There are plenty of opportunities for swimming and paddling in the nearby river and streams.The village is also within walking distance of a larger village, Crespiano, with baker, restaurant/bar and grocer’s shop and is approximately 10 minutes drive to the village of Comano and the same distance to Licciana Nardi.
Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with a lovely, cobbled 13th century pedestrian village lane flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and the many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn and the sports ‘Olympics’ in the summer. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge and overlooks the pretty piazza. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and also offers a good selection of amenities. Comano is at the head of the Taverone valley with a backdrop of the breathtaking Apennine Mountains. There are many walking trails leading from Comano and the surrounding villages to the hills.
