The Environment

Liguria connects the contrasts of sea and mountains to a beautiful landscape. You can enjoy trips, go hiking or mountain biking in the mountains, or kitesurfing on the beach. Lovers of Italian cuisine are fully catered for in Liguria. Genovese pesto, freshly pressed olive oil, pickled olives, wine, many types of mushrooms, refined antipasti, primi and secondi Piatti, fish and game dishes, Liguria has it all. In Pigna, Castel Vittorio and Dolce Acqua you can enjoy various typical regional restaurants and of course Italian trattorias and bars.

Due to the altitude (about 800 meters above sea level) it is not too hot in summer, there is always a cool breeze and due to the influence of the sea, it is very pleasant even in autumn.

Walking, cycling and swimming
Casa dei Fiori is located in the lovely green ‘Alpi Liguri’ – sandwiched between high alpine summits and the bustle of the Mediterranean ‘riviera dei fiori’. In this forgotten country it is wonderful to walk through an attractive nature. Visit the picturesque, medieval fortified towns with narrow alleys and houses built on and under each other.

Famous gardens and palaces
Near Ventimiglia, the beautiful and exclusive gardens of Hanbury are a ‘must see’ for garden and plant lovers. There are more beautiful Italian gardens in Liguria to admire: in San Remo, Ventimiglia, Menton, Monaco and Nice

Near Ventimiglia and Menton is also the fashionable Monaco – a short hour from Casa dei Fiori.
