This wonderful venue is a Relais inside an ancient settlement with a castle nestled among the green hills of the province of Parma.

The Castle dates back form the XI century and was built on the ruins of an old Roman settlement. It was the military stronghold of one of the most powerful noble families of the era, which dominated this strategic area during the centuries of struggle between the Imperial and Vatican forces.

What was a fortress for defense and agricultural, it has being transformed into a Resort. Thanks to a painstaking restoration of the owners it has preserved the authenticity and charm, but with all the comforts of the present; with great attention to respect for history, environmental sustainability and the links with the territory.

The medieval village and the nearby Romanesque church, its courtyards, terraces, the park and the historic homes, makes a magical and enchanted place ideal for dream weddings. Here you can celebrate with family and friends, with the exclusive use of the village and surrounding houses for a whole weekend. The open spaces and halls allow weddings with more than 300 guests in any weather and season with the possibility of accommodation for up to 180 guests.

For more intimate ceremonies you can rent the exclusive country houses with pool offering wide open spaces as covered ones.

The village also offers a catering service, bar and other organizational services on request.

It has two wellness centers; one located in a natural cave and the other in a house in the woods in the secret garden under the walls. Both are equipped with turkish bath, jacuzzi, sauna, sensory shower and relaxation area.

Each room or apartment is furnished and decorated with antique furniture, tapestries, hand-painted ceramics, terracotta floors or antique tiles. The rooms are equipped with air conditioning, flat screen TV, high speed internet and a minibar.
