Immersed in the Ligurian nature, just 2 km from Levanto, in the Cinque Terre area, stands the Villanova Agriturismo, an enchanting 18th century country estate where, among Ligurian culinary traditions and the activity of the farm, guests can find hospitality in rooms and suites and apartments obtained from the main villa and two rustic of the last century.
Agriturismo Villanova History
The eighteenth-century manor house of the Barons Massola, just five minutes drive from the seaside village of Levanto, is the hub of the Villanova farm. At its side stand the family church - dedicated to St. Thomas and presumably dating back to 1664 - the parsonage and three cottages. Hospitality is offered in types of accommodation distributed in different structures: a suite and an apartment in the villa; an apartment in the rectory; rooms and junior suites inside one of the rural houses.
The rooms are finished to the last detail and furnished with antiques; some also have kitchenettes. The apartments are equipped with an equipped kitchen and can accommodate from 2 to 6 people: in this case, breakfast, based on organic ingredients, is provided only on request. Decisive colors such as blue, red and ocher characterize walls, jambs and fabrics, giving rise to environments of rustic-elegant taste full of vivacity and marked personality. Outside there are plenty of space to enjoy outdoor life, with terraces and gardens equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas, tables and barbecues.
The farm produces mainly oil, wine and fruit (various types of preserves are prepared), and all products can be purchased by guests. The owners personally manage all the activities, which also include an extensive program of cooking classes, painting, decoration and entire weeks dedicated to wellness (yoga, meditation).
In the surroundings there are numerous paths of particular interest for trekking and cycle-tourism, practicable with the company's mountain bikes and also for those who are not used to long hours of walking. From the top of the hills the view sweeps across the valley, which in the evening comes alive with the thousand lights of the small hamlets around Levanto, the so-called "Cinque Terre gate".
