Just one mile outside Levanto in the Cinque Terre region, this charming country estate dates back to the 1700s. All rustic-style rooms come equipped with satellite TV and free private parking.

Villa Agnese is set in a large villa surrounded by vineyards, outside central Sestri Levante. It offers a sun terrace with swimming pool and lounge chairs, and indoor parking.

The staff, the food, the setting, the buildings (not too surprisingly - being a castle), the garden! Tip: Remember to order your Italian coffee in the morning and do not settle for the coffee machine.
As a northern European I missed rustic bread and soft-boiled eggs.
The castle, the gardens, the secret lifts, the breakfasts, the private beach, the setting, the furniture and artefacts and the staff. Not budget but great value for money. Will definitely come again and recommend it.
One night they had a loud wedding reception but otherwise I just loved it.
the room with a very nice view, the friendly and helpful stuff.
The nature pool was closed. A hotel like this should have a heated pool round the year.

Just the simply view of the beauty of the wondef Ligurian panorama make me feel good.... But the hotel is a remarkable 20th century castle that make me definitely delighted me!
Location, staff, privacy, view
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived the website does not do them justice. It is a great location with private park. Elevator to the docks. Elevator to the private swimming beach and great sunning locations.
Elevators to town and swimming; grounds; breakfast: staff; comfort of room; parking available
Wifi not usable in room; shower would not stay in place; hot water not constant- temperature changing frequently; no English language newspapers; inadequate English language tv;I thought the restaurant pricing a bit high- would have been nice to have more mid range priced items.
The ambiance was just gorgeous. The staff was very helpful, the food was good and the location was ideal. I would go back again.
The entrance to the pool was a little to be desired but once inside the pool area was great.
views, food, private park, ocean pool, art, linens, staff....everything. This place is divine.
I liked everything!!
Beautiful historic castle hotel. Excellent customer service. Location on the hill directly overlooking Sestre Levante. Gated drive into the grounds. wonderful park with stunning walk around the cliffs overlooking the sea. Roof top terrace. Breakfast terrace. Double aspect views all around. Exquisite.
Excellent location. Nice view from the breakfast room. Handy private parking.
Too expensive for the services offered. Lack of attention to details. Poor choice of food and drinks at the beach bar. No soundproof in the rooms so very noisy day and night in addition if your room is in front of the old and very noisy lift can be extremely unpleasant/annoying and ear plugs are necessary.

Noisy wedding party
Location was fabulous, staff were very helpful and friendly, lovely pool area. Stunning restaurant views.
Slightly aggrieved about paying extra for sun loungers.
Beautiful Castle, located on the high hill, however there are 2 lifts, taking you to the private beach or to the Marina. Hotel surrounded by amazing private park, there is awesome swimming pool there, with sea water and fishes just passing by your legs, sea view. If the water is calm you can swim from swimming pool directly to the Bay of Fairy Tales. And this breathtaking sunset you can observe from the terrace located on the 3rd floor...
Wi-Fi did not work well, probably due to very thick walls. It is better to go to the breakfast a bit earlier otherwise you need to wait long before food is supplemented.
Location is perfect, territory really huge, the private beach ("natural pool") is absolutely safe during stormy days ("pool" is almost separated from the sea but you can swim out to the open sea if the weather is good) and easy reachable by the lift (except wheelchairs and strollers: the path to the lift is quite rocky). The other lift connects the castle to the port and you also could use the car and ordinary road to get to. Staff is competent and very friendly without annoying excessive "hospitality accentuation". Breakfast is wide enough (remember that standard italian breakfast includes coffee and brioche) and you can anyway ask anything additional if you need (I checked it). After my weekend break I've got a feeling of the whole week passed.
Yes, the single is really small. This is not "didn't like" but just the fact.(but it's comfortable and includes a stunning view as extra). I wish the pool was opened till the sunset (not till 19.00). Nothing more.
Location and private beachfront
great location, amazing value for money. Top Spot
Location. Gardens.Room and communal spaces.
Restaurant somewhat over-stretched, with large wedding party being catered for late afternoon.
This is by far one of the most beautiful hotels we've stayed in. The location and views are spectacular. The room is very comfortable and we had a spa bath which was lovely. The breakfast was excellent and overlooking the marina. There are lots of nice restaurants to choose from. I loved it and would definitely recommend a visit.
We couldn't find the lift to the private beach even though we asked reception twice and looked twice. The wifi was poor.
This hotel was a dream! Booked a surprise romantic wknd as b-day gift for my husband and we were both incredibly pleased! The view from our room (on the bay) was amazing - room gorgeous and comfortable - restaurant impressive - beach+cliffside relaxation everything could have wanted and more. The staff thruout was very nice and seemed to go out of their way to take care of us! All in all, this is the kind of easy luxury that a dream wknd on the coast should be - I will definitely be coming back to this hotel and and can recommend it whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a romantic getaway! Beautiful!
Nothing negative whatsoever to say about this place!
Location, weather :-)
Have to pay for the private beach !!! On the booking confirmation was no info about that.
Excellent, beautiful place for holiday.
