How to plan a luxury holiday in Cinque Terre

A luxury holiday does not necessarily equate to expensive hotels and food.

Instead, in the modern world of fast meals, digital relations and chaotic traffic, we believe that it’s about the luxury of being able to experience a new level of relaxation while you get soaked in the history, flavours and traditions of your vacation destination.

How can you plan a luxury holiday of this kind in Cinque Terre? Here are our tips.

Authentic Connections & Experiences

Can you imagine yourself meeting a heroic winegrower in his vertical vineyards, and tasting the rare local wine in a traditional cellar carved in the rock?

What sounds like an adventure is the best, most memorable way for you to learn about the meaning of heroic winemaking in Cinque Terre.

What about embarking on an amazing sea journey with a tour on a private boat? Not only can you admire the picturesque Cinque Terre coastline away from the hustle and bustle, but on board you can enjoy a delicious lunch with local wine, prepared by the captain who is also a Chef and expert food lover!

The combination of meeting locals and enjoying selected activities creates an authentic experience that takes you to a completely new level of immersion.

Boutique Accommodation

Forget the 5-star hotel stay and look for small boutique accommodation that allows you to get a genuine feel of the Cinque Terre lifestyle and beauty.

These smaller hotels or guesthouses are going to provide the same level of comfort and service, but everything is going to have a rustic and very warm feel.

Accommodation shouldn’t be just a space where to sleep, but a place where to meet, talk, relax and complete the experience you came for.

Quality over quantity

Some people spend too much time trying to cram their trip with as many different tours and locations as they can.

This is often going to make the entire holiday feel rushed and stressful, not to mention the negative impact that fast mass tourism can have on the social and environmental aspects of the destination.

If you want to make the most out of your time yet enjoy a luxurious trip at your own pace, with no stress, no queues and no large groups rushing into you, then relying on local insiders might be the best solution.

In fact, they can help you avoid tourist traps, identify bespoke itineraries that go beyond the famous sights and that help you capture the true essence of Cinque Terre.
