Our spacious and Pet-Bike-EcoFriendly R&B, called "Tolasudolsa" (in dialect parmesan: take it easy), is located at 830 meters above sea level on the Parma Apennine.
We're immersed in nature, far from everything. The experience and the atmosphere will be very familiar with the pleasure of falling asleep in the evening, and waking up in the morning with the sounds of the forest, wild animals and the mountains. The traditional cuisine is homemade, genuine and we try to satisfy a type of tourism that is more respectful of the environment, economy and community, especially local (eco-cuisine, anti-waste, KM 0, self-production, etc.). The main entrance is divided to enter into the ground floor, where live Valeria & Giorgio the owners, and the R&B located on the first floor. Here are the 3 simples, spacious and comfortable bedrooms, a large room for breakfast and lunches and the complete bathrooms that are outside the bedrooms but immediately next to them.Some elements cannot be sanitized therefore you will hardly see them again on your holidays, at least until there’ll be a vaccine. Perhaps it misses a little 'atmosphere, but that does exclude that the rooms are comfortable and that you can not enjoy the silence and relaxation. The rooms have always been and will be even more so, simple and essential, decorative rugs and/or cushions have disappeared. During your stay you will decide whether to request a cleaning service or not, possibly to prevent other people from entering the room. DURING THE WINTER SEASON RESERVATIONS ARE ACCEPTED ONLY WITH A MINIMUM OF 48H BEFORE THE CHECK-IN AND FOR 2 NIGHTS STAY MINIMUM OR FOR 1 NIGHT BUT 2 ROOMS MINIMUM On the basement there is a bikes and motorbikes storage and a workshop that is managed by the owner. In the square in front the house there is a private free parking available for guests only, and external space for barbecues and outdoor dining. Inside of the house is no-smoking area. With Valeria & Giorgio live some beautiful cats that are free to move even outside so the presence of other pets must be agreed at the time of booking.
