What you'll do

I propose to share my walks with the goats in the Regional Park of the Ligurian Alps, at the slow and gentle rhythm of nature. The routes vary according to the time of day, weather conditions and season. Sometimes I take you near the stream where we can sit on a stone and slide your feet into the crystal clear fresh water of the lakes; or we go up in height to enjoy a wider panorama until we see the sea. We are in the Mediterranean scrub and we walk slowly on little known paths to allow the goats to eat time: these animals are expert gatherers and by observing them we learn something, always. I live in nature, I live in beauty and I propose to take home bits of wonder: the colors, smells and sounds of the Ligurian hinterland.
Other things to note
Dogs are not allowed.
We speak Italian, English and French.

  • Identity verified
I was born a citizen, I lived in Milan and Rome and for 6 years I have lived here in Rocchetta Nervina with Philippe, my husband, and our 3 children. We have chosen a simpler life. I am a goat: grazing goats, a small flock, in this marvelous territory, which is never the same and which surprises me every day. We have milk and continue to experiment with cheeses: all the beauty that surrounds us nourishes us.

Where you'll be

We start from the town square, pass the old bridge over the Rio Barbaira and cross the small medieval village. We arrive on the north east side of the village and walk the mule track along the other stream, the Rio Oggia. We arrive at the goat stable: we are ready for the departure towards the pasture. The walk lasts 2 hours, but if it is a beautiful day we stay in the pasture 3/4 hours and swim in one of the many secret lakes ...

Esperienza meravigliosa in luoghi suggestivi. La camminata insieme a capre, caprone e caprettini percorre mulattiere con centinaia di anni di storia. Da Mai Mona, la Grande Madre sanatrice e fecondatrice delle acque, poi vennero i romani e i saraceni, infine il priorato novalicense...e il tempo si fermò. L'esperienza di vita di Federica & Philippe poi è il valore aggiunto. Porteremo nel cuore ogni momento di questa giornata.

La promenade avec Federica et les chèvres était une expérience unique. C'était incroyable de découvrir ces lieux fantastiques et hors du temps, en pleine nature. Federica est passionnante et sa démarche de vie est vraiment inspirante. Les chèvres sont adorables ! Les chevraux sont super agiles et drôle. Le goûter d'une tarte qui sortait du four juste pour nous, pris sur les restanques dans une oliveraie était parfait. puis le bain dans une piscine naturelle secrète sous la cascade était magique. Finalement on a goûté le pain fabriqué à l'ancienne par Philipe et c'était un délice !

Esperienza molto particolare e molto suggestiva, senz'altro da provare per uscire almeno per qualche ora dalla solita routine cittadina. L'interazione con l'host e gli animali ci hanno fatto sentire parte di un mondo speciale ma talvolta dimenticato.
