— How would you describe Villa di Parma in a few words?

Maria Carlotta: “It’s a magical place. The house was built in 1840 and two sisters originally owned it. My family took care of them and when they passed away, they left the house to them. My brother and I are now the fourth generation to live here. We work to maintain the family history.

The vacation villa is in the middle of a large park on top of a hill. It’s listed as a cultural heritage site. It’s a very original place in terms of the nature surrounding it, the architecture, and its style. The mix of those factors makes it charming.”

— Please tell us a bit more about the villa and the park.

Maria Carlotta: “The park is 300,000 square metres big. The villa is nested in a 15,000 square metre section inside that bigger park. You’re completely absorbed in nature.

When you stay on vacation here, you have the impression to be alone in the area, when in fact you are near many small villages. You feel a special, positive energy when you stay here and your troubles just melt away.

From every window of the house you see a different landscape; and you see the changes in that landscape throughout the day.”

— Please tell us a bit about the facilities of the vacation rental.

Maria Carlotta: “The villa is divided into two parts. One part is for the vacation guests, and we stay in the other. We have five guest rooms. There are two big suites with en-suite bathrooms and very big wardrobes, and three bedrooms with private bathrooms.

As far as common spaces go, there’s a big living room with a grand piano, a kitchen, and a common bathroom. And we have a big swimming pool from where you can see amazing sunsets.

I am also very happy to cook for guests if they ask me to. It’s very precious for me to have an exchange with guests from foreign countries and establish a relationship with them.”

— To you personally, what makes Villa di Parma special?

Maria Carlotta: “The magic of nature surrounding you. Sometimes in summer, the sky becomes really pink and the water of the swimming pool reflects that colour. It’s incredible.

When you are here, you don’t need anything. You can explore nature, be in the garden, go swimming, have dinner on the terrace, and in one hour you can be on the beach by the sea.

To me, it is a symbol of the story of my family, and it is a memorial to my father. He is the real founder of this project and the restructuring of the villa. He told me that he created the place for me to share with other people. The villa is more beautiful with people in it.”
