. Beds were comfortable, bathroom super clean and nicely tiled, air conditioning unit was annoying (loud, gurgled & automatically shut off every time the door opened), manual exterior shutters only diffused the morning light (no black-out curtains), and without screens they provided no guard against bugs.
You're a captive audience here, so enjoy the charming setting on the hillside above Levanto: there's nothing worth doing within walking distance of this hotel. Shuttle to town with advance notice and for a hefty fee (not sure there even is a car rental in Levanto). Count on 7 minutes to the beach driving, or a 35 minute walk. The hotel has a nice, quiet pool but little else to do unless sitting in a hard chair on a patio suits you.
No restaurant on site. No kitchenette in our room. Breakfast (included) is an amazing spread with something for everyone served from 8-10:30am. At 6:30pm a limited menu of caprese salad, cheese plate, savory pies, etc is available for purchase.
For a hotel, there is a surprising lack of hospitality. We did not feel particularly welcome and certainly were not treated like valued guests. I suppose, having stayed at the Eden Rock Resort in Florence prior to our arrival here, we got spoiled by its amazing staff and just expected similar hospitality.
