The lodge is part of the ancient Borgo at Villa Bonicelli. Recently renovated to incorporate existing features and a modern design, it now offers accommodation for a couple of people.
The house is set on two floors with en-suite bathroom off the bedroom and an anti room.
The quirky interior design continues down the spiral staircase to an open plan kitchen ,dining and living space.
A door opens out onto a private patio, for outdoor dining and admiring the view.

Lo spazio
The lodge is a newly renovated part of the original main house of the Villa Bonicelli Borgo. it has been designed around two people sharing a modern take on a small lodge. it incorporates modern equipment and design whilst showing off the historical building it is set within.
Handmade ornaments and paintings sit alongside modern furniture and all mod cons in the kitchen.
A wonderful patio for you to sit out on to enjoy the morning sun rise is accessed from the lower floor with your own entrance to the garden. looking out up the valley you can see the vineyards and the woodlands you will see all manner of wildlife including in your neighbouring trees a striking green wood pecker.
In the immediate vicinity the river Dolo, which is in places deep enough to bathe, is on your doorstep 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 spot woodpeckers or Golden Oriels in the forest, deer and hare in the fields and birds of prey circling over the mountains.

This area is extremely popular with walkers, cyclists and bikers thanks to the stunning mountainous scenery. There are marked walking routes that can be picked up from Villa Bonicelli, from the river or from the nearby hamlet of Castagnola, including one that takes you across a rope bridge (see photo). There is also an excellent Via Ferrata that enables less experienced climbers to access some of the more dramatic routes usually only accessible to the expert mountaineer! About 30 min away is the Pietra di Bismantova, a magnificent sandstone plateau over 1,000m high. It is a climbers' paradise, with about fifty routes and climbing variants. Guided treks, half-day climbing lessons etc at Bismantova can be arranged – please contact us for more information. The Parco del Gigante, one of the largest parks in Emilia, is great for walking and horse riding.

The area has many restaurants and pizzerias that offer great value for money, including one approx 10 mins' drive away in Farneta. It is a friendly family-run restaurant with a lovely terrace on which to enjoy your meal. We have a partnership with this restaurant and can offer tailor-made cooking courses there on request (advance booking essential). It's a fantastic experience that comes highly recommended - our guests have said that it was a highlight of their holiday. For an alternative foodie experience, we have Fabio who will take you in for the day and you can prepare lunch for his clientele and learn many local food customs as well as have your own lunch prepared by Fabio. For a quick hours trip look no further than our local Parmesan producer in Quara to learn all about - and taste - the best Parmesan around! Get there early for a tour of the dairy and to see the artisans at work, ask Janet for details for a guided tour in English.

Throughout summer and autumn there are 'feste' being held most weekends in one or other of the local villages, with the focus of the celebrations ranging from wine and beer to chestnuts, mushrooms and truffles, not to mention various obscure saints!

The nearby town of Toano (approx 7km) has a small selection of bars, pizzerie, shops etc and is also home to one of the best preserved Roman churches in the Appenines. It also has a lovely outdoor swimming pool, which is open during the school holidays (early June to early September, see pic).
Alternatively Costa Bona and Cerredolo have great restaurants, for information please ask Janet on arrival.

Emilia Romagna is one of Italy's most prosperous regions and is famed for its culinary delights, making it an ideal destination for food lovers. Among other things, it is home to fresh pasta (tortellini, tortelloni...), ragù sauce, Parma ham, Parmesan cheese and traditional balsamic vinegar as well as Lambrusco, which is a light and very drinkable sparkling red.

'The Hunters Lodge' is very well placed for a day trip to any of the four main cities in Emilia Romagna, all of which are worth a visit. The ancient Roman town of Reggio Emilia is 50km away. Modena (60km) is a thriving city whose Duomo is considered one of the greatest examples of European Romanesque architecture and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Parma, one of the most affluent towns in Italy, is 70km away. Bologna, the region's capital city, is a real delight, with its characteristic red-brick buildings and its over 40km of covered porticos (useful in bad weather). It is also home to the oldest university in Europe, founded in 1088, earning it one of its nicknames, La Dotta (The Learned). Also known as La Grassa (The Fat), Bologna takes its food very seriously; in fact, it is considered by many to be the food capital of Italy.

This area is a car and motorbike enthusiast's dream come true - Lamborghini (Dosso, nr Ferrara), Ferrari (Maranello), Maserati (Modena) and Ducati (near Bologna) all have their factories and museums in the region.

For day-trips slightly further afield, a day at the seaside can be enjoyed at La Spezia or Lerici, both about two and a half hours away – and don't miss the Cinque Terre, five beautiful cliff-top villages dotted along the rugged Ligurian coastline that can only be reached by foot or by train. They're charming and surprisingly unspoilt, thanks to their UNESCO status. Alternatively, head to the Adriatic coast to the legendary resort of Rimini, with its 15km of sandy beaches (2.5hrs approx).

Accesso per gli ospiti
The outdoor swimming pool (3m x 9m), which has breathtaking views, is shared between the properties and is situated just around the corner of the Borgo, 30 seconds walk.

The garden area has outdoor seating and a BBQ.

Parking is available to the front of the house.

The house does not have wifi; however, there is access to wifi in the area around the swimming pool.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
There is no Wifi in the house currently but it is available in the swimming pool courtyard.
