Authentic and relaxing
The grounds are large, and have mature trees and hedges, it seems historic in the landscape as well as the house. It’s a bit rough for a semi handicap person to only have bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, so just be sure this works for you.
Ospiti molto piacevoli.
Grazie per la recensione
I bagni sono tutti e due al primo piano, come le camere.
A very relaxing stay.
The grounds are beautiful and the pool fantastic. The house is well appointed with antiques. Friendly with a family feeling.
This is much more and better than advertised. A beautiful villa in a quaint Italian village. The house is large, the gardens beautiful, the pool refreshing.
I hope to see all your beautiful family another time
Superlative Stay in Bibbiano
Our stay in this villa was just superb. The property exceeded all our expectations.. Spacious grounds, well equipped in every sense, wonderful 2 century old house full of artistic touches. The house also served as our base to visit a Parmesan cheese factory, a prosciutto (Parma ham) factory, a Balsamico vinegar factory, the Ferrari museum near Modena, the city of Parma and Bologna.
When back at the villa we could enjoy the pool, ping pong, playing cards and games etc.
I highly recommend this villa to any visitor to region of Emilia-Romana.
Phenomenal house and grounds
We had an absolutely lovely experience in Barco. Staying here felt like living in an EM Forster movie as the house is enormous, filled with art, and from the 19th century in design and solid construction.The grounds are showstopping and expansive. Surrounding the mansion are separate large areas of the gated compound: a field for football, a large area with a lovely pool surrounded by shade-giving trees with a gazebo and relaxation house, an additional grass-filled courtyard by the house (with separate door to street), a lovely garden equipped with tables and chairs filled with huge old trees including a gorgeous (blooming) pomegranate tree. At night, the gardens are full of fireflies. The kitchen is well stocked enough to entertain at least 14 people. There are three bedrooms and two of the bedrooms are connected by a living room suite which makes it ideal for a family with younger children. It was easy to do laundry and run the dishwasher. The only caveats are that there is no air conditioning outside the two main bedrooms which makes it difficult for the kids in the kids' room to sleep (there are no window screens to keep out mosquitoes) and the house is a old, so opening/closing shutters/windows was a bit sticky.
Thanks for the nice description! We will try to improve even more!
lovely Italian home
My family stayed in this house while I was coaching a team competing in the Tricolore games in Reggio Emilia. I personally didn't stay here and my review is essentially feedback from my family. I did go to the property one day to have lunch with my family was amazed by the place.
What a treat to stay in a home like this. It was like going back in time to a different era. The artwork and furniture is beautiful and you don't see construction like this anymore at least in the United States. The garden is gorgeous and the trees are absolutely amazing. It's a bit longer of a drive into Reggio Emilia than I thought, but once on property it's like you are in another time and place. It's perfect for families especially with children. My kids enjoyed the ping pong table, the table soccer and the pool. Italy is a irreplaceable destination on this planet and I recommend staying in this house if you are in the area.
