Hidden away in the village of Borgomaro, just a couple of miles from Italy's Ligurian coast, Relais del Maro is a unique boutique hotel. A lot of passion and a little bit of madness has gone into the 14 rooms and suites which are spread out amongst beautifully restored little houses. The main building of this 'Albergo Diffuso', is situated on the site of the old butcher's shop, and this rather different boutique hotel concept allows guests the chance to experience authentic village life with the houses and rooms all less than 250m from the main building and reception.
Liguria, in northern Italy, enjoys the best of the sea and the land. This narrow piece of land nestled between the Mediterranean, Alps and Apennines has pristine beaches and larges areas of woodland, olives, vineyards and flowers. The beautiful beaches, especially Balzi Rossi (red rocks) and the Egg Beach are the first things to experience if visiting during the warmer months, the water is crystal clear and warm and many of the beaches are Blue Flag meaning they are super clean! Hiking, bicycling, sightseeing, wine tasting or simple relaxing, anything and everything is possible during your stay at Relais del Maro and all is within easy reach by car.
Breakfast at Relais del Maro is a well thought out affair, a feast of local, organic and seasonal products including biscotti, freshly-made pastries, cured meats, cheeses, salamis and exquisite jams, natural juices and yoghurt. Top this all off with freshly ground Italian coffee and a smile and your day has started on a very good note! Guests can enjoy a leisurely lunch on the terrace and choose from one of the delicious pasta dishes or a salad and panino.
