Who am I?
I’m Graziella and together with my husband Mauro, our two daughters and my parents, have given life to Agriturismo Ca'Bianca.
The farmhouse is set in the beautiful Ca'Bianca VAL DI TARO, in the Tosco Emiliano Apennines near Parma. We are 50 miles from Parma, 80 km from Cinque Terre in Liguria, and about 35 Km from the Garfagnana in Tuscany.
The estate consists of several parcels of land of various types and nature that are used for the breeding of farm horses as well as various species of poultry. There is also a large orchard where you can find apple trees , pears, peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, almonds and hazelnuts.
The carrying capacity of the farm is of 7 rooms, all of them with bathroom and TV, an environment has been equipped for guests with disabilities. Within the structure there is a toy library, a bar, a billiards room and a TV room. Outdoor you can find ping pong, bowling green and mountain biking.
In order to spend a few hours under the sun, you can enjoy the wonderful swimming pool, set among rocks and beautiful flowers and available by the guests. You will find umbrellas, deckchairs, sun beds and after the bath you can use a sun shower of last generation.
The restaurant, created by the old barn, has maintained a traditional furniture made from stone, wood and articles of peasant culture, creating a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere: the kitchen, homemade, is based on typical regional products, many of them grown and collected in our land: among the many specialties you can enjoy homemade bread, pasta fried with charcuterie, the fried salami, potato cake, Tortelli with herbs and mushrooms, wild boar, the Ganassini Pork Parmigiana , mushrooms, ricotta pudding, the Pannacream and many other specialties.
During your stay you can visit the castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza, the wonderful Baptistery and the Pinacoteca of Parma, the Museum of Maria Luigia, The Planetarium Bedonia, Park WWF OASI DEI GHIRARDI and the "Cento Laghi" park.
Besides for the fond of sport activities, there is the possibility of hiking along the nature trails marked by the CAI, along with the Mountain Bike and cycle tracks; going fishing along the rivers of the area and for the greedy ones there are interesting Culinary paths to discover ancient tastes with typical products and with visits to dairies, sausage and wineries of the area. In Autumn you can also try to look for and collect mushrooms and chestnuts that our areas have in abundance.
During Spring-time there is the awakening of the forest and the colourful flowers which fill you with joy. You can visit the various castles of the area and the beautiful "Cento Laghi" Park.
Summer in the hill allows you to stay cool, away from the annoyance of mosquitoes, to spend sometime to the swimming-pool taking plunges, and then, without much stress, to take a train to visit the 5 Terre (about 45 minutes) avoiding the problem to park your car there.
And here Autumn comes, with its wonderful colors, the many festivals and those great natural products coming from the forest: mushrooms and CHESTNUT. It is important to point out that this is the only area approved for the fungus PORCINO PGI.
