Certificate of Excellence
Olivium is situated in the hills overlooking La Spezia, a strategic starting point for visiting all the area's beauty spots and places of interest (Cinque Terre, Lerici, Portovenere).The Residence offers independent fully equipped accommodations for 2 to 6 people, all with air-conditioner, satellite TV and a shower and hairdryer in each bathroom. Being at Olivium is not just about the pleasant stay but also about experiencing serenity surrounded by orchards of olive trees. The owner Mr. Nicola Ricci who is an experienced, professional olive oil sommelier, will share his profound knowledge by organizing "Smelling, Tasting and Eating olive oil classes" to teach you how to recognize a good olive oil. In the evening, there is the possibility to have an Italian "aperitivo" by ordering some "bruschetta" and cool drinks and taste them in the patio overlooking the countryside. On request there is also the possibility to attend cooking classes and yoga classes with a certified yoga teacher, who will organise Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga sessions as well as meditation and walking meditation sessions outdoor.
