Ecovillage TORRI SUPERIORE Guesthouse

The little medieval village of Torri Superiore (XIII century) is located in the Ventimiglia hinterland, a few km. away from the sea and the French border. Built at the foothills of the Maritime Alps, on the slope of Monte Grammondo (80 meters above sea level), the hamlet is surrounded by beautiful olive and citrus trees, mimosa and Mediterranean flora. The Bevera river with its lovely swimming ponds is at 5’ on foot.

Since 1989, the “Torri Superiore Cultural Association” has bought and gradually transformed the abandoned village into and Ecovillage with a permanent cultural centre and a guesthouse. A resident community was born and counts now 28 members; almost all the private units and guest house have been completed. Torri Superiore is a member of GEN – Global Ecovillage Network, of RIVE – Rete Italiana Villaggi Ecologici, and of the Italian Permaculture Academy.
