This retreat will take place in a family farm located close to the small village of Falcinello, in the hills of Sarzana. These hills are 300 meters above sea level and border the regions of south Liguria and Tuscany. The area around the farm is one of the most beautiful places in Italy, and is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty. It is a perfect mixture of hills, marble mountains, hiking trails, rivers, medieval castles, churches, quaint villages, and one of the most beautiful beaches.
The farm itself is a large property where guests can stroll around, relax in the shade of olive trees, hike around the trails in the beautiful forest, or just sit on a sun lounger on the terrace and marvel at the view. It is the most suitable place to have a break from the busy and rushing world, reconnect with yourself, and be rejuvenated and lost in the gorgeousness of the earth.
The price of this retreat includes the dinner on the arrival day and four vegetarian breakfasts. Non-vegetarian meals are also available but the staff must be notified in advance.
The farm tries to be as self-sufficient as possible while creating nutritious and delectable meals for its guests. Ingredients such as vegetables, fruit, olive oil all come directly from the farm. Other products (e.g. eggs, bread) are bought from local farms, family owned small businesses. The fresh drinking water comes straight from a spring captured from a nearby mountain spring.
You will be accommodated at the Campo di Luna Agriturismo in double or triple rooms. This huge Italian family house was built a couple of years ago in a hillside using natural materials and beautifully-renewed old wooden furniture. You will be surrounded by a huge olive garden, forests, hills, and a view of the Ligurian sea. The house follows the line of simplicity, but it is very welcoming and cozy.
The kitchen is an important part of the Italian family’s daily life and that is why the kitchen and living room are open together, creating a huge space. It has a wall-to-wall glass door which opens to the terrace overlooking the sea. The view from here is just spectacular. Imagine sitting in the terrace and watching the amazing sunset while eating a delicious homemade meal. What a delightful scene.
The rooms are nice and cool during the hot summer days. They are not excessively furnished. The owners used natural materials and colors to make the rooms nice and cozy. The beds are new and comfortable so you can be assured that you will have a pleasant night's sleep during your stay. Every room has a bathroom with all the necessary facilities.
The farm intends to be as self-sufficient as possible. They have chosen to use the renewable energy resources that nature provides. On the roof, there are many solar panels to use the sun rays to generate electricity and heating. Everyone in the farm drinks the fresh water coming from a pure mountain spring. For the household water, they built in huge tanks under the ground to collect water from wood spring.
The farm also produces many kinds of vegetable and fruit and it also has an olive garden with over 400 olive trees. The owners make their own olive oil and use their own seasonal products for cooking. You will have the chance to taste these delicious products from the garden to the table. In the garden and on the terrace, you will find lots of comfortable chairs and sun loungers where you can rest and enjoy fresh air.
