La Casa dell'Ammiraglio
Small history of the Casa dell'Ammiraglio
You can find the building already named in maps of the 15.th century. It was the dowry of Cavaliere Fabio Marengos in the occasion of his daughter Olivas' wedding with the future admiral Gerolamo Bollo.
Already in this period the second floor of the palace was used for the accommodation of friends in the summertime. This means that our B&B carries on this ancient tradition of hospitality.
Our guest rooms
The B&B Casa dell'Ammiraglio has two large connecting bedrooms, one of them with marriage bed, the other with separable double bed.
The living room is separated from the bedrooms by a floor and can be reached from the entrance hall, which is decorated with antique furniture and paintings of artists from the 17. Century.
It is possible to accommodate 2 more guests in this living room by setting the canape to a comfortable bed.
In our guest bathroom you will find a multi-function shower and all the other necessary sanitary facilities.
Breakfast can be arranged in the traditional, Genoese kitchen, or otherwise in the dining room.
The ceilings of all the rooms are decorated with beautiful frescos, the most particular one is the ceiling of the dining room.
The monumental antique staircase leads to the entrance of the apartment.
The master bedroom is equipped with an air condition, which can be used for the second bedroom too.
The Casa dell'Ammiraglio is very near the seastrand (some 30 meters) and our guests are entitled to access to the best strand site with only a little fee.
