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.

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Stiano is a little jewel in the midst of the Italian countryside. The house has been very tastefully decorated throughout and you will find absolutely everything you may need during your stay. The layout of the house enabled us to make the most of the amazing scenery and sunsets, whilst enjoying cooler nights in the downstairs bedrooms.

The area is really lovely and I would strongly recommend it for those who want a quiet time and be immersed in Italian culture.

The only issue we had was with the poor WiFi connexion, but I hear that this has been fixed.

Le repos loin des touristes

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique maison super bien équipée (même si internet fonctionne mal 20% du temps) au coeur d'une région éloignée des sentiers battus, mais aux paysages superbes. Promenades à pied ou en vélo, culture avec les villes de Bologne, Modène, Mantoue, ... , gastronomie, vous avez le choix.

Bonnes vacances à vous dans cette maison de Stiano, au milieu de nulle part.

A wonderful holiday in the 'hidden' Italy?

We offer our recently renovated six-person house, Casa Stiano, for rent. Casa Stiano is located in the village of Stiano in the foothills of the Apennines, in the province of Reggio Emilia and near the border of Tuscany. The house has three spacious double bedrooms, a lounge, a dining room/kitchen and two bathrooms. Two large terraces of 50 m2 each - both the front and rear of the house - offer a stunning view


Casa Stiano is located in the village of Stiano in the Emilia Romagna region (the province of Reggio Emilia), near the border with Tuscany. It is situated on a ridge in the foothills of the Apennines. Stiano is part of the municipality of Toano and dates from 1315.

From the large front terrace you have a magnificent view on the valley and the Pietra di Bismantova, a table mountain of 1000 meters in elevation. Your daily shopping and restaurants can be found in the neighbouring villages Toano and Cavola, both at about 4 km. distance. Please note that stores are generally closed from 12:00/12:30 to 15:00/15:30.

Both in the immediate vicinity of Casa Stiano and further afield there is much to see and do. Both near Casa Stiano (footpath 'Il sentiero Matilde ") and a little further away, you can practice all kinds of sporting activities. There are many opportunities for hiking, climbing, kayaking and cycling and also special motorcycle and car routes. The links below contain a wealth of information about the Parco Nazionale dell 'Tosco-Emiliano Apennines and examples of several activities. From Casa Stiano you can visit several towns and villages. Besides Bologna, Modena, Parma, Reggio Emilia, Pisa, Lucca and Florence a visit to Cinque Terre certainly is certainly worth. You can click the several buttons to get more information.


From our house you can enjoy many activities, both near and further away. Walking, cycling climbing, enjoying culture, all is possible. The picturesque Cinque Terre is about two and a half hours away and the beautiful cities of Bologna, Parma and Modena 1 to 1.5 hours. Florence can be reached in about two hours.


The Stiano region is dominated by the presence of several mountain ranges and has a microclimate; it does not rain much and it doesn’t become too hot.


The house is easily accessible by car and has its own parking. From the A1 motorway, it is about a 40 minutes drive on a two lane road. By plane you can fly to various airports (Bologna, Pisa and Bergamo). Our house is not accessible by public transport.

Quality and hygiene

The interior of the house is decorated comfortably and cozy. We also thought of quality and hygiene. We use robust and easy to clean materials.


Bringing your pet is allowed on request.


A lot is permitted in our house, but smoking is not allowed.


Casa Stiano is equipped with free wireless internet access.
