The Experience

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.

We could not have been more delighted with our stay at Relais del Maro. From our warm welcome on arrival to the daily hospitality, the staff we so kind and attentive. The breakfasts are a feast to enjoy each morning in the beautifully furnished dining room.

This is an extraordinary hotel where the personal service tops that of any 5 star hotel. The garden and pool are perfect for relaxing, and way the hotel is spread out makes you feel like you are part of village life. We loved the thorough guides provided by the hotel which give you an insight into restaurants, producers and places of interest, not only for the surrounding villages, but for the entire region. Thanks to Sawdays for the recommendation and to Elena and her welcoming team for making us feel so at home!

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.
