Fantastic place to stay - like being in paradise. Well looked after - great attention to detail by the owner Elena that makes the stay really special. Especially enjoyed the fabulous breakfast prepared by Paola with homemade jams and cakes. Children loved the dogs and the swimming pool in the beautiful gardens. Angela and family

Villino di Porporano is located just outside of the Parma center, about 5 min drive, yet it is a luxury B&B in the country. So location is just perfect for a quiet and comfortable stay and to be close to the city center. Property is conveniently located on a not very busy street with a large backyard. And the actual...

A good parking place outside across the road. Lady Elena is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very luxurious and very clean. The house itself is very beautiful with a big garden and a nice swimming pool with salted water. A very romantic place and very quietly. There is air-conditioning and a screen before the windows against mosquitoes. The... More

This was a hidden gem off the beaten path. Attention to detail was obvious throughout the Villa Pool are was elegant and the entire place was lovingly cared for by a special couple- Elena and Peppi. They attended to all details including travel sightseeing and more. We loved our stay and hope to return.

This B&B is owned by a very nice family and is located in the surroundings of Parma. If traveling with a car it would be a perfect choice as it offers quiet surroundings and a garden with a swimming pool. The rooms are impeccable in presentation, cleaning and show good taste in the decoration, with embroidered linen sheets in the... More

we stayed one night and thoughtthe place offers everything a great b&b stands for: hospitality set in a warm and cosy place. breakfast was excellent ! we can certainly recommend it. the slight minus would be the location as the centre of Parma is not within walking distance.

It seems a trifle pernickety to grumble about such a beautifully appointed restoration. But to be excellent, a place must have the creature comfort factors as well and everything should work perfectly at this price, and Porporano just didn't have that Wow factor for us Let's start with the positives: beautiful looking, decorated tastefully, secluded, delightful gardens, loveable dogs, excellent...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a few kilometres from the centre of Parma, in the small, homely village of Porporano, a young couple devised and organised this place of delightful rest. Next to the main villa, in the garden grounds, springs an old rural cottage, built in solid stone brick with a hayloft above. This simple country site has been transformed into a charming cottage for guests; 5 rooms with en suite bathroom, communal area, a large kitchen, spacious veranda protected by glass which separates it from the enchanting green. Keeping the atmosphere of times gone by with its rough walls spaced out with blocks of pebble stone in place of bricks and the dimension of the hayloft which still astonishes those who enter; the rooms where the rough wooden floor gives harmony to the colours. The owners have furnished each room carefully and with passion: with iron headboards and delicately embroidered curtains and tapestry in thick linen, once forgotten in an old trunk. The cottage of Porporano, a place where hospitality is not only a profession but a style of life. ... more   less
