In the beginning there was woman… in the kitchens of the osteria and everywhere that offers hospitality, on farms taking care of animals, making cheese, keeping bees, and guiding travelers through Alpine valleys.
That’s what we found in Piedmont and Liguria when we started to imagine Wanderit as a source of sincere experiences that reflect the reality of these regions, and their people.
These lands, in fact, are lived and worked by courageous and headstrong women. So we drew up a plan for a fully female itinerary where traveling women can meet women hosts and rediscover values of friendship and complicity that are good for the soul.
We think of the girls on a certain Balearic island who wink when they meet each other in the street: Wanderit for Women winks at all the women out there wouldn’t swap a laugh among friends for anything in the world.
Our proposals for 2020
Witches + SPA
Here the hills host olive groves up to unthinkable heights. Green pastures, chestnut forests, and winding streams complete this colorful picture. This landscape is the result of natural geological evolution, as well as the tenacious work of people who, over the centuries, have bent this wild and hostile territory to their will.
In just 40 kilometers—the blink of an eye—you pass from the famous seaside resorts to the steep slopes of the Ligurian Alps and Monte Saccarello, the highest peak in the region at 2200 meters. The sedimentary rock which characterizes most of this area also typifies the homes that are perfectly integrated in their environment.
Stone is the essence of the valley, and in times past it was the only material used: for masonry, walls, roofs, floors, chairs, flower pots, millstones, fountains, drinking troughs, and even more curious uses.
In the suggestive setting of the Argentina Valley, a few kilometers from Imperia, enjoy relaxation in a unique farmhouse where the protagonist is the olive.
The spa is small and welcoming and in summer a swimming pool overlooking the medieval village to spend the afternoons after trecking
Why witches? These ancient villages hide the tradition of witchcraft, in particular Triora
Valle Maira, Full moon and snow shoes
Wanderit4Women on his second journey takes you to a place of the heart.
This valley which first developed the concept of Eco Tourism in Piedmont is rich in ancestral traditions. The Occitan language is still today the most spoken by the people of Valle. Traditions such as transhumance and high-altitude dairy production are still alive in this vast territory. After the total abandonment following the migration of the second post-war period, the Maira Valley, thanks to the will of those who love it, has been reborn to become a symbol of alpine resistance and eco-sustainable tourism.
