End your evening with dinner at the historic Naramata Inn, then walk home under a big, starry, Okanagan sky.

We came to Naramata and had a magical time. All the little details were taken care of and noted. Gayl took great care in the room and it's convenience to her guests. Thanks for a great stay!"
"We have had a lovely, relaxing stay but too brief! We enjoyed cycling on the Kettle Trail followed by a refreshing dip in the lake. Thanks for the bikes! Sorry we couldn't stay longer."
"Thanks for such a lovely and peaceful oasis to enjoy some time away from home! It is so tastefully decorated and luxurious. The books were a nice touch. Some friends recommended your place and we're glad they did. We'll be back!"
SlowFood means fresh, local, seasonal produce, recipes handed down through generations, sustainable farming, artisanal production, and leisurely dining with family and friends. The SlowFood movement believes that food should be grown and bought locally, prepared with care, and consumed with appreciation.
Born in Italy in 1989 as a not-for-profit, the SlowFood movement began as a response to the rise of fast food and a world where we can eat quickly and cheaply without ever leaving our cars. Slow Food is about more than food, it’s about lifestyle. The SlowFood philosophy embraces 'ecogastronomy,' the notion that eating well can and should go hand in hand with celebrating and protecting the environment.
A CittaSlow ("cheetah" slow) community is a global network of towns that collectively resist globalization and mainstream corporate-centred development through planning and urban design that prioritizes each town's local, unique, and historic resources. Cittaslow philosophy is built around the desire to provide a high quality of life for residents. The "slow" in Cittaslow concerns the idea of taking the time for quality. The Cittaslow movement aims to improve the quality of life in cities by slowing down the overall speed in the use of space, life, and traffic flow, thus the snail logo! Internationally, Cittaslow has helped more that 285 communities in 33 countries implement sustainable development practices creating communities that celebrate the local culture, gastronomy and environment.
In 2006 Naramata became one of only four communities in Canada to hold a CittaSlow designation! To support and promote the principles of the Cittaslow mandate, a not-for-profit society was formed known locally as the NaramataSlow Community Group. By conserving and cultivating our unique community, NaramataSlow is committed to respecting and preserving the region we cherish. By establishing awareness between local producers and consumers, we strive to create a community which values and appreciates its land, bounty and local artisans. By celebrating traditions, NaramataSlow aims to foster healthy living, community involvement, and sustainable food through inclusive community events and educational gatherings.
