Home
By turning the corner of the building, you are at the seaside. The flat is on the 2nd floor and there’s a little lift.

The city centre (where there are cinemas and restaurants and where feasts and cultural events take place) is 15-20 minutes on foot.

The bright rooms, welcoming quiet, and the kindness of the people who will receive you, are a guarantee of a plesant stay.

Distances
Railway station: 10 minutes on foot
Savona superhighway: few minutes
Savona Port: 800 meter
Vado Ligure Port: 5 – 6 km (10 minutes by car)
Connected every 20 minutes with the city centre by public buses.

Appointments
There are numerous events musical, theathrical, exhibitions and gastronomical fetes which during the whole year, but especially in summertime happen in our region.

The “Quarters’ Regatta” in Noli, the fireworks championship in Sanremo, the theathrical representation in the magnificent “piazzetta” (little square) in Borgio Verezzi are only but few of these events, and again is in the piazzetta where was was the ship haulage that, for some years, the savonesi meet up to celebrate together the New Year. A party of 15000 people.

Of great interest, both artistical and ecclesiastical, is the Good Friday Procession that takes place every other year where valuable wooden sculptures representing scenes from the Passio of Christ are taken in procession around the town.

Twenty one are the letters of the italian alphabet and so twenty one are the tolls of the bell that every evening at six o’clock stops the center of the city for a few minutes honoring and remembering the fallen of all wars and that won’t fail to move all by standers.

Attractions
The sea, with so many beaches awarded the Blue Flag, gained also thanks to the waste depurator shared amongst various municipalities.

This natural legacy becomes a source of enjoyment and knowledge at the Caravelle the Aquatic Park in Ceriale and with the departures to the Cetean Santuary of Liguria and Provence from the “Torretta” in Savona of organised visits for all those interested in whalewatching and dolphin spotting.

Next to those villages on the coast made famous by travellers in the 1800 such as Alassio, San Remo, Zuccarello e Castelvecchio there are others maybe less famous, but certainly not less interesting:
Albissola, famous for the Artists Promenade and the ceramics;
Varazze, one of the ten most famous italian beaches;
Noli, ancient Marine Republic that preserves numerous medieval ruins;
Finale Ligure, made up by the two borghi of Finale Pia and Finale Marina;
Finalborgo and 2 km away Varigotti with terraced houses typical of the Mediterranea.

For those who love nature it will be a extraordinary discover the most woded inland in Italy that start just over the coast and can be enjoyed by mountain bike or walking the paths of the “Alta Via dei Monti Liguri”.

The rock walls divin into the sea in Finale will prove irrestibly for those “Spidermen” practicing Free-Climbing.

The Caves in Toirano inhabited by the Cro-magnon men, reveal a past hetched in the rock and made even more distintive by the formation of stalactites and stalagmites.

Divers cannot refrain from diving in the waters around the islands situated in front of Bergeggi and Albenga, where they could find marine rests that will enrich the Naval Museum.

Cuisine
Those travellers for whom the knowledge of a place includes its taste, will not leave Savona without having tryied the Farinata and the Panizza a fette, washed down with a good glass of Buzzetto from Quiliano.

The amarerri and the Chinotti in Maraschino, preserved according to an ancient recipe will remind you of you holiday once back at home.

As we were traveling by bicycle, our gracious host granted our request for an early check in. The room was beautiful, spacious and homey. The facility was located a 10-15 minute walk from the old city which is gorgeous. We would recommend BnB Alba Mare highly. If we are in Savona again, we will definitely look to stay there again.

We had the pleasure of spending a week in May 2019 at the B&B Alba Mare, a stone's throw from the beach in Savona. After a friendly reception by Alba, we were accommodated in the Apartment A with a view to the sea. A supply of breakfast items was provided each day, and there were all the kitchen utensils we needed to prepare our own meals. This B&B is clearly a “labour of love” for Alba, and she knows the secret to being a successful host. Dear Alba, we will take the opportunity here to thank you for a memorable stay at Alba Mare. We felt really welcome and well treated and enjoyed the clean Italian surroundings. Kindest Evelyn & Niels-Erik Hansen.

