What’s a Cool Retreat?
Sustainability & Eco Awareness
La Stalla @ Villa Bonicelli is a recently completed barn conversion that sleeps 2-3 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 larger groups can rent it in conjunction with L’Antico Palazzo (sleeps 10) and Casa Vigneto (sleeps 6-7), our other properties in the hamlet. The outdoor swimming pool, shared between the three properties and situated a few paces from La Stalla’s front door, is in a sheltered position and looks out over the mountains.
Although a modern conversion, the barn retains much of its original charm, with exposed beams and stonework throughout. The open-plan ground floor has a sitting and dining area with wood pellet-burning stove and television with DVD library; a well-equipped kitchen corner with gas hob, fridge-freezer and washing machine; and a bathroom with charming small wooden bath tub imported from Thailand and separate shower cubicle. Free wifi is available, but because of the thick stone walls, we can’t guarantee access throughout the house!
Stairs lead up to a mezzanine floor, where you will find a spacious double bedroom with cosy seating area and large picture windows (with remote-control-operated electronic blinds) that look out onto the beautiful mountain landscape. There is also a day bed that can be used as a single bed to sleep a third person, but please note that La Stalla is NOT suitable for children under the age of 5.
La Stalla has a private, east-facing terrace that looks across a small vineyard to the Appennini mountains and the river Dolo beyond. What better spot to enjoy a glass of vino at sundown or a little stargazing on a balmy night?
Whether you’re simply looking to relax and recharge your batteries, or whether you’re planning a more active holiday of outdoor pursuits and sight-seeing, our property will provide the perfect base for you to enjoy and explore this unspoilt corner of Italy.
