This place is terrific. It is totally genuine, unpretentious and very homely. You feel you're visiting a dear friend who's spent the whole day in the kitchen preparing your evening meal. We could only stay one night, but would return for longer as soon as occasion arises. Donatella could not have been more welcoming (despite our interrupting her cooking), our first floor room was comfortable, the bathroom was fine and lazing on our private terrace and looking at the wooded hills until dinner time was a joy. Donatella's husband and son served us platter after platter of scrumptious food and paired this with a robust red wine. Of the three starters, we loved the deep-fried zucchini flowers with doughy filling (light and delicious) and the diminutive tomatoes in the salad could not have been bettered. The pasta with a special tomato sauce (cooked together with meat that had then been removed) was so good and the pieces of sautéed rabbit were full of flavour. Alas, we could not do justice to the fruit tart afterwards. Breakfast was home-baked bread and cake with plenty of home-made jams. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ca du Chittu is located in the beautiful and untouched 'Val di Vara' valley. Only a half hour drive away, one can find the sea and famous and historic natural park of Cinque Terre. It is the ideal starting point for those who like horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, or to visit the many beautiful sides of Liguria. Restaurant We serve the traditional Ligurian cuisine, and we are proud to be recognized and recommended by the Michelin Guide, Gambero Rozzo and the Slow Food movement. The ingredients of our "zero mile meals" are locally-grown entirely at our farm and our organic neighbors in the vicinity.At our farm we produce the most necessary vegetables for our restaurant. In the ecological cycle, there is no 'waste': Cattle is fed with the left-over's from the restaurant, manure is used as fertilizer to grow crops, while maintaining and cleaning the forest leaves us enough wood to heat the house during winter. And with the ash the fruit trees are mulched... Camping Our rustic green campground is immersed in nature. A recently paved road leads to beautiful and secluded pitches and fields with cooling shade, grass and wood chips. Our agricampeggio is loved by those who want to camp as 'green' as possible.Every day we offer freshly picked organic vegetables and fruit from our farm, as well as self-made honey and various marmalades. Accomodations The rooms and apartments of Ca du Chittu breath with authentic Italian country life. The old farmhouse was built in the 1950's, having been refurbished to the standards of 'green' building practices. The contoured walls store heat during the day and return it at night.
