You are welcome to Casa Giardino, in the countryside between Modena and Bologna! We will be happy to welcome you! Ours is a private home, we are not for profit, but for sharing, the fees set therefore are the contribution to our family for the use of electricity, water, gas and the maintenance of the space. You can stay with your tent in the shade of walnut trees, among native hedges planted, as they once were, to mark boundaries and create a cozy space. Camper vans, caravans and minivans will be able to stand on concrete pavers, with a garden beside them to relax and eat in peace. Table and benches, the use of a shared kitchenette with refrigerator, bathroom with shower, washing machine ( contribution of €2.50 per wash) sandbox and swing for the little ones, table tennis, bookcrossing for reading and taking/donating a book, board games,
a small library for young and old, the large porch in which to find shelter. Extra weekly activities you can sign up for: yoga, pilates, meditation, cultural meetings.
We are located near the Ciclovia del Sole, which connects Verona to Bologna, easily reached, via country roads.
In the village of Manzolino, 1.5 km from the house, there is a grocery store, pharmacy, newsstand, baker, post office, tobacco shop.
You can pitch your tent on the lawn, under walnut trees and among native hedges. For campers, caravans and minivans there is a dedicated space on an area with concrete self-blocking, adjacent to the garden. The typical country setting with the passing of the seasons and the work of farmers will interest children: the chickens in the chicken coop, the hares and pheasants crossing the lawn in the evening and early morning.
The space is vast: level, grassy and walnut-shaded for tents, level and on self-striping for campers, caravans and minivans, also for them with adjacent garden. Convenient light connection in both spaces.

You can taste the typical tortellino in Castelfranco's restaurants or take a trip to Spilamberto, home of traditional Modena vinegar, or to Castelvetro, where Lambrusco Grasparossa is born. On request and by prior arrangement, you can visit a local roastery of excellent organic coffee, and you can purchase wines and derivatives from local grapes from an organic farm near us. From the Castelfranco Emilia train station (a ten-minute drive from our home) you can go to Modena and Bologna.

First Homecamper experience and we couldn't have wished for anything better. Marta and her family are adorable and very available. We were given a detailed tour of Bologna, which we followed almost to the letter, and it was perfect!
The outbuilding, with its many facilities, means that we lack for nothing, and everything is very clean.
The garden is magnificent.
Thanks again Marta for this experience
Our stay at Marta's was perfect! Marta is very welcoming, the garden is ideal for pitching a tent, and the common room/sanitary area is very good, with everything you need and very clean.
We had a great time with Marta, her family and the other campers.
I totally recommend it!
Thank you Marta for this great experience :)
