About the Author

Rosie Whitehouse developed a love of travel when her parents bundled the family in the car and drove to Liguria in the summer of 1966. When her eldest son was just a month old she made her second trip to Liguria and fell in love with it. Thirty years later, Rosie now knows the place like the back of her hand. There is a long family connection with the region and Rosie spends part of the year in the house that her husband’s family have owned for over 45 years. Rosie speaks Italian but is frequently corrected by her daughters who actually speak Italian with a Ligurian accent. Rosie is one of the UK’s leading experts on family travel and over the last thirty years she has explored every corner of Liguria with her family and can offer a real insider’s view on what to do, where to eat and where to stay.
