We arrived to Vigoleno by chance. While planning a day-trip to Castell'Arquato, a renowned medieval city, and looking for information on the Internet, we found out that the Vigoleno Castle was not far away from our destination, and looked even more interesting! It was not so easy to find this castle, since it is in an isolated area, but the... More

...you find this BEAUTIFUL medieval Borgo. Even on the rainy day that we visited it was stunning. Fortunately, as you are fairly well off the beaten track here, there was also a very fine place to eat outside the town walls. We really enjoyed this trip.

What a unique experience to stay in a castle! Our room in the guard house was very clean and quiet with a wood beam ceiling, a comfortable bed, and a large bathroom. The included breakfast was tasty with friendly service. We loved exploring around the little village inside the castle walls and visiting the tower museum. Dinner at the restaurant... More

Visited Vigoleno in the winter, still, the warmth of the medieval city and its small streets and alleys is enough to keep your mind of the cold. Its quite a small village, surrounded by old castle walls. The entrance takes you back in time, with a narrow corridor and tall walls. After entering the gates, you come to the main... More

On the highest point in a beautiful place the castle of vigolino is. The staff is very helpful nice and giving you the feeling that you are the most important person at their hotel. The food is excellent and the decoration of each room is very fine. Great place for relaxing all the year.

This castel is really amazing. Everything here is well preserved and restored and the time seems to be suspended. Take time and come up to Vigoleno!

Vigoleno is a large castle and enclosed village in the heart of Emilio Romagna more or less equidistant from Parma and Piacenza. there is a typical small delicatensent and small cafe-try the local way of drinking wine out of white bowls and savour the views of the unspoilt countryside.

We have visited the tiny fortified village of Vigoleno before, but on this trip we were about to leave at 3PM when we saw someone open the door to the castle, and we were able to visit the interior and the battlements. The view is splendid in all directions from both castle and village, and is a good reason to... More
