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. It is rich in history, some of which has yet to be discovered.
If you head out of the village along the river bank and follow the “Destra Po” cycle path past 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.
The studio "IL CIELO" boasts sky blue walls, a romantic four-poster bed with very fine curtains and a fully-equipped kitchenette with rustic stove hood and light blue hardwood cupboard doors. The ceramic wall-lights were made by skilled artisans. The large bathroom is decorated with stone tiles and finished with travertine Greek frets into which small sky-blue stones are set like precious jewels. The spacious shower occupies a niche created by the bathroom walls, and has a large shower head.
