    Bedrooms and suites are spread between the Casa Madre, the 19th-century barbershop Casa del Borgo, and the medieval Casa del Fienile (the barn house) a little further away. All of the rooms make excellent use of the characterful antique buildings, so expect parquet floors, exposed wooden ceilings, decorative stonework and pretty views of the village. The two charming rooms in the Casa del Fienile are particularly atmospheric, decorated with antiques belonging to owner Elena’s family.

    Why so chic?

    Why travel experts chose this hotel

    Chic Treats

    Only when you book with Chic

    A unique concept, Relais del Maro offers guests the chance to enjoy the traditional hospitality and authentic pleasures of rural Italian village life. The result of a lot of passion, and a little bit of madness, the fourteen rooms and suites of this Chic Retreat are spread across three historic buildings in the charming Ligurian village of Borgomaro. The rooms and common areas of Relais del Maro have been furnished using fabrics and handcrafted objects by local artisans, lending a cosily welcoming atmosphere.

    The use of alternative energy sources, and a commitment to repurposing existing buildings to reduce the environmental impacts of building management and construction have led to Relais del Maro being recognised as an ecologically-friendly hotel. A commitment to sustainability is also clear in the hotel’s use of local, naturally-grown produce for its spectacular breakfast buffets.

    With nothing to disturb the peace and silence apart from the sound of the stream gently gurgling through the village, Relais del Maro is a real sanctuary for those looking to kick back and unwind in the beautiful Italian countryside.

    Dining

    The breakfast at Relais del Maro is a feast of local, organic and seasonal products. Sweet biscotti, freshly baked breads and all-natural jams sit alongside the very finest cheeses and cured meats sourced from the surrounding hills. The emphasis is on natural, healthy eating, and the hotel caters for a wide variety of special diets including celiac, vegan and vegetarian. 

    The hotel serves light lunches, and there are traditional trattorias in the village as well as many eateries in the surrounding area for more substantial meals.

    Activities

    Lounge beside the hotel’s pool, which sits within a picturesque garden behind the main house, Casa Madre. A former butcher’s shop dating back to the 18th-century, the house has a number of cosy common areas and a well-stocked library.

    Borgomaro itself is charmingly unspoiled, and as you wander through its cobbled streets, peeking into the ancient medieval buildings, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. The surrounding Impero Valley is an Arcadian idyll, and there are numerous hiking paths for those that want to immerse themselves in this beautiful natural landscape. Further afield, the Ligurian coast has many Blue Flag beaches and picturesque coastal villages to explore.
