Our house was an ancient share cropping farm of 1600, totally renovated in 2005.
Today it comprises 25 magnificent acres of land and woods.
Locanda del Papa is located in the ancient Commune of Carpena, on the hills behind the Cinque Terre( Riomaggiore ), a few feet from the Foce Pass, from where the view extends to La Spezia and the area contained between Portovenere and Lerici called the Gulf of Poets.
There is no problem with parking, since the property is totally enclosed and the access road is entered through a gate.
There are available six rooms with queen-sized beds. In the three largest rooms extra beds may be added.
All rooms have private bath , TV and wi fi internet connection ( in the room)
In winter the rooms are heated from a central furnace assuring the maximum comfort and in the largest rooms there are also wood stoves with visible flames.
In the summer there is no need of air conditioning. Nature provides it with its cool evening breeze.

I know that many of you wish to visit the Cinque Terre. Well, this is a good place. We are 6 km from the La Spezia RR Station and the train is the best means of reaching the Cinque Terre (it takes 8 minutes to Riomaggiore and the Via dell'Amore (Lovers Lane).
We are also 7 km from the embarkation point of the passenger boats that in the summer visit all the towns along the Gulf of Poets and the Cinque Terre.
By car you can reach many places. We are 15 km from Monterosso and 20 km from Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre. La Spezia is very close with its famous naval museum and civic museum Amedeo Lia. Portovenere, designated by UNESCO in 1997 a World Heritage Site, is only 16 km away from our House. Lerici, with its enchanted bay and its beaches certified “Bandiera Blu” (Blue Flag) for their cleanliness is only 12 km away.
Tellaro, designated one of the 100 most beautiful small towns of Italy is 4 km from Lerici.
Are you a hiking fan ? Path no. 501 of the Cinque Terre begins at our door, you can reach Riomaggiore, first of Cinque Terre.... in around 2,5 hours. The city bus stop is just 1500 feet from our House and the La Spezia RR Station only 15 minutes away (busses run every 45-50 minutes).
