Our location

Nestled in the picturesque valley that merges with the River Trebbia, you will find our home. Here, where Annibal’s troops camped in 218 a.c., it is difficult to imagine elephants, armour and a fierce battle between the Roman and Carthaginian troops…
Now in the same place, you can see vineyards, cultivated fields, hills and the winding river (Trebbia), twisting and turning for many kilometres, changing its color: emerald green when crossing the steep gorges of our mountains or light blue when it rests in the plains. It is very difficult to image Annibale and his camps here … just around the corner ! But thanks to unspoilt countryside and the silence of the country, you can breath air that is both magical and evocative

Il giaciglio di Annibale is situated in Monteraschio-Rivalta, in Luretta Valley, in the Luretta Valley, in the small, unspoilt hills of Piacenza. The farmhouse is surrounded by peaceful rural countryside which can offer you a holiday of sport, culture or total relax! The strategic position of the farmhouse which is totally immersed in nature and tranquillity, is also an ideal starting point to get to know the many typical characteristics of one of Piacenza’s valleys. You should visit the many castles, explore the area on foot, by mountain bike or motorcycle, enjoy our local winw by visiting one of the many vineyards and taste our delicious, local specialities.

The Farm

Giaciglio di Annibale is a small family reality, born in 1935 by granfather Giuseppe. The farm and passion for the countryside and its fruits has been passed down generation by generation. Our land extends to nine hectar; the fields are around the farmhouse. In 2012 the original farm building became a farmhouse, where you can spend your holiday. Only the family work in the farm and in the fields. The main products are: fodder and grass once for our livestock and now sold; seasonal fruits produced by our small orchard and that you can taste in the farm; vegetables grown in our allotment can be enjoyed raw and pickled in oil or used for tasty appetizers. Recently we started to grow medicinal and aromatic herbs (lavender, mint, marigold, nuts). In the farmhouse you can find some typical local food.

The Farmhouse

The hotel, recently renovated (2011), offers a comfortable environment in harmony with nature and consistent with the past (the barn with porch restored following the traditional architecture of the place). Respect for the environment and attention to simplicity have guided our actions for restoration. The building was constructed by adopting the recent earthquake standards and is equipped with photovoltaic system. Your pets are welcome, provided they are always supervised. Wi-Fi in all public areas and guest rooms. The atmosphere is friendly, informal and homely.
