  • the design of the property
Palazzo Illica is a 17th century building; with its rectangular plan, built with sandstones and bricks. During 19th century the building was meticulously restored and transformed into villa; it was owned by the Luigi Illica family, a very famous Puccini and Verdi librettist, who called this mansion with his name.

Today Palazzo Illica appears like a closed village due to its rustic outbuildings built during 19th and beginning of 20th century.

Now the property is also the head-office of a orchard, meadow, cereal farm. Its main characteristic is to grow 700 auctochtonal olive trees, which find their optimum cultivation conditions on green and gentle Valdarda hills.

Horse farming belonging to Libro Genealogico of Sella Italiano but also a barbera and bonarda vineyard for production of Gutturnio d.o.p. wine, complete the farm.

The infinite care, patience and love of the current owners maintain intact not only the extraordinary environment, composed by 5 hectares of bay oak, cherry, chestnut and hornbeam wood, but also the historical and monumental park, which surrounded Palazzo Illica.

Extended on 200mq area, the library preserves a cultural heritage composed by 10.000 books

Meravigliosa struttura con camere spaziose e letti comodi. Giardino immenso e presenza di cavalli che allietano la permanenza. Unica pecca la colazione, solo dolce. Mancavano salumi e formaggi nonché pane integrale o bevande alternative al latte. Una struttura così spettacolare potrebbe aggiornare il menu della colazione diventando da 10 e lode.

Il Paradiso deve essere simile. Questo posto è un incanto. Trasuda amore in ogni dettaglio. E storia e arte che Maria ti racconta con l'entusiasmo della sua vita. Piena di studio, di inizi, di cose buone e giuste. E con la stessa passione cucina guanciotte di manzo che non hanno pari, prepara composte di nespole e crostate km 0, cerca il vero nome di tutto e di tutti. Si torna a casa più ricchi e con la certezza di tornare.

Podere Illica è accogliente ed egregiamente gestito dalla Signora Maria, che riesce a trovare un tempo esclusivo per i suoi ospiti, perché molto disponibile sia all'interno dei servizi del suo podere sia nel fornire informazioni e indicazioni per gite fuori-porta. Abbiamo trovato un clima familiare e una cucina abbondante, molto buona. Prezzo non elevato considerando il posto e i servizi. Per chi ama la cultura italiana è un ottimo punto di riferimento. Consigliato a tutti.

Condivido pienamente l'ottimo giudizio di Sonia che ha pernottato dal 02/09/2017 al 03/09/2017, anche io con mia moglie e mio figlio accompagnato dalla sua famiglia abbiamo pernottato solo una notte, ma ho promesso alla simpaticissima signora Maria che torneremo per visitare quel magnifico territorio ove si trova il magico Palazzo Illica. Complimenti e a rivederci.

Ho soggiornato solo una notte, purtroppo, ma è stata una bellissima esperienza: l'agriturismo è un luogo molto gradevole, con spazi diversi molto ben curati, un parco con giardino e animali, ideale per passeggiate in campagna e momenti di relax. Stanze accoglienti e pulite, cibo buono cucinato dalla signora Maria Enrica, che è la vera sorpresa e il vero tesoro di questo luogo. Una signora colta, interessante, che ci ha aperto, su richiesta, la sua incredibile biblioteca, stracolma di libri di ogni sorta e che contiene volumi antichi e preziosi. Racconta volentieri del suo amore per questo luogo, di come ne è venuta in possesso e lo ha ristrutturato nel tempo, con l'aiuto di professionisti e dopo lunghe ricerche negli archivi per ridargli al sua forma originale (quella che aveva al tempo del padre del librettista di Puccini Luigi Illica, che ci abitava). È una posizione comoda per visitare dei veri gioielli come Castell'Arquato ovviamente, ma anche l'altro borgo medievale con castello di Vigoleno, i resti romani di Veleia Romana, l'abbazia di Chiaravalle e, nel ritorno verso Mantova, c'è stata anche la residenza di Soragna. Un weekend di relax per il corpo e di nutrimento per la mente e lo spirito: un bel regalo di compleanno per mio marito. Consigliassimo.

Il nostro è stato un soggiorno breve, ma siamo tornati con questo posto nel cuore. Stanza ampia (eravamo 3 + cane) e pulitissima, abbiamo usufruito del ristorante: tutto buono e porzioni super abbondanti così come la colazione, ottime le torte. Ci torneremo.

The owner, an extremely pleasant Lady, could not do enough for my wife and I. The room was very spacious and clean and the breakfast was serves with lots of home made cakes and jams, all superb. We also had dinner in the restaurant and the food was very much appreciated, home made pasta served with a tomato and beans sauce " pisarei e fasò " are to die for.

Abbiamo soggiornato una sola notte in occasione della visita ai Castelli del Ducato, posto davvero molto molto bello, si respira un aria rilassante! Immersa nella natura e attorniato dagli animali, è un posto davvero ben tenuto, curato e pulitissimo. La signora molto gentile e bravissima a contatto con la gente, davvero un soggiorno consigliato e gradito. Non abbiamo potuto provare la cucina in quanto non abbiamo soggiornato durante il fine settimana, ma la signora ci ha indicato un posto davvero molto molto carino e dove abbiamo mangiato benissimo (l'Angiolina).

Area hills

Podere Palazzo Illica lies in the very heart of Italian food valley; it is 30 km far from the city of Parma and Piacenza, 80 km from Milano and 150 km from Bologna and Genova.
Less than one hour’s drive you can easily reach the city of Pavia, Cremona and Mantova, which are important for their monuments and works of art, and you can also reach Soragna, Fontanellato and Colorno villages.
The property lies also less than 10 km far from two of Italian famous spas, Salsomaggiore Terme and Tabiano; it is also at a very short distance from two important ancient medieval villages: Vigoleno and Castell’Arquato.
Podere Palazzo Illica is in a strategic position: not far from airports (Milano Lainate, Bergamo Orio al Serio and Parma will be reached in less than one hour’s drive) but also not far from sea: in 1 hour and 30 minutes, by motorway called “Parma mare”, you will reach the wonderful Cinque Terre landscape and Versilia beaches.

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.
