Overview

Photos and Description of this Varano de' Melegari holiday chateau / country house

La casa dello scoiattolo grigio is located in the peaceful hills of the Emilie-Romagne region, rich with history and culinary traditions, near magnificent artistic and medieval villages, castles and chapels of extraordinary beauty. Here, you will enjoy a quiet stay, in nature, and discover local culinary specialties.

The chalet consists on the first floor of 1 double room, a bunk bed room (for two persons) (with the possibility of adding a baby bed in the entrance), a bathroom with Jacuzzi shower, wc, air drier and all the necessary for your toilette. On chalet’s ground floor you find a double bedroom and bathroom with wc, shower, air drier and all necessary for your toilette.

The chalet is in warm pinewood décor and country design.

Descending three steps outside, on your right, a spacious kitchen equipped with oven, washing machine, dishwasher, induction cooking, refrigerator, micro-wave oven, coffee machine (we offer the coffee pods to our guests), cooking tools, on your left, a living room with a fireplace and a large veranda accessible in summer and winter.

Outside, there is a large yard with children’s games and relaxing spots, a marvelous barbeque to cook delicious steaks (a wood pile is available behind the house) which complete the residence and make it a place of calm and serenity.

Recommendations and activities

The house is the starting point for visiting numerous medieval castles and fortresses: some, like Varano de’ Melegari, Bardi, Compiano and Torrechiara, have remained intact, while others, in spite of being in partial ruins, continue to be very interesting. Near these fabulous places, you will also find the ancient Via Francigena - the path taken by pilgrims going to Rome, from which you will have a beautiful view of villages and hills.

There are a great number of activities available for all ages in winter or in summer, such as agricultural and regional product fairs, exhibits concerning ancient trades where you can participate in activities, butter-making workshops, and cheese and chocolate festivals.

In surrounding castles, you can take part in tournaments, just like those that took place during the Middle Ages. You will become brave knights, beautiful princesses, sorcerers or even ghosts during Halloween parties.

Thanks to the presence of the “Riccardo Paletti” racetrack and other famous automobile companies, our valley is also known as “Motor Valley”. For all those who are passionate about cars, there are numerous demonstrations, meetings and events that take place on the tracks.

For gourmets, there is a tremendous choice, our valley offering the possibility to discover specialties in the most refined restaurants, or in the more traditional “trattorie” (tortelli, cappelletti, lasagne, Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto e Lambrusco), in the convivial and joyful ambiance that is typical in our region.

The Toscane and Ligurie Sea is only 50 minutes away by car. There you will easily find “Cinque Terre” and “Versilia”.

The Ceno River that runs peacefully just in front the house is a perfect spot for picnics and barbeques, where you can relax, rocked by the sounds of the water and by the songs of cicadas in the summer sun.

A simple walk with your children on the grounds will bring you into nature, where you will regularly see deer, hares and other small forest animals. These experiences will be the most beautiful souvenirs for your children and for you.

you can also stay on the porch sitting in the seats that are available.

Pets allowed outside the facility.

When booking, we ask a deposit of 30% of the total. In any case we can accord by telephone.

Last information: outside the house circulate 4 cute cats, domestic and very affectionate, keepers of the house.

Accueil agréable et propriétaire très sympathique! Propre aux premiers abords mais finitions à revoir (fuite de douche, chambre du bas humide ...)

Owner's Response: Chers hôtes, Je vous remercie pour avoir choisi la Casa dello Scoiattolo grigio pour vos vacances. A votre départ j'avais vous assuré que j'aurai trouvé une solution pour les fuites d'eau de la douche de la chambre et maintenant le problème n'existe plus. L’humidité de la chambre : la chambre se trouve au rez-de-chaussée, elle est pour une partie sous - terre, surement elle est bien fraiche mais il peut être aussi une peu humide. Les hôtes préfèrent cette chambre parce qu’elle est un peu plus fraiche par rapport à celles du chalet. J’ai replacé toutes les fenêtres/carreaux doubles et j’ai mis des moustiquaires pour éviter les insectes mais il faut aussi tous les jours ouvrir les fenêtres et les volets peuvent être laissés aussi ouverts pour la lumière et le passage de l’air, comme je crois, tout le monde fait chez sa propre maison. Les maisons sont vielles et il y a surement des choses à améliorer mais je vous assurer mes efforts constants pour que les hôtes gardent un beau souvenir de la Casa dello Scoiattolo grigio Emanuela Casa dello Scoiattolo grigio

Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo passato 2 giorni splendidi in questa struttura perfetta per i bambini e per chi vuole rilassarsi. Giardino curatissimo, e attrezzatissimo per lo svago di grandi e piccini, casa completa di tutto quello che serve per soggiornare, comodo il barbecue. Per finire la proprietaria è gentilissima e ospitale. Consiglio vivamente a tutti!!!!
