L’Antico Palazzo

L’Antico Palazzo is a deceptively large, rustic stone house situated in Villa Bonicelli, a picturesque and peaceful hamlet in the beautiful Emilia-Romagnan countryside. It sleeps 10-12 people comfortably, making it ideal for families or groups of friends. It can be rented as a stand-alone property or in conjunction with one or both of our other properties: La Stalla, a barn conversion located next door to L’Antico Palazzo and which sleeps two people; and Casa Vigneto, house from fronta three-bedroom house (sleeps 6-7) just a couple of minutes’ walk away, across a small vineyard. An outdoor swimming pool with stunning mountain views is located behind L’Antico Palazzo and is shared between the three properties.

L’Antico Palazzo is a historically interesting building, being part of the original ‘casa padronale’ (manor house) of the hamlet. It has been furnished partly with antiques and quirky one-off pieces that reflect its history. It really is an original holiday home from which to explore this stunning and little-known area of Italy.

The beautiful arched doorway (clearly dated 1824, although the building itself dates back to the late 16th/early 17th century) opens onto a labyrinth of rooms! First is a large and atmospheric sitting room. This opens onto another large room, furnished as a second sitting room/’day room’. Off this are two separate double rooms, each with beautiful views of the valley, and a shower room. It is possible to make up a single bed in the ‘day room’.

There is a second shower room at the foot of the stairs that lead up to the first floor. Here, another ‘day room’ (with single bed if required) leads onto a double and a twin bedroom (which share an adjacent bathroom) and a double (with additional single bed) + en suite with over-bath shower. Please note that the three bedrooms all interconnect with the day room.

At the bottom of the house is a large kitchen, a separate dining room, a downstairs loo/utility room and even a wine cellar! Wine can be bought directly from us. The kitchen door opens onto a large terraced area for al fresco dining. Guests have use of a large outdoor table and chairs, sun loungers and a barbecue.

Free wifi is available in some rooms of the house – because of the very thick stone walls, we can’t guarantee it throughout!
