Rosa's host was lovely- with rustic stonework and details along with modern amenities. The space is really roomy and comfortable with a great stone fireplace. Even though the weather was rainy we were very cozy and warm.
Rosa and Leonardo were lovely hosts- Leonardo met us along to road to direct us to the house when we arrived in the middle of some thick fog and checked on us to make sure we had enough wood for the stove.
I highly recommend this property.
Notre séjour de deux nuits, s'est très bien passé et nous avons été très bien accueillis par le mari de Rosa (que nous n'avons jamais vue mais qui nous avait gentiment préparé un Tiramisu de bienvenue).
Nous sommes venus fin novembre 2014,et à notre arrivée la maison était glacée (nous avons vraiment eu froid le premier soir).
Et bien que l'annonce ne le précisait pas, nous avons du payer 25€ par nuit le chauffage au gaz et 6€ la caisse de bois pour la cheminée.
Juste pour arriver à un peu réchauffer la maison et supporter le froid.
Facturer le chauffage à 750€ par mois, c'est hors de prix et c'est donc un vrai problème en hiver il vaut mieux le savoir avant de réserver. Sinon tout le reste était parfait.
Fabulous house, well appointed. Having rented houses before, this is the first time that what I saw is really what I got. Great kitchen, great bathrooms and bedrooms. Rosa and her family were extremely accommodating and helpful. The location is excellent if you want to explore Emilia Romagna and Cinque terra. (albeit a bit far from freeway but as a result it is set in a beautiful country side)
Amazing house that surpassed our expectations. It is really charming and rustic but still very clean and has been restored and furnished beautifully. We loved the fact that it is in the country side. There is beautiful view over the surrounding mountains and valleys. I read in the other reviews that the house was hard to find but if you put "Boio" as the city in your GPS, it should find it. Otherwise you just drive to Solignano and ask around or call the host. I highly recommend this place if you want a sense of the old Italian country life. The location is perfect, we used it as a station between Parma, Bologna, Cinque Terre, Pisa. There was 5 of us so this 3 bedroom house was very good value for the money!
Rosas farm house was beautifull
A great kitchen and great fireplace
The rooms are big and clean and the view is beautifull, we just walked around and enjoyed
Although it is far away in the hill there is a close good supermarket and nice places to eat 30 min away
Only prob is no internet or mobile connection in the place, we had to drive 10 min to call or surf
Best thing is small things ! When we arrived on a winter cold day the fire place was working for us and rosa baked us a cake , it was charming
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Rosalba's home for two nights. Even with my wife and four kids, it was a very roomy, quaint, well appointed, and enjoyable place to relax. The home itself is situated in a small, isolated village (of maybe 4-5 other homes) on a hillside overlooking the valley. If you're looking for a quiet place to get away, this is certainly it. While we never got a chance to meet Rosalba, but she left us an excellent coconut torte! Of course the hardest part was getting there which requires a winding ascension up the side of the mountain which took about 10 minutes (with little in between it and the city). The best way to get there is by following the directions provided by an earlier reviewer (strictly using the GPS address will only get you tot he city at the bottom of the hill).
My boyfriend and I stayed in Rosalba's beautiful house for a week in early February 2012 and even though the area had record negative temperatures and snowfall, we still had an amazing time.
The house itself is very authentic rustic Italian. It has two large living spaces and a very well equipped kitchen with dining area. The wood fireplace was heavenly and although the house was a little draughty (mainly due to the front door being an old medieval style door) the gas heating kept us warm even on the coldest days. The two bathrooms were clean, tidy and very modern. Rosalba supplied lovely fluffy towels and good quality linen during our stay. The main bedroom was lovely and warm thanks to ducted heating from the fireplace and has the most AMAZING views of the hills, such a treat to wake up to. The bed was the most comfortable we had slept in during our 6 months of travel.
Rosalba and her family were fantastic hosts. We were treated to a home made cheese cake, jam and local frizzante on arrival and Rosalba and her brother dropped by halfway through our stay to help shovel snow away from the entrance to the house.
There was a great wifi cafe in Fornovo (25 min drive from the house, shorter when there is no snow on the road) and lots of local supermarkets in nearby towns to choose from.
The house is a little bit tricky to find and our GPS didn't recognise the address so Rosalba's husband met us down at the base of the hill and showed us the way. The easiest way to find the house is to head up the hill from Solignano (approx 6km drive) at the t-intersection, take a right and then take the first driveway on your right. The house is the first you will come to on the left.
Overall, we would highly recommend a stay at Rosalba's gorgeous home. Suitable for couples and families - all year round! (Of course, you have to be comfortable indoors when there is snow around).
