“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
It has taken dreaming advertising exec Mario Pietraccetta five years to transform a crumbling Genoese palazzo into this serene, chic villa with immaculate gardens, which opened last summer. It's perched on a hilltop, overlooking the bobbing yachts in Camogli Bay. Guests spend their days hiking the Cinque Terre, down the coast, or exploring Genoa's crooked streets. But it's equally tempting to bask by the gorgeous pool, ordering perfect espressos and planning which of the area's excellent restaurants to visit.
