At 930 m. on sea level, on the ancient via Francigena (in the Middle Ages lead pilgrims from Canterbury to Rome). 20 km from the well known medieval town CASTELL'ARQUATO, in the area of the former Dukedom of Parma and Piacenza (17 of its castles are still visitable) which has been recently twinned to the Region of the Loira Chateaux. Though this region has remained simple and genuine.
On a cross-paths among Morfasso (whose name dates back to the sentence Annibale pronounced arriving in the secluded VAL D'ARDA while crossing the Appenines with his elephants: "More facio" "I'll have a rest here"), VAL CHERO and Bettola (birth town of Cristoforo Colombo) in VAL NURE.

Lovers of wild nature, moonlight walks and silence will find it unique.
View at 360° over mountains and valleys, mostly covered with woods. Breathtaking dawns and sunsets.
All this without having to give up the amenities of the nearby villages and the comfort of a modern house.
