Where Rosemary grows



uilt in 1907 over a pre-existing structure, Villa Rosmarino is a boutique hotel in Camogli, on the Mount Portofino. Inspired by the French maison de charme, it is a typical ligurian small palace with green shutters and trompe l’oeil which reproduce on the wall frescos, decorations and floral motifs. To its first owner, a local sea captain who commissioned the building at the end of XIX century, Villa Rosmarino was his country home where to take rest in between long seafaring journeys, but also where the olives coming from the trees and land surrounding the villa were crushed. In the ground floor was an old oil mill to produce olive oil for the needs of the resident family but also for those living in the neighbouring villas. The grind stones of the oil mill have been kept after the restructuring and are part of the decoration of the garden of the villa. A wonderful property transformed into a luxury bed & breakfast in Camogli on the Mount Portofino.

The Exteriors

Villa Rosmarino welcomes you through a large gate, a private car park and steps covered with fragrant climbing roses and plants.
Of the Villa’s four floors, three are available for guests while the fourth is where the owners have their private residence.
This structure is inspired by the traditional structures of the french Maison de Charme and it is quite common in the non traditional hotel hospitality.

The large garden of Villa Rosmarino surrounds the house in a typical ligurian fashion. A large magnolia tree and some chamelias spread their fragrance on the Mount side, while climbing roses, gardenias, pomegranate trees and geraniums will lead your walk toward the swimming pool area.

It is here that in the summer we serve breakfast to our guests.

Lemon, tangerine and grapefruit trees bloom right outside the large opening doors of the living room while the lavender and rosemary bordered lawn that surrounds the swimming pool hosts the old mill grindstone. Guests can admire these colors while comfortably sunbathing on the lounge chairs and beds around the large swimming pool.


The Interiors

Every detail and object inside Villa Rosmarino has a reason to be where it is, to be chosen and combined with the other. But do not expect the interior to be of the same décor as the outside.
The villa’s interiors are defined by modern furnishing and Italian design, not only as far as the pieces of furniture are concerned but also for the presence of works of art by contemporary international artists.
A design hotel in Camogli that will relax and sooth even the most demanding traveler.

Large sofas, a communal long table, a modern fireplace define the living room, while the library with a long terrace overlooking the pool and Golfo Paradiso, invites to reading time thanks to sofas and chairs of mixed modern and decò period, surrounded by walls of art, literature, communication and design books.
