The agriturismo

The agriturismo is located in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, in a region which is one of Italy's major producers of PGI porcini mushrooms.
The farm is split into several sections of land, used to cultivate fruit and vegetables, and also breeds riding horses. The agriturismo is 50 km from Parma, 80 km from the Cinque Terre in Liguria and around 35 km from the Garfagnana in Tuscany.

The accommodation

The farm comprises several sections of land, of various types and nature; the arable land is used to grow fodder and cereals, used to feed the farm’s herd of riding horses and the various barnyard animals.
There is also a large orchard where you’ll find apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, almonds, hazelnuts, figs and persimmons, and deliciously succulent chestnuts can be gathered in the farm’s extensive woodland.

The agriturismo offers guest accommodation in seven fully independent rooms, one of which is equipped for disabled guests, and all with their own bathroom and TV. The complex also includes a games area, a billiards room and a TV room.

Boarding for guests to bring their own horses is also available in the stables.

The swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas is also open during the summer months.

 

And last, but certainly not least, the cuisine: the restaurant, built inside the old stables, offers a typical space with stone, wood and items from rural life, creating a serene, cosy setting.

The predominantly homemade cuisine is prepared using typical regional produce, much of which is grown and gathered on the farm itself. Specialities include homemade bread, pasta fried with the farm's own cured meats, fried cured meats, potato flan, mushroom and herb tortelli, wild boar, pork cheek in parmesan, mushrooms, ricotta pudding, “pannacream” and a host of other delicacies.

Activities and surrounding

The farm is located in Ostia Parmense in the Province of Parma, around 400 metres above sea level and just 5 km from the regional capital Valtaro (Borgotaro) on the banks of the Taro River, where it crosses the Cogena creek: a region which is one of Italy’s major porcini mushroom producers, recognised on a European level, a certified PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) Mushroom Zone.

The Taro Valley stands in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines between Parma, famous city of art, and La Spezia in Liguria.

Nearby you'll find the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza (Bardi, Compiano, Fontanellato…) , the stunning Baptistery and the Parma Art Gallery, the Maria Luigia Museum, the Bedonia Planetarium, the “Oasi dei Ghirardi” WWF park, the Cento Laghi Park and the Filiberti company who specialise in working with Carniglia Stone.

For those who love outdoor sports, the region is home to a wealth of signposted CAI pathways (Club Alpino Italiano, Italian Alpine Club), with links to the “Grande Escursione Appenninica” trail. Guests can also explore the “Ippovia dell'Appennino Parmense” bridleway and the Via Francigena on foot or on horseback, or why not enjoy a spot of fishing in one of the local rivers or lakes?

There are also wonderful food and wine trails to discover ancient flavours and typical local produce, with tours of dairies, cured meat producers and wine cellars.

In autumn guests can gather porcini mushrooms and chestnuts.

    "Nice property but too expensive"

    10/03/2017

    We were two days in the post-season here and were very surprised how much money you can spend for so little consideration. The area is very generous, the rooms clean and if you like dogs you are right here. The mattresses were very hard and there is also a small tv in the room. The Internet only works temporarily with limited data volume. The table football costs 50 cents per game. Table tennis is free. It is urgently from half board discouraged and the distant handling of the hosts disturbed us.

    I am literally excited by this review as despite the fact that the reservation was made the day before and upon arrival we managed to handle a VEGANO guest without being warned before we did anyway to try to serve a proper dinner, the first night everything based on Porcini IGP Borgotaro Mushrooms, the second night we even had two different menus, one vegan and the second menu with Parma Crudo, Herb Tortelli, Culatello Starcotto at Lambrusco and sweet. Room television is standard like in almost all the farmhouses (definitely not a mega screen) but I honestly do not think it's the reason a person chooses to go to a farm. We have always tried to support all of their requests to make them feel at ease but unfortunately we noticed that all this was not worth anything even if the check out at the request of how it went their stay there was answered "All very well "with hugs included, if all this is compromised by the fact that he was not allowed to download movies with the WI-FI connection then .... we deserve this review.
