Our "farming holiday" is located on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio and is easily reached by bus or car. The area is calm and peaceful and offers a marvellous view. Only 4 km from the motorway Genova-Livorno A12 (exit at Chiavari) and 4.5 km from the railway station in Chiavari. Only 200 metres from the bus stop (Chiavari-Leivi line). It represents the ideal base to visit Genoa, the Riviera di Levante, the Cinque Terre and the hinterland of Liguria with its slates quarries, museums, valleys, natural parks and its beautiful mountains. Those who love trekking can enjoy the panoramic trial to the Madonna di Montallegro sanctuary, the Five Towers trail or simply walk among chestnut or hazel woods. The farm offers 18 beds and "agricamping".
For your fun and entertainment, there is a television room which has a small library all about the Ligurian region where you can find maps of foot paths if you feel like going for a walk. But if not, you can play table football and take part in a variety of different parlour games. If not, there is always the small outdoor swimming pool (3.5m wide by 1m deep) with deck chairs for sunbathing. Around the pool there are also chairs and tables where you can sit and relax while enjoying a drink. Go-cart circuit in Carasco (15 minutes from base). Riding track at 2 km. Games for children: Along the seafront in Chiavari there is a mini "fair ground" for children, offering an assortment of paid rides. There are also swings and slides and these are free of charge. Here small children can run about and have as much fun as they like. Also in the nearby town of Lavagna, these same attractions can be found which cater for the very small in mind.
