Garlenda - Untouched town above Alassio
We stayed in a vacation rental by owner at the golf community adjacent to Garlenda, a tiny town above Alassio, last Spring. It was magic!
We had lunch at Rosalina's -- home cooked Wild Boar, rabbit, and baby lamb chops. The "verdura" was spinachi & potate, served family style, and, as we were enjoying our lunch at a table by the window, a flock of sheep wandered its way up the street to the field across the way.
Sometimes, the best part of travel is being able to stop being a tourist, and start being in the moment.
