Agriturismo Il Filo di Paglia is located in Pavareto, a small and remote village of the High Vara Valley (Alta Val di Vara), surrounded only by woods and silence.
Despite being just 20 minutes far from the Carrodano motorway exit, you immediately realize to be in an enchanted and unspoiled valley.
And it is here, in the old land of their grandparents, that the Azaghi family has decided to start their own agritourism business!
The search for a more intimate contact with nature and the desire to grow their own food led them to sell their renowned fish restaurant in front of Portofino and to start their life here again.
"The idea was to live off the food and energy that we were able to produce, respecting the environment that welcomed us. And, at the same time, allowing our customers to enjoy the fruit of our work, enjoying an authentic holiday in a fantastic region of Italy"
The organic farm boasts of five thousand square meters of land divided between vegetable garden, orchard, pasture for cows and flowers for bees.
The two eco-sustainable "Filo di Paglia" residences stand on the top of the estate, with their own garden and relaxation areas.
The reared cows are of the Cabannina breed (Slow Food Presidium), typical of the Ligurian Apennines. The Cabannina is a quality dairy and meat cow, not very productive, but rustic and resistant (as Ligurian people), which adapts very well to the poor and wooded Ligurian territory.
They live in their natural habitat, free to graze all day long.
