The Farm is located in Costa del Grillo in the municipality of Travo, Piacenza Italy, along the Italian Alpine Club trail 101. Some GPS system have the place on it. Be careful to select the shortest path because you might be directed through the village of Fradegola, whose dirty road continues towards the ridge: after a heavy rain can be difficult to drive without a 4WD. Better to drive trough Travo.
So, there are three easy ways to reach us:
- by Travo (10 min), going up to the Pastori, and Pietra Parcellara. After the village Chiosi di Bobbiano turn right once you reach the Bergonzi / Monticello junction . Climb to the ridge, follow the paved road passing the houses of Case Rotte. After them, the first group stone houses you see is the Costa del Grillo.
- From Rivergaro/ Statto (20 min) climb towards Pigazzano to “antennas” that are located on top of the hill. Continue along the ridge up to Monticello. Turn left without leaving the ridge. After the signs for Zucca Uomo, Missano and Pradello (do not follow them) the first village is Costa del Grillo (right on the hill you will see our Paddocks and Arena)
- From Gazzola / Agazzano (15 min) continue to Rezzanello, then Monticello. Follow the ridge. After the signs for Zucca Uomo, Missano and Pradello (do not follow them) the first village is Costa del Grillo (right on the hill you will see our Paddocks and Arena)
Coming from Bobbio follow the directions from Travo (avoiding the Caldarola pass, stretches a lot).
From South Piacenza follow the directions from Rivergaro.
From West Piacenza follow the directions from Gazzola / Agazzano; same for those coming from Val Tidone.
From Milan: West Piacenza highway exit is better, but the toll is more expensive than in South Piacenza exit.
