Loc. Usurana,1, Calice al Cornoviglio 19020 Calice al Cornoviglio (La Spezia)
The farm is situated on the hills of the 'Val Di Vara' valley, very close to the Cinque Terre, it offers hospitality in rooms, local wines, dishes and other products made only with organic ingredients produced in the farmhouse.
The name 'I Due Ghiri' in Italian means 'TWO Dormouse': these two were found still asleep by the workers during the refurbishment of the farmhouse in the winter of 2001. The farm, which occupies almost 16 hectares, is situated on the hills of the 'Val Di Vara' valley, very close to the Cinque Terre in Liguria, one of the most beautiful regions of Italy famous everywhere for its fantastic local products such as olive oil, pesto dressing, home made pasta and bread and many others.
The agritourism has got a restaurant too, but the kitchen is not a real restaurant. Gaia e Stefano, “i due ghiri” (the two dormice) prefer to define their restaurant as “a kitchen for friends”. What you get on your plate comes immediately from our garden: vegetables and organic fruit, olive oil, meat from the farm, bread, homemade pastas, desserts and marmalades. All this forms the basis to prepare every day some simple, but tasty meals. Every night we share this meal, while sitting on a long table with our friends all together. That’s the greatest pleasure!
There are large double and quadruple rooms, with private bathrooms. In addition, there are apartments available.
There are plenty of interesting and beautiful places that can be visited the atmospheric >Cinque Terre, the enchanting Poets' Gulf , the fluvial park of Magra-Montemarcello born that offers endless opportunities to spend whole days in pleasant and alternative ways, Val di Vara, Lunigiana, recommending to visit Pontremoli, the town of books and the Bancarella prize, the village of Filattiera and the parish church of Sorano, the small towns of Mulazzo and Montereggio, Bagnone and its surroundings, Fivizzano, also called the Florence of Lunigiana, and the village of Verrucola, the castle of Fosdinovo, and so many other sights.

We spend 5 nights in I Due Ghiri and had a really nice time exploring the region around Usurana and La Spezia. Gaia and Stefano helped us from our very first contact on to feel comfortable. I even learned a few italian recipes. Great place to enjoy life, whether with a whole family or as a couple. In the evening, we all had dinner together and enjoyed the great cooking skills of Gaia and the nice meat specialties of Stefano. Would highly recommend.
Gaia and Stefano ensure a good atmosphere at the table. With a good meal you can meet new people and share experiences of the day.

We had a lovely stay of 2 nights here. Gaia and Stefano were wonderful hosts. The farm had plenty of land for our children to wander around and explore, and they enjoyed the dogs particularly. The food was wonderful, and we loved the experience of sharing the meal with others staying at the agriturismo--an opportunity to share stories and make new friends. I would highly recommend staying here in all respects!
