“A Special Experience”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We recently took a 10 day trip to Italy. Our stay centered around Villa Tre Angeli. This B&B in Bedonia (South of Parma) is run by Giancarlo (Manny) and his lovely wife Valerie Raffetto Manfredini. Manny grew up locally while Valerie is originally from Spring Lake, NJ. Their home is a classic Italian house. The comfortable bedrooms include en suite bath rooms with a tub or shower. Breakfast is provided each morning and dinner on the night of arrival. Valerie is a terrific cook; ask for her lasagna!! One of the things that makes the experience is the convenience provided in touring the area. They picked us up at the Milan airport and drove us to Bedonia. Then virtually every day one of them would drive us to one or two spots we wanted to visit. The ability to custom design our tours was a real treat. They have contacts at interesting local locations e.g. a Parmesan cheese factory, a Prosciutto di Parma facility, a Sunday dance for locals etc.. In addition they took us to castles, Lucca, Porto Venere, the Cinque Terre, Milan etc.. All of this while staying in and wondering around a real non-touristy town with restaurants within walking distance.
If you want to get a taste of the real Italy, this is the way to do it.

Loved it! Loved the room. It was pretty and very comfortable. The bathroom was private and brand new. Breakfast in the morning had plenty of goodies but the best part was the cappicino and the warm embrace we received by the owners. We loved the outdoor piaza! We were taken on wonderful tours and saw sights that only the "real" Italians know about. We can't wait to go back to Villa Tre Angeli again!

The Manfredini's operate a B and B in the mountain town of Bedonia, Italy. They are English and Italian speaking as are their 3 teenaged children. In addition to offering accomodations and breakfast, the Manfredini's also offer guided tours to various surronding spots such as Cinque Terre (5 small towns on the nw coast of Italy), Lake Como, Parma and Milan. Arrangements are best made prior to the visit.
The town of Bedonia is a small and quaint place with a number of bars and restaurants that villa guests can walk to a few minutes away. The villa is an older building that has been nicely rehabed and decorated by he Manfredi's. There are a total of 6 suites, some of which have cooking facilities, but there is no ac or English stations on the TV.
The Villa Tre Angeli is ideal for those desiring a reasonably priced vacation in a spot that isn't teeming with tourists.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so a lower floor is desirable.

This is our 3rd year of traveling around countries we visit to really see firsthand how people leave and to get the sense of a authentic country. Tre Angeli was a perfect example of a beautiful Italian family running a small business of hosting (random) people traveling through Italy to experience Italy's beauty and warmth. Valerie and her husband gave us welcome we could not even expect and showed us interesting place right where they live - so much to see and appreciate. We saw a small beautiful chateu, amazing cheese factory, wonderful Portofino resort and historic Genoa. What was precious is all the personal stories Giancarlo told us, which made all the sights so much more precious and appreciated. When you visit and have a chance to take a day trips to places Valerie offers to see, do not hesitate - worth lifelong memories.
As B&B itself, antique charm in the Italian country-side: colonial style villla with antique rustic furnishing is fully equipped for short or longer stay - kitchen, washing machine, comfy beds and beautiful interiors. Breakfast served by Valerie and Giancarlo is wholesome and delicious - they were sweet enough to care about my kids' allergies ( you do it get it everywhere). The town itself is a perfect example of a tight small community, which treasures the ambience of the town - we saw a small fest literally attended by all town imhabitants and it was a wonderful feeling of cherishing the community. You cannot get this in any big city! So all in all, go, see, try the taste of Italy - people are terrific!!!

We returned home last night with so many wonderful memories from our time with you. We so much appreciate all you did to make our time in Bedonia so much fun. All the special things you did for us are forever remembered and appreciated.
Your many email conversations and your phone calls to discuss our desired activities were a great help in assuring a wonderful time was had by all! Great meals,your helpful hints and times around the table with your family made us feel welcome a gave us a real sense of lift in a small Italian village.
Each of the day trips was gave us more opportunities to learn a culture and meet people not possible without your help.
I think we all agreed we are small town folks and our time in Bedonia was great. Please say hello to Mannie and the kids for us. Again, thank you for all the help in planning our time with you and especially all the family "reunion"events for Mary Ann!!!! As she said over and over, "the trip of a life time".

From the moment I was greeted at the train station, I was made to feel at home in this quaint, out of the way, town. My hosts, Val and Manny, were excellent. Val took me to some of the most authentic places and experiences, while Manny served as a great guide on my bike rides (he was on a scooter while I climbed the most amazing mountain passes!). If you are looking to get away from the hustle bustle of the tourist traps and spend a few days in an authentic Italian town, Bedonia fits the bill and Villa Tre Angeli is the perfect place to stay. The rooms were small but well equipped, but frankly by the time I was ready to hit my room I was so tired from an amazing day I really didn't notice that much. Highly recommend!!!
