Situated in the Emilia Romagna region of north central Italy, the city of Parma is a beautiful city with much to see and do.

It was thoughtfully furnished and very well maintained, with comfortable beds, good bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. It's located in a quiet residential area with a bar and pasticceria nearby. Parking directly outside was no problem and the location was very convenient for Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Bologna (easy to reach on the train from Parma if you don't want to drive). Communication with Raffaella was very friendly and professional. She gave a very warm welcome, showed us how everything worked, recommended local restaurants and even made an appointment for us. We liked Ristorante Pizzeria Zefiro and Tramonti (Botteghino). Trattoria Ai Due Platani looked very good, but was fully booked. Maybe next time!

The flat had everything we needed, and we were particularly grateful to be able to wash some clothes. Leonardo was so kind to pick us up from the bus terminal, and to our surprise Rosa had left us a tiramasu, which was absolutely delicious!! It's good to note that there are lots of steps, and it will take about 20 minutes to walk into the main town centre. We highly recommend staying at Rosa and Leonardo's great flat and would love to come back again some day.
