Our Team

Welcome to the Freeride Outdoor Village team page! We are a group of twelve passionate about nature and outdoor sports, each with a unique story.

Our Beliefs!

A haven of warmth and welcome in the heart of Finale Ligure

At Freeride Outdoor Village, our main goal is to ensure a genuine and attentive welcome, creating an authentic and empathetic experience that meets the needs of each guest. We want every moment with us to feel like home, ensuring an unforgettable vacation in beautiful Finale Ligure.

At Freeride Outdoor Village, we strongly believe in welcoming and mutual respect.

Our vision is to build a community of outdoor enthusiasts who value and explore the natural and cultural beauty of our area. We want our village to become a model of authentic hospitality, where every interaction is an opportunity for exchange and personal enrichment. We dream of expanding this concept, creating a network of Outdoor Villages in Italy and Europe, characterized by a family atmosphere and a warm welcome, where everyone can feel serene and at ease.
