Stayed for two nights in June when visiting the area for a wedding. Very friendly welcome, beautiful hotel and surroundings, stunning pool and outstanding views of the area. The room we stayed in had kitchen facilities, and the breakfast offered was very substantial. Thoroughly recommend.

Having visited here most summers with family we are happy to report that this is a top establishment run by dedicated owners and staff. Highly recommended for experienced travellers looking for that quiet and peaceful getaway. This year we also got good advice from the nice hostess and owner to try a short trek in the Dolcedo area. Nice to...

The B&B is about 15 minutes driving down a windy road from the city of Imperia where all the action (beach, restaurants, grocery shopping) is. Getting our tiny rental car up the hilly entrance turned out to be quite an adventure. Be sure to turn off the airconditioning when you need a couple of extra horsepower! Upon arrival Pamela took...

We stayed at Relais San Damian for 3 nights in August and would thoroughly recommend this charming B&B to anyone who wants to get away from the noise and stress of the world; to savour some stunning Ligurian mountain views and just relax in peaceful surroundings. Our split-level room was spacious and cool. The infinity pool provides a welcome, cooling...

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.

We stayed for five nights on a short holiday in Italy and had an excellent stay. We arrived without a car via Nice. For those who'd like to know, one bus to Nice Gare de Ville, one train to Ventimiglia, one train to Imperia Porto Maurizo and then a taxi to the hotel which is on the SP39 road to...

Dear Peter and Alex, we are very pleased that you had great days here in San Damian and that you found the time to write about us! Liguria is a wonderful region, the sea and the hills offer beautiful sceneries and walks, though often steep! Our House was originally established as a farmhouse; then, at the beginning of the 90's...

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...

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...

We fully enjoyed our stay at San Damian.

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
