About Sieuwert Klip
Two friends with two dogs who love Italy and would like to share that feeling with you ...
Sieuwert Klip purchased this House in 2011
Why Sieuwert Klip chose Toano
We bought the house in 2011. We were instantly in love with the beautiful view and location. In 2012 and 2013 we have fully renovated and redocorated the house using a local contractor. We bought the house because we feel at home in Italy and we feel at home with the Italians. By renting our house we hope to give you some of our Italy Feeling as well.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful views and a quiet location in the foothills of the Apennines. Many opportunities for relaxing, hiking but also for visiting the cities of Modena, Parma, Bologna, Florence and so on.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Calm environment, scenic views, nice excursions
We really appreciated the house, with its multiple rooms on various levels, the patio with a scenic view on the one side and the garden plus terrace and a small view on the other. You could always find a shady place, which came handy in July. The house is well-equipped, everything is there and in perfect condition. We enjoyed the excursions to Carpineti castle, the Pietra di Bismantova, Canossa castle, a bath in the river Secchia. Food supply must be well-planned, because supermarkets are quite far away - we mainly went to Cerredolo. But the local shops in nearby Cavola have a few things to offer, the bakery there has fine produce, and the Sunday market is excellent. All in all a perfectly calm stay with breathtaking views all day round.
What a View!
Casa Stiano is a lovely comfortable house and everything was spotlessly clean. 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!
Erholung pur im Appennin Reggiano
Eigentlich war das Haus mit dem schönen Blick mitten in der Natur die Erholung selbst. Morgens auf der Terrasse frühstücken, mittags die Ruhe des Gartens mit blühendem Lavendel, wildem Wein und Feigenbäumen genießen ... Erholung pur. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und nichts vermisst. Das Haus ist sehr schön, liebevoll und gut ausgestattet. Besonders empfehlenswert für Naturfans: ein Ausflug zum Piedro di Bismantova und für Autofans: zum Ferrari Museum in Modena.
Danke! Wir freuen uns immer, wenn unsere Gäste einen schönen Urlaub in unserem Haus hatten.
Perfect for families!
