“Great place, lovely food, wonderful people”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

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.

We stayed here in October of 2012, and we had a delightful time. The food was outstanding, including the little fried lemon cookies at night. The dinner was our most memorable dinner of 16 in Italy. Mattia was charming, and the little village is off the beaten path.

This place is terrific. It is totally genuine, unpretentious and very homely. You feel you're visiting a dear friend who's spent the whole day in the kitchen preparing your evening meal. We could only stay one night, but would return for longer as soon as occasion arises. Donatella could not have been more welcoming (despite our interrupting her cooking), our first floor room was comfortable, the bathroom was fine and lazing on our private terrace and looking at the wooded hills until dinner time was a joy. Donatella's husband and son served us platter after platter of scrumptious food and paired this with a robust red wine. Of the three starters, we loved the deep-fried zucchini flowers with doughy filling (light and delicious) and the diminutive tomatoes in the salad could not have been bettered. The pasta with a special tomato sauce (cooked together with meat that had then been removed) was so good and the pieces of sautéed rabbit were full of flavour. Alas, we could not do justice to the fruit tart afterwards. Breakfast was home-baked bread and cake with plenty of home-made jams. Highly recommended.

First of all: it is an agriturismo. Don't expect al the luxury you have in a business hotel in town. such agriturismo's exist as well but in a total different price class. The room was basic but clean. And how many hours of a day you stay in a room in such lovely place? The bed was a fantastic massive wooden bed in which you can lose each other. And the terrace gave us a few relaxing hours (if you don't forget your mosquito repellent).
But the best of it all was the dinner. La mamma is working from the morning to serve the best fresh food you can imagine. Again no high tech but just nice combinations of local things of which we remeber the mountain cheese (region Turin) with the home made pepperoni marmelade as well as the home made pesto genovese as something really exclusive. This was the best place for food we had in 10 days Italy.

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.
