Unmissable events

In summer, the Taro Valley offers a wide range of interesting events starting from village festivals, to food fairs, to sports and cultural events.

In fall the real protagonists are local food products like the well-known Porcino mushroom, chestnuts and over the last few years even chocolate has become an attraction for local festivals.

In winter and particularly during the Christmas time, local villages are often crowded because of their picturesque Christmas street markets. A downright attraction is also Carnival with its parades and events in local clubs.

Agriturismo Il Goreto

Loc. Il goreto

Il Goreto is a small rural complex whose block of houses, some of them still intact, surround a small paved yard with a fountain which was originally for the stables.

This area is on the side of the Corona hill, a thick chestnut wood renowned for the mushroom picking.

The main house is near a hill where ancient fruit trees and wonderful linden trees grow.

The fact that it is quite difficult to reach this small area contributes to make it very quiet. Those people who love to be in contact with nature in all its freedom can make brief excursions to the near alta via dei monti liguri promoted by the municipality of Varese Ligure. Here it is possible to enjoy a wonderful landscape: grasslands, beech woods and ancient farms which cultivate biological products.

Back to the agritourism, guests can taste a high quality typical cuisine based on home made products like honey, jams, conserves, spirits and of course everything that grows in our gardens like vegetables, mushrooms and aromatic herbs.

The house was built in 1909 as the door inscription indicates and it is surrounded by a yard closed by an art nouveau balustrade which faces the fruit trees. The interiors are large with two homely dining rooms which are warmed by the wood stove. The furnishing of the rooms, which are all on the first floor, is conceived in order to make them cosy and comfortable.
