Bed & Breakfast & Guest House in the hills of Piacenza

Who we are

Do not forget to entertain strangers; thereby some have entertained angels unaware.

Laura’s B&B was born out of her love for hosting guests and her desire to share the beauty and nature of Val Tidone and the hills of Piacenza  with guests full-time. The B&B was the former home of the Rossi family and is located in the hills of Piacenza, surrounded by greenery, a large family vegetable garden, fruit trees and a small grove of walnut trees. Laura and Mom have given new life to the house taking care of every detail to make guests feel in an environment of total relaxation and well-being, whether it be in Valtidone for work, holiday or leisure. From the hill you can admire the Castelnovo Val Tidone Castle. The three large rooms are all located on one level, are comfortably furnished with family pieces and each has its own particular character.
Laura’s homemade breakfast buffet is served in a very bright cozy room with views of the garden. Season and weather permitting, you can have breakfast outside on the large covered terrace, lulled by birds singing and the scent of wild flowers. For breakfast we use just fresh local products such as yogurt, honey and freshly baked bread, fragrant pies and local tarts, using secret family recipes . A salted breakfast could also be provided. Laura will be available for every need and can provide information on tourism opportunities in the area. There is also a small library with books available to guests about Piacenza’s traditions , history and cooking books as well as  guides to the monuments and local amenities.
