Land & setting
  • We stayed 2 nights with Stefano and Natasha and were welcomed like members of their family. Their house and grounds are a real haven of peace (which you have to earn, as the climb up is durissima!!!) and they are both wonderful people who love to pass on their knowledge and culture.
    On the practical side, there's a small room reserved for campers to take shelter in, as well as a dedicated bathroom with all the necessities.
    We'll be sure to come back and visit them again when we have the chance.
    Many thanks again - GRAZIE!

  • Great experience with Stefano and Natascia! They were so kind to us. The setting is beautiful, right in the middle of nature, and the rooms available are clean and meet the main needs.
    We're already planning to come back,
    Many thanks to them and see you soon.

  • We fell in love with the place during our road trip! Natasha, Stefano and Balu welcomed us in the most beautiful way... caring people, sharing and simple. We found our happiness on their little hill, with a breathtaking view and all the comforts we needed. Natasha and Stefano grow their own tomatoes, herbs and make their own milk - what a delight! Our hosts were very attentive and their kindness really touched us. We shared a moment chatting about our trip and their life on the farm, a very nice souvenir of our trip. Thank you Natasha, Stefano and Balu for this magical interlude, we already want to come back!

  • We only spent one night with Stefano and Natasha, but we stayed the whole day afterwards, and it was so hard to leave....
    Their generosity is infinite, a sharing of experience and life without equal. You don't think about anything, you just enjoy the moment. Everything is soft and calm, and their animals are sweethearts. I couldn't stop smiling.
    We can't wait to come back, because yes, we will!
    Thanks again for everything....

  • It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to stay with Natascia, Stefano and Balu. They are incredible people who have created our best memories of Italy. They will be happy to give you tips on what to do and see in the area.
    Their garden offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

    By far our best homestay experience.
    If we ever come back to Italy, we'll definitely make a detour!

    Thanks for the welcome, the shared meal, the coffees, the tarts, the advice, the hospitality ... and of course for the memories!

  • Natasha and Stefano are wonderful hosts, kind, funny and genuine! Natasha's cooking is marvellous, and we enjoyed Stefano's panacotta and ricotta. They offered us fresh, homemade products made from quality ingredients, all in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The site is splendid. We also slept very well. We have very fond memories of the place and will be delighted to return! And maybe we'll be able to taste the verbena liqueur...

  • Stefano and Natascia made us fall in love with Italy! They welcomed us like friends in a corner of paradise. From chatting about everything to advice on the best ice cream parlour and the history of parmigiano, they gave us our best moments in Italy. We wish them all the best and hope to come back again!
    Thanks for everything!

  • This place is beautiful, and the people (Stéphano, Natacha, not forgetting the little cat Mignola and the horse Lampo) are extraordinary. A great and inspiring home camping experience that we'll be repeating as soon as possible!

  • The best stay of the whole vacation. I felt like a homecoming. This is a place I will revisit. Natasha and Stefano are the kindest. And Lampo the horse and their beautiful dog, Balu as well!

  • Extraordinary welcome!!! The warmth of this couple can put even the shyest of us at ease.
    We were enchanted by their sense of hospitality.
    My family and I had the experience of "speaking foreign", personally, I'm very bad at languages, but for the 1st time, I understood and made myself understood in a language that combined English and Spanish in the same sentence.
    You'll have the chance to eat at their table (the evening ended with singing accompanied by the guitar).
    The grounds were vast and panoramic.
    In short, we were delighted with our stay and we RECOMMEND IT.

  • My stay with Stefano went very well. The hosts were lovely, and Stefano even picked me up (with my bike) on the way up to their house. Hats off to anyone who makes it all the way without getting out of the saddle!

  • When we arrived at Natacha and Stefano's (and Balu) house, we were expecting a warm welcome, given the various comments. It was far beyond our expectations!
    The location is superb, with a magnificent view over the valley from the garden where we were staying. And the amenities are very convenient with enough privacy.
    We highly recommend the meal prepared with love and generosity (for a modest sum). It was succulent and we had an incredible time sharing with our hosts and other homecampers.
    Finally, a big thank you to Natacha and Stefano who welcomed us with open arms like lifelong friends (despite the language barrier). The couple are unbelievably kind, told us lots of anecdotes about the region, had lots of laughs and shared a great time.
    We'll always remember this experience, even though we only stayed one night.
    Arrivederci amigos !!!

