Period Italian Villa for sale in the Parma area of Emilia Romagna

November 29th 2010

At the heart of Emilia Romagna, the Italian region known for its food worldwide, Parmesan cheese and Parma ham to name a few, a historic villa is a rarity to find for sale.

Emilia Romagna is a large region and very diverse, from the beautiful cities to the buzzing seaside with lively resorts, the more remote mountain villages and the tranquil countryside where the Po river flows to the sea.

Because of its strategic location, each countryside village in this area has a wealth of history with nobles fighting for territory in the Middle Ages and building castles and walled towns. More recently, aristocratic families have built their dwellings in the country where they used to have extensive land estates.

This prestigious property is situated in the village of Pieveottoville, Zibello which is well known for its ham. In 2009 Britainís Prince Charles, who truly enjoys the Italian cured meat Culatello, has now entrusted his own pigs to a farmer in this area.

The large villa has potential to become a luxury residence or a boutique B&B, cookery school or even a music school seen that Parma is also famous for its Giuseppe Verdi festival.

It is ideal to host events since the large garden and an additional plot of land situated at the back of the barn, would be perfect for outdoor receptions or other activities.

The main villa is in good condition and it is habitable, whereas the outbuilding and the barn offer a blank canvas, with their large size these can be turned into additional habitable space to suit almost any project.

As any prestige property, this villa has high walls around it, so to guarantee privacy and security. An antique wooden gate gives access to the property and reveals all the beauty of this ancient and yet well maintained villa.
