This agritourismo / agri campeggio is a delight. It is close to tourist attractions like Cinque Terre, but far enough away to be a great getaway. The family of Ennio, Donnatella and Mattias couldn't be more welcoming and friendly, with plenty of suggestions of places to visit and useful local information. The farm sits in a pretty valley, down a short, but steepish driveway. We were camping in our own tent, and although they were hugely busy preparing for the Easter rush and hadn't yet opened the camping area for the season, they let us pitch our tent and then use the facilities in the house.
The camping area itself is among the fruit trees on the lower level, a group of new self-catering masionettes are just opening as we were there. They were the old stable block and looked very nice inside. There are also rooms to rent in the main house and the option for a hearty four/five course dinner, cooked by Donnatella, who is a strong proponent of the Slow Food movement. We had a delicious meal with them.
We stayed for four days and would have happily stayed for longer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ca du Chittu is located in the beautiful and untouched 'Val di Vara' valley. Only a half hour drive away, one can find the sea and famous and historic natural park of Cinque Terre. It is the ideal starting point for those who like horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, or to visit the many beautiful sides of Liguria. Restaurant We serve the traditional Ligurian cuisine, and we are proud to be recognized and recommended by the Michelin Guide, Gambero Rozzo and the Slow Food movement. The ingredients of our "zero mile meals" are locally-grown entirely at our farm and our organic neighbors in the vicinity.At our farm we produce the most necessary vegetables for our restaurant. In the ecological cycle, there is no 'waste': Cattle is fed with the left-over's from the restaurant, manure is used as fertilizer to grow crops, while maintaining and cleaning the forest leaves us enough wood to heat the house during winter. And with the ash the fruit trees are mulched... Camping Our rustic green campground is immersed in nature. A recently paved road leads to beautiful and secluded pitches and fields with cooling shade, grass and wood chips. Our agricampeggio is loved by those who want to camp as 'green' as possible.Every day we offer freshly picked organic vegetables and fruit from our farm, as well as self-made honey and various marmalades. Accomodations The rooms and apartments of Ca du Chittu breath with authentic Italian country life. The old farmhouse was built in the 1950's, having been refurbished to the standards of 'green' building practices. The contoured walls store heat during the day and return it at night.