  • It was super nice to stay with Stefano! They were super welcoming and view is just amazing, I had a great time just sitting in the garden and enjoy the nature.

  • I am moved by this meeting with Stephen and Natasha, simple and direct, like meeting friends you didn't know you had yet. They live where it is good to be. With them, you feel welcome. Everything is beautiful. Their hearts like the rest. or the other way around. Thank you for everything! Milene

  • A magnificent view, a very warm welcome from Stéfano and his wife, with great stories and immense kindness.

  • Everything was perfect for this first Home Camper experience.
    Warm welcome. Beautiful site for nature lovers. Natascia prepared an excellent meal with vegetables from the garden and local produce, which we shared followed by a digestive walk. Morning coffee and a small plum tart. And finally, a visit to a Parmigiano Reggiano cheese factory on the day of departure.
    Stefano and Natacha are wonderful hosts.
    If I'm ever in the area again, I'll definitely stop by.

  • Everything was perfect at Stefano's: the magnificent garden, with its view of the mountains, the delicious farm produce and, above all, the warm welcome! Many thanks again!

  • Magnificent views over the valley and an excellent welcome from our hosts! An unforgettable place.

  • We had an extraordinary stay with Stefano. The welcome was great. The view was incredible and there was no shortage of towns, villages and walks around.
    Thanks again for everything.

  • A very pleasant stay with Stefano and Natasha, who welcomed us to their superb farmhouse with great hospitality. Practical facilities and very pleasant surroundings, a beautiful view, and swimming in the river to refresh from the day's adventures! I recommend and we'd be delighted to come back!

  • When we arrived at "Stefano, Natascia e Balu", we had no idea that our stay with them would be so fantastic. Meeting together in the morning, their good mood, their tips (thanks to them we already know what a miracle Parmigiano Reggiano production is!), their animals, the view of the countryside. Their friendship. We stay in touch, hope to see you soon.

  • If you have to stop off near Parma, then don't hesitate for a second: go to Stefano and Natasha's! The place is magnificent: the view, the nature, the flowers, the calm, the animals, .... it's a restful and beautiful place!
    Stefano and Natasha are such friendly hosts, you feel right at home!
    We'll be back for sure!
    100000 thanks

  • Buenissimo, la dolce vita with Stefano, Natasha & Balu. There is no word to explain how well we were welcomed and hosted like friends, like family.
    Part of our hearts will ever stay in Pagano.
    Hasta pronto, amigo !

  • A very warm welcome! A very nice meeting !!!!!!
    Perfect place. The feeling of seeing again friends that we have not seen for a long time. It emanates from this couple love and generosity. We loved our stay in their house.
    Thank you thank you thank you! ????
    A very big kiss from both of us!

  • Absolutely warm, welcoming, friendly and best home camper experience ever. The place is beautiful and Natasha and Stefano are wonderfull people. Loved it!

  • An exceptional welcome and kindness in all respects from Stephano and Natacha: visit of the place, discovery of the local flora, prosseco in the sunset and coffee / cake house in the morning!
    Their house is charming and the view is incredible! Not to be missed!

  • When we arrived at Natascia & Stefano's we immediately decided that we wanted to stay a second night. The setting is beautiful and the pictures could never do it justice. This is without mentioning the incredible welcome that Natascia and Stefano gave us. They are of an immense kindness, and welcomed us with open arms. The location makes it easy to go hiking or biking. It is very quiet, surrounded by various fauna and flora that allow you to fully recharge your batteries. We could even enjoy a great typical dinner at their side, for a more than reasonable price. Stefano, Natascia, grazie tantissimo per tutto, siete meravigliosi. Grazie per gli consigli benissimi, e la visita del cooperativa du parmiganio REGIANO !!!!!!!!!!! We will come back for sure!

  • We received a great welcome from Stefano and Natacha, the setting is beautiful with authentic buildings and a breathtaking view. We managed to communicate well in English as we unfortunately do not speak Italian. They are charming and genuine people. You will definitely have a great stay with them. We recommend them 100%. Thank you for this moment ????. Grazie mille !

  • Our best stop in Italy! As soon as we arrived Natascia and Stefano welcomed us as if we were family. We only stayed for one night but it was enough to get to know them. A beautiful place with a splendid view. Thanks again for the sparkling red wine and the fried peppers. Fantastico!

  • Excellent!

