A rural village on the Impero river, historical crossroads of different cultures. Now a place that preserves the charm of farm life focusing on olive growing

RQuiet hamlets and art live amongst the olives, the oaks and the flowered meadows not far from Imperia. A pocket of land whose roots date back to the 7th century, the border between the Provincia Maritima Italorum of the Byzantine empire and the Lombard lands in the hinterland. Discover a place where different cultures and flavours came together, the setting for contrasts where now signs of devotion reign amongst the numerous churches. Look around and you’ll still be able to touch the remains of a farm life, told through the many mills, the ancient oil mills that still operate now and the stone bridges scattered amongst the green countryside.
