The area

The house is in the Tuscan Emilia National Park so the whole area is unspoilt and very beautiful. The dominant feature is the Bismantova Rock which you can climb to the top in under an hour for spectacular views.

But there are wonderful views all year round.

We can watch the deer in the field outside, eagles soaring above, irridescent fireflies in June and butterflies all summer long. It's a nature lovers' paradise.

It's within walking distance of many trails, fields of wild flowers, agricultural land, orchards, grape vines, a river to walk alongside (or go for a cooling dip!), and the lovely hamlet itself. There are also the castles of Matilda to explore in summer and the local ski slopes and trails in the winter.

There's a local Via Ferrata for the more adventurous.

Cyclists and motorcyclists can enjoy the winding roads with wonderful scenery.

We have a garage should you need to use it.

Oh, and there is TV , and wi fi iin the living areas on each floor.
