Overview

About the property

Located just 1 km from the centre of the village of Marradi, the house, built entirely in stone, boasts an impressively long history. It was originally built hundreds of years ago as a small fortress dependent on the Abbey of Crespino (as we can tell from one of the inner walls of the house, where the embrasures are still visible).

Renovated throughout, the house has an independent heating system, a large entrance area, an eat-in kitchen equipped with a fridge and dishwasher, a large sitting room with a huge fireplace, 3 bedrooms (sleeping 4 adults + 2 children), and – for the moment – 1 bathroom with a shower.

Right opposite the house is a traditional wood-burning oven still used for cooking pizzas, roasts and desserts, and the attractive terrace looking onto the valley covers an area with a barbecue.

A short, shady farm road leads to the attractive manor house, surrounded by walnut and Lebanon cedar trees with large stables and hay sheds next to it.

Ideal for a holiday in the midst of nature and the local wildlife.

Close by, guests will find a swimming pool, tennis court and stable with horses.

Marradi is a small, ancient village in the Tosco-Romagnolo Apennines, and lies on the "Antica via del Grano e del Sale" route that once linked the Republic of Florence – where wheat was grown –with the Romagna area, where the characteristic “sweet” salt is still harvested in Cervia to this day. Surrounded by splendid, unspoilt landscape, the centre of the village boasts a number of beautiful noble buildings that testify to its illustrious past, and Marradi is a superb place both to live in and to visit. Life here moves along at a very “human” pace, well away from the hustle and bustle of the city, enhanced by the green forests and the clean, crystal-clear air, not to mention the excellent cooking, featuring the delicious local produce. Especially worth trying are the superlative Marron Buono chestnuts and the truffles, to mention just two. The locals are known for their hospitality and are happy to share with visitors the attractions of Marradi and the surrounding area, the birthplace of the poet Dino Campana and the inspiration behind his renowned work "I Canti Orfici".

In the centre of the village, visitors can admire the Archpriest’s Church, featuring alterpieces by the Maestro of Marradi, the eighteenth-century "Teatro degli Animosi", the Church of Suffrage, Palazzo Torriani, the Dino Campana Study Centre, with the museum adjacent to it, and the Centre for the Study and Documentation of Chestnuts. The area is the ideal choice for a relaxing holiday, offering walking, horse-riding and mountain bike trips to visit the hermitages and the abbeys, or the nearby art cities (
