Just thirteen kilometers from the center of Parma arises Corte Finzi. Nestled in the colors and scents of the Parma hills, the stables of this rustic eighteen century stone farmhouse have been transformed into an intimate and warm guest house in the heart of the “food valley” known as Val Baganza, home and farmland of Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma.
The history of this property began in 17th century when a part of the land confiscated from Ranuccio Farnese by the counts of Sanvitale di Sala, after the conspiracy of 1612. It thereby became a part of the properties of a wealthy family in Parma named the Paroni, who remained its owners until 1801. On January 5th, 1917 Emilio Finzi purchased the property, which has remained in the family ever since, and over the years has been completely restored and enhanced to become a landmark in Italian hospitality.
Every detail and element is scrupulously overseen with passion and respect for the region’s culture.
The four guest rooms are enhanced by furniture belonging to the family for over 100 years, recovered and restored to create an intimate atmosphere. An ideal home base, in the suburbs of Parma, to discover this country corner so rich of history, culture and tradition.
