In today’s modern hospitality landscape, there are hotels, and there are airbnbs. And then there are those special places that fall in between categories, where authenticity is a beckon of hope and intention is executed with accuracy.
At Villa Rosmarino, nestled along a gorgeous winding street in Camogli in Italy’s seaside Ligurian region, referred to as the Italian Riveira, don’t expect air conditioning, TVs and formalities of a your standard bolthole. But do expect an incredible art collection fashioning the walls of every crevasses in the villa; Italian designer everything, from the ashtrays to the sun-chairs and bed frames, furniture and light fixtures; charming breakfast and late afternoon aperitivo, and an outdoor pool temperature-d perfectly for a cool dip after a hot day at the beach.
All in all, this place offers an intangible calm and understated sophistication that only owners Fulvio and Mario could dream into existence — a perfect respite from the bustle of contemporary life.
