“a country gem”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Being in the country and close to Parma was the reason my husband and I chose this B&B. Ilaria made us very welcome. Because she spoke english well we were able to get information of the area and directions. Our room was spacious & comfortable. It was a very hot day and not being used to the heat of Italy we missed having air conditioning. On our request, Ilaria arranged a visit to a cheese factory where we were able to watch the processes in the production of the Pamigiano-Reggiano Cheeses. This was a highlight of our visit to this region. We were able to walk down the country road about a 100meteres to a Ristorante Pizzeria which was popular with the locals and served a variety of meals.

Thank you for your kind review! It is always a pleasure to have guests who are so genuinely interested in our local offer of art, food and history.
Thanks to your questions I also had the opportunity to refine and update my knowledge about some main museums’ opening times, and to get to know an off-period open factory for the food tour – which can be so absurdly hard to organise sometimes for the lack of offer of regular guided tours, especially for a small number of visitors, on the part of our local traditional food processing factories.
It was also a pleasure to get to know more about a Country so far away from us as yours!
