Costa Lourens, Agriturismo, Torre Pellice

The agritourism is located in an old farmhouse of 1832 in Costa Lorenzo of Torre Pellice, in the heart of the Waldensian valleys, at an altitude of 750 m, surrounded by chestnut woods. It is precisely the production of chestnuts that characterizes the farm, certified organic since 1999; beside it, the production of berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and currant), mountain potatoes and vegetables in general. The presence of bees in summertime ensures a good pollination to fruit trees and allows an excellent production of chestnut honey and linden trees (Tilia).

Since 2004, next to agricultural activity, the farm can also lodge in a rural independent apartment with the kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms with six beds.By the summer of 2014, completed the renovation of the building in the respect of the pre-existing characteristics such as wooden beams at sight, lose coverage, local stonewalls, the farm started the restaurant activity.

Almost exclusively local products are used for foods preparation: meat from animals raised in the Valley, local cheeses, including the famous “saras del fèn”, cured meats and mustardela who marry perfectly with fruits and vegetables produced in the farm and wild herbs of the area. Pasta is homemade using also the chestnut flour of our fruits and processed in the Valley.
