There was plenty of shaded seating - including a separate area for those needing a bit of peace - and a wonderful long table so that we could all eat outside. The kitchen was unusually well equipped for a holiday rental and there was plenty of crockery and cutlery for our large party. The well-maintained pool was the perfect temperature for the hot weather (swimming towels provided) and the table tennis table got a good deal of use! There are a lot of very good restaurants within a short drive, and several supermarkets a 10 minute drive away, in Fidenza. The owners are very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful - we will definitely be back!

The house is comfortable and offers a chance to get away from it all, with the only noises being crickets and grasshoppers. The location is lovely, perched on top of some hills, with lovely views all around. The nearby hosts, Giacomo and Liliana, were fantastic, giving a gracious welcome to Italy, being very attentive to providing help and recommendations, without encroaching on privacy. It is the first time that I, personally, can say that upon leaving I missed the hosts. Thank you Giacomo and Liliana, two wonderful people, and thank you for the cake too.
