About Alessandra Schieppati

Alessan­dra Schiep­pati, jour­nal­ist with a great pas­sion for nature and ani­mals, after a career in com­mu­ni­ca­tion, since April 2011 is work­ing full-time in the old 1600 stone farm­house B&B Vacation rental Borgo di Vigoleno® on Pia­cenza Apen­nines, a special place, at 500 meters from the medieval Castle of Vigoleno where the days are marked by the rhythms of country life, the care of animals, vineyard and garden, following the seasons and the rhythm of nature.

Alessandra Schieppati purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Alessandra Schieppati chose Cremona

A world of enchantment which, intentionally, I'm trying to keep original because the human soul needs nourishment of noble memories to continue its journey toward modernity.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Borgo di Vigoleno® it’s not only the per­fect choice for peo­ple want­ing a gen­uine grass-roots ital­ian expe­ri­ence, it takes you through medieval vil­lages, his­toric sites, softly rolling hills and superb meals and vine. You have all the independence of a self catering accommodation but with a friendly Inn service and assistance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enchanting stone house in an idyllic setting. We arrived very late at night to be received by our host Alessandra. Candles lit the way through the entry, the stairs and our rooms and comfortable beds. A basket of breakfast items ready for us for the first morning. We awoke each morning to enjoy again and again the lovely views into the valley and up the mountain. An excellent base from which to explore the immediate area (medieval castles, little villages, excellent restaurants) or trips further afield. Each day Alessandra made suggestions for places to visit and delighted in us enjoying this tranquil and undiscovered little part of Italian paradise.

The Land of Castles!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 10 days in Vigoleno,in this 1600’s house, nestled in the Duchy of Parma & Piacenza. The place was adorable and there was nothing you could not find. Our host, Alexandra, was there for everything we needed or wanted to know and we got to understand her love and care of her horses. The area has 24 castles and we challenge everybody to try and see them all...we were not able to do it as there was just too much to see. Our camera run out of space but we have wonderful memories! Thanks Alexandra for sharing with us your wonderful world. Best wishes from both of us.

Enchanting Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Despite our late night arrival Alessandra was warm and welcoming. The living space was beautifully prepared for our very short stay. The property is well taken care of and peaceful. We ventured to a couple of small towns nearby on Alessadra's recommendation and had a wonderful time experiencing true Italian culture. We had 2 young girls with us who could have sat in the garden and watched the horses all day, but we dragged them up to the castle (2 minute drive) where they were blown away by the view. I prefer Italy this way. Quiet town where you run into a local wedding, speak with the church's priest for hours, get invited to view the inner-workings of local restaurants, and head back to Alessandra's to feel at home in a place you wish you could stay for years, not just days or weeks. For a more practical review of the property I will say that everything worked as it should and for the first time in my Italy travels the beds were not hard as rocks which made for a restful sleep. We're going back for a longer stay hopefully within the year.

Piece of Paradise in Italy

  • 5 of 5
This tranquil place set amongst beautiful rolling hills was the prfect place for our family. Kept in original condition, it is true to its Italian roots. The host is a delight and can point out wonderful places to see, eat and drink int he region. It is located an easy drive to the Cinque Terre coast, an easy, hassle free train ride to Milan, and so many other delightful towns nearby. You would kick yourself if you missed out staying in real Italy.

Location and hospitality was amazing.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the farm house. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and very pleased with our holiday location. The house is packed with history and very cozy. The bedrooms were large with lots of character. The views of the Italian hills were breathtaking as well. Alessandra is an excellent host and was very help full. We will be telling anyone we know who is traveling to the region about this little gem.

thanks again Alessandra for the wonderful time!

Charming and great gateway

  • 5 of 5
This is a gorgeous, peaceful and charming surprise. It's a perfect place to discover a beautiful area with day trips: cities, towns and castles, really a lot of things to visit! The apartment was clean, confortable and with beds of a very good quality: a fusion of the old and the new with many personal touches that make it feel like at home. The garden offers extra speace with a marvelous views of the valley and pastures. The owner Alessandra is very nice and frendly. I highly recommended it.
