The Farmhouse

our history

The Farmhouse La Part is located by he Pora district, a typical villages of the country, it looks like as an old settlement of rural houses built in stone strictly: the houses have the typical structure with two floors and loft and gather in courtyards connected by alleys, on which faces and arcades open, barns and old warehouses for agricultural tools.

La Part farmhouse is at the end of the district, surrounded by greenery and quiet. It is opened in 2004 when the Castellani family has decided to expand the farm's opening up to accommodation and direct sales of genuine products at km 0 (cow cheeses, meat, local cured meats, organic chestnuts). The Family has been passionately dedicated to cattle breeding, milk production, and the processing of its derivatives and chestnut growing for three generations

The name La Part, which designates the locality as part, part, more isolated than the district, also recalls the past, when the Castellani family granted a part of the harvest to those who contributed to the chestnut harvest: the chestnuts of San Zeno, which are the fruits par excellence of the Montebaldina land and which have boasted the prestigious DOP brand since 2002 (protected designation of origin), are the basis of the menu designed by the La Part farmhouse in autumn, on the occasion of the traditional chestnut festival. Castanea Beer is also produced with Marroni di San Zeno D.O.P., which can be tasted here.

The La Part farmhouse is the recommended starting point for those who want to move on foot and by bicycle following the marked paths or by motorbike, along the paved roads that lead both at high altitude and to the shores of Lake Garda. Mount Baldo, defined by the ancient herbalists Hortus Europae, has a still uncontaminated nature and, thanks to a favorable microclimate, a flora that is in some respects unique.

Other places of considerable historical and artistic interest are, within the municipality of San Zeno di Montagna, Cà Montagna, an ancient and noble residence that has a portico with loggia and Gothic windows and, inside, interesting frescoes; the alpine church of San Bartolomeo in Prada Bassa and the numerous districts scattered throughout the area, all to be discovered for those who love walking or getting on two wheels .
