Placed in the heart of a vast park just a few kilometers away from the city of Reggio Emilia, the guesthouse, owned by a family of fashion designers converted since some years into the production of artisanal balsamic vinegar DOC, is a charming residence whose authentic character has been preserved. You will appreciate the villa for its peaceful location, its enchanting setting, its friendly and refined atmosphere. One can enjoy a walk in the beautiful park or just relax by the swimming-pool placed in the heart of the italianate garden. A buffet breakfast made of local products is served in the breakfast room opening onto the garden. After breakfast, the owners can take you for a guided tour of the old vinegar acetaia installed in the attic and show you the various making steps of the traditional balsamic vinegar. At the end of the tour, youll enjoy a tasting experience.
The ideal location of the villa, halfway between the cities of Parma and Modena, will allow you to discover the historical and cultural cities of Bologna, Mantova, Ferrara, the castles of the Duchy as well as the culinary heritage of Emilia-Romagna known worldwide for the production of Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar and the Tortellini.
The 8 rooms, spread over 2 houses, are tastefully decorated with antique furniture, contemporary art objects and family souvenirs. The owners, creators in the 1970s of the "Maska" brand, brought their personal touch and made the decoration of each room unique. All of them are equipped with bathroom, hair-dryer, wifi connection, fan and enjoy nice views on the park.
The rooms, located on the 1st floor, in the stone house have a more countryside spirit. In the living-room, one can find a frigo-bar and the herbal tea corner. On the first floor, there is also a spacious apartment with an independent entrance, 2 double bedrooms, one of which opens onto the living/dining room, an equipped kitchen and a bathroom. For fashion enthusiasts, a collection of Vogue magazines from the 70's to 80's is exposed in the library.
The elegant villa, located opposite the stone house, features 4 spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Original photos of the Maska brand collections taken by R. Erdman and fashion sketches adorn the walls of the rooms. With their large ogival windows overlooking the park, original parquet flooring, high ceilings, each of them has a unique character and a particular atmosphere. Some rooms of the villa may be more exposed to noise from the small road that runs along the estate.