  • Perfect stay thanks to Anastasia and Stephano! Great communication. Absolutely beautiful place. Extraordinary view. But the most extraordinary is Stephano and Anastasia. Great welcome. Incredible! With the small care with us. I highly recommend. We spent a genialissimo time!!! Grazie miles Stephano and Anastasia ❤️❤️❤️

  • I don't know where to start compliments...! Stefano and Natacha are generous, welcoming, helpful, caring, humble people... And I go on! Everything was perfect. Whether it is the locations, the communication (even without speaking Italian it was easy and pleasant to talk with them, or even to keep silent!) ), or the services, everything was great. I traveled alone with my dog and, thanks to them, I felt at home in a country I didn't know. Thank you very much and good continuation, for the pleasure of all ;)
    It always raises the morale to discover more beautiful people.

  • Very short but wonderful stay at Stefano and Natacha’s????
    Thanks a lot for everything ! Your welcome, hosting (Stefano even lent us his tent which has been around the world!), campsite, cooking, kindness, the view, nature, etc…!
    All what we need and want in a campsite ! Simplicity and humanity
    Thanks Stefano for this experience
    See you soon and take care Odile and Bruno

  • A very pleasant discovery, a lovely couple. We were welcomed like kings. Discussions between Italian, Spanish, English and French. A wonderful evening that we will keep in mind. Thanks again to you and your suggestions for the museum visit which the children really enjoyed. If one day you come to the Drôme, near Valence, we will be happy to receive you. And if necessary in Grenoble, my father has a hotel in Domène. Thank you again for your help.

  • From the bottom of my heart, thank you Natascia and Stefano!!! ❤️
    There are no words strong enough to tell you that we love you.
    We spent an exceptional and wonderful time in your company, in an idyllic setting.
    A rich and friendly exchange around a good table.
    We will come back to eat Stefano's delicious "pasta al sugo" and Natascia's torte.
    A home-camp as we like them, only better!

  • Excellent experience at Stephano and Natacha ! We were welcomed as in the family, just perfect ! Whether it is on arrival, sharing the evening meal and also the next morning, really top of top ... A huge thank you for their kindness and generosity. The best ricotta in the world is made by Natacha and we could also taste a lot of local products and even vegetables from their garden ! Incredible

  • Stefano is a wonderful person! He gave us a very warm welcome! And he gave us some insights about the region. Eventhough it was our first night in Italy we already knew it would be a highlight of our trip!

    Thank you Stefano!!!

  • It was an unique experience visiting Stefano and Natasha at this gorgeous location! We had a wonderful view over the valley which was totally worth the adventurous trip up the hill :-)
    Thanks a lot for the warm welcome, the delicious cheese, beer, coffee and plum tarte!

  • Stefano and Natasha are two great hosts. We were warmly welcomed and spent a WONDERFUL time with them and your dear dog Balu.
    The place for the tent is excellently located. The cleanliness Tip Top. Even if the sanitary facilities are still in completion, it is already inviting. Sometimes it is the little things that enchant you. We have missed nothing.

    On request, for a few euros, we were served a delicious dinner in their company. A wonderful evening of local specialties and conversation. We will come again. When? That is still open. But we are already looking forward to a homemade lasagna from Natasha.
    THANK YOU for everything. Stay as open-hearted and cheerful as you are.

  • We had a great stay that we remember with pleasure. Stefano and his wife gave us a very warm welcome. The pitch and the view was beautiful. We are very happy to come back!

  • Stefano and Natascia are super nice and caring. Vegetable garden, fruit trees ... The location is quiet with a great view. You can watch the deer at sunrise and sunset. Great place to start beautiful walks and bike rides.

  • To be a guest of Stefano is a special experience. The approach rustic, the welcome warm and the location and view phenomenal. Communication absolutely reliable and problem-free.
    We will always remember our overnight stay, it is like staying with good friends.

  • Stefano was great ! The communication excellent and he even baked us a cake !!

  • We had a wonderful night lulled by the song of the crickets. Stefano and Natascia are two special people and Balu has been a great friend to Mirta. If you pass by those parts do not miss this lovely place.????

  • Stefano was really welcoming and kind. Very beautiful place with stunning views. Absolutely fantastic hosts. We would love to come back som day!

  • We received an exceptional welcome, in a beautiful setting. Stefano and his wife are great people. Not to be missed if you are in the area.
