Relaxation in the silence of nature
The stone houses of our ancestors
We decided to renovate the old houses, stables and barns of our ancestors while preserving their appearance and soul, so we transformed them into an agritourism business. All this was possible thanks to the hard work of my father Virgilio, known as the "Capomastro" ("master builder"), and my husband Angelo, whose great efforts and enthusiasm helped this dream of ours come true.
We want to meet new friends and share our history and traditions, rooted in this ancient village of the Ligurian hinterland.
Nasino: in the cradle of Liguria, immersed in nature
We are in Vignolo, a hamlet in Nasino, in the green and peaceful Val Pennavaire.
Here in the village, founded by the Romans, you can breathe the nature, history and traditions of Liguria.
The Pennavaire Valley is considered the cradle of the Ligurians, the oldest human settlements, found in the many caves in the valley which date back as far as 9,000 years ago. The finds are on display in Albenga's anthropological museum.
