    (7 reviews)

    Friendly family business
    Beautiful large garden
    Balsamic tasting on site

Il Borgo del Balsamico is a B&B with seven rooms and an independent apartment, in a beautiful 18th -century house very centrally located in the Italian region of Emilia- Romagna, not far from the cultural and culinary gems Parma, Modena, and Bologna.

It is a family business, where the warm hostess and owner, Cristina, will make you feel completely at home. Her parents and sister are also involved in the business. The domain was designed years ago to produce balsamic vinegar, which the region is known for, and this is still an important activity of the family. On the attic of the B&B are dozens of barrels of balsamic vinegar with a delicious fragrance. Here you can get a free guided tour where you learn how balsamic vinegar is made and make a tasting!

A stay at Il Borgo del Balsamico includes breakfast, the use of the swimming pool, and the beautiful Italian-style garden, where you can stroll among sweet-smelling flowers and catch a glimpse of a single hare or deer.

The seven warm and spacious rooms plus the apartment are furnished with a stylish mix of vintage design pieces and art. The interior style stems from the passion of the owners for antiques and modern vintage furniture. The different styles create a very personal and attractive ambiance.

Located in the captivating traditional region of Emilia-Romagna, with a variety of culinary, cultural and outdoor activities in the area, Il Borgo del Balsamico is the perfect base for families and couples who want to enjoy peace and privacy but with plenty of exciting day trips at their fingertips.

It only takes 10 minutes to drive to the station where the train will bring you in 15 minutes to Bologna, Parma, and Modena and within an hour to Milan and Florence. So, also in spring and autumn, this B&B is a fantastic place for an Italian adventure!
