Animals in the farm
The kids and the adults who want to be seduced by the farm animals life can make acquaintance with ours. Some of them you can always see, like sheeps, goats, pigs and horses, others like our donkey ‘Vanni’ and our guardian gooses are often free to walk all around in our fields; some others instead, like cows, are in the stables where the men are always at work and to visit those animals you must be with one of us.
We don’t forget of course our beloved dogs: Leo (the chef’s best friend) Horatio (a chihuahua) and Spritz (a pincher) and our new tender friends, two cats: Rosy and Tigrotta! All of them love to spend a little bit of time playing with our guests!
In the pond you meet driving towards the farmhouse you can easily see white and grey herons, ducks and wild ducks living free in their favourite environment. Also hares and pheasants lives here, being this area suitable for game breeding. Some lucky ones can see families of deers living in the wood along the streams.
It’s no coincidence that a part of our property lies in the locality called ‘The Deer’.
Our summer camps have been organized for many years in cooperation with Legambiente Reggio Emilia which takes care of enrollments and didactic and leisure activities.
Our farmhouse, with its overwhelming nature, is the perfect location for the child-nature and child-animals relationship development that Legambiente wants to be the core of its educational-leisure purposes. Their formula includes experienced teachers and entertainers who help children develop their creativity, together with freedom, social armony, respect of nature, themselves and other human beings. They hit this goal through group activities like (handcrafting, art, excursions) stimulating freedom and responsibility.
The kids have fun grooming the animals, exploring the vineyards with treasure hunts, producing pieces of art, competing in sport activities, visiting our dairy, falling in love with the horses and taking care of the animals.
You can have information about Legambiente and their activity contacting them at their phone/fax number 0522/431166 from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. or online : Massimo@legambientereggioemilia.it
A hot-air ballons flight..why not? If you have never been on such an old mean of transport we suggest you to try at least once in a lifetime! The excitement of being ‘suspended’ in the air with only the wind caressing your face, while below the world keeps working is unique! Those who are used to fly on planes can be surprised too, watching the world from a different perspective. The most exciting part is the preparation of the flight together with the passengers. It’s a beautiful experience that allows you to learn how this machines work. Hot-air balloons excursions are made by Paolo Barbieri. We will get in touch with Paolo who will explain the flight details and the rates.
There are many products we eat every day and we don’t know anything about. Some of them are the fruit of old traditions carried on by generations of farmers.
Just learning about a simple product one can understand better the place where it comes from and the people who made it, the nuances that make our country so various.
We are available to lead you into the magic world of Parmigiano Reggiano of Reggio Emilia, one the Protected Origin Denomination products of our province.
Our dairy is on the farm land and the balsamic aging is in front of the farmhouse. At the end of the visit we would be glad to make you taste our products. The visits are free for our guest but we kindly ask you to tell us about when booking, in order to give a better service.
We will be also glad to plan visits for big group of people, as available, also in English if necessary.
Mtb and road bike itineraries
We are at the foot of the hills, near the town which you can reach by bike along a wide net of bike paths.
Reggio Emilia is indeed one of the first italian towns for the number and quality of its bike paths.
If one wants to go towards the hills instead, there is a wide choice of trails, depending on the skills level and the interest in the natural and historical heritages you will find along the itinerary.
We will be happy to tell you how to reach the places of your interest, providing maps and our own love for bikes!. If you also need to rent a bike please ask the reception in advance if there are any available.
Of course we mean ‘Reggiana/Emiliana cooking’, our delicious and famous local cuisine!
The lessons are delivered in our own farmhouse kitchen with all the necessary tools and the inspiring atmosphere for good food lovers!
For logistic reasons the lessons are delivered in the morning from Monday to Friday, for at least two days and more or less 3 hours a day (starting at 9.00 a.m. usually). At the end of the lessons one can enjoy the dishes made, in our comfortable restaurant and moreover with the chef!
We can also offer visits direct to the places of origin of our products, the dairy, the balsamic aging room, the stables from where our produces used during the cooking lessons come from.
Our lessons can also be done in english, for the big income of foreign ‘Emiliana cooking’ lovers!
The rates are based on the number of participants, being the best rate for groups of 4 to 8 people. If you are a very big group of people, you will be divided in two different moments.
