With its vegetable garden, new vegetarian menu and several ecological options, Laqua Countryside is an eco-friendly resort in the heart of the Sorrento Peninsula.

How Laqua Countryside helps the Planet

Our resort in Ticciano, on the Sorrento Peninsula, is set in the childhood home of Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo. Love for the land and fresh produce were key to our eco-friendly project, which aims at safeguarding the environment.

First of all, Laqua Countryside prides itself with a private vegetable garden of more than 1,000 square meters, and which provides many of the vegetables used in the dishes on the menu. To cut down on any water waste, only rainwater is used for irrigating. Our eco-friendly resort uses a heat pump system as well as thermal insulation coat to minimize energy loss.

All materials themselves adhere to the philosophy of recycling and reuse, as they mostly come from the original building prior to the renovation. From the ground up, this is a construction project that fully embraces respect for the Planet and its resources.

What would an environmentally friendly resort be without a distinct vegetarian tasting menu? Gourmet dishes carrying the excellence of 1 Michelin star and the freshness of local produce.

The “Carpe Diem” menu at Laqua Countryside is a triumph of ingredients grown in our garden with love and care. Along with “celeriac with hazelnut and lemon”, guests can enjoy “beet bresaola with red fruit and red onion”. And you’ve got to try the “onions, vermouth and miso”, a boldly flavored main course that packs all the goodness of Nature.

A culinary experience you can also enjoy outdoors; catch a glimpse of the garden that provides the same gourmet dishes on the menu.

Gourmet Eco-Sustainability

From the garden to the kitchen with the Chef

The beauty of Laqua Countryside is a bundle of elements of unquestionable charm; Ticciano and its splendid location on the Sorrento Peninsula, the 6 rooms with a family flavor, along with being totally surrounded by unspoiled Nature. In fact, it is precisely the latter, the star of the new experience dedicated to food lovers.

It starts with a trip through our bountiful vegetable garden, where you can sense all the care devoted to its cultivation. Then continue to the kitchen, where Executive Chef Nicola Somma will prepare a delicious dish with freshly harvested ingredients, sharing with you all his secrets as a star chef. You will assist in every step of its preparation, which you can then enjoy at the end of this adventure from the garden to the kitchen.

You’ll be given a handmade apron, a symbolic participation certificate signed by Chef Cannavacciuolo, and a memento of an unforgettable morning.

Laqua by the Lake, in the heart of Pettenasco, is the perfect place if you don't quite know what to do on Lake Orta... 3 days of pure romance, adrenaline and well-being.

Our SPA on Lake Orta

day 1

One suggestion of what to do on Lake Orta in 3 days would be to include an experience in our exclusive “The Longevity Suite” SPA. Intimate and relaxing, a place where all sources of stress are gently eased out.

Start your morning with a rejuvenating cryosauna session. What’s this, you ask? Imagine … a total body treatment that lasts from 3 to 5 minutes in an electrically cooled cabin reaching temperatures between -85°C/-121F and -95°C/-139F. Its multiple benefits include more energy, better sleep and mood, and you can burn up to 600 kcal per session.

Your journey towards well-being and relaxation continues with our Holistic massages, a bit of pure full-body indulgence. And what about your skin? Want fresher and toned skin? One of our fully personalized anti-aging beauty treatments is just what you need.

What can you do on Lake Orta in 3 days if you are with the one you love? We’ve got the answer for that too! Why not add a few romantic experiences to make your stay at Laqua by the Lake even more memorable.

After a day of well-being and outer beauty, start your second day with a lavish and exclusive breakfast on the spectacular lakefront. After that, enjoy a dip on the terrace in a double Jacuzzi covered with fragrant rose petals, complete with a bottle of Champagne and a stunning view of the nature around you.

Finish the afternoon on a high note with a gourmet aperitif by the lake. Delicious finger foods, straight from our Bistrot kitchen, served in an intimate private gazebo.

An adrenaline rush on Lake Orta

day 3

And for your third day on Lake Orta, how about a bit of an adrenaline-fueled adventure? The activities you can add to your stay at Laqua by the Lake have all been designed to create spectacular and exciting memories.

Don’t miss out on our Lampuga air jetboard, an all-electric surfboard that can reach 50 km/h. Whiz around the water and savor that feeling of freedom, not just on the jetboard. Go water skiing, wakeboarding, or wake-surfing.

But if you want something without the speed, take a ride on our Stand-Up board. Want something more? Discover the area by hiking and taking an e-bike for a totally eco-friendly experience. All of these activities will give you the chance to enjoy the real “jewel” … the incredible Nature all around you that will make your experience even more remarkable and memorable.

Now that you know what's possible on Lake d'Orta in 3 days, all you have to do is just join us.



A gorgeous country estate nestled among the vineyards, an old Etruscan village
and 6 apartments detailing the story of the Olympian Gods.
Laqua Vineyard is the latest addition to our luxurious Laqua Resorts Collection,
just a few miles from Pisa in Tuscany.

A new luxury resort in Tuscany

Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo and his wife Cinzia Primatesta opened their Collection Resorts in 2021, with three ultra-elegant yet family-friendly properties. Just one year later, the fourth has been added; Laqua Vineyard in Tuscany, among the vineyards of Terricciola, a town a few miles from Pisa.

Taking a closer look, the historic country estate, home to our Resort, is located in Casanova delle Spinette, a quaint little Tuscan hamlet. The atmosphere is that of stepping back to basics, far from the hustle and bustle of city life. Vacation in Nature; immerse yourself and rediscover the freshest and most genuine products the Territory has to offer. Guests can feel right at home in one of the six apartments named after Greek gods for a mythological-hued retreat.

It is, first and foremost, a place to reconnect with yourself and the territory. It is a marriage of exquisite wines and the expertise of Antonino Cannavacciuolo's gourmet cuisine, best experienced in the Cannavacciuolo Vineyard Restaurant, located right inside the Resort.

A moment of relaxation everyone deserves, complete with a dedicated spa area. This all-encompassing Resort, just a few miles from Pisa, offers loads of pampering and opportunities to recharge where couples and families can discover a corner of Italy all over again. Each apartment is very much like home, with its own living area, private kitchen, and cozy rooms overlooking the Tuscan vineyards.

The Laqua Vineyard resort lies immersed in unspoiled Nature and portrays the most authentic and well-hidden Italy. A jewel to be discovered, just like the village of Casanova, the town of Terricciola, and Tuscany's gorgeous countryside. During the summer, you can enjoy the endless fields of lavender and sunflowers on a bike, car, or motorcycle. A spectacular display of incredible colors.

Vineyards and wineries scattered throughout the area also provide a glimpse of the region's heritage. And speaking of wineries, Laqua Vineyard's ristorante gives guests the chance to experience the exquisite wines from "La Spinetta," a local winery in Terricciola, our Tuscan luxury resort with which already has a long-standing partnership.
