My place is in the heart of the Italian countryside. You’ll love it because of the pristine nature and free wildlife, the amazing food and its proximity to many Italian tourist hotspots including beaches and ancient towns. It's an ideal destination for couples, families (with kids) and solo adventurers – anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful escape from the hubbub of the city.

The house is located in the heart of the WWF nature reserve "Ghirardi", a 370-hectare nature reserve located in the Province of Parma, Emilia-Romagna. Ghirardi is an extraordinary natural paradise, boasting many types of free wildlife and amazing walking/hiking opportunities, both on and off marked trails. The WWF offers many guided opportunities for discovering the nature and learning about local customs, including the popular night walks. Ghirardi is also conveniently located near many wonderful tourist hotspots, including the world-famous beaches at Cinque Terre, the historic city of Parma and culturally as well as gastronomically significant towns such as Lucca, Bologna and Pisa.
You can enjoy full privacy during your stay, but in case you require anything, the family of groundskeepers lives nearby and will be able to assist you.
Outside, there are two stone ovens, available for cooking pizza, bread and others in the classic Italian style.
Guests will find basic ingredients in the house in order to prepare a simple dinner (pasta, tomato sauce, oil, salt) and breakfast (tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, jam) upon their arrival. Most of the shops are open from 8.30-12.30/13.00 and from 16.00-19.30; they are closed on Thursday afternoons. Two supermarkets (Carrefour, Piazza Farnese, Borgotaro and In's, Via A. De Gasperi, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Albareto) open all day round from Monday to Saturday and on Sunday mornings.
Guests are kindly asked to check-in by 16.00:19.00. If necessary, a later check-in can be arranged (please make sure to notify us by message in advance), but we would ask for a fee of €15 for every additional hour in order to cover the overtime for the person who will meet you with the keys. The fee can be paid upon arrival
