Who we are  Our oil mill

My family was a native of the Val Prino, sunny land of Liguria, Riviera dei Fiori. Silver valley when the branches of the olive trees flutter in the wind. Golden valley, as it was called because of the abundance and the quality of its oil. Valley behind Imperia that starts from the sea and is protected between two hills covered by olive groves.

Since I was a child, I picked up the olives with my little basket; knelt under the ancient olive trees I observed my grandparents, who knocked down the olives and cuddled the trees: seeing them I learned to do it too. Now after many year, with the help of my son, I still do it. We recover also deserted olive groves, put them again in production, and make a good oil, only with the valued Taggiasca variety.

We accommodate our guests in the homes of my family, rearranged with attention and care, keeping intact the old atmosphere but warranting all the comforts of today. For the guests, who usually become also friends, we organize life experiences in the fields to let know them our work and, if they want, to share it with us.

An original experience we can offer to our guests is the knowledge of the quality of extra virgin olive oils by taste courses.
