I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
This is the spirit of the Christmas Markets in Arco which, like every year, amaze, enchant and make people dream.
The markets develop around the Collegiata, a Renaissance building with a Palladian imprint, in the evocative Piazza 3 Novembre and Piazzale Segantini, surrounded by the public gardens with ancient plants of rare beauty. On Via delle Magnolie and Viale delle Palme are housed donkeys, goats, rabbits and cows; here is also located the ancient casino, a nineteenth-century building with an iron and glass veranda, now a café that keeps the name and the charm of when it used to be a place of meeting, leisure and entertainment (the Kursaal) for the Middle-European society who used to spend the winter time in Arco.
The magic of Christmas is perceived among the stalls, the street performances, the lights, the concerts, and the spectacular fireworks (December 8th at 21.00) which will be fired from the cliff of the castle on the square below. Along Via Stranfora, a narrow street of the old village full of ancient houses with winding and cobbled streets at the foot of the Castle, you can visit the characteristic cribs.
Do not hesitate and arrange your Christmas weekend at O_Live Agriresort. If we have surprised you during the summer, we will certainly not let you down during the most magical time of the year. We are open on weekends from 30 November to 2 December, from 7 to 9 December, from 14 to 16 December and from 28 December to 6 January.
You can choose one of the eight rooms, all different from each other and each one dedicated to a product of our farm or to a home-made dish that you will find at breakfast. Breakfast, the first cuddle of the day that we reserve for our guests, served in the Casaliva breakfast room with the striking fire crackling in the majolica stove and inebriated by the characteristic scents of winter mornings such as cinnamon, cloves, chocolate, ginger or from freshly baked bread.
And if you have not thought about Christmas gifts yet, why do not take something as genuine as the products of our farm? EVO oil, olive patè, wine, honey and homemade jams, as well as a selection of useful objects made of olive wood and hand-crafted by a local craftsman.
Something different but definitely a well appreciated Christmas thought!
We are waiting for you to offer you a slice of magic!
