Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Villa Bianca del Castellaro is a historic and sophisticated private country dwelling built in 1840, nestled in the green hills around Parma in the small village of Sala Baganza, on the border of the Regional Park Boschi di Carrega and situated just a 20-minute drive from central Parma.
Perched on the hilltop, in a position that further nourishes its uniqueness, for over a century the house has been relishing an exclusive panorama while living in harmony with the lush natural environment and the immense garden embracing it: an ideal location to relax and that offers vast horizons stretching as far as the eye can see.
The villa is divided in two independent areas so as to guarantee our guests the privacy and the peace and quiet they have come to seek, and avoid disturbing them as we go about our business in the other wing of the house.
On the first and second floor, is the sleeping area consisting of a double bedroom + a twin/double bedroom both with an en suite bathroom and with the possibility to add a third bed, and two twin/double bedrooms with a private bathroom + a room with two beds. On the ground floor, the living area comprehends a well-equipped kitchen, a guest bathroom and a large living room; with a fireplace and a grand piano, overlooking an elegant and scenic terrace perfect to enjoy breakfast, dinner or an aperitif with friends in the cool summer evenings.
Walking through the garden, adjacent to the house you will discover Villa Bianca's real surprise: the picturesque swimming pool. An 18-meter infinity edge salt water pool facing the badlands with a hot tub and an outdoor hot shower provided for by the energy-efficient paneling system of the house. The swimming pool is the most charming spot from which to appreciate sunsets enveloped by the beauty of the hills and the positive energy of nature. An exquisite place in which to let oneself be caressed by the summer breeze.
The environs of Villa Bianca have a lot to offer too. The house, with its heavenly ambience, is only apparently distant from everything and indeed as close to it all as can be. A few minutes' drive is enough to encounter the exciting walking and cycling trails as well as the numerous golf courses and spas. You will be able to visit Parma's monuments and cathedrals, the ancient castles of the area, other fascinating cities of art and also the most important producers of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Parma Ham from whom you will have a chance to buy our local products.
The excellent quality of the local cuisine has made this land famous all over the world. This is why we recommend to our guests to occasionally indulge themselves in lunch or dinner at some of the many restaurants found in this area: a unique opportunity to savor the traditional dishes and wines recognized internationally.
