Località Casali di Stibiveri, 3, 16041 Borzonasca (Genoa)
In the stunning and uncontaminated landscape of the Sturla Valley, centroAnidra is the ideal place to get back in touch with one self and the surrounding nature; to enjoy activities like hikes along the river and down to the waterfall; to taste the genuine products of our organic farm.
Walking barefoot on the warm resin floors heated naturally by a wood-fuelled boiler, or going out first thing in the morning on the balcony of the independent apartment that overlooks the valley to admire it as it slowly awakens, are only some of the simple but deep emotions you can experience while staying at agritourism Il Mulino.
Set inside Centro Anidra Rural Park (labelled as Panda Farm from the WWF), in the wonderful natural frame of the Sturla Valley that protects it and gives it a feeling of infinite peace and quiet, this agritourism is an exceptional place to get back in touch with your inner-self by regaining an authentic and perhaps forgotten contact with nature.
Once an old water mill, agritourism Il Mulino has been recently restored into an original edifice that on the one hand respects the local building tradition with its external stone walls, and on the other hand the modern principles of bio-architecture and Feng Shui with the use of natural materials and the interior design of the accommodations.
Each of the four accommodations is in fact named after a primary natural element - wood, fire, metal and earth – to which it is connected, for example, the earth element is characterised by an undulating wall that expresses the natural flow of energy and emphasizes the rooms’ hospitality with its ceilings made with chestnut wood, the walls with natural lime plaster, the ecological panels with wooden fibres that isolate the walls and protect your repose. Not to mention the attention paid to details like the electrical system equipped with circuit breakers to avoid the formation of magnetic fields or the orientation of the building itself which harmonically fits into the surrounding environment.
Here as the old meets the modern the East meets the West and you have the opportunity of following yoga and martial arts courses offered by the Anidra School, of dedicating your day to finding your wellbeing and your own inner balance thanks to the different wellness services offered like the Finnish sauna, the holistic, craniosacral and shiatsu massage treatments or simply a walk in the open air, along the river, maybe down to the waterfall, losing yourself in the magic atmosphere of its pond, a timeless place of astonishing beauty that you can reach by simply going for a short walk in the woods.
Last but not least, our menus are prepared with organic home-grown products like fresh vegetables, honey, extra virgin olive oil, jams and above all our salami, the house special, which is recognised at national level and, just like our coppa and pancetta, is produced without chemical additives from pigs bred in the wild of our woods … to really leave an unforgettable mark in the palate and the memories of those who come and visit.

Placed within the holistic wellbeing Centro Anidra, a rural and uncontamined park in the Sturla Valley born to recover the beatiful but for too many years neglected environment, in the agritourism Il Mulino you have the chance to dedicate yourself to several activities in the open air and not only to the one organized by the centre, always respecting the peace and the rest that characterise the atmophere of the place.
First of all you can enjoy the walks in the open air, along the river, on a magic pathway, until reaching the waterfall: the most striking place, to forget yourself and just listening to the roaring waterfall without doing anything else. And then the walks to the Conchiglia and the Pianoro, two uncontaminated meadows that appear suddenly among the thick vegetation in the middle of the wood.
Who likes more to be “cuddled”, there are several wellness services inside the agritourism, like shiatsu and craniosacral treatments, holistic massages, the Finnish sauna and classes of Tai Chi, Yoga and Japanese Sword offered by the instructors of the School Anidra, in order to dedicate some moments of your day learning the oldest disciplines for the holistic wellbeing of the person.
And then in the surrounding area, with the sea and the beaches of our Tigullio, the most beautiful cities are: Sestri Levante with its old and unforgettable town centre, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Portofino, Camogli and obviously the Cinque Terre, that are worldwide famous for their architecture hanging on the hillsides directly over the sea like small houses in a crib. Who likes to stay in the countryside near to the agritourism can visit the Sturla Valley, with its landscapes and green colours and two interesting historical attractions: the abbey of Borzone and the face of Christ, a huge and old stone carving, which is still a mystery for the historians.

The most beautiful cities on the coast are Sestri Levante with its old and unforgettable town centre, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Portofino, Camogli and obviously the Cinque Terre, famous worldwide for its characteristic architecture made of small houses that literally hang from the hillsides directly over the sea as if they were a nativity scene. Likewise the mountain attractions are exceptional with stunning excursions to various lakes and summits with unique fauna and flora and spectacular panoramic views that reach out all the way to the Island of Corsica. In the winter, the quaint historical town of Santo Stefano d’Aveto also offers the possibility to fully enjoy the snow with its ski resort.

Set menu + └ la carte
Pleasant place, welcome and very positive assistance. Essential but appreciative accommodations. Especially vegetarian and very good cuisine. Services (baths / showers): limited. I would suggest the local service separation (and a doubling) from that showers. Nice stay!
