Before describing the house, we want to tell you about Angiolina, and her generous heart and her philosophy of life, which we have made ours.
Her house for almost a century was the center of the village, with her small tavern, and wine cellar always opened and where everyone big and small always found a smile and a good glass of homemade wine and traditional “Leventese” biscuits.
On the porch in the shade and protected from the summer heat, or north winds that wildly blow during the clear winter days, people stopped to talk or moan, or just to say hello, she was always there ready to serve a bit gruffly at times but always with smiling eyes and a light heart.
Her house is again opened with nine rooms each one different and completely renovated and furnished with today’s modern luxuries, where the original antique stone walls and the chestnut ceilings with its big beams maintain the magical atmosphere of past times.
The antique tavern with high arched stone walls is where you will find the reception area and the big hall where all guests can meet at breakfast, or sip a fine glass of wine from the local wineries of Levanto and the Cinque Terre accompanied with flavorful local products of the valley and inlands of the “Val di Vara”, and the “Val di Magra – Lunigiana”. Walking up the street from the porch you will arrive at the panoramic terrace where the Jacuzzis are and the garden, here you can relax after a long day at the beach, or after trekking the paths of the Cinque Terre or Portifino.
On the vast estate you can find barbeque areas for our guests who would like to prepare a mixed grill, a small playground for children, nature trails, and a corner where you can enjoy reading a good book that you might have found in the book crossing area of our house.
For the sporty types there is a fitness trail among the olive groves to regenerate your body and open all your senses to the aromas and colors of the surrounding nature.
For our four-legged friends there is an area furnished with dog bowls, and a shaded area where they can run around freely. For those that are tired the building has an elevator so you can reach the terrace and the garden and the top floor without difficulty.
