La Scellana B&B rurale sul fiume

  • Bed & Breakfast
via Tiglieto 20 - Frazione Acquabianca - 17048 Urbe - Province of Savona - Italy

We offer an authentic rural place, where you can take a break from the hectic pace of modern life. For those looking for themselves and not a place to consume.

You will find a traditional B&B, with the same spirit that characterized these structures when they were born, that is with the pleasure of sharing their home with the guests.
We want to share first of all the spirit with which we approached these places when we came here from the city. We have tried to respect what this place has been over the years.
The house remained what it was with just a few tweaks; rather we did our best to clean up the forest and rebuild the gardens in the once cultivated fields. We have therefore opted for minimal impact interventions, preferring the care that nature has made available or that the old peasants have built over time.
When we decided to open our house to the guests we thought of a reception with a very limited environmental impact that would preserve and enhance the territory. There was no need to create anything specific for this activity, because the place itself has all the features of beauty and peace that allow those fleeing from the city to find their ideal refuge.
The Scellana is within a territory rich in places of considerable naturalistic interest: here the air and the waters are pure, the acoustic and luminous pollution almost absent. And it is for this reason that walking along the paths or walking through woods or along the watercourses it is easy to come across pristine places where nature offers new sensory experiences for a citizen. It is therefore an ideal place for what is called "slow rural tourism".
Who comes here does not find TV but the view over lawns and vegetable gardens, not solarium and swimming pool but a garden with old reclaimed deck chairs and a stream with clear waters where to dive, not exotic essences but the smell of freshly baked bread, wood, flowers and aromatic herbs put to dry.
The accommodation includes a double bedroom on the first floor plus two additional beds in another communicating room. The bathroom, on the ground floor, is for your exclusive use.
Then there are the common areas: a kitchen in a typical style of a country house with wooden beams on the ceiling and a wood-fired thermocooker and a living room with a bookcase and computer station (free WI-FI). The sharing of these common spaces will be agreed from time to time.
But it is above all the space around the house that in summer becomes an outdoor dining area and a place to relax (tables, umbrellas, sofa and deck chairs).
In our house the four-legged friends are very welcome.
We would be delighted to introduce you to the area around the Scellana, the Carpescio river with its crystal clear waters and its swimming lakes, the woods and the paths that pass nearby. We will give you all the indications to visit the Alta Valle Orba and the surroundings. You can choose between spending a holiday full of sporting activities or resting, perhaps with a good book on the deckchairs in our garden or on the banks of the Carpescio. All this, however, always characterized by an environment that in itself will help you find your natural rhythms and therefore true relaxation.
The upper valley of the Orba (name that identifies the geographical area where "La Scellana" is located) is rich in attractions both in terms of nature (chestnut woods, high altitude beech woods, itineraries inside the park del Beigua up to the watershed with a breathtaking view of the Ligurian coast), both historical (the rock carvings, the oldest Cistercian monastery in Italy).
If you want to spend some days dedicated to the typical activities of a slow vacation, the Alta Valle d'Orba offers you many possibilities such as:
-Bath in the streams: the fresh clear emerald waters form small ponds and natural pools where you can dive, or small waterfalls where you can have real hydromassages
-Meditation along the river or on the crest of a mountain or in a forest: relax with the sounds of nature, the music of streams, songs of birds.
- Observe and recognize the stars
-Summer walk on the high street of the Ligurian mountains on the full moon night
- Observe a field lit by fireflies
If, on the other hand, you are into physical activity, you will be spoiled for choice: trekking, hiking along waterways, mountain biking, biking, climbing, running, horseback riding, snowshoeing, north walking and kayak.
When you will be with us we will give you all the information that you can already consult on our site before arriving at us.
