Campo di Luna-Farmhouse
An inspiring couple who devoted their time into building what is now the sustainable Campo Di Luna-a rustic-chic farmhouse perched on the rolling hill of Sarzana in the northwestern part of Italy (smack in the coastal region of Liguria, with Tuscany to the east) welcomes travelers and students (WWOOF Italia) from around the world who want to experience a sustainable traveling approach.
This farmhouse is engulfed by rolling hills overlooking the azure Le Cinque Terre sea-a sanctuary of peace and relaxation sealed away from the prying eyes. And, it also comes with perks such as nearby cultural attractions like the medieval villages holding centuries of history, and natural parks, including The Cinque Terre National Park (within 25 km from the property). This means staying here you not only experience eco-tourism or cultural immersion, but you also get to be adventurous by mountain biking or hiking off-beaten-the-tracks.
Both Pinuccia, and Alberto practiced organic farming on their four hectares of land growing blackberries, raspberries, olives, apples, cherries, plums, artichokes, asparagus, and local vegetables. And, that’s the reason you would find the freshest and flavorful ingredients in her cuisine. Their sustainable approaches also include using renewable energy, rainwater to irrigate and spring water to drink.
About the Farmhouse Guestrooms:
The immaculate bedroom has wood floor, a double bed with a soft crisp sheet, wooden furniture, a large wardrobe, and an ensuite marble bathroom with shower, and toiletries. And, there can’t be any better place than downing a cup of tea in the large living room set with grey upholstered armchairs, (and a rustic piano as well), which overlooks the verdant landscape. But if you wish to spend a relaxing and private moment surrounded by the enchanting nature of this area, then the outside red hammock sounds like the kind of place to curl up with a good book, while you may also be able to connect to the world with the free Wi-Fi access…
