Looking out over the Gulf of Tigullio, the beachside Grand Hotel Villa Balbi is one of the most original and stunning 4 star hotels in Sestri Levante, a picturesque little seaside town approximately halfway between Genoa and La Spezia. Trendy shops and great places to eat crowd the town's narrow streets, and there are lots of opportunities to do water sports, go walking or jogging, and play tennis or golf in the vicinity.

Built in the 17th century as the holiday villa for the aristocratic Genoese Brignole family, Villa Balbi has been a favorite place for summer and winter getaways every since. This aristocratic mansion boasts grandiose halls, marble features, and manicured gardens, making this luxury Sestri Levante hotel an architectural marvel.

You can enjoy the finest Ligurian cuisine and a wide range of international dishes at the elegant hotel restaurant, Il Parco. The hotel also features a seasonal outdoor swimming pool and well-appointed conference room.

Free wireless internet access is available in the lobby.

Friendly and very helpful staff . The rooms were absolutely beautiful. Every detail you could think of was provided just as the other reviewers have mentioned. The room did not have a sea view, but the views were still lovely. Everything was an easy walk from the hotel, only a few steps from the town center. We loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again when returning to Sestri Levante. We were fortunate to visit Liguria before it is over-run with tourists and we loved it.
