How to reach us

Diffcult to find, hard to leave.

La Sosta di Ottone III is situated at the top end of the village of Chiesanuova which is not accessible by car.
As we are situated in a remote location, we strongly recommend that first time guests arrive before 6.00PM (18.00).

At the bottom of the village, roughly 150 metres from the Hotel, you will find:

  • La Sosta’s private, unguarded and free of charge car park;
  • La Sosta’s monorail: it can take 2 guests with luggage up to the Hotel. Instructions on how to call for the monorail and how to action the monorail are available on a post with video intercom beside the monorail. It takes roughly 4 minutes for the monorail to arrive and 4 minutes to go back up. The monorail is not available at nighttime.

Alternatively, guests can walk up the 150 meters through the Village.

A few tips:

Remember that a car is not useful in the Cinque Terre, as the roads are narrow and cars are not permitted at all in the tiny towns.
The best way to visit them is by foot, boat or train.

For a visitor there are essentially 2 options:
stay in the Cinque Terre or close (5 km) to the Cinque Terre.
It’s very much a decision of whether you prefer to stay in the crowd (people, restaurants, cafes, shops ecc) or in a quieter environment.
La Sosta guests prefer the second option and many are without a car.
