Retreat location

There are many special reasons for a trip to the upper Val di Vara, the green heart of the La Spezia territory, which has obtained the hallmark of the valley of organic production: the first in Italy to understand the value of nature and naturalness.

It offers you a chance to relax and merge into the green spirit of the valley for the eco-sustainable management of the territory.

It is inevitable for anyone searching for natural flavors to stop at Varese Ligure and to visit the Borgo Rotondo, conceived in the middle ages as a defense system.

For its typology, the borgo recalls the structure of other medieval dwelling nuclei in the area, gathered around a square surrounded by porticos, under which the stores were.

For gourmets, the area is paradise. the meat and the milk are certified with an organic hallmark. there are many dishes, done with the few available ingredients from pansori with walnut sauce to tagliatelle with mushroom tomato sauce and zimino chickpea.

Things to do (optional)

It opens from Monday to Saturday (8:30 - 13:00 and 15:30 - 19:00) and Sunday from 15:30. From there, you can find and try most of the organic products of the valley, like cheese, wines, pasta, jellies, and yogurt.

Hiking fans can also find some suggestive tracks to follow all around. Upon the previous request, Yoga and relax in Agriturismo can organize enjoyable hikes with a local guide.
