Il Casale di Monte Venere

  • Bed & Breakfast
Via Gombio 24 - Monte Venere - 42035 Castelnovo ne' Monti - Reggio Emilia - Italy

An ancient stone farmhouse nestled in the woods of the Emilian Apennines has recently been completely restored (respecting the original materials and structure) to offer its guests the maximum comfort in contact with nature.

Il Casale di Monte Venere is an ancient stone farmhouse, set between the woods and clearings of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, between Canossa and the National Park, in the heart of the MAB-UNESCO area.
The building was recently renovated according to the most advanced criteria of bio-architecture and energy efficiency, while maintaining the charm of stone and wood intact thanks to the wise recovery of the original materials.
The house is regularly inhabited by the owners, who have reserved a part of the building for hospitality with three large double bedrooms (all with private bathroom in the room, two with shower and one with bathtub) and a scenic former barn converted into a living room with a sofa , fireplace and table for breakfast. Breakfast is mainly based on organic products and / or Km 0.
The property is located in the center of Val Tassobbio, an Apennine valley rich in naturalistic, geological, historical and archaeological points of interest. CAI hiking trails literally start from the gates of the farmhouse and offer mountain bikers an almost endless series of trails. For gourmets, this area is the area where the best Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is produced: guided visits (by reservation) to artisanal dairies can be made and the finished and seasoned product can be tasted at "zero meters".
From the farmhouse in less than an hour's drive you can reach some of the most interesting cities of art: Parma (Italian capital of Culture 2020), Reggio Emilia and Modena; even closer are the Matildic castles of Canossa, Rossena, Bianello and Carpineti, the Pietra di Bismantova and the peaks of the Apennine ridge.
