Description
“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.

The rooms
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.

Kjell-Ivar and Jens Edvard from Norway-2006.

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,
Vincenzo.

Staying at Tina's is truly an added value. Tina is a very kind, super attentive and friendly host, and we had a really good time. We stayed for two nights on the occasion of the BB DAY, and since the first night we had the only room with an external bathroom, the next evening she moved us to one of the rooms with an ensuite bathroom (much more comfortable indeed). One of the two nights we also had dinner, and it was a wonderful, delicious dinner for the dishes and for the company of Tina and her husband Ferdinando, an excellent wine connoisseur. It felt like being among friends and it was a wonderful experience. We will definitely come back, and I highly recommend it! Thank you so much dear Tina!

The location situated in a countryside farmhouse has an ancient charm. The owner is extremely kind and prepares a good breakfast with homemade pastries. The owner also runs a small restaurant, and upon reservation, it is possible to taste an unparalleled local cuisine.

Impeccable management, clean structure, immersed in nature even though this entails the presence of mosquitoes (a pity because breakfast in the garden would have been an added value), about 20 minutes away from Pavia.

La ringrazio molto per la bella recensione. Purtroppo la recente pioggia ha annullato l'effetto della disinfestazione, che consente di fare colazione nei tavoli predisposti, in mezzo alla natura che lei ha tanto apprezzato. Cercheremo in futuro di rinnovarla con maggiore frequenza.

My husband and I spent a lovely and relaxing weekend. Mrs. Tina and her husband literally pampered us, we immediately felt at home. The dinner was simple but well taken care of in every detail, Mrs. Tina's braised agnolotti were delicious, all accompanied by quality wines recommended by Mr. Ferdinando. We highly recommend it.

Mrs. Tina was a delightful, kind, and helpful host. We had a great time, her property is immersed in the countryside, the room was furnished with antique furniture and I found the bed comfortable. There is no TV, which I consider a plus. On Sunday, the owner served us a great breakfast with homemade pastries, and then we had the opportunity to have a nice chat both with her and with some of her relatives who had come to visit. Tina is very affable and sociable, and she is a true mine of information about the area. You get the feeling of knowing her for a long time, I think we will gladly return to her property. Thank you for everything, we had a great time!

Friendly hostess and host. Clean room with air conditioning. Also had dinner at the restaurant. Price/quality definitely okay. Breakfast was a bit disappointing- could have been more extensive. Only some crostini, no bread. The hostess made a delicious omelet for us. All in all, still a successful visit.

The structure is located on the outskirts of a very small village a short distance from the Po, a skillfully renovated farmhouse and very quiet. Cozy rooms, furnished in an antique style and air-conditioned. The owner is a very kind and caring person, the cuisine with local specialties, some very particular, is excellent and very varied.

La Ca' Vecchia is a tidy and clean property with plenty of space in tastefully furnished rooms. Breakfast is served in the restaurant room that is part of the property and which I highly recommend trying for the quality and uniqueness of the dishes served. The owners are kind and available and gladly share the lived history of the place allowing the traveler to understand the present by looking at the past. In short, I wouldn't change such a place for any impersonal and soulless hotel. I also greatly appreciated the absence of a TV in the restaurant room, generally present and constantly on in many "non-places" of refreshment.

I due proprietari sono persone gentilissime e accoglienti, la gestione è familiare e quindi molto semplice ma dispone di tutto il necessario. La nota più positiva è la grande pulizia. Anche il ristorante, sempre gestito da loro è ottimo, pochi tavoli ma il cibo genuino e casalingo, si assicurano sempre di averne offerto a sufficienza. Ottimo per un breve soggiorno. Siamo una coppia giovane e ci siamo trovati benissimo.
