The answer from the host:
Cari Giuseppe e Mody, grazie per queste splendide parole. Per chi, come me, fa questo lavoro, non hanno prezzo. E`stato un grande piacere potervi ospitare e condividere racconti e esperienze. Grazie per la cura, il garbo e il rispetto che avete riservato al Gruccione. Vi aspetto a braccia aperte senza se e senza ma. Patrizia.

Il B&B è bellissimo! La struttura completamente nuova è stupenda, la camera (azzurra) molto spaziosa ben arredata con anche un piccolo terrazzino e ogni confort. I bagni sono nuovi e pulitissimi, i gestori gentilissimi e disponibili nel soddisfare ogni nostra richiesta. La colazione buonissima ed abbondante con la possibilità di scegliere sia dolce che salato. Intorno ala casa c'è un bellissimo giardino. Un posto molto bello da tutti i punti di vista! peccato esserci restati solo per una notte!

My name is Patrizia and I work in the B&B with my parents Paolo and Liliana. I am the youngest of three brothers and all the members of our family have always shared conviviality spirit. Our house has always been full of friends and we usually organize dinners and lunches. We like to meet new people and share the values of hospitality and good food. We have always lived in the countryside and the B&B perfectly reflects our passion for the green and nature. In addition to the management of the B&B I deal with creative writing. I'm an author. I write theatrical dramas, texts for television formats, children's tales. Also I am a singer and I play in a theater company. I love traveling. I did the camino of Santiago twice, all by myself. But the most creative and rewarding experience of all is the constant interrelation and exchange with people.. so we are waiting for you!

Area countryside

The B & B Il Gruccione is in the countryside of San Secondo, less than 15 km from Parma Fiere, and 20 km away from the Airport of Parma.
The B & B is located in a strategic point from which you can visit the castles of the lower Parma, which are among the best preserved in Italy: Fontanellato, Roccabianca, Soragna, Colorno. In addition, a few miles away from the B & B il Gruccione, you can find the places where Giuseppe Verdi lived: Roncole Verdi, Busseto and Sant'Agata.
Just a 15-minute drive away you can find Fidenza Village, the Outlet Store of the big brands for shopping fans.

San Secondo is located right in the middle of Food Valley, the home of the most loved Italian food in the world. This is the area of the culatello di Zibello, the salame di Felino, and the prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham). All the countryside is full of cheese factories, where you can buy Parmigiano Reggiano d. o. c. (the famous original Parmesan cheese), probably the most famous cheese in the world.

Travel themes
Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
