How would you describe Villa di Parma in a nutshell?
Villa di Parma is a magical place. The house was built in 1840 and two aunts sisters originally owned it. My family took care of them and when they passed away, they left the house to our care. My brother and I are now the fourth generation to live here. We work to maintain the family history and share the pleasantness of this place with the world.
The vacation villa is in the middle of a large park on top of a hill. It’s listed as a cultural heritage site. It’s a very original place in terms of the nature surrounding it, the architecture, and its style. The food and local recipes are excellent. The mix of those factors makes it charming.
To you personally, what makes Villa di Parma special?
The magic of nature surrounding you. Sometimes in summer, the sky becomes really pink and the water of the swimming pool reflects that colour. It’s incredible.
When you are here, you don’t need anything. You can explore nature, be in the garden, go swimming, have dinner on the terrace, and in one hour you can be on the beach by the sea.
To me, it is a symbol of the story of my family, and it is a memorial to my father. He is the real founder of this project and the restructuring of the villa. He told me that he created the place for me to share with other people. The villa is more beautiful with people in it.
