The Agritourism

Cascina Bosco Fornasara is an oasis of nature and biodiversity along the Via Francigena in Lomellina, few kilometers from urban centres of great historical, artistic and architectural value – such as Vigevano, Casale, Novara and Vercelli – and from important cities such as Pavia, Milan and Turin.

We like to define our agritourism a “bio-agritourism” because we want to refer to terms like BIOLOGICAL and GREEN BUILDING. Cascina Bosco Fornasara is in fact our biological farmhouse but it is also our home, which we have partly built and partly restored following the principles of green building.

All you can find here is the result of careful choices, based on the respect of nature and on sustainability and ecological policies. The building hosting the reception, the shop and the “Room with a view” is part of the original structure, dating to 1800, which was used by the employees of Cascina Bosco, before the agricultural revolution of the ’60. We restored it with natural and recycled materials, (rice husk, lime, dirt, straw, hemp, wood), the furniture and the floor are made of wood, treated with natural oil and ecological paints, soaps and detergents are eco-friendly.

Breakfast is made of biological ingredients, at zero km, mainly vegetable and integral. For the restoration we adopted the maximum possible ecological standards, not only in the choice of the materials, natural and completely a-toxic, but also in the energetical planning.

Water is heated by means of solar panels and electric energy is produced by the solar power system, located above the agricultural structures. The heating is underfloor, in order to offer the maximum thermic comfort and the least energetic consumption.

Waste collection is separate.

Our room with a view

Our “Room with a view” offers a double exposure with a delightful panorama which, in the clear days, allows to admire the plain and the sun setting on Monte Rosa. The walls are plastered in natural clay and painted with lime, the floor and the furniture are made of natural wood. It has a private bathroom (supplied with shower, wc, bidet, hairdryer, eco-friendly soaps, towels in pure cotton) and an equipped kitchen area.
