Overview

Valbrevenna Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Refurbished stone house for hikers and families with children and/or pets

Casa Borgo in the hamlet Tonno in the untouched Brevenna valley, 40 kilometers far from the cultural melting pot Genoa and the seaside, is the right place for those ho really want to relax. Pure nature as a balm for spirit and soul. The archaic atmosphere of this village will have surely effect on you. Casa Borgo, the former village school, has been restored respecting the old, architectonical features and now offers all comforts. Thus the former barn became a rustic kitchen, the school rooms two bedrooms. A large roof terrace invites to sunbathing and panoramic views around the green Brevenna valley. Tourists are considered 'aliens' here, but the local residents, who have left the city to stay in the houses of their ancestors, will become immediately your friends.The community of Tonno is very engaged in preserving nature and architecture of the village.

Discover a world of yesterday ...: I have to confess, Casa Borgo is not the right place for shopping- and computer-addicted people or those who think Italy that means VIPs and glamorous lifestyle. But just do it as Casa Borgo´s owner. Avoid for a while any phone ringing and traffic noise. Get rid of your usual multitasking and concentrate on a contemplative dolce far niente. Start your holiday in Casa Borgo with a walk to the source 'Moia' with ‘healing water’, used for centuries by the locals. But no fear: the village also has a direct water supply. Meet the locals at the church square, which is now a meadow with a children's playground, because pastor Don Stefano from the 20 km distant Savignone celebrates mess only once a month.

Amidst unspoilt nature ...: Tonno in the nature park Monte Antola is the ideal starting point for hiking- tours. A must is the climb to Monte Antola (1,500 m). On the way back you stop at Elio and Laura´s, a young couple that lives totally self-sufficient in a deserted village and will prepare delicious dishes for you.

Hot minded people will find slowdown in the cool waters of the torrent Brevenna. Who loves adrenaline kicks, tries free climbing in the nearby Reopasso rocks. Explore also the scattered villages of the Brevenna valley, the frescoes from the 15th century in Mereta or the Farmers Culture Museum in Senarega. A return to civilization (such as a day trip into the cultural metropolis Genoa) should be made with the old Casella train.

The neighbourhood to the region Piedmont, known for wine and trufle, is ideal for daily escursions such as Gavi and the Langhe around Acqui Terme.

With culinary highlights and all comfort: For passionate cooks Casa Borgo offers the 'devices' and the organically grown ingredients of the Brevenna valley.

Corrado in Tonno supplies you with fresh bread and vegetables from his orchard, zou can get dairy cheese in Nenno, organic meat from the butcher in Ternano, bread and pastry from the organic bakery in Avosso. There is also a well-equipped supermarket. What you miss in between, you will buy in the Alimentari in Molino Vecchio with daily newspapers. In Molino Vecchio you find also a pharmacy and a restaurant-pizzeria-bar that sells cigarettes.

And don´t miss the 5-course menu in 'Il Camminetto' in Nenno for a reasonable price under a romantic pergola or inside in front of the fireplace.

Ferienglück pur !!!

  • 5 of 5
Hier fanden wir Ruhe, Friede, Freiheit ... Das Haus ist klasse, die Zimmer großzügig, die Dachterrasse ein Traum. Es ist absolut still, das haben sogar die Kinder genossen. Morgens Frühstück vor dem Haus, dann wandern auf einsamen Pfaden mit kleinen wundervollen Abenteuer und anschließend in den Gumpen schwimmen und sich fühlen wie - echt, zufrieden, glücklich. Genua ist gleich um die Ecke - eine tolle Stadt. Dann das Meer - und dann schnell wieder zurück in unser Feriendomizil - ein echter Ferientraum. Wir (11, 11, 14, 48,48Jahre) haben unsere Ferienglück genau hier gefunden!

Tonno ist die Ruhe selbst

  • 5 of 5
Am Ende des Tals, dort wo die Straße aufhört, liegt Tonno. Ruhig, beschaulich, italienisch. Das wunderschöne alte Haus liegt im Zentrum, ist groß und geräumig, bietet von der Sonnenterasse bis zum alten Ofen alles was das gestresste Herz begehrt. Die Vermieterin kümmert sich rührend um die Gäste und das Haus, so dass für einen Urlaub fernab der Touristenstrassen alles bestens vorbereitet ist. In den Bergen drumherum kann man sich in der üppigen Flora und Fauna baden und bei gutem Wetter die Strände um Genua entdecken. Ort und Haus sind nicht nur für Einsiedler interessant, auch Kinder können die kleinen Gassen, das Haus und die Wanderwege bestens nutzen, um ihr Italien zu entdecken.

