More than a neighborhood, this is a corner of paradise. You are surrounded by trees and hills and a rockface on the opposite side of the river filled with fish that will swim with you.
All this is inside the Beigua Natural Park, www.parcobeigua.it. The river separates the provinces of Savona and Genoa. Hills and mountains separate your tent from the sea, which is very close, as the crow flies. Nearby passes the famous Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a path that runs along the Apennine ridge with incredible views of the sea. The Faiallo pass with incredible views over the sea is half an hour from here. From here you can walk suspended over the sea at a thousand meters below you, in an incomparable setting.
Worth noting is the nearby Cistercian Abbey of Tiglieto, the first built by the order in 1120 and recently restored.
In an hour’s drive you are at the sea of Varazze. Genoa, one of the largest historic centers in Europe, is an hour from here. In an hour and a half you are at the sea in the area of Camogli, the peninsula of Portofino. In two hours you can get to Cinque Terre. If you want to taste wines and typical Italian foods, the lower Piedmont is half an hour by car. The area of Ovada is here, with wine productions worthy of attention, including Dolcetto, Barbera and Gavi,among the wines to remember.
We think of this place as a regenerating place, in the truest sense of the word. The water of the stream like your natural pool.
