We wanted to visit Piacenza and Parma and found Podere Illica by chance. They couldn't have been more welcoming; the setting is lovely; and a very reasonable price. Near to the Podere is Castell'Arquato - which we hadn't heard about and is splendid. Piacenza hasn't that much to offer. Parma - the old city - is very beautiful - and... More

My husband and i spent three nights at the Podere Illica, near Castell'Arquato last week. Our hostess, Maria Erica, was a star - the villa is charming, our room was super clean, sunny and supremely comfortable. The formal garden is lovely, with the first hills of the Appenines to the back and the plain in front. She is a woman... More

Spent a night here and it was supreme. Lovely old villa placed a 5 minutes drive from an extremely charming town called Caste d'Arquato. The owners were extremely helpful, giving us a little tour of the place, and explaining the history of the establishment. The room was spacious and adorned with painting and other little perks like hand made wax... More

We had two visits on the route to Toscany, and on the way back home. The first time was warm and friendly, the second like old friends. Beautiful rooms, fine people and a great breakfast. What else does a traveller need?

End of juli we stayed one night in this accomodation. The word accomodation expressies not what it was. It indeed felt like a Palazzo. The service and hospitality were outstanding. The room had all luxeries inclusive a big and well equiped bathroom. The room itself was nicely decorated and sleeping was easy in the well climated room. The surroundings of... More

We stayed at the end of June, when participating in the above Motor Racing Event. Senora Sylvana accommodated us for 2 extra nights. We were able to park the trailer with race car and she was more than helpful with restaurant tips and advice. We loved the horses, dogs, geese and peacocks. Our room was very clean and comfortable and... More

The breakfast everyday was great and always had something different to offer. The owner of the hotel is extremely professional and takes very good care of her property.

The stay was a present from a friend for our anniversary. The place is stunning, the staff's attitude is really poor. As it was a smartbox, maybe our friend's money was not enough, and reading other reviews, it seems like a trend. That's no excuse for poor behaviour. Something else we noticed: some doors have the same keys, so keep... More

We spent a lovely time in this wonderful palazzo. The room was very clean and modern and appeared to have been refurbished only recently. Breakfast was exceptionally tasty: 4 different homemade cakes, italian coffee, yoghurts etc etc. The hostess was very knowledgeable; she was also very helpful in directing us to sites and restaurants, always calling ahead to ensure they...
