“IL MIO NIDO E' SITUATO IN UN POSTO INCANTEVOLE (…) ALLE SPALLE DEL
PAESE, LE DOLCI COLLINE APPENNINICHE COPERTE DI OLIVI E DI PINI CHE
OFFRONO IL VERDE IN TUTTE LE SUE SFUMATURE...” (Rosa Luxemburg)

The name of our b&b “Antica Porta delle Cinque Terre” is connected to the area in which it lies because since the time of the Romans Pignone was the ancient passageway in land to the sea of the Cinque Terre and in relation to this historical fact we would like to give some as to why you should visit this area and stay in our bedandbreakfast.
We  are  situated  in an  ideal position for those of you who would like a holiday by
 
the sea: in only 15 minutes you can find the seaside resort of Levanto, Vernazza and Monterosso. We are just 20 minutes from La Spezia where you can catch a ferry to Lerici, Portovenere and the Cinque Terre and in 25 minutes on the motorway you can reach the Versilia.
 
 

Our  bed&breakfast  is  ideal  for  those  of  you  looking  for  a quality, “low-cost”
 
holiday : we ourselves have noticed on our travels throughbut Europe that a bed&breakfast can allow tourists to enjoy more frequent visits abroud without having to give up clean, welcoming and pleasant accommodation. Campers needing to stop-orer can find a home from home and are more than welcome.
 
Our  area  is  also  ideal  for  those  you  enjoy outdoor sports : the nearby Natural
 
Park of the Cinque Terre offers the opportunity to go for walks and excursions along clifftops (eg. “Via dei Santuari”, “Via dell’Amore”, “Sentiero Azzurro” etc); the Val di Vara and the Natural Park of Monte Marcello Magra of which we are a part offer an extensive network of signposted CAI footpaths between the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri and the coastal area which are suitable for trekking, horse-riding and mountain-biking. Close-by near the Santuario di Nostra Signora di Soviore, there is also an important take-off point for paragliding; in addition the river Vara offers the possibility for canoeing, rafting, hydrospeed, torrentismo, and fishing. Finally, cyclists and bikers who love Ligurian “bends” are also welcome.
The  area  is  characterised  by  its   chestnut   and   pine-tree   woods   which   are
 
particularly attractive on cool summer evenings. Silence and tranquillity are the norm: so if you are used to living in the chaos of the city with its smog and traffic and you can’t wait to read that book you have been meaning to read for ages - in complete relaxation - this is the place for you
We  are  situated in an area of ancient local and peasant/farming culture therefore
 
of interest to those of you who enjoy following historical, artistic and cultural routes following historical, artistic and cultural routes which are illustrated on a separate page.
We also are near the cultural Park of “Eugenio Montale” of Monterosso al Mare and the cultural Park of Lerici, “Golfo dei Poeti” and we can organize excursions with a local touristic guide.
Finally if you love typical Ligurian cuisine,  here you can find tasty dishes thanks to
 
the wise of produce from the land, woods and sea. In the surrounding gastronomical excursions or “sagre” gastronomical excursion or “sagre” are organised which will be indicated on our website. It would be a shame to leave the Val di Vara without first tusting the meat “ravioli”, vegetable pie or the “sciacchetrà” wine from the Cinque Terre. We only offer breakfast but as “local expert” we will advise you as to the whereabouts of the typical “trattoria” in our area.
