The Relais Del Maro is a scattered hotel, consisting of 14 rooms distributed in 3 buildings located in the village of Borgomaro, a few kilometers from the Ligurian Sea. We want you to discover our country, by letting you spend your holiday in the authentic Liguria and bring you in a relaxed, slow life,typical of a village where everyone knows each other.
Reception and Breakfast Room
On the ground floor of the Casa Madre you wil find the reception, where you wil find al the help you might ned to organize your holiday or just to have a chat with our team and the room which is used for breakfast. We offer you a rich and varied selection of products and if the coffee is good, the cake is homemade and the waitress smiles at you, the day starts well!
Breakfast is particularly rich of quality products, bio products and local specialties. Every day on the buffet, there are traditional products from our nearby Valleys: biscotti, focaccia and pizza made by “Aunt Bruna” the unbeatable artisan from Borgomaro, as well as all our homemade specialties such us bread and briosches freshly-baked daily for our customers.
Throughout the past year, we visited farms and local companies to select the best quality cheeses and assorted cured meat. Every day we serve traditional products like cheeses as the Robiola di Roccaverano and the Testun Piemontese, or the Toma dello Spazzacamino della Val Vigezzo, and cured meat such as prosciutto crudo from Parma or the Piedmont “salame cotto” that will make the morning table even more enjoyable and the special local made Prosciutto coto and salame, from the Maceleria Giacobbe from Sassello.
Strong attention has been paid to natural and organic products: jams are made with 100% fruit and lemon (also produced in Liguria) with no preservatives, organic juices with no added sugar or additives of any kind, 100% natural yogurt, and many other products attest the care taken to assure the well-being of our guests.
Also people with health issues like celiac disease or intollerances will be able to enjoy our breakfast, as they will find products suitable for their needs, as well as special products for babies.
Garden and Swimming Pool
The garden and swimming pool are the jewels in our crown, in a peaceful spot but still close to the centre of the village. Here you may enjoy “bathing in the air” that once upon a time did our grandparents so much good.
Clean air, the scent of aromatic herbs, a vibrantly fresh green lawn and a swimming pool to refresh you with hydromassage jets. And that book to read that had spent too much time on the shelf. Or, why not finish writing that novel or screenplay you always wanted to write.
Borgomaro is certainly not lacking in inspiration or, indeed, tranquillity.
And leave your watch at home, here time is measured by the sound of the church bells. And during the night… only the river sound and the singing frogs

We love healthy food
A selection characterised by the search for quality, speciality produce from our land.
Zero mile food
Every day, we rotate typical products from the villages in the Valle Impero in our buffet : biscotti, focaccia and pizza produced by “Zia Bruna”, an unbeatable artisan baker from Borgomaro, and our homemade cake, biscuits and cake, made every day from mamma Piera and our pastry chef Patrizio.
We have selected cheeses and cured meats by visiting businesses in the local area and in southern Piedmont, and periodically, we will present you with typical produce from other Italian regions: Robiola cheese from Roccaverano and Testun cheese from Piedmont, or Toma dello Spazzacamino cheese from Val Vigezzo and prosciutto crudo or cooked salami will make your table more inviting, ready and waiting for when you wake up. Not to forget the amazing local produced cured meats from Salumeria Giacobbe in Sassello: the best ham and salami you can get in the region.
Natural & organic
Great care has been taken in finding natural and organic products: preservative-free jams, made only with fruit and lemon (which are also grown in Liguria), organic juices, without sugar or additives, completely natural yoghurt and so many other products that bear witness to our care for your well-being.
For coeliacs and diabetics
It is only fair that those who suffer from disorders such as coeliac disease and intolerances should also be able to enjoy a good, healthy breakfast, and it is for this reason that some of the produce available in our breakfast selection is suited to their requirements.
