    House - Calestano pr

    “Forty kilometers from Parma, following the right side of the Baganza torrent, passing the main town Calestano, the valley narrows to invite the stranger to stop; continuing the slightly uphill road you reach the town of Ravarano which stands in a pleasant and charming position , at the foot of Montagnana mountain. Climbing the hills surrounding, you can enjoy a great panorama. The view, sweeping with great pleasure, admires the valleys of the Taro river, Baganza and Parma.”

    This is how Don Italo (distinguished priest of Ravarano) wrote in 1954 about this particular hamlet of the Municipality of Calestano which, at around 700 m above sea level, dozes at the foot of the Castle of the same name. “Ravarano, an Apennine village” he calls it, quoting an old popular song from the 1920s, a picturesque village with a magical fairy-tale feel that stands on the Via Longobarda and is made up of a few stone houses that do not hide typically medieval details.

    Also mentioned among the historical and natural assets of the Parma Apennines, this stone house overlooks a green recess of the main road that leads from the village to the Castle and, through a romantic arched passage, onto the intimate courtyard at the back shared with the neighboring houses.

    How can we give an idea of ​​the history that emanates from those stones, those windowsills and those jambs of the small windows, that vaulted corridor that overlooks the courtyard behind and onto which the entrance to the basement cellar and the house open? The atmosphere is that of a fairy tale because the generations who have lived within those thick walls, among those lanes and small squares belong to a past made up of a mixture of history and nostalgia that only a fairy tale can tell.

    Located in via Borgo Antico, it could only be like this.

    Perfect now as an ideal second home for spending weekends and holidays in tranquility not too far from Parma, with the Ligurian sea close at hand on the other side of the Lunigiana hills.

    It requires a total and complete renovation that preserves the historical and characteristic features that distinguish it.
