Welcome to the Apennine Mountains of Reggio Emilia in the Tuscan Emilian National Park

When you arrive in Reggio Emilia, founded in 175 BC, you step back in history. There is Byzantiane art and architecture at every tur, the finest of which include the Basilica of San Prospero and the Piazza Prampolini where the markets are held every Tuesday and Friday mornings, the Grand Duomo and the renowned Teatro Municpale.

Venture further south and you are in the land of Countess Matilada of Canossa and the Tuscan Emilian National park of the Apennine mountains. Here you will find the medieval castles of Canossa, Carpineti and Rossena. Travel on the Castelnova Nel' Monte here on which sits the Bismantova, a magnificent sandstone plateau. Its awesome structure is a breathtaking symbol of the region. From here to the thermal springs of Poiano you can travel through the Triassic Valley and up to Monte Cusna in the Il Gigante National Park with a height of 2121 metres.

Through out the region, the tranquil villages come alive with the many festivals through the four seasons. The Maggio in July and August is an ancient traditional festival also the Chestnut and New wine festival in October are villa Minozzo's largest and most colourful festivals. Of course the Italian food is another reason to visit this area the home of Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan cheese), Parma Ham and Balsamic vinegar. Porcini Mushrooms and Chestnuts can be found growing wild in the foothills in the autumn.

Spring, summer, autumn or winter; the scenery that surrounds you is spectacular with the wild alpine flowers, roe deer and wild boar seen in the meadows surrounding us.

Summer and winter sports; walking, cycling and skiing can be enjoyed by all. Also horse riding and three open air swimming pools close by.

A place that is adventurous or as tranquil as you would wish it to be. Written by Robert E Smith - Owner of Property 11655 in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Exceptionally well equipped kitchen. The outdoor covered dining table on the terrace was perfect for meals with a view and what a beautiful view! The upstairs terrace is a great outdoor space for relaxing and eating. The bedrooms downstairs are large and pleasantly cool at night, despite day temperatures of 30+ degrees C. Very good walk in shower. There are lots of seating areas outside, both on the front terrace and in the rear garden. The covered car park area was very convenient. We had a fab week at Casa Stiano. The scenery there is just stunning and the house had everything we needed. As has been mentioned, the internet connection isn't good. This seems to be a problem in the village. A return stay at Casa Stiano is a definite!

We had a really great stay in this evocative and truly authentic Italian country house that once belonged to a famous local painter, whose artwork still adorns the walls and bedrooms. The kids loved the pool (and the tortoises!) and we felt completely relaxed and secluded. Don't come expecting a sanitised and perfect tourist environment. This is a real house that wears its history on its walls and halls and is all the better for it. Many amazing places are a reasonable drive away and the local cheeses, meats and wines are among the best in Italy. Thanks Adelina for letting us share a little bit of your family's history. We will remember Barco with great fondness!

We loved exploring the little towns and villages nearby and also took the chance to visit Bologna, Parma and Reggio Emilia. The information pack provided with the property was exceptionally good with lots of practical advice eg which village has the best bakery, butcher etc. We also received this well in advance of our trip which really helped with our planning! We loved shopping in Quara and Toano and really enjoyed having to practice our Italian. The Enoteca in Cerredolo had an excellent choice of wines, both local and from other regions of Italy. It is possible to eat out in the evening but only if you're prepared to drive.
