Peaceful mountain retreat
Porcaticcio's stone cottage exceeded our expectations - the setting is beautiful, peaceful, scenic and beautiful sculptures were peppered about the garden. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners and their two dogs, Baccio and Spotty (whom our daughter fell in love with). The friendliness and hospitality of the owners were amazing. Thanks Gabriella for the delicious dessert!!
If you're looking for a holiday away from the maddening crowd but still close enough to be able to visit the beautiful picturesque old town nearby, make day trips to beautiful Florence, Brigishella for the best olive oil, Faenza (ceramics), Revenna (Dante's final resting place) or even Venice - this is the place for you. The location, layout and facilities were so much bigger and impressive than what the photos show. (Washing machine, coffee maker, cooker, oven, fan - all the comforts of home)
We definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for some peace and quiet in the beautiful Emilia-Romagne countryside.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are really pleased you could spend a good time here, finding an inspiring atmophere to write, read, walk and visit our surroundings. ...Also our Bacio and Spotty were happy to find new friends that could play with them.
All the best to you and your family. Gabriela & Cornelis
The Ideal Holiday Retreat
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 .
Thank you so much. It is a great pleasure for us to know that you had a great time in Porcaticcio di Sopra and spent a good holiday. All the best to you and your family! Gabriela, Cornelis and ...Bacio.

"The beautiful surroundings and the kindness of the owners made this stay very relaxed and warm. With some lively towns not too far away from the rented house, we could combine in this trip pleasant cultural events with laidback rural life."

"The house is a beautiful bijoux cottage with all modern comforts. The driveway is steep but perfectly manageable. Cornelis and Gabriella are delightful and very helpful and knowledgeable. The area has a lot to offer but for higher climbing you need to go towards San Bernadino in Alpe. Beware of the restaurant La Betulla although it is VERY good it is not as close to the road as you think and there is a 15 minute drive up some steep road to eventually get there. A wonderful house for a relaxing holiday"

"Impeccably clean.Very peaceful(in the country). Delightful surroundings - woodland, farmland and vineyards in a mountainous setting. Charming views. Facilities in the property are of the highest standard. Access was our only problem (apart from some unseasonal weather)but we understand that the drive up from the road has been given a good surface since we left."
