Dozza and the Valley
From the farm it is a short walk up to the village of Dozza where you can find a friendly café and osteria plus four great restaurants serving typical local dishes. There is also a medieval castle with many rooms open to visitors, breathtaking views from the towers and an atmospheric cellar housing the regional wine association, with hundreds of local wines to taste and buy
Nearby is the hilltop town of Dozza, within walking distance of the farm, where you visit a castle and marvel at all the colourful murals decorating the town walls!- Adrianne Picciano, 26, USA
You will wake up to the sounds of the Dozza church bells and the roosters crowing, and all of it fits in with the surroundings- Theresa Koorey, 26, New Zealand
Every two years since the mid 1960s the village has held a mural painting festival during which invited artists add their work to the walls of the houses lining the two main streets. The result is a unique and stunning open-air art gallery with a huge variety of different painting styles and subjects.
The Valsellustra Valley
This picturesque green valley is particularly popular with cyclists and also leads to various walking routes. There are two highly recommended restaurants and a bruschetteria on or near the road that winds along close the Sellustra stream at the bottom of the valley.
This area formed part of the 'Gothic line' during the winter of 1944-45 and amongst the characteristic folds of the hills at the top of the valley there is still evidence of the battles that took place between the Allied and German forces.
