We stayed here for one night on a driving holiday to Italy. What a find. (Actually has it's issues on directions, but worth a bit of a detour and it pays to really study their directions carefully). The location is on a hill looking over the valley and sea with great views and very peaceful. They have a beautiful garden and pool and the breakfast was execllent. The owners are friendly and helpful.
The rooms we had (we travelled with friends) were huge and have their own kitchen area, dining table and sofas as well as the compulsory en suite shower room. There is plenty of outside seating away from the pool.
San Damien does not have a restaurant but when we arrived the owners had left us a substancial snack which was lovely. If you have had a good lunch this would probably be enough but if you are relying on an evening meal you need to drive back to Imperia which coming back along narrow lanes in the dark could be a bit nerve wracking. We had not eaten sufficently at lunch so drove back to Imperia and went to the supermarket and bought salad, bread etc which we were able to prepare in our rooms. Although there is a kitchen there is no oven and only a hob to heat the kettle and no pans to cook with and they do state only cold food to be consumed. If I have a slight critism it would be that due to the location and providing a more than adequate areas to eat in/at, at San damien there is a shortge of crockery and glasses provided. Yes we would certainly return and would like to stay longer.

Room Tip: The whole place is quiet!

Relais San Damian is a beautiful agriturismo in the hills overlooking Imperia. Our room was huge & tastefully furnished, with a mezzanine bedroom, large bathroom (no bath), a large private terrace with outdoor furniture & fab views, a handy fridge and even a four-ring hob. Really outstanding accommodation. The breakfast, as everyone has said, is exceptionally good, one of the best I've ever had in Italy. Owners & staff very warm, friendly and efficient. Loved it. The only thing to note is that, because the agriturismo doesn't do evening meals, you always have to drive somewhere to get dinner. The owners' recommendations for restaurants were all very good. San Damian is about a 20 min drive into Imperia (which is a great working city by the way, with lovely centro storico and working port area of Oneglia with good Saturday market).

We have been several tmes to this fabulous and tranquil place off the busy riviera track. Family owned and run with a lovely couple who keep the place tidy and always do their utmost to help our every wish. Breakfast al fresco with a nice view of Imperia and the sea is highly recommended. Nice and clean rooms and several good restaurants nearby.

We fully enjoyed our stay at San Damian. The large rooms (almost suites, combined with the comfort of an hotel), the whole location with a terrific pool are fantastic and the service is extraordinary generous - the best we ever experienced. Breakfast is wonderful, including a broad variety of homemade cakes. For dinner we preferred to take the about 30 minutes walk through the olive grove attached tot the location down to Dolcedo - since the wine there is very good. For the way back there is a taxi (Angelo, for his number ask the staff at San Damian) or one could walk back through the olive yard (wiht maglite no problem). We also took the bus to the beach (imperia or porto maurizio) - the bus station is directly in front of the areal. San Damian is a magnificent place in every respect.

Room Tip: all rooms are magnificent, quiet, large and furnished with excellent taste.

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.

Room Tip: The first floor suites are highly desirable. It is a small place so I imagine all rooms are good.
