Why The Owner chose Cinque terre

Drignana is one of the largest villages of the hinterland, built by the Colombo family. The area in the past has had a strong VALENZA FARM (cultivation of grapes, corn, wheat and vegetable gardens) also favored by the presence of water collected in tanks for irrigation of farmlands. The geomorphology of the site is characterized by terraced bands supported by dry stone walls of local stone derived from natural stone clearance of the land (already present in the XI and XII).

The changes brought by man over a thousand years of history, with the work on continued generations, they replaced the original forest cover with vine cultivation in terraces making the climate drier. Unlike the BIG MURAGLIAe the Egyptian pyramids were built with forced labor, the architecture of the drywall is constructed so VOLUNTARY by the locals. It is estimated a total length of 6720 km of dry stone walls.

The "NEW YORK TIMES" crowns Vernazza and inserts, the only Italian city, in the TOP 20 of places to visit in 2013 (18th place), especially for its rebirth after the disastrous flood of 25.10.2011. In the article, one of the places to visit for aesthetic reasons, cultural, missed events, Vernazza, is emphasized and enhanced the pride of the inhabitants in the sustainable reconstruction of the village and its territory. The project for the recovery of the historical center is guaranteed by the supervision of the architect Free RICHARD ROGERS who attends Vernazza for half a century.
