"Our family's history has been firmly anchored in our city's tourism for generations, and 'it is proudly a shine to the future wealth of those who love this work, a work that offers great satisfaction."
On April 14, 1923, the Ganduglia family purchased the fortified municipal property known as the "Bastion of the Portello" or the "Spur," property dating back to the 15th century that later became the Hotel with restaurant as well as a historic home notified by the Fine Arts.
This transformation in truth dates back many years earlier as attested by the 1911 Chamber of Commerce letter in the name of my father Riccardo known as the first seafaring entrepreneur, even before being a hotelier, with his wife Letizia, devoted to cooking.
The prestige of this period palace upgraded over the years, however, can be attributed to their son Bruno and his wife Liliana appointed in the 1970s as a lady of hospitality by the chamber of commerce for their dedication and affability in directing the management of Hotel Miramare.
We are proud to say that this year our hotel turns 100 years old, 100 years of uninterrupted activity through the children Annarita and Riccardo (third descendants and third generation), activity carried out in the tradition of a single family of hoteliers that now has in Matteo and Bianca (fourth descendants and fourth generation) the continuation of this legacy so beloved to be considered an excellence of our ancient city.
Enhancement in care and constant attention to our hotel guests are the strength of our business.
With the adjoining medieval house, famous for the unmistakable beauty of its tower dating back to the 13th century with the characteristic Merli, Bifore and Monofore of the sea-view windows from which one can admire the characteristic Fishermen's Beach. There are not many charming hotels in the ancient villages along our coast that are 100 years old, and this can certainly help us understand and appreciate the ancient Maritime Republic of Noli more.
The foundation of Noli dates back from 1193 until 1797: during this long period, in fact, Noli emancipated itself from the feudal domination of the Marquis of Carretto by self-governing and prospering in total autonomy with only the protection of the Genoese Republic in which after 1797 it would be, with the arrival of Napoleon, incorporated under the French control of the Ligurian Republic.
