The smell of the flowers and trees, the color of the bouganvilla and the pool, the number of cakes at breakfast, the spaciousness of our room, the air of calm and peace- this is my time at San Damian. One can just gaze out to sea sitting at a table with Frette tablecloth sipping a fine wine under the palm tree and contemplate where to go next. We swam in the sea, visited Monte Carlo and dined by the yachts having fresh shrimp. Our host, Pamela, is most charming- she knew it was my birthday and when I went for breakfast- there was a cake, large bouquet of flowers and a birthday candle. When we arrived we found a beautiful plate of sandwiches and wine waiting for us. It is truly a jewel.
- 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. Don't forget to wear comfortable walking shoes!If you need to work on your laptop, we have a wifi connection by the pool and in the veranda.For dinner we will then recommend the best hostarias to learn about old-fashioned cooking with garden vegetables and fresh cought fish so to appreciate the semplicity of ligurian cuisine. ... more less
