Relax and Nature in this wooden chalet surrounded by an immense forest, a stone's throw from Castell'Arquato, in the beautiful setting of the Piacentini Hills.
An ideal destination for those who want to escape the bustle of the city, the house is an hour's drive from Milan and 40 minutes from Piacenza.
The Chalet in the Forest is perfect for a romantic getaway as a couple or for a family stay, to enjoy the benefits that nature offers, in a unique and evocative location, surrounded by a wonderful olive grove.

The space
The harmony with which the chalet is inserted in the surrounding nature transmits a sense of peace and serenity that immediately conquers the guest who stays there.
At guests' complete disposal, the villa is beautifully furnished in an original, romantic and elegant style and has all the comforts (Wi-Fi included) and offers two bedrooms. The small porch with a vintage rocking chair, reminiscent of the typical farm houses of old American movies, is a unique gem that makes the house even more welcoming. A magical place to stop to read a book or enjoy the view of the park surrounding the house.
Century-old olive trees, chestnut groves, lavender blossom and a small orchard are just a few of the elements that characterize this immense park.
Silence, broken only by the singing of cicadas in summer, pure air and tranquility are the basic ingredients to which you can add at will sport and movement (walks, jogging or cycling), culture and local gastronomy. But not only that, the Forest Chalet offers guests a swimming pool and solarium area and a bowling alley in the summer

Where you’ll be

Castell'Arquato, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

Castell'Arquato, located halfway between Piacenza and Parma, is an art village of rare beauty infused with ancient atmospheres. It has low brick terraced houses and narrow cobblestone alleys that lead to the top of the hill, where the large monumental square overlooking the Arda Valley opens, which fades on one side towards Via Emilia and Padania, on the other towards the hills of Vernasca (and the Apennines), with the jewel-like village of Vigoleno.

After wandering through the narrow alleys of Castell'Arquato, you should visit the hamlet of Vigolo Marchese to admire the splendid Romanesque complex with the church and baptistery of San Giovanni, built in 1008 by the Marquis Oberto d 'Orta, lord of Val Nure. The projecting shapes of the circular baptistery, the golden colour of the bricks and stones in the quiet of the countryside, are pure visual poetry.

Val d 'Arda is the eastern valley of the province of Piacenza that reaches the borders of the Parma Apennines. In the upper part it is covered with woods, descending in altitude you will find the fine vineyards.
Those who love nature excursions can visit the Piacenziano Reserve, Terme di Bacedasco and Bosco di Santa Franca.
For cyclists, we recommend the Reserva del Piacenziano - Lugagnano itinerary and the village of Gropparello, returning from Val Chiavenna.

Things to see in the surroundings:
Piacenza - Emiliana but also a little Lombard, road and railway node on the right bank of the Po, preserves a beautiful historic center with considerable monuments - the Municipal Palace (the Gothic), the Cathedral - and a stately urban layout. It was co-capital of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza.
Vigoleno — It is a charming walled village, with a castle from the 12th century, of medieval appearance; it stands on a spur between the valley of Ongina and that of Stirone and is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Velleia— City first Ligurian and then Roman, has left us important remains of the forum, which came to light thanks to occasional discoveries that then gave rise to eighteenth-century archaeological excavations.
Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza - Disseminated on the Apennines of Parma and Piacenza, but also present in the plain to guard the natural border of the Po, the numerous castles of the ancient Duchy of Parma and Piacenza characterize the entire area. Military bastions originally, many of them have maintained the appearance of inaccessible fortress, many have gradually transformed their war nature into a refined noble residence; all perpetuate over time the atmosphere of adventure, fairy tale and legend that has always been linked to castles, in many of which it is told of the presence of spirits and ghosts
