*This property is in beautiful isolation* at the edge of a mountain village. Perfect for visiting Tuscany or Emilia, the house is in a quiet hamlet on the Emilia/Tuscany border, 1hr or less from Florence, Bologna, Lucca and Pisa. The house is surrounded by a large private woodland and is ideal for adventurous people who want to walk, explore, build log fires in the evening and hear very little other than bird song, woodpeckers, owls and the odd wild boar. It is an ideal location for mountain walking and for wild swimming in lakes, streams, rivers and numerous waterfalls. The woods have many attractions including a tree house with a view and an abandoned village. Great for adventurous children! It is perfect for foragers on the hunt for porcini and chestnuts or for flora and fauna enthusiasts. The stars at night are brilliantly bright.
The nearest airports are Florence, Bologna and Pisa, all roughly 1hr away, (Bologna Forli 2hrs). The quiet spa town of Porretta Terme, with restaurants bars and a health complex, is 20 mins away. Less than 5kms from the house are local shops, a train station and several pretty Tuscan villages with banks, small hotels, restaurants, bars etc. It is a comfortable family home and not for those looking for hotel-standard luxury. The 1km road to the house from the main road up the mountain is steep.
Other Activities: Health and beauty centre at spa town Porretta Terme, large lake with beaches, cafes, pedalos and boat hire, excellent local restaurants, sightseeing and skiing (winter only!)

I lived in Emilia Romagna after leaving school and then again while studying Italian at university. I have 3 children who love the house and the surrounding woods. There are fairies there, as they will tell you!
Candida purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Candida chose Granaglione
I have travelled every region of Italy but always come back to Emilia Romagna for its wonderful food, warm and welcoming people, history and lack of tourists. For me it is the epitome of everything I love about Italy. This house is in a small village where the partisans hid out. The views are stunning, the night skies are filled with stars and the screeching of owls and a stay there is pure medicine for the soul.
What makes this Cottage unique
utter peace and quiet. Not a tourist in sight. Excellent wild swimming in nearby lakes, rivers and waterfalls, fantastic foraging opportunities, tree house!
