Where we arePiccola Raieda is situated in a particularly striking position, northwards the gaze sweeps over the city of Bologna and over a fine portion of the Po Plain, when the air is really clean, and this happens especially during certain winter days, the sight reaches the snowy summits of the Alps, and the show is really unique.
Overlooking the south ridge of the farmhouse, man realizes how Tuscany really within a stone's throw is.
In this splendid land it is possible to walk for hours and hours inside woods which seem the fairy ones, to meet wild boars, roes, deer and fallow deer is on the agenda, there are ponds and brooks where nearly extinct animals like the crayfish of river and the spectacled salamander live.
The farmhouse Piccola Raieda is situated at about 10 minutes from the exit of Sasso Marconi of the A1 motorway and at about 25 minutes from the city of Bologna.
