Bordo – the place where your mind comes to rest
Bordo is a mountain village in the northern Italian Alps. It lies on the edge of the wild and romantic Alta Valle Antrona Nature Park on a sunny, south-facing mountain slope. The car-free village can be reached via an old, stone paved footpath uphill in approximately 20 minutes. On this beautiful path the hectic everyday life naturally falls away from us. When we reach the fountain at the entrance to the village, its clear spring water refreshes us and lets us enter a new world.
Bordo is a place of change and contemplation. Calmness in change and letting go of hectic everyday life enable us to connect with our real needs and wishes. In the simplicity of unspoilt nature, silence returns as if by itself, helps us forget everyday life and makes deep relaxation and recreation possible.
The stay in the traditional village with its simple infrastructure is possible only for members. Prior registration is indispensable.
