In the Middle Ages, the Oltrepò Pavese was a land of passage for many travelers, wayfarers and traders. But even royals and nobles in search of places of rest and discovery. Here they stopped to reload forces, do business, eat and drink well.
The hill was equipped with strong autonomy and was divided into fiefs, each of them enjoyed a special status and various privileges. Almost an independent kingdom. For this was called - almost in a demeaning way by those who did not like this
favorable condition - the "Terre Diverse". The Valley - with an attitude sometimes a little snob, sometimes a little 'dreamy and distracted - feel distant and detached from everything that surrounds them. Where special rules apply and customs.
A perfect place to "unplug" from their usual context and forget, for a moment, all the rest. A middle ground where Lombardy, Liguria, Piedmont and Emilia Romagna graze themselves, a "secret" place that combines scenery, culture and history of
these four regions in a unique mix only reserved for connoisseurs and those looking for something different.
Less than an hour from Milan, Turin and Genoa and ideal location to reach easily Portofino, the Cinque Terre, Lake Como, the Langhe, castles Piacenza, the Certosa di Pavia and Serravalle where you can find the biggest Fashion Outlet in Europe.
Different lands: a mix of fate and identity of all these four regions ... and to none.
