Foresteria La Merlina is an idea inspired by Marco and Luciana’s desire to face a job challenge. With their past as owners of one of the most influential delicatessen in Tortona, and well rooted in the Italian gastronomic panorama, they decided that it was time for them to go back to their origins, in that area nestled between Val Curone and Val Borbera.
Thanks to the precious work to recover a Seventies abandoned villa (the renovations lasted 6 years), in 2006 one of the most dynamic realities of the entire touristic panorama in West Piedmont, located in one of the most spectacular spots of the entire area, was born.
On the Giarolo Mountain slopes, located between the Curone Valley and the Borbera Valley, with a breathtaking view over the Tortona hills, Foresteria La Merlina is the ideal place from where you can start exploring the surroundings, reachable both on foot or by the latest model mountain bikes available on site. You can relax by the swimming pool sipping a cocktail, admiring the sunset.
In the quiet restaurant with thirty seats, you can taste all the best products that our territory offers. The ingredients come from a rigorously short supply chain, exclusively from the Foresteria vegetable garden and farm and from selected local agricultural farms.
