• Liguria Our land

    WHERE THE SEA EMBRACES THE MOUNTAIN

    Liguria is a symphony of contrasts. The mountains reach down to the sea and form a mixture of green plateaus and bizarre cliffs. The colors are lively and bright: the emerald green of the Mediterranean scrub, the intense blue of the Ligurian Sea, the dusty pink of the nesting houses.

    Pietra Ligure and the Riviera are a chest full of hidden treasures: secluded coves, exposed seabeds, caves carved by the waves. In the hinterland there are old sandstone villages where time seems to have stood still. The typical Liguria, which smells of basil and trenette with pesto and wants to be discovered, tasted and experienced in all its facets.

Liguria

Liguria
A unique region to fall in love with!

Liguria is a region of Italy where the scent of the sea mixes with that of the Mediterranean Macchia. If you walk along the cliffs, your gaze will range from the blue of the water to the golden ocher of the rocks, in a truly unique play of light and color! The hills slope gently down to small bays with light, fine sand, ideal for long walks. And what about Cinque Terre? Since these villages are located above the sea on the Ligurian rocks, they look like they have been painted. A work of art of generations that have shaped the area and created a truly poetic landscape.

Our hinterland in particular holds treasures such as the typical stone villages overlooked by ancient castles. Places where time has stood still. And then there are the authentic flavors of this country: the typical pesto from Genoa and our focaccia from Recco. Both smell of tradition and make every meal an unforgettable experience! In short, it is a region to be discovered, experienced and enjoyed with all your senses. What do you think, isn't it a magical place?
