Property


The medieval village of Torri Superiore is a little jewel of popular architecture situated in the foothills of the Ligurian Alps, a few kilometres from both the Mediterranean Sea and the French border, close to the coastal town of Ventimiglia. Dating from the 13th century, the village consists of three main buildings with over 160 vaulted rooms, all linked by an intricate labyrinth of stairways and terraces. Its complex and fascinating structure has been compared to a labyrinth or fortress, built on the side of the mountain.

The village has been largely restored and is now open to ecologically-minded visitors for workshops, courses, cultural and environmental education and also as guest accommodation. It is perfect for those interested in learning more about ecovillage living, or who would simply like a short break in beautiful surroundings. We have single, double and group rooms available and Torri is conveniently situated for local walking.

We have single, double and family/multiple rooms available, either with en-suite bathrooms or close to central bathrooms. Communal dining rooms, terraces, meeting rooms, a library, a children’s playroom, Yoga room, the “Al Mathusalem Club” with table football and darts, and workshops are also open to our guests. Our Restaurant offers carefully prepared meals to a set menu, based mainly on local and organic produce. The cuisine is typically Mediterranean: some meat, some fish and plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit! Meals are served communally at a self-service buffet at regular times: everybody sits together at large tables, so guests get the chance to share the company of residents.

The atmosphere at Torri is simple and informal, well suited for groups and individuals looking for unique and vibrant holiday accommodation or who are interested in learning about the ecovillage experience.
