WITH CHILDREN

We found out (although we suspected that) that Barbialla Nuova is a natural amusement park for kids. Playing with dirt, rocks, leaves, climbing trees, walking in the woods are all unforgettable moments for our little ones, who get to experience nature first-hand. However, even for them we selected a few experiences outside Barbialla Nuova that can contribute to make their trip unforgettable. 

Guests can check if the chickens have laid any egg and feed the animals

VISIT THE ANIMALS

The farm hosts many animals (both domestic and wild). Our little guests ate welcome to check the chicken coop for eggs, give fresh grass to the cows, bring fruit and veggies to the pigs and spend sometime living the farm everyday's life.

PING PONG AND MORE 

In the common area at the house of Brentina our guests will find a ping pong table, for the little ones as well as for the grown-ups! Brentina also has a swing placed in the shade of a large fig tree. In most of the common areas you will find bocce balls, while at the reception desk you can ask for a set of Koop (the Viking's game)

PET THE CATS

Nine cats fluff up Barbialla Nuova. They're extremely social, and used to be pet by kids and grown-ups alike.

DRAW THE ANIMALS

Among our many projects for 2017, there is also a little art gallery for kids. Our little guests are invited to bring us a drawing depicting the animals of Barbialla Nuova. All the masterpieces will be published on our website, blog and Facebook page.

BABY CHEF

Even the little younglings can have a great time in the kitchen: our chef offers simplified cooking classes for kids. Pasta, gelato, meatballs and tiramisù are just a few of the options available to them, and at the end of the class the whole family can share what the kids prepared. 

Sour dough bread baking and pizza making for children and adults. A lot of fun playing with dough!

LITTLE BAKERS

Natural-born dad and great caretaker of his inner child, Francesco does a great job entertaining kids during bread baking and pizza making workshops. The kids can play with the dough, prepare their own loaf and pizza, and share it with the family (the presence of at least one of the parents is required).

HIKING

In a backpack, carrier,or on their own little feet, the kids enjoy walking in the woods. On our map you will find a description and difficulty of every single hiking trail and choose the most appropriate one for your kids. Once a week, Frank organizes a little walk around the farm, explaining local flora and fauna. The tour is very pleasant for our little guests as well as the rest of the family.

BABYSITTING AND NANNY SERVICE

Sometime parents need their own space. Sofie, part of our little farm community, will be happy to baby sit your kids while you are enjoying a dinner out or spending the evening in the thermal baths.
