My place is in the heart of the Italian countryside. You’ll love it because of the pristine nature and free wildlife, the amazing food and its proximity to many Italian tourist hotspots including beaches and ancient towns. It's an ideal destination for couples, families (with kids) and solo adventurers – anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful escape from the hubbub of the city.

The space

The house is located in the heart of the WWF nature reserve "Ghirardi", a 370-hectare nature reserve located in the Province of Parma, Emilia-Romagna. Ghirardi is an extraordinary natural paradise, boasting many types of free wildlife and amazing walking/hiking opportunities, both on and off marked trails. The WWF offers many guided opportunities for discovering the nature and learning about local customs, including the popular night walks. Ghirardi is also conveniently located near many wonderful tourist hotspots, including the world-famous beaches at Cinque Terre, the historic city of Parma and culturally as well as gastronomically significant towns such as Lucca, Bologna and Pisa.

Interaction with guests

You can enjoy full privacy during your stay, but in case you require anything, the family of groundskeepers lives nearby and will be able to assist you.

Other things to note

Outside, there are two stone ovens, available for cooking pizza, bread and others in the classic Italian style.

Guests will find basic ingredients in the house in order to prepare a simple dinner (pasta, tomato sauce, oil, salt) and breakfast (tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, jam) upon their arrival. Most of the shops are open from 8.30-12.30/13.00 and from 16.00-19.30; they are closed on Thursday afternoons. Two supermarkets (Carrefour, Piazza Farnese, Borgotaro and In's, Via A. De Gasperi, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Albareto) open all day round from Monday to Saturday and on Sunday mornings.

Guests are kindly asked to check-in by 16.00:19.00. If necessary, a later check-in can be arranged (please make sure to notify us by message in advance), but we would ask for a fee of €15 for every additional hour in order to cover the overtime for the person who will meet you with the keys. The fee can be paid upon arrival

If you want to see another side if Italy, one not travelled by thousands of tourists and that offers the natural beauty of this region, this is the place for you. Consider it like camping but in a very comfortable house. Everything you need is there, including dishwasher, modern kitchen, etc. There you can hike into well identified trails and meet wild animals. A pleasure for nature lovers. If you have the chance to be offered pizza, DO NOT skip it!! We had some of the best pizza in Italy cooked right there in the outside stone oven. We would certainly return, and recommend it to our friends. One thing to know is that if you use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, make sure you stop using it once you arrive in Bertorella, as (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps may send you to the incorrect location. Follow the host's instructions, they are easy to follow and exactly on point.

This is a truly beautiful place in the middle of nature! The house is amazing, it is how one pictures an old Italian house in the countryside: old wooden beams, white walls, lovely furniture. From the windows there is a beautiful view over the valley. In the evening we sat in the garden and watched the dusk settle, the bats came out and we saw so many stars (there is no "light pollution'). It was amazing and we were really sorry to leave!

Response from Danielle:
I'm particularly happy you liked the place although you had to leave earlier than foreseen. I hope to host you again sometime.

If you want a peaceful, secluded holiday, this is an amazing spot. The house is lovely, very well appointed, and the open space around it is great for breakfast and dinner al fresco, and relaxing, reading etc.

My wife and I had a wonderful wonderful time at Il Glicine on our honeymoon. It's a beautiful house with a great kitchen and an even more stunning location than the photos prepared us for. Thank you so much!
