It is very difficult to find a good hotel by the sea in this part of Italy so we ventured inland and came across the Hotel Aljope. Having found it we now go back time and time again, always for an overnight stay.
The hotel is not far from the motorway but very tricky to find as it is on the summit of a hill with very windy roads but, it has the most amazing views. It must be about 30 kilometres from the sea yet the expansive vista one experiences is breathtaking if you have a head for heights. The family run hotel is like a step back in time and they are very friendly if you speak Italian. The rooms are basic but very clean.
Dinner begins with a choice from the buffet. The food is a bit hit and miss: it can be excellent but it is always adequate. If you are lucky enough to stay there when they are having a function (wedding, for example) you are served what is on the menu. There are always dishes of the day and if it is not to your taste they will cook something else for you.More
