Welcome to the B&B accommodation in the small village of Scipione
Italy’s beauties are often underrated. If you are looking for a relaxing and amenable place to stay over the weekend or for a day off you can find it nestled amongst the Parma hills that stretch out across the northern Apennines. Just less than 70 miles far from Milan away, in an area steeped in history where it is like stepping back in time, a medieval small village is looked over by the castle of marquises Pallavicino.Over the years, one of the houses of the medieval village has been made over by Laura and Massimo into a charming lodging tucked away in the trees, which conjures up the pleasant old spirit of the rural life of the region of Emilia.
Their love for this place has led Laura and Massimo to transform it into a personal home and share these hidden beauties with the people who are going to visit it and pass on to their friends the beauties of the region: its nature, its history, its heritage and also its wines and food.
You will have a chance to wake up in a silent and peaceful place where the only noises are the chime of the tower bell and the chirp of birds. Besides, you can enjoy the peacefulness of the garden or sit by the fireplace, go for a walk, have a bike or a horse ride on country roads and in the woods, visit the many castles of the area, have a relaxing bath in the warm salt-bromo-iodic spa water of Salsomaggiore with a very special Liberty-style feel to it and end your day with a delicious dinner made up of Parma ham, culatello, truffles, mushrooms and the traditional handmade tasty pastries.
