Our Bed&Breakfast is located in the small village of Castelfranco d'Oglio, in the municipality of Drizzona, in the province of Cremona, in the heart of the Oglio South Park (Parco dell'Oglio Sud). The village is on the left river bank at about twenty km from the river Po, in a terrotory that, for this reason, is called Oglio-Po.

The area situated at the confluence of the rivers Oglio and Po has really ancient origins, as evidenced by the numerous finds over the centuries. Many of them are still found during excavations and renovations. In summer, when there's a little water, you can find several ancient artifact seekers along the river. The most important archaeological site is the roman village of Bedriacum. Unfortunately, this site is usually closed to the public, but there's some special opening from time to time. For any information you can also visit the Visitors Centre Calvatone-Bedriacum Facebook page.
