Via Nino Bixio, 4 - LANGHIRANO (PR)
Whether you are travelling for work or leisure, at Villa Alda you will find a home from home:
a pleasant break in an elegant and peaceful location, a stone’s throw from Parma but
just far away enough to enjoy the tranquillity and lush greenery of Parma’s gentle hills.
With stunning grounds, Villa Alda is located in Langhirano, in the heart of Italy’s Food
Valley, where the fresh air ensures that the mouth-watering Prosciutto di Parma cured ham
is unique of its kind worldwide.
The Villa is managed by its owners, who live here and ensure that its original beauty is
maintained intact. The part given over to hospitality has a separate entrance and a lift to
allow guests to use the premises with complete independence and the utmost convenience. At
Villa Alda, in the midst of history, castles, rivers, vineyards and good food and wine, you
will enjoy the best of everything Parma has to offer, and all that has made it renowned worldwide.
The residence has double rooms with bathrooms, and it is also possible to add
a third bed. One room offering the use of a kitchen is available.
The rooms are all bright and stylishly furnished. Each has a style and personality
of its own which conveys a familiar and welcoming feel, ensuring your stay is
even more pleasant. The bathrooms have windows and are new and spacious, and all
have showers and offer the highest standards of comfort. Each room has Wi-Fi,
satellite TV, air conditioning and a mini-bar.
Breakfast at Villa Alda is a delight to get your day off to the best possible start.
Breakfast is served in the taverna room, or on the B&B level, and serves up wholesome
products and plenty of local delicacies: jams, mouth-watering cakes, ham, homemade
bread and much more besides.
Parma’s Apennines are packed with historical and natural attractions, not to mention fine food and wine.
Torrechiara Castle, one of Italy’s most beautiful walled hamlets, is just a few minutes from
Villa Alda. Set atop a hill from which it dominates the entire valley, the castle has been
used as the set for famous films such as Ladyhawke and Condottieri. Inside it still retains
Medieval and Renaissance elements of artistic and historical interest.
Castles are not the only attraction in the area … Langhirano is very near to the Parco dei
Cento Laghi natural park, where wonderful day trips await both in winter and summer.
And of course there is the food, which will take centre stage during your stay here. In
this area you will find all the very best specialities of our area: Prosciutto di Parma cured ham,
Salame Felino salami, Coppa di Parma cured pork, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. You can
also visit wine cellars and sample typical local wines: the mouth-watering, sparkling Malvasia,
Lambrusco and Fortana wines.
Villa Alda is just a few kilometres from Parma; you will be able to pop into town
to visit its churches, squares, museums and theatres, or spend an evening at the table
of one of Parma’s delightful trattorie in the historic quarter, whenever you like.
