This was a homerun. Went on a surprise trip with my wife where I had arranged everything, she is a bit wary about B&Bs and loves hotels but after a visit at the Villino she almost wouldnt leave. The engagement and dedication that you find at Elena is amazing. Fantastic breakfast and good tips on where to eat. Lovely garden... More

Just left the best B and B we've been to in Italy so far. Beautiful setting just outside Parma, lovely gardens with the smell of jasmine in the air.

The Villino is located in a small town just outside of Parma. It’s run by Elena who is very well organized and has taken care of all the details. The house is lovely, and the garden is beautiful. Our room was quite large, and my wife’s only complaint was that there was no refrigerator in the room. That was no... More

Nice villa near Parma. Stylish and welcoming, the B&B offers a very comfortable and pleasant place to relax. The host is very friendly and pleasant and she definitely spent time and effort to make her place unique. Linen bedsheets and a great breakfast. Great spot to access Parma and surroundings.

my wife and I did the cooking class and spent the night at the Villa. Fantastic ! Our room was extremely well appointed, classy and quiet. Big bathroom with underfloor heating I think. Cooking class was magic : we cranked out an enormous amount of food under Elena's expert tuition. Her kitchen is a hybrid of a classic farmhouse kitchen... More

An excellent renovated property, run by its owner Elena. It's home-from-home with. friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfasts. Porporano is 15mins drive from Parma centre and is a quiet and peaceful village. Two excellent restaurants within walking distance. Lots of countryside around.

We stayed in the Rose Room at Villino di Porporano while taking a day trip to Parma and had a wonderful time at Elena's establishment. The guesthouse was very nice and relaxing, and the breakfast was a delicious spread of homemade and local foods. Elena was very helpful in planning our evening in Parma and if we are ever back...

My friend and I were not planning to spend a night in Parma. Not impressed with the chain hotels in the center, we took a chance on Villino because of the wonderful reviews.

This b&b is outside the city center of Parma so, as stated before, you must have transportation. The innkeeper is a really nice lady who will gladly recommend places to eat in town. The actual rooms are in a separate building from the main house, the rooms are large, with large bathrooms and the setting is really nice. The breakfast... More

First of all, Elena is the star of the show. She is a bundle of energy with a smile that lights up the room. She is funny, warm, caring, the perfect host. That being said, the property is a close second. The house itself is beautiful, meticulously maintained with lovely grounds. We were there in November, so no pool time,... More

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
