The historical village of Stellata, which lies within the Bondeno municipality, rises against the right bank of the river Po and is renowned for its star-shaped fortress. This area is located in the Emilia Romagna region, also bordering both Veneto and Lombardia.
If you head out of the village along the river bank and follow the “Destra Po” cycle path, before the mouth of the Panaro river, you will reach Malcantone and encounter a secluded, tranquil and magical place. The CORTE STELLATA rural complex is set between the green countryside and the flood plains of the river Po and is protected by the river’s generous and imposing banks. Dating back to the 18th and 19th century, the complex was once owned by the noble Pepoli family and comprises a farmhouse, an old stable and a barn, surrounded by14,000 square metresof land.
The barn has been renovated and turned into three apartments, transforming it into a haven for travellers seeking peace, nature and history in a traditional setting, providing visitors with an authentic experience rarely found elsewhere.
PIOPPETO apartment is decorated in shades of green that recall the leaves of poplar trees and is lit by finely made, green wall-lights. It comprises a bathroom, finished with travertine Greek frets featuring alternating emerald green and pale green stones, a living room with kitchenette and sofa bed, and a double bedroom with a wrought iron bed. The living room is also furnished with an antique table, a cupboard from the end of the 1800’s and a chest of drawers, intended for the use of any guests sleeping on the sofa bed.
