Reliable historical news attest that this rural home was an ancient customs house. Although it was not located on the border of the state, its position was an in-between junction near the Passo della Colla which people and goods passed through to elude the two main centres of the Landi State: Compiano and Bardi. Its function as customs ended in 1684 when the Landi State was annexed by the Farnese family.
In a quiet, untouched place surrounded by an undoubtedly evocative green landscape at an altitude of 850 metres, Alvaro and Barbara have given new life to this entirely stone-made rural home. Here guests can have relax, feel free, find tranquillity and enjoy a swimming pool with solarium in a unique position facing a wonderful valley. Moreover, the garden is a place for “meditation” and “inspiration”.
Thanks to its strategic geographic position, guests can easily and shortly reach the Castle of Compiano, the Fortress of Bardi, the Cinque Terre, Chiavari and Sestri Levante – respectively through the Passo del Bocco and the Passo di Cento Croci which offer noteworthy experience especially for motorcyclists.
It takes only few minutes by car or by foot to reach the Monte Pelpi (1550 m sea-level) which offer a breathtaking 360° sightseeing and it is full of a wide range of trees and flowers. All these aspects contribute making this place unique for unforgettable “naturalistic” emotions.
In summer, the Taro Valley offers a wide range of interesting events starting from village festivals, to food fairs, to sports and cultural events.
