Family-run agriturismo to stay immersed in the green surroundings of pristine nature, where guests can rediscover the smells, flavours and rhythms of life in the country. The facility is 650 m a.s.l., right in the heart of Val di Vara, very close to the high trail of the Ligurian mountains.
The main building houses a large dining room with adjoining sunny terrace where guests can enjoy the fine view over the whole valley and that is also used for “al fresco” dining. Guests can choose from two independent rooms, each comprising bathroom with shower, sleeping a total of six.
The organic farm supplies the products used to make the local traditional dishes – bread, fresh pasta, vegetable pies, meat as well as seasonal products like mushrooms and chestnuts. All strictly homemade, using techniques that have been passed down through the generations.
Activities and surrounding
Val di Vara is perfect for relaxing walks, such as the hikes along the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a very old trail that runs right along the Ligurian mountains from east to west. Kilometres of trails leading from the coastline to the hinterland to discover delightful landscapes with wonderful views. And there are also plenty of points of historical, architectural and cultural interest as well; one of these is the round hamlet of Varese Ligure, which has been named one of the most beautiful hamlets in Italy and in 2006, Touring Club Italiano conferred it with a Bandiera arancione in recognition of its excellence. A 40-minute drive also takes guests to the Cinque Terre as well as to Levanto and Portovenere. In addition to the whole Gulf of Tigullio, Sestri Levante, Santa Margherita and Portofino.
Guests can either observe or participate in the various farming activities, including wheat threshing, chestnut gathering, animal breeding and vegetable growing. There are plenty of green zones on the agriturismo where guests can just relax and read a good book.
