”Le Palme” (The Palms) is an extraordinarily charming B&B. It is the perfect place for whoever is looking for a refuge from the stress of daily life and is ready to immerse themselves in an oasis of peace, between olive groves, palm trees and the sea. The ancient farm house is situated on the hill nearest to Recco, at a distance of just 4 minutes from the town. The rooms have been artfully and tastefully renovated, and are Independent from the main house; thus guaranteeing guests both space and privacy. A large furnished terrace, surrounded by palm trees, lavender, sage and rosemary, is the ideal place to take breakfast and to enjoy the stunning panorama of the golf of Genoa; be it on the backdrop of mountains or on the Mediterranean Sea, with it’s varied shades of blue, in every season, rest your gaze and clear your mind. In front of you, nestling among the olive trees, you will find a beautiful saltwater swimming pool; a charming area in which to relax.
