The
Experience

Live like a local here – learn to make pasta with friendly Gaia and Stefano and take a tour of the farm. There’s a rotating veg patch, a small forest to explore and plenty of animals to find: the mostly organic homegrown produce is used in the breakfasts and dinners. Wake up to eggs from the chickens, homemade marmalades, fresh tomatoes and local cheeses and hams – served on benches outside in the shade with views over the valley.

You’re close to castles, treks along the river, wild swimming spots, national parks and beaches. Have your own private terrace on an exclusive beach in Fiascherino (40 minutes) or take a ferry to the national park on Isola Palmaria and hike to find your own quiet spot.

Head back for dinner – it’s a communal experience and you’ll sample delicious Italian food, perhaps bruschetta and ravioli, washed down with homemade limoncello or grappa. Relax in hammocks as the sun goes down and return to rustic rooms in the old hay sheds looking out over the hills.

Reviews

The welcome here was warm and friendly, and the views amazing. This is a great example of 'agriturismo' - lots of animals wandering around, tasty produce used in your breakfast and a big area of forest and veggie patches to explore. Head here for peace and tranquility away from the crowds -but make new friends around the communal breakfast and dinner tables.

Location

The neighbourhood

The farm is on one side of a valley, up a hill and away from the road. Walk 10 minutes down the hill for pizza at Il Torcio and into the small village for a few shops. Park up by the river (10 minutes’ drive) and walk through the valley – cooling off in the water. You can take a ferry from Porto Venere (50 minutes) over to Montemarcello Magra for more beaches and plenty of walking and birdwatching. Cinque Terre is a car ride away - head to La Spezia (20 minutes) or Levanto (40 minutes) and take a train or cycle between the coastal villages.

Local points of interest from Gaia Di Rosa

  • Cinque Terre is the main attraction of the area and we'll suggest you the best way to enjoy this area in each season
  • Don't forget another treasure in Gulf of La Spezia: Portovenere with its characteristic colored houses, the castle and San Pietro Church and Palmaria isle just in front of Portovenere
  • Just for our guests, a magic terrace in a private beach in Fiascherino, between Lerici and Tellaro
  • Only 5' by car to a small but very fresh river where you can relax, spend an alternative day for swimming or canyoning
  • Walking (40') or by car (5') you can visit Madrignano Castle up to the hill and enjoy the fantastic panorama on the valley. A path through the woods connects Madrignano to the castle in Calice al Cornoviglio

Introducing

Gaia Di Rosa

Gaia and Stefano run the farm and B&B – you’ll see their 2 dogs roaming around, Tim and Pipina, plus a host of other animals. They renovated the farm in 2000 and chose the name after the two dormice that were found sleeping under the floorboards. They’re both passionate about sustainability and sharing the agriturismo with their guests.
