I can't even put into appropriate words how amazing mine and my husband's stay at Villino di Porporano was! We stayed there on our last 4 day leg of a 2 week European vacation and it was the absolutely the perfect way to end it in total relaxation! Elena and Paola are incredible and so sweet! Breakfast is absolutely delicious... More

I only give his a three star because it is small but believe me it is a lovely place to stay and the ambiance is fantastic. The room we had was decorated very charmingly as was the whole building. Breakfast was taken outside this morning which consisted of a buffet with fruit, pastries and of course Parma ham as we... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for you wonderful review on TripAdvisor. We are delighted that we have been a "great find" and that you enjoyed your brief stay at Villino di Porporano.

Stayed in the villino for 4 nights, it was a great experience and totally felt in love with the place. The owner Elena was most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. She made us feel relaxed and quite at home. The rooms were lovely and decor beautiful. Great location with a good home made breakfast to start your day.... More

We just came back from our vacation in Italy where we spent three nights in Elenas Villino, and really enjoyed it! It was the perfect place for us and our 2 year old son. The room was really neat and cleen, decorated in a romantic style, and the air-condition worked well. Our son loved exploring the big garden and having... More

The Villino di Porporano is a 5 room B&B in a restored 18th century farm house just outside of Parma, Italy. We spent 3 nights there last month as part of a 2 week vacation in northern Italy. We were greeted by the owner, Elena, a wonderful warm person who lives right next to the B&B with her family. Elena... More

We fell upon Villino di Porporano by accident en route to Parma, and are so glad we did. It's a family-run b & b located in an old renovated building about 5-10 minutes outside Parma. There is a beautiful pool to swim in and lush, large gardens to relax, while the rooms are comfortable and classically appointed. Elena, the owner,... More

I didn't just enjoy my stay at Villino di Porporano, I wanted to move in. The accommodations and grounds were absolutely stunning! The B&B is a gorgeously remodeled former stable that retains the beautiful architecture, yet makes it modern at the same time. Elena has decorated every part with wonderful furniture and decor. No detail is left unattended. She lives... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July and really enjoyed it. Very nice property in a quiet area not too far from Parma. Elena gives you a couple of tips that are worth listening too: parking, restaurants, ... After your visit to Parma or Food tour, you can enjoy you very clean room and have a swim in the pool....

if you are looking for a place to call home while you enjoy the Parma region, this is the place to stay. Hosted by Elena, you are more than a pampered guest, you are family.

We selected Villino di Porporano for our weekend getaway to the Parma region. The B&B is very inviting with lovely decor throughout. Our room was appointed with traditional (old world) Italian linens (nicely pressed) and clean. The entire staff is more than welcoming and very hospitable; the breakfasts are great with homemade baked goods and eggs can be cooked to... More