“Einfach perfekt”! Ich lebe in der Nähe von Stuttgart und besuche regelmäßig meine Familie in Savona. Ich war bereits in diversen Unterkünften und habe bis jetzt immer negative Erfahrungen gemacht: Skorpionen und Tausendfüßler im Zimmer wurden mit "Wir sind ja auf dem Land!" begründet. Oder die Ausstattung der Zimmer bestand teilweise aus Stahlbetten mit abblätternder Farbe. Jedoch lernte ich vor zwei Wochen eine ganz andere Art von Unterkunft kennen. - Die Lage – Meine Schwester und ich kamen vom Bahnhof mit dem Bus der Linie 6/ direkt zum B&B Alba Mare. In Corso Vittorio Veneto sind verschiedene Lokale, in denen man gut und preisgünstig essen kann. Das Zentrum ist in 5 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen, der Strand in 30 Sekunden. - Das Zimmer - Wir wurden freundlich von Alba begrüßt. Sie zeigte uns unser Zimmer mit eigenem Bad, das hell, ruhig und stilvoll eingerichtet war, außerdem hatte es einen langen Balkon. Man merkte die Liebe zum Detail, z. B. sind die wunderschönen weißen Bettbezüge per Hand bestickt. Das Zimmer war sauber und gepflegt, sodass man sich als Gast wohl fühlt. Als wir ins Bett gingen, waren nur die Möwen und das Meer zu hören - und das mitten in der Stadt. Ich habe sehr gut geschlafen und wurde (spät) vom Duft des frisch gebrühten Kaffees geweckt. - Das Frühstück - Man frühstückt in einer typischen ligurischen Küche, die perfekt eingerichtet ist und welche man auch für 10€ pro Tag mieten kann. Alba ist wie eine italienische Mamma: sie kocht für alle Kaffee, redet mit jedem und besorgt die beste Focaccia (ein ligurischer salziger Fladen) und die besten Kekse der Stadt. Außerdem verwöhnt sie ihre Gäste jeden Tag mit verschiedenen hausgemachten Kuchen und besonderen Teesorten, die wir alle probiert haben (lecker!). Alles frisch, nichts verpackt - Fazit - Für mich ein Muss bei jedem Familien-Besuch, Danke Alba!

L'arredamento inoltre è molto carino e ogni dettaglio è studiato e fa si che si crei un ambiente molto accogliente. Molto pulito.

Bell'appartamento al 2° piano di un condominio (c'è l'ascensore ma è situato in un angolo un pò ostico e stretto). Ho dormito in una stanza ben pulita ed ordinata, con bagno condiviso, anch'esso lindo e spazioso Ho conosciuto Silvia e Davide: 2 persone disponibili e alla mano. La colazione è preparata in modo accurato e ci si può servire da soli (the, caffè, etc). fette biscottate e marmellate monouso, nutella, biscotti, cereali da mettere nello yogurt o latte. Dolcificanti di ogni tipo (zucchero bianco, di canna, stevia, miele). visto che eravamo in 2 ci hanno fatto trovare anche 2 fette di crostata. Le camere sono matrimoniali, ma volendo si possono anche dividere i letti. Per un weekend "mordi e fuggi" è stato l'ideale. Grazie.

