Pleasant stay during late November
We enjoyed a short but very pleasant stay. Location is good for visiting the area and the owners are very helpful and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed the nice breakfast including freshly baked morning cake. My kids very much enjoyed having the 2 dogs and a cat around too.
Rafael and Alessandra were both very helpful which made my stay a pleasure. They changed their schedules to accommodate my work schedule and for that I am appreciative.
Thank you it was a pleasure to welcome you
Once in a life time opportunity I want to do again and again!
Alessandra and Raffaele welcomed my wife and me into their beautifully restored home --and the wonderful experiences soon began. During the days we were expertly directed to the best of Reggio Emilia sights and adventures. But the true value of this stay was to be had in front of the fire in the dining room; the family shared of themselves in a truly remarkable way, food was superb and conversation fun and stimulating -and in English for our benefit. Dogs were "active", which we loved; if that would be a problem I am sure you could asked for them to be put away during your stay. I didn't remember that breakfast would be provided in the posting that I responded to, however it was and it was excellent. Dinner may be requested, on our visit it was the best of seasonal garden offerings and a good value. Any future trip to Italia must include a stay at the "house of plums".
Thank you so much for the wonderful words, it is a pleasure to share our home and time with you .... even your Turkish pizza! 😂.
we hope there are other opportunities!
An incredible historic farmhouse in the heart of Reggio-Emilia, with amazing hospitality
Such a beautiful home! Built hundreds of years ago and recently restored by Rafael and Alessandra. So many wonderful antiques and a fascinating library of old books that Rafael showed me. And many of the floors and features of the house are original!
This is a charming, peaceful, country home in the heart of Reggio-Emilia, with some amazing restaurants just minutes away. Also, the ancient town of Sabbionetta, which Raffael recommended is just a short drive.
Rafael and Alessandra were incredible, greeting us with cappuccinos by a blazing fire after we drove through a terrible storm, some wine and local Parmesan with housemade mustarda and green tomato jam. They gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation for dinner. And the next morning we awoke to a homemade breakfast... chestnuts on an open fire, homemade Italian pancakes, scrambled eggs and fresh squeezed blood orange juice and fresh baked pastries.
To say that Rafael and Alessandra are hospitable is an understatement. They go above and beyond. I only wish we could have stayed longer! You will not be disappointed if you stay at the House of Plums. A once in a life time experience.
Thank you so so much!
A fabulous country/farm experience with an extraordinary family!
"House of Plums" graciously accommodated our traveling band of 5 women with spacious room accommodations and an authentic country experience.
Raffaele had such patience... helping with directions, answering zillions of questions and even taking us to a weekend country market fair.
His beautiful wife Alessandra made scrumptious breakfasts (Raffaele had "latte" duty) while 7 yr old Luca practiced his English.
After breakfast we departed to nearby Parma for sightseeing but we always looked forward to returning to the warm hospitality found at "House of Plums".
For us it was a real pleasure to host you!
