The villa is a gorgeous old building set in a quiet village. It is only 5 minutes from a handy supermarket and 10 minutes to the train station. You do need a car. The villa is very spacious with large bedrooms and living area. This provides a sense of comfort and relaxation. A kitchen has been installed into the upper level for guests. It is equipped with most requirements but did not have a kettle or a microwave. The family live in the lower levels, however this was not made clear in the information on HomeAway and is quite an oversight. It was not an issue as the host Maria was very welcoming despite our language barrier - made good use of the translate app! The bedding and towels need an update and more regular change. We had a very pleasant stay making a number of day trips to Bologna by train and driving to Ravenna, Modena and surrounding areas. A great way to see more of the productive farmland of the region.
We had a really lovely week at Corte Stellata. The apartment was nicely furnished and everything felt clean and fresh. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was excellent and the towels were large and cosy.
The owners were also really nice - they made us feel very welcome and even took us out on a boat trip when they had a free afternoon!
Corte Stellata is in a peaceful and quiet location, but still has a good internet connection and there is a large town about 10 minutes drive away - with a good supermarket.
