Being part of a group to visit the ecovillage, I learned a lot about the community living there and their way of living, which is fascinating. Gained a great experience and values of socializing with people you've never met before. The building itself is a unique one, that you realize when walking among its paths! Also, the place offers astonishing... More

Torri Superiore is a place I have visited and stayed at several times now and I always leave feeling healthier than when I arrived. The food and beauty of the locale is deeply inspiring. The valley has an incredible river with places to swim and the local town ventimigilia on the coast has a great flea market.

For me, this community felt like home for the three weeks I have spend here. The people are so warm and friendly. The food is absolutely fantastic. The views, beautiful. The nature, so healing. The best place to take break from the rushed city life or to just come and 'find' yourself again. Highly highly recommended!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The medieval village of Torri Superiore is a little jewel of medieval architecture situated in the foothills of the Ligurian Alps, a few kilometres from both the Mediterranean Sea and the French border, close to the coastal town of Ventimiglia. Dating from the 13th century, the village consists of three main buildings with over 160 vaulted rooms, all linked by an intricate labyrinth of stairways and terraces,and has been compared to a labyrinth or fortress, built on the side of the mountain. The village is now entirely restored and is open to ecologically-minded visitors for workshops, courses, cultural and environmental education and also as guest accommodation. It is perfect for those interested in learning more about ecovillage living, or who would simply like a short break in beautiful surroundings. We have single, double and group rooms available and Torri is conveniently situated for local walking. ... more   less
