My wife, daughter and I stayed at this fantastic bed and breakfast in May 2013. We absolutely recommend it for a couple of nights on your way to Tuscany or to use as a base to explore the region as others have mentioned. Our flight into Milan arrived late in the day and we did not want to just stay at an airport hotel. Villino di Porporano is about an hour and a half from Milan Linate airport and worked perfectly for us.
We loved our room on the top floor, Le Mansarda (the Attic/Loft). It had a separate space up a few steps with a beautiful bed for our infant daughter.
The breakfast is incredible and the grounds are beautiful. Elena is a terrific host and very hospitable. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to this region of Italy.
- 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
