In the middle of the Arroscia valley, in a place suspended between the olive groves and vineyards of the most suitable area for Pigato (a characteristic Ligurian vine), in a clear atmosphere, you can see the sparkle of the sea looking towards Albenga, while in the opposite direction you can see the mountains of the Ligurian Alps, with snow for most of the year.

In this particular place in the summer evenings are organized musical evenings and events, such as “Calici di stelle”. A network of paths connects the valley floor with the high villages, towards the ridge. On the opposite side the wood cover is dense, while the position and the microclimatic characteristics of the left bank allow viticulture and mountain olive growing, with postponed harvesting compared to the Imperia valleys.
