We stayed at Cascina Scottina in July this year on two separate occasions.
The service and quality of the hotel make them stand out in the region. The food is simply amazing and as I suffer from a gluten intolerance, they understood my condition perfectly and even ensured that I had a gluten-free option at breakfast - with homemade gluten-free foccacia especially for me!
The rooms are spacious and elegant, whilst staying rustic and true to the building and surroundings. The staff are unfailingly friendly and professional. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely return. The previous criticism of the traffic noise is justified to an extent but we honestly didn't notice it that much and it certainly didn't keep us awake at night. For a base to visit the Piacenza region, I can't think of a better hotel to recommend than Cascina Scottina.More
