Imagine your children laughing in the pedal boats on the private lake...
Imagine cabins at the water's edge, there only for you to enjoy the sun...
Imagine swimming in the middle of this lake... or even catch some fish!
Imagine mouth-watering Italian cuisine prepared with love by your Chef...
Imagine that in this new Maison de Katy et Jacques we also thought of your dogs... Hey yes!
Imagine tranquil strolls on top of a horse along the edge of the river Po...
Imagine visits to Milan and the surrounding picturesque villages...
Imagine rowing a boat on the river Po...

All that is possible in your new home in Italy !

The rooms of La Cascina Erbatici

The 69 rooms of the Cascina Erbatici are spread over four of the farm's wings: the "corpo central", the "corpo B", the "corpo C" and the "corpo E". Guests can select amongst double rooms, twin rooms, triple rooms, quadruple rooms and large double rooms where we can happily add a baby cot.

The rooms are located on the ground floor and first floor of the old farmhouse and all contain a bull's eye window...! The all-encompassing theme of the estate is "from the farm to the plate" which is why all the rooms are named after delicious Italian dishes... YUMMY!
