For nature lovers

To guarantee the safety of ourselves and our guests we decided to close for the entire year of 2020. We still have to figure out how to change our way of working according to the upcoming social-distancing standards.

B&B La Fossa is is located in the province of Reggio Emilia, in the Apennines and located inside a protected naturalistic area and has beautiful panoramic views over a valley covered by woods.

Our guests


Our guests generally love some days of complete relaxation, immersed in the slow rhythm of our little oasis in the woods. Walks in the valley can lead them to seasonal natural peculiarities. Lovers of good food are pleasantly surprised by the excellent restaurants at walking distance with traditional and family-run cuisine. Guests who like culture and history find at short distance the Castles of the times of Matilde of Canossa, the cities Parma, Reggio Emilia and in Castelnovo ne’Monti there is a impressive mountain called Pietra di Bismantova. On hot summer days our guests also enjoy swiming in the river Enza.

The houses of B&B La Fossa

La Fossa is a group of three antique Italian farmhouses. We offer Bed & Breakfast facilities in two of these farmhouses that we restored while preserving their authentic style.
