Compiano village, considered as one of the most charming medieval hamletsin Italy, has an interesting story, which involve its castle, that wasbuilt by the Longobardi people, and that has a long historical traditionunderscored by the succession of several noble lineages. Compiano is situated inthe Alta Val di Taro, between Piacenza, Genova, La Spezia and Massa-Carrara counties. The Taro Valley, with its east-west orientation, enjoys agood sun exposure even during winter, and it's benefited by the sea windcoming from the close Ligure Sea. This climate benefit seems to be the reason whyVal di Taro Porcino mushroom is so famous.

Placed on a 600 mt hill, the house is surrounded by almost uncontaminated nature, whose main colour is the intense green of woods that extend all around as far as the eye can see, and it enjoys a fine view.Being so close at hand, the woods allow trekking fans excellent walks or horse
rides, mushroom-gathering excursions, while history lovers are prized with visits to the number of castles established in the area. The "Via Francigena", one of whose trails passes very close to our valley, allows interesting discoveries about the medieval world and way of living.

The entrance is below a porch. The living room is an old cattle shed renovated; we have maintained two cylindrical columns and the typical barrel-shaped brick roof. It includes the dining room with kitchenette, and a relax area, and to the first floor are three bedrooms all with private bathrooms.

In this house both the heating and sanitary water are provided by biological systems. In winter, it provides to a biomass boiler in the summer and the hot water comes from a solar panel system so the balance of carbon dioxide "CO2" is zero.
