La Stalla @ Villa Bonicelli

Barn -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Toano, Province of Reggio Emilia, Emilia-Romagna
La Stalla at Villa Bonicelli is a recently completed barn conversion that sleeps two people in style. It is situated in Villa Bonicelli, a picturesque and peaceful hamlet in the heart of the Appennini mountains of Emilia Romagna. The property is well equipped, comfortably furnished and boasts absolutely stunning views of the mountains and the river Dolo. It's an ideal spot for couples looking for a romantic hideaway, but could also be rented in conjunction with one or both of our other properties: Casa Vigneto, a three-bedroom house, and/or L'Antico Palazzo, which can sleep up to 10. (Please see our other entries for more information on these properties.)

An outdoor swimming pool with mountain view is located just a few paces from the front door of La Stalla and is shared between the three properties. Wifi is available in the ho...

About the neighbourhood
For those looking to take it easy, why not simply sit back with a glass of vino and take in the gorgeous views from your terrace, relax by the pool or head out to one of the lovely local restaurants to be treated to some delicious Emilian cuisine? The river Dolo, which is in places deep enough to bathe (if you like a very 'refreshing' dip!), is just a few minutes' walk away and there are some spectacular walks that can be enjoyed directly from your front door. There's also a wealth of wildlife to observe – sharp-eyed guests might very well spot woodpeckers in the forest, deer in the fields and birds of prey circling over the mountains. The beautiful scenery also makes Villa Bonicelli an ideal location for painting holidays.

The area has many restaurants and pizzerias that...
