The décor is tastefully rural in warm colour tones, with original ceiling beams, local wooden furniture, wrought iron artefacts and antique touches here and there. As you might expect of a medieval castle, guests can pamper body and soul in the earthy spa area (with a sauna, Turkish bath, hydro-massage and various cosmetic treatments) after a long day exploring the local area (such as the spa town of Salsomaggiore with its Liberty architecture). Or why not freshen up outside in the terrace-like swimming pool, which offers a wonderfully relaxing view of the voluptuous hillsides of the Apennines between Piacenza and Parma, before retiring to the restaurant “Da Oscar” for a taste of the delicious local cuisine.

The Emilia Romagna region

EMILIA ROMAGNA - A magnificent synthesis of history, art and culture; a region known for its delicious cuisine and great hospitality; a region steeped with artistic places and places of art, medieval towns and villages, plains, mountains and the sea. All this is Emilia-Romagna. Since ancient times, it has been made up of the two separate regions Emilia and Romagna. But what has also linked these two since ancient times is their sense of beauty, their prosperity and not least their love of the good life. In 189-187 BC, the "Via Aemilia", a central route along the foot of the Apennines and still an important road link to this day, was named after the Roman consulate Marco Emilio Lepido. The whole region also took on his name: Emilia. It is made up of the provinces of Piacenza, Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Ferrara and Bologna. The entire region brims over with cultural vitality, offering a wealth of galleries, museums, libraries and important theatre, music and art festivals. Frequently called the culinary centre of Italy, it is also a magnet for gourmets and lovers of fine food. Just think of delicious tortellini, ragout, Parma ham, air-cured Culatello ham, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and mortadella - all specialities from Emilia, and especially the Parma province, loved and enjoyed the world over. The region went through a cultural heyday when Parma and Piacenza were a duchy (1545 to 1859), as the palaces of Compiano, Bardi, Torrechiara, the medieval towns and villages and the castles such as Castell'Arquato, Vigoleno, Fontanellato and Tabiano testify to this day. A visit to the Parma area, whose most famous son is Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), is an absolute must for art lovers and gourmets. The city of Parma itself captivates its guests with its Romanesque Cathedral, the Antelami's Baptistery and the National Gallery housing one of Italy's most outstanding art collections. Another essential destination is Bologna, with its intact historical centre full of countless architectural jewels and museums of all different types, with its typical magnificent red buildings and pillared entrances dotted throughout the whole city, surrounded by art and craft shops and workshops, earthy bars and cafes and markets. ## Romagna on the other hand, made up of the regions of Ravenna, Rimini and Forli-Cesena, is very much a place of the sea. Its name dates back to the fifth-century region of "Romania", indicating Ravenna's role as part of the Western Roman and Byzantine Empires. And it was the Byzantines who brought the art of mosaic design to a unique highpoint in the area, in their very individual mix of symbolism and realism. Despite the beauty of neighbouring Ravenna, visitors should not forget Rimini. In the old San Giuliano quarter, one can trace the atmosphere of days gone by, and the city itself is still haunted by the spirit of the magical filmmaker Federico Fellini, who was born here. The region also radiates a special charm along the coast between Ravenna and Cattolica. Indisputably, this stretch of coast magically attracts the most foreign tourists - no wonder, with its long, sophisticated sandy beaches and hip clubs. The many different theme parks nearby (such as Mirabilandia in Ravenna, Aquafan and Oltremare in Riccione, Fiabilandia in Rimini and the aquarium in Cattolica) are also a great attraction for families. The region really does have something very special to offer for everyone.

Salsomaggiore Terme

The surrounding area on the Apennine hills has a wealth of culinary, fashion and historical attractions to offer: medieval towns such as Vigoleno, Torrechiara, Castell’Arquato, Fontanellato, Italy’s “culinary capital” Parma and Salsomaggiore Terme with its spa and liberty architecture. Tabbiano Castle, only a kilometre away, has a good restaurant and a spa area that can be used by external visitors; and don’t forget the delicious down-to-earth cuisine of the Emilia region with its fresh food produced and grown locally. Lovers of Italian fashion will find all the sartorial delights their hearts desire in the outlet centre “Fidenza Village”, home to more than 70 stores with Italian labels at discount prices.
