Seaside locations include the Hotel Casa Balneare in Pietra Ligure, with a beach accessible to persons with special needs; the Casa Valdese di Vallecrosia, close to the French Riviera; and the Casa Valdese Rio Marina on Elba island.
In the Tuscan hills of Reggello, amidst the green of the olive trees, Casa Cares offers facilities to organize meetings and training for large groups.
At the foot of the Alps, in Val Pellice, the Foresteria Valdese Torre Pellice proposes the discovery of the cultural identity of the Waldensian community as well as excursions on cycling and hiking paths.
All these facilities, so diversified among themselves, sustain the charitable activities of the Diaconia Valdese, which organizes social services for senior citizens, minors, migrants, refugees and persons with special needs, always taking care to respect the principle of non-discrimination based on gender, race, religion and culture.
The 8 accomodations give part of their revenue to the aforementioned charitable activities of the Diaconia Valdese, while sustaining specific projects and working on the reduction of their environmental impact.
