I recently had the great pleasure of visiting the wonderful San Damian resort in Imperia Italy. The B&B is located in the hills overlooking Imperia in a quaint village. The rooms overlook the town of Imperia as well as the Mediterranean Sea. The view at night is as spectacular as it is during the day. I could see the twinkling lights of the city at night. Imperia is a wonderful coastal city with lots of sightseeing available. The hosts Roberto Gardini & Pamela Kranz were gracious and charming. The pool is at the edge of the property and so has excellent views as well. A buffet breakfast was served each morning. An assortment of torts, breads, pastries, local meats, fresh eggs and other food items were served each morning. Comfortable chaises were located so guests could sit and enjoy the incredible view. The room was very comfortable and furnished with lovely pottery from the area. The B&B is located just a short drive from the Nice airport off of the highway running from Nice to Genoa. The beautiful plantings and flowers added to the charm. I will definitely return to this exquisite place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imagine to be on the deck of a ship, able to dominate the sea… but still, deepened in the green of a magic forest… Relais San Damian is hidden among the hills of Liguria’s countryside. You have to move slowly to search and discover this discrete oasis, which is wholly dedicated to travellers, aiming for silence and total relax.Light and fresh air outside, warm and welcoming inside, these are the spacious suites of San Damian, tucked away under a vaulted porch, facing the garden, or with their own private terrace. All designed and decorated tastefully, with antique furniture, a fireplace for autumn and winter evenings, and attention for the smallest details.Bedrooms as protected under ancient brick arcades, or on a separate level with pine parquet floors. Every small detail meant to make guests feel safe and protected, like at home, but free as it should be on a holiday. Marble, wood, cotto, handcrafted linen all materials used are precious yet entirely natural, creating a charming atmosphere and allowing guests lingering thoughts of times back then... when things were less hectic and life more relaxed. Breakfast, served on the veranda facing the pool, is the first caress of a new and sunny day, tasting the home made specialities enjoying life just one bit more.You will be awakened by the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and cakes from the oven. A rich breakfast buffet prepared in the veranda by the swimmingpool will help you start a wonderfull day. Fresh fruit and home made jams to go on the morning rolls, a choice of cheeses, salami, hams and eggs .You may have a day of leisure just choosing to relax with a book of our library while sitting under tha palms, or, by taking a refreshing dip in our pool.Or perhaps seeking out beaches, coastal bike paths or mountains, refreshing hikes in the woods or medieval villages nestled on the slopes with towers, historical dwellings and old churches.
