Rustic overnight in the Parma area

Posted Apr 22, 2018
We stayed at the hotel overnight as a stopover between Verona and the cinque terre. The location of the hotel is very good and impressive atop the hill with the castle. The sunset view from the church nearby was stunning! The hotel itself is relatively average; it feels a bit dated and cold. We stayed in a deluxe room which was pretty basic, other than the view from the main room and the bathroom. A very annoying buzzing noise came from the electrical switch which was pretty painful! We had dinner at the restaurant which was fine, nothing spectacular. Nothing too bad, and fine for an overnight but wouldn’t stay there much longer.

Castle Experience

Posted Dec 1, 2017
Driving to Antico Borgo di Tabiano castle is not easy: it is near Parma, but from Parma almost an hour drive , especially the road to the castle, definitely not high way. But it is definitely worth the driving because of beautiful scenery, and castle looks grand. It is unique to stay in the castle, and staffs are friendly and efficient. Dinner is excellent .

Room in a Castle

Posted Oct 1, 2017
Pros: Fabulous location, great room, very helpful staff and of course Brutus the dog! Location of the hotel is about 20 minutes drive away from nearest town
Cons: We would have liked a slightly larger choice on the menu
Location: Lots of castles, cities, museums, galeries, shopping and countryside.
We stayed in a suite in the Castle, with a great view over the countryside, the room was warm (even had a real fireplace that could be used in winter) and cosy. The room and bathroom (which had a whirlpool bath) were very clean. Staff were very helpful advising on where to visit and we loved meetinng Brutus (the dog) and Luigi (the peacock). We only stayed 2 nights should have been longer! We enjoyed breakfast and dinner, the hotel uses local and seasonal products where possible. The menu in the restaurant was not extensive and we enjoyed the dishes we tried.

Fascinating 12th century castle.

Had a great 2 days. Bear in mind it is an old castle & a bit difficult to get around in places. Rooms quite small & we had a suite.

Fantastic hotel much better than the photos show

Posted May 14, 2017
We were offered an upgrade into a beautiful suite, the swimming pool was spotless , the views incredible. The breakfast room is one of the nicest spaces I have ever eaten in and the food was terrific. The website photos do not do the castle justice had only booked a night but would have happily stayed forever! Thank you for making is so welcome Wonderful dog too!
