Tabiano Castle, which dates from the 11th century, was a military stronghold of the powerful Pallavicino family. It has recently been restored and turned into a relais de charme. The rooms are housed in the watch-tower and in the original main residence; they are beautifully appointed with antique furniture, matching upholstery and handpainted ceramic ware and provide every modern comfort, including air conditioning, lcd satellite tv and high-speed Internet connection. Some feature a rustic, cosy ambience, with terracotta tiled floor, fireplace and antique en suite bathtub. Guests can enjoy two swimming pools and the wellness centre inside a wide natural cave, with Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, sauna, relaxation area and a private spa. Also traditional massage, as well as shiatsu and reflexology are available, together with beauty treatments. A breathtaking view over the Apennine and across the wide River Po plain, as far as the Alpine peaks adds to the pleasure of a stay at the Castle.
