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, not local, 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 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.
