Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Reggio Emilia

In a quiet historic part of the city, this recently restored authentic building is just metres away from the shops, cafes, enoteca's and restaurants (dine alfresco at one in the many local restaurants in the Piazza's), this large 128sq m spacious apartment with 2 large double bedrooms and 2 luxury marble bathrooms is fully equipped with plasma TV in sitting room and bedroom, stereo audio system in all rooms, beautiful marble and wood open modern kitchen with american style fridge and dishwasher. Stylishly furnished throughout for English owners use who now live nearby.


Skiing: From Reggio Emilia is it easy to reach the local Ski Resort of Febbio (its around 60km drive)

Febbio 2000 claims its position as the highest balcony on the Apennines. With its 3 chair lifts which climb up to an altitude of 2063 metres, Febbio 2000 is the highest winter sports resort in the northern Apennines. It offers skiers 12 kilometres of downhill slopes, which are constantly levelled and covered with artificial snow at a lower altitude. It is equipped with modern ski-lift systems. Special slopes for snowboard enthusiasts are provided in Febbio 2000 and also the higher part of the ski resort, which offers fantastic off-piste areas with natural ravines. Even for good skiers and lovers of downhill skiing, the area offers various possibilities for excursions and cross country ski of all levels and refuges at a high altitude. How to get there: take the provincial road 9 from Villa Minozzo towards Civago. When you reach Asta take the provincial road 99 towards Febbio.

Canossa and the Great lands of Matilda: Remembering the great Countess Matilda

The Apennine hills above Reggio Emilia are like a balcony provided by mother nature for looking out over the plain below and across as far as the Alps on clear days. They had an important role during the Middle Ages and still attract visitors today. Despite the ravages of time, the castles that represented the heart of the ancient lands ruled over by Matilda still hold the nostalgic appeal of the period straddling the eleventh and the twelfth centuries when the schemes of European politics unfolded among these woods and ravines and the heroes of the tales were Popes and Emperors.

Nowadays, what remains of these castles has been ravaged by the passing years yet they still hold great appeal and tell of serious events that unfolded in the past provided your imagination can stretch to see the fluttering of the flags, the beacons and the dispatch riders galloping to and fro.

Pietra Di Bismantova: The points of interest also include thePietra di Bismantovawith its massive, rocky cliff face soaring 1047 metres above sea level. A large expanse of fields stretches over the top of this flat mountain, covering an area of 12 hectares, and are surrounded by hornbeams and hazelnut trees. The Pietra di Bismantova and its surroundings is part of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park and is a very interesting site for both archaeologists and naturists.

The highest reaches of the Apennine Mountains of Reggio Emilia also bear traces of ancient glaciers, now extinct. During the ice age of the Quaternary period of the Ice Age (the last one was 10,000 years ago), several glaciers formed in the mountains above Reggio Emilia. As they slowly made their way downhill, the debris they took along with them eroded the terrain below. Traces of their passage can be seen in the form of huge amphitheatres, hewn out of the mountain sides in the Ozola valley at Lama di Mezzo or at the source of the river.

Spacious well-equipped clean and tidy apartment, central location, good restaurants nearby and a wonderful gelateria, two decent grocery stores in neighbourhood.

We would stay there again and would recommend it to others.

An absolutely beautiful flat in a gem of a city. Sarah's help and support prior to and during my stay was first rate. Was there in mid-November for a week long International Study Program at the Loris Malaguzzi Centre exploring the Reggio approach to early childhood education. Though I stayed there on my own, the flat would be ideal for a team visiting the centre from a school or a school district as it is a lovely 25 minute walk through the town to the centre. Amenities are steps away - restaurants, cafes, and a super market only steps outside the door of the flat.

Mille grazie!

Comfort, luxury, and location

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's house was the perfect place for our stay in Reggio Emelia. The quiet setting and well appointed rooms made us want to stay inside and enjoy the ambiance that Sarah has created. There was so much room for the two of us that we wished we had brought friends along. But when we were ready to explore we didn't need to go far. It was close to all the sights within the city and an easy walk to the train station for further exploration. This house made our week in Reggio the highlight of our month long Italian vacation.

Perfect location, comfortable apartment, live like an Italian!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay in Sarah's lovely apartment for 5 days in March. Sarah could not have been more accommodating even picking us up late at the train, leaving us items for breakfast and available at any time with any questions we had. It was very cold and rainy so the apartment fireplace, TV, local wine and comfortable apartment helped to pass an othewise miserable day. The kitchen is well equipped and the market is just around the corner for wine, groceries and other supplies. There is a wonderful Pizzeria for takeout just a few doors down and some of the best we had in Italy. Location is great for exploring Reggio Emilio and convenient for day trips to other towns. We went to Parma and Modena. Apartment is very clean with everything we needed and large enough for 2 couples if needed. Showers are typical European size. I cannot recommend this apartment enough to those wanting to live like a local and be comfortable, too!!.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment, in a great location! The apartment is spacious and clean (although showers are small) and nicely decorated. Great location for walking the city. Sarah arranged a parking pass for us as well as leaving us a computer for internet access. Reggio Emilia is low-key city, with great old Italian charm, and a perfect location for day trips.

Wonderful apartment in the centre of town

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is very spacious for 2 couples and is well equipped. There was even a pile of DVD's in English for us to watch! The apartment is situated in the centre of the old part of Reggio Emilia so we could walk to everything. There is a supermarket on the next corner and we enjoyed the nearby bars and the Taverna at the end of the street which served great food. The locals were extremely friendly and helpful. Sarah, the owner of the apartment, went out of her way to assist us,even organising computer access and a parking permit for us. We used the apartment as a base to visit cities in the region and found it easy to access the autostradas and major roads from there. There is a great market that we visited on a Tuesday morning ( also on Friday's) which extends around the major squares in the centre of town. There are many museums and churches to visit and good shopping and we loved the small cobbled streets that criss crossed the town. We would highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay in a beautiful region.
