For us, the Villino did not quite live up to the expectations created by other reviews. The house is superb. The attention to detail in the interior design is second to none. Our bedroom was elegant with a charming ensuite, a beautiful haven to return to. The Villino's position, however, was not what we hoped for, essentially a nondescript suburb of Parma.
Sadly, Elena seemed a bit distracted while we were there, with her mind on other things. We walked to the restaurant she recommended. but it was closed. Disappointing, and clearly a different experience from that of other reviewers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Just a few kilometres from the centre of Parma, in the small, homely village of Porporano, a young couple devised and organised this place of delightful rest. Next to the main villa, in the garden grounds, springs an old rural cottage, built in solid stone brick with a hayloft above. This simple country site has been transformed into a charming cottage for guests; 5 rooms with en suite bathroom, communal area, a large kitchen, spacious veranda protected by glass which separates it from the enchanting green. Keeping the atmosphere of times gone by with its rough walls spaced out with blocks of pebble stone in place of bricks and the dimension of the hayloft which still astonishes those who enter; the rooms where the rough wooden floor gives harmony to the colours. The owners have furnished each room carefully and with passion: with iron headboards and delicately embroidered curtains and tapestry in thick linen, once forgotten in an old trunk. The cottage of Porporano, a place where hospitality is not only a profession but a style of life. ... more less