Bella struttura, molto gradevole e accogliente. Consigliata la camera con balcone che dà verso il mare, con uno scorcio di vista del mare attraverso i condomini. La stessa vista si ha dalla cucina dove si fa colazione in autonomia, una soluzione completa e apprezzabile. Ci si fa da soli il caffè con le cialde, ci sono tre tipi di cereali, una tortina confezionata, biscotti, fette biscottate con marmellata confezionata, quindi una colazione adeguata. La camera che dà sul mare ha un arredamento fantasioso e gradevole, con ampio spazio e anche un mobiletto sopra il quale aprire comodamente le valigie. Comodo il letto, ampio il bagno, tutto regolare. Volendo ci sono due sedie per sedersi in balcone. Insomma, si sta come a casa! Non manca il WiFi e alcune guide e depliant turistici. Le persone che lo gestiscono sono deliziose e disponibili a spiegare quanto offre il territorio, oltre ad adattarsi per il check in. Comodo poter lasciare le valigie in stanza fino alle 12 dopo aver liberato la camera alle 10. L'unico appunto è che l'ascensore è stato ricavato a fatica nella tromba delle scale, è angusto e non subito al piano terra ma dopo alcuni gradini, però destreggiandosi con le portelle si riesce comunque a portare su al secondo piano dove si trova la struttura una valigia da 20-30 kg. Si vede comunque che nel possibile si è fatto tutto per far stare bene gli ospiti. Gradevole la posizione vicino al lungomare, bastano dieci minuti a piedi dalla stazione o per il Priamar (oltre al museo si può entrare liberamente dalla passerella in salita nelle terrazze panoramiche sulla città e i giardini interni), un poco di più per il centro e il Palacrociere, comunque percorsi gradevoli e sicuri, specie quello del lungomare. Volendo ci si può avvicinare coi bus 6 e 6/. Andando in stazione o prendendo il bus 6 o 6/ verso Vado nella fermata all'angolo opposto rispetto al vicino semaforo si può prendere la linea 40/ che consente di fare una facile escursione in luoghi bellissimi come Noli, Varigotti e Finale, con capolinea nel noto Finalborgo.

The House
The flat is quite near to the sea. It is on the 2nd floor of an ancient building that is provided with a little lift.
The city centre (where there are cinemas and restaurants and where feasts and cultural events take place) is 15-20 minutes on foot.
The railway station is 15 minutes on foots or, if you prefer, you can take a bus (every 20 minutes) to the house.
The boarding of the" Corsica Ferries" it is attainable in 10' of auto (6 Kms)
The bright rooms, welcoming and quiet, together with the easy parking and the kindness of the people who will receive you, are a guarantee of a plesant stay.


Historical information about the city that will recive you

The city of Savona, developed in the Byzantine period, was Genoa’s rival in the Middle Age in the field of commerce.
In 1327 she was granted, by Ludovico the Bavarian, the right to mint money and in the second half of the 1400 the Della Rovere family gave Christiany two Popes, Sisto IV and Giulio II, who favored a period of great renaissance in the arts, culture and economic life of the city.
Following the prosperity of the economy the city was enriched with the construction of numerous churches and nobiliary palaces with beautiful slate portals and massive turrets, all linked by a maze of narrow streets tipical of the Ligurian architecture of that time.
In this period, when he was still a child, Christopher Colombus and his family moved into the city.
In the first half of 1500 Savona was ruled by Genoa, that distroyed important quarters and built the imponent Fortress of the Priamar, a symbol of the power of the winner over the defeated where in 1830-31 Giuseppe Mazzini was held prisoner.
Savona had to wait until the XVII century to raise to fame again with the production of the “Ceramiche Blu”, the Blue Ceramics. This fame continued with the Liberty architecture, exploded in the last twenty years of 1800 and run out with the first world war.
The old part of the city, gathered around the port, is flanked by the more modern part with wide and straight streets and tree-lined squares inspired by the same town planning theory applied in Turin.
This city that between the end of ‘800 and even more in the ‘900 had became an important industrial centre today is a lively touristic crossroad that awaits his guest with bars, discos, restaurants …and soon it will take shape around that tehnological jewel, the Cruise Terminal, a new quarter designed by a great catalan architect, Ricardo Bofill.
Already now american and german tourists alight from the big cruise ships of Costa Crociere that has decide to build right here its base for the third millenium.

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
