Description

2 x luxurious self-contained apartments one on the first floor and the other on the second floor of this traditional chalet style house. Each spacious apartment has 2 double bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and living room with south facing balcony with beautiful views. You can book one apartment or both together and there are extra beds should you need them. There is a large landscaped garden to enjoy with lots of little areas to sit in. There is a 7 seater jacuzzi and a sun deck to relax on the sun loungers or eat 'al fresco'.

The house is the home of an artist and musician and boasts hundreds of works of original art including murals and large scale paintings of copies of the 'old masters'. It is perhaps a little bit like staying in an art gallery! Drawing or painting lessons are available.

The apartments are self catering and meals are also available on request.

The property sits at the end of a tiny hamlet with views of mountains, fields

The property sits at the end of a tiny hamlet with views of mountains, fields and vineyards. Yet it is only 10 mins walk from the nearest town, where there are bars, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, shops, a sports centre and a large outdoor swimming pool.

The owners are friendly and helpful and can help you arrange local activities such as, horse riding at the local stables, cookery lessons from a local Italian chef or photography field trips by a local photographer. There are festa's every weekend in the local town which we can advise on also. We also have route maps of walks and cycling suggestions.

We are within driving distance of Florence, Pisa, Parma, Bologna and Cinque Terra.

Location description from owner

The Emilia-Romagna region

Emilia Romagna borders Tuscany and as such is similar in climate and geography, but less well known and therefor less 'touristy'. It's a large region covering a band almost from east to west of Italy, and including the Po Valley and also the Apppennine mountains which form the spine of Italy.

It is nick-named 'The Gastronomic Capital' of Italy and as soon as you land here you will understand why. This is where many speciality foods and wines originate. Parmesan cheese, Parma hams, truffles, Balsamic vinegar, porcini mushrooms and red Lambrusco are only a few of the local delicacies. The quality of the food is very important and shops, markets and restaurants offer the finest eating experiences in the world.

Bologna is a beautiful city largely ignored by non Italian tourists but with many amazing aights. It boasts over 50km of covered archways, first built so that any visitors would always have a roof over their head at night. It is called 'Red Bologna' not only for its many terra-cotta coloured roofs, but also for it's history as a political and cultural centre. It boasts the oldest university in Europe.

There are many other towns and villages of cultural interest in Emilia Romagna, each with different personalities. Visit Ravenna for the mosaics, or the beautiful Sienna which has amazing architecture. Mantova, is also beautiful but different. For car lovers there are four world renowned car factories to visit.

Italians love festas and wherever you are in Emilia Romagna there will be a festa on at the weekends and possibly also during the week in summer. These can be music, dancing or any other form of entertainment but usually accompanied by food!

The beautiful Toscan Emilio National park in the Appennine mountains of Italy is a destination of unspoiled beauty. Enjoy the clean mountain air with wonderful views, and unspoilt Italian villages, the beautifully husbanded landscape with vine yards and orchards, woodland and plenty of wild flowers and animals. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty well worth a visit for any nature lovers.

Discover the many castles of Matilda di Canossa of the 13th century. She was a truly amazing queen of the area and indeed one of the few women who are represented in the Vatican. Her story is inspiring and well worth finding out.

The weather is warm in summer and of course cooler in Winter. In the mountains it is cooler than the valleys in summer and warmer in Winter as you are often above the cloud level, and you can enjoy many Winter sports at the various ski resorts.

Toano

This area is absolutely beautiful and a paradise for nature lovers, whether you want to walk or cycle along the many way marked routes, go swimming in the rock pools or immersing yourself in local Italian life at the festas and market days.

The area is also of great geological interest and the Bismantova mountain is the largest climbing venue in Italy with a fantastic south facing rock wall with over 250 fixed routes. It is a playground for climbers who can also try different Via Ferrata routes.
For those less inclined a 20 minute walk will take you to the summit for amazing views from the 1km plateau.

You can visit Parmesan cheese 'laterias' dine on local delicacies or immerse yourself in the tranquil and friendly local lifestyle.
