About Gabriela and Cornelis

We are an Italian-Dutch couple. Cornelis is a professional sculpture and put a lot of energy in renovating Porcaticcio di Sopra. Gabriela is a communication consultant and yoga teacher.

Gabriela and Cornelis purchased this barn in 2006

Why Gabriela and Cornelis chose Casona Valsenio

Porcaticcio di Sopra is our paradise and we like to share it with our guests. A place to relax, study and think and a perfect place to discover some of the beauty of Italy in daily trips.

What makes this barn unique

Porcaticcio di Sopra is a XVI century mansion surrounded by contemporary art that melts with the sounds and colors of the forest.

The Ideal Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

All the information on the website was accurate.As with many beautiful locations it is difficult for the photographs to convey just how good the location is.If you like peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, but with the option to drive to interesting towns and cities this will tick all the boxes.

Gabriela and Cornelis were great hosts making the booking process very easy, and suggesting interesting places to visit whilst providing background information to the area.

Highlights of our stay were visits to Bologna, Fiesole(looking down on Florence),Ferrara,the mosaics at Ravenna, wandering the streets of Imola at the time of the music festival, Modena including the Ferrari museum, the list could go on!

Sometimes you need a little luck, and ours was to witness the natural phenomenon of the nightly display of around 200 fire flies.

We would not hesitate in recommending Porcaticcio Di Sopra as the property is called.If you do decide to visit, say ciao to Bacio the friendly Border Collie who always greeted us on returning from a days sight seeing .

Happy days.
