About the property

Home of the Dutch sculptor Cornelis, old stone house in the forest

Welcome from March to October!

Choose your apartment in Porcaticcio di Sopra from spring to autumn, a paradise in Italy.

Each season offers different opportunities: for example admiring the blossoming of fruit trees (peach, apricot, cherry, plum, almond …) in spring, sunbathing and refreshing in the shade of the forest in a hot summer, trekking and searching for mushrooms, chestnuts and forgotten fruits in autumn.

Moreover Porcaticcio di Sopra is really a strategic location on the Apennines, situated on the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.

That means you can plan daily trips both to our main cultural towns, such as Bologna, Ravenna, Florence and charming medieval villages in the surroundings like Brisighella, Marradi, Palazzuolo sul Senio, Castel del Rio, Riolo Terme.

And you can count any time on two special local cuisines! Do not miss: Sangiovese red wine, tortelli burro e salvia, tagliatelle al ragù, spezzatino di cinghiale e polenta and much more …

We offer you:

LA CASETTA, a cozy and romantic little cottage, perfect for a couple. It can host up to 3 persons.

LA CASA-TORRE, a comfortable and wide apartment in our mansion, where we occupy the tower space. It can host from 3 to 6 guests (2 wide bedrooms).

In summertime we set up a refreshing plunge pool (3 mt diameter).

LAST MINUTE DISCOUNT: 10% for reservations between 10 and 2 days before arrival.

10% DISCOUNT for a 2-week vacation and more.

About Gabriela

We are a Dutch-Italian couple. Cornelis is a professional sculptor and I am a communication consultant.

Our passion for nature and old stone houses took us in 2006 to Porcaticcio di Sopra, a big mansion abandoned for many years. We fell in love with the place right away and we decided to start our project of restoration. Giving new life to Porcaticcio is a great satisfaction and now we like to share our paradise with our guests.

Gabriela purchased this cottage in 2006
