Suggestive and ancient tower surrounded by the green hills and vineyards of the Vezzeno Valley, Villa Gavazzini is a building from the 1400s transformed into a charming historic home and a cozy bed and breakfast.
Villa Gavazzini History
Lying on the first hills of the verdant Val Vezzeno, Villa Gavazzini represents a small medieval jewel brought back to its original splendor. Today it is presented as a refined period residence that offers its guests rich experiences of charm, tranquility, nature, art and history, all associated with a careful and discreet hospitality.
A perfect place for those seeking peace and contact with nature but also loves to indulge in modern comforts: the rooms, (8 rooms and 1 junior suite in the tower of XV century), preserve the old atmosphere and are furnished with care and attention in the details in a unique and original way. Those located on the ground floor overlook the green surrounding hills, while those on the first floor open onto the panoramic terrace, from which you can enjoy breathtaking views and enjoy the colors of the sunset.
After an organic breakfast at zero km, with coffee, croissants and fresh bread with homemade jams, the day dedicated to relax begins, to discover the surrounding territories and the typical flavors of Val Vezzeno. Among mountain biking itineraries, walks, horse trails or tasting tours of the products of Piacenza you will be spoiled for choice.
You can explore the countryside and the evocative gorges of the Vezzeno river, discover Velleia Romana (a village called the "Pompei of Northern Italy") with its theater and its baths, the landscape of the Val Chero hills, the Castle of Gropparello, the medieval village of Castell'Arquato, or visit the towns of Busseto, which gave birth to Giuseppe Verdi, Parma, Piacenza or Cremona.
