Are you looking for a special holiday destination to travel to with family or friends this year?
Do you enjoy mountains, forests, cycling, walking, Italian food, Italian caffe and swimming in
clean water? Do you like medieval Italian villages? Would you also like to spend the odd day
lazing on a Mediterranean beach? If so, look no further! We can offer you all of the above.
Agricampeggio Il Sogno can be found tucked away in the green Gordale-river valley, in the Parco Naturale Regionale delle Alpi Liguri. Il Sogno is owned by the Cooperativa di Comunitá
Alta Val Nervia – it’s a cooperative venture between Italians and a number of foreigners with strong local ties – a cooperative that develops green projects with the object of breathing new
life into Liguria’s hinterland.
Agricampeggio Il Sogno is being developed bearing in mind the need to protect the nature, landscape and cultural authenticity of this hinterland and also achieve ecological sustainability in relation to the use of water, power and transport, waste processing, material use and also in relation to the creation of the ecological vegetable gardens.
A small family-friendly agricampeggio featuring 5 safari-tents, with 4 people capacity, and 3 safari-tents for 5 persons. Each with their own kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a covered terrace, submerged in a natural landscape with a unique position overlooking the hills and forest, with access to the clear water stream Il Gordale.
The tents are situated on vast terraced grounds, which offer privacy
and tranquillity with only birdsong and the soothing sound of the babbling stream to break the silence. On the terraces you’ll find
our organic-vegetable gardens, fruit-trees and fine-smelling herbs.
Our wonderful place brings you the ultimate in peace, an idyllic stream for a refreshing dip, proximity to mediterrain beaches and pretty medieval villages of Liguria.
Three small medieval villages – Buggio, Castelvittorio and Pigna – are all within just three kilometres of Il Sogno. Visitors to them will enjoy authentic trattorias, beautiful piazzas, a historic museum, a bocce and tennis court, and last but not least, the most delicious ice-creams from the local pasticceria.
There are seven of these borghi in the Alta Val Nervia, of which the valley forms part (the other four are Apricale, Rochetta Nervina, Isolabona and Bajardo). A total of approximately 2,500 people live in the Alte Valle Nervia, but these numbers swell significantly when tourists from every corner of the world visit the area in the summer
Anyone who fancies a lazy day soaking up the sun can take the bus to one of the many small beaches alongside the Mediterranean. Alternatively, you might like to take the train from Ventimiglia to Menton, the Giardini Botanici Hanbury in Latte or the child-friendly Oceanographic Museum of Monaco. A bike ride along the coast is definitely to be recommended as well. A beautiful 20-km cycle path opened recently, which connects eight small coastal towns and villages.
Our Agricampeggio IL SOGNO is one hour’s drive from Nice Airport
and just 30 minutes from the station in Ventimiglia (by bus or car).
