The Emilia Romagna region

The Valtaro region comprises two valleys with the rivers Taro and Ceno running through them. The landscape is primarily rolling hills, fields and rivers. The climate is mild and the countryside offers a wealth of sporting activities: horse-riding, fishing, trekking, walking, cycling, kayaking, skiing and swimming.

Situated between Tuscany and Liguria, the valleys are within easy reach of the Tyrrhenian coast (The Cinqueterre, Lerici, Sestri, Massa and Viareggio) and the cities of Parma, Bologna, Florence and Milan and their respective airports.

The Valtaro and Valceno Valleys are just minutes from the A15 Motorway which runs from Parma to La Spezia on the Tyrrhenian coast. At Parma, this motorway then meets the A1 Autostrada del Sole which runs along the backbone of Italy from Milan to Naples, and at La Spezia the A12 along the Tyrrhenian coast from Genova southbound.

But what really sets this part of Italy apart from the rest is its gastronomic inheritance. Nearby we have the home of the world famous Parma ham and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Borgotaro is the home of the Borgotaro Porcini mushroom.

The wonderful Appennine castles at Compiano, Bardi, Varsi and Varano Melegrani confirm the cultural heritage of this region.

Borgo val di Taro or Borgotaro is the main town in the area.


The house is centrally situated between the city of Parma (55 miles) and the Cinqueterre and the coast/beach (60 miles). 15 minutes from highway (Parma-La Spezia) A15.

Province of Parma (Emilia Romagna) .....7 miles from the border of Tuscany. 1,5 hours by car from Pisa and Bologna, less than 2 hours from Lucca and almost 2,5 hours from Florence and Sienna.

The area is known for its mushrooms, meat and parmigian cheese and "slow food".
