  • Description


    We are a family composed of me, my wife, our little daughter, our 7 dogs, a cat, an horse and a donkey.
    We have a Farmhouse and Dog Training Center with accomodation, we accomodate to tourists that are searching for a pet friendly farmhouse, and at the same time we also acccomodate to people that work with dogs.
    We do professional dog training, agility dog training, obedience, retreiver dog training, dog education, dog's behavioral recoveries as well as other types of training.

    We provide lunch and dinner and italian breakfast (Coffee, milk and toast).
    We are not vegan/vegetarian and we all eat together as a family and eat home cooked traditional italian food.
    We have nothing again vegetarians, but we have too many things to do and not enough time to do all, we have only one kitchen and for us is too complex manage different diets.

    The room is large with a private bathroom, so we prefer couple accounts or friends that could share a room. We prefer long term stays but enquire for short term stays that we might be able to fit between long term stays.

    During this winter we will do some hard work to reorganize the farmhouse, so we will not do dog training and we will not open to the public.

    For whom who haven't feedback, before to give confirmation we need to have a reference from the last hoster or employer. In that case we need name, e-mail or phone number of the last hoster or of the last employer.

    In the last periods we received a lot of requests from people searching to do request for italian citizenship.
    Unfortunately we had in the past a bad experience with one of them, it's a long story, too complex to explain writeing, but anyway from that moment we decided to never give in the future the "cessione di fabbricato" (that is the document that is necessary for the request of citizenship).
