On the slopes of Mount Ventasso is the Balla coi Lupi Ranch, nestled in the green of the mountain at an altitude of 1,200 meters.
The Ranch counts with riding stables, bar and restaurant, rooms, playground and large green spaces; this allows us to be able to offer various services, both to spend an entire day without ever being bored and to experience magnificent vacations.
At the riding school you can take walks along trails surrounded by beautiful beech trees, lessons in the field and lessons with ponies for the little ones.
In a warm western-themed mountain setting, in front of the fireplace, we offer typical Emilian cuisine, rediscovering grandmother's recipes with fresh pastas, cappelletti and homemade tortelli.
We use products from the undergrowth at km 0 such as mushrooms, truffles and other seasonal products, the beef and mutton we use come from pastures close to us, and game is not to be missed.
In the beautiful setting of the Ranch we have numerous outdoor tables to enjoy lunch or snack with fried dumplings and cold cuts in the shade of the beech trees.
We light barbecues by reservation and have areas equipped with grills for rent.
We organize parties and ceremonies with menus tailored to every need.
Throughout the year we organize theme dinners, favorite ones being the fish menu and tortellate.
The rooms are located in a structure outside the restaurant, surrounded by peace and greenery, from whose veranda you can admire the starry sky and the unique peace of the Ranch.
Our rooms are themed: cowboy, wolf, king of the woods ....
Each room consists of two rooms and a bathroom, spacious and cozy to accommodate either a couple or families and groups.
Among the services offered for those who enjoy a vacation at the Ranch we have discounted packages for horseback riding lessons and rides, playground for children, Nordic wolking rackets, volleyball court and rackets, and also agreements with tourist facilities near us.
Our facility, immersed in the greenery and silence of the mountains, far from the road, proves to be ideal for spending a relaxing vacation, but also full of adventures and outdoor activities.
In fact, in addition to horseback riding we can organize, together with other facilities close to us, excursions with e-bikes, fishing, canyoning.
Our Ranch is located in a strategic point of our Apennines, in the cradle of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and just a stone's throw from the Prosciutto di Parma factories.
We are in the heart of the Appennino Tosco Emiliano National Park, close to the Parco dei Cento Laghi and in the middle between Garfagnana and Lunigiana; we are an hour from the Cinque Terre Park.
For all these reasons, our area gives us the opportunity to organize splendid tours to enrich your vacation.
We offer food and wine tours and visits to numerous sites of tourist, naturalistic and cultural interest offered by our territory; we can boast of destinations such as the Cork Museum in Cervarezza Terme, Mount Ventasso, the boundless pastures and the magnificent panorama of Valbona, the Bismantova stone with its hermitage, the adventure park, many small ancient villages that have made the history of our territory, and much more.
