“La Ca' Vecchia B&B” (the old house).
La Ca' Vecchia B&B is a country house which was the first inhabited nucleus of Rea, a small village in the area called Oltrepò Pavese (beyond the river Po), 15 Km from Pavia.
It is placed on the right side of the river, at the end of the river Ticino Park, along the Via Francigena and the Way of Salt. Quite near the hills of Casteggio, a morainic amphitheater, are a great local attraction because of their natural, historical and cultural value.
Silent and confortable rooms with private bathroom, one is also suitable for disable people.
A garden with trees and flowers where you can relax and a small chapel where you can admire a sculpture by Pino Baù.
We offer: B&B, ½ pension, high quality food (our motto is high quality in tradition), rent bike.
They tell about us.
La Ca' Vecchia is a very nice and charming old farm in the outer circle of the small village of Rea. Not the easiest to find, but really worth looking for and finally finding.
The hospitality and personal service as well as the quality of the rooms, are on the same level as Tina’s cooking and kindness. Just fantastic and excellent! Home made Italian food, made with love and local ingredients together with local wines, in this atmosphere, make you very close to heaven. This little village close to the river Po, is a quiet place with cool and nice citizens, out on the country side. It’s also a perfect distance to cities, other villages, wine district, old castles and much more interesting to experience in this old province of Pavia. You can spend your whole life travelling around in only this province of Italy, with its fantastic old and important history, without manage to see it all. The city of Pavia and La Ca’ Vecchia in Rea are then perfect for a start of the Italian journey of your life.

This B&B is something very particular which is not so easy to find. It's managed by a couple who
speaks English fluently and infact they have guests from all over the world.
This B&B is in a peaceful place which is better to reach renting a car. From there you can visit beautiful sites like Pavia, Milan, Appennini and Langhe.
It's so peaceful you will be waked up by the rooster.
Altough the place is far from the sea dinner will reserve you many surprises: from ravioli filled with beef, to impepata di cozze, from porcini mushrooms, to “saor”, from culatello to genoa rice pie.
Tina (the chef) is very careful about your health and digestion and together with Ferdinando (who is in charge of wines and hams among many other things).
They buy the main ingredients from local suppliers. This improves the genuity of the meals.
Rooms are very comfy and have their own bathroom.
Have a nice staying,
