Guests will be invited to help themselves to any in season vegetables from the garden and fresh eggs will also be available. A selection of fresh herbs will also be growing near the BBQ area. We are situated 1.5 hours from both Parma and Bologna airports. So our guests won't need to go shopping on the day of arrival we offer a complimentary welcome basket,(for weekly rentals) with wine, milk, bread, pasta, sauce, tea, coffee and a number of Italian treats. Alternatively they can choose to have a 3 course meal cooked on site with wine for 25 euros per head. This is 'glamour camping' It is rural, we live with nature, there will be wildlife, birds, bugs, cats, chickens and dogs. if you have allergies, fears or dislikes to any of the above please take this into consideration when choosing this kind of holiday.More
