where we are


Our farmhouse is located in a landscape of pine trees, chestnut trees and grass pastures and is situated 610 metres above sea level, in a south westerly direction.
We live in the high Val di Vara, surrounded by several villages dating as far back as the middle ages, the largest of which is called Varese Ligure, 14km away.
Sestri Levante is just 20 kms away, here you will find shops, beaches and access to the motorway, also you can take the ferry boat to Portofino, San Fruttuoso and Porto Venere, the beautiful area of cinque terre is within easy reach, whilst 33 kms away, you can find Zun-zeri ski station for the Winter months!
On average, the road that serves our mountain is used by 5 cars a day!...

In August its so quiet is seems like November! On Tuesday so calm it could be Sunday!
On clear days you can see the Moneglia sea, the Savona coast, the Maritime Alps and the Marguatais peak......

And at night the stars are so numerous and so close that you could feel dizzy while walking under them!!!
