About the property

Charming Stone House With Fenced Garden, Wooden Floors And Open Fire

The house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood a couple of kms from the centre of the village of Fanano, which can be reached with a short walk into the woods.

It used to be a drying room for chestnuts and was completely restored in 1990. On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen (microwave, big fridge with freezer, stove and oven), with a table seating 6, a cosy living room with a sofa, 2 armchairs and a sofa bed and an open fire which can be used in winter for barbecues or simply to relax with your cup of tea. There are 3 double bedrooms (king size wooden beds in all of them), 2 on the first floor and 1 in the charming tower on the second floor. The house has 2 bathrooms, one on the ground floor, with a shower, and one on the first floor, with a bathtub. There are two separate entrances, one on the ground floor and the other on the first floor. Wooden floors everywhere, independent heating, 2 TVs with satellite channels and plenty of wardrobes and closets to store your stuff.

The property has a big fenced garden with parking space for two cars, chestnut trees, a patio, an outdoor barbecue, a garden shed and a big cave. It is the perfect place to chill out after a day skiing or hiking on the Cimone, or just to relax on a rainy day.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Province of Modena

In 1987, my father bought a small prefabricated house and set off to Fanano, looking for a small piece of land to place it. He was told there was something suitable for him just outside the village: he only needed to demolish a ruin still existing in the middle of the property.. When my dad saw the old drying room for chestnuts, however, he fell in love with that pile of stones. He sold the prefabricated house and started restoring the ruins, cleaning the stones one by one. The old stables became the ground floor, the chemney a charming bedroom on a tower. It took him almost 4 years to accomplish this endeavour, to which many of the skilled artisans of Fanano contributed: the carpenter building the wardrobes. the mason treating the stones. The result is a unique house, with all comforts but still full of charm and history.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Abbiamo trascorso in Ca' di Grazia una settimana di vacanza bellissima. Eravamo 4 adulti 2 ragazzi, 2 cani ed... 1 gatto e siamo riusciti a trovare tutti una sistemazione ottimale ( gatto compreso!). Le camere sono confortevoli, spaziose e ben tenute. La cucina è perfettamente attrezzata e la sala con il caminetto era perfetta per rilassarsi alla sera dopo essere tornati dalle vicine piste da sci. I due bagni posizionati sui due piani permettono di gestire al meglio le necessità di adulti e bambini e con un minimo di organizzazione tutte le mattine siamo riusciti a partire in orario per la neve raggiungibile in pochi minuti di auto. Attorno la casa un bel giardino recintato ha fatto la felicità dei cani e quindi anche del gatto. Abbiamo seguito i consigli dei proprietari su dove andare a mangiare fuori e ci siamo trovati benissimo, ho avuto la sensazione che sul mangiare siano molto ferrati :-)

Utilissima la Wi-Fi che ha permesso a tutti di giocare e gestire le proprie necessità .

Prezzo più che adeguato alle caratteristiche del posto .

Certo se cercate la discoteca sotto casa non la troverete ma se cercate un bel posto tra i castagni ed una casa confortevole potete andare tranquilli.

Spero di poterci tornare presto, siamo stati benissimo !

average rating of 4.0 based on 4 reviews

The property is quite shaded area and it needs the lights on inside all day.

  • 3 of 5

It is quite dark inside due to the shaded location. Which is good in the hot weather as it keeps it quite cool. There is some minor leaks under the kitchen sink and downstairs bathroom, which need attention as they are giving the downstair a damp smell. The shower head is blocked with lime and needs cleaning, the water comes out at all angles.

The garden is small and secluded but needs some outside furniture to relax in

Mostly it needs de-cluttering and some up-to-date comfortable furniture to make it a really good rental.

Abbiamo prenotato all ultimo ma siamo riusciti ad accordarci senza problema. La casa in sasso e' bellissima la posizione fuori dal centro e' un po isolata per dei bimbi. Ma vicinissimo c'e jn sentiero che attraversa il bosco con un fiume e porta al centro di Fanano. Abbiamo approfittato del barbecue e abbiamo fatto grigliata. Mini vacanza rilassante.
