Agriturismo Casa del Bosco is located only 16 km far away from the sea, on a panoramic position overlooking the village of Borzonasca and the surrounding valley: to get there you have to walk along a small uphill path that winds through a lush forest of beech, fir and chestnut trees and next to a stream with its little waterfalls.
The villa is our family house: we renovated it in 2008 in accordance with its nineteenth-century origins by restoring the old wooden floors, the exposed beams, the stone walls and by taking care of the furniture in order to recreate the yesteryear’s typical atmosphere and warmth.
All the rooms have got private bathroom and wardrobe, in some cases even a sitting area or a fireplace.
In the summertime, breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the valley, the gardens, the fruit trees and the flowers that surround the entire house while, during the coldest months of the year, we serve meals in the dining room - set in an ancient wine cellar, partly dug into the rock, with stone arches, wooden floors and slate floor. Right next to it there is the kitchen where we prepare the traditional Ligurian dishes by using the finest ingredients and our home-grown products.
On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at la Casa del Bosco you can also have a one course meal,deciding freely throughout your stay. During those days we offer a traditional Ligurian cuisine offered in a relaxed atmosphere at a cost of € 18/25 (ask for the menu at your visit) per person. We will be happy to serve you a selection of wines and soft drinks from our small cellar or to satisfy any peculiar request. During those days in which the kitchen will be closed, we will be happy to recommend you other quality restaurants and trattorias close to us.
Our farm house is mainly based on the cultivation of olive trees, vegetables, herbs and medicinal plants, and on the orchard (cultivated with plum, peach, cherry, apple, pear, apricot, sour orange, lemon, fig). We use most of our fruit for the production of sorbets, jams and homemade cakes that can be enjoyed during the morning breakfast or can be bought and taken home with you.
At the core of Agriturismo Casa del Bosco there is passion for the Earth, its fruits and its inhabitants. The farm is immersed into the Nature, and is careful to respect it and to take care of it with love, dedication and through a careful use of resources and materials
