Park Hotel Argento
The history of the Park Hotel Argento is a story of patience.
Rina and Guido De Filippi, a family of builders from Levante, have been trying unsuccessfully for more than fifty years to build on the land on which the hotel is located. The land was abandoned for some time, although it was home to a magnificent pine forest, of which one can still admire some impressive examples. On the steep hills, the women of the village went in search of pine nuts and aromatic herbs to cook the traditional "Levanta Gattafin".
The turning point came at the end of the last millennium, when the municipality and the region issued licences for the construction of two four-star hotels as part of a project to increase the supply of high-quality tourism in Levanto.
Work began in 2003.
The aim of the project was to create a structure which re-establishes the characteristics of a Ligurian village and inserts the building into the landscape context without defacing it.
A few years after its construction, another crucial point in the history of the Park Hotel Argento was reached.
