Located near the south-eastern corner of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, Casa Eleonora claims a hilltop position amid the rolling green landscape bordering the Foresti Casentinesi - a national park extending southward into Tuscany. In fact, this property once was part of Tuscany! The village of Tredozio, 2.5 km from the house, is peaceful and quiet, yet also offers a number of inviting restaurants, including a Michelin one-star restaurant, the Mulino di San Michele, located in an old mill. In Tredozio you will also find a grocery, two bakeries, a butcher, pharmacy, bank, post and a cappuccino bar.
Emilia-Romagna stretches coast-to-coast just north of Tuscany and is best known for its food - Parma ham, parmesan cheese, Bolognese sauce, and balsamic vinegar are just a few of many delicious regional innovations. Faenza, with its world-famous ceramics museum and production house, is 30 kilometers away, and the splendid medieval fortress of Brisighella is half as far. Visit Ravenna (50 km) to see the world's finest Byzantine mosaics outside of Istanbul, and from here it's just minutes to the Adriatic coast. The distinguished city of Bologna (75 km) offers a delightful urban experience, and also the Tuscan capital of Florence (90 km) is accessible for an easy day trip.
Casa Eleonora is a classical country house plus cottage, which has been restaured in 2004. The main house has been divided into two large apartments for six people each. The former chapel of the estate has been transformed into a small guesthouse suitable for a couple. Both houses share the swimming pool (10 x 5 m). Each unit has table and chairs for al fresco dining. 12 people can be seated comfortably in the garden around a large wooden table, more tables can be pushed together if your gruop is larger. With a total of 14+2 beds, this is the ideal property for a large group of people to share.
