A family B&B in the quiet Emilian countryside between Parma and Reggio Emilia. Fluent English speaker!








We have 3 rooms: 1 double/twin ensuite room (with private shower and toilet); 1 double/twin room and 1 triple room (double bed plus single bed) with a large bathroom in common, for exclusive use of the two rooms, in a private part of the house.

All rooms are non-smoking with free Wi-Fi. All 'double' beds are slightly larger than King Size beds (Italian 'letto matrimoniale').

In the morning you will enjoy a rich continental breakfast featuring organic products from our farm and Emilian specialities (such as Parmeasan cheese, Parmeasan ham, erbazzone, home-made pies).

The house is surrounded by a beautiful Italian garden with trees, in a quiet countryside spot. Free off-street parking in our large courtyard.

Wonderful castles and courts, from the middle ages, the renaissance period and the Napoleonic era are scattered along the hills and lowlands of Parma and Reggio Emilia, artistic jewels to be discovered with our deliciously rich cuisine and our wine tradition.

You can also visit the river Po and the village of Brescello (10 minutes away) - known as the original location for the "Peppone e Don Camillo" movies, with a nice dedicated museum
A popular local museum is the Museo Cervi next to the Campegine-Terre di Canossa motorway exit, dedicated to the old rural-agricoltural world and to the history of World War
II Italian anti-fascist Resistance, in the very home of the Cervi brothers, famous local resistance fighters. Art exhibitions, musical and theatre festivals are held here, especially in the spring and summer months.
