The Agritourism is situated between Crema and Cremona, next to the splendid 15th century Church of Santa Maria Bressanoro. Santa Maria is a fascinating place with it's atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Walls enclose what used to be the kitchen garden of the Franciscan monks. One of the rooms that was part of the monastery and is decorated with 17th century frescos can still be visited. Walking through the fruit trees you come to three small chalets, built at the beginning of the 20th century.
They are surrounded by linden trees and sophora japonica. The chalets were built over the two streams that flow through the fruit orchard. There are rooms with a bathroom, air-conditioning and TV with DVD and video machines. There is an Internet connection available in each room. There are bicycles for visiting the surrounding countryside and a reading room with a small kitchen all available for the guest's use.
As well as the fruit trees there are vines growing along the old wall that surrounds the farm. There is also a rose garden with hundreds of roses bushes of all colours and perfumes, many varieties from the very oldest to the most recent. A fish-pond is shades by a centuries old walnut tree and there's a museum of old agricultural implements.
Chickens, rabbits and ducks are raised.
