La Stalla at Villa Bonicelli is a recently completed barn conversion that sleeps two people in style. It is situated in Villa Bonicelli, a picturesque and peaceful hamlet in the heart of the Appennini mountains of Emilia Romagna. The property is well equipped, comfortably furnished and boasts absolutely stunning views of the mountains and the river Dolo. It's an ideal spot for couples looking for a romantic hideaway, but could also be rented in conjunction with one or both of our other properties: Casa Vigneto, a three-bedroom house, and/or L'Antico Palazzo, which can sleep up to 10.

It is situated in Villa Bonicelli, a picturesque and peaceful hamlet in the heart of the Appennini mountains of Emilia Romagna.

(Please see our other entries for more information on these properties.) An outdoor swimming pool with mountain view is located just a few paces from the front door of La Stalla and is shared between the three properties. Wifi is available in the house and by the swimming pool; however, due to the thick stone walls, we can't guarantee a connection in every corner of the house! Although a modern conversion, the barn retains much of its original charm, with exposed beams and stonework throughout. The open-plan ground floor has a sitting and dining area with wood pellet-burning stove, television and DVD library; a well-equipped kitchen corner with gas hob, fridge-freezer and washing machine; and a bathroom with charming small wooden bath tub imported from Thailand and separate shower cubicle. Stairs lead up to a mezzanine floor, where you will find a spacious double bedroom with cosy seating area and large picture windows (with remote-control-operated electronic blinds) that look out onto the beautiful mountain landscape. There is also a day bed that can be used as a single bed to sleep a third person, but please note that the barn is NOT suitable for children under the age of 5. La Stalla has a private east-facing terrace that looks onto the Appennini mountains and the river Dolo. What better spot to enjoy an alfresco meal (there's a fantastic large stone/marble barbecue) or a glass of vino as the sun goes down? Please note that La Stalla is accessed via a short downhill path (about 10m) that is quite steep. It is paved and lit, and there is a handrail. Whether you're simply looking to relax and recharge your batteries, or whether you are looking for a more active holiday of outdoor pursuits and sight-seeing, our property will provide the perfect base for you to enjoy and explore this unspoilt corner of Italy. We can also accommodate larger groups across our three properties - please contact us for more details.More

About the neighbourhood
For those looking to take it easy, why not simply sit back with a glass of vino and take in the gorgeous views from your terrace, relax by the pool or head out to one of the lovely local restaurants to be treated to some delicious Emilian cuisine? The river Dolo, which is in places deep enough to bathe (if you like a very 'refreshing' dip!), is just a few minutes' walk away and there are some spectacular walks that can be enjoyed directly from your front door. There's also a wealth of wildlife to observe – sharp-eyed guests might very well spot woodpeckers in the forest, deer in the fields and birds of prey circling over the mountains. The beautiful scenery also makes Villa Bonicelli an ideal location for painting holidays. The area has many restaurants and pizzerias that offer fantastic ...
