Three years have passed since my last visit to La Meridiana Resort in the summer of 2014 but it seems just like yesterday when I last set foot on the grounds of my favorite hotel. Nothing much has changed. The atmosphere is still the same as I remember it to be. Luxurious, welcoming, cozy, professional and closely feels like a home away from home. And now there is Posh, a Pembroke Welsh Corgie whom proprietors Alessandra and Edmondo Segre have fondly added to their family recently. She has taken the role of welcoming all the guests with her perennially smiling face while her four short legs make decisive strides towards her family’s new guests. A long sniff here, a friendly look there, perhaps even a smile can escape from her then you are approved before she goes back to her post at the entrance of the hotel.
Welcome to La Meridiana Resort Relais & Chateaux!
La Meridiana Resort
has always made sure that their four-legged guests are as comfortable as their two-legged guests.
They have their own towels, biscuits, blankets, they are encouraged to be set free in the spacious gardens of the hotel and they are more than welcome to dine with their families in the hotel’s restaurants where they are also given their own doggy bowls (but on leashes indoors my furry friends).
The rooms proposed for guests with dogs are the ones that have access to the garden. Indeed, what a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious doggy life it is at La Meridiana! La Meridiana was awarded the Animal Friendly Hotel Awards 2011 by the Italian Ministry of Tourism.
Both restaurants respect the old tradition of Ligurian cooking using the freshest and best ingredients sourced from the area.
