The Leon d’Oro Hotel, a superior 3-star, is situated on the Hills of Piacenza in the small borough of Castell’Arquato, one of the most beautiful mediaeval villages in Italy, surrounded by vineyards and poppy-covered hillsides.
In a magnificently renovated, Liberty-style building, the hotel is an architectural masterpiece of harmony and sophistication and offers those seeking elegance and refined taste a holiday surrounded by history, nature, music, food and wine, archaeology, spas and art cities.
The Leon door is ideal for any kind of holiday, whether you want to relax, play sport, are interested in nightlife or adore culture. Overlooking the delightful Piazza Europa, the hotel has 3 floors and 15 rooms, 4 of which have a furnished terrace, as well as a hanging parterre with lounge and sun terrace, which can be booked exclusively for magnificent hours relaxing outdoors or private dinners.
In the Don Ferdinando restaurant, the chef prepares dishes inspired by tradition, personally choosing ingredients and typical local products. The restaurant has a garden filled with roses and box trees where guests can enjoy candle-lit dinners. Worth mentioning are the handmade pasta dishes, soups, Duchy fillet steaks and fantastic desserts.
There is also a small bar for snacks, cocktails and aperitifs that serves guests both indoors and in the garden. At the Leon d’Oro youcan also relax in the swimming pool during the warmest hours of the day! In the splendid panorama of the hills above Sant’Antonio, at the “Oca Nera” private riding club, in the peace of the countryside, far from noisy traffic and comforted by the whinnying of horses, you can enjoy a magical space at the hottest times of day, and leave your cultural visits to when it’s cooler.
The hotel has agreed special terms with Gropparello Castle and is only a few kilometres far from Castell'Arquato Golf Club, Salsomaggiore Golf & Thermae and Croara Country Club.