Sylvester in unberührter Natur

  • 5 of 5
Vom ersten Haus der Besitzerin, Il Casone bei Rapallo, wo wir Weihnachten verbracht haben, sind wir dann ins unberührte Brevenna-Tal gefahren, um dort Sylvester zu feiern. Das Haus ist genauso gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet wie das an der Riviera. Auch hier hatten wir keine Heizungsprobleme. Es war genug Holz da und der Pellet-Ofen in der Küche machte alles von selbst. Tonno ist wirklich einmalig. Über Sylvester und Neujahr waren auch viele Zweitresidenten da und wir haben mit ihnen auf dem Kirchplatz angestoßen, wo es auch heißen Glühwein gab. Obwohl Schnee gefallen war, konnten wir bequem zum Monte Antola hinaufsteigen. Von der bewirtschafteten Hütte hat man eine tolle Aussicht auf die ligurischen Seealpen. Die Straßen waren gut befahrbar, aber wir haben uns so wohl gefühlt in Tonno, das wir nur zum Einkaufen ins Tal gefahren sind. Tonno macht Lust auf mehr. Im Sommer kommen wir wieder!
Viele Grüße von Daniele und Martina und Hund Pelle

Einmaliges Erlebnis

  • 5 of 5
Man fühlt sich zeitversetzt in längst vergangene Zeiten, ohne auf Luxus zu verzichten (dank Bad, Küche, TV, moderner Schlafzimmer). Die Natur ist großartig, man lebt mittendrin und sollte keine Angst vor Kleinlebewesen wie z. B. Spinnentieren oder Glühwürmchen haben (wir haben noch nie so ein leuchtend Helles wie nachts im Schlafzimmer gesehen). Wer es tagsüber kühl mag, nutzt den schattigen Vorgarten und knüpft dort Kontakt zu den Dorfbewohnern, die auf der Dorfstrasse vorbeikommen, wers warm liebt, nutzt die Dachterasse mit unvergleichlichem Ausblick auf die umliegenden, grünen Hügel. Die Leute sind sehr gastfreundlich und wer italienisch spricht, dem wird es bestimmt nicht langweilig.
Die Zufahrtsstrasse ist "abenteuerlich" und wird bei jeder Befahrung gefühlt "enger", führte aber nie zu Problemen (dank Hupe und umsichtiger, erfahrener fahrweise der Einheimischen).
Dank ausliegender Wanderkarte waren die Ausflüge zum Monte Antola und den Badeseen kein Problem. Die Badeseen sind paradiesisch und zu Fuß in nur 20
Minuten erreichbar. Geschäfte, Bars, Restaurants etc. haben wir nicht vermisst, dafür hat man keinerlei touristische Hektik. Einmal daran gewöhnt, mag man sich dem Trubel im Einkaufzentrum oder in Genua gar nicht mehr aussetzen.
Zusammengefasst ist diese Art Urlaub sicher nicht jedermanns Sache, aber wer Naturnähe, Ruhe und Einsamkeit sucht, der ist hier goldrichtig.
Zuletzt sei noch die Betreuung durch Jacqueline lobend erwähnt, die für Tipps und Tricks stets telefonisch oder per SMS ereichbar war.
Anja, Ina, Michael und Bastian nebst ebenfalls gut erholtem Hund.

The hamlet Tonno (918 m) is at the end of the Brevenna valley below Monte Antola in a huge nature park about 40 km from Genoa and at the border between the region Liguria and Piemont. Approaching Tonno you can get a first impression of the archaic and untouched landscape bordering the torrent Brevenna, that locals use as an alternative to swimming in the sea. A well-maintained road takes you in just 30 minutes from the noisy civilization into a silence to which the ears of stressed city commuters have yet to get used. Tonno is also ideal for families with children. While the parents take it easy of sunbathing on the roof terrace of Casa Borgo, the youngsters go to the playground in front of the church. Hikers can climb in two hours directly from Tonno on marked paths up to Monte Antola. Who loves it more easy, can reach in 20 minutes small lakes with waterfalls and spend there - equipped with a picnic basket - the day just doing nothing.

Other Activities: Freeclimbing, Footing, Canyoning

Inside you will be delighted about the rustic country house furniture and about the many 200 year-old farmer tools, that having been found in the former stables, now are exposed decoratively on the walls.
