  • immersed in an enchanting glimpse of Diano Valley one of the houses the largest and most beautiful in Europe. Lovely especially the choir area and the beautiful spiral staircase not to mention the gardens.

  • Wonderful. Worth visiting. The Carthusian monasteries were centers of (survival, creating and propagating) culture, industriousness, spirituality, productivity, education ... and, Yes, wealth! And to read (at least) all the information present in the various points of interest. Too bad that (seems to have national provisions) on holidays (we went) the staff is REDUCED and therefore IT is NOT POSSIBLE to VISIT the MONKS ' CELLS (nor the second floor), which for many would be perhaps one of the most important things to visit!!!
