We at Genius Loci Travel are proud of our selection of accommodations!
As stated by some of our clients: one of the strengths of our tours lies in the careful selection of the right accommodation for the type of tour, the type of clients and the type of area.
NOT the obvious places, but small, well-situated, often family-run places, with a personal welcome.
Our accommodations are often small boutique hotels, but can also be wonderful Bed & Breakfasts (yes, this is the Italian word!), as well as beautiful agriturismo’s, rural accommodations, which are often not just farms, but real countryside relais.
All are chosen for their accessibility to the trail and for the warmth of their welcome. Many are located in historical buildings or placed in exceptional spots, blended into the surrounding landscape. On some tours you will find that accommodations will vary somewhat within the hospitality quality grades, which adds a touch of character to the region or the country that they are passing through.
All give you the feeling of being truly in Italy, and not in just another hotel anywhere in the world. All represent the best price/quality ratio the area offers and they all employ local people.
Of course, when travelling in post-covid times, you will be particularly careful about the safety, cleanliness and social distancing. Therefore we have double-checked all accomodations we work with. Luckily, virtually all have only a small number of rooms and plenty of space, especially those located in the rural areas. We’ll be able to assure your health & safety!
On the whole and for these reasons we try to avoid chain and big name hotels. Many of our hoteliers are walkers themselves and take an active and helpful interest in our clients’ progress. Most of the places we have been using for many years and we have a good personal relationship with the owners.
Genius Loci Travel also offers a small handpicked selection of unique villa’s in several areas in Italy. And we do not just rent gorgeous villas: we also provide all options to spend your time in the most pleasant way, according to your interests: walking, biking, sightseeing, swimming, or perhaps a language or cooking course.
We are happy to help you find the perfect spot for your stay in Italy, of course during your tour, but also before or after your hiking, biking or sea kayaking tour!
Genius Loci Travel teams up with Booking.com
Occasionally it can happen that we do not offer accomodation in the place you request. Or that for a personal reason you want to stay in a specific hotel we do not work with on a regular basis.
However, also in these cases we can help you: thanks to our collaboration with Booking.com we can offer you the best possible accomodation of your (own!) all over Italy – and abroad.
