When I booked the room I have requested to visit the vinegar cellar. No e-mail reply after I booked.Their promotion paper have showed they have a tour every evening perhaps. Too disappointed we were from the other side of the world. And our schedule is too tide to reschedule visit another vinegar cellar. Maybe a vinegar cellar from them is nothing special. But this is one of our reason to go there.
We love the old fashion room, just to pay a little bit more can get a bigger suite. But they have to change the mattress. The mattress is terrible we couldn't slept well. The food is so good with vinegar. Local wine is cheap and good.

This was the third hotel we stayed at on our Italy tour. When we left the previous hotel, we said nothing could be better. That was until we pulled up in the car park at Agriturismo Cavazzone. It was lunch time and the restaurant was closed and all the staff taking a rest before the evening service, but a lady appeared to show us to our room. During our stay this lady turned out to be the most wonderful host, a real asset to the hotel. She knows who she is!!

The room was actually a suite, a lounge and very large bedroom furnished in traditional antique furniture, the old stone clad floor, beamed ceiling a original style farm doors just added to the atmosphere. There was traffic noise in the morning though, our room being at the front, there are rooms at the rear of the farm, but we prefered to stay where we were. At least it made sure we were up in the morning to go visit the many places on our agenda.

the restaurant is what people drive up to Agriturismo Cavazzone for and we had to force ourselves to eat elsewhere, but only twice, just to experience other restaurants. The food is divine, they use balsamic vinegar wherever they can, because its made on the premises, try the vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of vinegar! But dont try it at home with shop bought stuff! Make sure you get Tommy to show you around the production area and listen to his talk.

We spent six days here, visiting Parma, with its beautiful basilica, Modena and the Ferrari museum and Bologna. We also took two drives into the Apennine mountains. The second drive along the SS63 from Reggio Emilia the easiest and most rewarding.

Many times we will say we want to revisit a place, but if we could only ever revisit one, it would be here.

We stayed in cavazzone for the first time in the summer of 2012 and returned this May. While many stay in the families other hotel, the Posta in Reg Emilio, only visiting Cavazzone, we did the opposite. The menu is so good and the chef so accommodating, that was easy to dine only in the restaurant for our for night stay. Cavazzone was our jumping off point for cheese, ham and lambrusco tours in the Parma region. The family balsamic production at Cavazzone covered that part of the adventure. Very flavorful.

The staff treated us like family and generously accommodated every request for assistance traveling in the area or off-menu meal choice. We were pleased that the high quality remained consistent from year to year.

I cannot recommend this highly enough. It is well worth the drive from Florence or Bologna. You will not be disappointed!!

This is a grand old building set on a hill which offers magnificent views. There is a restaurant - closed when we stayed mid-week out of season - but the ambiance was very appealing during breakfast which was ample and well presented.

The clean rooms have plenty of old world charm so if you're looking for atmosphere you'll be well catered for here but if heavy antique furniture and rough rustic terracotta floors are not your thing then it's not for you.

The central heating was on when we arrived on a very cold wet evening so it was welcoming but we'd opted to have a "suite" with an anteroom and fireplace, just to have a little atmosphere but unfortunately no wood was provided. We could have gone and asked but as we were the only guests it would have meant we had to go and search out the lady who whisked us through check-in, and she lived in another part of the building and we'd already gone in search of extra pillows.

We had a wi-fi router in the room so no problem with the signal - but unfortunately they didn't automatically provide you with the log in details. We could have gone and asked but . . . . . . .
You shouldn't have to go and ask for all these things if your hosts have given it just a little bit attention to detail.

Having invested in a good wi-fi system you'd have imagined that they would have also ensured the TV system received a reasonable signal. We had two TVs - one in the anteroom opposite a lumpy sofa and one in the bedroom. On both TVs the images for every channel we could actually receive was exceptionally poor. Yes, you're in the countryside here, but this isn't a wild mountain location, so is it too much to ask that the TVs have reasonable reception.

The main problem didn't emerge until we went to bed - a truly uncomfortable bed. Offering a good night's sleep is the foundation of the hospitality business and here this basic requirement was missing. Initially we thought it was just an old mattress that should have been replaced years before. However, in the morning, when we investigated why the bed was just so uncomfortable we discovered that the double mattress was on two single base units - creating a ridge down the middle - one base had springs (soft) and the other had wooden slats (firm.) The old mattress with one firmer and one softer base unit meant everything about the bed was uneven!

If this was a small operation maybe you could think they couldn't afford the investment but there's a large restaurant, meeting rooms, balsamic vinegar production priced at €100 - €950 per litre, they offer cooking classes and cater for wedding.

With a very modest investment, a little forethought and more attention to detail this place could be perfect - unfortunately it isn't.

7-8 km up the hill from Albinea you find this Agriturismo with the most fantastic view eastwards as one might imagine. FInding the place may actually be the most challenging, but in reality it is simple: take Strada Provinciale from Albinea and follow the road until you are almost on top of the hill. Cavazzone is on the left hand side.

The service is friendly, and the rooms charming and romantic. The bathroom we had must have been redecorated recently, the main bedroom was kept in a more traditional style. Only 2 bedrooms for each floor. The stairway from the first floor is made for Italian sizes. There is little to complain about, but it would have helped this place if they had had better language skills in English. We will return anyway.

We were staying in town at Hotel Posta, owned by the same family, and drove out to the family owned agriturismo for a tour of the balsamic production and a meal on the terrace. The menu features the families balsamic products and was quite delightful. This was our second time to dine in the restaurant and both meals were very good. The agriturismo is a little difficult to find but worth the effort.
