It is impossible to over-praise our stay at La Barchessa. The accommodation itself in this bucolic oasis is perfect for a couple - beautifully appointed, packed full with useful information from Stefano and, something by no means a given with holiday lets, blessed with a well-equipped kitchen - even sharp knives! Outside is a wonderful secret garden in which we spent many hours sunbathing, and a lovely non-chlorinated pool to cool off in. Everything has been very carefully and considerately thought through by Stefano and Margherita - and it is those two individuals who elevate a wonderful stay at La Barchessa from the merely excellent to the extraordinary. They are delightful, witty, intelligent people, and it was an enormous privilege to have met and spent time with them. They also knew exactly how to strike the right balance between socialising with us and leaving us in privacy. Truly a holiday that will live long in the memory.
A great choice
Ideally located to access rail and road links to explore this beautiful region of Emelia Romagna. La Barchessa is an oasis to relax in, to enjoy the beautiful grounds, the rose gardens, so much wildlife - Bird song, red squirrels, cookoos, hares, hawks, deer, Willy the heron & his friend coming into feed at the fish pools, sunsets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, leaving was a bit sad & saying good bye to both Stefano and Margherita who are such good hosts, very helpful and very kind.
Peaceful, warm and friendly
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the renovated barn in Quattro Castella. Our hosts, Stefano and Margherita were absolutely wonderful, giving great recommendations and even offering a welcome aperitif. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and the surrounding vineyards provide a great secluded and peaceful feeling. Yet it is only a short distance to great restaurants and places of interest. We highly recommend this place.

Stefano & Margherita
Great accomations. Wonderful and helpfull landlords
Country setting, all the amenities.
A wonderful week of fine weather in the company of our favourite property owners.
Our second stay at the property was a repeat success. The situation is lovely, with easy access through the vineyards. The house itself is comfortably appointed, in a charmingly old-fashioned way, but with all the necessary amenities. We still had much that was new to us to explore in the surrounding countryside and towns. Stefano and Margherita are wonderful hosts, and their command of English means that they are always able to provide helpful advice.
although you had again a very busy week visiting around we hope you did not
go through all of it so that we may see you again in the future.
Stefano & Margherita
This was the ideal place to experience Emilia Romagna. Perfect for day trips. The accommodations were perfect, country beautiful and charming. Clean, private and very comfortable. The hosts were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this property.
30 minutes from Parma, Fontanellato, Colorno. 20 minutes from Reggio Emilia, Correggio. 40 minutes to Modena and Sabbioneta. 60 minutes to Mantua and Bologna. Many things to sight-see in the padan plain. A forgotten by tourists Italy. Where mythology wants Apollo's son crashing into the Eridano river (now Pò) and the sisters turned into poplar trees. Here Dante and Petrarca came to meditate on the stone of Bismantova. Here renaissance moved its first steps at the courts of the Gonzaga and of the Este. Here are landscapes painted by Correggio, Mantegna, Parmigianino. From here great painting collections mooved to Hampton Court with Charles Ist, or to Dresda with Albert the strong leaving empy the palaces of Mantua and Modena. Here where the first Mediaeval known artist (Antelami) brought up his cathedrals in Parma, Modena and Fidenza. Here where you can have a real taste of Parmisan, culatello or prosciutto di Parma, drink fizzy Lambrusco and eat real tortellini. You should be here.
