A centuries-old tradition of distilling natural essences in a valley that gives life to perfumes as well as to authentic flavours

A village a few km from Bordighera looking over a valley of lemons and oranges, aromatic herbs and eucalyptus trees. A picturesque village of stone houses, gathered in a bunch around narrow alleyways, with the large, colourful church of San Lorenzo and its magnificent organ. Walking amongst the small squares is an experience that not only delights the nose but the other senses too: it’s a pleasure to hear the local dialect and admire the colours of mimosa in winter. Vallebona gives fragrances and hues that leave their mark but not only that, its cuisine also tempts the emotions with flavourful dishes such as rabbit to tuck into a after a healthy hike.
