High up with views over the valley. Hidden amongst the woods, a perfect place to regenerate and to find inspirations

A village in a scenic setting about fifteen km from Imperia, in the upper valley of the Impero river; illuminated by the sun, amongst olive trees, some vineyards and downy oak woods, highly trained cyclists really appreciate it. Here, it is a delight to rediscover emotional spaces without an eye on the clock. Discover Arzeno d’Oneglia facing the south with the majestic palazzo De Thomatis and the Romanesque campanile that was originally a watchtower. Or Cartari, with the ruins of Clavesana castle, almost hidden by the growth of the woods overlooking Arroscia valley. If your thoughts fly high, San Bartolomeo, on the hill, 620 metres asl is your perfect destination amongst the innumerable hiking tracks around the valley.
