PERTICHE (ROCKY PERCHES) FOR YOU
ROCKY PERCHES (PERTICHE) FOR YOU
A succession of woods and rocks that change colour with the changing seasons, streams and waterfalls that seem to belong to a painting: welcome to Sabbia Valley.
The Chiese river, emissary of Lake Idro, crosses the valley and its glacial basin is the ideal destination for sports fans.
The towns in the valley conceal hidden treasures and stories of great historical interest.
The valley has always been known for its carving craftsmanship, passed down from father to son, and particularly visible on the altars and confessionals of the many famous churches, in particular the exemplary testimonies of the Boscaì family of Levrange.
Not only carving, art and history, but also food and wine - the Bagoss cheese from Bagolino is famous and the area offers superb cuisine that combines the strong flavours of the mountain like mushrooms and game with the delicate flavours of lake perch and trout typically found in streams.
Knowing the valley allows you to find small agri-food producers who, attentive to the passing of the seasons, cultivate the land and raise animals to obtain jams, honey and genuine Formaggella cheeses prepared with love, following the tradition handed down in the family.
In addition to the towns near the Lake the Pertiche area, in the shadow of Corna Blacca, is a place where tradition and modernity redesign new equilibriums and nature imposes respectful tourist development reserved for the few where one can appreciate art, discover the local culture and local flavours.
The area of the Sabbia Valley is a destination of choice for fans of hiking due to the many trails, such as the famous smuggler's trail, named after said activities that once took place between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire; mainly concentrated in smuggling sugar and tobacco from Austria to Italy. The hospitality in small villages is genuine and sincere; in small hotels, restaurants and lodges smiles and cheerfulness are the common denominator of a tourist destination yet to be discovered, but strongly devoted to niche tourism for travellers who want to discover lands where nature is preserved from modernity and where the passing of time is slow and relaxed.
A journey of discovery of magical lands and enchanted, wild and unspoilt nature.
