A little out of the way from the mainstream but well worth the visit ! The hospitality from the family and staff was 5 star yet cozy and laid back. Excellent service for both the hotel and restaurant. Do not be put off as you drive up .... just go through the doorway and it's a step back in time... More

This hotel/restaurant looks like nothing, until you step through the entrance. The former monastery has been tastefully renovated, turning the hotel into a very special place. The room are small, with low ceilings, making them very cozy. The shower rooms are spacious, with some lovely little touches, ie complimentary toothbrushes. The showerhead was fixed, and the aircon, was effective but... More

I only spent one night here, which is a shame. The place is an old Monastery which is being refurbished. I booked 2 basic single rooms as we were only staying the one night, we got upgraded to a double room. As said the rooms are not huge but they were clean and comfortable. We stayed for dinner also on... More

We really enjoyed our one night here, it is a great building full of history, we were made very welcome and had a whole wing to share with our friends, the rooms are clean but quite small which is part of the charm and there are lounge areas that are very comfortable. The breakfast was good and we would have... More

Let's be clear - the room is definitely no more than a standard 3-star, however this place is extremely cheap, it's in a stunning building, it's in a lovely location and the restaurant downstairs, whilst ironically pricey, is really good. A fantastic experience - If I ever had an excuse to be in Parma again, I will stay here in... More

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Lovely restaurant with good food - although breakfast was very limited (even for Italy with no cheeses or meets (from what I could see)) Room is very basic and small. Bed and pillows are rock hard. This is the problem..........I stay in hundreds of hotels and the ONE thing I want is a good night... More

As we could not stay in Parma (there was a Ceramics fare that week, and all hotels fully booked), we looked for accomodation around the city. This monastery is a wonderful place to stay and only 20 km from Parma. The room was clean, and the whole atmosphere great. Breakfast was also very nice, with Parmegano and Prociutto from the...

Remarkable job to turn a monastery into such a fine hotel, great atmosphere. An elevator even only for one floor up. The professionalism of staff (good knowledge of English), their friendliness. Hardworking people too. Fine kitchen, good breakfast buffet and excellent value for money. The airco came in good use (though due to prevailing humidity it worked only 4 hours... More

Situated in a charming village a few kilometres off the A1 autostrada near Parma, the Relais Fontevivo was a total gem of a stop-over. The accommodation was acceptable but everything else - the welcome we received from the owners, the outstanding and unique ambience of the former monastery and the fantastic dinner enjoyed in the cloisters and cooled by a...

Peaceful location just outside Parma. Nicely renovated monastery with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Room was a little small but quite comfortable. It was a hot day and the air conditioner worked overtime but struggled to cool the room off to a really comfortable sleeping temperature. Very enjoyable dinner outside in the courtyard. There was a group from Modena also... More
