Great location to experience the foods of Parma. Cheese, Ham, and Balsamic Close to the city of Parma, and short distance to Bologna and the cinc-a-terra. Many areas to explore south of Parma where old castles can be found.

The room was spacious, complete and clean. The house has character and the garden invites for a greeting of the sunny day in the morning and the closure of the day in the evening. Breakfast is basic. Connection to the city center with a bus (at 150 m). Bologna is a 1 hour. A must do.

I stayed here for three nights. The location was excellent and I was recommended an excellent local restaurant by the owner. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The breakfast arrangement is highly efficient and the coffee excellent.

We really enjoyed the stay at this B&B, especially we appreciated a lot their warm hospitality. The room was very clean, each room is furnished elegantly. Children loved to play in garden where you can find full of herbs and flowers in spring time.

I travelled to in Podere Merlo B&B last weekend, together with three friends. We stayed in a very cosy flat at the first floor. Rooms were nice, silent and warm. The whole location looked lovely and we would have enjoyed staying outside, if the weather wasn't rainy. Podere Merlo is close to the highway, so I would highly recommend it...
