Two words about the village and the castle: built in the thirteenth century on the ruins of an ancient Roman agricultural settlement, Castle Lisignano is a good example of the process, from the end of the Renaissance, has seen the transformation of the feudal castles fortress-like in country residences for noble families.

The construction is similar to an isolated fortress, surrounded by a moat with a drawbridge. During the late seventeenth century, the castle interiors have been changed for the life of the new nobility. The renovation, designed by Ferdinando Galli, also known as Bibbiena (Bologna), are found on the east side of the courtyard, covered with frescoes and architectural elements that open onto an arched courtyard, while in the south there is a small grove natural whose centerpiece is a large statue of Hercules killing the lion.

We were overjoyed when we arrived to see the lovely accommodations and the beautiful setting...The property and apartment were pristine.

It is situated in a very quiet bucolic area but the towns and villages

are nearby with lovely restaurants, churches and shops.

After a day out exploring, it was wonderful coming "home"

to such a welcoming place.

The owner, Alessandra, is everything you would expect in a person

who owned such an exceptional property... warm, friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend the farms of Lisignano to friends and would like to return ourselves.

Le lieu idéal

  • 5 of 5

Dans un environnement calme et reposant, une location optimale pour passer un séjour très agréable. Appartement idéalement situé pour profiter des beautés de la plaine padane comme de celles des collines et vallées des contreforts des Apennins. Alessandra a partagé avec nous son amour du terroir, de l'histoire et des richesses culturelles de Lisignano et des environs. Une location idéale pour les voyageurs qui ne se contentent pas d'être touristes.

Wonderful and peaceful stay in Lisignano

  • 5 of 5

We have a wonderful stay in Lisignano. The house was a same as we saw before on the picture. Full furnished and in a very good condition. The countryside was amazing, we have visited different castles, churches and small towns. We have enjoyed to drink a cappucino in the morning in the local bars in Agazzona. And we have also shopped in Fidenza and Serravalle Scrivia.

In the evening we made a small tour through Lisignano and we have spoken with the local people.

Alessandra has showed us the castle and talked with a lot of love about herbplace of birth and the very friendly people from Emalia.

Alessandra, thanks a lot and we hope to see you again one of the next years because we have to visit still different small towns.
