Amongst breathtaking sunsets, small-scale producers and enchanting villages waiting to be discovered


Thanks to the year-round mild and sunny climate, this area – which stretches all the way from Genoa to the French border – is rich with exotic gardens. This is a destination much celebrated by international painters who adored the Mediterranean light and where slow food producers have been cultivating olive, citrus fruit and flowers for generations.

Here food is made with simple and genuine ingredients, making fine use of aromatic herbs, pairing it with superb wines such as the red Rossese and one of the best EVOs produced in the world, thanks to the noble, native Taggiasca olive. 

From chic Sanremo, to medieval villages such as Dolceacqua or Finalborgo, from amazing hiking and biking trails to traditional olive oil mills, this is a hidden corner of Italy, rich in exquisite nature and filled with profound cultural references – all in all an ideal spot whereas to experience what real Italian “slow living” is all about!
