A simple hillside divides Oltrepo Pavese from Colli Piacentini, the landscape continues with meandering vineyards on both sides. But there are differences: the wines, above all sparkling wines, and the cuisine. Oltrepo is the land of risotto and boiled meat served with peverada, a pepper sauce,
and cheese tied to the piedmont toma tradition.
La Locanda dei Beccaria offers these specialties. Located in the historical Montù winery, a collaboration with Farm holidays Da Prati, makes it an ideal place for a vacation of total relax.
The country estate offers six completely independent apartments which overlook the hills and the swimming pool. Attentive refurbishing of a late 800’ rural farm house has conserved stone walls and arches. A perfect starting point for excursions on foot, by bike or on horseback through the one thousand square kilometre area of the Oltrepo Pavese, a territory that offers surprises and good taste in every corner.
The Montù winery is an example: founded in 1902, the cite of the first Cantina Sociale Italiana, it dominates Valle Versa from the summit of the Montù Beccaria hills. In 1998 it returned to its original splendour starting production again with the best technology but maintaining the lure of its large wood barrels.
The country estate offers horse lovers the possibility to rent stables.
