Relais del Maro

Borgomaro, Imperia

In tranquil Borgomaro, a wonderful hotel spread across three old buildings. Stylish rooms, a tempting pool and delicious Italian breakfasts…


14 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


A superb hotel spread across three old buildings in the sleepy Ligurian village of Borgomaro. Delightful Elena and her family have converted a 19th-century butcher’s shop, her grandparents’ home and a 14th-century stone house into a stylish ‘Albergo Diffuso’. Life is wonderfully slow here; church bells mark time and only ducks quacking in the river disturb the silence. You check in at Casa Madre, where there’s a cosy library for afternoon tea, a garden planted with rambling roses and fragrant jasmine, and an irresistible pool. Impressive breakfast spreads featuring biscotti, cured meat and focaccia are served here too – you can even start the day with a glass of prosecco! Bedrooms in this traditional, double-fronted house are light and airy; some overlook the garden and village square. Wander across the river to Casa del Borgo where you can sleep in elegant rooms with vaulted ceilings; room 12 has a luxurious roll-top bath. Casa del Fienile, 40 metres away, has two atmospheric bedrooms furnished with antiques including a wardrobe from Elena’s grandmother’s dowry. Borrow thoughtful guides to local walks and beaches.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Elena Scalambrin

  • Borgomaro is a little town with 300 inhabitants: it’s the perfect place for peace and quiet only 15km from the western Ligurian coast.
  • Imperia’s beaches are only 15km away – choose between sand or shingle!
  • For those who love immersing themselves in nature, there are walks right from the town, and a short drive away, where you can see panoramic views over mountains, coast and olive tree groves.
  • About an hour away are the famous towns of Alassio and Sanremo, perfect for shopping-lovers and with a more urban atmosphere.
  • The Côte d'Azur, with Monte Carlo and Nice, is a short drive away, for those who fancy a taste of France.
  • And for wine lovers, you can reach the Langhe region in about an hour and a half.
