My husband, our 4-month daughter and I visited Italy in May, 2013. We stayed in Villino di Porporano where we received quality accommodation and service. The B&B itself was very well presented, nicely decorated and extremely well looked after. The rooms were clean, tidied up every day and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was varied and the homemade food was of good quality. The owner, Elena, was extremely helpful with everything, e.g., she had made sure there was a travel cot with linen in our bedroom for our daughter, advices on places to go to for dinner and made reservations for us, she'd even take our daughter from us whilst we were having breakfast and show her around the beautiful house. Thus, Villino di Porporano is a truly family oriented B&B. Location wise it was perfect for as because we based ourselves in/near Parma and then drove to Bologna, Florence, Cinqueterre, Verona. There was a big supermarket short 5min drive from the cottage where we'd get wine and then go back and relax in Villino in the evening. Overall, if you are looking for a boutique Italian experience do visit Parma and Villino di Porporano!
- 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
