Though we focus on Umbria in this blog, I don’t want to withhold you this story.
As said we went to this wine fair near Parma. Via the internet we booked something only 15 minutes from the fair. Since check in was after 15.00 and the fair started at 12.00 we turned up at the hotel after the sun had set. We had good directions and were supposed to see the hotel on the left just before a roundabout. Up came the roundabout and …no hotel, only a sign to turn left. So we turned left at the roundabout … but no hotel.
We returned to the sign and saw a small country lane where we saw the above.
For the price the hotel was great. Only the breakfast was a small disaster with cheap industrial products and no fruit or anything fresh. Mind you even (more) expensive hotels don’t do breakfast very well so all in all we think this was a good deal. We also did find a restaurant serving very good ravioli nearby!
