Holiday farm - Albergo Diffuso - Organic Farm
Good cooking, nature and hospitality. An immersion in the wellness and relaxation of unpolluted landscapes.
We are in the heart of Lunigiana, in the locality of Apella di Licciana Nardi, in the province of Massa Carrara, in the upper Tuscany, at an altitude of 660 m, surrounded by the centuries old chestnut forests of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park
, where the Malaspinas were the undisputed lords of the whole territory.
Our rooms are an extension of the wood of the forests surrounding the holiday farm, almost like branches wrapping you to protect your holiday's quiet. And then the stones, a fundamental element of the culture of Lunigiana, a land of Menhirs. Because hospitality - settled in a rural culture which is slowly disappearing, where welcoming a guest is a central point - is simple and effective at the same time.>>>

Our cooking has a strong connection with the territory and its typical products, and is enlivened by a great passion for the enhancement of the rational recipes and the rediscovery of the ancient tastes. Our organic farm, extending over 600 hectares, represents the main source of products we use to create our much appreciated dishes.>>>
We believe that biodiversity is a primary goal and a value to safeguard.
The rich and looked-after vegetable gardens in Apella are the symbol of a rural agriculture we wanted to preserve. It is a centuries old family-run activity carried out in those lands difficult to plough with mechanical means, which have been recovered thanks to terraces built through dry-stone walls.>>>
