“All the wonders of life are already here. They’re calling you. If you can listen to them, you will be able to stop running. What you need, what we all need, is silence.”
(Thích Nhất Hạnh, Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise).
Silence is not a way to turn our backs to the world, but to observe it and understand it, because silence is not a disturbing emptiness, it is the listening of our inner voices.

We will walk along some “carrugi”, the characteristic lanes of Ligurian villages, and, from there we will go further up hill on country lanes, which showcase unforgettable sea views. But we are not just talking about one olive grove; an olive grove is actually a world onto itself, with tales, people, hard work and soliloquies. There is something more here: this area boasts blossoms in the fields, and among them, the rare native orchids are found. We will witness a phenomenon, which is unique to Western Liguria.
Protection from climate variations has created the conditions for an exceptional biodiversity. In this corner of Liguria, with its characteristic landscape, dotted with olive trees, and “dry-stone walls” (built with just stones and mud) there lays a site of naturalistic interest, certified at European level. That is where protected vegetable and animal life finds its equilibrium, and it is there that you can find your harmony and balance too.

Just think that there are plants and flowers that only grow here or that the climatic conditions are such that arctic plants are found side by side with tropical flowers. The first in the shade, the second in the sun. It is an environment that must be known, with the appropriate guides, because it makes us beautiful inside, beautiful in knowing and enriches us. A beautiful territory makes ourselves beautiful. We will accompany you on this path.

There will certainly be something that you have already seen in your country, but the great thing is to see it in an incomparable whole. Everywhere, then, you can find olive trees.
