Dal Duca B&B - Delizioso Soggiorno

Reviewed May 23, 2013

We came to Vigevano to attend to a wedding and only stayed one night , still we wish we could have stayed longer because first the friendly reception by the couple Clara and Marco and the beautiful room made us feel welcomed and at home from the very first minute. That Vigevano showed to be a both interesting little town with a beautiful old centre did not make it less inviting. This B&B is also perfectly situated on a quiet street and yet right in the centre close to the wonderful and surprisingly large Plaza with many cafés and much more.

We have only the best things to say about Dal Duca and the owners, Marco and Clara!

Instead of staying in Milano on a work trip, my husband and I decided to stay in a lovely town just outside the city we had heard about, Vigevano. Vigevano is a mere 25-ish minute train ride from Milano, and couldn't be more lovely.

Dal Duca is in the heart of the heart of the centro storico, which is simply gorgeous (medieval and renaissance architecture, an extraordinary piazza, works by Leonardo, etc.). But even though Dal Duca is right in the town's center, it is absolutely peaceful, quiet, and relaxing (just what we were looking for by NOT staying in Milano).

The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and well-appointed (Marco and Clara have thought of everything a traveller could possible want!)-- there are only 2 rooms available, which makes this B&B even more like being at home, and you really feel like you are being welcomed and cared for by family. And... for us busy workers, it was fantastic to have a fast wi-fi connection up and running!

Our room--impeccably clean and adorable--had a large, comfortable bed (with extra blankets and pillows and soft sheets); a large bathroom with space for cosmetics, hanging clothes, fluffy towels, etc.; many outlets for plugs as well as adapters; beautiful, antique furniture; and lovely balcony overlooking a little courtyard.

The common room was large, well-furnished, and contained the dining area for the delicious breakfasts that Clara prepared (whatever hour you wished)-- cakes and pasteries from a nearby pasticceria, Venchi chocolates, yogurt, cereal, fruit, eggs, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and espresso and cappuccino.

Marco and Clara are the best hosts imaginable. They took such good care of us from start to finish, guiding us to great restaurants and places in Vigevano, helping us organize our trips to Milano and elsewhere, and happily answering all our questions.

We would highly recommend Dal Duca to everyone, whether they are looking to experience a real Italian town; or to have a quiet, beautiful place to stay while working in Milano; or to go for a romantic weekend! If coming from a Milano airport it can be a little challenging to get to Vigevano, but Marco and Clara can recommend a driver who will meet you at the airport and take you directly to Dal Duca. As the room rates are reasonable, it is worth spending a little extra for the convenience (especially if you are jet-lagged). But if you are coming via train, it is very simple to get to Dal Duca.

We can't wait to go back to Dal Duca and hope we'll have an excuse in the near future!

We travel a lot to Vigevano and stay there 2 times a year since it opened. Its definitly an excellent place to stay. For us the best in Vigevano.
The owners are very very friendly and helpful! The rooms are beautiful, kitchen and living room are a great place not only to take meals but to relax.
To have breakfast on the balkony in the sun is our favorite!

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms available. ask for the room with the balkony.

My fiancee and I came to Vigevano for a business and pleasure trip in January 2013. Our flight arrived ahead of schedule in Milano and we arrived earlier than expected to the B&B. Despite this, Marco and Clara were there to greet us and provided us with a very nice breakfast after our long journey from Los Angeles.

The B&B had all the amenities, including WiFi and a cleanliness that is hard to find in many Italian accommodations. The B&B as a whole seemed to be newly remodeled and had a quaint feel to the decor. Dal Duca is nestled in a very quiet part of the city that only allows pedestrian traffic. However, it is still only a couple hundred meters from the beautiful Piazza Ducale and town centre.

Dal Duca also provided us with everything we needed as far as grooming supplies go. They even gave us a pair of slippers and a bath robe that made us feel relaxed and right at home. I am sure if there were anything else we needed, Marco and Clara would have made it happen! We are returning again to Vigevano in a few months and we will definitely be returning to Dal Duca. Frankly, we would be foolish not to. I would recommend Dal Duca B&B to anyone.

We were so happy to have found this place!! Dal Duca, is perfectly located in the heart of
beautiful Vigevano. We were two couples traveling together, and this was like our own apartament. Rooms are beautifully made, great linens and towels, as all amenities.
Bathrooms are of good size and extremely neat. We truly enjoyed the living room, where we had our happy hours, and enjoyed the delicious breakfast; loved fresh pastries. They get them from the most exclusive place. Dal Duca made us feel at home.It has all you need!! Enjoy going there!!

We couldn't have asked for more from our two day stay at Dal Duca. From the moment we walked in - the beautiful rooms, the lovely fresh clean smell and the high quality extras - we knew it would be a great stay. The next morning only added to the experience, when we were treated to a delicious buffet breakfast, that covered everything (and more) we could possibly want to get us started for the day.
Dal Duca is very highly recommended, particularly for family groups as you can rent out the two rooms and effectively have the place to yourself. Clara is also a wonderful host who was keen to accomodate our needs.
Vigevano is a great place to stay, not only to see the place itself (beautiful square and great local restaurant, Rococo) but as a base from which to visit Milano (easy 30min train trip away),
Great value for money and we will certainly use again.

This is the kind of place that you find and don't want to post anything on TA about it because you want to keep it a little secret for yourself--but that wouldn't be fair to the owners or to our fellow travelers. So here you go: book this wonderful b&b right now without hesitation, and there's no way in the world you will be disappointed. How's that for an endorsement. What makes this so wonderful? It's a two-bedroom b&b which is perfect if you're traveling in a small group, because you essentially get a two-bedroom flat with a little kitchen and sitting area to use. The decoration is tasteful, and everything is IMMACULATELY clean. What can you think of that might make your stay more comfortable? A shaving kit with a razor and shaving gel? Check. Screens on the windows? Check. Extra clean, fluffy pillows in the armoire? Check. The owners live in the same building and are so incredibly friendly and kind. We were leaving at 6:15 am to catch a flight in Milan. Clara offered not once, not twice but THREE times to get up early and make us breakfast and coffee before we left at this ungodly hour (and that morning was a holiday in Italy--when's the last time you offered to get up before sunrise on a holiday to help anyone do anything?), and even though we convinced her not to come in and make us coffee, etc. in the morning, she still left us little bags tied with red ribbon filled with various sweet and savory croissants and pastries to take with us and eat on our way to the airport. The apartment is within easy walking distance of everything you'd want to see and do in Vigevano. This small and lovely town is surprisingly lively: we were there for only a few hours one evening on a holiday, and we experienced a beer and food festival inside the castle complex where friendly teenagers let us share a picnic table with them and saw two cover bands which were both fantastic--one was doing ska covers of Michael Jackson and Nirvana which sounds strange, but it worked. People were dancing around in the streets with abandon. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
