    "Beautiful, peaceful, authentic"

    07/31/2017

    We came with our little boy (3) to stay here for 10 days in July. It was a wonderful experience.

    Daria and Andrea were very welcoming. The apartments themselves are like new and thoughtfully set up. The cleanliness was impeccable and they really talk sustainablility seriously. We even had a garden, which our child really liked to play in.

    On top of that, the location was really peaceful. At night it is just you and the stars (and some wild boar). It is a little far from the coast for those seeking beach vacations, but this wasn't our main goal so we were happy to drive down a couple of days. (For cycling the area is really good.) And even in July it was nice and cool at night. No heat wave in the hills!

    Finally, the food. Daria is an excellent cook and the 2 meals we had were the best we had there (and we didn't have any bad meals). Do not miss out! Andrea spoke at length about the crops they are bringing back but unfortunately we don't understand Italian. Didn't stop us from enjoying it all the same.

    All in all a memorable and truly relaxing vacation.

    06/15/2017

    We thank Daria and Andrea for the warmth and passion with which they tell their activities. We only spent 2 days, but they would serve others to enjoy over the sea, even the surrounding hillside areas of the farm. And do not miss the dinners ... all great with local produce and when possible of their cultivation cooked with professionalism. Perfect accommodation. Experience definitely to repeat. Thanks again. See you soon!

    First of all thank Daria and Andrew for their hospitality and the excellent dinner made with natural and genuine products. The apartment is very cozy, new and complete with every comfort with careful research even in the smallest details, as well as clean and spacious. A location surrounded by nature in a position to meet all needs, large and small. Had a great time, we would definitely return again and would highly recommend it to everyone.

    "Peaceful and Welcoming. "

    10/19/2016

    We stayed here for three nights mid-September. The rooms where clean and modern, but cozy as well. The weather was a bit wet, and we got to watch thunder storms roll in from our perch up on the hill. It would have been nice to have breakfast, but there is a full kitchen in the unit, so we just grabbed basics in the nearby Town of Varese Ligure. I would highly reccomend visiting this town. There is a carver there who makes the croxetti stamps for making a typical pasta of the region.
    We also took a cooking class while we where there, and it was splendid. We started in the garden gathering the fruits and veggies fresh off the vine. We went on to learn about our ingredients, and the various reasons why local products from small farms are best. Our group, including Italians, Germans, Americans, and French, helped and listened and I think we all walked away with new recipes, skills and beginning to understand some typical foods and recipes of that season in Liguria. The beans that they grow here are amazing, and delicious. A unexpected treat, and I am not usually a lover of beans, so that is saying a lot. The meal that followed the class was phenomenal. Our translator was also a brewer in town, we tried to make it to her brewery but missed out due to other plans, but tried two "Taverna Del Vara" beers at dinner at "Posta" in Torza later that evening. Highly recommended, both the beer and the local restaurant. There is also a Pizzaria and bar in town that is open late, and was delicious. Both of these restaurants are an easy walk from Collina Torre.
    Some tips: Your host speaks Italian, German, some French, and only a bit of English.
    The actual rooms are up the hill and to the left of the spot that Google Maps will direct you.
    The pellet stoves are a bit tricky to start, so ask for help when you arrive, before you get cold!
    It seems to rain a lot in this area. Come prepared!

    We loved our stay. Thank you very much Collina Torre!

    "Everything was perfect. "

    09/28/2016

    Everything was OK.
    Except:
    -they do not have the breakfast and the nearest supermarket is located far from the agroturismo;
    -the agroturismo is located just 20-25km far from La Specia but it is mountane road and it is hard.

    "Beautiful valley, perfect location! "

    09/17/2016

    It was an amazing experience to stay at Collina Torre in july 2016. My family and I had a wonderful holiday in these amazing surroundings. The area around the property is nice and quiet and it is the perfect place to relax. From the balconys the view is beautiful, especially with the fire flyes in the night. The apartment itself was nice and very clean and big enough to house four adults. The daughter of the house prepared food for us one evening with produce from the farm - amazing! Also Daria and Andrea had arranged a day to show us the beautiful valley and all the lovely food produced here, thank you so much for that!

    If you are going to Liguria I can only recomend you to stay here. However remember to rent a car with a proper motor, you will drive in some steep hills.

    "Relaxing time in beautiful surroundings"

    09/09/2016

    Extremely clean and tidy. We appreciated the welcome from the hosts.Bought wonderful produce, freshly picked as we watched. The location is quiet ; getting around the area involveded driving mountain roads through beautiful scenery.
    The only frustration was having no internet for two of the three evenings, although the owner assured us that this was unusual.

    07/10/2016

    Daria and Andrea were fabulous hosts. They took us on an impromptu day tour around local producers, with wine an beer tasting and finished with a delicious home-cooked dinner with their own organic produce. The apartment was spectacular - newly furnished with a super bathroom and outdoor balcony. Great views from the apartment and a fantastic hilly valley. A 1/2 hour drive to Sestri-Levante where we caught the train to Cinque-terre for a good day trip.

    A very nice practical apartment in a quiet location. Class is also the pellet stove, the morning and the evening gave us comfortable temperatures. The owner are very friendly and caring. Absolute highlights were the "slow food" menu in a family environment, with local products and specialties. In addition, we are particularly the hiking opportunities have fallen in the hinterland.
