A charming Lerici break at a bayfront bolthole with sea views on the Italian Riviera, including all travel, breakfast, optional dinner and spa perks

With a history that dates back more than a century, the rather charming Hotel Shelley e Delle Palme is named after English poet Percy Shelley, one of the many creative types captivated by this beautiful pocket in Liguria, northern Italy. And with its crystalline bay and cliffside huddle of pastel-coloured buildings, it’s easy to see why Lerici captures the heart of every visitor who stumbles across this off-the-radar seaside town.

Sitting pretty at the eastern end of the Gulf of Poets, this 19th-century bolthole makes the most of its prime location – just 200 metres from the beach – with a sea-view sundeck and a sixth-floor breakfast space offering panoramic views. What's more, many of its 49 guestrooms look out over the glistening bay (yours included). Throw in a lovely spa with a Finnish sauna, an emotional shower and a creative treatment menu, and you have the perfect recipe for relaxation.

Good to know

A daily city tax of €1.50 per person, per night is to be paid directly to the hotel.
