Tent on the River
About this micro camping
We offer a place of beauty and tranquility, to be enjoyed in a simple way.
Nature is your companion on this journey. By observing the flowing river, and listening to the perennial sound of water, you are able to wash your whole being, deeply purifying yourself, and living fully present with every moment.
The light and breathable architecture of a cotton tent will welcome you as a basic refuge, a shelter impervious to rain but permeable to emotions. A simple interior, with a comfortable double bed, a light source, a few cushions, and a wood stove for cool evenings, provide you the comfort and charm of a truly beautiful shelter.
There is an outside bed so you can lay by the river and in the night-time look up at the stars, a truly magical experience if you've never done so. In the same area, just for you, there is a small kitchenette in a vintage roulotte and a compost toilet.
This is an opportunity for people who want a break from "normal" habits and lifestyles. For this reason we do not provide internet.
We prefer to invite you to connect with the land, to the sound of the river flowing, to the surrounding trees and rocks. For a few days, we invite you to do nothing, absolutely nothing, enjoy the lack of commitments, and be truly present with yourself.
We will be available to advise and support you, if you wish. For example, if lighting the fire is not your forte, we can help you.
We can also accompany you, if you wish, as a nature guide to discover the surrounding trails and natural beauty. We can recommend the best things to see and taste in the area.
All this is inside the Beigua Natural Park. The river separates the provinces of Savona and Genoa. Hills and mountains separate your tent from the sea, which is very close, as the crow flies. Nearby passes the famous Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a path that runs along the Apennine ridge with incredible views of the sea. The Faiallo pass with incredible views over the sea is half an hour from here. Worth noting is the nearby Cistercian Abbey of Tiglieto, the first built by the order in 1120 and recently restored.
In an hour's drive you are at the sea of Varazze or the city of Genoa. In an hour and a half you are at the sea in the area of Camogli, the peninsula of Portofino. In two hours you can get to Cinque Terre. If you want to taste wines and typical Italian foods, the lower Piedmont is half an hour by car. The area of Ovada is here, with wine productions worthy of attention, including dolcetto and barbera among the wines to remember.
