Our spacious and Pet-Bike-EcoFriendly R&B, called "Tolasudolsa" (in dialect parmesan: take it easy), is located at 830 meters above sea level on the Parma Apennine.
We're immersed in nature, far from everything. The experience and the atmosphere will be very familiar with the pleasure of falling asleep in the evening, and waking up in the morning with the sounds of the forest, wild animals and the mountains. The traditional cuisine is homemade, not local, genuine and we try to satisfy a type of tourism that is more respectful of the environment, economy and community, especially local (eco-cuisine, anti-waste, KM 0, self-production, etc.).
It has a main entrance but divided to enter the ground floor, where live Valeria & Giorgio the owners, and the R&B located on the first floor. Here are the 3 simples, spacious and comfortable bedrooms, a large room for breakfast and lunches and extra meals and 2 shared bathrooms.
Inside and outside of the house is no-smoking areaa. With Valeria & Giorgio live four beautiful cats that are free to move even outside so the presence of other pets must be agreed at the time of booking.
WHAT TO DO - The area and the R&B are easily accessible from the main cities of the north Italy and the location is ideal for day trips to Lunigiana in Tuscany, to Cinqueterre, Sestri Levante and/or Chiavari all in Liguria for a day at the beach) to Parma and Bologna or to the castles in the area.
