Set up in the hills, Stanco is a great place to base yourself if you want to combine rest & relaxation with a little bit of sightseeing in the region of Emilia-Romagna & also Tuscany. Our 3rd time staying here. We have done day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Ferrara, Bologna, San Marino, Siena, Montecatini Terme and many more... There is a train station in Grizzana Morandi is you want to leave the car parked up & go visit somewhere rather than driving. The swimming pool is great & there is nothing like buying your fresh meat, cheeses, bread in Vergato & having lunch outdoors looking at the stunning rolling mountains & valley scenery. Similarly at night sitting out under the stars enjoying a drink. Nel Castagneto restaurant is just 2 minutes drive away back in the direction of Grizzana Morandi & Cristina is very welcoming & makes the best Italian dishes we ever tasted. Everything is perfect for a lovely family holiday. Ruth & Andrea are great hosts & they even host a dinner for guests who are staying to meet each other & socialise. We will definitely return again in the future.
We enjoyed our stay, the pool was lovely, views were spectacular. Apartment had all necessities needed. The area was higher up in the hills than we expected and you definitely need to use your car to go up and down into the local village. As it’s very steep and windy on the road. We enjoyed looking round the farm and the very friendly farm cats and dog enjoyed visiting us daily! Cristina was very welcoming and we loved fresh food gifts she cooked. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and did lots of exploring of the local area and further afield. Thank you for a pleasant stay.
