The Torretta of Casa Borsi was, in ancient times, the granary of the area. The original building consisted of a ground floor and two floors of stone tower for the protection of the wheat in defense of the rodents. In the '70s and' 90s my grandfather built two habitable floors (including one attic) at the level of the tower, thus obtaining apartments in the green and quiet of the Val di Vara. Recently renovated, the house offers all the comforts, a large garden and private parking.

Lovely stay in the beautiful surroundings
Already from the first email contact with the owner Alessi Garolla we had a good feeling. Helpfully we were escorted to La Torretta. It's indeed a nice historical Italian apartment with beautiful old olive trees garden where we could relax on the terrace after a day of beach or sight of a village in Cinque Terre. The bathroom and bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is small but everything is included and did not disturb us because we did everything outside, including barbecuen. Alessio has carefully refurbished the historic apartment, we were the first guests and the non-avoidable beginner's pericles were solved immediately. If there is a problem, Alessio responds directly or by phone or by SMS.
To visit the villages in Cinque Terre we have done everything by public transport, which is a fine solution, for example, by train from La Spezia. But to be able to do groceries you need a car because there is no bakery or supermarket within walking distance. So next time we go to this area, we will return to La Torretta but then by car (instead of the bus), with a wink to Alessio, thank you again :-)
