Farmhouse Bellaria is a classical farmhouse in Piemont style, part of it to be drawn back to the half of the nineteenth Century. It is located in a quite hilly area of the countryside between Alessandria and Acqui Terme.
Far from the inhabitant centre and from the main roads, it is surrounded by a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that follows the rhythm of nature. Foxes, deers, squirrels, wild boars and many kinds of birds live in that countryside and very often they get close to the houses and to the small lake, which is located inside the property of the farmhouse.
During the week an organic vegan diet will progress from a mainly raw diet to a purely liquid one with one day of fasting.
