"Away from everything yet close to everything”
Secret Gardens can be described in just a few words.
Just imagine a picturesque village in the Ligurian inland, Borgomaro, where life is slow and relaxed; where the Church bells tell the time; where everybody knows each other and where helping each other is the normal everyday approach.
Now imagine walking through one of the narrow streets (“caruggi” to the locals) of the village, up to the forest boundary to then proceed along a small path through old trees and olive grooves, next to a tiny creek with its waterfalls and natural pools.A few meters on and you will come across an old stone arch, covered in ivy and a small bridge with the creek flowing underneath it.
A couple more steps and suddenly, between the leaves, a clearing. Welcome to Secret Gardens: :a completely refurbished watermill with its lovely terrace gardens for you to enjoy.
You will feel as if time has stopped: just a few hundred meters from the village of Borgomaro you will find yourself in another dimension.
A green oasis, surrounded by hills of olive trees, no streets, no cars, no neighbours, the only "noises" being the birds singing, the bees among the flowers, the creek flowing slowly, the squirrels
jumping on 200 years old walnut trees.
Peace, silence, relax and privacy: the perfect mix for a relaxing and regenerating holiday.
Secret Gardens is the perfect getaway for nature lovers. Walk or cycle through the olive grooves, relax in our private gardens, have a barbecue in the evening
under the stars, with the light of the fireflies around you, refresh in the natural pools of Borgomaro, visit the tiny villages on the sourrounding hills from where the view is simply stunning or go
to the beautiful Ligurian Sea which is just few kilometers away.
