monte pu



property description:  Halfway between the Cinque Terre and Portofino, and 45km from Genoa, this is an idyllic holiday spot. Two hundred hectares of greenery, rich in wildlife, Mediterranean flora, with a view of the sea and with a unique beauty, this is l'Azienda Agricola Monte Pł. The farm sits 700 metres above sea level, with a view encompassing the gulf of Tigullio and, in the distance, Corsica.


The main part of the complex is an 8th century Benedictine monastery, offering a large comfortable relaxation area for guests. And it is set in a place of remarkable beauty. A wide open space with uninterrupted views; a place for those who wish to meditate or simply relax; a refuge for travellers to rest and let their minds become still - here the woods, fields and nature live in perfect harmony. At Monte Pł you can still see fox and wild boar, and there are pure water springs.

Monte Pł is also ideal for children. There is a play area with swings and other outdoor toys, an enormous renovated barn with table tennis and table football, and board games for rainy afternoons.
