Let me introduce myself:
I’m Graziella and together with my husband Mauro and our two children and my parents, we’ve created Ca’Bianca Agritourism.
Now, if you read on, I’ll bore you with some chat…just let me get on with it because I really want to and am proud of what we’ve all made together.
Our farm is situated in the area of Ostia Parmense at about 400 m above sea level and only 5 km from Valtaro’s main town, Borgotaro. We are on the left of the River Taro where it meets with the Cogena Torrent, one of the best areas for gathering porcini mushrooms and recognised at European level (registered mushroom zone IGP i.e. protected geographical area).
The farm consists of various plots of different types of land with different characteristics. We grow fodder and cereals on our cultivated land, which we then use to feed our saddle horses as well as a variety of farmyard animals. The wheat and maize crops are used to make bread and polenta. We also have many friends who raise all kinds of produce: when our own runs out, we use theirs as our larder.
There is also a large orchard with apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, almonds, hazelnuts, figs and persimmons. Chestnuts of excellent quality can be gathered in the many woods belonging to the farm.
Our Agritourism farm has seven completely independent rooms available, each with its own bathroom. One room has facilities for the disabled and there is TV in every room. An equipped games room is available as well as a billiard room, another with satellite TV and a well-stocked library. You won’t be needing any of these though because exploring the Valtaro countryside won’t leave you time. You can go horse riding or walking in the magnificent woods, take trips on mountain-bikes or go canoeing or fishing in the rivers or the many lakes in the area.
For mountain “professionals” or open-air sports people, there are a vast number of signposted CAI ramblers’ tracks that are linked to the “Great Apennine Hikes”. You can also follow the tracks of the Parma Apennines’ Equestrian Way and the Francigena Way, obviously accompanied by Mauro (official ANTE guide for the National Association of Equestrian Tourism).
Last but not least, the food. Everything is based on typical local products, many of which are grown and gathered on the farm itself. We have studied in depth the history and methods for preparing the many unique dishes of excellent quality that this rich land has to offer.

Biological Farm – Bed & Breakfast “Il Leccio”
Angelo and Simona are pleased to welcome you in their farm.
After we moved here from Milan, we decided to turn into reality everything we have always believed in: the biological agriculture for a healthy eating, the protection of nature and biodiversity, a slower life style (even though as hard as any other ones) which makes us fully enjoy breathtaking landscapes and wild animals coming out from the pinewood.
The enchantment of being awaken from the chirp of titmice, of cultivating and seeing the fruit which grows, the emotion of watching the sky with so many stars that it seems that are about to fall down.
All this, and more over is what we want to share with you.
We are waiting for you!
In our B&B your four-footed friends are welcome

Il Goreto is a small rural complex whose block of houses, some of them still intact, surround a small paved yard with a fountain which was originally for the stables.
This area is on the side of the Corona hill, a thick chestnut wood renowned for the mushroom picking.
The main house is near a hill where ancient fruit trees and wonderful linden trees grow.
The fact that it is quite difficult to reach this small area contributes to make it very quiet. Those people who love to be in contact with nature in all its freedom can make brief excursions to the near alta via dei monti liguri promoted by the municipality of Varese Ligure. Here it is possible to enjoy a wonderful landscape: grasslands, beech woods and ancient farms which cultivate biological products.
Back to the agritourism, guests can taste a high quality typical cuisine based on home made products like honey, jams, conserves, spirits and of course everything that grows in our gardens like vegetables, mushrooms and aromatic herbs.
The house was built in 1909 as the door inscription indicates and it is surrounded by a yard closed by an art nouveau balustrade which faces the fruit trees. The interiors are large with two homely dining rooms which are warmed by the wood stove. The furnishing of the rooms, which are all on the first floor, is conceived in order to make them cosy and comfortable.
